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.
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.

About three years ago, I made a decision to create a skincare product that had the purpose of offering a heated stone therapy that people could enjoy in their home, or a weekend getaway.. When getting to the spa w...
Earlier this week, I spoke about finding cherries at the Union Station Farmers Market, and of course there are numerous recipes that you can make with cherries. Here's a fun, no mess, low fuss way to make spa water with the naturally sweet treat.
I love this particular ice tray, extra large, giving you more area for more fruit for the cubes. This ice tray by Tovolo is six cube, and extremely flexible. I did two cherry cubes, two spearmint cubes, and two/spearmint cherry cubes.
Naturally you don't have to wait very long for everything to become frozen, I made up the cubes before bedtime and deposited them into my favorite pitcher first thing this morning.
As you can see, I've clearly been helping myself:) The cubes have stayed firm for an hour and a half, and counting.
Although these are perfection for spa water, you can also create lemon/limeade cubes, pineapple juice cubes.. the list goes on.
a plant that grows on another plant but is not parasitic, such as the numerous ferns, bromeliads, air plants, and orchids growing on tree trunks in tropical rain forests.
A love that is free of worry, excessive maintenance, and brings ongoing delight and beauty.
I'm talking about my love affair with epiphytes, or air plants.
For the last ten years, this has been my plant of choice. Painfully easy to maintain, this plant grows above ground, and thrives via rain, dust, or an occasional spritz in your loft or home space.. trust me, I know.
I also occasionally soak the little darlings in a tepid sink bath. If you're going to water them this way, soak them from 15 to 30 minutes, drying them upside down.
Fun Fact: Orchids are also in the family of epiphytes.
If you've got a busy life, have not had great success in maintaining houseplants, want to add oxygen to your living space with plants, or just find air plants awesome... get you some!
