I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, and that you were able to have some time off to spend as you see fit Since Week Three’s update was a bit lengthy, and last week was somewhat of a shorter holiday week, this update is going to be brief.
Many of you have taken the suggestions for forum posts to heart, and wow, has the caliber of posts improved!
I know it takes some effort to put in the work required to write a quality post… preferably one with a picture, perhaps a link, and a description which allows another community member take action or derive real value from your post. I’d like to thank @MissSabrina1986 for her excellent contributions: she routinely takes the time to include photos in her replies, and it’s just so helpful (and visually appealing) to see images for products when scrolling through the threads. I might not always know a name, but I’ll remember the bottle. Thank you for helping to up our posting game! I’d also like to recognize @Emgie, but for another reason. Not only is she an active contributor to the group, she really makes an effort to reply to other peoples posts and encourage a conversation. Thanks for helping to bring a human element to our online community, by taking the conversation one step further!
Haven’t posted a topic yet? Don’t be shy! I encourage you to reach out in the coming weeks to post a question or discussion idea in the Beauty Talk forum. Don’t worry if your topic doesn’t fit perfectly into the “beauty box”, as the forum and community grow, we’ll create more organization, just keep it oriented around living a natural lifestyle (health, fitness, yoga/meditation, wellness, etc.)I’m learning so much from all of you, and I truly enjoy coming here to catch up on all the news and trends.
Whether you’ve got a different opinion or experience, or even agree, it’s so helpful to the discussion to discover new products and methods. It’s important you all know how valuable and unique each of your contributions are here, and I’m grateful for all of you.
Daily Light Moisturizer
It looks like the Body Lotion was the winner. If you’re delivery vehicle wasn’t selected, don’t worry, we’ll end up creating the Body Milk and Dry Oil Spray at some point. The product matrix is enormous, it’s simply a matter of prioritization. Thank you for voting! Look for more educational content to come out this week as we take a closer look at some of the more common ingredients (which you’ll help us choose) found in natural moisturizing lotions, and how moisturizers work in general.
As we wrap up this Memorial day weekend of 2018, I’d like to pay homage to Gratitude. I’ve been mindfully trying to bring thanks and appreciation for the things, people, and experiences in my life for a little over 2 years now, and it’s made a quantifiable impact on my happiness. My sister in law bought me a gratitude candle for my birthday, which we light a few times per month when we want to really focus on recognizing something special in our lives - I especially like to do this when we have company over, to honor their connection to us, but it could be for anything - it could be as simple as recognizing your partner did the dishes!As you go about your week, I challenge you to notice something small that you appreciate. Recognize it. If you choose to verbalize it because it’s something another person did, more power to you. See how it makes you feel.
Thank you for sharing a part of your week with me,
