Thanks again to everyone that's contributed to this series thus far . Today we're gonna learn a bit more about one of our #favs. Victoria has been rocking with #TeamModen for years and we appreciate her support. " Writer . Artist. Educator. Makeup Enthusiast. Blogger and Planner ". Victoria has many interests and talents. FYI: She's also a lawyer who loves dance and nail polish πŸ˜€ How are you balancing the new business, your day job and finding time for your hobbies? Between my jobs it is certainly a challenge, but I guess I’m always up for a good one! I think one of the keys to balance is good time management which I continue to work on. Generally though, my day job comes first, and then I make specific time for some of my hobbies like dancing, so I know what is happening on a particular day/time, and go from there.

I’m not sure that my dressmaking process has changed per se’ since Covid.

#LiveWithFive featuring Jenai Sealey

 I've been waxing poetic about Jenai since 2014 . She knows her stuff. She discourages me from chasing skincare fads πŸ˜‚ Most importantly, she's passionate about her job. If you've ever heard me mention my wife, this is my wife's excuse the explicit bias. That said, I pay for my services. FYI: Jenai has developed her own skincare rage: Daylilies Skin . As an extension of Daylilies Beauty , this fragrance free line helps you maintain your post professional treatment results. What’s your favourite area to work in: hair, nails or skin?
