NEW is the hot word for January. Whether it be a new workout regimen, new clothes from holiday gifts or a new job. January is the big reboot month for everyone.
Getting new things can be good for a change of pace. I mean, who doesn't love werk'in it in a new skirt that hugs them just right or wearing a new lipstick shade that brings life to their face? We all do.
As we get all of this new stuff, how are you making room for it? There are so many things that I bet aren't serving you anymore. As I was going through my clothes last night and cleaning out my makeup this morning I realized how much stuff I haven't worn in ages or haven't used at all.
I participated in a photo shoot last month (that will be featured in Love IT! Evv Magazine, yippie!) called Reuse, Repurpose, Reimagine. We used vintage dresses and some upcycled jewelry to dress the models. One of the former owners of the dresses was so thrilled to let us use the dresses, because although beautiful they weren't serving her anymore.
I want us all to use this concept this month and really all year! Instead of holding on to things we don't use why don't we pass them on to those who can enjoy them & put them to use!
I found a great local non- profit organization called the House of Bread & Peace. They help women get back on their feet and find jobs and homes. I think this is amazing. I am donating new & unused makeup and also gently worn business casual clothes to this organization to help these women have the same feeling that I have when I get dressed, and that's the power to take on the world.
If you would like to join me in donating, bring your gently worn business casual clothing, unused and sealed makeup, boxes of tampons or pads, deodorant, really just anything that a woman would need to get ready for her day. I will give you $10 to use towards your appointment with me! You give, I give, we all give!! And guess what? We all WIN too!!
So here's to a fabulous 2015 & let the giving season continue!
Other Happenings for January 2015
Products you may want to try this month are :
SKINCARE: Soap Solutions Perfectly Polished - It's still dry skin season. If you're wondering why the extra moisture you're putting on isn't soaking in, 9 times out of 10 you have flaky dead layers of skin blocking your healthy tissue. The best way to remedy that is with an exfoliator. This all natural mix of herbs & clay is perfect for gently removing dead cells.
MAKEUP : BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed good lord it is one of the most beautiful highlighters I have EVER used! I am obsessed! Give this a good swipe on the top of your cheekbones, right under your brows & on the in corners of your eyes. Be light handed as it is very pigmented! A little goes a long way!
