I Read My Youtube Comments

There are those who say you shouldn’t read the comments on your youtube videos.



People can be particularly nasty on the internet. One musician compared the comments on youtube videos to the writing on a bathroom stall.  So, ever since I posted some educational videos on youtube, I’ve been afraid to read the comments. 


In a moment of bravery, I took a look this morning. 


At the risk of being anti-climactic … they were all super nice.  I feel so grateful to be involved in a business that attracts such exceptionally kind customers. Thank you all for being such lovely humans! 


PS... They're not new, but in case you missed them, the videos can be seen here:

Best Masks for Small Faces

Petite Adult Face Masks

If your face is small or narrow, glasses are not the only thing that doesn't fit well.

Most face masks will also be too large. This looks baggy and unattractive. 



These lady lumps are not lovely...



But what’s worse is that they don't work: loosely fitting masks leave gaps around the edges.

This allows airflow and defeats the purpose of wearing a mask.

The good news is that there are plenty of small size face masks for women like us. 



Perfect fit!  What a difference.
