“Your Best Friend!” (YBF)
Stacey Schieffelin, Ford model and makeup guru, successful entrepreneur and true believer in empowering women to live the life they dream, is as approachable as the girl next door. Stacey shares her knowledge about how to look and feel your beYOUtiful best every day. For Stacey, putting your best and fabYOUlous face forward is a sign of self-respect, not vanity. She believes every woman deserves to have her own customized and personalized blueprint that maps out her unique path to bold beYOUty and self-confidence. Stacey founded Models Prefer 18 years ago; an international cosmetics company that has been sold on HSN in the U.S., QVC in the U.S., U.K. and Germany. The MP brand remained the #1 color cosmetics line on QVC in the UK for more than eight years.
Beauty is a natural extension of Stacey’s fun, engaged relationship with her customers (girlfriends); best demonstrated through her Pajama’ Party at Sea Cruises. “I started out talking to women one-on-one about what makes them beYOUtiful; first on HSN and QVC, and then in our unique Pajama’ Parties at Sea, traveling the world on a cruise ship devoted to fun, beauty and empowerment. Women embraced the ideas, products and friendships we were sharing. The phrase “best friend” was voiced over and over as they described their feelings about the products and being part of our community. Without question, the perfect name for our new brand “your best friend” (ybf) came from our girlfriends!”
Stacey is on the board of directors of Fashion Group International, Count Me In and is an active member of Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD), Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, Girls, Inc., American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society.

It was just a few hours into the hostage crisis at the Lindt Café in Sydney, Australia when I received information from my source within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that this evolving incident will be a catalyst for many events inside the U.S. and throughout the West. According to my source, the hostage crisis created by an Islamic terrorist in Sydney, Australia “is not, nor will it be, a ‘one off’ event. “Don’t be fooled, this will be a ‘game-changer’ in many ways for not just Australia, but for all of the West. Maybe not immediately, but in short order. And this [Obama] regime will use it to their tactical advantage.”
According to this DHS source who is well-embedded at a fairly high level within this political leviathan inside the beltway, high level DHS briefings made late Sunday (Washington, DC time) confirmed that various police and intelligence agencies throughout New South Wales and Australia not only know the identity of the perpetrator at the Lindt Café, but “[they] have had numerous dealings with him over the last several months.” This source stated that “he is not just some random unknown perpetrator without a history, but has made his intentions known for some time. Once or if the truth comes out, you will see that he is also known by the CIA.”
According to this DHS source, “the war has officially reached Oceania. The cancer of ISIS, created by Western intelligence and government agencies will quickly metastasize within the U.S. and throughout the West. The political movement disguised as a religion (Islam), and its armed wing known as ISIS, along with the Muslim Brotherhood as their political ambassador will take up their respective roles in a Hegelian dialectic created by the West in short order.” Article Link - CLICK HERE
