Day 2

hmmm... this is funny. I am so well rested(by comparison) I cannot focus.
So, I can't focus well when I am overtired, and I can't focus well when I am rested...?
How many days of good nights sleep an enough work hours in a day testing do I need to find the balance?? Who knows!
Fell asleep at 7:30 last night on the couch, stayed up until midnight, read until 1 and got up at 7:30am...

well, we will see!

Do you have any stories about trying to change your natural sleep patterns?
Tell me ! Tell me!

At the store we are selling a lot of curly hair stuff and Purple juice.... magic for hair, magic for skin! Ask me if you have questions!
We are going dancing 80's style! Early bed? Not! C U tomorrow!

Day 1

So, today is day one of a "get up earlier in the morning, so I can go to bed earlier instead of working or watching dumb TV until later" challenge.
Don't get me wrong, I like the mornings, the light is pretty the quiet is inspiring etc. I just HATE that the early morning comes well, so damned early! I have been a night owl since forever so therefore getting up early does not work. Getting up at 7:30 is enough time for me to get up, stumble around until the coffee is made and get my son's lunch made and him out the door dressed and fed. Ever since I was up and about after my mastectomy last year(early March I was up regularly after 2 weeks in bed) I have been pushing the getting up angle as far as I can.
Now, I can get up at 8, get coffee, get my son up, out dressed etc on time. I work for 2 hours at home after that and then head to the store for the day. I rarely get home before 6:45, and 3 days a week I don't get home until 9. Somewhere in there I get both of us fed, we each workout 2-4 times a week, and I pretend I know how to keep a clean house. I usually get my son to bed by 10pm, unless Colin and Justin are on and then I start work again. I work effectively until about 11:30, and then I convince myself I work effectively while working, watching reruns of House and Numbers until 1 am and then I stumble around trying to get to bed... and then it's suddenly 2 am...
Going to bed without everything done feels like failure to me, so I push the envelope as hard as I can but realistically I could stay up 24 hours a day for the next year and never get caught up on everything that needs doing in my business or my life.
So, today is Day 1 of getting up at 6:45 am, in the hope that getting up earlier will help me soooo exhausted by midnight that I get to bed earlier and have more hours in the day to get more work done. Let's see how I do! So Far, I feel like crap... more tomorrow..

oops missed a question

Here is part two of a comment from a blog reader.

Do you find the curly hair will look great for awhile, and then for no reason just be flat and limp, even though the hair products have not changed?

Well, actually no. I don't find that.
Are you using curly hair products from ellenoire?
If so, you are doing something incorrectly which I can fix just get in touch.

If you are using a product with silicone or petroleum/ mineral oil in it then this may be the issue.
Let me know if I can help get you onto some products better suited to you!
I would love to help.
Happy Monday everyone!

Deva Dryer and DevaFuser info

In response to a comment yesterday about the DevaFuser I am going to tell you all about the fantastic DevaChan Salon line of products.
Many of my customers use the Deva line of hair products for their curly and Coloured hair. Deva is a line of hair products originally made for curly hair. The DevaDryer and DevaFuser products are the newest tools in this product line.

Deva products are silicone free, sulphate free and petroleum free. The Deva philosophy teaches curly hair client to fall in love with the hair they were born with from wavy to curly Deva is for you! At ellenoire, both online and in the boutique our staff is trained to teach the Deva way and we will do everything we can to help you have the best hair you have ever had! (Deva has a product for all hair types, just get in touch and we will set you up.. curly or not!)

Now, the DevaSunDryer is the patented DevaCurl hair dryer. It is a hair dryer with the DevaFuser included as a Diffuser type attachment. This is NOT like any diffuser you have ever used! The DevaFuser is a newly designed diffuser that allows air to blow 365 degrees around to dry your hair faster without making frizz or disturbing your natural curls. The combo of Dryer and Diffuser is AMAZING!!! The DevaSunDryer could dry my waist length super curly curls in 15 minutes!!! Totally worth trying! Come by the store if you can and see it for yourself.

You can buy the hair dryer with the diffuser or just buy the diffuser to attach to your own dryer. The DevaFuser will fit 99% of dryers and can turn your hair dryer into your friend!

The DevaSunDryer and DevaFuser are magical add ons to using the DevaCurl and DevaCare lines.
