!2017......-------> e x c i t e m e n t.....<-------! ! ! ! !
I'm beyond words of excitement with the start of 2017! I was determined to start this year off with complete dedication to focus, change and bettering myself all the way around!
Instead of making a long lengthy yearly goal list,
I decided to make a monthly goal list with breaking it down and achieving one weekly! This type of focus can clearly break down importance, timing, placement, etc. of the goal!
Creating a new logo for kourture, was a top priority and being able to create it myself was the goal! I had the vision, all that was needed was the knowledge on how to do it. So, I used my companion Google, researched and taught myself how to do it!
And so here we are today, Saturday, January 14th, 2017 with the new logo for kouture being born, shared and announced!
Anything is possible, when you set your mind to it! I am literally so excited with the new mind set, new goal planning tactics and being able to see constant progress in the new year! I will be sharing my "goal planning tactics" in the next upcoming blog!

taking the glitter and leaving the trail of my footprints to create, share & inspire!
hello to a new focus...
hello to the things I aspire & envision...
and most importantly...
hello to saying NO
and not feeling guilty!
Welcome a new year! I am so excited for 2017 to arrive and to have made the concious decision before it arrived to make changes for a better year with new beginnings!
The past couple years have been very tough to find that work life balance and my passion for writing & creating have been put on the back burner. Like many, focusing on making a living must take the priority; but I realized that without making priorities, saying no when needed, not allowing others to take advantage and not taking on more than what is needed was the problem in not achieving the balance!
Before the new year arrived, I made my list of what needed to change and the number one thing that was most important...was saying no and to stop letting people take advantage.
I have been so focused on trying to please everyone, always trying to accomodate, never saying no...even when it meant I would be miserable, work hours on end and bottom line there was not enough compensation or appreciation to justify any of it!
So, I start 2017 with the commitment to myself that there must and HAS to be a work life balance! Saying "NO" is a required part of life and no one should feel guilty when it is needed to be said. And, last but not least...knowing your self worth, believing in yourself and never allowing others to push you into work, activities, anything you don't want to do, etc. is the key to the balance of finding your happiness!
Cheers to a new year of beginnings!
I so look forward to this amazing new start...
commiting to making this happen & bettering my life overall =

"time for new beginnings,
time for reinventing,
time for following my passion..."
- koko kourture aka Kourtney K Prendergast
The road to life is ever changing, in which the need for reinventing is inevitable. The key is to always create more than you could have ever imagined...with each an every new beginning becoming more & more better than the last!
The time has come for me to take kourture to a level of pure blogging about all things I am passionate about! With the combination of my 24 years of retail management, marketing, customer service, fashion, sales, social media and concierge...
it's time to create, inspire and share!
With landing my dream job, Virtual Concierge, with the most AMAZING company EVER...
(a job involving shopping, organizing, planning...an absolute dream come true!)
it gave me the inspiration & flexibility to be able to finally incorporate
my passion of writing aka blogging!
So, one might be wondering what they can expect from my blog?!?
Here is where I will be able to share anything from fashion to love, my organization passion, my favorite products of hair, skin & makeup, business to pleasure, inspiration to motivation, writing to reading, happiness and good deeds, my coffee obsession to my tea love....to the sky is the limit on what one can find me writing about!
With every ending comes a new beginning and this new beginning is an adventure I have waited for a very long time and the road looks endless...
