Let's talk about routines. I'll be the first one to say that starting a new routine can be hard at first and definitely takes some discipline. But once you get in the habit, it becomes second nature. For me, I have my morning routine set down to the minute, which I admit may be partly so I can sleep in as late as possible. But when a full eight hours isn’t possible, Olay Fresh Effects delivers the look of beauty sleep in an instant.

Olay Fresh Effects {Out of This Swirled!} Deep Pore Clean + Exfoliating Scrub is a moisture rich facial cleanser with a gel swirl of small exfoliating beads. When applying the cleanser, it easily lathers up into a nice foam and washes away all the dirt from the day. The exfoliating factor is quite refreshing and gentle enough to be used daily, to help purify and deep clean.

So no matter if you're starting a new job, going back to school or just getting back into your morning routine, Olay Fresh Effects is there for you with instant beauty sleep, no sleep required. Many of their products are infused with the essence of honeysuckle and white tea – a detox recipe that gives skin a refreshed look in order to face the day, from late nights to early mornings.

on to a new adventure

As I write this, I'm sitting at a seemingly bare desk at the amphitheater, the same music pavilion I've spent 5 long seasons working at. My job here has had it's ups and downs, just as much as many people's do. I've spent countless long hours here..I've laughed, cried, yelled, and of course jammed out to the many artists that we've had perform here. 

I was really thrown into the music business, and as I've come to find, most people in this industry are. I'm thankful for all of the experiences (good & bad) I've had here, thankful to have been offered an internship and then after that, a job right after graduating. Never in a thousand years would I have thought this is where I would be today, but that's half the fun isn't it? We really don't know what our future holds, but I would like to think that mine can only go up from here.

I've prayed long and hard about my decision to move on from here..weighing the options with God. Is this the right decision? Change is hard, terrifying actually. But I don't doubt my strength in being able to step out of my comfort zone and move on to a bigger and better opportunity.

A lesson that I am continuing to learn each day, is that God works things out in his perfect time. Just when I felt like everything was falling apart, when I had had countless bad days and sadly found myself being bitter, I got the answer I was looking for; the answer I had been praying for.

In a way, I'm a bit sad to be moving on. Leaving the first job I had out of college. But I know that the future is bright and it's time to start something new, trust in the Lord and enjoy the magic of a new beginning. I'm blessed and humbled to be given this job opportunity which, excitingly enough, keeps me in the same crazy, fast-paced industry.

I know that my updates have been few and far between, but I'm excited and hopeful that I will be able to keep you all updated, on this new beginning I'm about to embark on. So please stick around!
