My new obsession : LulaRoe and a Giveaway!

Guys.. I must be honest.

I am usually one that strays away from "Direct Sales" companies. For some reason, they scare me.
When I first moved to this island, I met up with Kelsey for coffee. She was telling me all about how she was pursuing her dream and starting a business in Lularoe. Not going to lie, when I got back to the hotel, I had to google it.

Now I see it everywhere! I love going places and seeing different styles and patterns on other people. When you see Lularoe, you know it's Lularoe.

I am hooked.

The patterns and styles are all unique. There are only around 5000 pieces made from each pattern, meaning there is a slim chance that you'll ever see someone wearing your shirt! :)

Lularoe products are beautiful, soft, and comfortable. I am now a proud owner of 8 pieces. I own 1 Julia, 3 Randys, 1 Amelia, 1 Azure, and 2 pairs of GORGEOUSLY buttery leggings.

I went over to Kelsey's and did a little photo shoot so you could see a few pieces that she carries!!

Here is the Julia:
So comfy, and flowy!




This is a Julia with a Lindsey.


Here is the Classic Tee and the Azure skirt. I adore this look.
 Definitely one of my favorites as well!



I was able to dress up, and be super comfy for date night!
I just love the Julia.
I personally like to go up a size so its loose and flowing for me!


Kelsey wanted to say a few things to you guys:
"Hello! My name is Kelsey Bellmore, I'm 27, and I'm a Lularoe Fashion Consultant. I decided to start selling Lularoe after buying my first pair of leggings. I was hooked and the rest was fate. I was looking for a change of pace from my normal 9-5, and I saw what this company could give to me. Not only are Lularoe's clothes absolutely amazing, but so is the company itself. Lularoe's mission statement is "Lularoe; where through fashion, we create freedom, serve others, & strengthen families. A place where lives are being blessed & dreams are achieved through love, purpose, confidence, trust, & growth." No truer words have ever been spoken about a company. Not only is Lularoe blessing the lives of their consultants but they are blessing their customers with amazing clothing and confidence. I love that I get to help women feel beautiful everyday."

Now you can see why it's so easy to fall in love with these clothes. They are beautiful, comfortable, and make you feel so confident.

Want a chance to win a pair of leggings?
All you have you have to do is go join Kelseys FB page :

And after you've done that, comment Done! on here!
Kelsey will pick a winner next Sunday!!!
Good luck friends!

Until next time,
Jennifer

Etsy Spotlight: Create with Pen

Happy Saturday my friends!

I am back today with another Etsy shop that may be one of my recent favorites. 

I have changed my planning style. 

I still use my Erin Condren, but I am making sure its COMPLETELY functional, and less "pretty". Part of my new method is setting goals, and actually achieving them. Crazy right? w
Well along with being functional, I still wanted to make sure that it's inspiring and encouraging. Jen from Create with Pen on Etsy hand letters and water color paints her own stickers. They are beautiful, unique, and very inspiring. I love her lettering and the colors that she chose. 

These are kiss-cut stickers on beautiful paper, and they are amazing. Although she is a Canadian based shop, it only took 3 days to get to Hawaii. That is incredible. She also ships in a hard mailer which made sure that the stickers arrived in perfect shape.

Jen really works hard to make sure these stickers are beautiful and I am so honored that she sent these to me for review. 

Here are a few of the stickers that she sent me!





These are my favorite!!!






I am really obsessed with these stickers and cannot wait to use them in my planner. I am so thankful for Jen and her sending these to me!

If you want to get your hand on some of these for yourself, head on over to her shop! She offers her new releases for 30% off, so make sure you are following her on Instagram to make sure you catch them!

Until next time,

Etsy Spotlight: MakitonandCo

Good Morning Planner Ladies! <3

We are back today with another Etsy shop. This shop has such unique designs and that's what drew me in. Maki is the owner of MakitonandCo. Maki designs all of her own doodles and turns them into stickers with her husband. These stickers are seriously SO cute!

Maki was so kind and sent me some of the most beautiful and creative stickers I have ever seen. These are all kiss cut, and the colors are to die for. The paper she uses is so soft and smooth, which makes the colors pop.

My favorite part of the planning community is the uniqueness and kindness that comes out of it. This shop makes that clearly evident. My favorite sheet is the fall doodle sheet. I love everything about it!

Here are a few sheets she sent me:









As you can see, Maki has some of the most beautiful and adorable stickers I have ever seen. She is also so incredibly kind, and I have enjoyed talking to her and getting to know her through this process.

This planner community is something special and I am so glad to be part of it.

Thank you so much Maki for working with me, and for sending me these beauties.

Head on over to her Etsy and check her out:

Etsy Spotlight: Purple Trail

Hello friends!

I am back this lovely Wednesday afternoon with a review on quite an amazing shop.
This shop is different than most. Although they do have an Etsy shop, they are also a widely known online planner store. Although I don't use their planner currently, I may have to look into after seeing the quality and colors of these stickers.

Tamese reached out to me after I applied to their blogger program and asked if I would review their stickers, and of course I said yes. I emailed her on a Wednesday, and I had these stickers in my mailbox by Saturday. I was amazed.

Then I opened the package.

Purple Trail uses a vinyl type paper which makes the colors so bright and vibrant. I was so impressed when I received them. I immediately took photos because I knew I couldn't keep them in my photograph pile for too long, or else I'd end up photographing them with stickers missing. They are that great.

