Getting That Together Look in 3-Minutes or Less!

You have already finished your skin care routine, using the best skin care products on the market today – from Mary Kay of course – and now you only have 3-minutes to get your make-up done for the day.

Not a problem!

Step 1

Simply start with a small amount of concealer under the eyes and on any blemishes. Pat the concealer with your fingertips to make sure it blends into the skin well. Remember to be gentle with the delicate skin around the eyes!

Step 2

For an ‘all-over radiant glow’ is to brush some of Mary Kay’s Bronzing Beads all over the face and neck. Try adding a little more powder to your cheeks to emphasize your beautiful bone structure! Fashion models do this all the time!

Step 3

To ensure a professional yet feminine look for your eyes, smudge a little bit of Mary Kay’s fabulous eye liner or eye shadow onto the outer corner of your eye lids. Don’t forget to finish off with a rich coat of mascara. Your eyes will appear “brighter” in a matter of seconds.

Step 4

Finally, to perfect your look, dab your lips with any one of Mary Kay’s fabulous lip glosses.

Voila! You are now ready to put your best face forward for the day.

Three Easy Steps To Getting Your Closet Together

Less Stress, Frustration and…Dust

Is your closet a nicely organized one or is it one that looks like it has been hit by a tornado?

Everytime you go into your closet you look at the clothes and find yourself saying: “I have to get rid of these, I never wear them”, “It’s been so long since I wore this, maybe tomorrow or “I know I’ll fit into this next summer after I lose weight”.

Do you find yourself having a hard time choosing what to wear?

Are you having trouble finding items in your closet, or worse finding room for all your clothes?

With an organized closet you always find what you want right away – everything flows smoothly and quickly!

A disorganized closet can store a lot more than clothes and shoes. Stress, frustration, anger and a loss-of-patience can also be hiding in there. And don’t forget the dust!

How To Get Started Getting Your Closet Together

Step 1

Would you agree that we generally wear our newest clothes; the clothes that fit us comfortably and the outfits we feel good in? In a disorganized closet, these clothes usually only add up to about 20% of our wardrobe! So why are you keeping the rest? For those “when I lose weight” or “I know I’ll wear it someday” excuses?

A simple way to clear your closet clutter is to first ask yourself:

1. ”Would I buy it again?”
2. “Have I worn it in the past year?”
3. “Does it fit?”
4. “Do I feel fabulous in it?”

Any clothing item that received a “No” answer has got to go!

Step 2

Take it out of your closet and pass it on, with love, to a charity, to a friend or even bring it to a consignment store and have it sold for you. (When giving clothing to a charity, please keep in mind that if you wouldn’t want one of your friends to be seen in that clothing, in public, it might not be suitable for charity either). Eveningwear and/or special-occasion outfits are the only exception to the “one-year” rule.

Step 3

For the items you are keeping:

  • Ensure that outfits can be coordinated with the littlest effort possible. Try to make sure that most of the items remaining in your closet can be paired with at least three other items.
  • Separate your wardrobe into tops, bottoms and jackets so that you can quickly and effortlessly mix and match the items to make a variety of fabulous outfits. If you choose to organize your clothes in this fashion, your closet will appear clean, tidy and full – but not overstuffed! Just imagine how fast and easy getting dressed will be?

Together Tips

  1. Use the same style of hangers throughout your closet and have them facing in the same direction. You’d be surprised at the difference this makes!
  2. What about purses, belts and shoes? How many black bags and black strappy heels does a girl need? That depends on your lifestyle. Just make sure that all handbags, purses, belts and shoes that you keep are in good shape, are comfortable and are in style. A good quality handbag and a pair of shoes can really complete the look of an outfit.
  3. When buying new clothing take out three items from your closet for every new item that is purchased. Why three you ask? Because if your closet is not organized, there are definitely three items that are good to go!

So what are you waiting for? We all know how valuable free time is in today’s world. Free time is time when you are feeling NO STRESS and NO FRUSTRATION – only calmness & confidence!

The more organized your closet is the less stress you will feel. You won’t catch yourself getting frustrated because you can’t find anything in your closet, or because you simply can’t decide what top to wear with what bottom…and then what shoes and purse to match with it!

Organizing your closet can be fun and fulfilling. However, if after reading this article, you just don’t know where to start or it is too overwhelming and you would like some assistance, please contact Rowena here or call (604) 436-6008.

Top 10 Secrets To Success Without Struggle™

Suc-cess (sək-ses)

1. A favorable or desired outcome of something attempted.
2. A successful person, enterprise, etc.
3. Attainment of wealth, etc.

Success is a journey, not a destination.
It takes 25 years to become an overnight success.
—Rowena List

You have heard them all, but what are the TOP secrets to success?

First Steps

Lets find out where YOU are in relationship to these secrets:

  • Take the next few minutes and read through this list.
  • Rank each one from 1 to 10, where 1 is NEVER DO IT/EXPERIENCE IT and10 is THIS IS MY WAY OF LIFE/THIS IS WHO I AM.
  • Note: You can write N/A if it doesn’t apply to you.
1. Be passionate about what you do and you’ll never feel like you are working.
2. Stick to one thing. Too often people give up too soon.
3. Associate with people who have already achieved what you want to achieve. Read motivational books, listen to tapes and attend workshops in your field.
4. Success is comprised of 85% attitude and 15% product knowledge. People want to be around, purchase products from or be serviced by individuals that have a positive, upbeat attitude.
5. Have great time management. A good question to ask yourself is: “Is what I’m doing right now contributing to my goals?” This could be done for business goals or personal goals.
6. Have a balance. Work when you are working and play when you are playing. Never use the word “should”. For example, when you are at the gym don’t say to yourself “I should be working”; and when you are working don’t say “I should be with my kids”. When you have a balance you will not feel torn.
7. Fake it till you make it. People want to be around successful people. So when you are starting off in business you need to “act & feel” your way to success.
8. Walk the walk & talk the talk. Be true to yourself. Successful people do what they say they are going to do.
9. Be a master with money management. If you are not an expert in this area then hire someone to help you out. Learn all you can about money & finances.
10. Have a mission, purpose and goals.

Next Steps

Now that you have ranked them all, take a look at the numbers.

  • For your 10’s, ask yourself: “What am I doing that makes this so easy?“
  • For the 9’s ask yourself: “What one thing could I do to bring these up to a 10?“
  • Then, choose one that has the lowest number and see what you can do TODAY to raise it up even one notch.
