Become An Independent Stylist For Stella & Dot

**I was compensated for this post and this post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.** 




If you haven't heard of Stella & Dot just yet, now is the time to take a peek! If you're into fashion and you love to shop, this might be the opportunity you've been looking for. 

Much like any other small business, you need to invest in order to start your business. That's one of the cool parts here. In the month of June, your investment is just $199.  But, you could earn your investment back, just by selling $1000 in your first 30 days. (That shouldn't be too hard since it's summer and there are probably weddings, parties, vacations, school is coming up, and college is right around the corner!) 

Not only do you get your investment back but you will score a FREE best-selling Aven necklace AND $350 in accessories. (This is along with receiving $199 cash back for your initial payment.) As long as you sell $1000. This is a great time of year to start a business and you could even stock up on your own bags and wallets and rings and necklaces!! (Personally, I'd grab up one of the silver Gwen Wrap Rings first!) 

One of the cool things about being a personal stylist for Stella & Dot is that you can host trunk shows and you can share online through your own website and social networks. You will also receive 50% commission during your first 30 days! (This will definitely make it easier to hit your $1000 goal!) 


Stella and Dot's New Arrivals for Summer are Here!

Stella & Dot also offer a very close-knit community, training, and support. There is also an "Event" section on their website where you can search by city/state/zip to find an event near you. If you are hosting an event, you can add yours to the list. (I think this is a sweet bonus that would come in handy for personal stylists in many ways!)

Oh, before I forget, if you have any Dot Dollars, you can start redeeming them! Make sure to take advantage of the Stella & Dot Dollars often! You can apply $25 Dot Dollars towards every $50 you spend from now through July 10, 2017.

Enjoy Summer Cooking + Cleanup with Grove Collaborative

** This post may contain affiliate links. **

Summer is my favorite time of year for cooking — or eating, at the very least. Colorful eggplant, juicy tomatoes, and bright berries from the garden are as delicious as they are nourishing. Everything tastes better al fresco. And simple grilled or no-cook meals leave more time for sipping lemonade on the patio.  

One thing that I don’t enjoy during the summer: shopping for household essentials. Who wants to run to the store when you could be unwinding outside? And you can't exactly pick up dish soap at the farmer's market. So in the spirit of making everything more enjoyable this summer, let me introduce you to Grove Collaborative.

Grove is a subscription service that delivers natural cleaning, home, beauty, and baby products right to your doorstep, on your schedule. It’s like having a brilliant personal assistant who keeps your home stocked up on the essentials while you relax and soak up the sun.

When you sign up for Grove right now, you'll get this Summer Chef’s set FREE with your first order of $20. Here’s whats included:

  • Free Mrs. Meyer’s Hand Soap
  • Free Mrs. Meyer’s Dish Soap
  • Free Mrs. Meyer’s Multi-Surface Spray
  • Free Grove Collaborative Bubble Up
  • Free Shipping & 60 Day VIP Trial

(If you're already a subscriber, you'll get a free set of Grove Walnut Scrubber Sponges.)

The set is everything you need to make summer cleanup easy and enjoyable. Since you can choose your scents for the free Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap, hand soap, and multi-surface spray, you can create a matching set (like I did) or mix-and-match your favorites. I've been using the basil scent, and I love how it smells like a summer herb garden.

I also adore this Grove Collaborative Bubble Up, which is a spring-loaded soap dish and scrub brush. It looks cute on my counter, and it’s such a convenient way to tackle kitchen messes.

After all, that’s what Grove Collaborative is all about: making creating a healthy, beautiful home effortless and affordable. I’ve been using Grove for just over a year now, and I still look forward to my monthly shipment.

Treat yourself to this FREE Summer Chef’s set and give Grove Collaborative a try — I promise you’ll never go back! As a bonus, you’ll be signed up for the free 60 day VIP trial when you place your order. That means free shipping, free gifts, price matching, and personal service.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Sign up for Grove Collaborative here. You will receive the Summer Chef’s Set for free when you sign up!
  2. To receive this offer, your order needs to be a minimum of $20. Choose the combination of products and scents you love and receive your first box within a few days.
  3. You made it! Click Finish & Pay and place your order.

Allumière Antiaging Cream is a lightweight, fast-absorbing cream providing the hydrating benefits of a moisturizer with the power of an anti-aging concentrate.  Anogeissus Leiocarpa Bark Extract and Vitamin C work synergistically to increase the incorporation of Vitamin C in the skin, significantly boosting antioxidant capability and collagen synthesis.   Powerful, bioavailable peptides rebuild and restore skin from the inside out to lift, fill, and smooth out wrinkles.  Allumière Antiaging Cream features comfrey stem cells and a probiotic to speed skin renewal and turnover while tomato-derived carotenoids fight UV damage and lighten skin.  Sandalwood and Barley Extract reduce water loss and stimulates lipids found naturally in skin.  Allumière Antiaging Cream addresses signs of aging caused by UV damage, glycation, gravity, and dryness.  

