The Beard Comb

I lost my brush when I was in Utah....this seem to happen about once every 6 months. Either I lose my brush in one of my purses, my car, or I lose it in the house...sometimes it shows up and sometimes it doesnt.

Last week when I got back from Utah I realized I didn't bring my brush with me (and it was my very last one I had-the other 2 I'd lost a year ago).

So I was subjected to using this to "brush" my hair with.
Meet Tristin's Beard Comb.
Yes, he DOES actually own one of these
Yes, it IS the size of your index finger, No joke!
Yes, it took about 20 minutes to comb my entire head of hair
And yes, I DID use it to comb my hair with for 6 straight days (pun intended).

But don't worry, I bought a BRIGHT PINK brush (and it's matching little sister for my purse) so that I wouldn't lose another brush again
(hahaha-blasphemy! I'll TOTALLY lose this one too!)

it feels good to moving up in the world again.

Valentines day (blog #2)

Tristin LOVES Zombies...he's slightly obsessive about them.


...this is the song I dedicated to him for Valentines day. This was HIS Valentines Day "gift" from me to him.

We don't really have a very traditional relationship, as you can tell....


BTW, I LOVED his valentines day gift to me! It was so perfect! I laughed so hard!

I adore that man!

A (Slightly Early) Valentine's Day Gift

I made a stupid little Valentine's Day gift for Juanique, and I'm too ashamed to actually print it out (such a thing should not be allowed to exist in the physical world). So this seems like the best place to make sure she sees it. (Deep breath) Here it is!

Happy Valentine's Day, Babe! You are the best lover ever. Thanks for being perfect for me.


PS- Bonus tip: click on the picture to get a full-size version to print out for your own valentine special person! You're welcome.

So, I did it you guys! It's done. I grew some guts and stood my ground!

I quit my secure job to pursue something that was exciting and terrifying at the same time!

I became my own boss! WHY? And WHAT THE H*** was I thinking?
Because being your own boss is WAY better than being bossed around. Also because I realized that the perpetual headaches, bimonthly migraines, and severe body aches were directly correlated to my stress levels...something had to give.
There was a reason as to why all these health issues would go away when ever we visited Utah. It was far to consistent to be coincidental!

So I created (with Tristin) Soulistique! I took a leap of faith, closed some doors in my life, allowed for new ones to open and now I am the proud (and terrified) owner of Soulistique Bodywork!

What is my plan now? Well:
1) I've started my practice already. My website is
2) spoken with a local Dr's office who is contracting me on as their new massage therapist in their office (how we crossed paths was a miracle in itself!! I'm telling you, doors are opening!), and
3) for one week out of every month I'll be traveling down to Utah to work on patients as well as do some business with my mom's company as I try to promote her products here in Colorado.

So if you, or anyone you know, want to get bodywork done while I'm in town, let me know and we can arrange that!

"Trust more, fear less". I've embodied this saying over the past couple of weeks.

Yes, I know it's going to be hard and slow in the beginning, Yes, I know it's going to be tough, BUT I think my health, happiness, and sanity are well worth it! Don't you?

WISH US LUCK! (and your prayers are always nice as well)

Love, Juanique Tristin
