WOOHOOO!!! I am over the moon now as I sit here, sharing my labor of love with you.
Finally, finally, finally, after months of preparation, plenty of hardwork, sleepless nights, and indescribable stress levels, my online beauty boutique is up up up!
Even though I have brazenly inserted the name of the store in the title of this post, I’m gonna still shout with all the air in my lungs:
(*waves hands madly in the air*)
Can you hear me? Can you hear me screeeeaaaammm, with all the love in my heart, that the idea of a store I mysteriously mentioned some months ago has solidified? My dream has finally seen the light of day, presented in the best way my fabulous team and I could manage, with as many brands and products we know you’ll love.
Wanna know how the name came about?
Well, at the start, we came up with some really ridiculous names like makeupdownleftrightcenter, wakeupyourmakeup, dollfromtheskyandsea, pana-doll, doll-mino, and even inapplicable ones such as fivesixseven. HAHAHA!!!
NOOO!!! I wanted a name that would evoke an image, tell a story, or have some meaning or association to makeup and beauty.
Then I thought...... *moment of enlightenment*
I'm a girl, I'm selling makeup to girls, the name should ride along this line.
And just like that, Doll To Doll came to mind. I ran it through friends and this was the name that garnered the highest votes! So it's me (a doll [us, actually. but, anyways]) sharing beautiful and fun makeup with my girl friends (all you dolls)!
(Girl To Girl would seem like a shop selling kids clothing and wouldn't sound half as cute. Heh heh!)
That was in June, and five months on, dolltodoll.com is live.
Today is 20 November 2012 - 20112012. NICE RIGHT!!! I initially wanted 211112 but my parents said 20112012 is a way more auspicious date for store opening after seeking the Chinese calendar. 20112012 looks very good too!
Just so you know, today is a good date for big events such as store openings, weddings, traveling, moving house, building house - basically anything big, new and exciting in your life!
