Well to say it's been a while since my last blog post would be stating the obvious. I miss you guys!!
June and July kicked my butt! I had six weddings in June alone, and worked overtime in the salon, traveled to see Sammy, and the blog just naturally fell to the back burner.
As I gear up for August, I'm implementing healthy changes. I'm excited to say that I will no longer be working more than 40 hours in the salon. Between weddings and the salon, I have been logging in 60-80 hours a week, and though I LOVE my job, with it comes physical stress. That physical stress has left me waking up in tears from joint pain, and with little to no time left over to fit in exercise.
It's time to make myself a priority. I don't want to get burnt out, I want to work as long as it makes me happy, and I doubt that time will ever run out, IF I take care of myself.
One of the blogging perks, that hasn't slowed down even though I haven't been posting, is smell-good-snail-mail! I am blown away by the generosity of the beauty industry! I've finally taken the time to try out a bajillion products, and would love to share what I think of them with you! But first, I'd love to give you some to try yourself!
I'm psyched for this Beauty Box Giveaway! In it one lucky lady will receive:
- Color WOW Shampoo and Conditioner (HOW have I never tried these products before. Just wait 'til I share they're Root Cover Up with you!)
- Real Chemistry Luminous 3 Minute Peel AND Environmental Rescue Mask (The best face mask I've ever used. Period.)
- Muk Argan Oil Shine Spray (Fancy!)
- Murad Refreshing Cleanser (I'm jealous of whoever wins this.)
- Soften Her Exfoliating Pads (Ingrown hair - beware. These lady exfoliant pads are magic.)
- Aveda Energizing Body Cleanser and Volumizing Tonic (Lovely little travel buddies.)
- Crest 3D Whitening Mouthwash (Fresh breath AND whitening. Double. Whammy.)
Stay tuned for my full reviews and tutorials coming soon!
