Happy Labor(less) Day!

Happy Labor(less) Day!

At a time of uncertainties, take the day to labor less and think on all things good.

It's been a long time since I took to the computer to add a blog post to our wonderful website. My web-team subtly brings it up from time to time, my response being "I'll get to it, promise!". Business ownership is a 24/7 job, it's hard to step away from it, especially with growth. I dare not complain, just stating a fact, for the bible clearly says, "to who much if given, much is required" and with the launch of our website, along with day-to-day boutique operations, much is required. But at some point, you have to labor(less).


Recently, my family and I enjoyed a relaxing time in Jamaica. Near perfect weather, a beautiful resort, Jamaican royal hospitality, great food, and the love of family was just the escape I needed. I won't say that I didn't think about business, but pulling away, and leaving it in very capable hands made it a passing thought.


So, on this Labor Day I admonish you to think a little less about laboring and more about taking great care of yourself, pulling away a bit, enjoying a vacation or staycation all while planning to work smarter, not harder.


I love the picture featured in this post, it's actually my mom in the pool. She couldn't look more peaceful, at rest, and fashionably cool in the heat of Jamaica!


Happy Labor(less) Day!

    I enjoyed shopping in the parking lot. I wear 22-24. I put $100.00 in my pocket for shopping. I came home with 3 outfits and a jacket. I had $7.00 change. I enjoy dressing differently and yet completely comfortable. Essential Elements helps me to be me. Thank you

    MEL~ so glad I "discovered" you during the summer!! You are carrying some of my fave designers and to be able to support a black-owned business in one of my fave cities is a HUGE plus!! I must add that while your models are beautiful, Deidra is simply gorgeous - gorgeous color, beautiful clear skin, LOVE her hair which can probably be worn natural as well (?), her smile almost sells the products - I could go broke. AND, you're selling pieces of Alembika I haven't seen on other sites. I must consult my piggy bank but may have to wait for end of year sales. Waiting for Grizas, Moyoru (you're SURE you can't find that cream colored asymmetrical jacket for me, pul-eeeze?), Avivit.... HA!! Jamaica sure revved up YOUR engines!! Glad you took a vaca - we're all benefitting. Take good care of yourself. Frances Moseley ~ Boston
