Oh how I have missed YOU and blogging too! I know I’ve been “missing in action”. It is so unlike me not to post as I love sharing all things beauty,travel and foodie with you.
I have been traveling ✈️ for work and play. Puerto Rico, California, Palm Beach 🏝 Florida. Oh what glorious fun! When I work I always fit in time to enjoy a city and add a day or two of adventure and fun!
But with travel and a busy schedule comes a chance of getting a cold or worse. So I started to get symptoms of a cold. I went to the doctor right away to nip it! They gave me cough medicine and antibiotics. It’s wasn’t fun! But it wasn’t Covid or the flu that is going around.
After that came an unexpected late in the season hurricane in 🌴Florida! All whirling around while I was sick in bed.
I had to get back to work as soon as I could for Black Friday and Shop Small Saturday days at my beauty bungalow. So I did but then who knew? I’d be bit by three angry WASPS 🐝 three different days. My leg swelled like a killer whale. I was limping with laryngitis too as the upper respiratory infection wasn’t done with me too!
My husband loved that part! All I could do was squeak. So tough!
So you see I’ve really been through hell and back. I’m tired from all the medications and trying to work and keep it all together. I have to take care of my clients and their holiday shopping needs with my Beauty Elves at my business.
I do want to share some beauty & foodie recipes with you but I’ve got to work. I have not even begun Christmas & Chanukah shopping yet. How about you? Are you in a holidaze and going crazy right now too?
If you are… I hear you and am right there with you! Hang in there.
As you connect with friends and family this Thanksgiving…I hope you welcome them to your door with a big smile, a warm hug and a blank piece of paper and a pen. The piece of paper is for them to write down what they are thankful for. Place all of the paper pieces from the guests and family in a pretty bowl or basket.
When the time is right and things have calmed down but before the evening is over. Allow someone to read what they wrote on the piece of paper or unique shaped piece. Like the bird shaped,pumpkin shaped or a beautiful red paper heart.
I wish I thought to do this lovely idea years ago.
Makes people aware of all they have to be grateful for…especially in the midst of these pandemic times. Some may not even realize how much they really have. Abs that maybe things aren’t as bad as it seems in their lives.
Have you ever tried this idea? I like to do this with some of my favorite clients in my business too.
Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate. I want you to know I appreciate your following my beauty and lifestyle blog. I am thankful for the likes and for the kind comments. I am ever grateful that you like the words from my 🧡 heart to yours!
As beauty businesses, spas and salons we need to keep up to date with the trends. We also need to think about retailing some of them too!
Unfortunately, I see in my travels more and more non-beauty and wellness businesses carrying skincare and more!
WE are the licensed beauty professionals! Not an office supply big box store, craft or other type stores. It makes me sad when brands sell to just any type of business. We know all there is to know on makeup 💄 skincare and beyond. We know the skin in and out. We know what our clients need. We do the facials,massage and makeup services! NOT a clerk or a big box store who sells odd supplies and all things skin and beauty.
Think long and hard about your business and beauty career. Do you agree with me? Where are we headed?
To me it isn’t just about a sale. It is about building a relationship with the guests who come to us for relaxation, to feel prettier and not just about a profit!
My husband bought a good looking $299.99 office chair across from a clearance section of face masks. Feels so wrong.
While I do love ❤️ this store I wish the vendor did not sell these face masks and other skin supplies to this office supply store! I wish the store would stick to what they know best…Office and school supplies.
YOUR business needs to carry what’s hot in beauty NOT other types of stores. Our clients want to buy from us.We are the PROfessional!
