I haven't been to a class for new consultants yet. This one was on Skin Care - I think I'll start the new consultant class in September. I took a friend with me and she got a a cute goodie to take home with her for helping me out! It was truly a "girlie" evening, but even so I had a lot of fun and it was great to hang out with a friend I hadn't seen in a while! The class was basically a makeover session and as consultants we got to look on while the directors demonstrated...so I guess there was a little new consultant training in it for me, too!
I used to think that doing anything like Mary Kay was too fru-fru for me, but this past year I have found myself in Creative Memories Groups, in Stampin' UP, and now selling Mary Kay myself! I never would have guessed that! And it's all been so much fun b/c I get to spend time with my friends and help them out and get to meet new people, too. I haven't really got off and running with Mary Kay yet. I am working on it, though. It's just such a busy time since we're planning a wedding. Every weekend it seems there is something going on...but my director assures me that I can enter into it at any level and take it at my own pace...even if right now I do all my sells via my website or simply catalog orders. I do plan on having my first party ~ my Debut party, if you will ~ on August 29th (If you would like to come let me know and I'll forward you an invite)!
The parties are a lot of fun b/c you get to try out all the products first and see what you like and what you don't like and it's also a great time socially! Saturday at Kathy's Stampin' UP workshop it was as much fun to just hang out with everyone as it was to play with the stampin' stuff and it's the same way when we get together to scrapbook. I hope my own Mary Kay parties are that way once I get started and since I am not as creative as these other ladies, cosmetics are great for me b/c I use a lot of it ~ cleansing, moisturizing, protecting, fragrance and of course color!! I love to get pampered and it's nice to be able to pamper myself. I give myself pedicures a lot, too...the only things I go "out" for are manicures and massages! Hmmm...maybe I should invest in that massaging chair that Michael like so much - tell him it's a present for him that we both can benefit from! Bwahaha!! (Seriously, that doesn't sound like a bad idea - maybe after we move into a house...)
That turned out to be a girlie post, huh!?!?
