Alright ya’ll, only a few days left of 2020 - who else is happy about this!? I think we all can say we have mixed feelings about 2020 - most of us thought it was a year of clarity, and it was. However, I don’t think anyone asked for a pandemic. Nonetheless, if nothing else, Covid has taught us, at least me - that we need to LIVE each day to the fullest. Not only that but TRY NEW THINGS - because why not!? Before the New Year, I’ve put together some ideas on how you can step into 2021 renewed and refreshed! Let me know which of these you are going to try.
Try A New Beauty Treatment: Christ Medspa
Here is a brand new beauty treatment new to the area. I met with Dr. Gina Maccarone at the Christ Medspa and she gave my the 411 about this amazing new machine/technology called The Virtue RF. This machine is comprised of microneedles that do amazing things to your skin such as removing fine lines and wrinkles. It's safe for all skin types and has no downtime. Get this procedure done before or after the New Year and get glowing tight skin for 2021. You can learn more at The Christ Medspa.
Treat Yo Self: Luxe Food
Looking for the perfect snack for NYE? Well look no further, this woman owned business, Feast Grazing Platters is exactly what you need. Now ya'll know I love me a good charcuterie board, this steps my homemade one up a million notches. They are loaded with organic and locally sourced meats, cheeses, nuts, fruit, cookies and more! They make custom grazing platters and more. What better special occasion then ringing in the New Year with something fancy :) Make sure you check out Feast Grazing Platters and get your own for NYE and beyond.
Take Care of YOU: Self Care Box Subscription
Ya'll know I'm all about SELF CARE, well let me introduce to a minority owned business called HER Brand. They offer a monthly self care subscription box that provides women with monthly self care gifts such as candles, essential oils, room sprays, bath and body products, journals, planners and other items that provide self care. Taking this box out the mailbox smelled AMAZING too :) You can sign up for a 1-month, 3-month or 6 month subscription. Such as cute and amazing subscription to take care of YOU in 2021. Get yours today!
Let it Go: Clean Out Your Wardrobe
I just recently cleaned out my closet when I moved and it was very therapeutic. Let’s not step into a New Year with a wardrobe that we haven’t worn in years - it’s time to let it go. In fact, this is the perfect time to reorganize and rethink about a different look moving forward. I understand you may not be able to get purchase a new wardrobe but you can take the clothes you no longer need/make you happy and resell them to stores such as Clothes Mentor. In fact, with the money you make selling, you could even find some great new outfits for less at Clothes Mentor as well. In the picture I’m rocking a complete sport chic look I got at the Hyde Park Clothes Mentor for less than $40! What else is great is, the clothes they don’t buy from you, they offer to donate for you - don’t bring those clothes back home!
Which lippie would you rock?
What if I told you, they are ALL minority women owned lipstick lines? Let's get all of them! These would make awesome stocking stuffers for your friends, family or just yourself. These holiday lip colors are the perfect touch this season.
What I love about all of them is they are great quality, texture and shine. These lippes range in matte's, glosses, lipstick and lipgloss. Whatever type of texture or shine you need, these amazing lip lines have them. This season let's support small owned businesses - they truly need it. In my opinion, and ya'll know I don't play about my lipsticks - all have the same quality, cute packaging like billion dollar brands do.
