Hey blog followers, well this week has been just as manic as last!

I completed my spring clean and managed to find a home for all of my new business kit, which is great as it now means that I have my house back! It also makes it a better enviornment for clients if they wish to be treated in my home. This is always a possibility so if you would prefer this let me know!

Thursday saw me back at Kent Beauty Academy in Ashford with my willing model Nic to undertake day 2 of my Level 2 Make Up NVQ. I handed in my case studies and anatomy and physiology homework and I have to say I was rather proud of myself, and got good comments on all areas (thank you willing models!). Day 2 is all about fun with colour so we adapted many smokey eye looks for day and evening and then went on to look at 60’s styles. I was taught on a 1:1 basis by the lovely Nichola Allen, MUA who is absolutely fab! She gave me lots of tips about styles, products and equipment, and I now feel ready for my final assessment and to start working freelance! Go me!!

Now the 5th May has been in the diary for a long time, and is known to me as ‘photoshoot day’. When designing the website, I struggled to find stock images that I liked, and thought it would be more professional for me to have my own images, so I enlisted the help of a very talented photographer Louise from LS Photographics http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=100001095993114 who came to my house complete with backdrop, lighting and lenses to capture some fantastic shots for me. I am lucky enough to have beautiful friends and family, so was able to get 2 willing models for the day, Faye my sister and friend Sophia Adams http://www.sophiaadams.co.uk/. Both girls had make up done for different occasions and had their toes and nails painted. It was good fun and we managed to capture 145 images. I am like a child in a sweet shop, I am literally bursting at the seams to go and sit with Louise and go through them, once she has undertaken the task of editing them all. This means that I can update the site and FINALLY get all of my literature printed advertising the fantastic service that Flame Beauty can provide. So watch this space!……………
