So here we are, in the middle of an epidemic I never thought I'd see. And of course it would take place once I opened a small business. I ran everything online and recently rented a cute little place in Newport Beach on a busy street off of 17th Street and PCH.
I work hard, I have 2 children and just like everyone else, things are uncertain right now. I have no will to stop what I'm doing because it brings me joy and I need to continue for myself mentally and spiritually. I will do just as everyone else and cut my costs to be below cost, because I need to create and move products.
Right now if you are a grocery store you're fine. If you are a skincare line also inside the store you are fine. Small businesses are the ones who aren't going to make it and we are the ones who need to most of all. I mean, come on, look at what these little guys like myself offer.
NoSH BoDY uses the BEST ingredients, they are paraben free, non-toxic, never harmful, always fresh, organic and mostly vegan as well, earth friendly, safe for children, excellent for delicate and sensitive skin, tested, have results and is guaranteed. The products speak for themselves and so do the ratings on Google, YELP, Facebook and my Intagram followers and clients include celebrities and are often featured on their IG Stories. I also have been written up and featured in The Skinny Confidential Blog and won awards and been the featured business for Tailor Brands.
I have worked in skincare and cosmetics for many years prior to NoSH BoDY and have a passion for creating products that are interesting and unique to my brand. I literally make Food For the Skin, especially since it is the largest organ.
I am Beettan Certified and offer SugarBeet Spray Tanning at my studio or I do mobile pop-ups in home or anywhere you'd like to have an event. Bachelorette parties are the BEST! This tan goes on dry, doesn't use bronzers so you can wear white after you spray, uses your own natural color to develop into your own golden glow. So it is NOT a FAKE TAN, it is real. The Sugar in the Beets created the DHA and your own natural epidermis to create your personal tan. You should try it sometime of course onece things go back to normal. In the mean time there is also, a self tanner that is buildable and goes on clear, it fool proof and smells great too just like the spray.
As far as right now and the world and COVID-19 I feel it is God calling out to us all. He is asking us all to STOP! Life needed to come to a halt, we were all running the rat race and living from one stressful moment to the next. Money may be the uncertainty right now but what does our soul need. We need to reconnect with family, spend more time at home with our loved ones, take a step back from the world and go into the darkness to once again see the light. Next time maybe we will see, we will know and we will understand that we need to balance things better. Also, love thy neighbor, not hoard and steal toilet paper from others or bottled water. I'm not here to judge but honestly people, your soul can live with that? Let's be kind, giving and show peace and happiness. Be thankful and grateful for each day.
Again, so online, support small businesses that are struggling. If you need a product, try looking online at the bottom of the search for a local company and see what they offer. I have my customers purchasing online and shipping or purchase and do porch pick up if needed.
Let's give everyone a change to make it out of this and still be ok.
Sending all of your family, friends, co-workers etc a healthy quarantine time and we will get through this....UNITED!
Grateful and thankful,
Mother of two young children, housewife in the OC, rewriting how we view skincare for ourselves and our children
