Beauty Products All Packed Safely and Ready to Go

The beauty of packaging is that it is designed to protect the products that are contained within. It serves other purposes too, of course, in that it makes a product look even more beautiful to those looking to buy it. Many are attracted by beauty and particularly with beauty products that are intended for that purpose.

The beauty packaging wholesale options available are out there to protect and impress. If a wholesaler cannot promote a product’s beauty to a retailer, then it is less likely a customer will want to buy the product. There are so many cosmetics products out there that it becomes more important to stand out for all the right reasons. That is, to have a packaging that is protective and keeps a product looking good, and one that appeals to the majority. To go niche can lose a whole market of customers, but then, that might be the market for which you are aiming for.

How Will Packaging Protect Beauty Products?

The package will need to handle the transportation of products. Not just once, but several times along a supply chain. This will mean from manufacturer to wholesaler, then from wholesaler to many retailers. Then customers may well transport again if delivering a beauty product as a present to a loved one.

Glass is consistent in that it protects from contamination. However, it is also breakable. Its fragility is a factor in how carefully it must be transported and in the increase in wastage should crates of beauty products become damaged as a result. It can be a small price to pay, though, when we consider its other advantages such as it being better for the environment and the way it always looks more luxurious.

Environmental Factors

All glass is recyclable, compared to some plastics being that way.

Plastics will normally be recycled mechanically. They will go through a process of sorting, cleaning, shredding, melting, and remoulding. It is a more arduous process than with glass and will depend on the plastic being suitable. The problem with recycling plastic is that each time plastic is recycled it will degrade in quality. Every time plastic is melted, its polymer chains will partially be broken down, which will decrease the viscosity and tensile strength of the plastic and so make it harder to be processed. Glass has the edge when it comes to recycling.

Cost Considerations

Every business will need to weigh up the cost, whether dealing in cosmetics or electrical items. We have to be aware that glass is heavier to transport, and this will put up its transportation costs. This then must be balanced with the added appeal of the product in respect of customer demand. Our level of sales will be linked to the demand for our product. This can be increased or decreased by the packaging decisions that we make on behalf of the business. We can control that.

Shared Knowledge

It is good to share knowledge with others about important considerations such as packaging. It affects us all and nobody wants to think about damaged stock when we can pass on our wealth of experience to others and avoid it. Unfulfilled orders because of damaged goods instead of perfect ones arriving can impact company profits and reputations. There can be penalties for late delivery. Delivery on time means a package arriving in perfect condition.


Packaging is heavily linked to marketing because its protections protect business reputations when they avoid products being damaged. Luxury can be defined by packaging, which gives those marketing products the edge when it comes to working out promotions that work.

It is peace of mind to know that the beauty products being sent are well protected. This is a financial concern, otherwise, making good packaging something of a worthwhile investment decision. We need to think of initial margins with our profit but not to the detriment of increased waste when products can be so easily damaged and then cost us money later. Improving the way a product looks is a further consideration to be explored and effective market research should provide the answer to that one.


The flirtation Experiment

 #TheFlirtationExperiment is a book that Every married person, every engaged to be married person needs to read this book.   I am going to be buying some to give for any friends who get engaged.  After the first two chapters I knew I had to continue reading.

I have so much to say about this book, and much of it is far too personal to write about on this platform. But oh goodness - Christian ladies, pick this one up! I do not see how you can go wrong spending time with The Flirtation Experiment! ❤

The Flirtation Experiment was brought about by Phylicia watching none other than a Hallmark movie. If you've ever seen a Hallmark movie and you're past the newlywed phase, you've probably noticed what she did - that romance, specifically flirting, doesn't look like that once you've been married for a while! But whyyy is that?! So she researched and compiled a list of 30 ways to flirt with her husband and embarked on this experiment. She told Lisa about her idea and they joined forces to bring readers this helpful and honest book about what it looks like to intentionally express affection, support, love, and flirtation with your husband. The authors have different personalities and are at different points in life, but oddly I was able to identify with most of what both of them had to say.

