Zits (EWWW!) Pop n’ Play Pimples Review

The Zits Pop n’ Play Pimples come in packs like those pictured above and contain easy peel off stickers that you can put on your body. They have a variety of sizes, so you can have small ones and big ones. They are safe and non-toxic. It is sometimes a little tricky to pop, and sometimes when you do, you get that exploding effect (kinda like the real thing). I popped one of them on my daughter, and it got in my hair and all over my glasses. Yes, it was gross, but my girls and I were dying of laughter by the time we were done.

Simple tips to help build and retain customers

When I began my children’s party planning business over 10 years ago, it felt more like an adventure than anything else. Before that point, I had done a few MLMs, where there was someone above me guiding me to help me make sales and connect with customers. When I took the plunge to go out on my own, it was just me. Social Media was developing more, and things changed very quickly in the way that people marketed and grew their business. While I took a step back from the party planning business, I have been working on growing my brand as a blogger working with brands. I also help small businesses navigate social media and develop their own brands. It can be very rewarding, but it can also be very frustrating at times. I thought I would take a moment today to talk ways to gain and keep your customers that have worked for me.
