I've finally done this.  I've started a blog.  This is something I have resisted for years.  Maybe a fear of writing every week... and no-one is reading!  And not knowing what to write about.    So that is where I need YOU!!!!   If you like an article or post....  please leave a comment, or press the Facebook "like" link, or somehow let me know you're out there reading this.  And....  I need suggestions for things to write about.  So don't hesitate to give me some ideas for topics.  I will really appreciate it.

Now... what do I write on the inaugural post??   How about an introduction.

My name is Jodie.  In 6 weeks time I'll be turning 44 years old.  I have been a beauty therapist since 1995, and most of the time since then I owned a number of beauty salons/day spa's in Melbourne.  In 2006 I had my first child (Shaun).  In 2007 I had my 2nd child (Shelli).  It was at this time that I decided to sell my salon.  Taking care of two babies, and traveling into the salon was too difficult.  And having owned the salons for 12  years at that time... I was ready to move onto something new.  And that's when this website really evolved.  I had used and sold Ahava beauty products in the salon, and I loved them.  So it was a great decision to sell the product online.... especially as there was no other authorized online stockist in Australia.   I do not import the products, as that is handled by the Australian distributor.  They do not retail the products - so we work well together.  They wholesale the products to the salons and selected stores around Australia.  And I retail the products via my website.  This is particularly handy for people that can't make it to a salon. 

A few months ago we introduced some more Israeli products.  Anna Lotan and Fresh Look.  I am very excited about this, as they have some awesome products in their range, some of which I'm using now.  I plan to do a "product profile" regularly, so you can get to know the products and their benefits. 

I tend to waffle on a bit when I write.  So I will take this opportunity to finish now before I turn this into a book. 

Please...  I would love your feedback and suggestions.... so when you read the upcoming posts... don't forget to leave me a little comment if you like it, or have some ideas and suggestions. 

I hope you enjoy this blog. 

And I hope that 2012 will be a fantastic year for you.



ps:  forgot to mention....  9 months ago I had my 3rd child (Shani).
