September Newsletter 2020

Hello September [Newsletter]

rubies, happy September and happy Spring! There is officially 4 months left of this life-changing, crazy year, 2020 – can you believe it? We certainly can’t.

If this year taught us something, it was to stay positive and to help others in a time of difficulties and uncertainty. It’s not easy, we know, being kind to yourself or staying positive when you are not entirely sure what tomorrow or the following week looks like.

But, we are here for each other and finding peace in the small things that make us happy. Which brings us to our fav topic and something that has been very emphasised this year, self-love. It’s easy to convey love to others, but it so important to learn what your SELF-love language is, to show yourself the kindness and love you deserve. Here are some examples of what the 5 love languages looks like by showing yourself love:

  • Quality time: Spend some quality time with yourself. Watch a movie you love, do arts & crafts, start a garden or go on a walk/ hike!
  • Physical touch: Do your skincare routine, do some light yoga/ stretches, take a bubble bath or eat your fav fruit or veg.
  • Acts of service: Declutter and tidy up your personal space, donate to charity or meal prep your fav lunch.
  • Words of affirmation: Compliment yourself in the mirror, write positive notes, watch a TED Talk on your fav topic, or write down what you are thankful for every morning.
  • Receiving gifts: Invest in your hobbies, start a DIY project, buy yourself a tea/ coffee that calms you or just go out and treat yourself!!

We challenge you to try at least one of these this month. Do something you love, you truly deserve it. What is your self-love language? Let us know in the comments ♥︎ Share your self-love ideas with others!

What we have going on this month

We have a couple of exciting test & review products coming up for hair, skin and something for our rubies’ men! A reminder to please make sure your delivery address in your beauty profile is up to date. We still have some rubies who match products but do not have a delivery address, so we have to remove them from the selected group 🙁
