Hair Stylist Wanted!!!

Hair Stylist Wanted

Guys and girls!  Apply now!  Hair stylist wanted!

Did I get your attention?  Hair stylist wanted.  Let me tell you, I’m not an expert with hair styling.  I’ve learned a lot in previous years and I’d love to share my knowledge as well as the knowledge of other wonderful ladies who offer their wisdom and support.

I’m so excited to share with you that Lilla Rose is offering a FREE SHIPPING discount on all new consultant kits until July 31st.  Yes!  You read that right.  Shipping is free for the rest of the month when you decide to take the plunge and join Lilla Rose as a hair stylist.  

A good hair stylist can be hard to find.  In fact, you yourself may be great at doing hair but never seem to have the time.  Or maybe you use that ponytail holder WAY too much.  That was me.  I always wore a ponytail or threw my hair up in one of those super huge jaw clips that would give me a headache.  I often threatened to chop off all my hair so that I could maybe do something with it.

No more!  Now I’m my own personal hair stylist and I do awesome at it if I do say so myself.  My secret is Lilla Rose.  Once I discovered a Lilla Rose flexi clip there was no turning back.  I was and still am hooked.  From the day my first XL clip arrived I knew I was done with the jaws of death(what I affectionately called those jaw clips) and made the total switch to Lilla Rose flexi clips.

As I’ve used and signed up to be a consultant with Lilla Rose I’ve branched out into their other hair items as well.  Their u pins hold up my hair with ease.  The head bands are wonderful and don’t give me a headache, plus they don’t slip around.  Bobby pins are super cute and work in anyone’s hair.  And can I just say I finally found a hair stick that I didn’t break shoving into a bun?

Since the flexi clip hooked me with Lilla Rose I want to share more about them today.  Flexi clips come in sizes mini through Mega.  Mini is the smallest possible size.  This is the size that my 5 year old with super fine barely there hair wears.  From there you go up to an extra small, small, medium, large, extra large, and mega.  Mega’s are huge guys!  You may think you have a lot of hair but most people are not going to need a mega.  

What I love most about the flexi clips is that you can use a different size for a different style or use one size for several styles.  Plus, did I mention all the cute styles they come in now??  You can get one to go with every outfit!  Great with jeans or a wedding dress, flexi clips are a must for every girl.  And guy too.  I’ve seen guys wear flexi clips in their ponytails or buns and even on their beards!

With all that said, I do want to say that if you take advantage of the free shipping offer on a consultant kit that you also have the opportunity to join some wonderful facebook groups with all the resources you need to succeed.  I joined Lilla Rose as a consultant for the discount.  I have six daughters.  That’s a lot of hair!  I knew that I was going to want to share my flexi clips with them and that we were going to want a variety.  I then fell in love with all the wonderful ladies that are a part of the team I’m on.  They’re super supportive and want to help everyone grow their teams and earn money while enjoying Lilla Rose.  Oh and did I mention getting to see some of the most awesome hair styles of all times?  Oh yeah.  Some of these ladies have a gift.

So, you can join Lilla Rose with free shipping until July 31st.  You can sell or just buy the kit and become a consultant so you get a discount and earn money back for buying products you love.  Included when signing through my site is being added to some wonderful facebook groups and having the support you need to grow a business if you choose.

I hope to hear from you soon!  Let me know what your favorite Lilla Rose item is if you’ve used them or tell me what you’d like to try first!  If you’re not ready to become a consultant that’s great too.  I hope you enjoy Lilla Rose as much as I do though.   Remember, hair stylist wanted!  You are wanted!  Once you join you can post your own hair stylist wanted sign as well and let the journey begin.

Decidedly Feminine

Decidedly Feminine

Blogging Through the ABC’s- Letter D

I don’t know about you, but I like to be feminine.  I like for other people to know that I’m a lady.  I consider myself decidedly feminine.  

