The past few years have been interesting, to say the least, but we feel it's important to celebrate victories - both big and small and we hope you do, too.
Sometimes victories are just waking up on time in the morning, right?
We enjoyed the better part of 2015-2019 being able to see many of you in person at our brick store at the Domain in Austin, TX.
Then Covid happened. And our lives changed, much like yours.
Our business model was also flipped on its head as we started to focus more on serving you online.
But this past year has been like no other — by January of 2020, I was knee deep into making beauty videos for you without any certainty if I would reach and serve you.
In March, our first TikTok video went viral (for our small business) and this surprisingly broadened our reach!
To support you more, we went “live” on Tik Tok almost every day for about 6 months. Maybe you were there with me, too (my JQ OG's - you know who you are)! This allowed me to get to know you on a deeper level and understand how to serve you better.
As the year progressed, so did our business and work requests, and although I was using my Christmas cup in December on a regular basis, I was so busy that I wasn’t feeling the "spirt of Christmas," yet - my favorite time of the year!!
Then, the spirit of Christmas hit me over the head when my third niece was born and my heart immediately exploded, reminding me that the joyous spirit of Christmas lives within us all year round.
In case you’re too busy or tired and need to hear it, too, cheers to you and all you've accomplished like a rockstar during these challenging last couple of years when no one was looking.
Everyday is a gift, whether it's a holiday or not, but this time of year is a good reminder to keep spreading the love around -- especially to those who need it.
For me, beauty is more than about “applying makeup," it’s about the way it makes you feel when you do.
Regardless of what stage you are on your journey, I’m delighted and honored to be a part of it.
Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed holiday season and happy new year!
With love & appreciation,
