bloom where you’re planted.
2018 has a been a big year and full of new beginnings. If you’ve followed me on Instagram you’ve probably seen that my husband, fur baby and I embarked on our new adventure moving to a new state! We left the great state of Texas where my hubby was born and raised! & headed to the Midwest and now live in Springfield, Missouri (we love it so far!) I knew it would be a challenge to market and grow this business of mine in a new city, but I was determined to do it!
Moving the business
First things first, I got my LLC and DBA in Missouri. After being in business for 3 years in Texas, I felt pretty pumped about getting the business started in Springfield even though it felt like I was starting over, moving to a new area without any connections. Something that has been on my business bucket list was to start my senior spokesmodel program. This required a TON of networking and marketing. I needed to find hair & makeup artists to work with & find seniors that would be interested in applying!
Meet the ladies with the beauty skills!
I’m so lucky to have found Kathryn, the boss lady at Kathryn Ballard Beauty and Maddie, the rad boss of Hello Nell Co. These two are so talented & kind hearted and I will recommend them to all of my clients and friends for their amazing skills! Kathryn will make you feel so beautiful and you will be glowing after she is done with your makeup! Maddie is so fun and an honest soul that will make you laugh and feel so good about yourself and your hair! These two are absolutely the best to work with and I’ve enjoyed getting to know them in such a short amount of time of living here. It is so encouraging having like-minded creatives and entrepreneurs to share life with as we all chase our dreams and reach our goals!

Applications started coming in!
This was super exciting, since I was in a new town with ZERO connections. I figured my first team would be smaller and that is totally ok, because it would give me more time to love on them and give them an incredible experience! It was a hard decision to choose from since there were some amazing applicants, but I am so happy to introduce Hannah as my first ever spokesmodel to represent CLP! She is a senior at Central High School and is the perfect fit for CLP!
Class of 2019 | Central High School
Not only is Hannah a beautiful young woman, she is also extremely dedicated & hard working. Hannah participates in Speech and Debate (her school ranks #2 in the nation!), the International Baccalaureate program, Botanical society, & Yoga club. On top of all her other activities she spends time babysitting and working at her job. What an exceptional young woman who is working hard to study pre-law in college next year!
my high school besties.
As my first senior spokesmodel (ever!) I wanted to do something really special for Hannah. We did a BFF shoot with two of her closest friends! Hannah and both of her besties each got a gorgeous makeover with professional hair & makeup from Kathryn & Maddie! We planned for several outfits and locations and had THE best time! I hope the memories they made will bring them joy everytime they look at the photos we took that day. I cherish the memories I have of high school and my best friends. We would have loved to do a session back in the day with professional makeup, hair, and a photographer, but thankfully we have the photos from those trusty disposable cameras to look back on! LOL
Look how amazing these girls look! They are so beautiful already, but Kathryn & Maddie made them even more beautiful somehow!
