Not long ago I was given a very sweet honor of being nominated for TWO blog awards!!! I am posting today to let you know I, in fact was awarded them BOTH!!! YEAH ME!!! and Yeah to my little blog that could…

Since the very end of February I have been slowly adding posts and gaining readers and my little blog that started out with one amazing persons encouragement (acknowledgments will follow below) I believed and begin this journey.

As it currently stand as I am writing this blog I have nearly (and I do mean NEARLY) 3500 reads to my blog… I have 20 people that have subscribed to my blog and I know I have others that stop in and read when they can… THANK YOU EACH AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOUR FOR MAKING MY BLOG and me feel so important!! I wasn’t sure where and what I’d do in a couple months… but… It’s going strong and I am overwhelmed with the readers that I have collected from ALL OVER THE WORLD!

Places like Australia, Canada, the United States (obviously… lol), England, India, China, Japan, Germany, Romania, Dubai, Africa, Russia… and the list goes on and on… I am always wearing a smile seeing where all my amazing readers are from!!! It truly satisfaction and an award just knowing so many people are actually reading my blog!

Red Lipstick??? PART II (the results)


April 15, 2012

Hello ALL!!!

First… and foremost thank you all for taking the time and reading my previous post regarding my so called fear complex regarding red lipstick… just to let you all know… said fear… still there… but much more under control and I have found the way and was able to successfully dive in and I think I found decent results… I have shared a couple photos below with said lipstick… I think it turned out pretty well!

I greatly appreciated everyone that gave me insights and gave me hope that I could in fact do this.  Heck just by reading my post… it made me feel better.  I am sure some of you got a good chuckle… but… I still wonder how many of you ladies also have a little contempt or potential fear with regards to RED LIPSTICK too? Perhaps my post will help and afford you the embarrassment of having to ask for help in the near future?

regardless… I just wanted to follow up and say a great big HUGE thank you and send my appreciation out to you all for reading, liking and posting to my blog.  I really like having you all take the time to do so… it means a great deal and I hope to always make this blog helpful, worthwhile or at least entertaining!

Here’s wishing you all a great start to a new week! CHEERS!

Happy GIRL…. giving back some shout outs!

Dribble-Drabble for March 16, 2012

First, I want to give a shout out: Today, 9 years ago I gave birth to my amazing, beautiful, miracle… my daughter Sierra Rose…  I love you so very much and I am so extremely happy and proud to be your mommy!!

Okay… today was a great day and I am giving shout outs… I was busy in the middle of my day at work… in the mall threading eyebrows and facial hairs on a LOT of people today… was a very busy – steady day, which I LOVE! Makes my days quick and that is something that definitely makes a happy Jamie! 🙂

A client, new came to me today, she sat in my chair.  We started with the introductions, finding out this was indeed her first time threading, she explained she was new to the area and had a recent bad experience with someone that waxed her badly.  She had been told about threading and was curious, so she went to her computer and did some research.  Saying she “Google’d” threading and found a web site, which gave her details.  She went on to explain that she found that the blog she was using, in fact said that she could get threading done at this mall, and the girl that created said blog worked at this location and also had a shop in Woodland.  My heart leapt with happiness and excitement!!! I was BEYOND THRILLED!!! I smiled so happily and introduced myself as “the girl that was the creator of said blog”. I was so excited and happy that someone really utilized the blog and found it useful and I actually met someone that found it online!!  I told her so and I hope she does realize this fact! I truly wanted and hoped I could meet someone that would find it useful and then follow through with finding me or someone that they could trust and enjoy a new technique as she did.

Of course I was excited and beyond speechless… but I had a job to do… and I was a tiny bit freaked out that with my luck… (LOL) I would muck something up! But, with the gracefulness I had in me I managed to do a great job for her… and she seemed quite pleased and happy with the experience with the finished results!

So I am not publishing her name… Privacy reasons.  BUT, if you happen to stumble upon this post in my blog… thank you from the bottom of my heart!  You are exactly why I wanted and felt passionate about creating this blog/web site.  I wanted and had hoped it would follow through and have a chain effect so to speak… and it did.  I am thrilled!!!

The rest of my day was also amazing… I had so many happy clients.  In fact one lady… I felt considerable compassion for and a little upset that she was lied to… she had visited us prior and apparently at this visit the person that did the threading job on her cut/ripped her eyelid areas badly.  In stead of apologizing and explaining why this could have happened… she was lied to and told it was the threads fault.  Let me tell you this up front… regardless of said thread… if you are aware of a few small things you can prevent what happened this this client.  We were a bit slower, I had her hold her skin a bit tighter and we moved a bit more along the brow line with her hands/fingers to make sure and prevent her skin from being damaged.  Even if your skin is lacking elasticity (and sadly, this will happen to ALL of us as we age, just depends on how well we take care of our skin… depends on how much strength your skin maintains) she was surprised how easy we managed to get through this task and she also commented that she was extremely pleased, happy with the fact that I was honest and explained why this could have happened to her.  She walked away with freshly threaded, clean and injury free when all was said and done.

Then towards the end of my shift… I was inundated with people that only wanted me… in fact I had a small waiting list for people just wanting me… what an EGO boost to my head!!! LOL!!! I does a girl happy to know I can make so many people happy and that they want to work with me… and feel confident and trust in my abilities.  I want to always give 110% to every single person that sits in my chair and I hope I continue to always make happy clients/customers!

Thank you to everyone that made my Friday so special… all my clients that came back just for me… and even the ones that refused to remain for the other lady (which is also VERY good)…


THANK YOU each and every person that takes the time to ready my blog… I truly appreciate every one of you… and I hope I can continue to aspire to do better and keep making you all happy with my abilities and my blog as well!!

Happy Friday!!

Work tomorrow until 2:30, then to my daughters big 9th birthday bash!!!
