5 Ways to Start Your Holiday Shopping NOW

So, news flash!  It’s late October, and I know it may seem early, but Christmas will be here before you even blink!  So today I’m helping you get started shopping early.  Hopefully you can knock out a lot of people on your list and be done before Thanksgiving!  Talk about having a stress free holiday season, this is the way to do it!

Since I’ve started Rodan and Fields, I have a whole new respect for small businesses, direct sales, and especially women entrepreneurs.  I’m sharing four other women who are working hard to support their families and are passing on some great products and specials to you just in time for the holidays.

I recently met my new friend Becky and wanted to share her LuLaRoe business with you.  I’ve also become a huge fan of LuLaRoe, and all of their super comfy, super cute, clothes.  If you’re unfamiliar with LuLaRoe, it’s a fashion company that sells through fashion consultants.  Becky carries women’s skirts, tops, dresses and leggings in sizes 0-26 and everything is unique. LuLaRoe only makes 2500 items in each print which makes each print rare. They’re best known for their buttery soft leggings but all the styles are comfortable and flattering on women of all body types.

I can personally attest that the leggings are so soft, they feel like a second skin basically.  So comfy!  Becky’s inventory is always changing so be sure to check her Facebook page for her current inventory.  If you’re interested, head to her Facebook page on Thursday’s for pop-up shops and to see all the latest and greatest, including Halloween leggings!  She’s also offering a “Cyber Monday” sale where you can get some great gifts for yourself, your kids, and even the men in your life at a discount!

To purchase: contact Becky at lulabecky@gmail.com or her Facebook page here.

One of my forever friends is always wearing something meaningful, her jewelry!!  If you haven’t heard of Origami Owl, it’s unique, personalized, and versatile jewelry.

Origami Owl jewelry isn’t just any old jewelry line. It is completely customizable and interchangeable. It tells the story of you, who you are and what your passions are in life. Create your own custom line of jewelry with items you curate based on your personality. Change the pieces out daily to create a custom NEW look, each and every day. You can even tell the story of a loved one. What a better way to celebrate a special someone in your life then with a beautiful piece of jewelry designed with only them in mind!

The Origami Owl Living Locket is a forever evolving piece of jewelry.  It can and will grow with you.  Choose the charms that represent your passions, memories, dreams and the things you love.  Capture them all in your Living Locket.

If you saw this post of mine, then you’ve already heard about Premiere Designs and how to host a jewelry party with them.  It was such a fun night!  Their new holiday line just came out and you can view the whole thing here.  I just love how versatile all of their jewelry is.  So many of the pieces can be worn in different ways, flipped around, or changed out to create more than one look.
