Coffee goes here

I’m so spoiled. There’s a new cafe that’s just opened in my neighbourhood. They know my name. I’m okay with this, since I’ll be working out of there some days. And what better day for me to go and have a couple in quick succession than a day where I woke up with my sick 5 year old at 4am.

Well, it’s a new day, new week, new month. And for SeneGence, a new year! Yes, this marks the beginning for us. New goals to get set, new opportunities.

10 days till I leave for Brisbane for Seminar! It’s the 20th anniversary celebration and it’s going to be huge! I’ll be sharing all the news and happenings on Facebook and on Instagram (go follow me…now!)

Then when I get back, I’ll be hard at work putting everything I learn into place, work on my SeneBlends makeovers, and playing makeup and skincare with y’all.

I never used to be goal oriented. Now I find that I am and it’s invigorating! It gives me hope 💞

Are you goal oriented? What drives you? What sparks your joy? (I had to throw that in there 😜)

It me

So I’ve been up to a bit of late and I’m not slowing down! This is a good thing.

I’ve met some lovely people through the market I did late February. I plan to return to the A Plus Market in May!

I’ve been doing makeovers on others and myself. I completed a challenge for a 70s glam rock Debbie Harry inspired look as voted by my Facebook group.

I did this live which is a challenge in and of itself!

I then followed up with a more French inspired look for the school fair committee meeting I had that evening haha

More about the school fair later.

I recently got my new glasses that I really need to wear around the house, especially when reading and writing. Thank you to the lovelies at Oscar Wylee for their help.

I had a much needed haircut with my awesome stylist. She was incredibly patient as I had to bring my girls with me, making it the least relaxing appointment I’ve had for a very long time!

I’ve been selfie heavy of late…really when am I not selfie heavy? But I’ve been feeling fierce! Bright colours, reflecting how I feel. That’s what I love about makeup!

My daughters see my confidence and this gives them confidence, so I keep it up and keep it going. I do this for them. They are my life. But I also so them it’s okay to cry, to have emotions. To be human. We work together and work through it if something is troubling them.

I was inspired by Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and her eye makeup on the cover of EW. So 90s I love it! I will probably take my girls to see Captain Marvel after I see it this week. If I can squeeze in the time.

I am almost completely booked up for March. I have a demo, makeovers, a fete, and more. I can fit more in I think but I mustn’t forget to take time for myself.

Detox and moisturizing mask time!

April is shaping up to be a huge month with the SeneGence 20th anniversary seminar in Brisbane that I’ll be attending. To say I’m excited is an understatement 😆 My favourite speaker/coach is coming from the USA and I’m beside myself!

There are dresses to try on today which will be fun, coffee to consume, and more to plan and do.

Till next time 💋

…And I’m back

Busy doesn’t even start to explain how I’ve been.

My girls are both now at school, I’ve been busy working (but not writing), running all over town for various things, family emergencies being dealt with, school committee meetings, plus getting ready for my market this weekend.

I’m exhausted! I’m running on adrenaline and coffee. But I persist. Good lord, I persist!

I’m so excited for my first market this Sunday! If you’re in Melbourne, come on down and check out all the new and preloved sized 16+ clothing and accessories from the stall holders at the A Plus Market and don’t forget to come by and see me and say hi! 10am to 2pm, Coburg Town Hall. Be there!

I recently ran a poll in my facebook group with the option of selecting a decade to do a makeover look from the 1920s to the 2000s. The 1950s narrowly won. Not so secretly, I’m glad it won because it’s my favourite look. I created the look live based on Elizabeth Taylor’s signature look. I’ll be running another poll again but have a feeling the 60s or 70s will be wanted. I’m down with that!

I’m powering through my 58 SeneBlends certification makeovers and loving it! I did 4 in one afternoon! It was so much fun!
Yes, 58 makeovers, well, technically, it’s 58 different techniques I have to practice! Once again, if you are in Melbourne, I need your face! Get a couple of girlfriends together, your sister, mum, cousin, whatever, and let’s have some fun! Contact me and let’s book you in.

I have many plans for the year ahead, so much to look forward to and work towards, goals to achieve. A lot of work on personal development, overcoming anxieties and the like to be done, starting immediately. I need to get out of my own way and get to work.
And I need to stop biting my nails. Ew. Stupid anxiety.

I’ll endeavour to post more regularly, even if they’re quick posts with product updates and such! Got to keep y’all in the know, I’ve been neglecting you and for that I am sorry.

I’m sorry

Musings for 2019

A new year, a fabulous you.

You don’t have to be a “new” you.

“Oh, I should lose weight, eat this – not that, join a gym, swear less.” If you do want to do those things; great! Go for it.

But just be your fabulous self. You don’t have to change! Do things that make you invest in yourself! We don’t do enough of that. Take that relaxing bath, have that wine, take that course you’ve been meaning to! Fill your cup!

I aim to do more personal development work, to be a better me if I want to grow more. I’ll do things that fill my cup so I can be a better person all round, hopefully without making people puke at my positivity 😆

What will you do to fill your cup in 2019?

Greetings of the season

In all the overwhelming Christmas Eve preparation that I’m doing, I wanted to hop on quickly and wish you all a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

It’s been an incredible year here of learning and growing, and thank you for all your support!

I aim to lift my writing game in 2019 and to give more, to learn more and to teach more about all the things, not just SeneGence.

Be kind to one another and talk to y’all soon 💋
