Introducing The New Toffee Princess Gift Box

Introducing The New Toffee Princess Gift Box

After five years in business, I have a brand new style of gift box! When I first started out on this adventure, I designed my gift box based on some lovely date boxes I’d seen in town. The end result was a lovely tapered oblong box with my logo (the old one) embossed discreetly in the corner. The interior of the box was beautiful, shiny gold and suitable to put food items straight into. As a newby at all this, I wasn’t confident enough to shout my name from the rooftops so the branding and information about my toffee went inside the box which was all tied up with a pretty ribbon....

JESS School Entrepreneurship Challenge 2014

JESS School Entrepreneurship Challenge 2014

For the past three years, I have had the pleasure of visiting JESS Primary School in Jumeirah to talk to the year 6 pupils about my business. They then split into groups of 4-5 and work together towards the annual Entrepreneurship Challenge. They have to come up with an item to make and sell, they have to market it and then over the course of three days in March, they open a crafters market at the school for the teachers, parents and pupils to come and buy their creations. Yesterday I visited their market to see what all their hard work had produced. As always, I was extremely impressed with...

Maison Mathis at Arabian Ranches Golf Club

Maison Mathis at Arabian Ranches Golf Club

Filling a gap in the market by providing another licensed premises in the area,  Maison Mathis, located at the Arabian Ranches Golf Club opened its doors recently to much anticipation. Being a resident of Arabian Ranches, I have a keen interest on what’s going on in my neighbourhood and have been reading other peoples thoughts on the place, from the good to the downright dreadful. To be fair, they are still in their soft opening period so bear this in mind when reading – everyone deserves a chance and that’s why we have such things as soft openings. I met friends there for...
