Spray Tanning

Yesterday I completed my spray tan course, I really enjoyed it, it was just my friend and I, we like small classes. 

The lady who taught us, Lisa, was really nice, she didn't mind us newbies questioning her about every bit of her beauty business, such as prices, what she offered, any tips which she gladly shared with us, some BT's don't as they are worried that we may undercut them (understandable, but Lisa lives over 40 miles away, so this wasn't going to be a problem).

Anyway, about the company that we used, Sunless Solutions, we were told that Amy Childs, she of TOWIE fame started off using this, so we will find this as an USP.  The aim of the game is to be quick and methodical and not leave the skin dripping wet with tanning solution.  Sounds easy eh ?!

I need to practice, practice, practice but I know I will be ok.

Much love, Jo x

Hi everyone (pic heavy)

Long time no read, I am sorry for my absence, I have no explanation, I just haven't blogged. 

I wanted to show you something that I made the other day, a light box, out of an old box, paper and poster board, so it's quite rustic, my soapy pictures were looking a bit rubbish, had half of my front room furniture on show, and it seems to have done the trick.

Here are some soaps I have made, pics taken using the new light box

Black Vetyver Cafe

Cedarwood, Sweet Orange and Lavender shaving soap

  Coca Mocha

Goats Milk, Oatmeal and Honey

Nettle Soap

Raspberry Blush

Unscented Salt Bars

Vanilla Anise

So there you have it, the pics look good I think.

Much love, Jo

What a shame the old interface had to go, I rather liked it.  Being Taurean I am loathe to change, I like my comforts etc :(

Apologies for being lax on the blogging front, but I had packed all my soaping stuff away, as I was preparing to move, now that doesn't look like it's happening for a long long time yet.

Much love, Jo x

Hi everyone

It's been a while since I have posted anything.  I have been quite busy with courses and building up my business, which is taking off nicely (beauty more than massage) not that I am complaining, am really enjoying that side of things. 

This last week I have decorated with my Mum, my daughters old room, it was Hot Pink and is now a nice normal Magnolia colour.  Hopefully in a few months time my parents will be moving back down to Essex and I shall be moving back in with them and renting out my property, needs must for the time being I'm afraid, (even though the business is picking up, money is still very tight, thankfully I don't have a mortgage nor pay rent, but my little cleaning job just about covers the bills, but I still have to eat and put petrol in my car).

The decorating of Nell's old room means that all my soaping equipment is now in storage in the garage, and I don't know when I will next soap.  I must have 20lbs of soap in storage *eek* guess what people are getting for Christmas, unless I sell some at the home I massage at once a week, or at the cleaning job that I do.  My next decorating task is my bedroom or the bathroom or the kitchen, I don't know which yet, they all need doing.  The fascias and soffits need doing, I need a new back door, boiler, kitchen sink and a shower, I said to my Dad when all of this is done I won't want to move out!!  Who am I kidding, I need somewhere bigger and a back door that isn't in my bedroom lol I live in a bungalow and that's how it is!

Much love

Nag Champa

Haven't made anything in about 5/6 weeks, but got this slab mould today, made by an ex clients husband (well chuffed, he said he would make me whatever I wanted), so thought I would try it out, Nag Champa fast mover, went really thick, and I wasn't able to do what I wanted. TD underneath and Activated charcoal, used the chopstick to try and make a few swirls underneath, will see how it goes :)
Much love, Jo

P.S don't like this new layout :(
