I recently made a decision that I'm really excited to tell you all about: I became a stylist with Stella & Dot! I went back and forth a lot on whether or not sharing this on the blog was the right thing to do. It was a tough decision because of a tug-of-war between two main points.
1. I know that if you read this you either really support fashion or really support me, so you'd likely be happy about the news either way. But...
2. I never want this space to feel like something I'm selling or shoving down anyone's throat. I've actually turned down some opportunities and free products in the past few months because I really want to make sure that anything I'm telling you is something I 100% believe.
But underneath my feelings against self-promotion, I realized that this is something I really believe in so I had to share!
First of all, I love direct sales. It will allow for me to continue building a freelance career but help ease the months on/months off stress of an irregular paycheck. It's also a fun and supportive community that has already given me such a positive welcome. But most of all, I'm just a million percent obsessed with the Stella & Dot brand. It's bold, fashion-forward, and high-quality. I loved it all online, but as soon as I saw it in person, I was a goner. I want every single piece!
But until I can dominate the entire collection one by one, I've put together my Top 10 Stella & Dot wishlist items. Enjoy!
And as a supreme thank you to my lovely readers, I'm offering an exciting giveaway of my absolute favorite piece of the moment, the Rory Necklace.
I keep telling people that I gasped out loud when I got my shipment in the mail and I'm telling you, if you think it's pretty online, it's literally breath-taking in person.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this post and a winner will be chosen at random at midnight on Sunday, June 15th. (And it's not a requirement, but please feel free to subscribe to make sure you don't miss future giveaways! :) )
And (as if I'm not throwing enough at you) there's a new feature to the blog today. My friend Miche from Buttons and Birdcages had an inspiring idea to start a linkup focused on saying the positive things about others that you might otherwise keep to yourself. (She's pretty awesome.)
So here's my Weekly Love...
I admire my future sister-in-law (it's her birthday today!) because she's always pushing herself to go outside of her comfort zone, putting herself out there and trying new things. It's really inspiring!
My Stella & Dot mentor (and new friend) has a really busy schedule, but every time I've seen her she looks so cute and perfectly put together.
Pretty much every time I think about my mom, I laugh about something she recently said or did. And I think that's about the best quality a person can have.
My grandma has the absolute prettiest skin. Every time I see her, she looks so lovely that she literally glows. It's kind of amazing.
And I could go on and on and on about all of my family, friends, and coworkers, but I'll save some for next week! :)
**Update** Congratulations, Amanda! I know it will look beautiful on you!
