I thought I would take a little time to introduce myself and to explain what my hopes are for this blog!
My name is Marie! Here are some interesting facts about me:
- I’ve lived in Ohio my whole life
- I grew up on a farm!
- I love love love Harry Potter!!!
- I also like reading Stephen King
- I love cooking and cooking shows!
- I am an artist, and my specialties are painting and drawing
- I am a former art teacher
- I am a bottomless pit of useless information 😂
- I am a wife and a momma!!!
My hope is to share more of myself with you through this blog, and to talk about one of my favorite things (that I didn’t mention above): FASHION!
I fell in love with LuLaRoe in 2015, when a friend of mine started her own LuLaRoe business! I hosted a Pop-Up, got a bunch of stuff, and have been in love ever since!
Up until as recently as last year, I was part of about 39,205,610 LuLaRoe groups on Facebook, and I spent a LOT of money on new clothes. Like, a LOT. 😅
When my son was born, though, I realized once I went back to work how much I missed him during the day, and how difficult it was to come home from school exhausted, take care of the house, AND play with him before bed!
So I started thinking about how I could still work AND be home with him… ENTER LuLaRoe!!!
It was an easy choice, since I already loved the clothes, and I had an awesome person to help me get started!
The only problem was, I was already exhausted with teaching and everything else, and I was too afraid to take the plunge and quit my job.
Here’s where it gets real, guys… prepare yourselves.
After schools closed in March due to COVID-19, a got a call in early April saying that I was going to be laid off from my teaching job due to budget cuts. Whoa. I was devastated.
After crying for a few days, I decided I needed a plan. And I remembered talking with my friend (who was a LuLaRoe Retailer) about what joining and working her business was like.
I decided that if there was ever a time to do this, now was it.
And here I am! I love it so much, too!!! Being creative, playing dress up, talking with friends, and shopping for a living??? AND getting to be home with my baby?? Yes please!!!
Aaaaanywho… now that I’ve told you my story, I hope that this blog will be a place you can go to read my reviews and thoughts on different styles, how to mix patterns, styling items lots of different ways, and more!!!
I want it to be a fashion resource that comes to you from a friend!
Not some high fashion, designer, unattainable fashion magazine. Cuz who needs another one of those??? Not me!
So stick with me as we navigate this together, and hopefully have some fun playing dress up and talking about clothes along the way! 😁
