I’m here finally! I’ve been away for so long and I apologise, just over a month since I wrote anything. I just had to give myself some breathing space and take a few things off my to do list and damn the consequences, you know what I mean?
In exciting news, I’m showing as being 39 out of 50 of the top beauty blogs worldwide – chuffed! Top 50 Beauty Blogs
Wow, where to begin on updates – I’m sure a lot of you follow my Vlog so will know some of it but since my last diary entry I found out that I have crazy high blood pressure and a subsequent heart problem. I went through an upset then accepting stage, and I also had some horrible side effects from the medication including nausea and insomnia, but thankfully they are almost gone. Even better, I tested my BP yesterday and it is significantly reduced already :0)
On the hubby job front things have not been great. We thought he had a job to start this week, but then it fell through unfortunately, but he does have an interview on Friday morning so there is hope.
As for my business, I’m getting lots of new ideas as the days go on and realising that I need to do more about advertising. One of the things I’m thinking of doing is having sign writing on my car to advertise the photography. I’ve still got my secret beauty product in mind, but I’m having trouble sourcing a reliable seamstress.
Do you remember that I started selling beauty consultations on a website last year? Well, I sold a few, so I’m going to advertise that on this website. There are 3 main types of consults and all are £20 – Hair, Skincare, or Makeup. The idea is, for example for a skincare consult, that the client tells me their skin concerns, their budget, and what country they are in, and I give them a list of products that I would recommend for them based on my knowledge and experience. The makeup consult is slightly different in that in can be either that the client tells me their budget and what they’d like to achieve with makeup, or they tell me what makeup they have and I tell them how to use it best, i.e. create several eye looks from a palette.
My absolute dream life would be to make my money from doing these consults combined with photo editing and the occasional photoshoot :0) Oh, and still doing You Tube of course!
Right, I’m off to search for a “Rebounder” workout that I can do later today – part of my new healthier lifestyle plan!
