A new business venture…

For so many years I’ve had friends and co-workers try to get me to jump in on businesses like Amway, Mary-Kay, Avon… and I was never interested. The thought of ordering products for someone and then having to deliver it to them never sounded fun to me. It actually sounded like too much work. I vowed to myself that there was no way I would fall into something like no matter how much someone built it up to me, it just didn’t sound fun at all.

I’m super excited to start using this product

My cousin got into Rodan & Fields, I want to say a couple of years ago, and tried to get me to join. I refused for so long, and one day during quarantine she asked me if I wanted to join at that time because she was still making a lot of money even though we all were at home. I said I’d think about it. She sent me the link that evening inviting to a zoom meeting where I could hear some of the stories from those who are selling the products and how they’re making out during quarantine. I could not believe when my cousin shared with everyone that the money she makes from selling this product practically paid for her daughters PUNAHOU tuition. That’s an expensive school… you may have heard of it… Barack Obama?! When I heard that, along with stories of those who actually were able quit their job because they were bringing home more money selling these products and how all the payments and shipments would be taken care of through the company!!!… I was interested.

I guess my cousin felt she had to announce my arrival on board… no pressure at all 😉

So I did it! I bought my business kit and set up my account. I’m going to be real with you all and say that I’ve only tried a few of these products. I also want to say that I will be totally honest in my posts about each product. There have been so many times that I’ve gone on a website and read about a product and bought it only to find it’s crap. I know that every beauty brand will have their good products and not-so-good products. I’m on a mission to find the products that work best for me and my family.

Just to gain your trust a little… I actually worked as a esthetician for about 10 years before having my oldest daughter. Some brands that I’ve worked with, that I hold pretty high up there are… Yon Ka, Aveda and Dermalogica. Working at some popular spas like Abhasa Spa at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and Serenity Spa at the Outrigger Reef, both in Waikiki, I’ve had to attend MANY skin care classes. So yes, skin care has always been really important to me. Because the R&F products are pretty pricey, I want to make sure that I can promote the products that I feel are really worth dishing out your hard earned money for.

Weekend Pics

Not too much happened this weekend. On Friday night we went to Maui’s football game and that was pretty much the highlight of the whole weekend- the rest of the weekend was spent vegging at home in front of the T.V. A nice relaxing weekend is exactly what we needed 🙂 Here are some pics from the weekend.

Spa Date With My Daughter

I love hanging out with my daughter. The two of us can spend an entire day with each other without a dull moment. On Sunday we went shopping at the mall and decided that it would be fun to get pedicures at this beautiful nail spa called L’mour. It’s such a pretty place and they have so many different pedicures to choose from.  Téa got the Bubble-Licious pedi- it came with a fizzy bubble-gum soak and a sugar massage.  I got the Pomegranate Berry Pedi- crushed pomegranate and blueberry scrub and a pomegranate smoothie creme wrap.  Everything smells soooo delicious in there. photo 2BeFunky_nails1.jpg photo 1 photo 4 photo 3 photophoto 5

Like Mother Like Daughter

Over the weekend I shared with my 6 year old daughter that I’d be getting my nails done.  She begged me to let her get fake nails too.  She was so cute about it that I took her to Claire’s Accessories store to by some press on nails.  She chose Marylin Monroe nails, I tried to talk her into Audrey Hepburn (my favorite), but she really wanted Marylin.  Of course she ended up ripping them all off after about a half hour, and then wanting me to reapply them the next day.  I love having a daughter, I know we will be best friends forever 🙂  Just look at how beautiful her fingers are.  They look like the hands of a woman, they are so much prettier than mine.  #Jealous

Over the weekend my best friend Hina got hitched!  With her hair, dress and makeup she looked like someone out of an old fashion Hollywood movie, absolutely beautiful.  Congratulations Hina!  You are my sister and I love you and wish you all of the happiness in the world.
