My Stella & Dot Trunk Show: and a GIVEAWAY!!!

For years I have purchased countless amounts of costume jewelry that have betrayed my fashion sense and my style.  From earrings falling apart, to necklaces snapping where they shouldn't to rings turning my fingers green.  And all for what?  In the name of saving a few bucks?!  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I recently dumped a 6 lb. plastic bag of costume jewelry away.  After all, I won't be forever 21, so I can't keep buying my accessories there!  That's why I've started replacing all of that junk with Stella & Dot!

A few months ago I met Alison Fuller, Stella & Dot Star Director, Stylist and Founding Leader at a blog event.  We sat at the same table and chatted over the cutest accessory she was wearing, the Coral Cay Necklace (which I now own).


Over lunch, we bonded over fashion, blogging and social media.  I also mentioned to Alison that I knew what Stella & Dot (S&D) was, but that many of my friends (almost all, really) had no idea what Stella & Dot was and how incredibly beautiful their jewelry was.  I mentioned that I'd never seen an S&D piece in person, but that I knew of S&D via blogging because all of my blogging friends in the South and Midwest always wore the most amazing S&D accessories.  Alison and I stayed in touch after that lunch, at which time I decided to host a Stella & Dot Trunk Show.  How awesome would a gathering with girlfriends, champagne and jewelry be?! So I scoured the web for Stella & Dot party printables (created by Nikki of Flairy Tales) and invited some of my favorite people over for Baubles & Bling!












After my trunk show, I had earned so much in free accessories that I ended up owning numerous pieces.  This then turned into me stalking scouring Alison's Stella & Dot e-boutique and looking for the next items I would be buying.  While I teetered between becoming a stylist or just becoming an "avid Stella & Dot collector," my friend Becky became a stylist after falling in love with Stella & Dot at my trunk show!  On my birthday, after weeks of simmering on whether I could take on another task, on top of my mommy duties, blogger duties and the duties of my full-time day-job, I decided that becoming a Stella & Dot stylist was something I could do.  I realized that I had the power to either hit the ground running and make it a top priority and when it wasn't entirely conducive to my schedule as a mom, blogger and full-time employee, I could control the speed of this endeavor without compromising my other roles.  I realized, that I had the power to control how much success I find in my Stella & Dot business and that is why I decided to join the Stella & Dot family.  I realized that I control my success and I control the speed at which I will travel.

Stella & Dot Giveaway


To celebrate this new endeavor as a Stella & Dot stylist, I've decided to host a giveaway for an engravable necklace ($69 retail value) from Stella & Dot's new Engravables line!  Check out my Instagram feed.  I've been layering my engravables with various necklaces!  If you don't know Stella & Dot, yet, you'll want to enter so you can win a beautiful, personalized necklace.  If you can't wait until the end of the giveaway (Thursday, September 11th @ 12am) and would like to check out what the newest looks are, stop by my site, but I should warn you:  your spouse will hate me afterwards!  Good luck, friends!
