Hello and welcome to Pampered Daughter Thrifty Wife!
I’m Sarah a Cosmetologist, a Shaklee Distributor, a Dance Instructor, a Wife and a mother of one and another on the way. I enjoy all aspects of beauty from my son’s blue eyes to a nice clean home to the perfect shade of lip gloss.
What’s the story behind the name?
Pampered Daughter is exactly what it means. I grew up practically as an only child. I have a half-brother from my father, who is 10 years older. We only lived together until I was 7. I was very fortunate to have parents that gave and did everything for me. They still do. I was able to participate in everything I was interested. I loved dancing, riding horses, figure skating and cheerleading. Most of those I’ve had a career in!
Thrifty Wife is the reality of getting married and becoming responsible. I came to realize that I just can’t afford all the luxuries I use to have. I have to work for them. My husband has always worked for what he has and I have adopted most of his ways of being “thrifty”.
My first job I was a Professional Figure Skating Coach. Oh do I still miss it! In the middle of that career I went to college. Ok I went to many colleges LOL! I have many interests and I couldn’t focus on one! I started as a fashion design student in Chicago. I then transferred to a community college for fashion design and fell in love with fitness instead. I transferred to another community college for personal training. I was half finished and transferred to Western Illinois University for exercise science. I had one more year left and transferred back home to finish personal training. WOW! That’s a lot of transferring!!
When I came back home I continued to teach skating and I got another job as a dance instructor. This is when I met my husband! That’s a cute story in itself. After we married I decided I needed something more. I had always had in interest in hair since my mom had a successful salon when I was growing up. I decided this was the time to pursue it. Little did I know I would be pregnant 2 weeks after signing the contract! I almost finished in 9 months but 1 year is still very fast! I now rent a station at my mom’s salon. I get to work when I want to! I still get to raise my son without him being in daycare while I work. It’s great!
