10 Benefits of A Spray Tan & Why I Love Them

So early on the first Monday of the year, although it was a bit grey and cold, I woke up early got all the kids school and breakfast bits ready, then drank my cuppa as I set up my spray tanning tent and equipment. And whilst I’m not clever enough to spray tan myself (can you even imagine trying?!?).  I am blessed because I taught my other half how to spray tan!

I’ve shared a few clips on my insta stories and over on the page.

I have created this post as I really wanted to share the benefits of a good spray tan. My favourite benefit is the all round feel good factor it gives you with added body confidence and I Love delivering that to women through the spray tanning services I provide.

10 Benefits of Spray Tanning

Quick Application

With full consultation, clothes off, full tan, dry, clothes on your in and out glowing and golden in 25 minutes.

Instant Results

Due to the spray tan guide colour you can see your tan as it’s applied. This colour develops and once washed off you are left with a slightly lighter even tan that lasts up to 10 days.

Light, medium, dark, very dark, a mist, a spray, a definition tan. There is a tan to suit everyone.

Easy Preperation

Exfoliating the body before a tan removes dead skin cells. Leaving the skin refreshed, looking and feeling smoother providing an even base for your tan and taking care of your skin.

Aftercare with Added Benefits

Taking time to moisturise and love our bodies whilst nourishing and hydrating our skin, so taking care of your tan.

Golden Glow without the Damage

Ultimately spray tans are safe and provide you with a tan without the damage because sun bathing in harmful uva and uvb rays is not good for anybodies skin.

  • *added benefit no tan lines, t-shirt marks, flip flop feet or worse sunburn like a squashie

Body Appears Slimmer & More Toned

With a spray tan you can define and tone all the right places, accentuating features and making you appear slimmer. A spray tan can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks, varicose veins and skin pigmentation.

Feel Good & Boost Your Confidence

A tan just makes you feel good. It makes you smile more, it makes your teeth look whiter and your eyes look brighter. It makes you reach for the brighter clothes in your wardrobe, it makes you pay attention to and love your body a little bit more.

In a survey carried out by tan brand Sienna X 90% of women who had been spray tanned said they immediately felt more confident.

Stay Tanned All Year Round

Living in the uk sunshine is limited. You never know when you may get some sunshine or a break away to guarantee you natural tan, a spray tan can guarantee you a feel good glow all year round.

If you have your spray tan done with me other benefits include…

I put you at ease. I get it -You‘re about to strip off and you are nervous and that’s ok I’ll put you at ease make you feel comfortable and encourage you not to be so shy about your beautiful self. I’ll even share my hang ups if it makes you feel less alone ❤️

I’m funny – I tell dan this all the time, I’m hilarious. Even if I’m not I can normally generate a bit of laughter with my own stories to keep you happy and distracted why you are freezing and nearly naked.

I’m experienced. I’ve been trained in tans over ten years and I’ve done multiple courses with a few of the big brands. Including two levels of tanning with Fake Bake my chosen premium brand,  defintion tanning with LDN Skins and product training with Sienna X. I’ve tanned all ages, shapes, sizes . I feel confident helping you decide what tan is best for you, delivering it professionally and giving you the results you want.

I’m a perfectionist. I put a lot into the prep, precision and professional skills applied. I love my job and what I get to do and when I send you out, I want you out wearing the best tan, being the best you and feeling beautiful because of my work.

To find out more or to book contact here or over on the page, online booking coming soon. 

Have you had a spray tan? What did you love or what puts you off? I’d love to know. I personally love them and think they are such a confidence boosting treat, I wish more women would get past their hang ups or tan fears to try one. 

New Beauty Treatment | Why I’m Loving Lash Lifts

Last week I finally trained in lash lifts, I’ve been wanting to do this since seeing it at the beauty show a few years ago but you know, life happens and I just hadn’t got round to it.

The training was a day and I was really lucky I got the chance to be model for our teacher Angela and work on two models! This meant not only did I leave with beautiful lashes I got to train, experience, learn and question with two totally different types of lashes. It was great. One of my models already had long curly lashes but they went all ways and were quite fair on the ends so the results were still so striking and clear.

I found the process quite easy to learn and thanks to my ITEC beauty training knew the background, A&P and contraindications to eye treatments already. I find this reassuring as it’s not a big focus in the days training but the process is and I nailed it!

I then spent the weekend with models booked in so I could work on my set up, flow and perfecting the process. I loved it, I loved chatting with everyone booked in, I loved that I was making people feel beautiful with what they’ve got, I loved the results, the models loved the results too, I really loved their faces when they first looked in the mirror!

