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.

    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.

        Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

        Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

        What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

        As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

        The Success Mindset

        Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

        The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

        The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

        The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

        How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

        How To Create a Success Mindset

        People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

        1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

        How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

        A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

        There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

        2. Look For The Successes

        It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

        3. Eliminate Negativity

        You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

        Advertising

        When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

        4. Create a Vision

        Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

        If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

        An Inspirational Story…

        For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

        What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