They offer 3 different sets and each set can be purchased in 3 8.5x11 sheets or 4 6x8 sheets.
They offer Planner Stickers, Teacher Planner Stickers, and Push Pin Planner Stickers.

I received the Planner Stickers set and the Push Pin Planner Sticker set.
I'm not a teacher or in school, so I didn't think it would be useful to me.
I am already obsessed with these, and can't wait for Purple Trail to come out with more.
Each set is $7.00, which if you think about it, is an amazing deal!

Below are the stickers included in each set!

Planner Stickers Set





Push Pin Planner Set





As you can see for yourself, these stickers are amazing, and the colors are to die for.

I can see these stickers being a huge hit in the planner community.

Like I stated before, Purple Trail is also a planner company that allows you to completely customize your planner. I have never used one, but have heard really great things about them. If there planners are anything like these stickers, I can assure you that you will not want to miss out.

They have both a website and an Etsy shop which I'll put below.

I just wanted to thank Tamese for allowing me to review these, and for sending them so quickly. I think these are amazing stickers, and will definitely be added into my go-to sticker stash.

I hope you have a great rest of your week, and that you head over to Purple Trail and check it out for yourself.

Until next time,
Jennifer

Etsy Spotlight: Paper Tails n Pigtails

Happy Friday!
It's finally here. Anyone else with me? :)

I have had the pleasure of working with Tonia from @papertrailsnpigtails on Instagram. She owns a shop that specializes in ring bound planner dividers, paper clips, and dashboards!

This is very different from what I'm used to reviewing but it was so cool to see new accessories within the planner community. She sent me some of the cutest goodies. I've just started using a personal ring bound planner, and she sent me goodies that matched my planner and my personality perfectly. I was so impressed with these dividers, that I know I'll be making purchases in the future.

Below are the goodies that she sent.



She included two sets of the gold, but one has already made its way to my planner!



Aren't these floral bow clips GORGEOUS!?


The quality of the dividers is incredible. They are laminated which makes them very durable and portable which I need. And these paper clips are even PRETTIER in person.

I am so thankful she sent these to me, and I will definitely put them to good use. Stay tuned on my IG, I may be giving away a paperclip or two!!!

Head on over to her Etsy shop and check her out!


I hope you have a great weekend!

Until next time,
Jennifer

Etsy Spotlight: The Ickleblogger

Hey pretty planner people!

Long time no talk! I'm sorry that I haven't written in awhile, but I'm just starting to get settled after our trip. We had such an amazing time at home with our families, it kind of made it difficult to come back!

But, alas, here we are!

I am back today with another amazing Etsy Shop review.

The Ickle Blogger is a shop from the UK. I had found her on Instagram and what had drawn me to her shop was the adorable "Beans" that she had listed in her shop. Usually when I order from shops not in the US, I expect quite a long shipping time. But with this shop, they arrived SO quickly. I was completely shocked.

But besides the shipping, the quality and color of these stickers are perfect. I love functional stickers and they are always my go-to. The quarter boxes from her are definitely a staple in my collection. The price is also incredible. You can definitely get a lot for your money!

Here are the stickers that The Ickle Blogger sent me:

Colored Balloons
(These also come in glitter)


Mini Glitter Flags
These fit perfectly in the Sew Much Crafting WO1P with grid! I have stocked up on these!


Light Glitter Quarter Boxes


Bright Color Quarter Box


Glitter Computers


Light Quarter Boxes


Ickle Bean Planner People
These are BY FAR my favorite!!!


Ickle Bean BBQ Chefs
SOO cute! Even cuter in person!


Bright Glitter Quarter Box


Now you can see what I'm talking about. They are even prettier in person, and the prices are amazing.
I hope you head on over to her shop, and check them out!


I hope you all have a happy Wednesday, and a great rest of the week!

Until next time,
Jennifer

Etsy Spotlight: SamanthaMaeSticks

Happy Friday friends!

I hope you all had an amazing week!

I'm back with another amazing Etsy shop for you to see!

Samantha is the owner of Samantha Mae Sticks! Being in Hawaii, its often difficult to find planner stickers that don't take 10 days to arrive. When I saw that she was from Hawaii, I knew that I had to make an order. Not only did these stickers arrive the day after they shipped, but they are ADORABLE.

She offers both matte and glossy stickers. I am a matte girl, but she included a few extras that were glossy. Both paper types are great quality.

I did order most of these stickers, and am so glad that I did. I love her colors, and the kiss-cut is great. Majority of her items that are posted come in different colors and patterns. There are several stickers that you can get in glitter as well! She is awesome to work with, and such a sweetheart.

My favorite stickers that she included are definitely the glitter balloons! I cannot wait to use these to mark birthdays and special events that we have coming up! I will definitely be purchasing more.


Below I included photos of the stickers that I received:

Glitter Balloons
 

Glitter Laptops


Freebie


Cat Icons


Daisy Sunflower Coffee Cups
(These are the CUTEST stickers ever)


Floral Planners


Doodle Planners


Heart Bubbles


Heart Labels


Floral Labels



Doodle Coffee Cups



Freebies Included


I am so thankful that Samantha worked with me, and that I now have a dealer on my island haha!

If you are from Hawaii and you read this, you definitely want to check her out for quick shipping and great products!

But if your not from Hawaii, you will STILL want to check her out!

Below is her shop link:


I hope you go and check out her shop! I promise you won't disappointed!

Until next time,
Jennifer





Weekend Update

Hello friends! What a weekend it has been! I feel like not only was this weekend full of relaxation, I was also able to get a lot accompli...
