10 Day Challenge- Day 3!

Now that everything is cleared away and put in the right place or prepared for the donation portion of the challenge, you are ready to pick out what looks great(definite keepers) and what does not (more donations)! However, before you trek through each item of clothing to decide what is right and what is not, dividing your clothing by garment type will make the entire process much easier! If unclear on how you want to divide, the following is a list to help get you started!

a. Business Suits
b. Pants
c. Dresses (day & formal)
d. Skirts
e. Tops & Sweaters
f. Denim
g. Workout Clothes
h. Lingerie & Swimsuits

Once you’ve completed this third step, there will be a huge difference in your wardrobe and how it is organized! I am confident that you will be reenergized and excited to start the next steps, now that all of the unnecessary items are cleared from your path.  You now have all of the necessary momentum to take the next seven steps, as it has cleared the clutter out of the way and made room for you to start your year of extraordinary style!

Are you having difficulty sorting through all of your stuff? Is the idea of finishing this next step already overwhelming? Not to worry, it happens to the best of us! Feel free to contact me and we will make an appointment to make sure your items are organized in 2015!

Best,

10 Day Challenge- Day 2!

Did you complete your first step of the challenge? Is the laundry all done and are all those piles put back where they belong?  Baskets emptied? So, how long has it been? And please tell me, just how good do you feel at the present moment? I personally love the feeling of seeing things through to completion, but sometimes the time just doesn’t allow. I am hoping that you feel as good as I do today and that you are ready for the second day of this challenge and a new task to complete!

Today’s assignment could be a difficult one. I am going to ask you to remove items from your closet that might have been there for years.  I understand that there are things you haven’t worn in sometime, things that perhaps do not fit or even things that have sentimental value.  If this is the case, now is the time to ask yourself why it’s still there? Hanger space is a precious commodity and giving it to something that hasn’t been worn in over a year is never ever a good idea! There is a reason why you’re not wearing it, a reason it no longer belongs there. Whether it doesn’t fit, is something that you hope will come back into style or is that sentimental dress you just can’t get rid of, it needs to leave the hanger. Do not pass go, do not collect $200, just move it from cluttering your way to extraordinary style today! Whichever route you choose- donation, giving it to a friend or even just storing it in the basement until you know what to do with it, this step is critical to completing the challenge and making sure that you start this year off right!

Best,

10 Day Challenge- Day 1!

Do you have a closet full of nothing to wear?  Do you ever wish you could go shopping in your own wardrobe and find new looks for your old favorites?  Wouldn’t it be nice to know each outfit in your closet is comfortable and looks great 10 days from now?  I can show you the way!  There is no greater feeling than having a wardrobe of items that make you look and feel fabulous and no greater relief than knowing your wardrobe is on autopilot!  These next ten days will clear all of the clutter from your closet and make way for a year of extraordinary style, so let’s get started!

This first step is critical to the success of this challenge- whenever you decide to start.  Begin with the end in mind.  It is that simple and that crucial to your success in these 10 days.  It is time to clean before the cleaning lady arrives!  You must make sure that all of your clothes are clean, folded and in their proper place before you begin- no excuses.  Seriously.  Who wants to finish this 10 Day Challenge and organize your wardrobe, only to find another pile on top of the washer that you have to sort through? Ugh. Take the time today to complete this ever-important first step and meet me back here tomorrow morning ready to take on the second step!  Questions?  Or perhaps you need help getting you on your way?  Give a call today and we will start the 10 Day Challenge together!

Best,

So now your really down to the wire… With what hours remain, if you are fortunate enough to get though the traffic and to a store of your choosing, my suggestion is to head towards the book store and find a subject that your recipient loves!  A good book is always a welcome gift, something you can get at the last minute and something that the person receiving will cherish in the dull months of January and February! So run as quickly as possible to your local book store and wow them with a gift they will truly adore!

So, you have one day left- one day to find perfection and get them a gift of wow and wonderment! Is this person a chef? Do they love to spend time in the kitchen?  If they are anything like me or some of my clients, cooking is a true love and this year is the time to get the something special!

Merging a gift with that of an experience for the two of you can be a huge success this time of year! How about the latest Kitchen Aid mixer paired with a Cookie Making Class in January? Or perhaps an on the counter wine chiller paired with a private tasting at The Wine School of Philadelphia? Or maybe, just maybe, a new flask paired with tickets to tour the newest local distillery? Make this year special for the your recipient and pair something they love with the gift of experience. Questions? I am still available for discussion and ideas- feel free to call me!

So, now we are really down to the wire, aren’t we? Have you finished your shopping yet? No? Really? Don’t frett, I still have a couple of ideas up my sleeve.  Keep reading daily and see if you can’t find that perfect present for your loved one!

Another perfect “go to” gift- a present that everyone will appreciate- is the gift of great scent.  Unless allergic, there are so many different types of fragrance and such a variety to choose from that this is one gift that will always be a success! Perhaps perfume is too strong? Fragrance can sometimes be too overpowering. That’s quite alright, though, there are many different ways to wear a scent.  You can always try their favorite scent in an oil, creme or lotion, which will present the fragrance in a softer way! Questions?  Need a last minute basket for someone close?  Give a call and I will be sure to get you taken care of before the holiday on Thursday!
