Sandy a la Mode | Fashion Blogger LuLaRoe Dress - Talking about Independent Business Consultant Opportunity

Sandy a la Mode | Fashion Blogger LuLaRoe Dress - Talking about Independent Business Consultant Opportunity

You’ve seen me post about LuLaRoe before and I just have to say that I am in LOVE with their clothes and all of their fun prints. I first discovered them through blogs after I had moved to Utah, and was so happy to hear that there were so many consultants that were based here. One of my favorite consultants is Sadi of Lula Girls Blog. I met her at ALT Summit and we had become instant friends. I was intrigued that she was a full-time mom of 3 girls and did worked for LuLaRoe as well, basically from her home, hosting parties, and running her cute blog that is all about fashion inspiration drawn from LuLaRoe clothes. I’m not going to lie, if I didn’t have a full-time job as a healthcare IT consultant already, I would seriously considering being a LuLaRoe consultant. I love so many of their cute clothes, they sell flattering dresses, skirts, kimonos, tops, leggings, tunics, maxi skirts… in tons of cute prints. They do sell online but also the consultants host parties each week and it’s like a treasure hunt finding an item you love in your size. But also, I do own skirts from size XS – M and dresses from size XS – M as well. I’m normally a S-M in most other sizes but was surprised that I could fit into some of their XS items as well as L (if you belt it)! It’s almost like an addiction going around to the different parties trying to find cute clothes and you are bound to find something you love and spend a lot of money, HA! And I already know that the items are simply comfortable and very well made.

My girl Sadi is looking to help grow the pool of LuLaRoe business owners. LuLaRoe business owners who does one pop-up boutique per week makes an average of $1400/month. Those that do 3-4 boutiques a week average  $5600/month. LuLaRoe is currently manufacturing 35,000 pieces per week here in the USA (based in Corona, CA). All fabric prints are designed exclusively for LuLaRoe, which results in an immense variety. LuLaRoe is still a ground floor opportunity. With just over 1,000 consultants there will still be exponential growth. This is the time to be a part of this growing company if you are interested. There is also an opportunity to help other be successful in their business and receive bonuses for training, sharing the opportunity, and for growth and success across the company. Seriously, if you have been thinking about making a career move to fashion or if you are a stay at home mom looking for a side job or if you are just looking for another part-time job (that could soon become a full time one), then you should consider being a LuLaRoe business owner. You can do it from anywhere in the U.S.!!

Not going to lie, these photos were taken about a month ago, when it was colder out! It is now in the 70s, but hey, it was snowing last week, so you never know.  I love a black and white outfit with pops of a bright color, like this cobalt blue, or red, or hot pink. You can never go wrong with classic black and white with a pop of color, am I right? Traditionally I would style a maxi skirt with a graphic tee or a button down, but I love it paired with a sweater and statement necklace for those colder days.

Sandy a la Mode | Toddler Meals with Replay

To go along with my Baby Food with Blendtec post last week, I also wanted to share with you how we feed our toddler! I used to post weekly updates on Austin when he was a baby, and I am sad that I don’t post about him enough on here as I really want to use this as a journal to document our lives and as a space to inspire you and your families as well. :) And again, I’m just trying to keep up with my goal of posting at least 1 Mommy/non-fashion related post a week.

Austin is almost 3 and a half years old and is saying words, singing songs, and growing up to be a big boy all too fast in front of my eyes. In the weekdays, he goes to daycare for the whole time we are at work, so once work and daycare are over, we spend about 3-4 hours with him each night before bedtime, of which dinner consists of half of that time, no joke. Austin is a SLOW eater, and that’s not a bad thing, but he gets distracted, and then by the end of the meal, most of his food is cold, but we make him eat it anyways. ;)  How else will he grow muscles, right??

For meals, we always feed Austin with this Re-Play Lorax-Inspired set which includes plates, cups and utensils in 3 fun colors and they are all stackable too. Austin is very ADAMANT about having different foods in each of the 3 plate compartments. Talk about being a threenager, if there is one compartment missing food, tantrum city here we go. We feed him milk, water, and juice occasionally and he is at the point where he doesn’t really need a lid and doesn’t generally have spills (although they do provide no-spill lids as an add on if preferred). And he is pretty comfortable using the fork and spoon all on his own. I love that the spoon is deep for gathering lots of food and everything has rounded edges so it’s safe. His knife skills still need a bit of work, but he is working on it. ;)

For most of his meals, we will feed him some carbs, like rice, noodles, mac n cheese or bread. We always like to have one meat option, like shredded chicken, pork cutlets, etc. And vegetables are also a must – he LOVES broccoli and green beans so that just makes us feel like we did something right, HA!  We make a deal with him that if he finished his food, we will give him dessert.  Dessert usually consists of fruit, crackers or cheese.

If you can’t tell already, I am pretty obsessed with graphic tees, the color mint, polka dots, and my Mu’s Bags. So there you have it, all of those in one outfit! :) But seriously, this Little Black Shirt is super soft, super cute, and just a fun play off of your staple “Little Black Dress”, you know, the one that everyone should own. And this polka dot skirt, is made of sequins you guys. It’s just so super glam and again, I have a STRONG love for polka dots and the color mint, so it’s a win-win skirt in my book. Of course it’s from T+J Designs again, the store I keep raving about lately. Soon enough, I will own half the store, no kidding.

I’m back with this month’s post of the Mama Daughter Style Series collaboration with my good Mama friends with adorable baby girls! This month’s post is all about Spring Shoe Trends for Women with Rack Room Shoes! According to Rack Room Shoes Spring trend shoe style report, jeweled sandals, wedges, bright colored shoes, ankle shoes, and boat shoes are just some of the different types of shoes that are in this season. So for my outfit, I decided to show how I style up jeweled sandals, while my friends Chasing Davies, Lipgloss and Crayons, Sparkling Footsteps and Coconut Robot show off some of the other trends.
