Makeovers & Mimosas: Because You ARE Beautiful!!


Feeling a bit down, like you just don’t stack up against the rest? You don’t have to look far to have those feeling confirmed. Just log onto Facebook, Instagram, or practically any social media outlet and you will be bombarded with before and after images. The before images often show a woman with excess fat, unfit, face breaking out, short hair, or whatever feature a certain product focuses on correcting and inevitably the after image is this fit, toned, clean complexion, long haired woman, etc. or the solution the product provided. Scroll down that feed a bit farther and you will see more images, images of how amazing your life could be once you have that “after image”. I should clarify at this point that I have mad respect and support for all the independent home sales product representatives, consultants, & presenters out there; y’all are doing a phenomenal job. My issue lies in the fact that there are so many women who perpetually see themselves stuck as the “before image”, who refuse to really start living their lives until they reach that “after image” of themselves,  perhaps even an ‘after image’ that isn’t even realistically attainable. Pair that with the fact that a recent study found that the average woman puts herself down at least eight times each day, EIGHT, (criticisms around appearance and weight are the most prevalent) and it really is a wonder some of us even bother getting out of bed in the morning!  The study went on to state that two-fifths of survey respondents said they never complimented themselves on a typical day. (Source) That is why I wanted to host a Makeovers & Mimosas event, an event to celebrate the way we are NOW, today, to recognize & enhance our natural beauty, to find clothing that fits our bodies today, to embrace our size & shape, to feel good about ourselves today, not struggle for months to achieve that after image and then live, tomorrow isn’t promised, it is vital we don’t waste today …oh, and most importantly, to have a great time!!

We started our Makeovers & Mimosas event with a toast….a toast to healthy body image, positive self-talk, complimenting ourselves, putting an end to the critical thinking & negative talk…each woman raised a glass and stated the following, “I am beautiful!”!!!

And then the fun began!!! Half of the ladies stayed upstairs and took turns applying makeup, getting their hair styled, and enjoying a massage….

There might have even been a little bonding going on….not just with the other ladies but with the clothing, purses, various brands…sometimes they just call out to us & it is hard to let go.

I was sad to see the day end, it was such a positive, uplifting, and fun experience.

You're off to great places! But do keep in touch!

In the words of Dr. Seuss, You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go. And when you get there take us with you!
