Hi guys, I hope you’re all keeping safe and well? I’ve been so super busy; I haven’t written a blog post in what feels like FOREVER! But with all this free time on my hands now (damn you ‘Rona!) I’ve decided to jump back into it and keep you all up to date and in the know about all the treatments I have to offer.
But, I thought I’d bore you all a little bit first and give you a little insight into me, my family and my life. So, for anyone who doesn’t know me or hasn’t yet come to see me in my little beauty room, I hope this gives you a little insight into your beautician before your appointment.
So, Hi, I’m Kimberley!
I’m 29 years old (slightly terrified at the thought of turning 30!), I’m married to my lovely husband Ian and we’ve been together for 8 years (haven’t killed him yet, so we’re all good)! We have two GORGEOUS children together, a little girl called Poppy, who is 3, and our crazy, monster of a little boy, Noah, who is 2. Yes, we had them very close together. Yes, I thought it was a good idea at the time. Yes, I am mad. But, my babies are my world and I wouldn’t change a single thing! My daughter is super bright, caring and compassionate. Equally she is also a super sassy pants and comes out with the funniest things. My son is on a whole different level! He’s funny, sweet and a cheeky so and so. He’s also destruction in human form. No room, object or cat is safe from this little terror and he keeps us on our toes each and every day. That being said, he is also the cuddliest little boy and gives the sweetest kisses and cuddles too. We also live with our 3 very vocal, very beautiful, Bengal cats.
So, pre-corona, obviously I ran For Keeps Beauty and completed all your lovely beauty treatments. As well as being a beautician, I am also an Ofsted registered childminder and previously to that, I worked 10 and a half years in food retail, in various managerial roles. Due to the Coronavirus, I have also taken on a part time job, back in food retail, whilst I’m unable to pamper you all! I literally cannot wait to pick up a microblade and my lash tweezers again!!!
I opened For Keeps Beauty after having my own eyebrows microbladed back in 2018. I remember that moment, looking in the mirror after the treatment and being completely in awe of my new, make-up free eyebrows. They were absolutely perfect, and I couldn’t believe, after years of rubbish eyebrows, that these were mine! I then decided I wanted to help everyone feel this way. I wanted to help everyone feel more confident in their appearance, not just their eyebrows. Since then, I’ve attended numerous training courses, completed loads of online training and I am constantly reading and practising to learn and grow more! I’ve seriously found something I truly love doing and really am so happy I chose to pursue this career.
I now offer so many wonderful treatments. I love microblading and will soon be expanding and adding ombre brows, powder brows and combination brows to my permanent make-up portfolio. I also offer different skin treatments, including dermaplaning and microneedling and hope to keep adding to my skin clinic more and more. I offer henna brows and also offer lash extensions and lash lift and tints too. As you can see, I’ve invested a lot of time and effort into my training and expanding my knowledge and I absolutely love it. I love learning new treatments, new techniques or new ways in which to offer you the best treatments and achieve the very best results for you.
I won’t bore you anymore but there’s a little bit about me, my family and my beauty passion and business. So, next time you visit at least you will feel like you know your beautician a little better. I honestly cannot wait to see you all again in my little beauty room really soon. Remember you can find me inside Beauty Academy South East, in Sittingbourne high street.
Any questions, or if you’d like to book in for a telephone or video consultation during lockdown, then please just head over to my “Contact” page and send me a message. You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram at “For Keeps Beauty”
Look forward to seeing you all really soon!
