Dealing With Deadlines, Deadlines, Deadlines

It's the first day of winter...just moments from Christmas Eve...and I have two magazines in deadline mode for January issues!  I have menus and shopping to complete...a office party...and much wrapping to dive into.  Here are my coping mechanisms...
First, wear clothes I love!  Actually, my fall/winter clothes are my favorites.  We just hit sweater weather and I am all about boots, sweaters, and coats! I smile more when I am confident. 

Second, I take one day at a time.  I try to accomplish all I can each day with proper planning.  Making lists...checking them twice...and keeping them organized and separate from each other.  My magazine lists will not be on the same page as the shopping or holiday entertaining lists.  Separate list...and updated often.

Third, hang on to my joy.  I play Christmas music, and have Christmas movies on while I wrap gifts.  I make sure I do not lose the joy of the season amidst the deadlines. I choose positivity.

Sorry about the office pictures, but that is my home away from home right now.  These are all garments I have owned for a long time, but you are looking at
SOFT SURROUNDINGS TURTLENECK  (You will love these turtlenecks...see below)

LAFAYETTE 148NY WOOL VEST with LEATHER POCKETS (gifted from the brand.)
RHEA BOOTIES (Gifted from the brand) these are beautiful and very comfy!  I worked with these brands in recent past, but still wear and love their garments.

Deadlines are a  necessary evil in my business...so why fight them? How are you making it through holiday stress?



  1. Great attitude. Great advice. Great black leather jacket.

  2. Being comfortable in your clothes is the key, no doubt about it. You look good. Hang in there the work will get done.

  3. I am a list writer too. I can't imagine coping any other way!
