Where Am I Now? 8 Months After Retiring This Blog

It is just over 8 months since I officially announced I was retiring Beauty Au Natural blog.  It was a hard decision to come to but once I did it, I knew it was the right thing to do.  I wasn't as passionate about it as I once was and that wasn't fair to me or my readers. I was looking for more than I could get from this and my instinct said it was time to walk away.  No need to worry, I plan to keep this website up and running so you can still access the information I wrote over the years.

Where am I now?
I am still working full-time as a college librarian. I am also a design consultant for Madison Handbags and a distributor for Young Living Essential Oils. For more detailed info on Young Living Essential Oils, visit this guide. If you are interested in purchasing oils or signing on as a distributor, please use my link so I get credit for you signing up through me https://www.youngliving.com/signup/?site=US&sponsorid=1731495&enrollerid=1731495

I did a lot of soul searching and did the Artist's Way 12 week program. It was life changing.  I feel like I found myself again.  I finished my first quilt. I started to make art again. Not only that but I got asked to present at the college where I work on art, poetry and creativity for wellness and personal sustainability.  I also got a part-time gig teaching painting at a fun wine and painting place in my local area. This has all been bringing me the interaction, connection and sense of community I was longing for.

No worries though, I still love playing and discovering natural beauty products.  I think I have gone back to lippies being my addiction above all else.  I am enjoying a simpler eye look and bolder lip colors.  I started to shampoo my hair only 1-2x per week and simply massage my scalp in the shower daily and just apply conditioner. My hair has never looked better.

I have realized I am in overwhelm of how many products I own and decided it is time to downsize to stay tuned to Facebook for a big makeup virtual yard sale soon. I plan to keep lots of favorites and find good homes for the rest.  It feels right to simplify.  I kept missing that simplicity and now I am ready to try to get back to it myself instead of having drawers and drawers of makeup I can't keep track of.

I hope you are all doing well. Thank you again for all the support over the years I worked on this blog.

Peace, love & natural makeup!
