My Mom always told me that I’d “fall into a career,” and I did… but I think this one picked me. This crazy career of mine has blossomed […]


Groupon & Permanent Makeup

About once a month, one of my clients, friends or family members gleefully comes up with the notion that I should offer a Permanent Makeup Groupon.
