Our Scisters Salon journey has just reached it’s 8th year on October 1st. Say What?! I can’t help but feel overwhelmed with gratitude for the manifestation of this dream. Looking back on those two young ladies, all bright eyed and green, I want to tell them that I am proud of their commitment to keep their hearts in business. I believe it is a key component to our successes.

How to Manifest the Life You Desire

f you are a millennial like us, or have spent any significant amount of time with Melissa and I, you have probably heard the term manifest recently. If not, you may have heard of this concept in the form of quantum physics, from the book The Secret, or the Law of Attraction. The idea, in short, is that the thoughts that you think, create your reality. But it's not so simple as, "I want a pony". Oftentimes, the universe will bring things to you in unexpected ways.

Once Upon a Time.... a Scisters Salon Collection

If you have been a guest for a number of years, you know that we do an annual creative collection. Some years we even manage to squeeze in two. Inspiration for these shoots has ranged the zodiac, goddesses and even aliens. It is a fun way to stretch our creativity as a team and produce a visual collection out of the scope of our everyday work. This year we decided to take on a theme that we have been aspiring to do for years, fairy tales.

Our Love Story

When I first met Easton, I was pretty sure she didn't like me. (She still claims I'm wrong about this). Either way, it wasn't long before we became friends and I realized she was unlike anyone I had met before. Her friendship taught me something about relationships, vulnerability, authenticity and womanhood. I am a better person for knowing her.
