Day 3 of Books for Women by Women, with Rosie Molinary and giveaway





Good Morning, and welcome to Rosie Molinary, author of 
Beautiful YOU.

 Excerpt from Rosie ! 


Day 89
Focus on Your Best Feature

It’s a Friday night, the baby’s in bed, and the perfect way for me to relax
is with the newest episode of What Not to Wear. While I love Clinton Kelly
and Stacy London’s funny banter and good advice, my favorite part is
when the makeover recipient lands in Carmindy’s makeup chair.
“What do you see when you look in the mirror?” she always asks.
The answers go something like this: “Red, splotchy skin.” “Bags under
my eyes.” “Wrinkles.” You get the picture.
Then there is Carmindy’s refreshing but clear reaction.
“When I look in that mirror, I see great skin, amazing green eyes, and
a lovely smile.”
Carmindy gives each makeover recipient what we all need. She sees a
woman’s best feature, celebrates it, and then says, “Let’s make everyone
notice it.”
We each have that unique thing about us that draws someone’s eye
when they look at our face, but we forget about it far too often when we
distract ourselves in the mirror with what we don’t like.

Today
Consider your best feature. Is it your big, brown eyes, your smile
that lights up the room, or those sweet freckles you’ve had since you were a
girl? What makes your face distinctly unique? For today, style your hair or
put on makeup (if you use it) it in a way that highlights your best feature.
Then bask in the beauty that is uniquely your own.


Thank you Rosie, for giving us something to smile about, the beauty within us all~

  10. Looking hard to find that best feature. swalker287 at gmail dot com.

  11. Sound advice and perhaps it should be required reading for all girls to help with self esteem.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've always considered my eyes my best feature. But since I wear glasses, I try to balance my eye make-up. Thanks.

    Each day I uncover the beauty around me, a nice reminder to look at the beauty in me too. What a nice win this would be .

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sounds like a good read. I've always felt that my hair is my best feature. I have naturally wavy hair that turns into ringlets if I let it grow long.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Good morning Rosie! I know I am my own worst critic and am trying to correct that. I will add your book to my Christmas wish list. :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. We are our own best critics! This sounds like a great book!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Boy, I know I need to redirect my thoughts from my flaws to my better characteristics. This can be so tough to do!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hi Samm, I could benefit from this book, I need a reminder daily. I will be adding this to my must haves. Thank you for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Good morning Samm. A great looking book, to remember the you inside. Thank you Rosie.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Nice excerpt! This sounds like a great book! When I start my day I look in the mirror, walk away from the mirror, look at my husband`s face, tell him he`s no kid either and then I get to work with the makeup!

    Yipee! I won the book A Cluttered Life! Thanks again Mdm. Samm!

  21. It's easier to look in the mirror with rose colored glasses than it is to escape the reality of photographs, lol! But, I've learned to remember what our pastor often said, "It's not about me." When we turn our focus to others, our true beauty shines forth.

    ReplyDelete
  22. It is amazing how good qualities become invisible and less fortunate characteristics seem magnified when we look at ourselves. If she has tips for overcoming that, this is a valuable book!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Focusing on the best in each day is something I try to do. It is amazing how often I do not apply that attitude to my own self. I am definitely going to do this today!

    ReplyDelete
  24. That sounds like a great book. Putting it on my wish list. Vivian

    ReplyDelete
  25. This looks like a great book. We all need reminders to look for the best in ourselves and in others. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  26. This sounds like another great book! We all need that daily reminder....

    ReplyDelete
  27. How important it is to be reminded that we all have qualities that are beautiful especially in a society that puts so much pressure on 'beauty'. Our beauty comes from within...after all we are made in His image! Sounds great!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Rosemary B here:
    Excellent. All of us are guilty of "self abuse".
    I agree completely with pinsandneedles #29 above.
    Have a delightful day, beautiful ladies one and all ♥

