May Newsletter

Can you believe we are already 4 months into 2020 rubies? We must say this year has been a real test for us all, and this May newsletter is dedicated to you, our rubies.

Please know that we stand together with you through this unknown journey and will be here for you in every way we possibly can.


Mother’s Day this year falls on Sunday, 10th May, and although it might seem more difficult to show your appreciation during the lockdown, we think it’s the perfect opportunity to get creative and sentimental with your gifts.

Last year you might have taken her for lunch, this year why not write her a poem, or pick some photos and put together a video slide of you and your mom. These types of things have more meaning and value to mothers. Whatever you do, be sure to make her feel special and loved.


We launched our #rubiestalk a few weeks ago which is an open chat forum for all our rubies to connect, inspire, help, and meet each other through weekly topics. Our first conversation topic here was positivity and we had an amazing response, thank you to all our rubies who commented and took part.


Looking at the comments makes you realize that everyone is fighting a battle in some way or another.

Wendy Morley, Janet Igesa, Juanita Bezuidenhoudt, Helena Morgan, Phindyluv, Chantal Harmse, Azania Muse – Thank you for sharing your stories. We are sending you all so much love and positivity.

Click here if you would like to suggest future topics or simply give feedback.



Over the next month, we are able to slowly start sending products for test & review with safety measures in place. See below for all open opt-in surveys for upcoming product send-outs:
