Shop small this Christmas

Shop small this Christmas and make it the best Christmas ever. 2020 has been hard on a lot of people, and as a small business owner I can assure you that when you book a session with me I do an actual happy dance! So in the spirt of Christmas I decided to pull a few of my favourite small business details together to share with you! I would love to know your thoughts!

Her recommendation for a top gift this season is Ultimate Renewal Bath Set. Upgrade me-time with this skin-softening trio, designed to create a luxurious at-home spa moment to reveal hydrated, healthier-looking skin and boost peace of mind. It includes everything needed to unwind before, during, and after bathing. 

And her Budget Friendly Top Gift: Polish and Protect Lip Duo- Share some lip love with this safer lip duo that exfoliates and conditions for a smooth pout. Lip Polish gently buffs and softens, while Better Balm protects and visibly smooths. With all the extra time in masks, we need the lip love this season.
