Oh hey, I didn’t see you there😏🤪. My name is Jenn and I’m the Pham behind Phamous Beauty! 😉 it’s been a minute since I’ve made a post about me and we’ve got some new friends up on in here. Soooo.. here are 3 things about me! .
1. My Disneyland pass expired today. I can’t say that I’m all too sad...yet.
2. I’m in love with plants. I currently have 8 and am trying my best to keep them alive. I name al my new friends, talk to them, and touch their leaves so they know I’m there. ... i swear I have real friends too tho.
3. I believe having a strong foundation leads to beautiful makeup so I talk and teach skincare to all of my clients at our preview appointment so my clients have amazing skin on their special day. Great skin means less makeup, longer wear, and better application.
#Tbt Aside from me running for the #Detroit Charter Commission I enjoy gardening and cooking. Check out this short clip to learn about what I enjoy doing with my spare time. Dinner party at my house lol ❤️ Twitter: @votelaurahughes

Mt. Emily is the first of only two sites in the continental U.S. that were bombed by Japan in 1942. It was a failed attempt at starting a major forest fire. The mountain served as a walk-about destination; and also a spiritual center for prayer, guidance, and meditation. My people would climb to the top to be closer to the “Sky People”, their ancestors. There was even a time they hiked it to see if a tsunami had retreated back into the ocean. Walking the same path as the natives I descend from brings me so much nostalgia, I have to take a moment or two to sit and take it all in. They’re not here anymore, but I am. And my only hope is to honor their history and never let go of the culture I’m so privileged to embrace. A massacre during the Rogue Indian Wars left nearly all the population ravaged, and I am so grateful my grandmother was able to survive the genocide. Whether she swam out into the ocean to rocky islands and clung to them, or ran deep into the redwoods to find refuge, I know she is strong. I know she is wise. Last summer a fire burned its way up to the foot of her gravesite, then the wind turned and no more of the family cemetery was damaged. I know in my heart she was there. I know there is a reason I am alive. I feel it in my blood, the best is yet to come. #nativesoul#fuckchristophercolumbus#youareallimmigrants#trailoftears#rogueindianwars#history#culture#oregoncoast#upperleftusa#mtemily#enmay#xvsh#tolowa#sage#prayer#ancestors#grandmotherwillow#nativeamerican#gettoknowme#funfacts
Cool. Today I learned that the "Shaka" hand gesture came from a guy named Hamana Kalili. Who lost his fingers in a sugar plant accident. When he was moved to train security he would wave like this as an all clear signal. As a show of respect members of the community would wave back in same manner and the gesture was adopted by local surfers and others and spread throughout the world. #funfacts
Meet the maker part 2.
Janine here, filling your Thursday afternoon with some more random things to know about me. - today is my birthday!🍂 - when I am not in the shop or behind my laptop you can find me with either my killer friends or my adorable nieces and nephew - my nieces and nephew are my world. (Sorry everyone else.)
- I graduated high school at age 17 and in the same year moved all the way to Dallas, TX
- I never finish college, but I’m so okay with that because God has a plan and the plan didn’t require a full degree🙌🏼
- I often question if I made the right move doing Rosewood co full time without another source of income. But everything just keeps working out, and I wouldn’t trade the freedom I now have for all the money in the world. - When I left Charlotte to move to Dallas, I never dreamed I would move back. Little did I know my real calling was here, building tables of all things. I say that loosely though, because I know this is what I’m called to now, but who’s to say what life will bring down the road. For now I’m just going to keep doing what I know and striving for the best!
So grateful for you people following along and including us in making your houses feel like home.
Table making is the best. ✌🏼
#FunFacts: On the west side of the historic City-County Building stands a statue erected by school children in 1936 as a tribute to the Declaration of Independence and Pledge of Allegiance. The monument was placed before Congress officially adopted the pledge in 1942 & the inscription contains the original text, which does not include the words “under God.” The Pledge we recite today was amended in 1954. #History#HistoricBuilding#cityhall
