Musings from the Moon – December 2018 Newsletter

Happy ChristmasJingle Bell, Jingle Bell Rock, Jingle Bell Rocks – The holiday season is in full swing. I know everyone gets super busy this time of year and things can get stressful. Try to take some time for yourself and remember to breathe.

Raspberry Moon will be closed from December 22 to December 27 – Mom, Douglas and I are traveling to PA to hang out with Nana and the family. I will be in the shop on the 28th and then closed again Dec 29 to Jan 2. However, if you need a gift certificate, you can purchase them online at your convenience at www.RaspberryMoonST.com.

Christmas owlThank you to everyone that has supported Raspberry Moon this year. It has been an amazing year and I love being able to do work I enjoy and spend time with fabulous people every day.

Please be safe and enjoy your holiday, or if you are unfestive this time of the year and just want to bury your head in the sand, do things that you love – rest, read a book or two, binge watch something funny (I love the The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon! Foul language but hilarious), go hiking or whatever works for you that you never have time to do because life is busy.

Happy Holidays,

Nicole


It’s a Different Holiday Shopping “Experience”

If you have some time tonight and want to experience a different kind of shopping adventure, be sure to stop by the shop from 5 to 7ish and have fun at different stations set up throughout the shop. Great gift opportunities for a few people on your list or for yourself.

Raspberry Moon's 2018 Holiday Shopping Experience is December 5th

Wednesday, December 5th from 5 pm to 7 pm

We’re doing something a little different this year. Don’t just look at what all we have to offer for you and your loved ones, experience them!

Pick the perfect Holiday Red – I love our Besame Lipsticks! This is your opportunity to try different shades and find your perfect red. You can do a little lip exfoliation first from our lip duo kit before finding the shade for you.

Cleanser, Serums, Moisturizers, Oh My – What do I need for my skin to look and feel its best? We’ll have a Tester Station for our skin care, with kits small and large ready for gift giving (or buying for yourself).

Skin Script Aroma Bar with our facial treatment enzymes and masks with cards describing the benefits and uses for each. Skin Script smells amazing, and as these products aren’t available outside of a facial service we don’t usually have them on tap as testers. Experience them for yourself and we’ll help you figure out the best ones for you and/or a loved one to use the next time you’re in for a facial treatment.

Fast Fix for Rough Hands – Try the Skin Script Retinol scrub as a hand treatment and then try our fabulous hand lotion.

Holidays Got You Frazzled? Let us help put you together with our 5 and 10 minute prep station for a perfect holiday glow.

And of course we’ll have special event pricing, some grab bag deals, and some sercies!
