I am keeping Sean home with me. I am excited to have such a cool kid to keep me company, and I am already filling our days with fun and educational activities. I also decided to take on a part-time job. It's not unusual for teachers to get summer jobs, but I knew it would be impossible to both work and keep Sean home. I didn't have much hope of making any extra money.
Then opportunity fell into my lap. It's not the first time that I have found myself with a solution I never knew I was looking for- it happened with teaching and blogging too. I am no stranger to following my gut and listening to myself. I am now selling Premier Designs Jewelry. PD is a direct sales company- something that I am not particularly fond of to be perfectly honest- and their focus on home shows immediately turned me off.
But I couldn't stop thinking about it. I tried, I swear. I thought the jewelry was beautiful. I thought the company's philosophy was genuine. I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to continue my own personal mission- to make women feel beautiful and have confidence in themselves. So now I find myself with a nice little part-time job. Something to keep me busy during my downtime over the next few months.

Saturday I had my training show with the company. It was a chance for me to watch my sponsor in action and practice my people skills (oh, how they are lacking!). I had so much fun at the show- my time as a teacher has prepared me for teaching women about fashion. Anyway, I promise I am not going to spend the entire summer begging you to buy my jewelry. If I am wearing a piece, I will link to it. If you are interested, you can contact me. No pressure, I promise!
I knew I wanted to look my best for this first show, so I turned to Gwynnie Bee (of course!) and Kiyonna. My first Kiyonna piece was the Harlow Faux Wrap dress in red, so when I saw this beautiful jade number, I knew it was the one!
