As most of us ladies at Glotime are familiar with diets, whether it be Slimming World, Weight Watchers, Atkins or another form of weight loss, we are excited to discover an inspirational idea which is now becoming a truly successful business, ‘The Skinny Box’.
Mother and daughter, Dee and Holly Richards were the inspiration for this fabulously innovative startup business venture, when daughter Holly who has lost 6.5 stone since February last year after the birth of her second son Elliot.
Dee and Holly were living in France when they started her journey and had often thought of business ideas to fit in with their Slimming World lifestyle, so was always pondering with ideas. But it actually fits in with a variety of diets.
After returning to the UK to live in April of this year, they both went on a Spa break where they had to stay overnight and so took some treats with them as there was nothing on offer to keep them on plan…that was when they had a lightbulb moment and ‘The Skinny Survival Box’ was born!
