by Mark Walton This Patrick’s Day we sent a very special VOYA gift set to President of the USA’s First Lady, Michelle Obama on behalf of the Emerald Isle. Local T.D Tony Mc Loughlin presented the gift to An Taoiseach Enda Kenny in the week prior to the annual St. Patrick Day celebratory reception, which takes place in The White House each year. During the reception, the President and Taoiseach participated in the annual Shamrock ceremony, which symbolizes the historic relationship between Ireland and the USA. This is the second year that VOYA had the privilege of gifting the First Lady for St. Patrick’s Day. Michelle Obama is renowned for making good decisions, graduating from Harvard Law, marrying a President to be, not to mention her appropriate and polished style. Therefore, VOYA strove to gift her with only the very best in organic skincare! The First Lady’s bespoke gift contained a luxury selection of the VOYA’s award-winning body range with newly designed packaging. The new design has developed in line with VOYA’s 2015 branding evolution, which has just launched its first phase.
