Implementing new ideas is always a little scary for me! I love doing flat lays though! So lets make it a weekly event! Introducing Flat Lay Friday where I’ll be making outfits to suit my fancy! I’m slowly adding Sarah to my inventory and I can’t wait to make cozy fall outfits for all!  Make sure to join my group to check out all the fun every week! I can’t wait to see you there!

Pennsylvania! We’re HERE!

Ladies! Hello! It’s been awhile!

Guess what I’ve been up to? We MOVED from Portland Oregon to a small town in (fairly) rural Pennsylvania! My little (not so little?) family drove for 5 days across the country! We drove through 10 states!

We drove with my younger two children and pup. My oldest daughter drove out with her father. The kids and dog did SO well!

Cold children waiting to check into the motel.

ALWAYS wearing LuLaRoe! My son loves his Gracie! And my daughter LIVES in leggings!

We’re settling in here and slowly unpacking!

My Why

So, this is something I’ve been thinking about quite a bit lately. Why did I want to sell clothes? To be a LuLaRoe consultant? LuLaRoe encourages you to explore this question, because if you can answer this you have intention. With intention comes action, with actions you have room to achieve the success you desire. I plan on making a video about this, but I thought writing it out would help me process it too.

Four years ago I chose myself, I chose the possibility of being happy rather than continue to play the roles of wife and mother in a marriage I was not happy in. Shortly after my 28th birthday I had a thought that shook me. And that thought was, “If I didn’t have kids with this man, I would not be in a relationship with him.” Once I said this out loud to another person it gave it more power, but I wanted to make sure this wasn’t a thought of having a hard time, or being in a rough patch, I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t foolishly walking away from a nine year relationship with whom I had three amazing and beautiful children with. There was many many things going on at this time of my life, and in my relationship that I won’t go into here, but I’ll just say that it wasn’t good, and it wasn’t healthy for me to be in, or for my kids to be around the stagnant energy that was in my home. So I left.

What is LuLaRoe? And how do I shop?

Have you been wondering what LuLaRoe is? Maybe wondering what the big deal is?

LuLaRoe is a clothing company. Pretty simple! They’re a company that doesn’t have stores! All LuLaRoe clothing is purchased through consultants either online through social media outlets, or through in home pop-up boutiques.  They offer dresses, skirts, tops, and leggings in a variety of styles. The thing that sets LuLaRoe apart is the variety! Each print is made into 5,000 garments, divide that by the sizes that are carried (00-24) and then those handful of pieces are split up and sent out to thousands of consultants!

*Graphic is out of date, but it’s still useful! 5,000 garments per fabric, over 45,000 consultants now! And growing!

So unlike department stores where you know that if you went into any given store, in any given area, they’d have the same things, every consultant with LuLaRoe is going to have a completely different inventory.

So that’s how it works… but what’s the big deal?

Comfort. Plain and simple…

Who doesn’t love to be comfortable? LuLaRoe has made styles that flatter all body shapes, they offer a huge size range for women’s clothing, and being a somewhat plus sized lady, I really appreciate the range. (They also make super cute kids clothes and men’s shirts!)

So now that you know the awesomeness that is LuLaRoe…how do you get some?!

If you know a local consultant, you can contact them, and touch and feel and try on all of the things. For some.. probably most of us, that might not be an option. Many consultants have a VIP shopping page where they post their inventory for sale. Some consultants have weekly sales, some keep it up, and only take it down when they’re doing an in home pop-up boutique sale–and it’s always changing. You can click to be added to my Facebook LuLaRoe shopping group or click my “Shop” option on the menu. Currently I have over 600 items and hold sales every Tuesday at 10am!

I hope I covered the basics! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me! I’d love to help guide you through your first LuLaRoe shopping experience.

Hello!!!

Welcome to my blog! Currently I am in the queue waiting to be a consultant for LuLaRoe. I am so very excited, for so many reasons, personally and professionally. I can’t wait to connect all of you to pieces of the LuLaRoe collection that are going to make you feel amazing!  My plan right now is to use this space to write about how the process of becoming a consultant is going, and then reflect  upon being a consultant! I will provide updates on upcoming sales, new inventory, and of course tons of pictures!
