avatar Enjoy a shot of sunshine!

Posted In by Comments Off on Enjoy a shot of sunshine!

I think it’s fair to say that you can never predict the type of summer we’ll have in the UK. Optimists may predict an Indian summer following a wet and windy June, but being  a realist I have learnt to keep my expectations low when it comes to the ‘Great British Summer’. Lucky then that we have our own shots of sunshine available at Bliss in the form of 3 tanning drinks, cleverly designed to maximise your tanning session and... View Article

avatar The Great Bliss Bake Off – Round 1

Posted In by Comments Off on The Great Bliss Bake Off – Round 1

Last month we held the first round of our Great Bliss Bake Off 2013! Putting forward their best efforts were Beau, Caroline and Gail and as well as a rather inspired entry from myself (ahem). The theme was ‘anything goes’ and it certainly did, with a mix of cake pops, brownies, sponges and cupcakes. Our judges were Donna and Mark, 2 culinary connoisseurs with an eye for creativity and a set of very sweet teeth… Both were reasonably impressed with the presentation... View Article

We love this time of year in the Bliss office – it’s the start of the season and new product time! There’s nothing we like more than getting our hands on something new to try out and smell so we can pass all this info on to our customers.  I always like to have a good sniff of anything before I buy it, especially if it is going to be on my skin all day. The latest offering to land in our... View Article

Posted In by Comments Off on New season training

The start of the season means lots of new products to learn about, and last week we were lucky enough to have the lovely Michael from California Tan come all the way from their HQ in Indianapolis, USA to give us some new product training. This is the second time Michael has been in to see us now, and this guy sure knows his stuff! Focussing very much on premium skincare ingredients and the latest tanning agents and trends, California Tan... View Article

Posted In by Comments Off on Monday Morning ‘Bruise’

So picture it – Monday morning and I’m heading into Leeds on my way to a meeting to discuss the latest technology of sunless tanners. After encountering several pile ups and the odd traffic jam I’m running a little behind (probably only about 10 minutes but I hate being late). After parking my beloved car near our warehouse facility I’m fortunate enough to bump into John (an absolute legend and the longest-serving member of the warehouse team), who generously offers...

Posted In by Comments Off on The Great Bliss Bake Off 2013!

It’s rolling pins at the ready as we here at Bliss ‘bake’ this a year to remember…..we are about to launch our first annual ‘Great Bliss Bake Off’, inspired by our favourite telly programme of a very similar name. The show caused quite a ‘stir’ at Bliss Towers last year, and in anticipation of the new series we thought we’d have a go ourselves! Some of the team fancy themselves as amateur bakers, so they’ll be pitted against each other... View Article

Last week saw the landing of behemoth; a delivery of product so epic in proportions it has achieved legendary status here at Bliss. It has been unrivalled by any other in the history of Bliss deliveries and we have even started a new list in its honour, the Top Ten Biggest Bliss Deliveries Ever List (or the ‘TTBBDE’ list for short). Having worked here for over 7 years now, I’ve seen my fair share of consignment giants arriving in the warehouse (typically 5 minutes... View Article

. . . but if it had have ended, you all would have had one hell of a tan! Lots of exciting new products were launched at the start of the season, with black bronzing formulas seemingly more popular than ever.  Here is a list of your top ten best-selling products for 2012 . . . The Accelerators 1. Fiesta Sun Key Lime Pie – I’d never heard of a Key Lime Pie before (I’m more of a Cornish pasty... View Article

We’re an excitable bunch at Bliss. We love being inspired and we hope to inspire right back. So I was totally thrilled to receive a sample – and a very special one at that – from Fiesta Sun for a new product they have just launched within their ‘Fruity Scentsations’ line called ‘Mango Melt’. Now it’s always wonderful to get a freebie (just one of the many perks I’m lucky enough to get in my job), but this sample was... View Article
