Divinely perfect and unique is the New Black Dress!
That’s why I’ve partnered with Gain to celebrate us and host a Twitter party on Wednesday, June 20th, 8-9PM (EST), giving away amazing prizes (everything from laundry detergent, softener, to a year’s full of GAIN products). Simply RSVP@email@example.com and spread the word.
Think about your parents and how they did not have it together when you were growing up; however, all the valuable lessons you learned in the process?
Trial and error still rocks!
Recently I read a blog by a popular celebrity-mom talking about how she is able to manage all three of her kids, workout, have dinner prepared at 6pm, schedule date night twice a week and still hang-out with girlfriends for coffee or wine?
Wow, that’s darn impressive!! Most weeks, I order takeout 2x, check homework, kiss my husband and pass out on the couch in my sweats.
Then I did some research and learned that this ‘certain’ celebrity has a “team,” not just a “nanny” to keep her and family together.
It’s all about being authentic and telling people what’s going on truthfully and not feeling compelled to create perfection — it does not exist regardless of your income.
So what if you have not lost all the weight gained during pregnancy and it took Mariah Carey 3 months to lose 30 pounds? She is a paid Jenny Craig spokesperson! If you were getting paid to lose weight you would put down that piece of chicken, I know I would.
It’s time to stop the madness and not use celebrity as the barometer in our lives to measure success. Remember, they are only telling you the “PR” friendly parts of the ‘brand.’
I’ve learned it’s okay to be imperfectly imbalance and not play into what I am supposed to say.
Celebrate your bold and unique style!!
