My name is Frances Esters aka The Elegant Tomboy. You can find me refurbishing and re-purposing furniture, hiking out in the redwoods or helping others learn all about self care or teaching makeup tips and tricks. I’m just as comfortable playing with power tools as makeup hence the reason I was deemed The Elegant Tomboy by a friend many years ago.
I was born and raised in San Jose, CA and always said I may have been born a city girl but I’m a country girl at heart. I now live on a farm in Templeton, CA. Being out in nature especially hiking through trees has always been my happy place. Walking among redwoods and the ocean has always inspired me to see the beauty in everyone and thing. As a typical libra my days are filled with bringing balance (with a side of indecisiveness) and beauty to the world. I went to college for Interior Design because I’ve always understood you are a product of your environment. A cluttered unorganized space creates a chaotic unorganized mind. A well designed space allows a productive flow of energies and a calmer mind. From work, to home our environment and how we interact with those spaces determines every aspect of our life.
For the last 20 something years I have worked in many environments, wearing many hats all to learn how to best help others become their best selves. From merchandising big box retailers, real estate and loan agent, managing a medical cannabis dispensary to managing spas, every hat allowed me to learn how people want and need to be helped to live confidently.
Today I am an Independent Consultant with Arbonne International helping woman and men not only take control over their self care to live healthy lifestyles but give them the same opportunity that was given to me and that is to build a business that can bring financial security all while helping others to be their best. My other hat I wear is helping to manage Central Coast Medical Aesthetics. A full service medical spa that prides itself on building confidence and helping woman and men to look in the mirror and love what they see. Teaching that being confident in your appearance is not a bad trait. When we know who we are and not afraid to show who we are and the unique talents we posses we help make this world a better place.
I always sign off with Carpe Diem. You more than likely see this as Seize the day, however it’s an agricultural term meaning to pluck. It refers when the fruit is ripe pluck it. I apply this to life as when the opportunity is present grab it! So when you read my blog know I am encouraging you to grab your best self and live out loud. As Henry Thoreau famously said, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you have imagined.”
