Can You Help My Son’s High School Band?

Can You Help My Son’s High School Band?

The end of the year is approaching quickly, and if you’re still looking for charitable contribution ideas, I would love it if you would consider donating to my son’s 2017 Fall Marching Band and Color Guard program.

His school, Aliso Niguel High School, along with many others, has been hit hard by the budget cuts and they are desperately in need of donations to continue running their program.

If you’re able to donate, please know that you’ll be helping an amazing program that has changed my son’s life and any amount would be incredibly appreciated. Just be sure to write my name (Kimberly Armstrong) in the notes section on the...

The Microblading Frenzy

Each week I receive a dozen or more calls inquiring about a fascinating new trend called “microblading.” The calls always fall into one of two distinct categories:

  1. The excited caller who just saw photos online of microblading and wants to know if we do it and when we can get her on the books.
  2. The disappointed caller who went to someone she found online who is unhappy with the shape or the color of her new “microbladed” brows and wants me to fix them ASAP.

My Two Cents on the Essential Oil Obsession

My Two Cents on the Essential Oil Obsession

It seems that everyone is obsessed with essential oils lately. Everywhere I go, someone is either talking about the uses of the oils, selling the oils or trying out the oils. And over the last year, I have been approached by dozens of women looking for me to try their essential oils in the hopes that I will sell them at Beauty Hideaway. I listened to each of their presentations, went to classes, looked over their materials and smelled the oils… which were always heavenly… but I didn’t believe in my heart that any of it would really work to heal anything as all of them claimed. I thought it...
