The festive season is upon us. Today our friends on the other side of the big pond are celebrating. I'd like to wish everyone across the world, expats, friends and family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
This is also my first blog. I have been meaning to write for a very long time, but always got stuck...which brand to write about first, which topic, what to celebrate etc.
I am now throwing caution to the wind and just giving it a go. Thanksgiving seems the perfect time. It also happens to coincide with the first anniversary of my website.
My Beauty World was born in lock down. I have worked as a business consultant for new cosmetic brands for over a decade and about a lifetime in the beauty industry. As the pandemic hit our shores my role became redundant overnight. Who needs new business development when you are fighting to maintain existing business? So, a fighter to the end I started building my own website.
I always dreamed of having my own web shop, but never envisioned building it myself. I am now trying to tackle SEO, social media and all the tech in one go. I'm still learning, but also enjoying it. As my site grows, I know this is something I have created through my passion for skincare, natural beauty and cosmetics.
Going back to thanksgiving this immediately brings up the associated sales event Black Friday. I have debated with myself whether or not to take part in this. I do not agree with the overspend encouraged every year and the resulting waste created by quickly discarded products. However, retail is how I make my living and as I am celebrating the first year of my website I have decided to offer a 30% discount on everything until Cyber Monday. Spend it well, buy something you really know you want and will use. A little something to bring you joy!
