Hi, I’m Alyssa. This blog is the very first step to me following my dream of opening the Chippewa Valley’s first cruelty-free nail salon & boutique.

My mission is to provide a comfortable space where customers don’t have to choose between ethics and a great-looking manicure or clean home. Every product and service provided will be cruelty free!

My ideal location would be either downtown Chippewa Falls, River Prairie in Altoona, or downtown Eau Claire. When you walked in you’d be greeted with a beautiful boutique full of cruelty-free bath, beauty, and home products. The aesthetics would include natural wood, black + white decor, and clean lines.

The nail salon would be in the back with slightly dimmer lighting, comfortable chairs, and again the clean look of black, white, and natural wood.

I hope you will follow me along my journey to get this dream business of mine up and running. Throughout this blog you will come across affiliate links - meaning I may make some money if you purchase products from these links. Every penny earned from this blog will be invested towards opening the salon + boutique.

I don’t have a name for this dream yet, but I’m hoping you can help me find it. Any feedback, advice, and ideas are welcome and appreciated. Simply visit my contact page to submit anything!
