LuLaRoe Phishing

LuLaRoe sent out an email to all consultants tonight (July 20th, 2017) to notify them that someone had sent a fraudulent message claiming to be from noreply@LuLaroeBless.com. This message went on to ask the consumer to enter information regarding their credit card and drivers license and respond to verify that transaction.

LuLaRoe did not send this message which is known as  Phishing message to any LuLaRoe customer. DO NOT give out credit card, account number, Logon Information, Passwords or social security numbers via links you click on emails. If an organization sends you an email for information identify customer service numbers for that organization and call them to validate they need the information from you.

If you or someone you know received  or ever receives this type of email have them delete it immediately and do not respond. DO NOT open the email if you can but especially be diligent of attachments the email may contain.

Please understand that LuLaRoe and Bless will NOT ask a consumer to verify an order, will NOT ask for sensitive information such as credit or debit card numbers and LuLaRoe does not contact our customers directly as those communications would be initiated from a customer or be facilitated through your Fashion Retailer.

For additional information on Phishing click here or Here

Be Extra Careful when viewing emails that you don’t fall for a phishing scam. Bad guys are everywhere and we would hate to see you give out confidential information. If you do ever think you may have click on something you shouldn’t or have given out debit/credit card numbers make sure you call you financial institutions to get fraud protection and those cards cancelled so no bad charges go through.

2017 Amazon Prime Day

It’s Amazon’s Prime day… and unless you are living under a rock you already know this. If you are living under a rock Amazon Prime is a service you pay an annual fee for that allows you perks on Amazon. Personally I just love the 2 day shipping the rest is just a bonus but many love the Amazon Prime day they do annually each summer.

Back on track here… I am still amazed at all the people I see talking about this prime day event like it’s the next best thing to sliced bread. I’m sure there are amazing deals listed, but are they really all that amazing in the grand scheme of things? I’m not so convinced… I mean things go on sale all the time… and if you really watch you can probably find a better deal or at least a similar deal.

Like Black Friday shopping I find Amazon Prime day to be over hyped and an annoyance. However with that said… I’m like nearly every other person I know with Amazon Prime and I’ve looked at the flash deals about a 100 times today. You never know they may post something I can’t live without…

So why do so many people love Prime Day?

Adrenaline

Adrenaline… we all love the the adrenaline high you get from scoring that AHHHHmazing deal. Black Friday shopping, Amazon Prime day and LuLaRoe Capsule releases are all for the adrenaline… You can’t wait to score that hard to find item, that amazing deal or that I can’t live without thing. Don’t worry i’m not judging…

Well maybe I am, but not in a bad way. I’m judging myself too… because where will I be next year on Amazon Prime day? Probably checking out the flash sales… sigh!

Good Luck out there!

Beauty

Beauty Box

So as we were getting ready to leave for Noah’s Ark in Wisconsin Dells the mail lady pulled up. Now this is only significant because of what she delivered.  So what did she bring????

Our Quarterly Walmart Beauty Box!!!!

img_6178.jpg

These little boxes of goodies come every 3 months and they contain all kinds of trial items. It is a subscription and it costs you $5 every time they send them. Some people don’t think it’s worth it but for $5 my daughter and I enjoy these little goodie boxes!

So what was in this one? Well the very first thing that both Cheyenne and I noticed was how GOOD / Delicious this box smelled when we opened it. Plus it was just fun and sunny appearing! It instantly made us both in a good mood!

img_6180.jpg

Once we flipped over the lid it just continued to make us happy. It has a cute “Radiate your Beauty” slogan and says you are a force to be reckoned with. This is just a super cute little something extra to make the box even more fun!

So inside we received :

  1. Trial sized Pantene Pro-V Dream Care Shampoo
  2. Trial sized Pantene Pro-V Dream Care conditioner
  3. A small Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer from Palmer’s
  4. Palmer’s Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil
  5. ROC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck and Face cream trial size (I think i’m most excited to try this)
  6. Banana Boat Dry Balance 30 SPF Sunscreen – this is going to be the perfect size for my purse!!!!
  7. Pond’s Original Fresh MoistureClean towelettes – so make up remover wet wipes. I love these! Never tried the Ponds ones but we will like them i’m sure.
  8. The final item in our box was a certificate for a free SmileShop scan or $55 off an impression kit and $100 off aligners for the Smile direct club.

