I thought I'd share a little info about myself. My name is Vanessa and I was born and raised just outside of Chicago. I am in my early 30's and LOVE beauty & fashion. I was raised by an amazing woman (my mom & surrounded by strong women with strong sense of themselves) who always taught me girlie fashion and beauty. I wore makeup and enjoyed fashion, even while attending an all girls school, during my last years of high school. After graduating Trinity College Prep in River Forest, I attended Pivot Point International Beauty School, studying Aesthetics. I have maintained my Aesthetician license since 2001. Prior to beauty school, I worked in the beauty industry and continued to do so for the past 13 years, searching for my niche...which I still haven't quite found.
I do strongly believe in good skin care ethics, maintaining one's self image & having fun in the process. I love learning from others in the industry (or with just an interest in beauty) and do not think you are ever too advanced to learn in this profession. I continue to take courses that advance my skills.
I simply hope to gain insight from others & possibly a clientele to keep me busy, as I grow my blog & my own lil family. I hope you enjoy everything I throw into cyber space & please do not hesitate to ask questions or request insight.
Smile, being a lady is fun & we should enjoy each other more!