I HIGHLY recommend this book! Start it today. Seriously, going into the busiest time of the year when so many of us do consume romantic movies and books - this is the PERFECT time to do your own flirtation with your husband. Whether you've been married for 5 years or 30 years, you'll love this book!!

From popular Christian voices Lisa Jacobson and Phylicia Masonheimer, The Flirtation Experiment inspires you to strengthen your marriage with a fun, unexpected approach that leads to the depth, richness, and closeness you desire.  

After reading The Flirtation Experiment, wives will… be filled with hope and encouragement for how they can make a powerful, positive change in their marriages, become empowered to pursue their husbands romantically, understand the Bible invites women to be proactive in their marriages, be motivated to consistently love in creative ways, and forge closeness and intimacy in their marriages.

The assumption among some believers is that pursuit is a man’s job. The complementarian belief is that the man—or rather, husband—is the spiritual leader. Some teachers expand this biblical ethic to include traditional cultural norms, arguing that because men are leaders, only men can show romantic interest. Only the man can ask a woman out, not vice versa. Only men initiate sex in marriage, and so on. But is this really what we see in Scripture?

Song of Solomon indicates otherwise:

I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me. Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.

Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flour- ish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves.

The mandrakes give a smell, and at our gates are all manner of pleasant fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.

This book will take you to a thriving marriage

Adding A Dash Of Curb Appeal To The Home'

 Do you feel like the exterior of your home is a little lacking? Perhaps you’re starting to think of your home as an investment, and you want to know what can be done to protect or enhance it, maximizing its potential for value growth. While it’s certainly not the only option, taking a look at the exterior of your home and finding ways to up its curb appeal is always a good option. After all, it’s what advertises the home.

Refresh the garden

The first impression that your home makes is going to be very important when it comes to drawing any interest from buyers, now or in the far future. There are a few things that can ruin that first impression like a messy garden. As such, you should make sure that you take the time to, at least, tidy the garden up, from mowing the lawn and pulling the weeds to pruning bushes and trees. Of course, if you’re looking to enhance rather than just maintain the exterior of the home, then you might want to look at working with a local residential landscaper who can help you transform your garden into one of the best selling points of the entire house.

Tidy more than just the garden

There’s work that can be done to rejuvenate and update the exterior around the garden, too. For instance, you can look at the exterior wall of the home, as well as any walkway, driveway, and so on. The chances are that dirt, grime, and moss will build up on these over time. By hiring a pressure washer (or a professional to use it), you can clean it away, leaving the surface as it’s supposed to look beneath. When it comes to the exterior of the home, a few additions such as lighting can give it a nice, welcoming, and warm glow. Some potted plants by the door can be a dash of green that makes up for a lacking garden, if that’s an issue, too.

Give the home a facelift

If you are looking for a major change and you don’t mind the major investment that can come with it, you can go a lot further than making changes around the garden. One of the biggest projects for curb appeal is to install a new facade with the help of services such as Build With Rise. A new facade, also known as exterior cladding, can not only wholly transform the entire appearance of the home, but it also has some practical applications, as well. For one, it adds additional insulation, which can make the home more energy-efficient and easier to heat (or keep heat out), but it also preserves the facade underneath, keeping your walls safe from wear and tear, especially those caused by the elements.

The fixtures can make a difference, too

Aside from the facade itself, you can also work to update the fixtures that fit into it, as well. We’re talking primarily about the windows and the doors. New installations from teams like your local Renewal by Andersen dealer can come with a host of benefits. First of all, their appearance can help modernize the home a lot, making it seem more welcoming and better suited to modern standards. But that facet is more than just skin deep. With better insulation, not to mention the security benefits of stronger windows and doors, they add real, practical value to the home, as well.

Don’t forget the roof

It’s a common renovation for a good reason: a well-maintained roof is vital for the health of your home. Indeed, if you let the roof fall into disrepair without doing anything about it, then leaks, poor heating, and mold are going to be just a few of the problems that follow. However, the roof is also one of the parts of the home that stands out visibly, the most, when approaching it from afar. Even if it’s just mossy or there’s some mess up there, you want to make sure that you get rid of it. You shouldn’t replace your roof for aesthetic reasons, primarily, but if you do have to do it, the newly added shine can definitely help the home.