So I love the Walmart Beauty boxes and while you will never get all your beauty supplies with these they are fun to give you little samplings of products you might not always choose. In past boxes we’ve received lipstick, mascara, lotions, perfume samples, facial cleanser, etc.

If you want more information about how the subscription works you can find that here: https://beautybox.walmart.com/how-it-works/

Ten things to give up

10Things

Everyone is always saying that you shouldn’t give up. We’ve all heard the classic quotes…

  • Keep on trying…
  • If at first you don’t succeed; try, try again
  • Nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I’m Possible”
  • The secret to success is to never give up
  • If you give up, it means you never wanted it
  • It will take time, effort, blood, sweat and tears. But I will get there.
  • Never give up

I could go on and on… there are 1000’s of quotes like this… You get it…

I sell LuLaRoe and I see so many people doing these things that they just need to stop doing. So… help me out here… and just stop doing these things… Like this minute…. Just STOP these things! Don’t make excuses just quit them…. Quit them right now!

  1. Fear of failure – We tell ourselves all the time… you aren’t good enough, you don’t deserve it, what if I fail… Well ok… maybe… BUT what if you don’t??? Did you stop to ask yourself what then?
  2. Fear of Success – Do not be scared to succeed! Success is relative so what is your success is not for the next person. Find your happy place and live there!
  3. Overthinking! When you over think every single decision you make, you end up worrying WAY more than you need to. STOP it. Make a decision, trust yourself and your gut intuition and move on! Stop worrying so much.
  4. Excuses – There is no excuses to not doing what you need to do.  Do it right now… procrastinating doesn’t make it easier or more fun. Just go get it done!
  5. Negative People – Have fun being yourself and don’t let others bring you down. We are all a little bit broken, learn to live with the pieces. Love yourself and don’t let others bring you down.
  6. Negative thoughts – There is no room for negativity in your life or you will become all about negative things. No one wants to be around that side of the magnet.
  7. Saying YES when you want to say No. NO is a complete sentence. Say it when you need to. Do not be afraid of hurting someone’s feelings or making them upset. If you need to say “NO” then say it.
  8. Over-Complaining – When all you do is complain, then you don’t appreciate the small things. Stop complaining, find the silver lining. Look for the good. If you look for it, you will find it!
  9. Judging Others – It’s so hard not to judge and you do it without thinking. But when you make a negative judgement stop yourself. Ask – could there be a reason they are doing that, or acting like that. There probably is… people want to be good. Give them the benefit of the doubt. You haven’t walked in their shoes.
  10. Comparing yourself to others – You are not me… and I am not you. Our destinations might be the same, but our journey’s maybe very different. Do not compare yourself, instead decide on goals that will get you to where you want to go and work towards those.

I am as guilty as the next person for falling victim to these things. However, I think we are all better than that. Be proud, be empathetic, help others, and do it with grace and love. Ask for help when you need it, and don’t be afraid to be yourself!

First World Problems 

So as you all probably know I live in Central Wisconsin. Most springs and moving into summer you can find a wide variety of temperatures and storms roll through. This year has been no exception. 

We went from temps in the 50’s to the high 80’s. We’ve had light rain, no rain and everything in between. I watched a town very close to my hometown be devastated by a tornado this spring. To top all that off I’m realizing how accustomed we’ve become to first world things. You know like power, showers, hot water and on demand TV and internet. 

On Monday night a storm with high powered winds and crazy amounts of rained washed though the city I live in. We haven’t had power since then. My 11 year old has been forced to interact with us. We had to throw away all our fridge food. And realizing what it’s like to ‘camp’ from your house hasn’t been the most fun experience ever.


