Lately I’ve been seeing and hearing women say “I’m fat and sassy since Covid and not doing a thing.”
“Wearing yoga pants and don’t care to get dressed up anymore!”
“Not wearing lipstick, not wearing foundation and just gave it up!”
Some just say they are hiding behind a face mask 😷 saving money 💰 and proudly announced to me they’ve even stopped wearing 💄 lipstick!
These words just about KILL ME! Don’t stop wearing lipstick! Gloss or lip balm!
I know we’ve been on such a roller coaster in life since 2020 with Covid’s arrival. Every day and month unfolds a new adventure and not always a good one. A “shit show” in fact. Our lives have not been healthy and easy. But I think that’s the beauty of a lipstick, glowing skin,wearing fragrance, a pretty outfit and self-care!
I think we should ALL care. Get dolled up for work or play. Feel good about ourselves, love ourselves more. Take better care of our health. Enjoy life to its fullest.
The universe 🌎 needs you!!!
And it needs me too. Don’t give up. Put your best face and body forward. YOU deserve it.
Celebrating all you fabulous & fierce women today.
I salute the women of Ukraine too! They had to leave EVERYTHING!
! I can’t even stand the thought of not taking my lipsticks with me for the day!
How did they choose? What did they choose in those backpacks? Or roller luggage? Or their children’s backpacks?
Also love ❤️ and bless the women of Poland 🇵🇱 who thought to leave baby carriages and strollers for the mommy’s of Ukraine arriving to Poland at the train station on their journey with their babies or little children.
What an amazing beautiful gesture!!! I cried when I saw that on the news and in social media.
We have much to learn from these women in peril and perhaps hopeless.
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 ☔️ 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 📦 and to above all clean and disinfect even more for this COVID-19.
It is definitely a NEW world and is a different normal right now. In this moment and time we are truly all one!
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 🛍 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?
