I'd like to think that I am a walking, talking advertisement for the things I hope to achieve and attain, when I say that I don't just mean in my personal business, but in my personal life as well. I've been asked to share what's in my bag, now if I shared everything, You'd wonder how in the world I don't have a hunchback or even how it is that I'm still standing, so I chose selectively.
I'll start by sharing a sneak peek inside the mark Color Pop bag, the bag is a monumental statement all on it's own because I am a very plain Jane type of girl, strictly monotone colors, nothing that stands out, but I thought that this season was the appropriate season for change, change within myself, changing of my goals and change because I finally took a leap of faith with color. The reviews of this change? "I love that bag, I'm surprised that you're carrying it, but it looks great on you". Yes, that was a response from the woman that knows where I stand when it comes to fashion and standing out, my mother.
As I spill out the contents of my bag, please bear in mind that one thing that I never can achieve but long to obtain is organization, so the contents of my bag are 1, organized or 2, a key to becoming organized.
The first thing I'm going to share is of course what? My mark business, I carry it in my bag, because as in order to achieve it, you've got to believe it, I'm that advertisement you'd love to hate and I've got to produce results at any given moment, "I love that bag", "Why thank you, it's the mark Color pop bag", "What's mark?", "You're not familiar, well let me introduce you, here's my card and a maglog, lets get in touch", as I exit the elevator! Okay, so it hasn't been done quite that way, but hey, it COULD happen.
Since it is now established that I am certified mark lover and representative, I'm also a mom, a mom who loves to be trendy, look good and be organized and I cannot achieve that without the items to follow:
This right here is best invention for any mom on the go, it's my momAgenda mini daily, this is my key to organizing all of my children's information, appointments and contacts in one pretty location. So at any given time I'll know what needs to be done or when we need to be there for any one of my 4 children. I am nothing without this organizational tool, the only thing that is imperative is that you keep it current and you refer to it often. Organized scheduling is a must when you're a busy mom on the go, who works a full-time job, own your own business, have four kids all in different schools, attend college and volunteer with Girl Scouts. Enough said!
Seeing as though I do tend to get scatterbrained and from time to time I could use a outlet, some time ago, I used to run to a long time favorite, which I am proud to say that the smoke went out over 2 years ago, but since I'm working on being around for some time, raising healthy children while keeping and maintaining my sanity, I've opted to express myself through journaling, I also carry a reminder of why I do what I do and why I need to decompress. I carry a personalized journal in my handbag. This journal is of amazing quality, it comes from Paper Coterie, and it only cost me the price of shipping & handling (sorry, promotion now over), but even without the promotion the book sells for $15 and the quality and personalization is definitely worth it.
The last items I'm going to share are those that keep me looking and feeling fresh and "beautiful" at all times. Every woman has their selection of beauty products and since I'm a mark rep, by default the majority of what I use is from mark, I'm not sorry, in my bag I carry this small make up bag filled with 3 mark hook-ups, these hook-ups are two scentsational hook ups filled with marks latest fragrances and then of course... the third hook-up is what I love to call my "lip juice", it not only keeps my lips moisturized but it keep my look refreshed and vibrant all day. It's mark glow baby glow luxe in Choco and mark mini mark it hook-up stick for lips in Cocoa. I love it because it's shiny, it sparkles, and it's perfect for any occasion.