Niuvella Antiaging Serum is a lightweight, fast absorbing anti-aging cream features auto-adapting technology to provide the ultimate comfort and protection in all climates.  A marine-based neuro-soother addresses one of the root causes of aging and wrinkles -- inflammation.  It fights inflammation by soothing irritated skin and reducing skin sensitivity.  Probiotics restore skin’s self-renewal to increase skin thickness, reduce moisture loss, and boost skin immunity.  Niuvella Antiaging Serum counteracts photoaging with soybean seed extract and olive fruit revealing an increase in skin smoothness, firmness, hydration, and elasticity while decreasing wrinkle depth. Anogeissus Leiocarpa Bark Extract increases the incorporation of Vitamin C in the skin, significantly boosting antioxidant capability and collagen synthesis. Niuvella Antiaging Serum is formulated with snow algae powder to protect skin on a cellular level by fighting oxidative stress, detoxifying, and repairing.  Snow algae, found in semi-permanent to permanent snow or ice in the alpine or polar regions of the world, activates longevity factors to extend the youthfulness of skin.

I'm In Love With Luvo

** I receive products for free in return for reviews as part of the Mom's Meet Blogger Program. All opinions are my own. **

I am one of those moms who isn't really into buying frozen prepared foods or snacks very often. I don't mind a few boxes of frozen snacks for one of our famous sleepover parties. Our freezers are filled with meat, veggies, bags of strawberries, fresh pasta, Girl Scout cookies, and some of our favorite bread we travel several miles to buy. I enjoy cooking and baking although, I didn't always! Back when my husband and I had our first baby and we both worked all of the time, the fanciest I got was a box of Hamburger Helper or Tuna Helper with some added ingredients! But, I don't even "cook" those anymore either!

Much like every other parent, I rarely have time to eat. If I do, it's whatever is left in the pan or whatever I could sneak before serving everybody else. On the busiest of evenings, I'm lucky to get a handful of pistachios and string cheese. Along with my diet of coffee, well, pots of coffee, I'm lucky to get a meal, much less 3 meals a day. That's where Luvo comes in!

Luvo has a few different, very healthy, nutritious, and yummy options available. I was lucky enough to try the Steam In Pouch Meals.


These are the varieties I tried but there are much more! Each one of these boxes includes a full serving of vegetables, grains, and quality proteins. They are flash frozen in their own top secret steam in pouch packaging and they are super simple to throw in the oven and knock a few more things off of your to-do list while you wait!



Once the timer goes off, you just remove, let the steam pouch sit for a couple of minutes, open, and gently slide on your plate and you have a fabulous entree that looks like you made from scratch! 
They actually slide out quite easily and surprisingly, the sides won't mix up together and you won't have a big, mushy mess of everything, This is not what I expected, to be honest! 


You can see the broccoli and cauliflower really look freshly steamed! Not to mention, everything tastes like real food. You would never know they came from the freezer. I think that was the most amazing part to me. Although, I am really digging these steam pouches! The rice, beans, all of the sides and sauces taste homemade and I have yet to have a pouch not cook evenly. 



It's hard to pick a favorite but if I had too, it would be the Red Wine Braised Beef and Polenta with Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Butternut Squash, and Cranberries. I always assume that any beef that comes in a box or from a freezer or a can of any kind, will taste like that beef stew from a can but, this is so flavorful and just melts in your mouth! Not to mention, all of the flavors blend together so well!

Another bonus with Luvo meals is that they stack nicely in your freezer. So, you can stock up and be sure to have at least one for each of your most hectic nights! 

I haven't tried any other Luvo products just yet, even though I would love too! I haven't had any luck finding them in a store near me but I have a feeling they will be there very soon. 

Luvo also offers Bowls which come in a paperboard bowl and also have a good variety so everyone is certain to find at least 3 or 5 that would please their palate! 
They also offer Planted Bowls that are also Non GMO, vegan, and gluten-free. 

One of the other reasons I am actually loving Luvo is that they are very active on social media! You can find them in all of the usual places and you can find out about Twitter parties, giveaways, new products, and free shipping and other deals! (Yes, you can actually buy Luvo meals online if you can't find them in a store near you! Or if you just feel like having them sent directly to your house!)

Google Chromecast Audio At Best Buy

** The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. **





We're fans of Google Chromecast so when I was asked to review Google Chromecast Audio for Best Buy, I knew right away that this would be a big hit at our house! (Especially with the kids!) We have so many devices connected all at once and so many different styles of music being played at different times, anything that would help stream faster, easier, sound crisp and clean would be a bonus! 

We received 2 Google Chromecast Audio Products to play with for our review. This was great since there are 4 kids and 4 tablets not to mention how much we all love music! I was only hoping this would be a quick install without a gazillion apps to install and wires and connectors to buy, just to make these work. Sure enough, there everything we need was right inside this handy little box! 





My 13-year-old tore one of these open and immediately got to work. Within minutes, he was already here:



It really is pretty simple. You plug your Chromecast Audio into a speaker and into a wall socket, switch your speaker to AUX/LINE-IN and turn the volume up. Then you simply visit chromecast.com/setup from your phone, tablet, or laptop. 




Listen To Your Favorite Tunes On Your Speaker

By using your phone, it's easy to play, pause, or change the volume from anywhere in the house. And while streaming, you can still text or call without interrupting what's playing or draining your battery. 
(One of my most favorite features!) 

Crystal Clear Sound Powered By The Cloud

Use Chromecast audio to stream over Wi-Fi which has many advantages over BlueTooth including higher sound quality. 

Enjoy Hundreds Of Your Favorite Audio Apps

Stream millions of songs, radio stations, and podcasts through apps like Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music, and Google Play Music. Find more at Chromecast.com/apps. 

Play Music Everywhere With Multi-Room

Now you can easily fill every room in your home with synchronous music. Simply group Chromecast audio devices together so you can listen to the same song on multiple speakers.