Your curb appeal is what brings people to your front door. In terms of your home as an investment, the more interest in it, the more likely you are to get multiple offers, which drive up the value of your home. Even if you’re not planning to sell it in the near future, this investment is always a good idea.


Companies Who Give Back

For years to come, the pandemic will influence so many different aspects of the economy. With this in mind, there are companies who make it their mission to give back to the community and sponsor charities that are near and dear to their hearts. It is widely known that customers today want to support businesses that give back. According to Forbes, “When given the choice between two similar brands or products, 71% of consumers will purchase from a purpose-driven company over the alternative. Nearly 80% of consumers are more likely to remember a company with a strong purpose and 4.5 times more likely to recommend it to friends and family.” 

If you’re interested in supporting some companies who give back, here are a few companies ranging in size that pride themselves on their charitable initiatives. 

Inkwell Press 

With a mission to help their customers be more productive and hit their goals, the woman-owned business Inkwell Press focuses its philanthropy efforts on giving back to local schools and women starting their lives over. Tanya Dalton, Inkwell’s CEO, and founder wanted to give back to teachers, as she was once a teacher herself. This led her to start Quills for a Cause with its two main initiatives being Get 1 & Give 1 and the New Life Initiative. 

The Get 1 & Give 1 cause is focused on teachers and students. At the beginning of every academic year, they donate a planner for every planner that was purchased the past year to teachers and homeschool parents. Last year alone, they were able to donate over $100,000 worth in planners. 

The New Life Initiative is focused on women who are wanting a fresh start and working to create new lives for themselves. Inkwell also donates second-hand and surplus items to battered women shelters and residential treatment centers to help these individuals get back on their feet!

Bob’s Discount Furniture 

Bob’s Discount Furniture is a low-price furniture and bedding retailer that prides itself on providing quality furniture for an affordable price. But that’s not all the owner Bob Kaufman, founder, and CEO prides himself on as the company has various charitable efforts. 

Bob’s Discount Furniture Charitable Foundation and Bob’s Outreach program have worked hard to provide aid and donations to hundreds of organizations and individuals with $2.75 million in donations distributed each year to various charity groups. Some of these philanthropy groups include social service agencies, charities, home groups, local fundraisers, children’s charities, and school service groups. 

Most recently Bob’s Cafe is running an initiative to give back to children’s hospitals. Every store features a cafe with complimentary coffee and baked goods with the opportunity to make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. From now until March 31, 2022, they will be matching any donation met to benefit multiple locations. 

Love with Food 

Love with Food is a snack subscription box service that delivers clear snacks directly to your home on a monthly basis. The Food with Love team will search for the latest and greatest emerging snack brands with clean ingredients that are ethically sourced. They will then curate a box of all gluten-friendly snacks and send them to your home for one down payment for the subscription box. 

From there the Food with Love company will then donate one meal for each month that you’re a member and one for each purchase you make, through their partnership with Feeding America! In addition, every dollar helps provide 10 meals secured by Feeding American and local member food banks. According to their website, they have already donated 17 million meals to date! What a great way to discover new snacking options while also helping to feed others! 

These are only a few options of different companies to support that give back to their local communities, however, there are many more to choose from. So many customers today are looking to support companies who give back. The more we as a society of consumers trend toward expecting this from the businesses we buy for, the more we will be able to help others through not only these trying times but the trying times of the future as well.

Important Health Considerations to Make as You Age

 As you get older, you can often be faced with a number of different health complications and considerations. Even if you are feeling better than ever right now, it is still important to be prepared for anything you might run into in the years ahead. You have always focused on having good health and you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle as you get older. Whether you want to set a good example for your children, or you want to stay in good health so that you can continue to work for as long as possible, there are a number of reasons why you should be aware of your health as you get older. Here are just a handful of considerations and lifestyle changes you can make today, which should help you during the aging process.

