December in my eyes was a reminder that I can breathe life I to more projects than I thought was possible because my talent and passion for what I do is greater than what some may see.
>>> Some of my fave December MOTDs!
Looking into my day, it is a constant from rise to sleep hustle of writing, booking clients, continuing professional relationships with the right people and proving myself over and over and over and over… and over to the same handful of people while gaining more Rochelle believers. I have dreamed of being a luxury beauty educator for a longgggggg time. I know that in this constantly evolving industry being proficient as a makeup artist or skincare lover is not enough so I have programmed myself to chase this goal by becoming an innovator in the idea of what a beauty expert means.
In 2013 my life has become a multi-channel machine. In real life I have makeup clients searching for my work on social media while international beauty executives read my writing via a link passed on by Public Relations Firms that I have never met in person. The internet brings cross country and international fans following me for up to date articles featuring trending, new and pro makeup finds.
This year, I met innovative brand founder of British brand Illamasqua (more on that in a post coming soon) thanks to a PR contact, surpassed my personal goal of branding my own website with consistent traffic and decided to voice my personal goals to professional contacts in the hope of turning my lifelong dream into a reality. There is always uncertainty and hope that comes with a new year which always makes life interesting, right?
Goodbye 2013. Happy New Year Followers and friends!
