Life. Labor. Pain. I guess that’s what people really mean when they say blood, sweat, and tears. After 5 Lux has become my life. Even when the store is closed, I’m working on something for the store. When I’m not at the store, I’m thinking about the store. It keeps me up at night thinking of ways to grow the business . I recently had to stop bringing my phone into my bedroom at night so that I could get some sleep. I would sneak that baby from under my pillow and research stuff all night. I have bags up under my eyes the size of Mount Rushmore to prove it lol. Owning your own business is very laborious. I put in more hours at the store than a regular full-time job. I know it’s cliche, but it’s true, when you do what you love it doesn’t feel like work and you don’t mind putting in those extra hours. My crew and I began shooting at 5 a.m. today and didn’t wrap until 3 p.m. and I loved every minute. And although I do love the business a lot it does come with pain. There are good days and bad days, good weeks and bad weeks, good months and bad months, and even good quarters and bad quarters. But one thing stays consistent, my passion. After 5 Lux is not just me selling clothes, it’s me selling my passion. Yes the industry is becoming more saturated but no one can do what I do because I stay true to my style and the elegance and ambiance of the After 5 Lux woman. In fact, the increase in women’s clothing stores has only increased my drive. I think the irony of man is the will of God. I found it ironic that when cleaning up Monday, I found a book by @mrsrodial that I received at the @simply NYC Conference. I always wanted to read it but was just too busy. That night, I picked the book up, read it, and could not put it down. What resonated with me is when she stated that when you’re passionate about your business you don’t have an off switch— you’re always on go! I’ve made a lot of sacrifices for After 5 Lux. I missed some hair appointments but the company never missed a week of new arrivals lol. I can’t wait to see what 2019 brings and I want to say thank you to all my customers that have supported me along the way. ❤️

Sorry for this truth bomb, but to warrant the results both you and your skin care professional (aestie bestie) are expecting, you pretty much need to purchase all of the home care he or she recommends 🙆♀️
Don’t get me wrong, your in studio skin care services will give you life, BUT if you are not treating the skin at home with the recommendations provided to you, it will NOT deliver the results you are so desperately seeking. And if you are going to someone great, they will never recommend you something you don’t need, so if you know they are great, invest in what they suggest.
JLO isn’t just simply genetically blessed- she puts WORKKKKK into that regimen 💃 #skincareroutine#fortlauderdale#delraybeach#esthetician#estheticianlife#skincare#acne#bocaraton#bocaratonflorida#deerfieldbeach#delraybeach
