Enrichment Course 5: DREAM-Maker Goal-setting and Planning Project

Hey, Girl! This quick enrichment course is inspired by Girls Like Me, Inc.'s DREAM-Maker Event THIS SATURDAY, February 25, 2017. You can register HERE. For all upcoming events, check the calendar.

DREAM-Maker Project Guide

Who am I?
Describe yourself. What are strongest qualities? What do you like to do? Where do you want to travel? What are your favorite things? What makes you happy? What defines you?

Who do you want to be?
 Dreams and Goals, what will your future look like? How will you design and define success for yourself? What does your future look like?

What should you learn?
Want and need to learn. What skills you need to master? What do you want to study or major in school? Which schools are you interested in?

Who do you admire?
Who is doing what you are doing? Things you love about others because you see it in yourself or you can relate. Who do you think is successful? Who has inspired or influenced you?

Now Visualize It!
Once you write it out, find pictures, images, and words that fit these categories you defined for yourself. Put it in on vision board with magazine cut outs or do it digitally using PowerPoint or Photoshop. You can even utilize social media by creating an Instagram page or  Pinterest board. The point is to keep these images handy where you can constantly check them for inspiration. And this collection is not permanent and stagnant. I advise you to revisit these questions and redo your visualization every year. Save them all to see how you have grown over the years.

Girlies, I hope this worksheet helps you to set goals, plan, and envision the dreams you have for yourself. I hope you continue to seek the DREAM-Maker instead of the matchmaker. In other words, I hope you continue to put your education and dreams before the boys. They will always be there but the opportunities to follow your dreams may not. FOCUS.

Shine. #OOTD|@Polyvore

Hello, My Shining Stars! Today's Outfit of the Day was inspired by Shine! The nude, strappy sandal with shiny beaded details is the not-so-silent slayer of this fit.With the look I styled, I decided to keep the colors neutral but I wanted to amp up the shine with full on sequins. I also love the feather detail on the skirt and the simple top. These pieces add texture and soften the look.

Roses really smell like... SMOOCHES XOXO

@InstaNatural's Dead Sea Mud Mask

Hey, Love Pies! I am bringing you a review of InstaNatural's Dead Sea Mud Mask. The Dead Sea Mud Mask is an all-natural detoxifier and purifier that comes from the renowned and sacred Dead Sea. Dead Sea Mud contains many minerals beneficial to the skin, such as magnesium, sodium, bromine, potassium and calcium. Once applied, this mud mask treatment starts working to absorb excess oil, dirt, and toxins from the skin. Follow up with the Pore Tightening Vitamin C Facial Toner for spa-worthy skin!

It is great to expunge acne, restore an even skin tone, and even soothe and relieve muscles aches. Whenever I use the mask, I can feel my pores tightening. It's truly refreshing. The mud mask is really pure with only 7 ingredients great for skin care: Pure Dead Sea Mud, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Organic Calendula Oil, and Hickory Bark Extract. These ingredients are also awesome for hair and I am going to try it as a conditioner. For all of these uses, $24.97 is a steal for a pure, all-in-one product such as this one. Make sure you try it out and order yours today!

Thank you InstaNatural for the products; you all are awesome! Thank you Brandbacker for the opportunity.
