Who Doesn’t Have A Sweet Tooth?

believe most nutritionists are correct that breakfast is the most important meal, and my weakness is a caramel macchiato, no foam with whip cream, extra caramel, and a cheese danish. I’m now on a fitness goal and still need to lose 20 pounds by December. Having a healthy diet is essential and there is nothing wrong with a sweet treat every now and then. And this is where Heavenly Hosts Sweets and Treats has cornered the market in San Diego.
Who doesn’t love candy? I can remember my father giving me a dollar and the excitement of what I could do with it. Back then I could get some now & laters, chick-O-stick, Hershey bar, and still, have enough for one game of donkey kong. Do you remember that feeling that candy gave you, whether it was for good behavior in school or just to satisfy your sweet tooth we all love candy? Heavenly Host brings back all those childhood memories of a carefree life, that summer where you and your bestie went swimming every day. The fun times of walking home from school or riding the school bus and the laughter of a time long past. If you want to treat yourself to a wonderful experience I recommend you contact Shaunnie Lewis owner of Heavenly Hosts Sweets and Treats.

Lion Sight: Hello Ms. Lewis
Shaunnie: Hi, Mr. Gordon

Lion Sight: How long have you been in business?
Shaunnie: Heavenly Host was established in 2010.

Lion Sight: How did you come up with the name heavenly host?
Shaunnie: The name Heavenly Hosts was given to me by God. Much prayer went into finding a name that represented the relationship I have with Him and His true presence in this endeavor.

Lion Sight: What’s the best part of being a business owner?

Shaunnie:The best part of being a business owner is being able to set my own schedule. I am a single mother juggling family life and business life. Setting a calendar and not punching a clock is truly the best blessing in being a business owner for me.

Lion Sight: What keeps you motivated?

Shaunnie: I am motivated by the visions God constantly feeds me for design and His promises for success that are constantly confirmed.

Lion Sight: Why are you choosing to do what you’re doing?
Shaunnie: I choose to do what I am doing because it is what God has gifted me to do. When I stay in my lane, which is His lane, I succeed. There’s nothing greater than getting to show Him off! These gifts and talents are God-given and I dare not sit on them or choose another way.

Lion Sight: What was your biggest mistake and how did you handle it?
Shaunnie: I’m certain I haven’t made my biggest mistake in business yet, but what I’ve done more than once is undercharged for the vision set by the client and lost money. Heavenly Hosts aims to please and this mistake has been a loss to Heavenly Hosts. Thank God for being the God of 2nd, 3rd & 1,000,000th chances! I have learned to seek wisdom in all I quote & in all I deliver.

Lion Sight: What is the relationship between what you’re doing this year in your business and last year?
Shaunnie: I have expanded the business to vending this year. It has helped to greater expose Heavenly Hosts to a much larger audience.

Lion Sight: Give an example of a time when you exceeded expectations.
Shaunnie: Heavenly Hosts seeks to exceed the expectations of the client in every endeavor, large or small. 1 example: A few months ago I had a client with a very small budget decorating a party of #60. With what they gave, they expected table decor only. I was able to deliver and set up table decor, custom personalized party favors for each guest & a ‘selfie’ photo station with props, backdrop and custom frame. The customer was well-pleased and grateful. It doesn’t take a lot to have a lot!

Lion Sight: Why should someone hire you?

Shaunnie: Someone who wants the best should hire the best! My designs come straight from Him and there is no one greater. If the client wants original, polished and professional designs, HEAVENLY HOSTS is definitely the company to call!

Lion Sight: Where do you see yourself in the next two to three years?

Shaunnie: In the next 2 years HH will continue vending, decorating/designing events, simply getting our name out to the public. By year 3, it is our desire to open up a storefront full of baskets, sweet treats & gifts for all occasions.

Balmain

When you hear the name “Balmain” you think more than Kim K. But it speaks style, sophistication, glamor, old Hollywood, and lots of color. I was unaware of the Balmain line of clothing until a designer friend of mine (Thirty1fashions) kept talking about how great his style was and the use of color and different fabrics. Here is a little history about the Balmain name, thanks Wikipedia.

In the late 1930s, he served in the French air force and the army pioneer corps. After peace was declared, he worked at Lucien Lelong and opened his own fashion house under his name. He released his first collection in 1945 and his first fragrance in 1949. While at Lelong, he met Christian Dior, a designer who would play a huge role in Balmain’s career and the postwar fashion industry in general.

Now I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

Fashion Week San Diego 2016

Better Late Than Never

Yes, I know this post is really late but it’s here now. Fashion Week San Diego held it’s annual spring fashion show at Harrah’s Casino in Valley Center and as usual we had a great time. Fashion Week San Diego wrapped up several months ago, but great style never really leaves San Diego. So many independent fashion designers, amid the design centers, and school of fashion are here in this great city. On an average day, the fashions on its residents are enviably cool in a kicked-back southern California way. But when the fashion week descends on this city, it makes for serious street-style spotting.
