Join me for this years Ultimate Blog Party!


Ocean Mist Bath Gift SetHi Everyone, we are participating in this year's Ultimate Blog Party! I hope you join us! My name is Anna Pietrocola and I am the founder of SpaGlo® Beauty a Naturally Based, Eco-friendly skin care and cosmetic line of products. We carry a complete line of skin care with products from acne control to anti-aging and everything in between. We also offer an all natural line of mineral makeup. All our products are spa quality formulas and have no parabens, formaldehyde, toluene or phthalates and are packaged in recyclable & compostable plastics and paper. Our mission is to provide high quality, eco-friendly spa products at affordable prices.

I am the mom of a wonderful high functioning autistic child and I started my business after being laid off from working for a Health & Beauty company for 16 years. I have always loved cosmetics and skin care and it has always been my dream to develop my own brand, so when I was laid off, I found it was the perfect opportunity to give it a shot and it also gave me the flexibility to be around more for my son. It has not been easy but I have stuck with it and trying to expand.


We will be giving away one of our beautiful handcrafted 5 piece Ocean Mist Bath Sets. So be sure to submit your prize entry at http://www.5minutesformom.com/ultimate-blog-party-2014prize-page-50-99/. Please Like our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/spaglo.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I love that you started your own business. That's awesome!

Kaye Swain said...

Thanks for your lovely visit to KayeSwain.com - and how exciting to be starting a new business. Enjoy!

Heather said...

I guess you can honestly say "when one door closes...another door opens." How awesome that you were able to start your own business. I used to own a salon and day spa and miss it immensely. I love great products, and I'm so proud of you for taking the leap! Congratulations, and thank you for stopping by my blog for #UBP2014

Heather said...

Yes Anna...amazing that you were able to start your own business through it all! I know April is Autism awareness month too! My best friend's daughter is also autistic. Good luck on your new venture...that is so wonderful!

Diahana Barnes said...

Hi Anna - I love your story and I can't wait to scope out your amazing products. Hugs to you and thanks for the inspiration!

Wendy Orman said...

Anna...I came exploring after I received a comment from you on my blog, Where Everyone Knows...It's Wendy, through UBP14. You have an interesting and amazing story. This is high-stakes testing time at school, so things are very busy at the moment. Once things settle down a bit, I plan to give your skincare/cosmetic line a closer look. Hope you're enjoying UBP14.

Kelly said...

Love your story Anna - I'm always blown away by women who dare to think different, follow their dreams and take action!

Hi, this is Lizzie from Boogers are Yucky. I had to laugh when I saw that photo of Kim with the sunburn. I have raccoon eyes just like that from a recent trip to Florida!

Hi Anna, it's lovely to 'meet' you via #UBP14 :-) Thank you for visiting me. I'm following you on G+ now. Unfortunately the link you gave me to your FB page didn't work but I will try to find you there too. I love beauty and skin care too and I look forward to reading more of your blog!

Best of luck with your business, and with your spectrum child. You are one great mama; it's been a pleasure to "meet" you thanks to #UBP14!

Organized Island said...

Hi! Thanks for finding me at the UBP14! How exciting that you have your own business! Love to see people working for themselves. Nice to meet you!

Beth Green said...

coming from UBP14! What a great attitude after being laid off- to shoot for your dreams!! I wish you the best of luck with your business!

Hey Anna,

I am stopping by from #UBP14. I enjoyed reading your blog. Working with Autistic kids can be difficult sometimes, let alone running your own business. Best of luck to you. I enjoy your helpful posts of Facebook too. As a business person, I wanted to pass on this helpful website to you to help you learn and expand. I do not get paid by them, I just want people to know about it because it has helped me so much. It is www.creativelive.com. It has many business webinars on which are FREE to watch when they first air, but after that you have to pay for them. Just check it out. I just wanted to give you some value back, as a thank you for commenting on one of our blogs. Thank you.

Congratulations! Sometimes when one door closes another one opens wonderfully!

Hi Anna!

You have a great site, and I love the idea of your product line - it sounds wonderful. I'm sorry it took so long to follow up with you... you so graciously stopped by my blog during #UBP14, but I got sick that week!

Wishing you all the best on this venture - you are an inspiration to all women to pursue their dreams! I'll be sure to like your FB page, too. :)
