Happy Birthday, Jake!

Dear Jake,

You know when you look back on your life and realize that there was a certain event that was a turning point for you, your purpose, your life? An event that made everything fall into place and gave your life meaning?

That moment for me was when I had you. My perspective changed from selfish to serving. I could see my own heart living and breathing outside my own body. It was thrilling, it was terrifying, it filled me with love and it hurt at the same time.  I knew with each birth that the special moments we shared being one body would never be the same. They would change day to day and I would never be able to hold on to those special moments that ran through my fingers like water. So fast, you've grown so damn fast.  I never thought 17 years could pass in a blink of an eye, but here I am, the mother of a 17 year old boy. A man, you tell me. 

Yesterday afternoon you listed all the things you can now do without me or my permission: buy spray paint (the son of a crafter for sure!),  go to a rated R movie, get married, work full time... The list went on and on.  I laughed with you, but it hurt my heart too, because I know that in order to do this job right you have to leave me.  You has to go out into the world and buy spray paint for yourself! 

I think about how fast the last 17 years has passed and I'm not ready. I'm not ready for you to buy spray paint yet! I have such a short time left with you before you goes off to college and every day that passes is one more day down.  If 17 years went by in a blink, what am I supposed to do with a year and a half left?? Will my heart swell as you set off on your own or will it break?

This little baby I held in my arms (you) gave my life purpose. I was put on this earth to create and raise you 3 beautiful boys and it all started with you, my first one. You let me know I could do it and were patient with me as I learned.  I love with all my heart. 

Happy birthday, Jaker Baker, I am so proud God chose me to be your mom and you to be my son. You make me proud every day and I cannot wait to see what life has in store for your next 17 years.




Skincare Sunday - Tools for Christmas!

I have a ton of customers adding tools to their wish lists this Christmas!  Rather than a trip to the spa every week for facials, masks or extraction treatments have the tools at your fingertips at home.

Each of these tools help accelerate the effectiveness of the regimens.

The Macro Exfoliator is a  rechargeable device that uses a diamond tip and gentle suction to exfoliate dead skin cells from your skin once a week.  As always, Rodan+Fields advertising budget is $0, yet we still get tons of press from beauty editors that try it and like it!

The AMP MD Roller is our answer to the treatment called micro-needling.  What does micro-needling do? It's a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to create a superficial puncture in the skin to create a controlled skin injury.  The skin, in turn, increases production of collagen and elastin in that area resulting in improved skin texture and appearance, and a reduction in scars, pore size and stretch marks.

Coty Yagatich incorporated tools into her regimens and had results after 2 months of consistent use:

Tammy Cofield used just the Amp Md along with Reverse, Microdermabrasion Paste, and Eye Cream:

Right now, a regimen bundle including a tool is reduced by 20% for the collection. 
Put great skin on your Christmas list!
