When Strangers become Friends. 

From stranger – to wedding makeup artist – to friend – to business partner!! 🎨💕I owe so much of my 2016 changed life perspective to Nicole. She made me feel beautiful on the outside for all of my important events during this last year, but it was the power of her words and positive force in my life that had the greatest impact. I started using R+F because of her recommendation and the change in my skin led to my desire to want to try the business and my life has truly EXPANDED and been BETTER since. 🚀

You’re amazing, motivating, powerful and strong, Nicole. Thankful for the way life works and for strangers who become dear friends. Happy birthday, lady! 💎 #bossbabes #happybirthday #girlpower #cheersto2017

The Value of a Side Hustle


Well, it’s been a minute since I’ve blogged and wrote something new. I was a little preoccupied from the months of May – until now, and I think I have two pretty great excuses. What are they? Well, Brian’s sister’s bachelorette party, bridal shower, wedding, and then my bridal shower, bachelorette party and our wedding! Yes it was full on wedding season for the Lloyds! But let’s save that for another post (a post I’ve been dreading because I have oh so much to write about and lately it feels like just not enough time to sit down and do it!) I promise to update that chapter soon.

Today instead I’m writing about a little something I call “side hustle happiness”. Between the 11th-13th of each month, Rodan + Fields loads our personal debit cards with our monthly compensation. Each month my paycheck has grown and it’s mind boggling to me how and why. I literally pinch myself when I realize that I’m getting paid to sell skin care, help people achieve their skincare goals and more importantly, helping people to feel good about themselves inside and out. This is what I have wanted my life to feel like and be like.

I’ve said it before here and I’ll say it again and I probably won’t ever stop saying it. This company is a God send. You know how they say everything happens for reason? I know my reason was to be lead here. This company has already changed my life, motivated me to want better for my life, and provided me with the support and inspiration my life was lacking. I want more from myself and I know I can do it.

August will be a big test as I need it to be the biggest month for me yet. Our personal numbers at the end of the month is what helps determine our status at the upcoming annual R+ F convention in October. (Did I mention it is in Vegas?! Hello, Sin City!) I’m on the search for more and more people to connect with, bond with and help them reach their financial goals alongside myself and our amazing team. Shoutout to Team Grit and Glamour. Believe me, you want to be a part of these ladies – they all never cease to amaze me and keep me moving with their constant dedication and drive to their business and to our team as a whole.

I know I can do it and set myself up for the most successful month yet. It will take a lot of work, determination and focus, but that’s nothing I don’t have right? Right.

If you hear from me soon, you know why, and I sure as heck hope I can call you a business partner of mine shortly after. And if not, send those referrals my way! Any referral is a great referral. Any referrals I get that leads to a customer or consultant, I will send a free R+F gift. I’m unstoppable right now. And I won’t stop until I am home, full time, working this job from the comfort of my home and via the power of social media and wifi. The dream is alive.

Boss Babe

I get this question often and I know that those who don’t ask but are silently watching my posts are honestly wanting to ask as well: “Why in the world should I start this business?” My answer is short and simple: “So MANY reasons.” I’ve complied a quick list below – let them resonate with you and really sink in. When you are ready to ask, I’m here to answer and help you get started!
