Notes from Nini: July 2023

♡ New at With Nini ♡

Usually under this section I talk about new products at With Nini but as a small business that makes everything from scratch, we aren't able to pump out new product each and every month. So instead of hyping up a new product this month, I want to hype up a business milestone. As of July 1st, With Nini has officially started charging taxes woo!

And look, I know, everyone hates paying taxes. Myself included. But, as a business this is very exciting because that means we are growing, big girl moves are happening, hard work is paying off and that's a damn good feeling. We wouldn't have made it here if it weren't for you, so thank you always for the love and support!

♡ Delights in my Life ♡

Experiences: Unintentionally, there has been a lot of quality family time going on over here and I am not mad about it. Back in December, my family and I booked a cottage and the time finally came for us to enjoy it! We hung out, kayaked, played uno, and ate good for an entire weekend. It was a much needed recharge from the day to day hustle.

After that, my in-laws came down for a visit and we got the chance to explore the Canadian Museum of Nature in its entirety. Family is so important to me and I feel so lucky to have two so close to my heart.

Music: Switching out the Podcast category for Music because I cannot get enough of Flo's latest EP. If you don't know who Flo is, let me put you onto them. Flo is a 90's-influenced R&B trio based out of London, England and their vocals are incredible. Take a listen for yourself:

Small Business Love: Ok technically this product is not by a small business but I did purchase it from a small business so we're gonna run with it. Long story short, I found out that I might have become allergic to my go-to sunscreen, forcing me to find an alternative, and my goodness, was this a blessing in disguise.

I went to Terra20 knowing that they would have limited ingredients and natural options for me and after reading many reviews, I left with Attitude's Tinted Mineral Sunscreen A.K.A. the best sunscreen I've ever used in my life. It's lightweight, easy to spread, does not leave a white residue on my tan skin, and most importantly: does not irritate my skin!

That's all for this month's check-in! Nothing major but still worth sharing. Keep cool and stay hydrated friends!
