Here Comes the Sun

Last year, Happi reported a downward trend in sun care sales for 2003 despite heavy marketing efforts and UV-education initiatives. That’s all in the past now—suntan product sales increased 2.3% to $418.1 million for the 52 weeks ended Dec. 26, 2004, according to Information Resources, Inc., Chicago. (These figures are for supermarkets, drug stores and mass merchandisers, excluding Wal-Mart.) This is brilliant news for marketers, who introduced new products and tweaked old favorites during

How to Plan a Family Reunion

How long has it been since your family last got together for an all-out reunion? If your answer is "too long," don't worry -- help is here! We've outlined the steps you'll need to take to organize a big bash for your extended family. Read on for the scoop on how to plan a family reunion. Grab a pen and paper (or open a Word document) and start listing family members. To keep things easy, count the members of each nuclear family first, then go outward. In other words, count yourself, your husban

How Good is YOUR Club's Customer Service?

It's so simple, yet so effective: to stand above other clubs, be the one restaurant (and club establishment) that goes the extra mile in getting to know your clientele. Most club owners are very aware of the concept, and probably think they're delivering when it comes to club members' dining experience. Our advice: don't be too sure. Clients don't always complain about what they see as substandard or impersonal service; occasionally, they simply leave...something you definitely don't want.

Hair Care: A Growing Market

Each year, Happi asks marketers what’s new in hair care. This year, it might have been easier to ask what isn’t new. Straightening is in, but so is leaving curly hair natural; short and sassy is no hotter than long and lustrous. Some all-grays are staying gray, but many women with 30% or fewer grays are reaching for the dye. If there’s any one trend in hair care for 2004, it is the trend of polar opposites. Sorting through the amazing array of choices, it is easy to see that individuali

Your Very Own Royal Wedding | Your Wedding Whisperer

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s impending nuptials are all over the news and the net of late. Or rather, Kate’s part of the wedding is all over the news. (O William, where art thou?) Kate’s ring, Kate attempting to gain weight (I’m really trying to feel sorry for her right now), Kate’s possible hairstyle, wedding gown, entourage, what the Queen Mum has to say about things. Kate, Kate, Kate. (Said in my best “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!” voice.) Jealous yet? Don’t be. You can have your very own

Looking for Some New Digs? Dracula's Castle is on the Market

Looking for Some New Digs? Dracula’s Castle is on the Market With home prices on an upswing, it’s downright frightening for wannabe buyers right now in the world of real estate. But things just got even scarier with the announcement that the infamous Bran Castle – the legendary digs associated with the late Prince Vlad Dracul – is up for sale. As most horror (and history) fanatics know, Dracul was the inspiration for Brahm Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula, which spawned movies, books and a pop cul

A Tribute To Wes Craven (1939-2015)

This past Sunday, horror appreciators everywhere received the sad news that Hollywood legend Wes Craven had passed away. The horror film master, who had been battling brain cancer, succumbed to his illness in his Los Angeles home on Aug. 30, 2015. He was 76. The world will remember Mr. Craven as the scream king who brilliantly brought us such classics as The Hills Have Eyes, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare and the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. Here is our tribute to the man, the movies and the

Say What? Christmas Already?

Christmas is coming – are you ready? Don’t feel bad; neither are we. Oh sure, my mother in law has been QVC-ing her little heart out since August in anticipation of the winter holidays, of which my family celebrates several (Christmas and Hannukah are the first two that come to mind). And yes, I admit to having purchased a few more miniature homes for my already quite elaborate Christmas Village scene. But other than Example Numero Uno above (hyper-ready) and Example Dos (me…the eternally lag

Speedy Delivery

My first labor was long, painful and augmented with Pitocen — what I affectionately call “the Devil drug." So I swore it would be different the second time. When people asked me how long I was going to continue working through the pregnancy, I told them, “My due date is July 3. My last day at work is July 2.” When quizzed about when Hubby and I would be zooming off to the hospital at breakneck speed, I would reply, “Not until I see either a head or a foot.” I was only half-joking. I had no d
