Greetings from Boston! Today we have a guest post by my beautiful sister, Julia, who recently became a Mary Kay beauty consultant. 

First of all, hi!

I am Jess’s sister, Julia, and I am also a current NYU grad student.

I am a student in the Silver School of Social Work and currently hold an internship at an outpatient mental health center, where I do unpaid labor as a therapist-in-training. Ever since I was a child, I’ve always enjoyed an interesting person or two: 

Hopefully someday I will make money doing what I do, but at this point in time, I am technically paying thousands of dollars to give therapy to other people. Some of my clients pay, but I sure as heck don’t get the money!

That being said, being a baby therapist can be stressful.  In my free time I have a lot of hobbies I commit to, until I realize I have a final to write or that I’m behind on process recordings (they’re the devil!!). I also am in the business of doing odd jobs to save up money.  This includes wrapping Christmas gifts, babysitting, etc.

Most recently, however, I became a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant.

How did this happen, you ask?  Well, I was offered a free (key word: free) makeover, I took it, and bought some products.  And then I realized, I could do this too! And it was fun.  And I could make money doing it, and I could do it in my free time. Also, it doesn’t involve selling my body, which is one of the only other professions I can think off of the top of my head where these sort of perks seem possible.


I’ve always played around with makeup, ever since middle school when I dressed like Avril Lavigne and gave myself raccoon eyeliner eyes.  I try not to do that anymore.

Besides being convenient, fun, and me getting 50% off all Mary Kay products, the best part of this whole situation is that I can share it with you guys!  I would love to throw you a party, give you a free makeover, or just help you pick out a holiday gift to put in the awkward Secret Santa grab bag you will inevitably have at your office Christmas party.

Or maybe, just maybe, you realize how awesome you are. And how hard you’ve worked this year, and that you really deserve a little treat. One that doesn’t involve empty calories, but lasting beauty!

Please visit me on my Mary Kay Site.

My favorite product right now is the Mary Kay Compact.  Each little box is magnetized so you can mix and match the colors you want- it makes getting ready to work or a night out very quick and easy!

You can order right from the site, or shoot me an e-mail, text, or phone call with your request!

And then visit me on my tumblr.

And then on my twitter.

Happy Holidays baby loves!
