I’m not a makeup girl

I’m not a makeup girl

I’m not a Make-Up Girl or the Revenge of the Eyelash   “I’m not a make-up girl. It’s just not my personality.” Those words would have described me for most of my life. I was not the type of teenager who experimented with make-up and I didn’t wear foundation until...

50 by 50, or Not

Taking Time for Yourself (or a Friend)

Taking Time for Yourself (or a Friend)

I sometimes feel that one of the most selfless things we can do is drop everything to be there for a friend in need.  It is kinda heroic, don’t you think? Wait! Heroic? Was that a little bit of self-aggrandizing? Yeah, there is also a little bit of the martyr cloak...

Good Vibes

Good Vibes

Good Vibes Have you ever worked in an environment where each person is pretty much out for themselves? Or maybe co-workers were more or less friendly, but management was hard edged? Or it all seemed nice on the surface, but push comes to shove, the knives are easily...

Are you kidding me??

Are you kidding me??

"Are you kidding me? I have to wear a dress?" The dress code for Mary Kay is always a dress or skirt. Consultants are encouraged to wear black and white and as you move up the career ladder you have other specified suits to wear. Pants are frowned upon, if not...
