Starting new things can be exciting, scary, challenging, empowering, daunting + liberating. How do I know? Because I AM starting something new + am experiencing all of the feelings above. The thing that prevails is Faith. Yep, feelings often change, but my Faith remains consistent + it’s what I hold on to.
I AM stepping out on Faith in launching “Making It with Celeste.” Making It with Celeste is the training, teaching + DIY part of J. Lexi. Making It with Celeste, I will offer classes + facilitate training in making soap, spa products, body butters + oils using the J. Lexi method, which will include fermented foods, probiotic-derived ingredients + other underused botanicals, superfoods, amino acids + other that are usually not included in DIY classes.
In addition to our unique classes, I will introduce you to other experts in the fields of perfume making, essential oil blending, jewelry making, African dance, yoga, candle making, spoken word + other creative expressions, where you will have hands-on-training. All of our DIY classes will focus on beautifying, altering the appearance, increasing attractiveness + creating an environment of skin health + well-being.The mission of Making It with Celeste is to build a creative community where we will socialize, network, laugh, learn some stuff, move our bodies, use our hands + think outside the box . . . who knows, we might even shed some tears. In the tradition of J. Lexi, Making It with Celeste will take a holistic (mind, body, emotion + Spiritual) approach to beauty, health + wellness.
I AM very excited! Our first Making It with Celeste class, Probiotic Spa Products, will be on Saturday, July 29 from 12 to 4p in Orange, New Jersey. In the Probiotic Spa Products class, I will have a variety of fermented fruits + veggies to add to your herbal bath tea, body scrub, bath soak, bath salts +/or bath flowers. Space is limited + registration is required.

The other challenging, exciting, nerve-wracking + doable thing, was The Start Something Challenge 2017. I entered J. Lexi into this social media-driven Challenge to win the Grand Prize of a $10k business grant.
Winning the grant will enable me to streamline J. Lexi‘s manufacturing + increase brand awareness.
