Having your own skincare line is wonderful. Being ahead of the trend, constant stock of your favorite items, and the joy of creating products that can increase ones self esteem and overall quality of life brings a sense of fulfillment that you would not believe.
Over the years, I had to get to a point where I realized it was okay to still love some of the products that originally caught my eye as a 14 year old.. the products within the folded over Harpers Bazaar pages, the alluring containers that they were in, and the overall way that each product made me feel.
For the last 10 years, I've made a stop to Sephora the month of my birthday to pick-up my awesome little gift, which this year is the Marc Jacobs lip and eyeliner set. In this regard, some things never change.
The bag sits around the loft for days, so that I can admire it from time to time, and I relive the repeated emotion of being thrilled that inside of that bag a cute, fun, and girly item exists for my sheer delight and excitement.
While waiting in line to pick up my gift, I could not resist purchasing the Atelier Cologne Collection, pictured above. Nowadays, its not the 14 year old girl with Naturistics on her lips and Bonnie Bell gently scented on her skin, now its the woman that just finished blending together a nail humectant for her line, that happily enjoys the best of both worlds.
The ultimate full circle moment.
