Best of Winter Sales + Ways to Be More Productive


And, it’s Friday.

I am sharing a round-up of the most popular and best winter sales.  There are so many great deals - so many that I just want to shop!

Also, I wanted to share this very popular pin on Pinterest.  I thought the trend of over the knee boots might be fading - but this outfit is going strong.



My encouragement today is on time management.  If I am being honest, I am feeling very unproductive in this area. In my "real job" as a product manager, I am great, but when it comes to my personal life, and trying to grow my side businesses, I somewhat feel like a failure most days.  I know "failure" is a harsh word, but I feel defeated at times.  I know I need to give myself some slack because I am juggling a lot of things right now; however, in wanting to find ways to improve, I found this article on 20 powerful tips to improve time management.

1. Create a time audit.
When it comes to time management, the first step you need to take is finding out where your time actually goes. You may believe that you only send 30 minutes on emails, but in reality that task is eating-up an hour of your day...

2. Set a time limit to each task.
I've found that setting a time limit to each task prevents me from getting distracted or procrastinating. For example, if I want to write an article for my blog, I give myself two hours. So if I started at 8am, I try to get it written by 10am...

3. Use a to-do-list, but don’t abandon tasks.
“All goals and projects are made up of smaller parts that need to be accomplished in order to achieve the goal, or complete the project. Create to-do lists for each goal and project, listing all the measurable steps that need to be accomplished,” suggests William Lipovsky.

4. Plan ahead.
One of the worst things that you can do is wake-up without a plan for the day. Instead of focusing on what needs to be done, you wander aimlessly and take care of more trivial matters...

I think this next one will stick in my head...
5. Spend your mornings on MITs.
Mark Twain once said, "If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

Gross? Sure. But, the point that Twain was making that you should take care your biggest and most-challenging tasks in the morning, aka your most important tasks (MITs) of the day...

You can read the remaining 15 HERE.
I have to say #17 on the list is one I wish was an option for me.

And, now on to the style and fashion...

Happy Monday!

Grey jeans are something that can be worn with so many different colors.  You can mix them with neutrals, colors, and prints.  In trying to show more ways to style an item, I am sharing three different ways to style grey jeans. All three of these are favorites of mine - and something I would wear.

The first look has a few great sale pieces - like the chunky rose-colored sweater that is 40% off, and the very popular ankle booties that are also on sale - and come in a lot more colors and prints.

My encouraging thought today is on discouragement.  We all face discouraging times in our life - they may be big events in life that cause us a lot of pain, or sometimes it is can just be the daily disappointments that can upset us... 

Everyone has known the ache of sadness that comes when life moves in an unanticipated, undesired direction. Disappointment may come as a result of a negative change in circumstances, a sudden reversal of plans, or a frustrating personal issue...

The Lord has a unique plan for your life, too. One that does not change according to unexpected circumstances. When you confront a situation that does not line up with your understanding of how God wants your life to proceed, you must stop and look to Him for direction. Sometimes He allows disappointments to occur so that you will learn to rely on Him more fully—to walk by faith and not by sight. 

But never forget this: while disappointments are inevitable, discouragement is a choice. You should not allow the challenges that arise to steal your enthusiasm or confidence in Him...

God does have blessings for you—more than you can imagine. Let go of disappointments and the fear of hoping and trusting again. God holds your future in His hands, and you will never lose by looking forward to what He has in store.

Yesterday was my first day back to work since December 19th - and I survived!  I truly enjoyed my extended time off from work.  It was so nice to relax and not feel the pressures of work - or the commute!

This brings me to my encouraging thought for today - all about our attitude.  Something I continue to work on is my attitude and outlook on life and different situations.  Our mind and what we think is a powerful thing.  This is a quote from the book - Battlefield of the Mind

For many years I really believed that I was unhappy because of things others were doing or not doing... I finally faced the truth, which was that none of these things had to make me unhappy if I chose to have the right attitude. My thoughts were what was making me miserable. Let me say it one final time: think about what you are thinking about. You may locate some of your problems and be on your way to freedom very quickly.

10 Items I am Selling on Ebay

Happy Monday!

As I mentioned on Friday, I tend to gravitate towards neutral colors and one of my favorite style bloggers to follow is Fashion Jackson.  She wears a lot of whites, blacks, and neutrals - a lot like I do.   And, one of my outfits on repeat this winter is black jeans with a white sweater.   

Today, I am sharing some items I am selling on eBay.  Over the Christmas break, I cleaned out my closets and decided to sell some things.  Let me tell you - I don't know how people sell things all the time - because it takes a lot of time to get it all ready.  I just hope to make a little money back for the time spent.

My motivation for today is to be an encourager to start something new or tackle a project you have been procrastinating doing.  Even if it is just little steps - step forward in faith...

“You may delay, but time will not.” 
—Benjamin Franklin

“You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.” 
—Henry Ford

“So what do we do? Anything. Something. So long as we just don’t sit there. If we screw it up, start over. Try something else. If we wait until we’ve satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late.”
—Lee Iacocca

New Year + New Deals

gucci bag, black jeans, grey sweater, black booties

Happy New Year!

My style is definitely more neutral colors - like black, grey, and beige.  I love this look with the black jeans and the grey sweater and coat.  This Christmas I got a new red sweater that I love - and have enjoyed wearing, but for the most part, I stick to the neutrals.

My encouragement today is about being a helpful encourager...

If you have struggled and experienced a difficult situation, you know what it feels like.  And, because you know how it feels, you can better understand someone else that might go through a trying situation. We learn best through experience.  We might not enjoy the "learning" time, but in the end, it will leave us better equipped to help others.

But there is a reason God calls us to - rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. . . .  If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.  He gave us our emotions to understand one another— so we could reach into another’s deepest wounds and become His instrument of healing to them.

- From the book - Emotions: Confront the Lies. Conquer with Truth
