BeautiControl “Celebration” Re-Cap

I was able to attend BeautiControl’s Annual Conference, “Celebration” just last week. I was feeling a little off as I was preparing for my trip.  This could have been partially from my broken toe, or the lack of sleep, or who knows what.  As I tried to pack my bags, focusing on shoes first, then outfit, I became more and more excited.  Remembering that each time I go I have a renewed sense of possibilities, some much needed girlfriend time and refocus of my goals.

Bummer!

Bummer!

I love to people watch and this is the time and place to do it. I wish I was a little more bold in connecting with people so I could get a few “street style” photos so you can experience it too.  The beauty of it is there are so many different kinds of women (and men) who are a part of BeautiControl. And their reasons for connecting with this company are just as varied.

 

Lots of great information and of course amazing stories of inspiration but in the end it takes a little perspiration. Doesn’t anything that is important take work. Luckily this work is fun. One of my favorite things they do for us is give us gifts… so I some of the new product to play with right away and I did… Lighted Lip Shine and the Microderm Apeel

Lip Shine, lighted lip gloss!

New Year Resolutions – Goals – Ideas for the Fashionista

Here we are mid month in January.  Did you make any resolutions? How are you doing? It takes 21 days to make or break a habit. (I think longer if food is involved.) I’ve heard that right about now, mid month, is when people give up. Think about it this way, either it wasn’t right for you or it needs to be broken down in to chunks. By the way, it is totally OK to start over. I think I have about 3 times already.

Here are some ideas I have for your beauty regime.

  • Wash your face (twice a day). I am partial to BeautiControl’s facial system. If you don’t have one find one. If your in AZ I’ll help you. Even if you want to just fall into bed. You’ll feel so much better. Take it from me, I’ve been falling into bed the last 7 years (oldest child) I feel so much better when I do this.
  • Wear Sunscreen everyday (no it doesn’t matter that it is the dead of winter) the sun is blaring and the UV rays are bouncing off of everything. Protect your skin.
  • Brush AND Floss  No I am not being paid by the dentistry association. Keeps your smile healthy and you healthy too. I found out the plaque associated with heart disease is the same plaque in your mouth… Take care of your smile, take care of your heart.

    Daily Routine

    Daily Routine – Skin care and smile care.

How about some fashion ideas…

  • Shop your closet first  Before running off to the store to get something new, shop your closet. Get creative with a new look. Think outside the box or closet in this case. You’ll save time and money. Who doesn’t want both of those?
  • Only keep what fits you in your closet  There is nothing like pulling out something to wear and realizing you can’t fit into it weather to big or small. If you want to hang onto somethings fine, just keep them separate. It will save time and aggravation.
  • Decide what you are going to wear the night before  Even if you have to create two looks. Yes, I am guilty of it too. I pull something together the night before and then in the morning I am not in the mood for that look. Now I get two outfits ready. It saves time and If I can sleep in just a bit longer totally worth it.
Nothing to wear?

What fashion or beauty resolution are you working on?

 

April Photo a Day 25. Looking Down

While “looking down” I realized I need a pedicure. Luckily you can’t tell. Good thing I know a few products that can help. I just love the Detox foot creme from BeautiControl. I have it on my bedside table to make sure I put it on every night. Since sandal season is upon us it’s even more important. I like to do a treatment for my clients where you put the foot creme on, a plastic bag and then a heated footie. Oh it feels soo good and your feet are smooth afterward. It’s even better if you do a little foot scrub before hand. The crazy thing is if I put on my foot creme while my hubby is around next thing I know his feet are on my lap.

Looking down – my toes, need a pedicure.

What’s your favorite color to paint your toes?

Me – March Photo a Day 26 & 27 & 31

Lumping these three together as I feel they represent me. Yes, all my photos represent me in some way… but these more so than some of the others.

26. Key  I had several ideas for this one so if it come back I think I am going to use them. This time I just went for the “classic” idea of key. These are my keys. They unlock all the places I need to go and am responsible for. The key ring was from my company as a gift for doing well. Yeah, just for doing my “job” I got a gift. Cool huh. I like it and there’s no denying that is my key ring.

Key - lots of responsibility .

27. Your Name  My given name and legal name is much longer than what this name tag says. But if you want me to answer you it is but to just call me Jackie. 🙂 “Your Name” for me right now also represents what I have named my business. I have used JackieStyle for 20 years but just officially named it last year. It is who I am. What do I do? I style you and assist you with your outward appearance. Although I have been know to talk about the inside as well.  What kind of style do I have? JACKIESTYLE.

Your Name - Tag

ps. My good friends over at Andrade Promotions made the name tag and Visage Creative help me develop the logo.

31. Where you Relax  When I really want to take some time out of the craziness I plop myself over to this spot. I can hide for a little bit in this little corner of my room. I’ll read, study and or journal there. This is often where I set my goals. I love the print on the chair, angels.

Where you Relax - read, study, journal

What is most YOU?

Fashion & Make Up March Photo a day 7-9

Here I go to continue the photo a day (catch up).

7. Something you wore  I chose this outfit for the March 7th as I was invited to speak for a women’s group EVFN. They tend to be older and I wanted to have a conservative look. So I wore a great wide leg grey trouser (you can see from a previous post), a button down navy pinstripe shirt and these FAB tweed heels. I was well received by the ladies, so I guess I did good.

Something I wore.

8. Window By the end of the day my creative juices were done and the boys were in bed so I only had a few window options open.  This is in my bedroom… I hung my dream board off the sheers so I could look at it every day.

Window - Bedroom

9. Red LIp colour… This is one of my favorite lip colors right now. Cherry Blossom and it is of course from BeautiControl. It is a lip stick, stain and gloss all in one called an “Intense Lip Creme”. I have to use a mirror to apply, most other kinds I don’t have to.

If you’d like to know more about the lip creme let me know. 🙂

Fashion – Skin Care – Makeup – February Photo a Day 22, 23, 24, and 25.

Yes, I am lumping several days into one post, again. Finding my rhythm to write my posts have been difficult for me. I, as many moms do, have a lot on my plate. Not an excuse, just the truth.

Day 22. Where you Work  My motto has been “Have car will travel” when it come to my business.  My work is done at your kitchen table across from you, in your clothing closet, at the your store of choice, or at the event of your choice.  I am independent so I go where I am needed/wanted. This photo is specifically of my BeautiControl Bag and all the goodies inside… BC Skin Spa Facial line, all the “face lift” products, of course a full army of cosmetics.

Across the Kitchen Table from you.

Day 23. Your Shoes  Remember when I shared a good friend of mine gave me some shoes?  Here is another pair. They were surprisingly comfortable and of course super chic.

My Chic Green Shoes.

Day 24. Inside Your Bathroom Cabinet  I was sooo dreading this one. But I guess we have a lot of the same things everyone else has.

Bathroom Cabinet

Here is my favorite part of the bathroom cabinet. My skin care.  Yes, I know that I have some bias, but I truly would not be using it if I didn’t love it and see results. (BeautiControl’s BC Spa Facial Regime)  And, there is a NEW item in there that I am sooo enjoying, TFF (Tight Firm and Fill) Extreme (silver bottle). This stuff totally rocks.

Day 25. Green This is a necklace my grandmother gave me while she was still alive. She wore it when she was “young”. I don’t wear a lot of green but when I do I pull this necklace out.  In fact I wore them the day I wore the chic green shoes from above. I don’t have a lot from her so this is really special to me.