 

Decidedly Feminine

 

There have been times that I wasn’t quite so feminine.  It was all I could do on days to pull on a pair of pajama pants and one of my husbands t-shirts.  I’d throw my hair in a ponytail and that’s all I’d do for the day.  I would be embarrassed if anyone just happened to pop over.  My husband didn’t especially feel I was attractive.  I personally did not feel good about myself or the way I looked either.  I was worn down.  I was tired.  I was overwhelmed.

I decided to take action.  I decided to be decidedly feminine.  Now I make sure that I get real clothes on everyday.  And I do it early in the day soon after rising.  I put my hair up or half up in a pretty flexi clip from Lilla Rose.  They help me to feel feminine.  

I like to wear skirts.  I feel feminine and pretty in a skirt or dress.  Dresses don’t make up as much of my wardrobe simply because I’ve been pregnant and breastfeeding so many years that they weren’t practical.  At some point in my life I’m hoping I can bring them back!

I have a favorite skirt.  It’s the Rainbow Denim Skirt from Deborah and Co.  I have it in regular and maternity and I find that it’s my go to skirt for wearing around the house or out and about.  I’d love to add this dress to my closet at some point!

Another decision I made was to stop wearing my husbands t-shirts.  I could find something that fit me that emphasized I was a woman without making me feel on display or being uncomfortable for me to move.  I settled on plain colored t-shirts in a feminine cut.  They fit well and look nice on me.  Sometimes they’ll have a v in the front but that’s okay because I normally layer them with a tank top or a nursing tank so that I feel more covered.  It also helps me to feel that my extra weight is held in a little better.

I also wash my face every morning when I get up.  Simply washing my face is a great way of helping me wake up and feel actually awake and capable of taking on the day!  I love my L’Bri facial system.  It’s a face wash, toner, and lotion trio.  I use the Deep Pore Trio currently and it’s amazing!!

After washing my face I’ll get the kids breakfast and start my coffee for the day.  After I set them down to eat breakfast I’ll go back to the bathroom and quickly apply some makeup.  On days I stay at home I love a soft natural neutral low key doesn’t take much look.  When I’m going to be out and about I take more care with my makeup.  Even  if I’m extremely rushed and behind I try to always put on mascara and eye shadow/liner.  It makes me feel pretty and feminine so it’s worth it!  You can check out one of my makeup posts for more information on what I use and how it looks!

If I’m going out I’ll try to spruce up a bit with some jewelry.  I don’t own a lot and none of it is high dollar, but I do have a few favorite necklaces and I love earrings.  I found that I rarely wore earrings.  The dangly ones would get caught in my hair.  So now I wear the dangly ones that I love when my hair is all up!  

Another fun way that I’m being decidedly feminine is in my aprons!  I love a good frilly cute apron.  Come on ladies!  If you’re going to wear aprons at least make sure they’re cute.  I even got two sets of matching mom/child aprons.  They’re so pretty.  I need to find a pattern and make some more aprons for myself.  They cover my clothes and still make me feel pretty.

I’m also finding a love of sweaters.  I don’t wear them much around the house since we have a woodstove and we stay toasty, but they’re replacing the sweatshirts that I’d throw on when I left the house.  There are so many cute sweaters and sweater designs out there ladies.  Try some on and find one that makes you feel lovely.

Another small thing that I’m doing is trying to have my nails done.  I don’t like to paint my nails because I hate when they chip.  I also don’t like the chemicals in commercial nail polish.  Instead I use Jamberry nail wraps.  They’re non toxic and work wonderfully.  They tend to last 1-2 weeks even when all the stuff I throw at them.  Plus they have some super cute decidedly feminine designs!

 

Blogging the ABCs- a new blog series

 

Falling into Autumn in Skirts #seasonalskirt

I so cannot believe that it is fall already!  I love Autumn for the changing colors and the cooler weather, but not for the shorter amounts of daylight.  If you follow my blog you know I’m participating in a blog hop all about wearing skirts!  So let’s talk about falling into autumn in skirts!

