I’m All In!! The Start of My Mary Kay Journey

Happy Friday to all my followers!

If you cannot tell by the title of this post, I have made my choice on Mary Kay.

I have decided to go All In!!!!! The meeting on Tuesday went very well, and I felt really good about picking it up again. The difference with go around, is that I want to do it this time. Not for my friend, and not for anyone else’s gain, but for me. I want to put my best foot forward and actually give this a good shot! I am going to be purchasing my Starter Kit today and then I can start making plans and parties once I get it! I am so excited that I can barely stand it!

I want to make something clear about this, I won’t be posting a lot about Mary Kay on here for one reason. I don’t want this blog to lose it’s meaning. I created this blog as an outlet for my life, and I feel that this blog is a hobby. I do not want to place my business on my blog becuase it is business, not my hobby. What I will place on here are any accomplishments that I make along the way, but nothing about selling on here. This is one of the major promises I have made to myself as a consultant. I will not view anyone as a big “$” sign. I want to do Mary Kay to share products that I love and to help others feel empowered and love themselves.

I have a HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT coming up soon and guys, I can’t wait to share it with you! I will probably post about it either tonight or Saturday morning, but I can’t just yet!

I hope you all have an amazing night/day and I will talk to you all later!

Mary Kay. To Sell or Not To Sell?

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had an amazing week and weekend! There are so many things coming up this next week and I am beyond excited for it! My brother and parents are coming into town for a week, SLCC begins on Thursday and I made an AMAZING Belle Cosplay from the Live Action version of Beauty and the Beast, and the next thing that is happening is in the title of this blog post. Mary Kay.

I am writing this post in the hopes of actually getting some help on making a decision with Mary Kay. To back track here, one year ago, I signed up to become a Mary Kay Consulatant along side my long time friend. I was really excited for the new opportunity, but after a month and a half, I found myself in a position where I didn’t feel like I had the time to do it. I became discouraged and frusterated quickly and would rather go back to my normal day to day life than deal with Mary Kay.

After leaving it, I felt better to an extent, I felt like a failure. I didn’t really give this a true shot. I felt pressured into buying an inventory for Mary Kay products when I couldn’t afford one. I was being pressured to convince women to try and build a team with us, when I wasn’t about that. I want to help women and even men to feel confident about their skin, or to feel good in their skin. That was the main reason I joined Mary Kay with my friend. None the less, I felt like a failure for not giving my all.

Then two weeks ago, one of my other dearest friends who is getting married in a few months won a free makeover through David’s Bridal with Mary Kay. I was invited to attend, I did. I figured that since I knew how the show is run, I wouldn’t participate. Once we got to the party, the consulant was quite rude. She knew that I had a different consultant so therefore, she didn’t see any potential dollar signs above my head. When she would ask the questions if we knew what certain products were used for or why we should use them, the other girls didn’t know why. But I did, so I answered them. The consultant was impressed with me knowing so much and said that I should be one too. I told her that I was once, but figured that it wasn’t for me. She then asked the following question, “What did you do wrong?” I told her that I tried to through together a few facial parties, but nothing ever came of it, “Well, no wonder, you weren’t doing well because you were doing everything wrong.” She refered to my voice and my attitude. This made me mad.

I thought that she was up high in the clouds, she didn’t know me. She didn’t know what I was going through when I was in Mary Kay. I thought to myself that I should join Mary Kay again to prove her wrong. I quickly changed my mind, because I didn’t want to be around such negativity. But I began to re-evaluate who I am as a person and why I joined Mary Kay in the first place. I began to do research and now I am here. I want to ask you all, whoever reads this blog.

What do you know about Mary Kay? Am I crazy to resign up with them and give it another go? Have you had any experiences with consultants? What can I do to be better and be different than other Mary Kay consultants?

I am reaching out here, becuase if I decide to do this, I want to do it right.

I appreciate you all hanging in there and reading this spill, but I really would appreciate some feedback guys. Thank you all!!!!

Rough Night Help

Hey y’all!

How’s your Saturday going?

Josh and I made it to our destination yesterday! But like most people, once you get to where you’re going, and you’ve been cooped up in a car, you are pretty exhausted by the end of the day.

When I am winding down for the day, I generally just like to turn on Netflix or YouTube and zonk out. Sometimes that isn’t enough. My mind will run and run keeping me awake and alert. Two things you don’t want to be feeling when you are trying to- oh I don’t know- sleep?!

That’s when I pull out my essential oils and a good book 🙂

I am currently reading The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, I am posting my current locations on Goodreads. Along with putting breathe on my chest, lavender on my wrists, I start to feel the effects. Even then, I may need some help, only when I am away from home, that’s when I turn to the Serenity blend. Within 15 mins, I am out.

What do you guys do to help you sleep?

Packing Up!

20170601_181347

To continue where I left off on what I do to pack… I love making lists to help improve what I NEED to take verses what I WANT to take. It helps my also stay focused, this way I don’t fill my bag up with useless things I need for my trip!

20170601_181322

I will never leave without packing my doTERRA oils! I generally put these in my purse with me, but these are what keeps my together when taking trips, no matter how far. I have two personal blends, then my Breathe and Lavender, along with my PastTense and InTune for headaches and anxiety attacks.

I find that toiletries can either make or break the trip. I have left the house leaving so many things I needed behind. Once I left my shampoo and conditioner behind and had to buy some. I dunno about you, but I would rather save that money for something else. I’ve gotta say, sometimes you should pack a little more, to save you a whole lot less. If that makes any sense at all!!!

After getting everything packed up into my purse and suitcase, all that is left is to load up the car and get going, which we will be doing in the morning! Again, this trip isn’t very long, but I want to enjoy more of it!

Do you have any summer trips you are taking this year??

How do you prepare for your trips?

Memorial Day Get Together

Happy Memorial day weekend everyone!

Today, Josh, my grandparents and I took off to Delta, Utah to take flowers to our loved ones who are no longer with us. And to my surprise, visit with family. It was awesome! Josh and I learned from one of my great uncles that they had some kittens out back in their wood pile. Thinking that it would be fun to see them, we went looking for them. 

To be honest, I didn’t think that they were going to be there. Whether they wouldn’t come out or maybe they moved out to the neighboring fields. And I was wrong. There were four kittens! Josh and I noticed they were thirsty and hungry. Over the span of an hour, we gave them chicken and water. They immediately warmed up to us! 

It was quite an adventure for us today. How grateful I was to spend it with people I love and care for. While making some new feline friends 🐱

Two of the four kittens we saw today!
