The Best is the Worst Thing that Can Happen to the Good December 06 2015, 0 Comments
It's a quiet Sunday in my office. No phones ringing, the internet orders are starting to slow down and I am alone with my thoughts. It's nice.
I heard a quote similar to this in a movies last night, I don't think it's a literal translation from the French but it really made me think. The Best is the Worst Enemy of the Good. It actually took my breath away.
I feel like I am surrounded by a life of looking for The Best, our customers are looking for the Best Gift, I am looking for the Best Life for my children, the Best Restaurant is always out there. We give awards for the Best. LuLu's has had it's Best Year ever but what if next year isn't it's best ?
When did good become not good enough ?
If I spend my time always looking for the best, don't I miss the here and now ?
The thought of being happy in the good and in the moment definitely changed my morning. I went out with my daughter and we bought our first holiday tree together. It isn't the best, but it's good enough and we love it. Tonight we are celebrating Hanukkah with my family. I am working all day , we are going out, it may not be the best meal or the best restaurant but we are together and that is good enough.
I am going to start focusing more on the good enoughs. I am a lucky girl. I have health and love and life and family and friends and they are enough. I am enough. You are enough - let's be enough together.
Wishing Everyone a Good Holiday Season !

From Me to you - My Lovely Friends June 26 2013, 2 Comments
Hi Girls - I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone while I explored my option on moving LuLu's out of Booths Corner. I was really looking to move because I wanted to do a full time store and the store in the shopping center that I really wanted just didn't work out. I would have had to put too much of my personal life on the line in order to secure the space and as you know, I am all about my family. I would never want to do anything to jeopardize what we have worked so hard to have and put our family in a bad situation. It all came down to the lease and it was a lease that our attorney advised us not to sign because if things went badly we could lose our home and to me , that takes all of the fun out of being " LuLu " and made what is a fun and enjoyable business into something scary. So for now, we are staying at Booths Corner - so many good things have been happening - joining Soldsie and becoming the first "C-tailer " in the state of Delaware is rocking and I am so thankful for everyone who has been shopping with us online and in the stores.
Thru the summer you will see some changes at Booths Corner - some weeks we may not be filled to the roof with Fabulousness - that is simply because we are going to attempt to make some changes, some new paint, a little lipstick on the space that has pretty much been as it has been since we opened in 2005.
Thank you so much for supporting me , my family, our little LuLu family while I went thru my options and explored the growth potential but for now, the best decision for me is to just stay put - thank you so much for all of the love
Jill aka LuLu

My Awesome Day with Aveeno March 15 2013, 0 Comments
I have to admit, I am a lucky girl and I truly believe that if you put good things into the universe, the universe takes care of you. That and knowing people in the advertising industry doesn't hurt but again , it's the balance of the universe. When the email for a casting call first came across my desk looking for someone who doesn't have time for dandruff my first thought was - Ugh, I worry about that every time I try to show someone a scarf. Doing what I do, trying on necklaces for my customers I worry about things, my mind wonders are both boobs in my bra ? , do I have spinach in my teeth , do I have flakes. I was shocked when I was chosen to spend the day in New York at the Patrick Melville Salon in Rockafeller Center in New York City. If you know me, you know I spend my time mostly in Delaware but I dabble in the New York life and the Delaware Beach Bum world. I am very thankful for the experience and I hope that everyone who does suffer from Dandruff tries the new Aveeno Nourish Plus Dandruff control shampoo, it really is an amazing product. Here is my diary from behind the scenes and the final video which is now all over the internet. Here is my diary from the day
Meeting up with my little brother ( aka Mr. Single and needs to get married so I can be an Auntie ) who made a lot of this magic happen

Final Look - I had to borrow the scarf from Jeannine from Beauty Sweet Spot

I am so not crafty... February 04 2013, 1 Comment
I will be the first to admit, once something falls outside of the realm of accessorizing. I am useless. I am a decent mother, a good wife but I sure can't cook and I really have no patience when it comes to doing any sort of craft project so I am going to brag a little bit on this one. By no means do I think these are the most amazing home works I have ever seen but believe me, if you saw the pile of ruined styrofoam I bought last summer to make a headboard or the 18 different poorly spray painted woodland creature statues in my garage you would understand my excitement.
First up - I am OBSESSED with the online Photo Editor Pic Monkey - and my Facebook Page for LuLu's has been the benefactor but I thought - hey why not let me try my hand at doing a graphic for my home. I started small. We just are in the final stages of finishing the kids playroom and making it more of a family friendly hang out now that they are older. We painted the walls in something called Eagles Nest, they are warm and rich. I found a close up photo of an old afghan in chervon print online, I played around with the colors and then added text. The first line is my birthday, the second in my husbands, the highlighted date is the day we got married followed by both girls birthdays. I had in printed as a poster at Walgreens for about 5 dollars and found an old frame in the garage - wal lah - instant wall art.
My second big project is that we had these old ugly dark brown bookshelves - I bought some wrapping paper at Marshall's for 3.99 a roll and lined the back of the shelves. I love the look and the update cost me under 8.00 dollars.
