This week has been a real challenge already. And it’s only Monday.

I have, just this morning, published my first book. It’s an e-book called, The Gorgeous Girls Guide to Beautiful Skin. Do have a look at it here.

It was one of the scariest moments of my life. Particularly because this was purely voluntary! It took ages to upload, mostly this was me accidentally deleting information I had already put in. I think I had 6 cups of tea while I went through this process.

When it was done, I sat and stared at the screen and then I burst into tears. I’m still not sure why. A combination of panic and relief I guess. I do think that Amazon could have been more helpful though, I thought a message saying “Are you ok?” or “Do you need a hug?” could have popped up. That would’ve been nice.

This has been a truly big challenge, and now that I’ve done it, I’m really excited and very happy to share it with you.

Love

Susi

Joining the Ultimate Blog Challenge

The Ultimate Blog Challenge
I’ve taken part in the Ultimate Blog Challenge this January, I decided to do it, not really to boost my blog but to make a commitment to writing as often as possible and to try and hit the target. I want to be a better writer so a challenge to write every day seemed like a good idea. I also wanted to break through the fear that strikes when its time to write. I’ll usually sit on the sofa and bite my fingers while avoiding looking at the computer or I’ll go and find something to do “quickly”. This is why its day 5 (though in fairness I signed up 2 days late) and the house is spotless.
My main subject is beauty tips, favourite and most useful beauty and make up products, and answering questions that I’ve been asked for the last 20 or so years of being a beauty therapist, so if there are any questions out there let me know.
 I’ve also got another personal challenge of clearing the clutter of outdated habits, too much paper and making this year simpler and happier.
