Cabineto Movember montage

Remember, remember, the end of movember
Facial fuzz and no shaving rash.
We see no reason
In this jolly season
To avoid growing a mighty ‘tache!

It’s been a tough ol’ month for our brave, bushy companions, who look more and more like Burt Reynolds’ long-lost sons every darn day! Feast your eyes on our Movember gallery and you’ll see what we mean…

Still, their efforts have been extremely hilarious impressive, and they’ve raised a good amount of cash for the very worthy Movember cause. Our little deTerra mascot, Cabineto, has also tried to get in on the act – sadly he hasn’t received any sponsorship yet, but secret whisperings have reached my ears that the Powers that Be at deTerra HQ might donate an extra sum to our boys’ Movember page, just so that Cabineto can feel included.

Okay, that’s a fib – the money will be donated to their Movember page because of their excellent work, not Cabineto’s. But I refuse to tell him. It will break his little solid wood heart.

(his little solid wood kitchen door doesn’t quite have the same ring to it).

Anywho, not only is it the end of Movember, but the change of month also heralds the end of our jolly November sale – woe. Make sure you get your orders for oak kitchens and other timberiffic goodies in ASAP, these savings are not to be missed!

10% off in our Winter sale!

Brrrrrrr!

Sorry, folks; we realise that isn’t much of a greeting, but golly gosh – there’s a wee nip in the air. Winter has well and truly set in.

Good job we have a smashing November promotion to cheer you up! There’s no better time to revamp your oak kitchen with some painted door frontals; maybe a solid wood worktop or two; or even some delightful deTerra accessories, because we’re offering a 10% discount across all products. Better still, if you order before the end of November you can have your whole kitchen by Christmas. Not bad, eh?

To take advantage of this super saving, all you have to do is tippety tap the code ‘DET10’ into the relevant box at checkout. The discount will be automatically applied for you – no muss, no fuss! But be sure to get your orders in soon: our offer ends on the 30th November.

Facial fuzzers of the world, unite!

deTerra are officially doing Movember.

That’s right, several excellent gentlemen from our office – or, as they now call it, the ‘mo’ffice – have pledged their faces and time to this wonderful cause for the whole month. The aim of the game is to raise much-needed cash and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health; as the Movember team put it, participants are ‘changing their appearance and the face of men’s health’.

Fortunately, deTerra men aren’t only naturally disposed towards creating solid wood kitchens – they’re also naturally furry beings. As such we’ve already documented some fairly impressive growth; where faces were fresh and smooth as babies’ behinds just two weeks ago, sturdy handlebar moustaches have now sprouted in joyous abandon. We suspect that by the end of the month we’re going to be looking at something downright bushy.

Over to you: what do you think of our efforts? Are our lads worthy of sponsorship? If you’re as tantalised by our ‘taches as you are by our wooden kitchen units and timber worktops, please visit the Movember website and donate some money to the DOS (deTerra Opposes Shaving) team*.

And if you can’t do it for them, do it for Cabineto… he just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to join in, too.

* …just kidding. DOS stands for Direct Online Services Ltd, the company behind the delightful deTerra brand.

Hi-zers, deTerra peeps,

What a fabulous Friday. Not only is today the day that we announce the winner of our ah-maze-ing iPad competition, but we’re also launching a new sale!

In the style of Chandler from Friends, could this day be any better?!

First things first: we’re giving away an iPad, and we’re doing it right now! Many Apple-hungry fans entered our Facebook competition with the hope of getting mitts on this funky little gadget, but only one could be crowned the winner (much to the dismay of deTerra mascot Cabineto – bless him).

And that winner is… David Jackson!

Congratulations, David! Be sure to send us a pic of you enjoying your prize…

As for all you iPad-hopefuls out there, don’t despair: deTerra cares (ooh, we made a rhyme). We know how dark and cold the month of November can be, with not even a sprig of mistletoe to brighten up your hearth, or the glow of an iPad to light your way… and as such we’re offering a fabulous 10% discount across all products (except samples) for the whole month.

These super savings can be enjoyed by simply entering the discount code DET10 at checkout – so what are you waiting for? For natural kitchens and kitchen wooden worktops at bargain prices and with delivery before Christmas, you gotta dig deTerra this November!

Ta ta for now,
The deTerra Diarist
