100 Days of Connection
This challenge will stretch you in ways you never knew you could or needed to be stretched, but I really encourage you to stick with it! You can start whenever you'd like, but don't procrastinate it.
1. GET A JOURNAL OR JOURNAL APP TO RECORD YOUR THOUGHTS AND EXPERIENCES DURING THIS 100 DAYS.
My favorite way to journal is with an app called DayOne.
2. TRY SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT WITH YOUR LOOK
3. BEGIN LEARNING THE ART OF GRATITUDE
Write 3 'Thank You' letters to people who have brightened your life. You can do this via handwritten letter, text, or whatever method you prefer. But remember that people ALWAYS love handwritten notes!
4. PLAY A GAME ON SOCIAL MEDIA
There are a ton of ideas out there for things you can do for this, but here are a few Maskcara specific ideas: Spot the Shade, Spot the Difference, Finders Keepers, etc.
5. STAND OUTSIDE YOUR NEAREST SEPHORA AND TELL PEOPLE THEY ARE MAKING A HUGE MISTAKE SHOPPING THERE
6. SET A NEW GOAL
A goal is just a dream until you have assigned a due date and made it specific enough to know when you've reached it.
7. SUPPORT A FRIENDS BUSINESS BY REFERRING PEOPLE TO THEM OR POSTING ABOUT THEM ON SOCIAL MEDIA
One of the biggest things that sold me on Maskcara when I started looking into it was that they encourage their Artists to help their customers find the best products for them whether it be Maskcara products or not. I love this. I have a few friends who sell other brands of makeup and I don't have to feel guilty promoting them.
8. DO A MAKEOVER ON A FRIEND TO MAKE HER FEEL REALLY BEAUTIFUL
9. DO SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN NERVOUS ABOUT GETTING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE TO TRY

11. COMMENT ON 3 FRIENDS PHOTOS WITH PERSONAL COMPLIMENTS
12. POST AN UNPOPULAR OPINION AND ASK YOUR FRIENDS TO SHARE THEIRS
13. GIVE EVERYONE YOU TALK TO TODAY YOUR FULL MINDFUL ATTENTION
In our world, we spend so much time multi-tasking (read: being distracted) and more often than not our minds are in a different place when we're talking with someone. I find this happening a lot with me and I try to catch myself and bring it back to the moment I'm in with the person I'm talking to.
