Catching Up!

It's been awhile and I apologize! I don't know where the time went, but suddenly we are in November, wearing sweaters and pumpkins are everywhere.  The last few months were spent celebrating our fifth anniversary (I still can't believe it's been five years!) and planning new things for 2017. We launched our travel perfume sprays and began thinking of new fragrances to add to the line; we tested a new solid perfume and hope to add it to the Callio family next year. Those are just a few of the things that have kept me busy! I promise to be...

Coming Soon!

It's been a while and I apologize; I have been busy planning new products and getting ready for our 5th anniversary! I can't believe it's been almost 5 years since I left my corporate job and started selling my fragrances on Etsy. I was starting to get off track and get sentimental about the last five years, but I will save that for another day! Today's post is about our new .33 ounce perfume sprays! They are absolutely gorgeous and I think they are a great addition to our line; they will be launching at the beginning of September just...

There are sections devoted to fragrance, makeup,and many others; the pictures alone are amazing. If you are a packaging junkie,...

Building a business

It's the official start of summer and believe it or not, I'm thinking about Christmas:) I'm thinking of marketing campaigns, new gift sets, and new products. I'm wondering when the holiday decorations will start appearing in stores, so photo shoots can be planned.  I'm also looking for your feedback! I would truly appreciate it if you could take a few moments out of your day and answer a few questions for me.  Here's hoping your summer plans are a bit more exciting than mine:) xoxo, Melissa

June is National Adopt A Cat Month

I am a huge animal lover; I am probably also a crazy cat lady, but that is a whole other topic. June is Adopt a Cat Month and I thought I would share a photo of my sweet rescue girl, Callie. We rescued her in 2008 and she is the love of my life:) She is funny, very strict with her schedule and her likes and dislikes; she doesn't like most cat things, once in awhile we will catch her playing with a toy and it is the cutest thing ever.  If you decide to adopt, think about bringing home...
