My Online Store Is Done

Yepeyyyy, My online store website is now finish and here is the printscreen of my website. I still have to do few changes and add some products. I dont know if I can buy the domain tomorrow because it's holiday. Otherwise I will buy the domain after the holiday.

I have a temporary URL so it can take orders now, but I am not yet ready to take orders because I want to try everything by myself to see if there is any errors on the webite. I will actually send products here in Canada and USA to test the UPS shipping. Unfortunately, I can only take orders from USA and Canada for now. Once everything is set then I will set my website to take orders from any countries. Watch for my free samples!!! Happy New Year to all!!!

Ready To Send The Shipping Rules

At last, the vacation of the website programmer who is working on my online store website is done and today I will send her the shipping rules that I made and hopefully, my online store website will be done before the end of the week. I have a lot of changes to do on my products but I will just do it myself when I can access my account.

I want to order some of the ingredients that I will need for my mineral lipstic and eye makeup products. Also, I need to do some changes I made on the flavor and scent I made from my hair care products. My kids said it needs more scent. But both my suppliers are all close and will be open next year. Arg!!!! Well at least I am enjoying the mineral makeup that I made. I honestly love it and all the products that I will sell on my online store.

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus Is Presented to the Temple

Luke 2:22-40
Jesus Presented in the Temple

When the time came for their purification according to the law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord, (as it is written in the law of the Lord, every first born male shall be designated as holy to the Lord'), and they offered a sacrifice according to what is stated in the Law of the Lord, a pair of turtle-doves or two young pigeons.

Now there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, this man was righteous and devout, looking forward to Spirit rested on him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Messiah. Guided by the spirit, Simeon came into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him what was customary under the law. Simeon took him in his arm and praised God saying,
'Master, now you are dismising your
your servant in peace,
according to your word
for my eyes have seen your
which you have prepared in the
presence of all people,
a light of revelation for the Gentiles
and for glory to your people

And the child father and mother were amazed at what was being said about him. Then Simeon blessed them and said to his mother Mary, 'This child is destined for the falling and the rising of many in Israel and to be sign that will be opposed so that the inner thoughts of many will be revealed- and a sword will pierce your own soul too'.

There was also a prophet, Anna the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was of a great age, having lived with her husband for seven years aster her marriage, then as a widow to the age of eighty-four. She never left the temple but worshipped there with fasting and prayer night and day. At the moment she came, and began to praise God and to speak about the child to all who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem.

My Loose Mineral Foundation

I am done with the different colors of my mineral makeup that I want to appear on my online store. I am so happy with the result and I am more excited to start selling them. I computed the expenses and I am suprised how cheap I can offer my mineral makeup. I am happier with the color that I created for myself compare to Proactive foundation that I have been using for a long time. And more natural and no synthetic ingredients. I am now on my way to order some of the ingredients that I will use for miineral lipstick and eyeliner and other beauty products to complete the beauty set category. I will only create natural colors to start with. All the colors and texture of my makeup are my personal choices for my personal use. I might add more choicesonce I start getting requests.

Happy with The Products

On my second trial to make a personalized color for loose mineral foundation, I was able to create a perfect tone for my sensitive skin. Me and my kids had fun playing around with the kit. I am so happy that I can save a lot of money with my beauty products. I love my products and I can't wait to start marketing them.

The website programmer who was assigned to do the first 25 pages of my online store wwebsite is on vacation until Monday. So I guess this is another pending days to finish my online store website. But that's okey because I also need to do a lot of work on my products. I was able to create some personalized images for some of my products. I also need to make some conditions to be installed on the software regarding the shipping policy from UPS Canada.

Arggg, a lot of work but I am trying to keep positive about. I don't want to rush things and end up on a big mess. I want to take time on this since I am still working on a lot of thing. For the meantime, I want to have fun playing with my beauty products. I love my mineral makeup. It's so perfect for my sensitive oily skin. I will posting some of the images that I finished one day at a time on my Embracing Health For Life blog domain..... Merry Christmas to all!!

Divided Time

I just received the ingredients that I am waiting imported from USA.I am so happy to get it and I started experimenting on the colors. I am having so much fun doing this and I am glad that I am off from work until January 4 and I will be able to spend more time on my products.

However I feel a bit guilty for not being able to do my regular blogging routine. My love for blogging is now divided and how I wish to be able to do one and the other without having to neglect any. But unfortunately, my time is very limited. I will try to finish everything that I needed to accomplished with regards to my products and my online store website so I can set my schedule for each.

Snowing Hard

Cheap High Quality Products

I am addicted to the products I am going to sell on my online store. I love my products and I keep using it for me and my family. I can't wait to sell it and promote it all on all of my blogs.

Once the programmer has resolved the issue on Canada UPS integration and finished with the first 25 pages of my website, I will be adding more products on my online store. I only put some of the basic beauty products.

I love those natural skin care products and the price is very affordable. I sometimes can't believe how much I am saving. I sometimes can't beleive that with this cheap price, I will be able to sell high quality natural beauty products.

Canada UPS Website Integration

I feel somewhat disappointed again because my website programmer said that the software do not support Canada UPS. Well, it doesn't make any sense!! Why will they market their service in Canada and other countries if the software is limited only for USA online store owners?

I registered with Canada UPS, and there is some installation needed for Canada UPS shipping rates to be integrated on my Online Store website. There are some technical issues that my website programmer needed to resolve before it can be integrated on my online store website. I am waiting for the website programmer to contact me to clear this things up.