What I did learn is I need to work on my photography skills for my before and after pics as the ones above and below really don’t do the work or results justice! 

Patch test required 24 hours prior to treatment.                                      Available mobile or in salon.

Event Countdown | 3 Weeks To Go FAQ

The weeks are flying by super quick. This wreaks havoc with both my anxiety and my never ending to do lists, but silver lining it also means it’s only 3 weeks to go until the Be You Beautiful Christmas Pamper & Shop and I’m so excited!

Today I thought I’d answer some common questions I get about the events just to let people know more if they are thinking of coming along, encourage more people to share and invite others who may have asked questions.

Why do I host the Events?

Truth be told I don’t actually make a lot of money. I pay for venues with atmosphere, bars, parking and facilities clients and traders need, plus we do it on a prime night …Friday. So hall, marketing, decoration, printing, goody bags and stuff all mounts up. The hours I spend talking to traders and people about the event, the hours I spend thinking of ways to support, promote and get the word out, I could make better money doing more beauty, but it comes back to that cheesy saying “I’m doing what I love”. It’s not about the money, I trust I’ll work that bit out along the way.

Instead these events give me a chance to do lots of things that light me up  helping women indulge and take time for themselves, encouraging beauty, self care and connection, bringing friends and community together,  making a difference in multiple ways.

Not to mention the fact I  get to work alongside and support traders just like me working hard for themselves doing what they love and all trying to meet the same people. The lovely clients we get through the door, which leads me to the next question …

Who can come?

This is probably best answered by explaining why I started. As a beauty therapist I was attending school pamper evenings enjoying talking to mums as I offered nail services, but noticing that many were alone or just with their ‘mum friends’ and as a mum I understood, I would of likely only gone to my sons school for such an event. I felt more women deserved an evening of treatments, offers, shopping and spending time with friends.

So in answer to the question it’s for women. It’s for any woman, alone or with friends, with 30 minutes or 3 and a half hours to take for themselves, who deserve to indulge in a bit of me time (every woman deserves this and should make time for it!)

What does the evening involve?

We make sure to use venues with everything on offer; free parking, a bar, a spacious venue so we can also offer social tables to sit between shopping, treatments, chatting to traders and others attending on the night. We also have a charity raffle and a special charity drive running alongside this event.

What stalls will be there?

There will be loads. With over 25 stalls all together including; mediums/readers, Therapists offering over 15 beauty and holistic services at amazing rates, traders with unique one off items and on the night offers, goody bags first 50 guests, prize draws, give aways, demos and much more. I’ll be highlighting each of our traders in their own blog as we run up to the event, as well as sharing more about the night with you.

How much is such a fab night going to cost?

£2 entry, then the money for your beverages and spending money. Cash is recommended to bring along on the evening, as not a lot of our traders take card.

How can I get tickets?

You can pay on the door but if you like to be organised or want to treat your friends you can grab your tickets here.

How do I find out more?

If you would like up to date info check out the Facebook event here, if you have more questions get in touch here.

What’s Happening with Minx Nails In the UK.

If you don’t know what Minx nails are, welcome, I’m hoping you are new to the site, if not…where have you been?? Minx is one of my favourite treatments to offer at Be You Beautiful. Their slogan being ‘ extend fashion to your finger tips’ adored by many, seen on endless catwalks and covers, with a huge celebrity following, a treatment I trained in with session tech to the stars Liza Smith through her role as an ambassador and representative of Sweet Squared about 10 years ago and I’ve been offering it ever since. Obviously more popular in the summer with it’s often super shiny foils I can give you 10 reason Minx are loved in an instant, infact i did right here. Anyway, I’m not here to sell them to you because they are becoming endangered in the uk and I’m a little bit devastated.

What’s changing with Minx Nails in the UK?

When I went to order and couldn’t find all the designs I was looking for online, I called up the distributor Sweet Squared. These guys are my favourite supplier I have to order from, their customer service is like no other and they are one of the most friendly and helpful teams. As the only Minx distributors in the uk they have chosen to have streamline the designs stocked. They are gone from the hundreds down to just 10 that will be available, and whilst they are pretty and do mean I’ll be able to continue to offer them for the foreseeable future, they pale in comparison to the current choice of hundreds that are available.

And so I obviously, stocked up. Like seriously stocked up.