    ReplyDelete
  29. We are all beautiful, it's so easy to get down in the dumps when life gets a grip on us! especially holiday times! Take time for yourself ladies (and gents)...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sounds like the lift that I could use, I tend to beat myself up quite a bit about my appearance (too many years with an abusive "X" husband, those scars run deep).
    Thank you for the chance for a wonderful read :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I don't know who has choosen these books but I want to read all 3 so far....are you going to publish a master list at the end?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Another wonderful book....we all need to be reminded at times that we are each beauties in our own way -- God creates each of us with unique loveliness. Thanks, Rosie, for that gentle reminder. :) Madame, you are making my Christmas wish list get longer! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  33. Another uplifting read. How many of us look for the best in others, yet fail to see the best in ourselves.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi:

    Well the book sound wonderful. I hope you will have nice days in Christmas, I will be on vacations soon.

    Have a nice day.

  35. We need this message instead of listening to all of the advertising aimed at selling us more stuff to make us feel acceptable.

    ReplyDelete
  36. My grandmother was a beauty with gray hair for more than 40 years... wonder if there is a chapter on that.

    ReplyDelete
  37. This one really sounds nice. Thanks for another great choice.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I Like the message in this book! Although, I'm not an ideal weight/height by industry standards, I've always been able to see myself in a good light. I have to thank my dear mother for instilling in me that I am of high value and worth. I'd love to say that God instilled those values in me but He knew my mother was a much more tangible avenue for teaching me to love myself. I've tried to pattern my mothering skills after my own mother. She grew up in the depression and endured extreme situations throughout her life but came out so strong and positive. This type of book teaches what my mother instinctively knew.

  39. I really need to tape this message up on my mirror so I can see it and remember every day to rejoice in my good features and accept the not-so-good :*)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I don't think I have any "best feature" - except maybe my old age. :) Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This looks like a book we all could enjoy. And good gifts for Christmas...We all are beautiful in every way. Thanks for the chance to win...

    ReplyDelete
  42. I must say that this book is bringing a wonderful message to see the beauty in yourself. This book is also a must to read. Thank you for introducing me to this author.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've tried to teach this to my daughters - self-acceptance. I don't always see the fruit of my labors though. :) Sounds like this might be a good book for them to read! blessings, marlene

  45. Its been years since I've seen these by-the-day books. I like that this one seems to be able to start any day. Thanks for sharing another great book!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I've always wanted to go on that show! I've always wanted the makeover. I was always the tomboy, and I never know what to wear. I think I need to read this book.. Good thing my husband loves me the way I am. I just need to learn to do the same.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Sometimes we need someone to tell us what our best feature is.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Isn't it funny that we can always quickly identify the absolute beauty in another person but fail to realize it in ourselves? I guess that's the humility that we were blessed with by God.

    ReplyDelete
  49. After reading this I know I NEED Carmindy!! "No"? Well...then I really do need this book Beautiful You.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I look in the mirror and I see a distinguished older lady, but inside I feel 25, will this book help me? Haha

  51. Oh, what a great book to read! It is hard to look in the mirror at myself and not notice every little flaw that I have. Thanks for sharing all these books with us!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love the idea of celebrating your best feature.
    Great advice.
    Thanks for sharing. I look forward to reading the book.

    ReplyDelete
  53. If every page is like this one This is a Must have book . We all need to look at our selves with a little more love and less critial, we all always hardest on ourselves. This is looking like a very promising book month.
    thanks ladies

  54. We are our own worst critic. Sometimes just a sweet compliment from a friend or even a stranger is all it takes to make one feel better about themself.

    I will read this book. As I age and look in the mirror now, all I see is new wrinkles and jowls forming. : (

    ReplyDelete
  55. Too many of us dwell on our negative aspects. This book is a reminder to focus on the positive.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Sounds like a good message we can all use!

    ReplyDelete
  57. The books message is something we must all be reminded of!! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete

  59. Unfortunately, my best feature is my feet and I am the only one who ever sees them. (except the doctor, when I break a toe ... which seems to happen more frequently these days)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Great advice! DH always tells me that I'm my harshest critic.

    ReplyDelete
  61. What a great message. It is true, when I look in the mirror I always see the features I don't like...thanks for reminding me to focus on my good ones. I can see this book building self confidence...sounds like a great book!! Thanks Rosie!!