  What can I say, I love a good denim skirt.  I probably wear denim skirts 90% of the time.  Not lying.  That’s how much I love them!  The skirt above is one that I purchased from Deborah and Co.  It is sadly no longer available.  It was the Nantucket I believe.  They still have the denim rainbow skirt though which is awesome!  And the maternity version of that was my absolute favorite maternity skirt.    For the top I’m wearing a grey tank top topped with a grey short-sleeved tee-shirt.  Over that I have an adorable loose knit sweater.  I love sweaters in fall!  Honestly, I’d wear a sweater everyday if I wasn’t afraid I’d stain it up or tear it up with some of my normal daily activities. And then there are the shoes.  Remember I’m a shoe girl.  These are another pair of Chelsea Crew shoes that I got on sale off Zulily.  Really, Zulily is my go to place for shoes.  They have awesome sales and I can always find my size!  That’s a biggie for me because I have small feet.  Think tiny.  Let me give you a for instance, my 9-year-old daughter has recently started wearing my shoes. . .. and they fit her.  Yeah I’m fairly small here.  See below for a better picture of my footwear.

Okay so let’s see another outfit and another denim skirt!  This is an of the rose ruffle skirt from Love My Jean Skirt.   Love this detail!  This is a skirt I’ll wear for running errands or being out and about, I’ve even worn it to church with a dressier top.  

My pictured top is one that I got at a thrift store for $1.  Just a nice half button up, 3/4 sleeve polished cotton type shirt.  Love the blue hue.  I’m a blues and greens type of girl though I am trying to branch out a little and try out a few girly colors.

For instance, I wore my hair down the other day!  I know it’s shocking.  I tend to put it up so much that when fall started to pop up I wanted to try a few new styles.  In the below picture you see my hair slightly wavey(this is it’s natural I air dried it look) with a size small flexi clip in.  You can check out all kinds of flexi’s and other gorgeous hair accessories on my Lilla Rose website.

I am in love with Lilla Rose for hair accessories.  They are all I use anymore.  Great for my hair, no snagging, stays in no matter what I’m doing, looks gorgeous, and makes me appear put together even if I just twisted it up.  Yes please!

Something else I’m doing more of lately is my nails.  And I’m even doing them in girly colors!

The above picture is my latest Jamicure.  Jamicure is a manicure done by me at home using Jamberry Nails.  They are awesome!  Super easy to do and last up to 2 weeks.  I normally change mine around a week though because I like change and get bored with the colors I have.  The ones shown are Gala which is a new autumn design.  I was surprised with how much I LOVED this coloring!  You should definitely try out Jamberry Nails if you haven’t ever!  They are so easy and make such a great statement.  

Let’s talk a bit of makeup now too.  I don’t normally wear a lot of makeup.  But I have been wearing more lately as part of my lets not be frumpy persona.  I’m on a quest to make myself feel better about myself and I feel better when I know that I have taken time to make myself look nicer and put together.  I’m less likely to be flustered or grumpy.  So you might ask what I wear for makeup.  I have been wearing L’Bri makeup.  I use the compact foundation, brown mascara, blue eyes quad eyeshadow, plum eye liner, and brown mascara.  Some days I top with a slight blush and lipgloss.  I have been trying out a few of the lipsticks as well.  The entire line of L’Bri makeup and skin care are all natural and contain aloe vera as their #1 ingredient.  Very moisturizing and feel wonderful on your skin.  

The above photo was as I waited on my Azure Coop to arrive last month.   I got all “dolled up” including some jewelry.  Those are just some cheaper pieces from Walmart but they made me feel beautiful and I got several comments on them.   I have on a plain jane skirt.  It was knee length and just a straight skirt.   I have on a tank top that is white with a blue light weight sweater over the top.  It had three quarter sleeves.  I’m not normally a fan of 3/4 sleeves but do wear them just as fall is beginning as we’re apt to have some warmer days still.

Again I’m wearing my L’Bri makeup and a Lilla Rose flexi clip with my hair all up in a twist.  For a twist I use  size large.  My makeup is once again L’Bri and totally wonderful! Any questions?  What are your favorite skirts to wear in fall?  Do you say autumn or fall?  I use both interchangeably for myself.  Please let me know what you think!  Oh and check out the other blogs on the linky below!  Some awesome posts about skirts going on here!
