Now for something a little more serious… Did you know that hijackings and home invasions increased from last year? There are now an online courses that will teach you how to act during these situations. Visit for more information.

It’s official, I got confirmation that the fragrance sale is going online in 2020! I don’t have the launch date as yet, but… as soon as I have it, you will know too.

Please save you money for the sale – IT’S COMING!
