Simple Treasures for Sale New Years Resolutions

As I am sure you are doing this time a year I am doing some planning for the new year.   I have come up with the following New Years Business Resolutions that I am going to do my best to see through.

1.  Work on lowering shipping prices
I understand that no one likes to pay shipping.  I myself find it difficult to pay shipping on things I order online.I pledge to do my best to lower my cost on the shipping I pay so that I can pass the savings onto you.  Hopefully in the end I would like to offer free shipping to everyone and still keep the prices low on the products.

2.  Work on quality of photos for website
I am most certainly not  a professional photographer.   I have learned a little and hopefully will expand on what I have learned to improve the quality of the photos on the website.

3.  Work on expanding makeup lines
I would like to expand on the items I sell in the makeup section of the website.  From time to time I may be asking for everyone’s input in order to keep the options fresh and so that there is something for everyone.

4.  Work on expanding products for men
While working with Bradley University it was pointed out several times that the website doesn’t offer enough items for men.   I plan on working towards expanding that section of the website as well.   From time to time I may be asking for everyone’s input on different ideas of what everyone would like to see.

I am always open to anyone’s input so if there is something you would like to see let me know and I will see what I can do to accommodate you.

Year End Reflection

As I am sure everyone has noticed 2019 has been a very busy and active year for Simple Treasures.   We have done our best to but our best foot forward and stay true to our core values.

  1. A commitment to integrity, fairness and responsibility
  2. Delivering our very best in all we do, holding ourselves accountable for results.

In 2019 we implemented several new ways of communication.  Not all have come easily for us and we have had some bumps along the way.  Some examples are listed below.
 

  1. Weekly newsletter
  2.  Instagram Stories
  3.  Facebook Stories
  4. Posted new products on twitter
  5. Text message advertising
  6. Google My Business
  7. Holiday Flash Sales
  8. Facebook Messenger New Product Alerts
  9. Billboards

We have tried to send some interesting information in our weekly emails instead of constantly pushing for sales.  Not sure if we have succeeded with this but it was never our goal to be pushy.   We have only wanted to interact with our customers.

Along with our trying to provide information in a fun and informative way we have also tried to gather input from our current customers on what they wanted to see on the website.   We have set out to accomplish this 2 different ways.

        1.  Survey Monday Email
        2.  Bradley University Case Study

The information we received back has been invaluable and we can’t express enough our thanks to those who completed the survey.   We also want to thank the students at Bradley University for the case study they completed.   We hope to make several more improvements in 2020 as a result from that case study.

In the end we are very thankful for the opportunities that 2019 has brought to us and look forward to see what new things to come in 2020.

What are the top fall beauty trends for 2019?

1. Splashes of Makeup on Face

The avant-garde option for the fall/ winter 2019 makeup trends was a little bit creepy and very post-apocalyptic. Models’ faces were splashed with paint in a way that created an otherworldly and intimidating effect.

2. Barely-There Makeup

A no-makeup makeup look is a runway classic, intended to enhance models’ beauty without interfering, and to allow the audience to really focus on the clothes presented. Keeping things simple is perfectly acceptable, according to the fall/ winter 2019 makeup trends.

3. Blushing
This might be the most youthful of the fall/ winter 2019-2020 makeup trends. A touch of pinky blush is the easiest way to liven up the complexion and soften the face, so the runways where it showed up were definitely ones where innocence and purity were part of the aesthetic.

4. Bronzed Goddess

It’s hard to resist a bronzed goddess, especially when everyone else is looking pale and cold, which is why the runways where bronzer was used liberally really stood out to us, even though the rest of the makeup was kept understated.

5. Dewy Skin

The skin can get so dry and dull during winter, when there’s no moisture in the air and cold winds assault our faces. No wonder that designers and makeup artists alike wanted to go in the opposite direction, to show beautifully glow and hydrated skin that won’t get damaged by inclement weather. Notably missing from this trend: shimmery highlighters. This healthy glow is all about moisture.

6. Sparkle and Glitter
It’s fun to use a bit of glitter in your makeup look now and then, but for the fall 2019 makeup looks makeup artists went way above that, opting for lots of glitter rather than a subtle touch.

WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR A GIRL TO GET INTRODUCED TO MAKE UP?

Your daughter’s interest is normal and often starts at 9 and 10 years of age. Our children are curious, watching our every move. If you wear makeup, you have been indirectly showing her all you know about how to wear it. You have shown her when to “dress up” and when to have a more natural look by what you do. The issue now is when to start what makeup, and why.
She might have already done the pretend stage of putting on blush, lipstick and mascara when she was younger. Was it clear at that time that this was only dress-up? If so, you have already done some boundary setting with her.
Which brings us back to why she might want to wear makeup now. Is she hoping to feel more confident? Does she want someone special to notice her? Does she think it will create some difference in her relationships with her friends? What about wearing makeup will create this desired change? Are there other ways to meet her needs without wearing makeup? What will she do if the makeup doesn’t create the change she wants?

If your daughter feels that she needs makeup to deal with skin issues, address those from a skin care and dermatologic perspective. If peer pressure is an issue, make sure you remind her of the ways she has already chosen to not be like everyone else. Part of being who we are is developing our own style.

Most of the interviews with youth and parents done for this article do not see any arbitrary age when makeup suddenly becomes appropriate. In our culture, wearing makeup can be thought of as part of a coming of age ritual. As parents we may be more comfortable with the introduction of makeup starting slowly, perhaps with a sheer gloss lipstick before a neutral blush for cheeks and then something subtle for the eyes. This slow introduction could take a year and should be accompanied with good skin care, including instructing your daughter to wash her face morning and night, making sure to remove eye products.

Often, saying “no” to youth only makes wearing makeup seem more desirable to the point of overdoing it when away from home. You know if this is how our daughter might respond. If you can’t condone it, then one step you can take is refusing to pay for it. You don’t want to drive a wedge between you and your daughter, but you don’t like what is starting to happen when you go shopping with her. You feel pressured. Is there a way you can take charge by having her point out something she is interested in and then having her do a computer search for reviews from consumers and testing labs on the products for her type of skin? Does she know what her skin type is and how it might respond to these products?

I hope you now have some ways to explore the dimensions of makeup and skin care as well as strategies to deal with social pressures that will keep you two talking for years. Good Luck!
