Ladies, interested in style and how to put together great outfits? How about your man?

I've participated in four style challenges by Alison Lumbatis and they have been well worth the minimal price. And a whole lot of fun. I have turned my wardrobe around. I have fewer pieces but more outfit options. The Spring Challenge is coming up soon! But meanwhile, maybe your man could use some style guidance. Here's a style challenge just for men, but you may have to be the one to participate for him...  …Christy
From Alison:
"Could your guy’s wardrobe use a little help?  I’m willing to guess the answer is yes, and I’d also bet that he’s not a huge fan of shopping. Most men aren’t. Fortunately, the Menswear Basics Boot Camp will make both of you happy by providing a shopping list of the pieces he needs to create the outfits you’ll love!

Fiction University: At-Home Workshop: Revise Your Novel in 31 Days

This looks like a good opportunity to revise your novel within a community of like-minded writers. Check it out. I'm going to do it.

Fiction University: At-Home Workshop: Revise Your Novel in 31 Days: By Janice Hardy, @Janice_Hardy
As I was gearing up to start revisions on my NaNo novel, it occurred to me that I probably wasn't the only one with a draft ready to revise. I thought it would be fun to dedicate March to all the writers out there with a novel (NaNo or otherwise) who are also ready for revisions, but who might need a little guidance and motivation to get through it. A play-at-home game if you will, and I’ll be playing along myself, taking my draft through the same process. I invite everyone looking for a fun way to revise to join me.

This could be the life-changing challenge you've been looking for.

The first month of the new year is almost gone. 

Have you set goals or resolutions? 
Have you thought about how you will achieve everything you want to do?
Have you thought about how you want to improve your life this year? 
Do you want to be more confident in who you are?
Here's a chance to Rediscover Yourself. 

I first found Alison Lumbatis' web site, Get Your Pretty On,* last fall. I joined her  Fall Style Me Pretty Challenge and it was so much fun, and so rewarding that I also participated in three more style challenges: Build Your Wardrobe Basics for Women over 40, Winter/Holiday Style Me Pretty Challenge, and Work Your Work Wear Challenge. With each challenge you get a list of clothes to pull from your closet or shop for. Then for 21 days you get an outfit of the day via email, mixing and matching the items from the list. You get to step out of your style box and try new things new ways. You can join a private Facebook Group for each challenge and share your conquests, style questions, and compliment each other in this group of generous, like-minded women.

I completely turned my tired, old, frumpy wardrobe around. Now I want to Rediscover Me and to do that I joined her next challenge, the Rediscover Me 28 Day Challenge. 

From Alison:


Rediscover your confidence and prioritize what matters in 28 Days

Are you ready to make February a life-changing month?

Here’s what you get in the 28 Day Challenge…

  • A step-by-step guide to gain satisfaction, confidence and clarity in key areas including goal setting, self care, appearance, health, wellness, personal growth and relationships.
  • Daily videos and exercises to inspire you to dig deep and create lasting, positive change.
  • Printable PDF’s and journaling exercises based upon my most effective life coaching techniques for women.
  • Weekly accountability and focus forms that you can continue to use even after the challenge ends.
  • Group support and accountability in our 28 Day Challenge community.
This challenge might be for you if: 
  • You’re ready to regain your confidence and a sense of who you really are.
  • You’re stuck in a rut and not sure how to get out of it.
  • You’re wanting to rediscover a sense of your identity outside of your typical roles of mom and wife.
  • You’re an empty nester ready to reinvent yourself.  You may have a vague sense of what’s next but aren’t really sure.
  • Most importantly, you’re ready to dig deep and DO THE WORK.  This course is called a challenge for a reason.  It’s intensive and life changing.  I only want women who are 100% committed to it.


Doesn't that sound wonderful? I hope you join us in this challenge. We'd love to have you. --
