Over 40 Fashion Blogger, Tania Stephens is enjoying working in Rosemary Beach, FL

I could get used to working from the beach!!! On Tuesday, my Energizer Bunny Friend and I flew to Rosemary Beach, Fl., to meet up with some of my Rodan + Fields gal pals. We decided that watching the new R+F product reveal would be even more fun if we were all together, and Rosemary Beach is our favorite destination.

This tiny nook at the end of our hall was my favorite place. Each morning I would stake claim to one of the chaise loungers and get some work done before everyone got up and stirred. When you have a house of 16 women, it can get LOUD!!! I loved my morning quiet time, and the nook provided a great view as I worked.

These wonderful women on my Rodan + Fields team made the trip, and the rest of the team joined us for the product reveal via ZOOM. ZOOM is a great way to stay in touch with our family and friends, and it is a perfect way for our team to get together. The great thing is, I didn’t know two of these ladies until they joined me in this business, and now they are two of my best friends.

This is my Energizer Bunny Friend, who is my bestie. She and I might be twenty years apart in age, but we are so much alike in so many ways. A lot of the women flew to Florida like we did, but most of them didn’t pack TWO suitcases full of clothes; some of the ladies only brought a carry-on suitcase. Lol!

Rodan + Fields is the skincare line that I started using in 2016, right after I started my blog. I was working on a 27″ Mac Computer, and seeing my face on that huge screen made me cringe. I called my EBF and told her I wanted to try the skincare line she was using. I hand her cash and said, “you order it, I don’t want to become a customer.” After I used the product for a couple of months, I was hooked. I had tried lots and lots of skincare lines, and this was the first one that I could see a visible difference in my skin. I called my friend again and told her I wanted to become a consultant so I could get the products at the best possible price. However, I told her that I was never going to sell the products, and she was fine with that.

I am a believer in Rodan + Fields products, and I’ve watched my skin change over the years. I’ll be honest; I’m not always a fan of every product that R+F comes out with. Everyone’s skin is different, so I try the product and decide for myself which ones work the best for me.

Yesterday, Rodan + Fields launched into a brand new category…Hair Care. I have my order placed, and I’m looking forward to trying it. My daughter has hair issues, so she is really excited to get her hands on the new products. The products look amazing, and I’m sure that R+F will do the same for hair as they’ve done for skin care. I have samples coming my way, so make sure you leave a comment if you have hair issues. I know that a lot of women suffer from thinning hair as we age, so I have my fingers crossed that these products will make a difference.

The products won’t be available to customers until Nov. 1st, but you can grab them now by joining me in business. I hardly ever mention the business side of Rodan + Fields, but I love the business as much as I love the products. The business is how I’ve met so many of my readers who are now business partners and how I’ve earned tons of gifts like my Dyson Hairdryer, my David Yurman Bracelet, and my recent Palm Springs trip. I’ve received all that while getting the best skincare at the best possible price and also earning a commission.

If you’re intrigued by all this, or if you think working on the beach sounds like a dream come true, then shoot me an email, and I’ll give you the 411 on all things R+F.

If you are interested in trying the skincare I use, I’m going to make you a fantastic deal. New (I’ll also reimburse your one-time enrollment 19.95 fee) and existing PCs will receive a $20 rebate for each $100.00 order. Example: If your order (before taxes) is $125, your rebate will be $20 back. If your order (before taxes) is $225, your rebate will be $40 back. This offer is good through the end of the month. I will send out the rebate checks in the first week of November.

Here is how you order. First, take the Solutions Tool, which will give you the best recommendations for you based on your skin and what type of results you want. Next, you pick the products you want to order, put them in your cart, and go to checkout. To become my Preferred Customer, where you will receive FREE SHIPPING and a 10% discount on every order placed over $80, click the JOIN PC PERKS box. Fill out your billing and shipping info, and don’t forget to hit the Place Order button. (You would be surprised at how many forget that step.)

  44. Congrats to the latest winners Deanna and Carla!

  45. Congrats to gift card winners. The beach looks beautiful!

  46. Very interested in the new hair line. Mid 50s has my skin dry and dull and my air too. I’m using R+F skincare trying to find what works for me. Now I’m on the hunt for great haircare.

  47. Tisha Johnston says:

    The beach makes everything better!🏖

  48. I too have thinning hair. I will be interested to see if their new haircare line can really help grow new thicker hair. I take collagen daily and use a prescription lash growth product. My nails look great now and my lashes do too but so far no noticeable effect on my hair.

  49. Beth Crawford says:

    I’m interested in the hair care line. My hair is natural wavy to curly, I have a lot of hair but it is fine. I have to be careful what I use or it drys my hair out and makes it less wavy and curly. I do not color my hair so it’s in good condition. Please tell us what you have coming for this issue. I’m sure there are many gals with the same issues.
    That you for everything you do for us !

  50. Gina Luebke says:

    Congratulations Ladies! And what a fun trip!!
