A moment in time…

How time flies going through a global pandemic. First you soak in the information you are told. It is hard to even believe what is happening. The days go by very slowly and seem so surreal. Oh the newness of it all. The new normal. Our stay in place at home becomes your way of life. We have even forgotten the day of the week.

The sun ๐ŸŒž still shines,the rain โ˜”๏ธ still comes down and the birds ๐Ÿฆ are happily singing away. Spring ๐ŸŒบ has finally arrived for most of us and life keeps growing and going.

But somehow you know things are different now. While I do have my husband to keep me company in quarantine I do not have any children. But …I do have babies! They sit waiting for me in my business. My charming beauty cottage nestled on a quiet street in a neighborhood of homes and business offices.

My babies are the beauties on my shelves. Pretty things that make you look good,smell good and feel fabulous.

I have days at my studio to organize things, rearrange, answer telephone โ˜Ž๏ธ calls and emails and to stock up on our shelves,pack up mail orders ๐Ÿ“ฆ and to above all clean and disinfect even more for this COVID-19.

I worked so hard for what I have achieved and have come a long way. I am sure if you own a business or have and are devoted to a career you know what this feels like too.

I HOPE and pray my clients come back to shop and get dolled up with me. I yearn to pamper skin and paint faces. How about you? How’s your business life? Are you even able to open in your state?

But it will be different and with face coverings,masks and not my usual things. I so enjoyed serving blooming ๐Ÿตtea,gourmet coffee and something edible. Sweets or fresh fruit and veggies. But now…not sure. I loved hosting fun and yummy shopping ๐Ÿ› events. But for now none will be held. My lipstick red doors are closed. I am not officially open and am just shipping orders.

I MISS my clients faces and want to touch their hands and faces with my beauty magic wands and give them a GIGANTIC HUG.

 

But now I wait. Patiently to take the next step.
If you own a beauty business … How are you doing?

Stir crazy?

If you are feeling a little restless and your skin and pores need some love… try this.

I cut some fresh rosemary (great for your immune system and more) that I grow outside my beauty cottage door. I boiled water let it few minutes and placed that water ๐Ÿ’ฆ in a glass bowl.

Next,I added a few drops of Aura Cacia Lavender essential oilย  (So relaxing) to the bowl.

This created a Herbal Facial Steam… I placed a tea towel over my head and allowed the steamy aromatherapy and herb STEAM to reach my face. After a few minutes of this facial sauna…

My stress be gone and my pores said “Yes, Thank You!”

I follow up by rinsing my face and applying a facial toner like Rosewater on a flat cotton round. A dash of moisturizer and you’re good to go.

By the way, I love โค๏ธ sharing my beauty potions and concoctions with my clients now and again. Sharing is caring. Self care is so important and NOW even more.
