Do you know what day it is?

It is Shop Small Saturday.

Think big and shop small!

This movement was started by American Express and to shine a light and spread some LOVE to all small businesses in our communities where we live and while we travel for the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.

IF you never heard of it…now you have. AND if you own a business it is not too late to get it together and do something and celebrate with US (other business owners) too! My glam team of elves have dressed our shelves and it is going to be an awesome day. I just feel it.

JUST have fun,browse,shop and enjoy!

Many stores will have specials and gifts galore. FEEL GOOD to shop small businesses too. And while you are at it. Why not STAND TALL and Eat Small,Sip Small think big by shopping small in your community. Today is the day!

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 🌞 still shines,the rain β˜”οΈ still comes down and the birds 🐦 are happily singing away. Spring 🌺 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 ☎️ calls and emails and to stock up on our shelves,pack up mail orders πŸ“¦ 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 🍡tea,gourmet coffee and something edible. Sweets or fresh fruit and veggies. But now…not sure. I loved hosting fun and yummy shopping πŸ› 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?
