Who am I anymore?!

A lot has happened. A lot is going on. So what better way to procrastinate, let write about it!

We’re moving house, and soon! Do I want to sort through and pack all the things? No! But I have to.

This move is actually a good thing. It’s a massive upgrade for us. I’ll have an office space and won’t have to do my makeup or videos at the dining table anymore!

And I can start implementing all the things I learned at this years PIT Stop Marketing and Media Mavens, held in Melbourne 2 weeks ago.

Now, I can’t share what I learned but I can tell you it’s got the ball rolling for me to grow my business. I’m so lucky we get these trainings from corporate every quarter. They fill my cup and then some! I’m inspired to do all the things. Even get fit.

We made a video during the event for the #GitUpChallenge. I can’t say no to a challenge. I was in the front row dancing my heart out, as I do. On the playback, it opened my eyes. This sounds incredibly vain, but I did not like what I saw of myself. I finally saw myself from a different perspective. I’ll admit, it was hard to handle. Is that what I really look like? Not the person I portray in my selfies at all. I feel like a hypocrite.

Time to challenge myself to change my ways.

There was a makeup training day on Sunday just gone, led by a gorgeous gal I really admire. I was asked beforehand to get up and speak in front of 70 or so people, on a panel about doing the makeup artist certification, SeneBlends. In front of my peers and leaders. I couldn’t say no. I was quite flattered to be asked! Now, I’m terrible at public speaking, but I wasn’t nervous, I just got up there, answered a few questions and felt really good!

Who am I anymore?! I didn’t go completely blank and spoke confidently. Because I love what I do.

I have met so many incredible women along the way these past 21 months that have helped shape me into the person I am in this moment. I want to do the same for others.

…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
