Did I ever tell you I use to be a Santa’s Helper at the mall? I loved ❤️that job!
Counting down to Santa’s arrival and the beauty of Christmas Eve! I took care of my last client. Shipped the last holiday mail order 📦 and closed my business doors. I wish the holiday season was like before. But it is not the same for brick and mortar businesses. Although we are trying to hang in there. Again this holiday it was hard to speak to people with face masks 😷 on and not hear them clearly or most of all see their lovely smile!
I want to take this moment to say I hope you have a HAPPY Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I know many people celebrate it tonight and go to church tomorrow. I know every family has their own ritual. Blessings to you and your family and friends too!
Put something cozy on and take time and chill and sip a cup of cheer.
What are you serving Santa tonight? A delicious cookie 🍪? A cocktail 🍹? A glass of milk? Do tell!
I’m serving him a hot chocolate with a chocolate marshmallow bomb inside. And a home-made cookie.
LAST Saturday was the annual Shop Small Biz Saturday. Started by American Express to shine a light on small businesses. What a beautiful gesture and cause to start to do for small businesses.
So I hope you will think SMALL brands and go shopping 🛍 in your community wherever you live. Eat 🍱 and sip ☕️ 🍷 local too! Not just one day last Saturday but all season long. Small businesses can’t make it without you!
On behalf of myself and other business owners WE Thank You for shopping with us and spreading your shopping love. Not just on Amazon!
I love to give gifts and enjoy making my own glam boxes and fill them with a few treasures and maybe a few chocolates or home-made cookies at the bottom of the box as an unexpected surprise!

So gift yourself this holiday season and cross off all the others on your list with a few of the above gift ideas. Self-care has never been more important and we need to pamper and take care of ourselves and those we love and care about too.
There is a chill in the air and that means Thanksgiving and the other holidays are near. I know you’ve heard or read it all in the news. The supply chain, shortages and more. Don’t stress I’ve got you!
I’ve discovered some unique and pretty ideas to give from hair to toe! Not just for the ladies.
CHI haircare has some new product collections for curly hair,dehydrated hair and a NEW brush that is a 3 in 1. It is a brush that smooths your hair, is a blow dryer and a styler brush for silkier looking shiny hair. I already own the Spin & Curl styler, a hot pink blow dryer by CHI
But this brush is next level fabulous!
So lightweight and easy to use! I think it is an awesome give to give to YOURSELF or someone else.
This week on TV 📺 in my beauty & lifestyle segment I will feature this brush for my holiday gift ideas and stocking stuffers.
Stay tuned for more gift ideas that I featured on TV and have discovered I will share some cool gift ideas. Some of us may also need gifts after Chanukah or Christmas in case you forgot someone on your list. Also don’t forget those hostess gifts.
Self-care is so important now more than ever! Taking care of the hair between haircuts. Conditioning it and using the right tools is what it us all about. Make that haircut and fresh color last longer.
You don’t have to pay a fortune 💵 to look your best! OR to give as a gift.
I’ve been playing Christmas music 🎼 for two days. In the car, in my business and at home.
I’m so ready for some happy! Aren’t you?
These pandemic times are making me restless a bit . Sleepless for sure. My mind never seems to turn off. I long to make holiday cookies and put up the festive pretty lights and decor. I see in social media people I follow are already decorating and some even have their tree 🌲 up since Halloween. Stores, TV commercials and shopping shows have been showing all things Christmas and Christmas gift ideas BEFORE Halloween too.
I think this is going to be a very different kind of Christmas, Channukah and New Year’s Eve. All the things we love and people we love ❤️ have to be put on hold.
How about you? Do you feel the same way too?
I think we need a little Christmas right this very minute! And enjoy the beauty of the season and the view.
I have taught my husband all about it too and he rocks MINE every year! In fact to be totally honest I love the filled Christmas stocking more than him going crazy and stressing out to find what he thinks is the perfect gift!
But I am also all about that thoughtful token gift for the lady in your life, bestie, sister wife or moms in your life!
Here are some suggestions for a fabulous token gift and a filled stocking I know she will LOVE!
Again, put some thought into it. Give them what they can use and need!!! While I love to laugh and ENJOY fun gifts. I do know they cost $$$ and sometimes are a waste. So, think hard and shop or give wisely. I also love the beauty of handmade and home-made.
