Aloha honeys! I have some exciting news! I received a call today from Julie, who is the assistant manager for Nordstrom's cosmetics section at Ala Moana Mall, telling me that I got the job offer to work for Shiseido! Happiness emerged as she announced my acceptance into the cosmetic industry. I wanted to cry tears of joy, but did it internally because I was in public at the bus stop (lol). I've been waiting for this day my whole life, and now an opportunity to be a part of the beauty business awaits me. I am looking forward to meeting the beauty community, build long lasting friendships with my customers/co-workers, train and learn to do the facials and massages, help women see and unleash the inner beauty within them, and share my talent with others. It has been a long battle trying to get into cosmetics, especially after being rejected followed by dissapointment. But hope, holding on, and the effort to keep going, inspiration, prayer, and strong passion for cosmetics finally brang acceptance. I'd like to thank Julie, Naomi, Derese, and the beauty bloggers and youtube make-up gurus who have inspired me and have become my support system. Mahalo(thank you) all so much, god bless all of you!
