Welcome To My Happy Place :-)

I started working on my website having absolutely no idea what I was doing. I honestly had no clue what a blog even was! All I knew is that blogging was a creative outlet that made me feel good. It was also a way for me to heal after a painful breakup, becoming an empty-nester, and struggling to find "create myself." Beauty101byLisa quickly evolved into everything that I love and believe in. I started feeling inspired and passionate about just being myself and letting it all out. I have learned so much and overcame so many insecurities. This became "my happy place" and I decided to share my journey with the world on my 45th birthday, November 1, 2013. I hope that I can inspire others to embrace the beauty within yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others, you need to accept yourself <3

WORK & VOLUNTEER: For most of my life I worked in Media Sales/Marketing and Graphic Design. I also went to hairdressing school and worked as a makeup artist in the 80's & 90's. Although I have not worked in the industry for many years, I still have a passion for helping women look and feel beautiful. For three years I volunteered for the American Cancer Society & Look Good Feel BetterI helped teach women with cancer beauty techniques to help them deal with the appearance related side effects of treatment. 

There are unlimited cosmetic tricks to improve your physical appearance, however beauty is so much more than how you look. Being beautiful starts with the love that you have for yourself and the love that you share with other people. You will look and feel more physically beautiful when you are full of love and happiness. Let your beauty shine from the inside out...

I share my own beauty routine, along with tips and tricks for haircareskincaremakeup ,  fashion & personal styleI open up about personal life experiences, including my own struggle of surviving a near death accident and dealing with chronic painI share my journey of starting over after divorce and creating a new life for myself after raising my three amazing childrenI share inspirational thoughts and positive ideas for increasing happiness, moving forward, and loving your beautiful life. Plus my favorite hobbies, Photography, Interior Design / Organizing  and  DIY Refashioning Clothes. 

Thank you for visiting :-)
