Happy August, ya'll! I know it's the 6th but I haven't chatted with you since July. Nikki's Magic Wand is moving along. We have been busy bees and I've got some updates for you.
QVC: When we last chatted, our intern had submitted us and we heard back from them. Since that time, I gave them a sample for their Quality Assurance area to review and we passed the review with flying colors. :) Next they needed an Inventor's Bio, some pics and a video, which we had to feverishly shoot so, now we're ready for the next step, being featured on QVC.com and having YOU vote, so get ready!
Style Week Pittsburgh: We are a "Chic" Sponsor for this inaugural event and I attended the kick off party at Spa Jema (www.spajema.com), which is a lovely spa in downtown Pittsburgh with amazing services. You MUST check it out. And GUESS WHAT???? The lovely Jennifer, who owns Spa Jema, is going to carry our Wands in her retail area. *Big Smile*. Style Week runs from August 7th to the 11th and I will be attending a number of the fashion, beauty events so maybe I'll see you there!
NY Fashion Week: This is only a month away (where does the time go????) so we're preparing to attend and VERY excited! As I mentioned, we will be in the celebrity gifting suite and I am very eager to see who will be there and I am claiming that we WILL make a connection with someone fabulous who will LOVE Nikki's Magic Wand so much that they will want to endorse it.
TV: I have a meeting with Tim from a local tv station here to discuss airing a commercial. That meeting is this Thursday, so I'll let you know how it goes AND I got this e-mail a few days ago:
My girlfriend loves your product. Her mom, Myrna, sent her one...
I have been in the live TV business since 1987.
I wonder if you'd be interested in doing a two minute spot or selling on HSN or
QVC. I may be able to help. Please let me know if you're interested.
Can you see my Happy Dance? I read a quote today that said, " A woman who walks in purpose does not have to chase people or opportunities. Her light causes people and opportunities to pursue her." I really, really believe that because e-mails like Tom's are coming.
I had a recent chat with our Chinese liaison, Daisy and she shared that they're in a bit of a financial crunch over there so if you (or anyone you know) need some moldmaking and/or manufacturing done, let me know and I can put you in touch with Daisy. She is great to work with and I'd love to send some work her way if possible.
Well, I think that's it for now. As always, I thank you for reading and please keep checking us out.
I promise you, we're going to BLOW UP!
