~The Not So AMAZING Days—

Honestly... It’s been a few days since my last post. Yes, we have been busy with Halloween Sales and all that goes along with that.  But, something happened. This post is so RAW — be warned!   I got discouraged. Really discouraged... Harvest is ALWAYS a hard time of year in business in a small town. People aren’t as active in town. Wives are busy preparing meals and our men are busy working in the fields. And it leads to a tough few months in business. As much as people believe when you are a business owner you are “rolling...

Let’s be real. By NO means am I perfect. I don’t always do the “right thing” I don’t always make the perfect choices. Yes I have made mistakes. Yes I have a heart. And I do regret the chances I didn’t take. Being who I am brought me to where I stand today. No it wasn’t easy and ya I fucking cried... ALOT.

Who have lived in this town for the last twenty years, maybe even longer and never noticed the building on the corner, by the only stop lights in our town with the big pink letters on the side.   I’m NOT complaining.

 I fell in love with fashion. I loved the clothing. The accessories. The shoes. I loved everything about it. But I still did not want to leave my true passion of beautifying clients. Making people feel better about themselves. Giving someone a manicure and having them confide in you while you make their hands look 10 years younger. It may sound ridiculous, but that feeling of seeing someone smile and thank you for all your hard work is very satisfying!   I always wanted to move back home. Nipawin is my town, where I was raised and will always be...
