May-be Time to Treat Yourself!

May-be Treat Time!

May is coming… time to get Summer ready. I’m getting ready for a holiday and as a treat I’m having a little pamper! Exfoliating winter skin away, applying deep treatments to my face, hands, feet, elbows and knees,  polishing finger and toenails, defining my brows, lifting my lashes (as I can’t get to my regular lash lady!) and waxing all necessary areas! This shouldn’t be a May Treat, I should practice what I preach and do it ALL the time!

Holiday Time

I will be away until 13th May then I will be doing extra days to catch up on my return. Join my mailing list to be the first to hear of Special Offers and new treatments and nail goodies! Click here to register Mole End Design Special Offers and receive monthly emails with discounts for you.

April Treatments

April has been a very varied month for nails and lashes. Lash Lift has been very popular as it’s a zero maintenance treatment and adds so much to your lashes. I love doing Lash Extensions but so many ladies have fabulous natural lashes that just need a little lift and tint and get amazing results for 6-8 weeks!  I’ve used coloured lashes this month on some of my extensions, fabulous in the sunshine and when the light catches them! They are very subtle but look amazing.

April Nails

Nails designs have been varied this month. It started Dark and Wintry and ended all Springlike (see Spring – Have we missed it?) I’ve taken delivery of lots of new  polishes, Nail Effects, Bling and Glitter, Angel Paper, tools and lots of surprises ready for May. I’ve also attended 2 Online Nail Art Courses – watch this space for the results! I’ve also had Some Ela Loszczyk Training DVDs for my birthday and these look great! I can’t wait to get started. I’ve ordered more materials to complete the new designs, now it’s just a case of waiting for delivery and finding time to do them.

Just a Quick Post – Nails

I’m still madly catching up on everything, I see the light at the end of the tunnel, then suddenly my To Do List gets longer and longer! The websites are all just about sorted now. That’s it, I’m retiring from web design! No more HTML for me.

Self Employed

The Value of Independence

It’s been so hectic lately that my 1 year anniversary of working in my own studio slipped by! It’s been an amazing year and a real eye opener! Thank you to all who have supported me, it’s highly appreciated! Although Mole End Design has been around for years for my Graphic Design and Website work, it’s been migrating more and more towards my nails, lashes and brow business, now with waxing and spray tanning. The studio is now fully functional. Before October 2014 I did the odd set of nails, brows or lashes from home while working freelance elsewhere. It is now a fully stocked bespoke studio, away from the hustle and bustle of town life and fully private. it makes a real difference having everything I need under one roof, and if I feel inspiration coming on, I just pop into the studio and with the tools and accessories to hand, I can create instantly. It was the push I needed!

I’m petsitting inbetween clients for the rest of the month with my trusty sidekick stepping in to sit with the dogs while I work, racing back and forth. Hopefully I will get time to catch up on all my admin while I’m away from home without the distractions of glitter and polish tempting me to play!

More blogs coming soon… ‘I Painted a Cake’, ‘Seasonal Offers’ ‘Christmas Designs’…

October News and a Wedding Cake

It’s been a while! I haven’t had time to post for absolutely ages but I’m now trying to catch up. I thought I could see the light at the end of the tunnel but now have 5 websites to update as they all need to be mobile and tablet friendly, not to mention Google friendly. I’ve decided to delete the Mybrowzdorset site as everything is now covered on this Mole End Design site, this will be removed over the next few days.

I’ve been working on a monster wedding cake, decorating it with onestroke techniques, full blog post to follow. The wedding is today so hopefully will have permission to post the lot! These are the paintings I submitted in order to get the job. It’s taken up a lot of my time but it was worth it… I hope!

I’ve been to Sunderland for a mini break and while there had volume eyelash extensions applied by the brilliant Deb Callaghan at Essential Beauty. She created a lovely glamorous volume set for me, I absolutely love them! I have taken about 50 pics on my phone but cannot get a decent shot! It’s on my list to practice more new techniques for the latest looks in lashes. I’m inspired! New offers coming soon for an increased lash menu.  I just have to concentrate on one thing at a time! no limits to achieve

I also managed to squeeze in another course and am now qualified in full body waxing. I had a great time on the course but wasn’t expecting to have to subject myself to another student! Ouch! Learned lots and now making plans for the future!
