My Dear Beautiful “Kat People”,
For those who don’t know, mark. is merging back with Avon. Which means, if I want to continue selling mark., I have to become an Avon representative.They announced it to all us reps (mentors and all) via a webcast on Thursday evening that was supposed to be our usual fun monthly call that is filled with community and fun product introductions, but instead it was basically a huge mass firing. So, sadly, it looks as though my time with mark. has come to an end.
This is not a decision I’ve come to easily, and quite frankly it was forced on me, as I love mark. and want to continue to be a representative for the brand. However, since I haven’t had enough sales in their eyes, I would have to pay $10 to sign up with Avon.
Ten dollars might not seem like a big deal to a lot of you but when you’ve gone almost five years with practically no income, it’s not something I can pull off, especially when I’ve already paid mark. to become a rep less than two years ago.
Many of the mark. reps have not taken this news very well. We are all pretty shocked by the way mark. has chosen to “celebrate” their 10th Anniversary. I wish the brand all the best and hope the (now) Avon reps are treated better in the future than they were this past week.
I have no choice but to take this as a sign and opportunity to focus more on my other, more creative ventures. This is a push that I kind of needed to go after my dreams more seriously.
This also gives me more freedom with this beauty blog and my beauty channel on YouTube as I won’t feel the obligation to always use mark. products or find comparable mark. products for what I did use.
As the old sayings go: “when one door closes, another one opens" or "God doesn’t close a door without opening a window”.
This means they’ll be no more “mark. Mondays" (not that I’ve really been keeping up with them anyway) and I’ve already deleted my old "Kat Sells mark." blog. If you want to send me an email you can now send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, you can no longer order any mark. products from my eBoutique, so I’ll be deleting the link soon and I’m also taking this opportunity to re-design the look of this blog.
I hope this opportunity will prove to be more silver lining than cloud and I wish much happiness and success to all of my fellow mark. girls.

Hey “Kat People”,
Did you know that mark. has some amazing jewelry besides all the great fashion and makeup?
If you’re into great statement pieces, you should definitely check out the Great Shape Necklace and the Great Shape Bracelet. Both feature coral enamel with goldtone trim. It’s the perfect pop of color to add that special something to an outfit. The bracelet stretches to fit practically anyone, while the necklace has a 7” drop and comes with a 2” extender.
If coral isn’t your color, you should check out the Great Angle Earrings that go great with the Rock Out Ring.

Hi “Kat People”!
It’s the first Monday of 2013 which means it’s time for me to keep my resolution of posting a mark. Monday every week! :)
This week I’m going to show you the new Change It Up Bag from mark. This fantastic bag is three-tone colored with blocks of white, pink and black but, if you zip up the middle, it easily becomes a two-tone black and white bag. It’s like having two bags in one! It’s made of faux leather and features silvertone hardware and lots of different pockets to hold all your essentials.

Hi there “Kat People”,
I was going to post this last night, but I guess tumblr was updating or something because I kept getting an error message that said they were working on something. So, I’m posting a Tuesday Edition of mark. Monday instead. :)
This week I’m going to tell you about some items that are “Holiday Exclusives" from mark. There are quite a few of them so I’ll be continuing with more next week.
First up from the Holiday Exclusives collection is the Drama Case eye shadow and liner palette. You can open this palette horizontally to see the six eye shadows or slide it open vertically for the four eyeliners and dual-ended applicator brush. These high-pigment eye shadows can be used either wet or dry.
Or if you prefer liquid liners or like to mix and match, there are four beautifully vivid shades of Metal Works liquid eyeliner for you to choose from. This shimmering liner has a long-lasting formula so it will last all day and won’t smudge or flake!
Up next we have the Light Show illuminating face powder. This illuminating powder includes shimmering shades of gold, peach and pink. It lasts all day and looks gorgeous on any skin tone.
Don’t forget the Powder Tool all-over powder brush. This limited-edition pink brush is super-sized with a fluffy head and includes soft , silky hair that allows for a smooth dusty of your favorite mark. powder.
And as always you can order any of these and many more fabulous items from my eBoutique: http://kmurakami.mymarkstore.com
