February has been an absolutely crazy month of celebration here at Eco Tan and Eco By Sonya Driver. Why? Because three of our organic best sellers were awarded internationally in the Natural Health International Beauty Awards 2016!
The Natural Health International Beauty Awards celebrate the very best in natural and organic beauty from around the world. Also, these awards are of the highest standard in the beauty industry as experts test, the editor approves and readers vote for the winners.
We can’t contain how excited we are!
It was only a year ago that we first arrived in the UK and Sonya and some of the wonderful ladies in the Eco Tan team visited London. Fast forward 12 months and not only did we beat our big players in the UK – for their own home-grown accolades! We are also celebrating 3 of our organic products as heroes in the natural beauty market!
This Tuesday, some of our very lucky staff members got to spend the day “working” on the set of the Firefighters Calendar Australia shoot for next years calendar!
Starting the day bright and early we had to make our way to Mount Nathan to meet some firefighters for the Firefighters Calendar Australia shoot… We thought we reached our destination! Oops! We ended up in someone’s house before realising that we were in the wrong spot!
Not to worry, the day was soon saved when we re-grouped and it wasn’t all bad… we walked onto the set to find this:
Well 2015 has been kind to me personally and to our Eco Tan team.
I really hope our loyal customers have blossomed and thrived in 2015. Just a few quick highlights!
At the age of 49 my family and I moved in our first house that we built. To begin with we had a small pool ? In the extreme heat of QLD! Given this, we are going to truly enjoy our first summer in 10 years. This house was on my vision board for 8 years.
Personal Highlights in 2015
After being a single mum for the past 7 years, to now living with Gary (who has been in our lives for the last 5 years) the compromise has been interesting! Poor bastard doesn’t know what all the screaming is about. We scream when we are excited, sad, mad whatever. We love noise. That’s why we built him a man room with a dirty big telly.
Since its conception, Eco Tan has always been out in the community, helping other small businesses grow in the same way. Sonya’s core beliefs has driver her to always be happy to offer FREE mentoring advice to other businesses. Thus, the ‘Eco Community Mentoring’ program was born… Through Sonya’s natural passion for giving back and sharing her blessings with others.
Although, London was a rocky start. After 3 flights and almost 24 hours of flying, the last thing we were expecting was to be in a car accident. We were just driving out of Heathrow airport, we slammed on the brakes only to land in the back of a car and have a black cab land in the back of us. With both air bags deployed and one of them hitting Sonya in the face. Leaving her battered and bruised. We were shocked to say the least.
The worst part was having to wait another 3 hours on the side of the highway. Especially in the London temperatures we weren’t yet used to in order for the insurance company to come and pick us up.
After this chaos subsided it was 3am in the morning and that’s when the jet lag hit us hard! We found ourselves sitting in our pyjama’s at a 24 hour cafe two mornings in a row. We ordered scrambled eggs while the people next to us stumbled in from the local night club and ordered shots!
But all in all it was a wonderful experience where we finally got to meet fans of Eco Tan and Eco by Sonya.
