Easter, 2016… Beau Satchelle is Hopeful

This blog post originated and was first published on our former company Bedrock Beauty, LLC website during the Paris, France incident in 2015. Given the events of yesterday, we pray for those who encountered such horrific acts of violence and join hands across the globe for a more peaceful and harmonious future. Christians all over the world are preparing for Easter; which is one of their biggest religious holiday of the year. Easter or Resurrection Sunday which commemorates the ascension of Jesus Christ into Heaven, is a festive, celebratory day for Christian believers. Easter represents hope. The reverse of hope was sadly brought to our attention again with the horrific acts of violence that occurred yesterday in Brussels, Belgium, the headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Another stark reminder of the type of world we live in today… the unfortunate “new normal”. During our re-branding, Beau Satchelle has continued to build friendships and has developed working partnerships with a number of European fashion designers, makers, bloggers and vendors. We are heartbroken that our international neighbors are experiencing such tragedy and fear. Its unimaginable to go about business as usual and live with some semblance of normalcy when uncertainty surrounds your community. Time, once again, appeared to stand still for world citizens as video and pictures were communicated through traditional media and social media. What is encouraging is through all of this tragedy, to witness stories of human beings pulling together to help the injured. The words “my brother’s keeper” plays out repeatedly and that during this Holy Week, I am hopeful that all peoples of various religions and non religions will once again stand up in the face of fear. These events once again shows our solidarity as humans and how we ultimately have to share this one […]

What To Buy Your Love On Valentine’s Day

Love is in the air as that time of the year is approaching again. The onset of February means Valentine’s Day. February 14 is one of the most built-up days of the year. Thanks to the candy and card companies, who turned a 15th century priest’s story into a commercial holiday, we can’t go anywhere without seeing pink, red and white hearts everywhere, ads for chocolate, jewelry and other luxury items, and the expectation that men are supposed to shower their partners with jewels. It’s a day that requires deep pockets of some whose lady loves are expecting a materialistic declaration of love. Still, if you want to keep the peace – and earn big points at the same time – there’s certainly no harm in spoiling your Valentine with a little surprise. If you’re single, you may want to indulge yourself on this day. After all, as the luscious blonde in those hair dye commercial says, “you’re worth it!” Here are some gift ideas for your sweetheart – or yourself. Give the gift of gorgeous blooms Whether you present her with a bouquet of flowers, or a single red rose to declare your love, make sure you get to the florist early. Remember that everyone and their cousin will be racing to the florist on February 14, so if you want to avoid being stuck with a bunch of wilted, left over blooms, you’ll want to order early. A word of warning: the markup on flowers on this day will be insane, so be prepared. I Chocolates and candy Whether you buy your Valentine chocolates from a fancy chocolatier, or the drugstore, the sentiment is the same, but try to splurge if you can – maybe she will share with you! And chocolate is, after all, an aphrodisiac. Diamonds […]
