Last May, at the beginning of the pandemic; made a concerted effort to rebuild my life ๐Ÿงฐ. Hated my bull๐Ÿคฌ corporate job & longed 4๏ธโƒฃ something to bring back my creative side ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐ŸŽจ.

Sitting down to color my hair ๐Ÿ‘ฑ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ for the first time in months, thought to grab my iPad & film ๐ŸŽฅ. As a result, created my first YouTube video. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Being a YouTube subscriber since 2008; longingly watched ๐Ÿ’ป many of the now famous influencers ๐Ÿคฉ.

  • Nikkie Tutorials
  • Jackie Aina
  • Wayne Goss
  • Alicia Ashley
  • Kandee Johnson
  • Savannah Sylver
  • Pixiwoo/Real Techniques

Listened as each recalled their “Rebuild Your Life” story๐Ÿคน๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ.

As a makeup artist, watching those low budget ๐Ÿคญ tutorials, I yearned to create my own ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ. However, video editing was not as simple as it is today๐Ÿฅณ


Staring into the tiny iPad camera lens, I was crazy nervous ๐Ÿฅต but confident in what I was saying ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ! Put my shy nature aside, took it back old school ๐Ÿ˜Ž by filming on my bed & just did it. Ultimately, what I had been terrified of ๐Ÿ‘ป for over 1๏ธโƒฃ0๏ธโƒฃ years was easier than I thought ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ.

Spent the remainder of 2020 learning EVERYTHING ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿซ about creating content & building a family/audience ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ. Consequently, have been on a steep learning ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐ŸŽ“ curve of video editing, website building, social media education & promotion.

All while being a single mother of an 8๏ธโƒฃ year old ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿฝ with ADHD. Having to help him learn virtually ๐Ÿ’ป for the first time & figuring out medication ๐Ÿ’Š โž• therapy ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€โš•๏ธ. It has been exhausting ๐Ÿฅด but in some ways FUN ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ!


Rebuild Your Life Month 2021, has me thinking about the many ideas ๐Ÿ’ก to move AB-FAB Designs forward ๐Ÿ”ฎ.

  • Posting & Content Consistency ๐Ÿ“…
  • Audience Interaction ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿฝ
  • Influencer Partnerships ๐Ÿค
  • Cultural Moments ๐ŸŒŽ
  • Educational Experiences ๐ŸŽ“
  • Expanding Personal/Corporate Services ๐Ÿ’ฃ

With the world still so uncertain ๐Ÿ˜ท, the next 6 months will be finding true joy ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒˆโ˜€๏ธโฃ๏ธ. Remembering FEAR ๐Ÿ˜ฌ & doing what others expect is NO WAY TO LIVE!

That’s what kept me in corporate America ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿ’ผ for 20 years to long ๐Ÿ˜ฉ. I now know self reflection ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ โž• self care ๐Ÿ›€๐Ÿฝ IS my future & the future of AB-FAB Designs ๐Ÿ’ฏ.
