3 Ways to Up Your Game in the New Year

Happy New Year from my family to yours! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday and New Year’s Eve. As we strut into January with a tight hold on our New Year’s resolutions we may already have feelings of overwhelm and defeat. Yep, even on the 2nd day!  In my opinion, it’s not about hitting a weight goal, getting that promotion or looking like a “10” every time I leave the house. It’s about continuous growth in all ways possible to live a better, happier and more satisfying life. I’m not as far as I’d like to be, but I’ve come a long way, babes!

Happy New Year from my family to yours! Rayne Parvis, Goldie, Alley, Frida and Matt Parvis in Studio City, Ca.

Here are 3 easy way to be a “better you” by upping your game in 2018:

  1. Add a New Tool to Your Lifestyle: Write down 5 things you can learn that will make your life more stylish, fulfilling or a tad more awesome. What skill have you always wanted to have but have been scared to take the plunge? Pick at least one and do it! Sign up and pay for the training today. If you pay for it now, you will find time to make it happen. This may be taking a photography class at a local junior college, getting certified for that side hustle you’ve been thinking about or taking a sewing class so you can tailor your own clothes. Whatever your soul has been yearning for dive in. In December, I took a personal styling business class at School of Style. I’m already a certified Style Coach but the more I know about my craft the more I can give back to my clients and those around me. It’s always scary to invest a big chunk of change. My thoughts were what if I already know everything? What if it’s a waste of money? Blah, blah, blah. I was so inspired by learning new ways of doing business and services I’ve completely revamped my structure for Style By Rayne. Yay!

  2. Let Go of Whatever is Not Inspiring You: Before you can operate at your best, letting go of ill-fitting clothes, self-doubt, relationships you’re holding onto that no longer serve you or your universal purpose and whatever may be hanging out in your house…junk drawers, second bedroom that is filled with years of “maybe I’ll need that one day items” and/or storage units you’ve been paying monthly for that you haven’t been to in a decade. The less you are carrying into your future the more room you’ll have for new fabulousness. Whatever you need to do to get this done…do it darling! Take a look at a recent before and after a closet audit. Creating space is one of the keys to less stress for your mind.

  3. Hire Someone to Help You Be a Better You: When we try to save money and do everything ourselves we get less done. Admittedly, I am a total repeat offender in this category. I’m hiring a PR consultant to help me with PR…duh. Yes, I can sit there hour after hour, learning about this craft, read books on how to do it myself and spend endless hours researching who, what, when and where I should submit to. However, I don’t wanna! I’ve tried. I’d rather be shopping, volunteering or working on my business which I enjoy doing. What has taken me hours and hours to do, my PR expert knows the remedy and the future success recipe instantly. Another example, for my styling clients, I can take one look at a photo and know in under 3 seconds how we can improve their overall appearance. So, yes, hire that experienced expert to get you on your personal success track. Experts to consider; personal stylists(for real!), personal trainers, matchmakers, professional photographers for your business, branding agencies, nutritionist, professional organizers, dating coaches, interior designers and business coaches. Did I miss one? Leave in the comments below. 

May you all prosper and be a better you in 2018 and beyond. Check out my latest style expert spot, DATING, STYLE AND SEX RESOLUTIONS: EMPOWERING AIMS FOR 2018, on my dear friend and client’s award-winning podcast Girl Boner. No, it’s not as perverse as it may sound. It’s all about women empowerment in the bedroom and beyond. Woo-hoo!

About Rachel:

She is the proprietor and designer behind Explorbin jewelry design on Etsy. Since 2014 she has been creating nature influenced designs using Oregon Elk and Deer teeth and jawbones. Having the great desire to “Bring you into nature, and put nature on you!” she was motivated to read up on the spiritual meanings and representations of Elk and Deer. There are now has over 30 pieces you can see and choose from. Check out her Etsy store! (The animal parts she uses are already dead…they were not killed for jewelry purposes.)

Thanks to all who came out to support, love, learn and win. My heart and spirit is fluttering with gratitude. Book signings can be lonely and uneventful. However, when you have a trio of authors who are energetic, collaborative, fun and vivacious it’s a FABULOUS time.

Get Sassy, Sexy & Stylish with Girl Boner

Do you have friends in your life that no matter how much time has passed when you get together it seems like no time has gone by? August Mclaughlin is one of those women for me. On Dec. 22 I had the pleasure of being a guest on August McLaughlin’s award-winning podcast Girl Boner. Yes, Girl Boner. Don’t be afraid, it’s not trashy. I promise!

August and Ultimate Guide to Style:From Drab to Fab

August and I met an estimated 10 years ago as extras on a music video. We both were blonde, had dogs and the name Hagstrom in our bloodline. We instantly bonded and became friends.

Through the years we kept in touch through social media. When she messaged me to be on her birthday show to talk about holiday sex and fashion tips.  I was ecstatic and couldn’t wait to catch up! We both had come such a long way; getting married, becoming authors and making the world a more sexy place through our work.

Quick Closet Tip Shared on Girl Boner:

Organize your closet like a boutique. First by type, then by length and color. If you have walk-in closet hang pictures or hats on the wall. If your closet is messy you’re most likely will always say I have nothing to wear! If it’s neat, you can plainly see all your options.

LOVE YOU AUGUST! Thank you for being so authentic, warm and having me in your heart! It feels so good to reunite with such a sweetheart!

We have already made plans to do a book signing together on Jan. 31st(TBA) at The Open Book in Valencia.

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!
