Did You Know....

Generally, I write reviews on products or treatments I think you may find helpful.  However, one of my new years resolutions is to get more personal on the blog so you can learn a bit about me and I can gain more knowledge about you in the process.  So here we go.

Did you know....

*  I love to bake!  I really do.  Not boxed cakes and refrigerated cookies.  Everything has to be from scratch.  Pie crust is one of my specialties.  This weekend I am making a cherry cheesecake.  Exactly like this one!

*  I have always wanted to learn to play the drums.  In grade school when we were picking which instrument we wanted to learn to play I ended up in the wrong line without realizing it.  Because I was so shy and didn't speak up, I ended up playing the flute!

*  I look like a girly-girl but am much more comfortable with a power tool in my hand than a makeup brush.

*   Which brings me to my next bit of info. I love and I mean absolutely adore anything skin care related.  I am passionate about being about being able to change and rejuvenate the skin with a chemical peel or photo facial. If someone needs to know about skin tightening treatments or Botox I can talk all day long!  But if anyone has a question about makeup for me, you will hear crickets.  I am a makeup challenged esthetician.  There, I said it and I feel better now! 

*  When I was in 3rd grade I complained to my mom about how cold my nose would get walking to and from school.  This was in the middle of one of our brutally cold winters.  As a joke mom crocheted me a nose warmer.  (My mom has a fabulous sense of humor!  So blessed to have her!)  Anyhoo what she did not realize is I was actually wearing it!  I was pretty darn proud of it too!  It wasn't until she and my dad picked me up from school one day and I walked out of the school building wearing it did she find out.....she laughed so hard she peed her pant! I still have my nose warmer and it actually means so much to me to have it because about 28 years ago my parents home burned down and they lost everything.  It one of the few things I have left.  Plus I can still rock it!!!  Don't ya think?!


For a couple more fun facts about me you can read this.  Now please share some tidbits about yourself. 

*  Is there something you are good at but only your closest peeps know?

*  What have you always wanted to learn to do?

*  Confess what you not good at. We promise not to tell anyone else!

*  Did you ever do something as a kid that you thought was cool, but now looking back you realize maybe wasn't?

Till next time.  Have a beautiful skin day!  Your Esthetic Goddess,  Susie

    1. Shauna so glad you enjoyed it! I always admire all the make up tutorials I see out there but am clueless myself when it comes to that. When we study make up in esthetics school I was bored to tears!

    1. Thanks, Lisa! A benefit of it is it makes your butt look smaller too! I think that would be a great selling point should my mom ever start mass producing them!!
