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.
At the House of 303, my house cup always happily runneth over with beauty products, photographs, books, projects, herbs, recipes, H.. I.. J.. K.. L.. M.. N.. O.. P. You catch my drift.
After deciding on all of the photographs for Blogger Mon Cherie's #MoreThanMagic book, I wanted to create another coffee table book, as I am completely obsessed with them, and would love to share the organic skincare tips for 303 Face | Body, recipes , as well as HELLO! My obsession with interior decorating.
My first love, photography, will come into play as creating the pages for the guide will be a large part of the process.
The 303 Home | Loft | Wellness Coffee Table Guide will make its debut during the 2017 holiday season.

In mid- September, I received a call about 303 Face | Body going through the process of putting together a media campaign with Kevin Harrington of Shark Tank and As Seen on T.V fame.
I currently have so many campaigns and collaborations happening that I had to postpone. After trying to figure out if I could fit it in about 100,000 times, I had to ultimately wait.
Now, all of this is absolutely exhilarating.. but one of the most amazing moments in all of this is that 303 Face | Body is in high demand by this staff.. which is one of the greatest compliments for the brand that I could possibly receive.
For years now, I've believed in what I make, comfortably and passionately promoting and selling each item. What a beautiful confirmation that hard work and dedication, without a shadow of a doubt, pays off.

Living in the heart of the city, I developed a fondness for grocery delivery. Don't drive but want to get eight honeydew melons for a fruit salad?
Hello! Grocery delivery.
This week I wanted a couple of specialty items and opted to physically go to the store. (Lol) Anyhow, this evening I made a quick, easy, and delicious meal, Italian Sausage w/ Wheat Pasta & Mozzarella Sauce.
What you'll need:
Wheat Pasta (a little less than half of the package for two people.)
1 lb Italian sausage.
This go 'round, I did not make the sauce from scratch, so, helloo.. I used Ragu, hah!
Two cups, sliced mushrooms.
Two cups, green onion (chopped).
1tsp olive oil.
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese.
1/cup shredded sharp cheddar.
4 tsp coarse ground black pepper.
Boil 1/2 pot hot water (with a pinch of salt) for pasta, and warm skillet on medium low with one tsp of olive oil. Once water starts boiling, add pasta and simmer on medium setting. Once olive oil is hot, add Italian sausage to skillet, cooking on medium lo...
It's best to never cry over spilled milk, because it may just be in your favor.
Last week I was opening up the closet door in a room that has been turned into our walk-in closet. Now, above each closet door there is a hanging display of all of our hats. There (was) also a shelf that I sheepishly put up (wasn't sure it'd stay in place) in January, below the hats, holding our watches and small bottle fragrances.
It'd been adhering to the wall nicely for months with no issue, but this particular day, I opened the closet door, a hat popped off its display bracket, knocked over not only a watch or two, but the whole shelf came crashing down. Whomp. Whomp.
Luckily, all perfume bottles were intact. There's a small puncture in one of my watches, yet nothing so bad that I'd need to stop wearing it. The shelf was also intact, but I knew I hadn't any interest in attempting to adhere it to the wall again, so hello!
When I was 13, my mother started getting regular subscriptions of Seventeen Magazine for me. Now what that did was turn a little girl that was not so ready to face her teenage years into a young lady that was basically OBSESSED with darling/cute/fun beauty products. Naturistics, Bonnie Bell, Hard Candy, Revlon Toast of New York lipstick, Navy, Sand and Sable, I could go on forever, but I will not.
I will, however, tell you what was starting to develop here.
Without this teenage girl even knowing, she was starting to develop the knowledge of what would one day become her passion, her career, her company. All she knew at that time was how great it felt to thumb through the pages, admiring various products.. the creative ways that each item would be photographed, folding over pages that she wanted to revisit.
Unconsciously doing her research.
Until my move from L.A to Colorado a few years ago, I still had my first issue of Seventeen and my first Harpers...
... and taking care of of our external body, our temple, is equally important.
Self care consists of a myriad of different things, and often times we find ourselves neglecting our temple. "Oh I've got to plan a spa weekend one of these days." Well putting that spa weekend off is not taking care of the current wear and tear that you're experiencing. Taking a spa moment for yourself is easier than you think, and you can experience that luxurious feeling at home.
Start with AloeSpea Body Wrap, by 303 Face | Body, which is currently featured in the Wellness edition of Organic Spa Magazine. This aloe and spearmint based wrap will both moisturize and enlighten your senses. Apply liberally to body (for external use only.) Leave on for 30 minutes, you'll fall in love with the amazing cooling sensation, while your skin will begin to feel wonderfully smooth and taut. Rinse away in bath (or shower.)
After rinsing off the AloeSpea wrap, exfoliate and cleanse with the Hibiscus Bath Bar by...
Each Wednesday, Marci Lundy, owner of 303 Face | Body will discuss the importance of maintaining a lifestyle of mental and physical serenity .
Our mental well being can be maintained by the simple act of appreciating that which is around us. The natural art that we see each day which is free for all, the Earth. Skies, clouds, grass, sun, flowers, rock formations, birds.. really, the list is endless.
In this day and age where persons seem to gloat on how much sleep they did not receive, or how full their life is, or how much coffee it takes to function each day.. How about starting the day awakening naturally, because we went to bed early enough and got ENOUGH rest. What if there was no need to awaken to the rude buzz (beep, song, or otherwise) of an alarm because when you've received enough rest, you naturally awaken. Get to bed at a sensible time. Awaken naturally. This will be a process for many of those that are not used to it. You'll need to ease into this. Try going...
