Hey there Girls,
After taking time out to spend with my babies (dipping in and out of work) and some stressful periods (as everyone has) I have finally decided to take the bull by the horns and do something for myself. It can be very hard to find breathing space in a house with 4 wee ones amazing and all as they are and meaning the world to me, after 10 years I think you come to realise that you do need to do something for yourself and not feel the guilt us mothers always feel.
I have finally decided to do it and take on the challenge, now is as good a time as ever and I am going back to school!!!! I’ve always loved makeup, doing my own since I was 14 but always sorry I didn’t do it when I left school. I’ve decided old and all as I am now is the time………..Most people my age when you left school it was all about finding that job, get you in the workplace and once you start its very hard to escape the rat race with the lure of money, being able to spend your own, buy your own car, rent a room and most of all gain your own independence not necessarily thinking of the future, just going with the flow. It s only when you reach your 30’s, have your children and settle that you realise there is more out there that you can do , you don’t need to settle no matter what age you are you can always change your direction and do something you have always wanted to do.
So this Saturday I start my Diploma in Professional Makeup Artistry with Vanity X makeup Academy in Swords for the next 14 weeks and I am beyond excited but at the same time anxious and fearful! The fear will not win once the course starts that will vanish and the enjoyment will take over. We will be covering everything from skin analysis, skin care, brush care to many different makeup looks. I booked this course back in September, so it feels like an absolute age coming around but now it’s here its hard to believe!!!! Whilst I’m very happy and confident doing my own makeup I want to build up my confidence doing other people’s makeup and who knows where it will take me but for now I’m just going to enjoy doing something I love. As they say if you love what you do you will never work a day in your life, I truly believe this. Nothing worse or more depressing than being in a job that you dislike, it makes every day hard to get up and face the day. My family are amazing, so supportive and excited too and it’s really a new challenge for us all. Mammy certainly doesn’t head off every Saturday at the moment so that in itself will be different for everyone 🙂
So my intention is to do a weekly update here on what we’re doing and how I’m getting on with the course…….I’ll also be updating on my Facebook (Foundationofstyle), Instagram (Foundationofstyle) and Snapchat (sarahj.keogh) So bring it on!!! Hope you enjoy coming on the Journey with me girls, If you have any questions about the course or anything at all, please feel free to ask.
Till next time girlies,