Upgrade Your Skincare Regime

As you get older you will start to notice significant changes to the way your skin looks and feels. There is nothing to worry about when it comes to skincare, you simply need to make a few changes to your normal routine. If you aren’t currently using retinol as a daily product in your skincare regime, now would be the perfect time for you to start using it. Retinol is an amazing product for anti-aging and it can help the appearance of your skin appear fresh and youthful. Similarly, you should also think about applying SPF to your face every single morning whether you live in a sunny country or not. Applying sunblock to your face will help to reduce wrinkles and protect your aging skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

Keep Up With Dentist Visits

Going to the dentist is extremely important no matter how old you are. However as you get older you are more prone to dental complications. The enamel on your teeth can weaken over time, so it is important to attend your dentist visit regularly so they can check you over. Eventually, you may need to have dentures, which will be explained by your current dentist. Although going to the dentist can be quite an overwhelming experience, attending your regular checkups will help you to stay healthy as you get older.

Be Prepared for Hair Loss

Hair loss is something that many aging people dread to think about. Although it sounds like a negative process it is completely natural and you may expect it to happen at any point during adulthood. If you are worried about hair loss, then you may want to begin comparing hair loss treatments on the market. There are a number of products you can buy online or over the counter at your local drugstore, which will help to alleviate the signs of hair loss. There is no shame in losing your hair as you get older; many people choose to embrace it and they still look incredible!

Check in on Your Eyesight

Your eyesight can deteriorate as you get older, which is why it is important to stay on top of your regular checkups. Going to see an optician every single year will help you to make sure your glasses prescriptions are correct. This is especially important if you are a driver, or you need to wear your glasses to carry out your day-to-day job. Taking care of your eyesight is extremely important; deteriorating eyesight can have negative effects on your overall health and well-being.

Stay on Top of Pain

As you get older, it is inevitable that you are going to feel more aches and pains on a day-to-day basis. Believe it or not, you don’t have to live with this type of pain, you should be able to manage it with the help of a healthcare professional. Taking regular medication is not something to be embarrassed or afraid of. If certain medicines help you to stay on top of your pain you should be taking them as advised by your doctor.

Manage Your Diet

As you get older your diet requirements become slightly different than when you were younger. Eating more iron and increasing your calcium intake will help you to maintain the strength in your bones as you go through the aging process. Try to incorporate more leafy green vegetables into your daily diet; adding them to stews, soups and curries will help you to absorb more nutrients in your daily meals. You should also aim to drink around two liters of water every single day to stay hydrated.

Exercise Regularly

Even as you get older, regular exercise should always be your number one priority. Moving your body every single day can create better health overall as you go through the aging process. If you are looking for a gentle way to exercise every day, you may want to consider yoga, walking or swimming. Finding a local friend or family member to hold you accountable on your fitness journey, will help you to stay on track with good habits. Exercise is not only beneficial for your physical health but it also has a number of advantages for your mental health. As soon as you complete a workout or get home from your daily walk you will feel in high spirits as endorphins have been released in your body. Getting older can often cause heightened anxiety, so when you are willing to exercise regularly you will be contributing to better mental health.

Hopefully, these ideas will spark some inspiration as you start to create the healthiest habits in your day-to-day life. Whether you are visiting the dentist more often, or you want to stay on top of your aches and pains, the word “health“ can mean different things to different people. Ultimately, you need to approach healthy living as a lifestyle change, rather than a quick fix. This will help you to create manageable and long-term habits that will help you to stay on track with all of your health goals. Now is the ideal time to stay on top of all of your different health considerations and enjoy the process of aging gracefully.

Sons of Thunder, Part 2- Redemption

 #SonsofThunderMN- Redemption- Date Night, Season 2 Episode 4

Mike was thrown from his horse and gets injured. An inspector arrives to permit the rode. Jacob pursues Sandy and finally convinces her to go on a date with him and Logan pursues Addison for a date. Friendly competition between Logan and Jacob. The history between Mike and Ethan is revealed which I wont discuss here as I do not want to ruin the show for you .

The thing this season taught me most is that in order to move forward when you are angry at someone, you have to fully forgive them or else you will live in guilt. BE willing to fully forgive.

  • “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need. – Ephesians 4:26-28

  • But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. – Matthew 5:44-4 The temptation to return to bad habits... the temptation will always come back to bite you, but you have to stand firm and do not return to those bad habits.
