A Look Back at 2017

Since the beginning of December is creeping up on us, I thought that I would look back at my goals that I set on New Years.  If you don't follow me, I really hate the word resolutions.  I set goals every new year and that is what I work towards every day, week, and month. So here is a review of my goals and if I accomplished them. SELL 50 BOXES STEADY PER MONTH FOR BEYOUTIFUL BOX.  I am sad to say that this didn't happen but I am working to get it accomplished again for 2018.  I will hit...

Meal Prepping Success

Now I have done what I thought was meal prepping before but let me tell you something. It was so not. I would plan the meals out and buy the groceries but that was it. I wouldn't prep any of it so every night I would still need to make dinner. The other week I decided to do all of it. I had my list of meals and I was pumped. I even had the kids helping me. Richard was working for the day. I even did the click and collect grocery shopping so that I could avoid taking all...

Make Up and Me

I am not a make up person.  I NEVER have been.  Even in high school, I would rather just go to school with no make up on at all. Maybe it's the fact that I don't know anything about it.  Make up and me just don't mix.  I have never taken the time to learn techniques.  I know the basics.  I know how to put foundation on and apply mascara to my eye lashes.  That is the extent of my ability. I am okay with that.  When it comes to anything more than that, I am at a loss.  Luckily...

Christmas Box Products

If you don't have the privilege to follow me on Facebook (you should by the way), I did a live video about the products in all of the Christmas boxes.  Oh here is the link to follow me on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/deliveringselflove I love the Christmas boxes.  Last year I sold over 40 of them so this year my goal is 60 boxes!!!  It's a big goal and I am so ready to showcase the businesses that are in the boxes.

A Few Changes to BeYOUtiful Box

http://www.beyoutifulrewritten.com/store/Christmas-boxes-includes-delivery-or-shipping-p92799019I am trying to figure out the best way to do BeYOUtiful Box.  It is a work in progress and I love the feedback that I get from my customers.  I have had some amazing reviews but I think it's time that I do something that I was originally doing.  This will not impact the current orders as it will go into effect for the future orders. I will now be offering FREE delivery within Airdrie.  I was finding that my products were confusing on my website when I was offering free pick up, delivery, shipping.  So this is my...

Being an Entreprenuer is a Lot Like Being a Mom

There are moments when I feel on top of the world.  I know exactly what I am doing with my business.  The boxes go out and I feel pride because I love them.  They are perfect and more than I imagined.  Knowing exactly why I became an entrepreneur. There are moments when I scream out of frustration.  I feel as if I don't know what I am doing.  I am completely lost and oblivious as to why I became an entrepreneur.  Questioning every aspect of myself and my business. Then those moments where I am dancing around my house out...

Feeling Sexy with a Boudoir Shoot

I honestly fell in love with my first set of boudoir photos I had done back in 2014.  I told myself that I would get them as a yearly treat for myself.  A way to document my aging in a sexy and empowering way.  Well it is now 2017 and I hadn't done a shoot since and I decided it was time. The wonderful Anna Miller of Dynamic Eye Photography was open to doing the photos I had imagined in my head and I am so incredibly happy with the results. I had a vision that was out of my...

Beauty Through Hatred

Tear soaked pillow, laying there for what felt like days, dehydrated from all the tears lost.  Isolated in my 1 bedroom apartment but that was the way I wanted it.  Not talking to anyone for days at a time.  Just laying there, wondering what my life would be like if things had turned out differently. The walls were left bare and I walked around in a daze when I did get up and wander my apartment.  I was a lost soul not looking for anyone to find me.  I wanted it this way.  I couldn't be hurt.  I couldn't be...

When did this become acceptable?

I have been a mom for almost 10 years.  Wow it's scary to say that out loud.  And in those 10 years, I have learned a very important lesson..... WE ALL PARENT DIFFERENTLY. So when I get a woman who rings my doorbell telling me that I am a bad mom because I allow my children to play outside by themselves and that she is going to report me, my mama bear instincts kick in. I will admit, I lost it.  Who wouldn't though??  I told her, in a not so kind told, that she was not welcome to ring...

Discover Your Inner Goddess

The Discover Your Inner Goddess workshop that was held on September 22nd was such a perfect event!!!!  We had 17 women attend.  I am so incredibly thankful and blessed for such an awesome turn out and the friendships that were created. My co-host, Lenora and I, want to extend a huge thank you to those 17 women who showed up.  This is a workshop that we worked on for a couple months and the energy that was in that room that night was beyond comparison. The night started off by a fun little introduction game, where everyone had the chance...