UPS Supply and Delivery

UPS customer service called me a minute ago and asking me to register the method of payment for my shipping. I told them that when my online store is ready, I will complete the form and send it to them. I cannot open the file, so I replied to their email to asked for the URL of the method of payment form registration.

I also asked them how much will it cost for the packaging supply that I will use for shipping my products, and they said that it's all FREE!! All I have to do is contact Canada UPS and they will send me the supply that I need for shipping my products. They will pick it up on my place and send it to whoever ordered my products. This is sooooo cool!!

Student Houses In Leeds

It's not just product that you can offer on the internet. You can also offer services by building a website that provide services to different level of lifestyle. If you have a business and have not created a website to market your business, better think twice because you will be missing a lot of prospective customers for your business from the internet.

Take a look at this website that offers student houses in leeds. Internet is an excellent place to let the world know what you can offer. Pickard’s provide exceptional homes for tenants. They were voted as number 1 UK's student landlord in Leeds.

Giving Them The Chance

I will give OnlineStores.com's programming department a chance to do my website. The first website programmer who was assigned to do the first 25 pages of my website sucks, so I requested for another website programmer. So a new website programmer called me the other day and asking me on what do I want to see on my website. I told her, I would like to do it myself because they keep me waiting and not answering my emails. She emailed me again today to let me know that she is still willing to do my website, so just let her know if I change my mind. So now I am working on the descriptions of all the products and everything that I am expecting to see on my website.

Free Samples

I am finally done on my blog hopping. I am supposed to spend one hour navigating my online store software but I have to go to my dentist for dental cleaning. I need to be familiar with the software so I can easily update my online storefront whenever I have to add new product.

One of my online buddies was asking me for free sample of my products. Haahahaha, she read my mind,.. yeah I will be giving away free samples everytime I launch new product on my online store. I will also give away free samples on the launching day of my online store. So watch out for it... However, you have to pay for the shipping and handling. I will try to find out the price for International shipping before I launch my online store.

Sunday Bible Message- The Proclamation of John the Baptist

Mark 1:1-8
The Proclamation of Jhon the Baptist

The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
As it is written in the prophet Isaiah,
See, I am sedning my messager
ahead of you,
you will prepare your way;
the voice of one crying out in the
Prepare the way of the Lord,
make his path staright"

John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And people from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John was clothed with camel's hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate Jocusts and wild honey. He proclaimed, "The one who is more powerful that I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals. I have baptized you with water; buy he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit'.

Working On One Product

Waaaa, it is so freaking hard and confusing to build an online store website. But I am glad that I was able to make some of the pages. I need to finish the About me, Contact Info, Shipping Terms and condition. I will try my best to finish this and start focusing on one product so I can launch the website on the internet.

Right now, I am presently working on Natural Facial Mask that I have been using. I am trying to finish the images and description of the different types of Natural Facial Mask and upload it on my online store then start working on the prices. Once I finish this I will pay the domain and start selling on ebay or kijiji. The price is very cheap and I am sure a lot will be happy about the quality. My kids have been using it and it is very gentle on the skin. I hope to launch my website before the end of the year.

Online Store PrintScreen

I am pissed with the website programming department where I purchase the software. It's taking forever for them to start my online store website so I decided to start doing it myself. I might be having one online store right now and focus on my product instead. I dont care if it will sell good or not but I am happy with my product and I will be using it for myself and my family.

Anyway, here is the printscreen of my homepage... As you see, there are still a lot of work to do so this is not yet live on the internet. I will be working on this site one day at a time and at the same time working on my product. But right now, I want to show how my website will look like,

Recipe Book of My Products

I got the recipe book for some of the products that will be included on my second online store. I started reading the first few pages and it's an awesome book. I will see if I can start doing my first product this week and order some of the ingredients. I am so excited to make all the products on the recipe book and try it all. But as I have been always saying, my time is very limited.

I am so curious to try the facial mask recipe for oily skin and see how it feels. I might buy the car essential oil diffuser and some of the essential oils to use at home. I am so interested to try doing the healing bath recipe. I love pampering myself during the weekend that's why I love all the products that will appear on my second online store.

Products That I will Sell

I already placed an international order for the starter kit ingredients and equipment that I will need to start making my own product. Doing the product is easy however, I need to experiment the colors that I want. I am so excited to do it so I payed a special delivery. I will receive it within 6 to 10 days. I ordered only those ingredients that I can't find a supplier in Canada.

Tomorrow, I will pick up the book that I ordered to my supplier here in Canada ( about 15 minutes away form our house). So I can start learning some of the products that I will include on the my second online store. I am more excited to sell the product of my second online store because this is what I really want personally. Me and my family will be using it so I don't mind if it will sell good or not.

The first few products that will appear on my second online store are mostly for my skin type and my personal choice, because I will be creating it for myself FIRST. Then slowly start adding for other skin type. Once I am done making my first product, I will start building the website and slowly add products. Once I completed one set of beauty product category, I will start working on it's marketing strategy that I learned from the seminar.

Since it will take a while to learn the process of creating my own product and complete a set of product category, I though I can start from dropshipping program to start with, on my first online store. This way, I will learn how things go in dropshipping program. I will be working on marketing my first online store during my Christmas vacation while I am learning and completing the product category for my second online store. If my first online store won't work in six months, I will shut it down and concentrate on my own product.
