None of us can deny that 2020 has been a very strange year, but we hope that, despite the challenges, there are positives we can all take with us into a wonderful 2021.
When we're all so busy and constantly working hard, we sometimes forget to take a minute to reflect and look back on things we're grateful for and that have been a success - no matter how big or small.
To help spread some positivity coming into next year, we are delighted to review what has been a really exciting year for Doctor Seaweed's Weed & Wonderful.
Take a look what's been Wonderful for Doctor Seaweed's this year...
1. Doctor Seaweed's first LIVE TV appearance!
2. Doctor Seaweed Weed & Wonderful announces listing in Boots
With QVC underway, interest in the Doctor Seaweed's Weed & Wonderful range was growing and we managed to secure our first listing in Boots stores up and down the UK. A huge and very proud moment for us all.
3. Doctor Seaweed & Ricky Wilson entertain charity raffle winner at the Kaiser Chiefs O2 mega gig
Thankfully squeezed in just before pandemics hit, in February 2020 Doctor Seaweed was able to take some VIP charity auction winners to see the Kaiser Chiefs live at the O2 London, with the money going to incredible charities.
4. We get "shelvish" with new listing in Selfridges
And the listings keep coming - this timing we're getting "shelvish" with another retailer as Doctor Seaweed's Weed & Wonderful seaweed products appear in the stunning Selfridges stores.
5. Doctor Seaweed gets the 'seal' of approval at local aquarium
It's not all work and no play for Doctor Seaweed as he regularly volunteers at the local aquarium to help clean the shark and seal tanks. On this very special occasion, he quite literally 'sealed' the visit with a kiss of appreciation from one of the resident seals.
6. We Celebrate VE day with...
The special moment of friends and neighbours coming safely together to honour and remember VE Day was socially-distanced celebrated from driveways and streets around the country
7. Our Pure Organic Seaweed Capsules wins QVC Beauty Award
One of the biggest thrills of the year was being awarded by QVC the Best Beauty Supplement. This was so special as it was voted for by the QVC viewers, to whom we are a relatively new brand, and we beat off some incredibly good competition. Thanks again to QVC and the viewers for this fantastic award.
8. Liz Earle LOVES Doctor Seaweed's Weed & Wonderful products
The first of many collaborations and endorsements from beauty and wellness expert Liz Earle as part of her Liz Loves offers. Liz very carefully selects products and brands she will endorse to her followers, and we were delighted to be one of them (don't forget that the LIZLOVES code works until December 31st with a HUGE 25% discount!!)
9. We launched a new Weed & Wonderful website
With a new website launched for Doctor Seaweed's Weed & Wonderful products, we saw an unbelievable record month online and an influx of new customers breaking all prior records! It's been great to see so many positive 5* reviews coming from our new customers too.
10. Two new people join our wonderful Team
With all this excitement and new opportunity, we were delighted to hire two new people to join the wonderful team who will help make sure we keep giving you the very best Weed & Wonderful experience! Here's our commercial manager Liam pictured below with Doctor Seaweed.
11. We Launch our new Immunity+ Seaweed Capsules - helping to support your immune health at just the right time
12. Incredible Customers...
We haven't been able to meet and greet customers as much as we would have liked, but we have received a whole host of positive messages and 5-star reviews across all platforms, for which we are incredibly grateful.
With all the amazing positivity and success, it is only possible with our fantastic partners and incredible customers.
So for that I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you once again and wish you all the very best for 2021.
Here's to many not weird...but wonderful things to come next year!
