Stylemindchic Lifestyle + Upgraded Living Magazine

For the last three years I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Upgraded Living Magazine on the ‘New Year, New You’ makeovers. It’s been a labor of love and I always walk away from the experience uplifted by the women and their stories. I wrote this post on ‘The Fine Art of Generosity‘ while we were in full swing with the makeovers. The spirit of generosity is infectious, from boutique owners, salon owners, stylists and the hardworking magazine staff. It’s all generated from the spirit of giving. Seeing these beautiful faces light up, after the styling, primping and pampering, makes the effort all worthwhile. When the magazine arrived at the house, I quickly opened to the makeover pages, to see the final results. As you can see, I had a surprise in store (note the first quote of the article).


The women are glowing! Nothing like a fresh look to start out a new year, brimming with opportunities. Thank you to Upgraded Living Magazine, and Editor-In-Chief Briana, for asking me to be part of this wonderful series. For more on the ‘Fine Art of Generosity‘ and earlier makeovers here and here.

This is awesome. As are you, Heather. xoxo

What a wonderful way to serve your community, Heather. I am always moved when I read success stories like those featured in Upgraded Living. We have a cause in our community called FUSION – Friends United to Shelter the Indigent Oppressed and the Needy. We hold an art festival the first Wednesday of August. Thank you for sharing this.

Thank you, Lynne! Your event sounds wonderful as well. It feels so good to give back, doesn’t it? xx

Hi Heather, the stories of the women are touching. It makes me realize how blessed I am. I hope to keep their stories in my mind and heart as I start my week, and if I start to do some inner whining about life, I will be reminded of how good I have it in life. xx Nancy

I agree, Nancy. It is all such a timely reminder for the life, and blessings, we do have.

Congratulations! Lovely start to the new year.

Congratulations Heather!! It’s such a wonderful cause and I know how much you enjoy helping these ladies! Seeing your name in the magazine must have been such a lovely surprise!! You deserve all the accolades my friend. You’re such a caring, good hearted woman.

Jen dear, thank you! I do enjoy this project. It does my heart good to give back, as I know it does for you as well. Have a wonderful week, Jen!

This is such a nice cause and magazine Heather and how exciting to see your quote on the first page! I love how Chico is such a nice community and does things like this to help other women. Loved scrolling through and seeing the makeovers too. :) Have a great weekend.


It’s really a fabulous magazine, Dale. I’m so honored to be part of the makeovers each year. I agree, Chico is really a very generous place (as you already know!;). Happy weekend! xx

Heather so excited for you! What a lovely magazine and so wonderful they quoted you. I love the idea of helping these women feel better about themselves onto a better life. Not surprised at all that you do this, it’s so you.The women all look so pretty. Wonderful! Congrats Heather. xo Kim

Ahhhh, thanks dear Kim! This is such a fun collaboration every year. I’m just lucky to be part of it.
Happy weekend sweet friend!

Oh Heather, isn’t it exciting to see your name/words in print? This has to be one of the most fun collaborations to be involved in: working with other women to tell your story. This is a dream of mine. How wonderful to uplift the community in such a way. Story telling will never die – our modes of doing so have been creatively changed, but we need one another! I notice that the format for this magazine is ISSUU….I had tried it, wanting to upload my photos and write text, but I was never able to get it to work with me!

Do you know how to navigate ISSUU?

It is lovely. Continue this work of love my friend. Anita

Hello Anita-so true! Being involved in supporting other women, who are on the right path, feels great. I’ve had so much fun working with Briana on these projects. As you know, Upgraded Living Magazine is a print magazine. They submit it to ISSUU for the online edition. I’m not sure how that all works but I’d be happy to check with them or share an email for you to connect on it. Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend! xx
