New Plans and Upcoming Posts

Its a little after 9 pm and I am sitting in my living room planning out a new business venture. The rest of my family is busy doing what they do best (video games, computers, and of course my youtube guru) . I am the thinker and planner in the group. I'm not saying they don't think or plan, but I am the one who always has something in the works. The latest is the new business venture.



My husband and I essentially work from home, though we do have appointments on a regular basis which means we are still out a good bit of the time. I love what we do and I love the extra time it allows us to spend with each other and our family. I have several things planned to branch off from our current business, but I've recently decided to get off my butt and FINALLY do something I've been talking about for years...Events and Weddings!

As I mentioned already, I am a planner. I am good at planning and I'm definitely detail oriented. I love mapping out something and seeing it come together. I also love setting goals and working to achieve them. Besides that who doesn't love a great party? I am working to get everything started in addition to collaborating with a few other great people. I figured if I was going to do this I might as well have all my bases covered! With that being said in addition to the planning we will also offer wedding officiants, planning, decorating, rentals, photography, makeup artists, setting up, and of course the clean up. I am working to make sure all bases are covered!

I've been talking about doing this for years, but I never seemed to really motivate myself to get started. Since we've basically been working from home for the past six months to a year I thought now would be the perfect time. I don't have to worry about scheduling between jobs since I already have that taken care of. I make my schedule so now is the perfect time.

I came up with "Flair" back in 2010 because I had plans of opeing a boutique. I opted for buying into another existing business so I didn't go full force with the title in that aspect. I did, however, start a jewelry line that was titled "Flair by Brandi" and eventually formed my blog with the same title. Since most people who know me already associate everything with "Flair" I decided to keep it somewhere in the title so "A Touch of Flair : Weddings and Events " is slowly coming to be!

I am working on a website currently, but for now I may just start out by using the blogger platform. I'm excited about getting this up and running and will definitely keep everyone posted on our latest venture.

Stay tuned for some reviews I have planned on some of my latest Urban Decay purchases and don't forget about my newest Erin Condren planner!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Love and hugs as always!!

September is Here: Insta Update

Time has seriously flown by the past few months. I have been so busy with work, family, and projects here and there. I am working on getting more organized and will hopefully be able to share a few things on that subject soon! I plan to do a series called "Project Organize" which will kick off soon! 

I am also happy to say that I recently ordered my 2015 Erin Condren life planner. I was so thrilled with the one I purchased last year that I decided to go ahead and grab another one! I carry mine with me everywhere and it definitely helps me stay on track! I will be doing another review on the new planner in the next few weeks! 

Here are a few photos to update whats been going on lately! Stay posted for "Project Organize" and my latest reviews!

Loved that saying and how cute are these kittens??