Designs available, minx stocked, Minx nails uk, minx discontinued, Minx nails, nails by, Be You Beautiful, beauty therapist Gravesend, beauty kent, minx designs, nail foils, September special

For a few reasons; Firstly I want to be able to continue to offer my clients an extensive choice of fashion to their fingertips and whilst I know that many clients love pedicures, Gels and glittery nails, I have lots that love Minx and I want to continue to astound them with the beauty and choice available. Secondly it meant I could let clients reserve and hold designs they love with a small deposit for minx appointments in the next 24 months. Also I could see lots I hadn’t before they were gone and try and judge what ones would continue to get picked, and oh my gosh already some of the designs that have been held are beautiful so my second order is going in this week!

10 Reasons I Love Minx Nails

Minx Nails are a polymer foil like a sticker applied to the nail after being heated, mess free with amazing results.

10. I’m trained as a Minx Pro, it’s something I am really proud of and I still really love treating clients too, i love how surprised and excited clients get with the end result, and the longetivity of Minx toes makes it a really popular choice for clients.

So there you have it 10 reason I love Minx Nails. I thought I’d share this extra bit. I love that my partner always makes me laugh and is super supportive of me doing what I do so when I just told him I was doing a blog on 10 reasons I love Minx, he counted his 10 finger nails and said just do each one different. He gets it, he gets I’m super passionate but also that these are really are so cool and transformational. 

Have you ever had Minx? Maybe you can think of another reason other than my ten on why you think they rock.

Why I Choose Neals Yard Remedies at Be You Beautiful

Yesterday I put in my personal skincare order! I ran out of all my favs over the last month!

As I’ve been with Neals yard a whole year now I figured I would share with you what made me choose them in the first place.

Why I choose Neals yard remedies, nyr, Neals yard, frankincense, skincare, be you beautiful, cleanse and tone, moisturise, beauty therapistWhilst I test many products through my job and through my blog, many of which I love (some I don’t) I have some products I use religiously. For example I love how I feel when I cleanse and tone with the frankincense range in the morning I feel refreshed and not like I have stayed up ridiculously late the night beforehand.

It was this initial love for just two products that made me talk to my friend Sophie over at Indulgence Holistic Treatments about using the products within my business Be You Beautiful just because I wanted to share these products with my clients in treatments. I signed up, no pushiness or pressure from soph, no need to make it my sole focus, no targets, I chose Neals Yard and here’s why….

💜I loved them … The feel, the smell, the texture, the packaging I could go on, I think a passion and belief in any product shines through.
💜They are organic. Whilst not important to all my clients, over the last ten years within the industry I’ve noticed people becoming more conscious of what they apply to their skin . They are also really ethical and open about their ingredients, where the are from etc.  That is an added bonus to me.
💜I wanted to offer a complete range of skincare that I felt I could break down, learn and use to address all clients needs.  Sensitive, dry, normal, oily, young, old, dull, whatever the clients issue was I wanted something on hand to offer a solution.
💜It gave me the opportunity to keep in touch with beauty treatments, products and updates through online training and in store training something that personally I love and is super important to me.
💜They are AWARD WINNING …..over and over again!
💜They Pay It Forward. To animals, to people, to our planet, and I find that pretty awesome.

You can find out loads more on the website (they set up and provide for me) here

I’m really not selling you anything just explaining my choice for the skincare ranges I use in treatments. You can get a free skincare consultation with me anytime, online or in person. I’m really not a pushy sales person (infact sales is my weakness) if you want more info, to find out more or try a product, buy something, book a facial, book a girls night in (with range of treatments) …. then I’m here. It’s what I do, it’s what I love and I’m more than happy to help and make a difference. For my clients, my team and my beautified self! (When I get 5 minutes to pamper myself in between work and the kids that is!)

Anyway, whilst I wait for my latest order to arrive join in the chat in the comments below or over on the Facebook page!

Thank You 2015 it’s been emotional, amazing and fast!

WOW what a year! I know it’s flown by but I didn’t actually realise the full extent to all the awesomeness I have achieved in this year. Instead like many I was focussing on the shitty bits that seem to resurface year after year, the small challenges sent to guide us. It was only when I sat down with my Leonie Dawson 2016 planner and had to look at this past year I actually pushed myself to think of all the things big and small!

Thank You 2015, Leonie Dawson planners, business, working mum, preparing for 2016, feeling fabulous, be you beautiful

So what have I actually done? 

As well as trying my best to work through very shite hypremisis gravadium, my biggest achievement wasn’t in business but in my personal life completing our little family with the arrival of our third beautiful baby and this time it was a pink one! I don’t talk about them much on here instead I gush about them on my other blog, but couldn’t let the moment slip by of achievements without including these 3….

My beautiful children, my biggest achievement, blessed, beautiful, natural shot, be you beautiful, mum and monsters

Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone, Monday Motivation..

