New MOVE Maven Boxes are available!

Hello dear one!

I hope you are very well and that you haven't missed me too much :-D. In terms of recovery, I'm feeling so much better these days finally! For the most part, I can say that most days now, I'm feeling all the way healed, which is a fantastic feeling :). 

So if you've been hanging out with me in our new Facebook Group, then you already know about the plan to start providing MOVE Maven special product boxes. I hope you are as excited about this as I am!

This is something I've wanted to do for years and just have let all types of worries and concerns stop me. But no more, lol! I'm going to let go of perfection and start somewhere right? (Isn't that the old saying!). What the boxes will contain each time is a specially curated combination of products around a certain theme and with certain benefits. I'll only be making 10 to 20 of each box offering at a time and once they are all spoken for, that will be it. Some of the products might be available after but more than likely a lot of them will only be one time gifts :). 

You may or may not know that in addition to making makeup, I've made natural, nourishing skincare and body care products for years - longer than I've made makeup even :-). So these boxes will include not just makeup items, but also skincare and body care, and even items specifically designed to motivate and inspire you. Behind all of this is my soul desire to motivate and inspire you to know your own beauty and to be so very present in your own life. And so there will always be a hint of that in everything I offer to you :).  

I've been doing a lot of thinking about what to include in this first MOVE maven box and I've finally decided - woohoo! I'll admit, at first I had plans to include 6 different items! However, when I started to price things out and think about making it an easy yes for you, I realized that a $45 box would be a lot harder to say yes to than a $20 box :).

So I've pared it down so that it can be a $20 box with a LOT of value still. This is what you are going to get :): 

****MOVE MidSummer's Dream Box - $20 ($32 value)****
Sun Oil $10
Stay Cool Lipgloss (gold shimmer w/ peppermint flavor)
Manifest eyeshadow Trio: Intend (golden highlight), Action (matte brown), emPower (matte yellow)

This box will be ready to ship out on August 22nd. I am so excited about offering this because it combines so many of my interests into one! I am making 20 of these boxes so if you know you would like one, please go ahead and reserve it by purchasing it now instead of waiting! 

I can't wait to get it to you! 


P.S. Join us in our Facebook Group if you haven't already! This week, I'm going to be telling you more the products in the box and why I chose them. Don't miss out

MOVE Makeup will be on soon!

It’s been a wonderfully exciting time here in MOVE Makeup land! My latest bit of great news is that very soon, MOVE Makeup will be available on! This is a really wonderful thing for many reasons. One of the best reasons is that gazillions of people will learn about MOVE Makeup in a much shorter amount of time than I alone could have reached them.

I’m ecstatic about that. When you are a small boutique mostly handling all of the moving pieces yourself, any help you can get to spread the word, you take right? And honestly, after attending the buyer meeting and Open Summit in Bentonville, AR, I have to say, I am overjoyed that this help is coming from Walmart.

To say that I was impressed with their commitment to small businesses is an understatement. I know that the point of the Summit was to help us understand why partnering with Walmart would be such a great venture, but even knowing that everything would be focused on that, I was happily moved by the passion, authenticity, and sincerity that every speaker led with. It felt really good to realize how much Walmart is working to do be a positive force in this world and the US especially.

Getting some big screen time!

You know how important ethical and social consciousness and responsibility is to me and I can say that I felt really good leaving that Summit about the company that Walmart really is. And no, I didn’t get paid to say any of this lol! It just felt really good being there.

So I’m now working through the process of getting MOVE ready to show up on The beautiful thing is that it’s right in alignment with what I had planned already. I know you want more videos and they are coming. I know you want to see more how tos and everyday I’m releasing more of my perfectionistic tendencies, leaning into the fun of it, and getting plans in place to get them to you!

I’m redesigning the product listings so that it’s easier to find what you need and to figure out what works best for you. I’m figuring out what changes I need to make to the website, what I can do myself, and what I need to hire out to get done and figuring out the budget of it all. It’s work but it’s work I am happy to do.

I’m looking forward to getting your feedback on things as they develop!

In the meantime, if you haven’t received your 10% off coupon for your first order, sign up for it here.

And also, I invite you to join the MOVE Mavens Beauty Group, a growing community of MOVE mavens sharing looks, tips, and technique! I post group only discounts there most Saturdays also, so you definitely don’t want to miss out!

Until next time!

For PROM Moms and PROM Goers! Please help me spread the word and share and invite! Thank you!

When we think of Prom we think of the dress, the shoes, the makeup, the boutineer, and the promise of a night to remember!

But we rarely think about things to do *leading up* to prom to make sure we feel and look our absolute best!

In this workshop, we are going to focus on one of those things you can do! That's developing an easy, EFFECTIVE skincare regimen to follow to get blemish free, glowing, and radiant skin - and that's *before* you apply your makeup!

Remember that makeup looks even better on healthy, clear skin. This workshop will show you how to get it ;-).

We will cover:

**The 5 essential steps to creating healthy, blemish free skin

**Why your skincare products aren't working like they promised

**How to make your own skincare products that are cheaper and work tons better

The awesome thing about this workshop is that you can join us from the comfort of your own home - we are going to be on Google Hangout!

Registration is just $12 and with your registration you'll receive a $15 special coupon code to use towards your next order of MOVE Makeup. Because after you get your skin glowing, you won't want to put heavy, toxic ridden makeup on and cause it to break out all over again right?! Plus MOVE is sweatproof so PERFECT for prom night!
