We're Live!

I'm so excited to launch the Julia Elizabeth Olsson site! I finally have an online store where I can carry and discuss the products in which I believe! I haven't yet had a chance to add all my lines or goodies to the site,  but I wanted to make sure to start with one of my all time favorite skin care lines, Hale & Hush.
