What an absolute whirlwind this last year has been, am I right??! We’ve all gone through tons of changes recently and I haven’t really talked about my life in general since 2019, so I figured it’s time for an update! Business has been absolutely booming which is SOOO awesome and I feel like I talk about it allll the time to keep you guys in the loop! Now, I want to go over a few things in my personal life to give you a little insight into that side too!
For those of you that follow me on Instagram, you probably already know, but I got a new dog! My not so itty bitty household now has 5 pets. My new baby boy’s name is Bane, he’s an all black German Shepherd, and he started training this month!! He gets along so well with all of the other pets, especially Besha! Bane was the absolute best addition, and I truly feel like our little family is complete now!
As you know, I LOVE to stay on top of my education, specifically in hair and makeup. I took one makeup class earlier this year, and I have another next month! I can’t wait to refine some more makeup techniques so I can help you feel more comfortable with how you look! I’m a huge fan of natural glam looks, because I feel like they really just enhance your natural beauty! I can’t wait to specialize in these looks, just for you!
I plan on taking a few hairstyling classes and hair color classes to perfect my craft in the hair world! Also, I am working on a new certification for hair treatments and will be sharing more information on that soon, so stay tuned!!!
You know when you get to make that purchase that makes you really feel like an adult?? Well I am pumped to introduce you to Dottie, the Itty Bitty Mobile!! Dottie is my brand new red Toyota Venza (well she is a 2015, but she is new to me so that counts as new right??!!!). I’ve never bought a new car before so this was a huge deal to me! It was totally time to though! I travel so much for work and am constantly dragging around all of my tools for hair and makeup. In my time off, I usually have the dogs in tow! It was totally necessary and I am over the moon about all of the awesome features and honestly just the extra room!!!
Do you know what a capsule wardrobe is? A capsule wardrobe is a collection of classic and essential pieces that can be mixed and matched over time! I’ve worked suuuper hard this past year to create a capsule wardrobe and be more intentional about the clothes that I purchase. I got rid of about 75% of my clothes, donating them to the Samaritan House. Purging your closet doesn’t have to be as overwhelming as it sounds! If you have multiple clothing items that can only be worn with one outfit, it needs to go! This is what helped me, and I can’t tell you how satisfying it felt to clear out my closet and give back to a wonderful organization!
My goal is to now shop for more sustainable pieces and just overall be more conscious of the impact that I make on the environment. I’ve also found that a capsule wardrobe makes me feel way more organized which is a total plus and so beneficial for my mental health! Most of my new pieces are from Shopcontravan, which you can always pop by in the salon to check out!
I told you a lot has happened!! I’m super grateful for all of the changes and blessings that I’ve seen recently. I can’t wait to see what the rest of this year brings!
