HAPPY HOLIDAYS

YA’LL WE DID IT

WE SURVIVED 2018

:: cmon it’s me, these things mean we scream ::

It was a YEAR, amirite…

So much happened this year for me both professionally and personally, I just don’t even know where to begin in a 2018 wrap up. Wanna get personal?

This year was HARD. Real hard…my tiny baby became a full grown human and my gooooosh are the terrible two’s somethin else. It wasn’t a great year for health around our house and it seemed like we could never just all be in sync as far as that was concerned. And I guess the biggest hit this year was losing my beloved dog, Clover, out of the blue. This year brought some really trying times to our table and yet I can still look back at it and recall all of your faces…

Yeahhh you. You who trusted me with your beauty…and the beauty of your loved ones. You who handed me sugar when the world was handing me lemons. You who hired me for your wedding day or elopement…

You who follow me and my journey on Instagram ( shameless plug it’s @medicineofbeauty) and hit the “like” button so I know you’re out there.

You who request me to do tutorials HEY GUESS WHAT I’LL HAVE NEWS ABOUT THAT SOON OKAY

You who come visit me at work even if it’s not for makeup and just to say hey…I really like that too.

You who don’t care I haven’t been using enough comma’s in this because I just don’t want to LOL

AND SO MANY MORE YOU’S

Business wise it’s been a crazy year too! Started off with a business partner who was handling the Hair aspect of the biz…she decided in the fall to take another position and step back from Weddings. And through that, I got to branch out and meet other incredible stylists from all over the island that are wanting to work with a company that they believe in and that honors their skill ( hi, it’s mine…more on this in another post) We took part in the Hawaii Bridal Expo in July and while it was an amazing chance to meet other Bridal Vendors here in Hawaii, we didn’t really find our niche.

WELL WE HAVE NOW

I am so proud to announce that in addition to being on the 2019 Kualoa Ranch preferred vendor list, we have also secured a Sponsored Spot on Wedding Wire!

:: aaaand cue screaming ::

This little slice of heaven, will blast the business into the mainland, connecting us with each and every one of the destination brides that types in “Makeup Artist - Hawaii” into their Wedding Wire search

SO LIKE GO GET ENGAGED THIS HOLIDAY SEASON OK AND COME TO HAWAII

So the year is coming to a close and, for me, it’s always bittersweet. What did I rock at this year? Where could I have done better? I don’t set New Year’s resolutions, I set goals. Daily goals…look at the world through the eyes of my daughter and always stop to smell the roses or to sing really loudly to your favorite song…weekly goals to manage my time so that my family comes first…monthly to actually take a few days off here and there to go on more dates with my husband…and yearly? Well thats a big goal and I’ll share more of that later.

But I wanted you to all know how much your love and support have meant to me this year and how excited I am to share 2019 with all of you.

Mahalo Nui to my Ohana