Despite the #firstworldproblem endurance plan we seem to be on not having power has brought us; we have made some fun memories along the way. We ‘rescued’ the LuLaRoe stuff from the basement that tends to flood. (Luckily it hasn’t yet). 


We roasted marshmallows outside on an lighter. 


We watched tv shows we had downloaded from iTunes on an iPad as a family and above all we talked. I know I’m shocked too! 

So while our property damage was minimal our memories will not be. While I don’t want to go through another 52 hours without power we will survive! Even without showers (and I really miss showers). 

So back to the grind people and remember there are many people out there who don’t even know what electricity is. Let alone take it for granted. I can’t even imagine what they would think of the internet and our tv habits.

So messy hair and all. I’ll just be thankful for the things I do have! I’m thankful that LuLaRoe helps me have the things we usually take for granted. What are you thankful for??? 

Capsule

Polka Dots and Prints

Polka dots and prints are some of the amazing things you will see soon as part of a very exclusive line that LuLaRoe is bringing to all of us. I was able to snag some of the Leggings in this amazing collection launch last night and hope to be able to purchase Carly, Randy and Classics as well during future releases!  I can’t wait to bring all of these items to you in the Stevens Point and Central Wisconsin area!

My family and I take a trip to Florida to visit some friends of ours and we enjoy some much needed time away at Disney World. We are starting to plan our 2017 trip and I am so excited to visit there again in November.

Last year while we visited downtown Disney in our LuLaRoe Americana leggings and Irma’s we passed out some freebies to some unsuspecting tourists. We had a great time and met some fun people while letting the kids roam and us ladies got to sneak in some fun shopping.

We enjoyed some great time in our Carly dresses while riding the new Snow white roller coaster at Magic Kingdom.

We enjoyed some amazing Mickey Cupcakes!

I was able to sneak in a couple super cute pictures of my daughter at SeaWorld while we were there and she was even wearing a LuLaRoe Cassie skirt with Polka Dots on it!

What is your favorite?

There are so many amazing and yet different styles of LuLaRoe you can choose from. I get asked all the time…. What is your favorite? So…. let me tell you what are my favorites and why…. I’ll also include some fellow consultants thoughts on a few of these styles so you can get their takes on them too!

My absolute…. hands down…. most amazing style (in my opinion) favorite is the MAXI skirt…. Not only are these just amazing skirts…. they can be worn a million ways, tied, knotted, as a dress, etc. There are lots of patterns and solids to choose from so no matter what you are destined to find one you really like.

IMG_3743_xGlnJ7m (2)

My Second favorite style is the CLASSIC TEE. It’s got a scoop neck and still has the tunic high/low bottom styling so it covers your ummm… backside! (Seriously a necessity in life!) It can be paired with everything including; leggings, Cassie, Maxi, Azure, etc. My almost 12 year old loves this style as well and wears her Classics with Leggings all the time!

The third style that is a must have for any LuLaRoe lover is the CARLY dress! It’s just freaking amazing! This is a swing style dress that allows you to cover your butt cheeks while bending over. I have found that I LOVE this dress for so many reasons! It’s comfy, it’s stylish, I can wear it to work, I can wear it to the park or when sitting all day at a taekwondo competition.

In the winter I love to pair it with some cute leggings and knee high boots and in the summer I usually make my leggings into capris and wear sandals. I just LOVE my Carly! Recently LLR released the Scarlett which is really just the Carly for kids… if you have a little girl in your life you really should try one!

IMG_3473

These are by far my most favorite styles… my friend Kelley Erickson says that the Carly is her favorite but a close second in her book is the PERFECT Tee. The Perfect is a cute and has fun slits on the sides. These are fun to knot and it’s super cute with leggings or skirts.

Jenni Jacewitz loves the Classic, Carly and Leggings… she can be seen wearing those LLR buttery soft leggings while playing with her daughter, taking a trip to the beach or putzing around the house! She is a leggings collector and loves to make Mommy and Me sets to match her Threenager. (Yeah if you have a toddler you know that’s a thing).

There are lots of other styles that are AMAZING, but these are our favorites! What is your favorite? and why?
