Yesterday I got propositioned with a networking possibility. A local shop in the village is having a charity fundraiser and asked if I would like to come and do mini manicures for a few hours. The idea sounds great, they would provide all the equipment and I would get to feel good about helping charity. I would also have the chance to chat to people about what I am doing and about the fact I want to open a home salon in the summer.
Sadly it was not to be, the time they needed me was the same time that I work every Saturday. Poo! Still it is a great networking idea for another time. No doubt other stores will be wanting to do fundraisers in the coming months and perhaps I could offer to come along and do some mini manicures to aid their efforts and to help promote myself.
I was however still very flattered to be thought of and asked to come along to the event.
Tonight’s attempt at a theme was a mermaid theme care of a kids cartoon I watched with the littley before bed.
I really liked the green into blue shades for this play session. I can’t say I would ever wear it in reality but that is the fun of playing with make-up and getting extra practice in. It’s not really about me and what I would wear, it’s about experimentation and pushing my own boundaries until I get better at it all. I would say if you are currently doing your qualifications in beauty and you wish you were better at make-up, keep on plugging! In the end we are bound to get much better 🙂
