Having quickly become a staple in beauty bags across the nation, it’s no surprise that Cocoa Brown’s product range is continuing to expand.

Following the launch of The Goddess Collection in Dundrum TC this week, the Dublin based tanning company has announced that it is spreading its roots across the Atlantic by opening its first New York office.

In a post which appeared on Instagram yesterday, brand founder Marissa Carter wrote: “By the end of next week we’ll have our US company incorporated!  The #CocoaBrown #NewYork office will open January 2017.”

Speaking about the venture to Goss.ie, the beauty entrepreneur explained that a Manhattan base for Cocoa Brown “makes sense” because “New York is the hotspot for global PR and marketing activities”.

We wish Cocoa Brown furthered success in the US.




Last week we told you about Matt Carpenter, the brainchild behind start-up company Ship Your Enemies Glitter.

The 22-year-old Australian became inundated with orders when he launched a website which promised to send your chosen enemy "so much glitter in an envelope that they’ll be finding that sh** everywhere for weeks," for the low low price of just AUD$9.99 (€7.09).

The world pretty much unanimously agreed that Matt's idea was AMAZING, but the poor lad couldn't hack the pressure and decided to sell the company after just four days.

It seems his gamble was a good one, as the site has just been bought anonymously for a cool $85,000 (€74,500) on domain-selling site Flippa.

Since the site was launched 10 days ago, it's had 2.5 million visitors, has been mentioned on social media almost half a million times and has gotten worldwide publicity on TV and radio, too.

Not bad for a start-up that's less than a fortnight old!
