09/24/2020

Yesterday we had a full house in the studio and I kept looking around and thinking how cool it is that these 4 women work so hard to make the Bella Vita ship sail. It was also a very bittersweet day because it was our Sydney’s last day working for us. ⠀

We are a small small business and we work in very close proximity together. We get to know each other well and are always there for each other. We become family!⠀

Sydney has been such a blessing over the past year. She and her husband Austin (who works next door at @handlebarbershop ) are two of the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful people I’ve ever met. I’ve been secretly watching them and their relationship for the past year and taking notes on how to be a better human. 🥰 ⠀

We’ve weathered intense holdiay seasons, shop rearrangements, closures, reopenings, in store events, shop lifters, a pandemic and so much more together. You’ve never told me my ideas were crazy, you’ve just gone with the flow and excelled at all you’ve brought to the table. I thank you and wish you and Austin the best of luck in your new adventures in St. Louis! Even though I wish I could keep you forever, I’m proud of you for following your dreams! 🥺😘

I’ll be up to visit soon 🥳🧡🙏🏼⠀

Happy Autumn Equinox! The Equinox occurs at 8:30 this morning, and that is when the sun will be exactly above Earth’s equator, moving from north to south. The day will be equally as light as it is dark... might be hard to notice here in Little Rock because of the rainy day. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I am welcoming this rainy day and the cooler temps. They will work wonders on what is left in our garden and will cleanse the city. I am also embracing a new season with open arms and an open mind. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I don't need to talk about the challenges this year has thrown at us... We all know. ⁠⠀
Let's take time to focus on anything positive and spread that positivity and kindness in our daily lives. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We've been changing up some of our offerings at the shop. Stay tuned for a blog post all about our new "Nourish" section. Hopefully that blog post gets written today and posted tomorrow. 😎⁠⠀
⁠⠀
As always, thank you all for loving what we do at Bella Vita, shopping local, and following along on our journey! 🙏🏼⁠⠀

So excited to be working with a new retailer in Todos Santos, Mexico.

We made a custom stamp of the outline of Baja and paired that charm with a GPS coordinate charm for custom necklaces. Then made some Coordinate cuffs and I 💛 TACOS cuffs for good measure! 🌮

Did you know we can turn any line drawing in to a steel stamp that we can stamp on to our metal charms?! Yep! We cna do that! Send us all your ideas and questions about this service! And Happy Friday! 🥳

I can't wait to share the magic that @allieatkissonimaging @sydneystonershelton and I made yesterday during our photoshoot.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In the mean time, here is a little story about how I met Allie... She approached me last year and offered to come shoot some product images for me. She was looking for a way to expand her portfolio of commercial work. I was a little surprised that she was willing to do it for free... but told her to bring it on! ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
First off, Allie is one of the sweetest and kindest human beings I've ever had the pleasure of working with. This goes A LONG way in my book. Second, she delivered a fantastic set of images in hours. She still delivers her images in hours even though I try to encourage her to be kind to herself and take a few days 😂 ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Her commitment to her craft is something else. Im so thrilled that she reached out to me as she is now pretty much our resident product photographer. We LOVE you ALLIE!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, my unsolicited marketing tip for the day... Sometimes it is 100% ok to give away a little! Especially if you are trying to build your brand. I like to think of my restaurant days and how my Grandpa would give away a free appetizer or dessert. So now I apply that to my business. My free appetizer might be a free charm or jewelry repair... Just something to think about! Would love to continue the convo in the comments if anyone has anything to add.⁠⠀

We can’t wait to see you today! The shop is bursting with new masks, mask holders, bandanas, puzzle, art, bells and chimes and so so so much more!

I’m also anxiously awaiting our first 30lbs of Christmas decor that is due to arrive today! Y’all are gonna LOVE what we are showcasing this year! We will debut it all at our Holiday Open house in early November! ❤️❤️❤️

And, I’m definitely NOT trying to rush the holidays. I’m just a planner and it takes a lot of prep work to get all this inventory documented before we put it ou for sale! Im definitely a “summer forever” type of person. But being a shop owner has turned me a little bit to a “holiday person”.

What are you? Can’t wait for the holidays? Or longing for more summer?

Happy Sunday friends. What does the day hold for you?!

I’m headed to the grocery store bc we are out of essentials! Then some gardening, cooking, pickling, fermenting some of our garden haul to preserve for the winter.

Happy Saturday!!

Since the beginning of COVID I’ve been rethinking some of my gift offerings at the shop. I thought long and hard about how to have more essential and consumable items, and listened to your feedback on our survey last month.

Yesterday the last of our shipments arrived and Im so excited to debut our new “Nourish” section. We’ve moved our incense to the other side of the room to make space for this new section that is focused on Nourishing your self and your body. We have new spice blends, teas, turmeric drink, chai, flower seeds, sprout seeds + sprouting kits, tea towels, reusable bags and straws as well as all our favorite candles + apothecary items that we’ve always carried.

We’re open 10-4 today and can’t wait to see you! 😷💕☀️

I just love how this custom necklace turned out! My friend Cathy wanted to memorialize all the dogs she’s loved over the years. We used one of our bronze castings and then hand stamped each dogs name on a brass disc. She will be able to add to this design for years to come.

How can I help make something special for you? I’m always here to help create memories that can be handed down generation after generation!

✨ I am very excited to show off the newest display at the shop. I recently stumbled upon a new incense company that has been in business since the 1960's, based in the US, but many of their products come from around the world. I literally have access to thousands of new (to me) incenses! ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I didn't use incense regularly until a few years ago. I started using it to mask the smell of my old man dog that was spending most of his time in our house. Now, I burn incense all day, inside and outside!! We have so many varieties to choose from, strong AF, all natural, and lighter options for those that don't like overwhelming scents. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Stop by the shop to peruse our new selection or shop online under the "wellness" section! We are happy to help guide you through all the new scents and stuffs to burn! ⁠⠀

Comments

These photos don't do justice to the products I have just had delivered, but I wanted to thank you for the attention to detail in the presentation of my gifts. My cousin (who lives in Spain) sent me these gifts for my birthday, knowing I won't be able to spend it with my family. It was such a pleasant and beautiful surprise. Moreover, I really appreciated that Brandy called ahead of time to let me know about the delivery and that she was wearing a mask when she knocked on my door. Thank you so much for bringing such joy to my day! ❤
Bella Vita is over the moon to be mentioned in Amy Garland Music's "Mom Approved" profile in Savvy.
We are gearing up for a big week! Friday we are hosting one of our most popular events, 2nd Friday Art Night - Bella Vita Earring Party!. Then Hillcrest Harvestfest on Saturday. ***Also, the shop will be closed on Saturday in order for us to be at Harvestfest***
You are AMAZING!!! :-)
