New Shop Hours

Hello loverlies.

I wanted to extended my biggest thanks to all you ladies of luck who have made Lucky 107 what it is. From the day we opened in November until now, Lucky107 has, essentially, been open 24/7. Meaning from the minute I get up until the time I go to bed, I'm answering emails, packaging, mailing orders, & creating new products - obviously when I can find the time before the kids get up & while they're napping & after they go to bed. However, with this schedule, I am neglecting other things I want to do [ie: finish my sons' scrapbooks]... so, starting today [31march2011], Lucky 107 will only be "open" Monday-Friday. Saturdays & Sundays are going to be family days & "me" days. That's not to say I won't respond to emails or check up on the FanPage... I just won't be processing orders or mailing anything out or creating anything new.

I hope you all can understand. Thank you for your continued support.

Vegan & Cruelty Free... + T.A.T.

ok, I just want to clarify this: to me, vegan & cruelty free are TWO different things. To me, vegan is NO animal products or by products [beeswax & carmine being most common] & cruelty free is not tested on animals. NONE of my products are tested on animals - besides, I don't think my dogs would hold still enough to let me put eyeshadow on them [not that I would anyway!]. I do carry some products that contain carmine & beeswax but am currently looking into vegan options for the beeswax so that vegans may also enjoy our lip glosses, balms, & [coming soon] solid perfumes.

now onto our T.A.T [turn around time]: i strive to keep the t.a.t as short as possible... HOWEVER, being a mom to 2 infants [14m & 2m] & 2 furbabies, in school full time, & having to do the domestics, life tends to get ahead of me sometimes to where the end of the day I'm too tired to sit down in the office & do anything. so, as a general rule, our T.A.T is a week. sometimes shorter but no more.
