It’s that time of year again. The HOLIDAY time. How many of us are yet to shop for gifts? I personally stayed away on Black Friday, as a former retail worker. Instead, I chose to stay home with my hubby and pups and enjoy the quiet. Sure I did window shop online a bit, but that’s about it. I certainly enjoyed the quiet time at home, getting my house decorated for Christmas. Having so many friends in the small business world, I wanted to share my favorites with you. I hope you’ll check them out, for gifts or for yourself! Keep in mind, you can shop these anytime, not just for the holidays, too!
If you haven’t seen or heard of LLR yet, you might be living under a rock? I stumbled onto a pair at a pop up. I’ve been hooked ever since. What’s awesome is that they produce limited amounts of each print, so there is always something for everyone. The leggings are amazing, but they have so many other great things too! I have 3 fashion consultants I buy from, and they are all amazing ladies!
These ladies are an amazing mother/daughter duo who do lots of live shows on their Facebook page. They are so much fun to watch, and they answer questions as they go, as well as go back to reshow items. Did I mention they live in a TAX-FREE STATE? They invoice and ship promptly. These ladies are simply amazing, and do such a great job of showing the LLR goodies! Just head to their Facebook page, and check out all the amazing items! Inventory is constantly updated, and they have sales going all the time.
This young lady is another one of my favorite LLR consultants! I’ve had great luck with ordering from her, and she also ships promptly. She does lots of album sales on her page. She’s also prompt in responding to questions. I snagged my first Halloween AND Holiday leggings from her. If you know anything about LLR, you know the holiday stuff is a hot commodity. What’s great is the consultants are all so great about being fair with them!
Kathleen is another one of the great ladies running their small businesses from home. She’s got an adorable little man with her, and she does live and album sales. Her live parties are very fast paced and a lot of fun. There is always new inventory coming in and she loves to share it with all of the LulaLOVERS out there!
This is a company that I hadn’t ever really heard of until my friend Jill invited me to her launch. After seeing the amazing results posted, I certainly had to learn more. This is one of the most amazing skin care lines I’ve ever seen. They have so many great products to offer, and they have astonishing results. If you haven’t heard of them, definitely check out her site HERE and prepare to see mind blowing photographs. The products truly do speak for themselves!
This product line has been floating around in my newsfeed, and I have to say I was curious.The mascara looked SO intriguing, I had to give it a shot. It is a 2 part system that lengthens and thickens lashes, without weighing them down. The clumping is next to none after you properly learn to apply it, too. There are so many gorgeous cosmetics in their line, I can’t wait to try more
This one was totally new to me, but when my high school friend Barbie invited me to the group, I had so see what the fuss was about! This stuff is incredible. It doesn’t smudge, doesn’t bleed, and doesn’t come off for 18 hours! (If you want it to last that long.) If you are even the slightest bit skeptical, check out her page. She does the test video of herself, and it’s pretty crazy to watch. I placed my order instantly, and can’t wait to get it! The colors are gorgeous, and there is something for everyone to shop for.
This company is in a league of its own. Their mission is to get safer products into our hands. A number of chemicals in just about everything we see and use is simply disturbing! I tried the charcoal bar on a whim. My skin is super sensitive, so I was a little afraid, but it is outstanding. It is keeping my skin clearer, and it’s super safe. They have so many different products and you can read the Never List and see they truly don’t put bad things in their products. I can’t wait to try more of their goodies!
This is a message straight from Amy herself:
“Wake up, take a shower, put on makeup. The morning routine is something we all know very well. But what many of us don’t know is that questionable and potentially harmful ingredients are in many of the products we put on our skin every day. Change is happening now. It’s all about protecting yourself and those you love. Did you know the United States has not passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products since 1938. In fact, the US has only banned 11 ingredients in cosmetics. This compared to the 1300 in Europe.
WE DESERVE BETTER, AND WE’RE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
At Beautycounter, we’ve banned more than 1,500 ingredients setting a new health and safety standard all while ensuring our products perform, and that they’re as indulgent as any luxe shampoo, lipstick or oil in the market. We are educating consumers about the problems in the industry and the lack of regulation across it, and we are providing a solution. Women of all ages want to present their best, most beautiful selves to the world, but over time they have been asked to make compromises. We believe that no woman should compromise her health and safety for beauty. visit www.beautycounter.com/amyadams to learn more.”
