Indulge in a cupcake, pamper yourself, wine and dine, shop a little, capture the moment on film or get active. No matter your preference, Flavor Cupcakery presents "It's a Flavorful Life," a week-long event, wrapping up Saturday, designed to encourage sweet indulgence by bringing special deals to customers through the collaboration of Harford County small businesses.

Shelley Stannard, owner of Flavor Cupcakery, champions the extra touch small business brings to its customers by collaborating with other local business owners to encourage a spirit of trying new "flavors" in life with exclusive deals and giveaways – for one week only – providing customers an opening to try a variety of services focused on mind, body and spirit.

It's a Flavorful Life" began Monday and will wrap up Saturday with deals and discounts across Bel Air. A portion of the proceeds from the week will be donated to benefit wounded veterans.

"Rooted in giving back to those who give so much to us, this week brings small businesses together to benefit the community-at-large for a greater purpose. Just because it's summer and we're busy with vacationing and to-do lists we shouldn't forget the spirit of giving back and supporting each other. That's exactly what Flavor Cupcakery is doing through 'It's a Flavorful Life,'" organizers said.
