Getting ready for …Valentine’s Day

My favorite time of year!

I have a whole prop house full of ❤️ hearts and kisses 💋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 💵 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 ❤️ 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 🌱 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 🍾 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 ❤️ Day! Clients love it. We also do a drawing for Galentine’s Day.

We also make our lipsticks 💄and lip treatment 💋products or services on special. Who doesn’t love a SALE?

And tis’ the season for KISSING? 💋💋💋 Right?

Did you know?

It is breast cancer awareness month and I have some information to share with you. Not only do men get breast cancer too. But there is another type of breast cancer you can get too!
Do you remember when you had flawless baby skin? Isn’t this baby girl a doll? Do you remember how pretty your skin was too?
No marks, no spots no splotches?? Oh how I know many of you long for those days and that baby soft skin!

This used to be ME (minus THE tattoo) sunbathing 😎 in the summers in N.Y.C. Then I moved to Florida and sunbathed a bit more too.

UNTIL I got smarter. Sun smart to be exact.

I got squamous cell carcinoma and it wasn’t very beautiful or golden. I found a little brown raised spot ON my breast not in my breast. The Dr told me it isn’t very common. But common or rare I needed it gone.

I was terrified. Thousands of dollars $$$ in Drs. visits and a special surgery called Mohs to remove it at Mayo Clinic. It was a day I decided to never sunbathe again.
