Our 1st Birthday

This is a round-up of the events we held during the month of June, to celebrate Jacq and Rose’s 1st birthday.

While the idea for Jacq and Rose started a few years ago, it was in June 2106 when we received our first coral triangle tester wrap.  Soon after we set up the Jacq and Rose Facebook page and our Instagram account.  So, we decided that June 2017 was a good time to celebrate our first year looking back at all that we’d achieved so far and also look forward to the future.

Over the month of June, we held a number of competitions and challenges.  Our first challenge was a creative challenge to win a custom set of mama metal links to match our Tri design.

Last Autumn, we’d commissioned Choollery, another British brand, to custom make two sets of silver links to match our Tri design.  One set was featured in our Diadema Black photoshoot at the time, which we kept and they are very special to us.

The other set was kept, ready, to give away as a special prize to celebrate our 1st Birthday

The winner of this creative challenge was Sarah Persin with her video entitled “Triangles”.  We loved that she got her children to participate to make triangle shapes on the floor and it even featured her Tri Blue Tang wrap.

Our 2nd birthday competition was to win a £50 gift voucher plus a Tri Corallium Pink cowl, a J&R rucksack, a pocket mirror and keyring!

To enter the competition we asked everyone to complete a questionnaire.  We were keen to see what changes need to be made to improve our products and services better.

Our winner, who was drawn at random, to receive the prize was Kim Maiden.

We had over 100 entries to this competition and were so overwhelmed with the responses we received on the questionnaires.

Below is a summary of the comments we received when we asked you what you thought about our wraps.

We were also delighted to see that of those that had tried our wraps (103 people surveyed, 65 had tried our wraps), 100% would recommend them to a friend!

Plus we will also be implementing some changes to our packaging and our website as a result of the feedback received.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the questionnaires – we thoroughly enjoyed reading all the comments.

Our third challenge was a caption contest for our beautiful photo from The Dukes – Babywearing Photography.  The prize was a large scrap of Tri Baltic (~0.5m) and a teething necklace from Pebbles & Lace Teething Jewellery.

We are a big fan of Pebbles & Lace Teething Jewellery and you may recall they featured in Jacq and Rose’s first photoshoot last year. 

Our winner of this contest was Colleen Van Dyk and you can see her winning caption on the photo below.

Our fourth, and final birthday contest, was to win a beautiful size 6, Tri Okenia Rose and a Lipsense Starter Kit which we purchased from The Pouty Mama which included a lip colour, ‘Fleur De Lisa’, a Glossy Gloss and an Oops! Remover.  We chose to include a Lipsense Kit as we absolutely love their lipsticks – they last all day and because of their amazing staying power, they don’t transfer onto our wraps!

We hope you enjoyed celebrating our 1st birthday as much as we did.  It has been an exciting year with lots of wonderful memories.  We look forward to another fantastic year ahead of us!
