Texas Avenue Makers Fair, Makeup, and Life

Hey Everyone

so it feels like forever since I have actually blogged and not just posted a youtube link on here. So I thought I would catch everyone up on whats going on with me.  Well first and foremost I would like to invite everyone to the Texas Avenue Makers Fair in Down Shreveport http://make.texasave.org/
I will be having a booth for my cosmetics there and am super duper excited this will be my first time selling Simply Kendra outside of the Internet, it took a little encouraging from my sweet friend Mandi http://waiteswaiting.blogspot.com but I am ready to get my brand out there!

I am also excited about my new and upcoming Lip balms!  I am proud to say they will be completely Vegan. After doing alot of research on waxes I made the decision that beeswax was definitely not the direction I wanted to take so the wax in my base is going to be soy, yay to not Exploiting the bees!  All my eye shadows are also Vegan!  The only exception to my line are my blushes which contain silk powder and although it is only a small percentage of my blend I just couldn't get the texture I wanted without it although it uses all natural ingredients it is not considered Vegan, but hopefully in the future I can find an alternative means to make my Vegan customers happy.

In other news I am back home living in Louisiana and I just couldn't be happier. My husband just landed a new job and I have become comfortable with my role as housewife/online entrepreneur :) 

Beyond my business life I plan to plant a garden very soon and am attending a seminar on food preservation this Friday so I can get a heads up on different ways of storage for all the wonderful veggies and herbs that I plan on harvesting this summer, I also hope to learn to make jellies, chowchows, relishes and all those wonderful yummie things that I will be able to can.  Did you know that once you can stuff it will last 7 years? wowie zowie! It always good to be prepared!

Anyways that's whats been going on my loves, I hope this finds you all well and that you have a Fabulous Week!
