The life of an entrepreneur requires commitment, structure, attention, organization, and heart.
Heart is what keeps you going in the middle of a large purchase order, en route to a potential supplier, and when fulfilling orders for dedicated customers. Be it first time buyers, or loyal repeat customers, love goes into each and every product.
With the successful launch of CocoaVin, a sheer, cocoa rich lip creme for 303 Face | Body, I was elated to receive quite a few new customers, as well as a number of loyal, repeat customers, which truly brings a smile to my face.
The main goal of 303 Face | Body is to create natural skincare products that are free of ingredients that are harmful to skin, and full of skin nourishing oils, butters, and herbs. When I'm able to recommend (and or customize) a specific item to meet the needs of customers, I'm reminded of how much of a gift it is to be in the business of helping others feel and look their best.
What's that I see? Leaves changing. Fall is literally around the corner.
This summer has been an absolute whirlwind. I'd love to have a seat and take a moment to look at all that has been going on my darn self! Hah! Anywho, it has been a very fun summer.
My husband spent most of the summer in the play, Annie. I relied heavily on updating my social media during this time, as that is pretty much all that I had time for while assisting him with what he needed for the play.
Did an interview for 303 Face | Body in Mid August:
The company listing for 303 Face | Body was listed in the annual skincare guide issue of Organic Spa Magazine.
Launched the campaign for 303 Face | Body World, which introduces 303 Face | Body to different countries around the world, (this has been a lot of fun!)
Currently getting the Rose Tonic Facial Astringent ready for its debut in Australia's Good Green Box.. I know, pretty cool!
In closing, you can see that I was absolutely not kidding when I say things have been b...
Such an extreme, snow filled winter.. (this is sarcasm.) However, after a couple of months in boots, layered clothing and beanies, I'm ready for stepping out of the house in a pair of gladiator sandals and a sundress.
Spring serves as a natural stimulant for me. Beginning the morning with the sweet harmony of birds, gentle daylight caressing your eyelids, bringing you to your feet, heading out for an early walk before 6a.
I'm uncertain if it is because of the requirements of my company, or if its simply my life's natural path, but with each passing day, my life is gradually becoming blanketed in aromatherapy.. meditation.. minimalism.. peace.
With 303 Face | Body, I'm constantly learning about natural healing butters and herbs for the products, and the study of this is starting to marry with my love of gemstones, caring for various plants, having a living space filled with healthy aromatic blends, healing sounds (flute, water, birds) being played throughout the lo...
T'is the season to enjoy holiday nail color, fa la la la la.. or maybe not.
All of the products made by 303 Face | Body contain fresh butters, oils, and herbs, promoting the healthiest and purest skin, hair and nails.
I am not only a 303 Face | Body client, I'm also the Founder. I gain nothing by trying to make up how great the product is, I simply use the products daily, reflecting the benefits in my presentation of make up free skin.......
and polish free nails.
The Lavandula Nail Humectant is promoted as being fresh and natural, creating a beautiful, healthy nail bed, as well as healthy cuticles. Not only is this a factoid, but it is so accurate that I've been trying to wear a few fun nail polish colors for the holidays, but the humectant works SO well, that my polish literally lasts about a day and a half, (no matter the brand, top coat, base coat, etc) and then peels off in one piece.
I kid you not.
So, this is indeed a first world problem, but imagine having a product that works...
Hot Stone Massage is a massage technique that uses heated stones to relax and massage sore muscles. The stones can be used for their heat alone, or as massage tools used in combination with essential oils used in aromatherapy.

"bundles of dried herbs"
For five years, I've integrated the use of various herbs into 303 Face | Body Bath Teas, foot soaks, and soaps. Within the last year, custom made herbal tea blends have been added to the House of 303, and although a delicious and wonderful addition, my herbs were beginning to overwhelm the storage area dedicated to them, and a need for neat and proper storage was in 911 mode! :)

Proper cute n' old fashioned labeling system.
Bought these darling mini jars at my favorite craft store.
Found the perfect cart for storing all of the herbal contents also. Just the right size, does not take up much space in the loft.
At last! I'm storing my ever-growing stock of herbs in an easy to reach area, and they're appealing to the eye in their cur...
With overnight temps sneaking down into the forties a few nights ago, I was once again reminded that fall is right around the corner, and my excitement for introducing my newest tea blend for the fall heightened.
