April Photo a Day – Something I don’t like

There are lots of things I don’t like. Mushrooms and mean people. I also don’t like graffiti unless it is done for the sake of art. I pretty sure the people who “tag” our walls aren’t thinking of beautifying our neighborhood. I am off track… today I am really not liking doing the dishes. Every time I turn around there is more even after I have just washed them all. When I posted this photo a friend of mine on twitter saw the bright colored plates. I think that is fun she noticed the color and not the actual “act” of dishes.

17. Something you don’t like – doing dishes (maybe I should just say “house work”)

Something you don't like - Doing Dishes

Well, in the same sense of not liking something, buying gas is right up there.  The amount of money it takes to fill up my car is getting crazy. Here are some tips to help get better gas mileage: plan your trips out, make sure your tires have enough air, keep your car in good maintenance, drive 5-10 mph under the speed limit (or in my case drive the speed limit) (don’t tell).

22. The last thing you bought – Gas and after this fill up, I won’t be buying things for awhile.

The last thing you bought - Gas

April Photo a Day – Fashion & Beauty

Fashion & Beauty is the theme the last few photos.

16. Flower  After having a conversation with a client about networking and image I came up with this little idea for the ladies at my networking group. Did you know that yellow is a memorable color. If you wear it when meeting people you’ll have a better chance of being remembered. Same reason Post-Its are yellow, you’re more likely to remember what you wrote. So, my idea was to have these flowers made for the ladies at my networking group so they could wear them and remember me and the talk I have.

Flowers - Accessories

18. Hair  It makes my younger brother crazy that I have the hair I have. I have never dyed it  and it is naturally curly. He is greying. I have been thinking of cutting it shorter again but my hubby really likes it long. What is it about men and long hair?

Hair - Natural color & curl

19. Orange  My youngest really likes orange. It is not one of my favorites. I was at a BeautiControl meeting learning about the fun things in store for May and saw this.

Parenthood – April Photo a Day 12-14

More about my boys and the fun we have.

12. Stairs  We don’t have stairs at our house and I didn’t go anywhere to find some. So here are some stairs we found.

Stairs - Batman Cave

13. Something you found  Here is my C boy with a something he found. He’s pretty proud of the find.

Something C Boy's found.

14. How you feel today  I started this day feeling grumpy. I think it had to do with boys being naughty and not listening. But by lunch I was feeling “Thumbs Up” with a snuggle from my big boy.

Feeling - Thumbs up

 

Promoting my Business – Wine Women and Wings to Soar event

I was given a great opportunity to showcase my Image Consulting Business at the Wine Women and Wings to Soar event held at the ASU Polytechnic Campus. The sponsors National Bank of Arizona did a lovely job of pulling all the details together, food, beverages, door prizes and special gifts for each person in attendance. We also had the privilege to listen to a panel of inspirational women sharing their experience in the world of technology.

I was able to meet some fantastic ladies and share my business with them, JackieStyle. Help women look and feel their best through image services including skin care, make up application, color analysis, body typing, fashion personality, closet makeovers, personal shopping, wardrobing, workshops and more.

I had a little challenge trying to put together what I felt was the “right” display. You’ll have to let me know if what I put together did that justice.

Inside your wallet

9. Younger You  Yes, this is me. I see a little of me in my boys. 🙂

April Photo a Day 5-7

I have had really good eye site for as long as I can remember. So you can image how not being able to read the color names on my lip colors can be frustrating…

5. Tiny  Names on the bottom of my BeautiControl Lip Color – Fire & Ice

Tiny Words - Fire & Ice

6. Lunch I didn’t have anything fun or exciting for lunch so I thought it would be funny to take a photo of hubby’s lunch. I lovingly pack his lunch for him before he heads off to work. It saves us so much money and it’s healthier for him too. Plus leftovers get eaten, everyone is happy.

Lunch - to go

7. Shadow I thought is was funny that on Easter Day the topic was Shadow… Not egg? bunny? CHOCOLATE?? Nope, Shadow. This was taken while the boys where hunting for EGGS, eating CHOCOLATE, talking about BUNNY’s

Shadow on Easter.

Have you noticed a change in your eyes?

Do you pack a lunch?
