So after spending time hanging out around the house watching the TV show ,”The Carrie Diaries” I got an idea. I had been harassing my dad to get me a new phone without success. So, I decided to make my own.
I have been crushing on anything mint green lately and happened to have a plain mint colored phone case. It was cute when I got it but I was thinking it looked boring. I took my favorite colored nail polish and splashed it all over my plain mint green iPhone case.
I also added a big Z in the middle, gotta have the “Z”, that’s ME!
Here’s a pic of my 5 min creation:
Isn’t it cute? I think it’s really cool and next I’m going to the same to my laptop case. Stay tuned for pictures of that.
What cool things have you made when you were bored or avoiding homework?
September was filled with great news and lots of activity! In one amazing event, Zandra was awarded the $15,000 grand prize at THE PITCH – the award program for local and minority businesses hosted at the Buffalo Museum of Science.
Zandra won the grand prize in the ‘Growth Companies’ category. This category celebrated our commitment to the local community and our delivery of high-quality natural bath and body products for teens. I’m grateful to the judges for believing in the Zandra story. We were singled out from thousands of entries and topped the list in our category. It’s an amazing achievement. And we’re so proud to be recognized for our business growth and passion for philanthropy.
THE PITCH was launched in 2015 by Buffalo’s Mayor Byron Brown, the New York Business Development Corporation, and 43North. Together they have helped give focus to small but growing local businesses. They have also received many event sponsors and thousands of entrants from the general public. The judges worked fantastically hard to nominate the final four applicants in the competition and we couldn’t be more pleased to receive their recognition for our story, our teamwork, and business success.
The Zandra pitch really does show that we are more than soap and lotion!
We want to encourage teens, especially young girls, to be confident in their own skin. And they can learn what beauty is from the inside out by using natural products that promote healthy skin care regimens and daily motivation.
My hope is to also inspire youth to take action and make things happen for themselves and their communities. Local awards give small businesses like Zandra huge opportunities to build our network, gather local support, share ideas and inspire one another.
At the same time, it’s a great opportunity to empower teens, kid CEOs and local decision-makers who are some of our greatest supporters.
There’s more to come from the Zandra team…
