Fireworks in Corpusty - Norfolk

Me and Jessica had a lovely time at the Corpusty's annual fireworks display. Jessica loved it!! So pleased as I was worried the large crowds and loud bangs would be too much for her. Sadly she did fall asleep 10 mins before the end of the show! It never fails to amaze me what babies can sleep through!

Semi-permanent eyelash extensions -uneven lash growth

I am really excited to be blogging about this client of mine. She has been seeing me for two-ish months now and when she first came to see me had hardly any of her own natural eyelashes on one eye. It is a really rare case of uneven lash growth. I believe it was from over curling and too much mascara. She wanted semi-permanent eyelashes done for a wedding coming up at the weekend. I advised her to go for express lashes at the time as I could close the gap better with these. Two weeks later I had her booked in for a full set of mink semi-permanent eyelash extensions in my Norwich salon. I called up one of my wonderful wholesalers and ordered in some Y lashes, which are basely split lashes to give volume. I applied 10 Y lashes on one eye and they looked really full by the end of the appointment. 

Now six weeks on her natural eyelashes have had time to recover and I no longer need to use Y lashes. They look absolutely fabulous now and I highly recommend individual eyelash extensions to anyone with uneven and damaged lash growth. My client feels like a changed woman.





Gorgeous French silver glitter tips in Gellux gel polish

This is very popular at the moment in the salon French tips nails with silver glitter manicure. Also lots of red now that we are getting closer to the festive season. I have 12 different colour glitters, 12 different colours of rock glitter and 12 different colours of the caviar art. If I don't have something you want. Just ask!



Gellux gel polish nails in Norwich

I am getting amazing results with the Gellux gel polish. The photo attached has been on for 3 weeks and not one chip. It's great using a product that I know I will get great results with. Started using the new 'easy off base coat' from Salon Systems this week. It will be interesting to see if it makes much difference when removing the gels. Popular trends in the salon this month seems to be glitter and loads of it!! French manicure with a bit of bling is becoming very popular too. Lots of crystal lines and glitter lines with different colour tips. Everyone is loving the nail art stickers for Christmas and already having to put some designs to one side that people have shot-gunned.

This week has been crazy busy. Two Gellux gel polish pamper parties and even people on the waiting list to get booked in. Really looking forward to both parties. I haven't met the hosts yet, but they both came through WOM of two regular clients. These parties are becoming really popular.

Halloween in Norwich

I can't believe me and little Jessica had 15 groups of trick or treaters last night in Norwich! I don't think I have ever had that many before. I did the fatal mistake of giving three sweets each child at the beginning of the night, but soon realised that wasn't going to happen! I literately had just enough sweets in total. Took ages to get Jessica off to sleep after all that excitement.

I am slowly getting the business ready for Christmas. I have three confirmed pamper parties for December and two in the pipeline. Some days are already booked out completely for December, so I must remember to remind my regular clients to book in early. I have done some hand painted nail art for Christmas and have some sticker Christmas art at the ready. Lots of candy cane, Santas, trees, cupcakes, presents, reindeer and snowflake art.

New Gellux colours in

Just in the door from a visit to the wholesaler and now have two more fabulous Gellux gel polish colours in. Pink Violets and chocca mocha. I can't wait to try them out on my client's nails in Norwich.

I have also purchased the 'easy off base coat' from Gellux. This product is so good that it can last up to one month on some clients and harder to remove on them. On average it's 15 days no chip or peel, so will be good to see how this new product from salon System works out. I will keep you updated.

Popped into the garden centre on the way home to take Mum out for a birthday lunch and Jessica loved the Christmas decorations at Highways. She wasn't happy that we wouldn't let her have a giant reindeer, penguin or Santa!

Why embark on social media marketing? Strategy, tips & tools

I have just got back from a brilliant lecture from @Julie Bishop at Jobhop. Really impressed by how knowledgeable she is with social networking. I am really looking forward to Lucy from Events in the east booking her again for more lectures.  I have a huge to do list now and very excited about putting things into motion. Look out for a new u-tube channel coming soon :)
