Back From an Unintentional Blog Vacation!

I feel just horrible...
oh so neglectful...

Here I was, thinking I was working towards a lifelong habit of daily journaling and a true love affair with my Blog.

One of my goals for 'The Lather Project: 30 Soaps in 30 Days' was to develop a strict routine of posting to my Blog on a regular basis - and I've dropped the ball already. I posted several times after the Series ended (and actually thought I was doing pretty well!), but haven't since.

I can be quite hard on myself, especially about things like this, but I don't plan to drag on about it.

What I will do however, is update on what has been occupying all my time when I haven't been blogging:
  • I've been working on reorganizing and streamlining the Bellissima shops. We have several shops, as well as a 'Main' website ( and working on those and getting them organized and updated has been very time consuming!

  • I've been recruiting new Bellissima Affiliates. Bellissima has a wonderful work-from-home Program that allows people to get discounts off of our products, promote Bellissima and earn money while doing it! We have some amazing and successful women working with us now, and I'm personally proud of each and every one of them!

  • I've been working on producing more beautiful product photos! Selling online means being as visual as possible - with both pictures and words, so I've been trying to improve on our photos and product descriptions!

  • I've been developing some new items for the Fall Season. We've got some big product launches in store for our customers, including the much requested All Natural Mineral Makeup Setting Spray!

  • I've been preparing for the Holidays! It's never too early to start getting ready for retail's biggest selling season, and we've all been scurrying around like elves planning and strategizing for the Holidays!

  • I've been working on ideas for the next Blog Project! I had so much fun doing The Lather Project that I want to make sure I've got two blog series' planned a year. I don't want to give anything away, but we're planning on expanding our Spa, Bath & Body line soon - possibly in time for the Holidays!
  • All of these activities (and more, trust me!) has kept me pretty busy - but I never want to be so busy that I can't update my blog. No more unanticipated, unintentional, unplanned blog vacations! I am publicly re-dedicating myself to blogging on a regular basis, and making Bellissima's Blog a huge priority for my and my business.

So stay tuned - there's a lot more to come!
