Marvelous Girl Has Moved!

Posts Tagged ‘giveaway

Life management expert and bestselling author Brook Noel says historically more than 80% of New Year’s resolutions are abandoned by late February because most people view resolutions as another pressure in an already pressure-filled life.

For that reason, Noel was generous enough to give one lucky Marvelous Girl reader a copy of her book The Make Today Matter Makeover! The first person to email about the giveaway will win Noel’s book.

Whether you want to curb your caffeine cravings, stop procrastinating or really reduce stress in 2010, Brook Noel is hosting a FREE 5-day Facebook Workshop (Jan. 11-15) based on her popular online course Transforming Resolutions Into Reality.

Here’s a quick outline of the program:
DAY 1: Ready, set, Goal!
Brook shares the crucial formula for creating a successful goal. Participants will apply these principles to choose a goal for 2010.

DAY 2: Visualize Success
During day two, Brook shares how seeing is believing when it comes to goal-work. Participants will learn the science behind visualizing and affirming a goal and begin to create a visual goal map.

DAY 3: From Vision to Plan
With our goal firmly in mind, we turn our attention to creating an overall big-picture goal plan to takes us from point A to point B.

DAY 4: The Goal Zoom-lens
During day four, participants continue to work with their goal plan and learn how to create manageable monthly, weekly, and daily steps to guide them toward success.

DAY 5: Action, Attitude and Energy
During our final lesson, Brook shares how attitude, action, and energy lead to long-term success and provides tips for maintaining motivation and high-energy as participants get ready to embark on a journey to make their goals a reality!

Aging not only occurs in the skin, but also in the hair, eyelashes and eyebrows.  Not only can the hair on your head become gray and thin, but aging plays a key factor in slowing down the renewal process of eyelashes – and the last thing a woman needs to worry about is the loss of her flirty lashes.

Both eyelashes and eyebrows may turn gray and become sparse as follicles become dormant and melanin is produced by follicles. These aging factors – in addition to outside aggressors like mascara, eyelash curlers, make-up removers, medications, etc., which all ravage lashes over the years – mean that lashes need an extra boost.

Nutritional supplements, vitamins and other products will not stop the aging of lashes and brows, but an eyelash conditioner that strengthens lashes will help lashes stay on the lid longer, allowing them to grow.  Try a product like neuLash eyelash conditioner, which promotes healthy, natural lashes in as little as two weeks.  This is a favorite among celebrities because it’s paraben-free and includes essential proteins, peptides, vitamins and moisturizers.  It really takes years off your eye area.  To see before and after pictures, click here.

neuLash is available for $150 at, Saks Fifth Avenue and top spas nationwide.
