Made in the Valley in the Daily News!

Hello gorgeous friends!

Check out this Daily News feature write-up about Made in the Valley, The Valley Girls Grew Up!

For the full article go to:

"...Susan Kushnatsian of Porter Ranch cast aside a child care agency she ran for years after launching Bee Gorgeous, an organic skin care line, two years ago. She started the business after she experimented with making her own products because she's allergic to nearly everything selling on store shelves. Kushnatsian knew she was onto something good after customers lined up at a Green Expo in 2008 at the Los Angeles Convention Center for her homemade lip balm, lotions and all-in-one cleanser and moisturizer. Even during the recession, Kushnatsian has found a reliable customer base by selling her handmade line to boutiques on trendy Melrose Avenue and in Venice. She also has celebrity clients. Meeting with other business owners involved in Made in the Valley keeps her motivated. "There's so much going on at the meetings, and you leave with this whole attitude of `I can do it,"' she said... "

Here is today's poetry submission to start your Monday off on an empowering note. For more information, visit ENJOY!

How I know that things always get better

I'm not going to tell you that it feels easy
Maybe this morning you woke up under a heap of stones
I won't tell you that it doesn't feel
thin or frail
I know how the ironwood can be used to intimidate the skeletal withstand
I know what it means
to dote over a handful of bread
I know how it is to wake up with a mouthful of tears

Just this moment doesn't erase a heated scar
Doesn't move across the sky like a collapsed bone--
Doesn't hold you in that place that waits,
like oxblood, red, in a river of stones

But I do know what it means to lift your eyes up
I do know what it's like to look for the cottonwood
to long for a single reprieve--
I can tell you about the sugar loaf
bruised by a handful of lemon
I can tell you how commodious pain
dipped behind the bloodbone
and came up reborn

See I'm not going to tell you that I received it easily
The most stubborn of thorns would be a witness in my side
But I will tell you
with hands full
with a clean heart-
that I do know what it's like to raise up a meal
of simple rice, yams a little bit of chicken & stew
to teary eyes that watched a memory
broken in the half moon of early morning
eyes that watched a ribbon of smoke dancing up from that plate of warm food
dancing like a woman alone on a Friday night;
Dig, hip-bone grind--lean into it again
and raise her arms to the sky

Hoping you have a lovely week!

Bee Well, Bee Loved, Bee Gorgeous

Springing Forward!

Hello readers,

Hope everyone remembered to spring forward into Daylight Savings' Time this weekend. We're springing forward here at Bee Gorgeous as well, with brand new updates to our website!

Check it out here:
You'll find that we've added a nifty PayPal button for your convenience. Now ordering online just got easier!
As spring approaches and sunnier days are here again, I hope all of you are taking time to plan your weekend getaways. I know I am! With stressful times such as these, it's even more important to find time for yourself and create a personal oasis of tranquility and balance. Even though we can't all afford to fly off to the South of France on the Concord for a couple weeks (especially nowadays), the small jaunt to a nearby resort town for a weekend can be just as delightful (and lighter on the wallet)! To make the trip even more pleasant, I highly recommend the latest addition to my new product list: The Bee Gorgeous Travel Pack!
(Just pop this in your carry-on
and you're good to go!)
If you ever wanted to sample all of our products but didn't want to buy each one separately, this is the perfect gift for you! In it you'll find our classic Lip Balm, Meil Hand & Body Veil, Salt & Sugar Scrub, Whipped Body Butter, Mini Lavender Lotion Bar & Mini Lavender Essential Oil Perfume. This wonderful little Spa in a Bag comes in an easy-to-carry clear travel case and is your one way ticket to GORGEOUS!
Also, take a peek at some of the exquisitely ornate lotion bars listed in Our Products menu. You can choose from a list of different fragrances in our drop down menu, such as Lavender (a big favorite), Green Tea, Black Tea, and Rose.
(Over 30+ varieties!)

Hope you take some time for yourself this Spring and stop to smell the freshly blooming flowers...
Bee Well, Bee Loved, Bee Gorgeous
