This Is Me

Wow I'm actually shaking typing this post.  When I started LiverpoolLashes back in April 2010 I never knew what it would become or that it would take me from a call centre worker to a nail technician, beauty therapist and hairdresser.  The one thing I was certain of was that I would never appear in a video and I chose to have my logo so that I was virtually unrecognisable.  I never wanted anyone to feel like I wasn't a real person by keeping myself virtually anonymous but I was very uncomfortable with who I was as a person and I've always felt if anyone met me that they would be disappointed, I probably wouldn't live up to expectation.  Over the years I've felt a lot of guilt that I haven't been as open about who I am but if you struggle to like yourself then you can't really expect anyone else to.  If you've followed me for a while you'll know that I've recently lost a lot of weight and I'm finally becoming the person I felt like I was on the inside, I believe in myself a little more although I'm only half way to where I want to be.  

That aside, I've thought long and hard about this and as since I'm going to Professional Beauty North tomorrow with some fellow nail technicians, I figured that if I post a photo of me and you happen to see me - I can say hello to you.  Honestly, I would only think that perhaps one or two of you might want to but I'm giving you the option by posting this photo as it's the only way I could think of doing it.  This is a shameless selfie that I took recently but it's nice and clear hopefully!  If you're not going tomorrow then at least you can put a face to the name or something perhaps?!

If you do want to come and say hello and you see me, please do!  I'd love to meet you.  The place is going to be utter chaos and I'm mentally preparing for how busy it's going to be so obviously I can't really make an actual meeting place.  I'm a little quirky let's say but I tell myself that that's a good thing.  

I'm off to go and pat myself on the back as another accomplishment for this year as there's no way I ever thought I'd be doing this, my friends and family will be really shocked but I don't want to hide anymore.  If you want to meet me, I want to meet you!  My badge will say 'LiverpoolLashes' on it as well.
