Haircuts and Facials

Last week was a glorious week for this new momma. Between my husband’s work schedule and baby girl’s sleep schedule, it has been 8 months since I have been to a hair salon. Oh, it has been cut (at a walk-in friendly place that rhymes with Stairmaster) and it has been colored (who knew that “hot roots” meant your hair would turn orange?).

Alas, sleep and work schedules finally aligned and my sweet hair stylist worked me in last minute. I forgot how polished a good haircut can make you feel. It was about d*mn time!

Anyways, I put together a few Rodan+Fields mini-facials to leave for the ladies there. I can’t wait to hear what they think! (Each Mini-Facial contains a sample of the Microdermabrasion Paste, Anti-Age Night Renewing Serum and Lip Renewing Serum.)

Until then, I’ll be enjoying my new do.

Tired of adding to your Beauty Product Graveyard? Rodan and Fields Giveaway!

Beauty Product Graveyard

So if you don’t already know, although I am a crafter by trade I recently started selling Rodan+Fields skincare products. Pregnancy was not nice to my skin and after turning thirty I decided I needed a good skincare routine. But where to start?

I already had a bin full of half-used beauty & skincare products sitting in the closet. (see above photo!)

The dreaded beauty product graveyard.

The one we all bury deep in a closet or drawer.

I have wasted so much money trying to buy the “cheaper” product. Which by the way at $20+ a bottle, is NOT cheap to NOT work! I’ve looked at department store, beauty store or drug store shelves and played a game of eenie-meenie-minie-moe. They all promise the same thing and I was OVER IT!

Rodan and Fields

A friend of mine had just started selling Rodan+Fields skincare products and sent me a sample. And seriously, I loved it so much I immediately got online and checked out the company. She had me hooked.

I learned that Rodan+Fields was developed by the creators of ProActiv. I looked at TONS of before and afters. And after a little more research and a million questions later, I was not only a customer, but I was on board as a consultant.

Rodan Fields

For me it took the guesswork out of skincare. No more staring at aisles and aisles of products. And I knew that if it didn’t work, even after 60 days I could simply return it.

As nerdy as it is, I now look forward to my skincare routine. Where I used to dread washing my face before bed, I’m actually excited to! A little dorky? Probably.

So … here’s the good part, I want to share with you!

Taking Care of Business

Taking Care of Business

My new business cards & getting samples in the mail!

I’ve recently embarked on a new venture that has my wheels turning and I’m loving every minute of it! Ever since I signed on board to be a Rodan+Fields consultant, I’ve hit the ground running. My marketing, design and PR background has kicked into gear and I’ve been using my brain in a way that I haven’t in a while. And I like it.

After having Clementine my skin was all out of wack. And now that I’m 30, I was ready to start looking for an anti-aging skincare routine but did not know where to begin. A friend of mine had just signed up to be a Rodan+Fields consultant and was sending out samples of one of their products. After trying it I was hooked. And after looking into the company (from the same creators of ProActiv), I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of.

The prospect of a little extra financial stability appealed to both my husband and I. And while a part-time or full-time job could probably do the same, we are both dedicated to making it possible for me to stay home with our daughter.

Anyways, I’ve had fun getting geeky and learning about QR codes, designing business cards, networking and brainstorming. I’m in the ground phase of this venture, but I know if I do my due diligence and lay the proper groundwork, it will pay off!

Any new ventures got your wheels turning? It’s fun, isn’t it!

DIY Nails: Sophisticated Herringbone

Inspired by this tutorial, I gave it a go. I painted scotch tape and cut them into strips – worked just fine.

Nail Polishes used:

O.P.I. – Barefoot in Barcelona

China Glaze – Flying High

Piggy Polish – Strong Like Jazz

Revlon – Devilish

With all this effort I’ve been putting into manicures, it has me paying close attention to my hands. How the veins are starting to “pop” and a few more freckles are here and there.

I think I know exactly what will be going into my next Rodan + Fields order.
