JustBe's named as a Small Business 100

I'm thrilled that JustBe's included in this years Small Business Saturday's 100 - a 100 day campaign celebrating independent business throughout the UK that culminates on the 1st Satuday in December to encourage us to shop small. Joining JustBe are 6 other Scottish based businesses. Part of the celebrations include a UK wide bus tour, which will arrive into Edinburgh on Tuesday the 25th of September.

I'm just managing to draw breath after a busy and enjoyable Edinburgh Festival. August's such a great time to be out & about in Edinburgh, and this year was no exception. I was delighted to share bars of JustBe's chocolate with so many well known faces including Olly Murs & the Steve Wright in the Afternoon team (which is also a great way to get a selfie!) 🍫

The winner of this years JustBe Loved Edinburgh Festival award was Alan Cumming for Sappy Songs as part of the International Festival. The 2 shortlisted entrie were HERBERT - the Hendrick's bus experience & The Big Breakfast by Bite-Size Plays 🌟  


The winning blend for the JustBe Fabulous Tea Competition at WhiteStuff, Edinburgh was Spearmint, Rose & Lavender as suggested by Chantal  Balmer from Glasgow. JustBe Fabulous will be exclusively available to enjoy instore at the Meet & Make area of the George Street branch.

Thanks to everyone who entered and for those who came along on Saturday to help with the judging.
