Motivational Mondays: Luck….

LuckQuote_BarbaraSher

Luck is a strange thing.  Some people seem to mired in it — seriously they walk out the door and find a $20 bill.  They buy a lottery ticket and win the grand prize.  They walk into a bar and Ryan Gosling starts buying them drinks.  Luck is their wing man…..

I on the other hand have never won anything in my life except for science fairs and scholarships.  Mind you those are all good things that I am grateful for but they aren’t “luck” per say.  In my life, my “luck” comes from careful timing, consideration and large amounts of work to be prepared for when an opportunity arises.  Luck is more my study buddy…..

But luck can you be on your side because there is one more day to enter the Joy & Revelry Pin It To Win Contest……

Joy & Revelry Launch & Contest……

If you noticed a disturbance in the “design force” yesterday, it was because we had a game changer occur……. Joy & Revelry officially opened and debuted the Style Maven Shops.

As a refresher, Joy & Revelry works with social media influencers and bloggers to create their own online retail experiences.  I was lucky enough to be asked to join the inaugural group of Style Mavens a few months ago and we have all been working hard on our respective stores sourcing products, styling photo shoots and promoting the brand.  It’s a full-time job but so rewarding to see the physical embodiment of our brands.

To give you a little better idea of the concept behind my store and Joy & Revelry here is a video we shot for the site …….

To kick off the launch, Joy & Revelry is conducting a Pin It To Win It Contest for a chance to win a $500 shopping spree on the site!

Z Gallerie Gift Card Winner & Shot of Yellow……

So first things first, give a big ol’ congrats to the winner of the Z Gallerie Gift Card Give Away…..

Congratulations to Amy of the blog Eat. Sleep. Decorate.   Amy check your email for a message from me on next steps.  And to those of you who didn’t win, there are other give aways planned this Spring, so keep reading, commenting and being in general awesome people and your time for some free swag will come!

But do you know what it is time for?  Sunshine.  Honestly, the Bay Area has been cold, rainy and just plain dreary.  It’s like being in Seattle but without the good coffee or the abundance of plaid.  For myself, I am currently craving something yellow – that happy and bright hue that dares you not to smile when you see it.  And to satisfy my inner nerd, did you know that yellow has been shown to stimulate thinking and analysis?  A shot of yellow in an office may be the  perfect thing to counteract your afternoon slump.  So rather than grabbing a mocha around 3pm, grab a yellow highlighter and a yellow sticky pad and run around your office.  True that your co-workers will probably report you to HR as having flipped your wig, but on the positive side, you will have kicked your caffeine  habit!  Now with all that extra cash from not buying coffee, take a gander at all the ways you can blow your wad on something yellow …….

Okay I am feeling better.  But if you are still craving more color, check out my Pinterest boards on Yellow and Bold Color.  And while, you are at it check me out on Facebook as well as Twitter.
