Especially My Mum!

My mum is in all honesty my greatest fan. What ever I seem to do she is there to cheer me on and encourage me to the point of never giving up.

At Rainbow Skys Naturally my poor mum is my guinea pig… (altho I’m sure she loves it) for the things that I create go her way for testing. (She is very truthful but maybe a little bias as well).

But… yes the but… my mum has been using skin care and pamper products for as long as I can remember, (she taught me lots, once being a beautician herself) using top brands and lots of expensive stuff and altho these have been great… my mum is now also my best customer.

She adores what I do, Thanks mum, but also backs it and loves it!

Even when I thought I may give up, my mum said “you can’t, everything is so good, and then where am I going to get my products?” Haha

So I don’t give up, I take all the goodness from my mums love and keep creating and moving forward with love.

This is just one thing that stands out to me about my mum and I Thank her to the core for all the encouragement, confidence and support that she provides me on my path! (My mum is like the railings on a path. Love you mum!)

And a big hearty “Happy Mothers Day” to all!
