Getting ready for …Valentineโ€™s Day

My favorite time of year!

I have a whole prop house full of โค๏ธ hearts and kisses ๐Ÿ’‹all ready for the season of love!

Time to decorate if you haven’t already begun in your home, office,spa or salon.

Got left over red ribbon? Curling ribbon? Red wrapping paper or other festive things from the Christmas holidays?

Bring them out and save some money ๐Ÿ’ต by using up the rest of the trimmings or anything red decor. (Pink or metallics work well too)

Barter with a business or client or family member who bakes and serve some yummy cupcakes, pie, cakes or even chocolates.

I also like to do a chocolate love โค๏ธ tree. I bought a cone shaped styrofoam piece from Michaels and covered it with parchment paper. I bought a terracotta flower pot and filled it with foam and covered it in faux grass. Looks like a ๐ŸŒฑ and a tree. Got it?

Next I take chocolates from a box of nice chocolates. Stick a tooth pick into a chocolate and pop it in the cone tree.

I fill the entire space of that cone tree with chocolates. Over the Valentine season we put them out the week of and serve them and a cup of decadent coffee. After 5:00 or on a Saturday we offer Champagne ๐Ÿพ spritzers. Or serve them straight up.

We decorate the table with confetti’s, shimmering glitter or conversation hearts. Cheap and easy!

We prepare 3 bodacious giveaways!

And do a drawing on Valentine’s โค๏ธ Day! Clients love it. We also do a drawing for Galentine’s Day.

We also make our lipsticks ๐Ÿ’„and lip treatment ๐Ÿ’‹products or services on special. Who doesn’t love a SALE?

And tis’ the season for KISSING? ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹ Right?

Celebrate the beauty of Chinese New Year!

In your home or in your business you can celebrate the Lunar New Year too. It starts now and is a 15 day celebration. As I mentioned before I am an all American girl who just happens to be Polish and Chinese. What fun! I eat Polish  kielbasa sausage and devour juicy dumplings too! I love celebrating Chinese New Year in NYC’s Chinatown. Have you ever been? The lion dance and all the other rituals and food are wonderful. The sweet treats are fabulous too.

You can bring a piece of the Asian pie so to speak by bringing in some Asian lanterns. Red is a powerful color and brings in good luck. Gold symbolizies money and and of course jade is good health and good luck. Decorate your business with any of these hues and bring in some exotic decor too.

We serve hot tea and have customized fortune cookies with our own messages inside. Or you can buy them by the box at Asian grocery stores.

Do a promotion with any Asian inspired or ingredients skin care and or body or fragrance.It is nice to have an ethnic twist. Give your clients a discount to get them to explore and shop. Your clients will notice and your cash register will ring more too.

I recently learned that not all Asians celebrate the lunar new year. In China it is not only a national holiday for days… Chinese New year is celebrated for 15 glorious days. Vietnamese have their own kind fun and festivals. S Koreans have a 3 day celebration. Lastly the Japanese revere January 1st as a very special day.

So bring it… in your business this year. You still have time to join in on the festive fun.

Gong Hei Fat Choy is Cantonese for Happy New Year…it translates into “Wishing you great happiness and prosperity.”

 

 

 

Welcoming in the first day of fall!

How was your day?

Fall gave us a cooler morning here in sunny Florida ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒž and I made a batch of New Orleans style coffee.โ˜•๏ธ enjoyed fresh fruit,and a piece of something naughty!

Shipped mail orders and worked on a mail out layout for our VIP clients! Of course all my clients are VIP’s to us.

Spent some time reflecting on all that will be happening this fall thru December. Grateful for all the opportunities and happy to be alive.

Returned emails, phone calls and got ready for TV. I will share more on that next post. Today is my day off! ๐Ÿ˜œ As you can see a business owners work is never really done. But that’s why we do it. We love โค๏ธ what we do!

I hope you had an awesome day! Chat with me.

Pumpkin Pretty D.I.Y.

An you feel the almost arrival of fall?

My husband says “I kiss better than I cook” ๐Ÿ˜ But I so enjoy entertaining,cooking and makeup! I also love this time of year and all the decor and recipes to celebrate fall.

Today I went to the store and discovered a potpourri of pumpkins ๐ŸŽƒ and more.

So to celebrate ๐ŸŽŠ this time of year here is a recipe to do for YOU and or on your clients too! You’ll be tempted to eat it but don’t. The room will smell divine while and after making this facial treat.

Pretty Pumpkin Pie ๐ŸŽƒ facial mask

What you will need:

1 can of pumpkin pie filling

1 teaspoon of honey

1 sprinkle of nutmeg

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Stir in all of the above in a bowl. What you will have is a creamy and dreamy gentle natural exfoliation mask. No harsh chemicals. I find even my clients with sensitive skin love to use this and have no issues.

You may use fresh pumpkin but I love using the can in a pinch!

*But please do a patch test on the inside of your arm near your wrist or a section of your face to see if you have a slight reaction. If you have allergies to these ingredients don’t use this D.I.Y.

I like to leave this on at least 10 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water and a washcloth. Afterwards use your facial toner and moisturizer.

Place remains in a small jam or condiments jar you recycled and you can use it again in a few days.

Sip a cold glass of fresh apple ๐ŸŽ cider and you’ll make the day even more delicious.

Enjoy!
