Ladies, Use “Stylebook” and You Don’t Have To Worry About Last Minute Styling Again

Ladies, Use “Stylebook” and You Don’t Have To Worry About Last Minute Styling Again

Ladies, we all know this story. It’s time to get ready. You open up your over-stuffed closet and start rummaging through the endless selection of clothes, but alas, you have nothing to wear! All of those must have items that you simply can’t part with aren’t doing it for you. They don’t fit right, they don’t match your mood. We all experience this issue more than we’d like to admit. It’s an absurd phenomena where even with an abundance of choice you still come up empty handed.

As women this can be very frustrating. You know that your clothes are nice, but you just have trouble matching and styling them. It becomes even more difficult to style our outfits at the last minute, as we constantly change our minds and switch up our outfits as we get ready.

Even though we come out looking flawless, we are hindering ourselves by spending so much time picking out our outfits and perfecting the details. In all honesty, we aren’t going to care as soon as we walk out of our front door. So there’s no point in making ourselves late to our obligations by waiting until the last minute to style our outfits.

The answer to all of your fashion problems: Stylebook

The app Stylebook is a visualized catalogue of all of the items that you have in your closet. Remember Cher’s closet from Clueless? With the virtual outfit designer that she used to sift through her enormous collection of garments?

It’s similar to that, but you don’t have to be a millionaire to own it. You just need a smartphone with enough storage to download the app.

Stylebook doesn’t only save you time picking out outfits, but it gives you an overview of the items that you already have so you don’t waste your money buying duplicate styles.

Just a heads up, you will probably get addicted to this app. It’s so interactive and will open your eyes to possibilities that you didn’t realize were already in your own closet!

You can start off by scanning through an overview of your closet to see what you’re working with. Then, you can pinch and drag those items to create new styles and save them if you design a winner.

    After putting together some looks, you can sort them into categories. Have a business meeting and aren’t sure how to dress to impress? Just pull up your work-outfit folder and pick out a pre-designed outfit, styled by yours truly.

    The app also saves your previous outfits, so you can gauge when you wore a certain outfit last and where, so that you don’t have a repeat.

      You can also use the shuffle feature, that mixes up the looks that you’ve already put together in order to design something completely new! You can share your outfits on social media, with friends, or transfer them to another device.

      If you reach a point where you still feel like you truly have nothing to wear, you can shop directly from the app, browsing items that fit your personal style.

      The app also features personalized statistics to keep track of your favorite styles.

        With the help of Stylebook, you’ll never suffer the panic of finding something to wear at the last minute. Just pull up a look, pluck it out of your closet, pose in front of the mirror a few times to see what you’re working with and go take on the world.

        15 Best Organizing Tips For Office Organization and Getting More Done

        You may think that you don’t have time for office organization, but if you really knew how much time that disorganization cost you, you’d reconsider.

        Rearranging and moving piles occasionally doesn’t count. Neither does clearing off your desk, if you swipe the mess into a bin, or a desk drawer.

        A relatively neat and orderly office space clears the way for higher productivity and less wasted time.

        Organizing your office doesn’t have to take days, it can be done a little at a time. In fact, maintaining an organized office is much more effective if you treat it like an on-going project, instead of a massive assault.

        So, if you’re ready to get started, the following organizing tips will help you transform your office into an efficient workspace.

        1. Purge Your Office

        De-clutter, empty, shred, get rid of everything that you don’t need or want. Look around. What haven’t you used in a while?

        Take one area at a time. If it doesn’t work, send it out for repair or toss it. If you haven’t used it in months and can’t think of when you’ll actually need it, out it goes. This goes for furniture, equipment, supplies, etc.

        Advertising

        Don’t forget about knick-knacks, plants (real or artificial), and decorations – if they’re covered with dust and make your office look shabby, they’re fair game.

        2. Gather and Redistribute

        Gather up every item that isn’t where it belongs and put it where it does.

        3. Establish Work “Zones”

        Decide what type of activity happens in each area of your office. You’ll probably have a main workspace (most likely your desk,) a reference area (filing cabinet, shelves, binders,) and a supply area (closet, shelves or drawers.)

        Place the appropriate equipment and supplies are located in the proper area as much as possible.

        4. Close Proximity

        Position the equipment and supplies that you use most within reach. Things that you rarely use can be stored or put away.

        5. Get a Good Labeler

        Choose a label maker that’s simple to use. Take the time to label shelves, bins, baskets drawers. Not only will it remind you where things go, but it will also help others who may have a need to find, use, or put away anything in your workspace.

        6. Revise Your Filing System

        As we move fully into the digital age, the need to store paper files has decreased.

        What can your store digitally? Are you duplicating files? You may be able to eliminate some of the files and folders you’ve used in the past. If you’re storing files on your computer, make sure you are doing regular back-ups.

        Here’re some storage ideas for creating a smooth filing system:

        • Create a meeting folder – Put all “items to be discussed” in there along with items that need to be handed off, reports that need to be given, etc. It’ll help you be prepared for meetings and save you stress in the even that a meeting is moved up.
        • Create a WOR folder – So much of our messy papers are things that are on hold until someone else responds or acts. Corral them in a WOR (Waiting on Response) folder. Check it every few days for outstanding actions you may need to follow-up on.
        • Storage boxes – Use inexpensive storage boxes to keep archived files and get them out of your current file space.
        • Magazine boxes – Use magazine boxes or binders to store magazines and catalogs you really want to store. Please make sure you really need them for reference or research, otherwise recycle them, or give away.
        • Reading folder – Designate a file for print articles and documents you want to read that aren’t urgent.
        • Archive files – When a project is complete, put all of the materials together and file them away. Keep your “working folders” for projects in progress.
        • File weekly – Don’t let your filing pile up. Put your papers in a “To File” folder and file everything once a week.

        8. Organize your Desktop

        Now that you’ve streamlined your desktop, it’s a good idea to organize it.

        Use desktop organizers or containers to organize the items on your desk. Use trays for papers, containers for smaller items.

        Don’t forget your computer desktop! Make sure the files or images are all in organized folders. I’d recommend you clear your computer desktop everyday before you leave work.

        9. Organize Your Drawers

        Put items used together in the same drawer space, stamps with envelopes, sticky pads with notepads, etc.

        Use drawer organizers for little items – paper clips, tacks, etc. Use a separate drawer for personal items.

        10. Separate Inboxes

        If you work regularly with other people, create a folder, tray, or inbox for each.

        11. Clear Your Piles

        Hopefully with your new organized office, you won’t create piles of paper anymore, but you still have to sort through the old ones.

        Go through the pile (a little at a time if necessary) and put it in the appropriate place or dump it.

        12. Sort Mails

        Don’t just stick mail in a pile to be sorted or rifle through and take out the pieces you need right now. Sort it as soon as you get it – To act, To read, To file, To delegate or hand off. .

        13. Assign Discard Dates

        You don’t need to keep every piece of paper indefinitely. Mark on files or documents when they can be tossed or shredded.

        Some legal or financial documents must be kept for specified length of time. Make sure you know what those requirements are.

        14. Filter Your Emails

        Some emails are important to read, others are just not that important.

        When you use the filter system to label different types of emails, you know their priority and which to reply first.

        15. Straighten Your Desk

        At the end of the day, do a quick straighten, so you have a clean start the next day.

        Bottom Line

        Use one tip or try them all. The amount of effort you put into creating and maintaining an efficient work area will pay off in a big way.

        Instead of spending time looking for things and shuffling piles, you’ll be able to spend your time…well…working and you’ll enjoy being clutter free!
