A new business venture....{and giveaway!!}

Well y'all, I can't wait to share today a biggg leap I made last week. This is something I did not take lightly and I thought about it a long, long time. Let me give you some background on me to start. My sweet mother-in-law owns an adorable gift and book {and clothing!} shop here in our town and I have been the manager for the last five years. I seriously, love my job. We go to market a few times a year, are always scouting the newest and best, and have a really fun working environment. It has been extremely wonderful to have a flexible environment while having a little one. I used to work five days a week, and now I am "in the office" a few and working from home the other days. That job is not going anywhere, it is a dream job really. 

Let's switch gears. One thing I have really started to pay attention to over the last year is my skincare. I swear, once I turned the big 3-0 it was like I started noticing tiny baby wrinkles more and more. Being a tired Mommy doesn't help either ;) The ONE thing I have used in the past year that yielded amazing results was the Rodan and Fields line. There are four regimens for all sorts of skin needs and everyone can find one they fall into and see major results. I chose the reverse and it has been the one thing that has impacted my skin's appearance. 

(after about 6 weeks of reverse I could really tell a difference in my skin tone)

I eventually ran out of my regimen and have missed it since {I do not recommend this! Totally pinching myself for letting that happen} Several months later, a good girlfriend from college contacted me asking if I had ever thought about the opportunity to be a consultant for the line. This was at Christmas, I was in the midst of big renovation projects and there was no way I was tacking that on my plate! Fast forward several months later, my Mom mentions to me she ordered Rodan and Fields {redefine regimen} and was excited to start seeing some results. For whatever reason, right around the same time was when I started re-thinking the whole consultant thing. After a good long nine months or so of thinking, I just decided to go for it. What do I have to lose? I made a small investment that I think will turn into something I can be proud of and work for, all at the same time helping others with their skin and my own. Win-win. Now, like I said, my management/buyer/merchandising job is not going anywhere- this is simply something I can do to fill in with extra pockets of time. And, lets be real, I will always want to provide for my family, and any way I can help to do that is extremely satisfying. I am considering myself very lucky to have two flexible jobs right now and still be able to spend time with my son and husband!


So, I am ready to jumpstart this business and really help others. HERE is my website :) Skin problems, wrinkles, blemishes, uneven skin? We can help. Please note prices on the site are retail, and when you sign up to be a preferred customer you are getting a discount, which I can discuss with you! HERE is a great site to see REAL results. You will absolutely have results with Rodan + Fields. I am NOT a fan of gimmicky sales things so please do not doubt me y'all, I swear! The team I am working under has been so helpful getting me started, there for every question and need. I know some people do these kinds of things just to sign someone on, but that is not the case here. If you are thinking about this kind of business at all, please message me!!! Here is a small example of why I joined this team. This is the former CEO of Smashbox Cosmetics and she is now in charge of her own R and F business. That's insane y'all! Here is what Rose Gall-Rojas has to say:  

"I'm not saying normal is bad. I'm saying it's not all there is. I am thankful for change. Here's my new normal: No boss, no long commute, no glass ceiling, no office politics, no pink slips, no working through lunch at my desk, no 60-hour work weeks. I work to live instead of live to work, I vacation when I want, not when my boss says I can, I'm providing a will-able asset for my kids, I will retire worry-free, I give back in a bigger way than before, I volunteer for causes that I'm close to, I help others create the same thing for themselves and their families, and I'm happier."


Of course, don't worry nothing is really going to change on Miss Dixie. I love this little space I have created and can't thank y'all enough for returning to read each post. It really means so much to me. I promise it won't be changing, and I will wait for your feedback on what you would like to hear about in regards to R and F,  and there will be a button on my sidebar, and I might mention some great deals ever so often! 

SO....In order to celebrate this new venture, I am doing a giveaway {duh, of course!} The giveaway is a set of 2 mini facials- one for you, one for a friend. Each facial includes a microdermabrasion packet, night renewing serum and lip renewing serum. The microdermabrasion is one of my favorite things ever! Please see below and feel free to email me with any comments or questions!!!

eeek pick me! I've been wanting to try R&F for forever! As much as I try to stay out of the sun, years of summers at the beach have left sun spots. And I want to prevent wrinkles now while I can!

Love the #girlboss! It sounds like BOTH your gigs are awesome and allow the perfect balance. I am so bad about skincare, I really need to start some kind of routine now before it's too late!!!!

I've really been wanting to try these products, but don't have a consultant in my area. I also recently turned 30, so its time that I really start taking care of my skin.
