Soooo.... I recently accepted a position with CARGO Cosmetics to travel to stores in the Rochester and Syracuse areas training beauty advisors, planning events, boosting sales & doing makeovers. I never intended to go back to work outside of the home. I have been so lucky to be able to work from home all these years. I have a thriving Jamberry Nails business and team of 115 women. I enjoy writing, however with the exception of my freelance work for (seed) Body Care, I don't feel a passion for it anymore.

Nick is settled at his new school, Ben is a happy-go-lucky 4th grader, and I -- well, I can get a little lonely, even hermit-like when the fall and winter hits. I was thinking about my work before kids came along. I loved working in the skincare and cosmetics industry. It was fun and creative and something I truly have enjoyed doing, writing about, reading about & thinking about forever.

Out of curiosity one day a few weeks back, I stumbled upon a job listing for 15 hours a week freelancing for CARGO. I was intrigued, as I was a fan of their former Plant Love line and I clearly remember buying my first CARGO lipstick in 1998 at Eaton's in Toronto. The shade was Copenhagen, which has been discontinued.

Anyway, I decided to write to the person who was hiring to see if it would even have the flexibility I was looking for -- no nights, pick my own hours, etc. It did. I interviewed over the phone and was hired last Monday.

I started Thursday and truly enjoy it and feel at home with my makeup brushes swirling across strangers' faces once again.

You'll be seeing more posts about CARGO from me with tutorials and images soon!