I have another little blog, I don’t really tell people about.  It’s about me as a Mum and just dealing with life in general and it makes me feel exposed and maybe a bit too open when people I know read it. Which is exactly what happened this weekend when my Mum wanted me to share a post and I didnt think through the way Facebook now shares every move you bloody make even with private settings!

It’s not that I’m embarrassed, more anxious and nervous of being judged, I wanted to be able to divide my work and my day to day, but to have the chance to write about both. Anyway it’s out there now and so I just have to grin and bear it and hope hey all forget about it soon. Having said that by stepping out my comfort zone by accident, I realised how much it can take you towards your goals, how much it can make you grow and that actually it isn’t too scary.

So it took me towards my goal by making my Mum and Monsters blog reach its highest number in a day so far EVER it was pretty awesome watching the numbers go up and in the end 280 had read that blog post and visited my website in one day! That’s pretty cool for little old me. It made me grow a pair, in that I shouldn’t be so bloody scared and also maybe helped me squash my anxiety just a little bit more. And it isn’t too scary because infact once it was out there, I had lots of loving words, support and kindness coming from family, friends and people I work with. So all that has inspired my Monday Motivtion for you today, what could you do this week that will help you grow by taking a step outside your comfort zone?

Stepping outside your comfort zone, motivation, inspiration, quotes, Monday motivation, mum, beauty, working, taking chances, feel the fear and do it anyway

 

 

#MondayMotivation Mistakes are Okay!

Monday motivation, #MondayMotivation, business, mumpreneur, be you beautiful, mistakes are ok, live and learn, trial & error

Business can be tough and mistakes are okay! In a world where everything is advancing quickly, where there is always something new to learn and always new fabulous people to connect with we can’t get it perfect all the time … And why would we want to!

I love this Monday Motivation quote especially after a weekend of trying to make sure the rebrands complete, that the websites all working, getting my head round google analytics and designing funnels for all the new launches to come November-January.

I’m part of some fabulous business support groups on Facebook and two in particular I love are CEO Mums Business Club and Women Inspiring Women. Last week a lady shared the story of Thomas Eddison and his view on mistakes (despite scrolling through for last 50 minutes in both groups I can’t find original post to credit and instead became distracted by all the awesomeness).  And I’m sure like many you have heard this inspiring story before. I had, but having made tons of mistakes this weekend it just reiterated its ok, stopped me getting stressed and reminded me I’m moving in the right direction.

Thomas Edison’s teachers said he was “too stupid to learn anything.”  As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.” I have also heard it quoted that he found 1,000 ways that didn’t work before finding the one that did, either way every mistake was a stepping stone to moving towards the end result and boy are we glad he didn’t give up! And I’m not giving up anytime soon either, I’m embracing my mistakes, learning from them and pushing forward. It feels fabulous now I’m looking at it in a different light and just thought putting it into a Monday Motivation may help others who feel stuck in a rut or going in circles.

 

 

#MondayMotivation Be A Mosquito

Monday. Motivation. #MondayMotivation. Beauty. Inspiration. Anita Roddick. Be You Beautiful.

So I find women like Anita Roddick (founder of The Body Shop) a huge motivation & inspiration anyway, she shaped the way for ethical consumerism and made waves of developments fighting against animal testing and for fair trade in third world countries.

Anita was a Dame, businesswoman, campaigner and inspiration.  This quote brings me a huge smile, too often when considering where I’m heading and my bigger dreams I think “who am I to do that?” Or “I’m just little old me, I couldn’t achieve that” both statements are in fact bullshit and this makes me not only remember that and smile but also think of myself like that mosquito, if I don’t get a bite the first time keep going.

So my beauties what amazing, fabulous, ginormous dreams do you want to set out to achieve? No limits … I’ve been planning for after baby 3s arrival (just under 4 weeks to go) and been really ambitious for the beauty and empowerment I want to create for others, it’s got me all excited.

The Be You Beautiful Blog Coming Soon

BLOG COMING SOON … Like everything else with Be You Beautiful, my blog seems to be a work in progress. Which I find hugely frustrating. I’m in the midsts of creating this website and what I have visioned in my head is totally awesome! It’s beautiful, inspiring and jam packed.

Creating it is a lot tougher than I imagined whilst I’ve been doing courses, studying and working away (as well as being a month away from baby 3) I’m also discovering the stepping stones of where I want to finally head.

Be You Beautiful, Blog Coming Soon, Beauty, News, Reviews

Anyway I just wanted to post this to fill the empty blog page and ask you lovelies to hang in there I’m working on transferring the best posts from the old blog Totally Sweet Cheeks whilst uploading lots of new reviews, content and exciting stuff for you all.
