Curated Ivory Bleu Events!

Instead of just one or two items for sale every few days on GroopDealz for Ivory Bleu, I've been workin' like crazy, with my fab team, to launch themed events!

My first one went live this week!

...a little of what you'll find - check all of our 'BOSS' items out!
The 'Like a Boss' collection was created with the power Woman in mind. The strong, confident female inside all of us who can accomplish even the most difficult of tasks thrown her way, and still remain cool, calm, collected and beautiful all while conquering the world. Each of these edgy, standout, elegant items were picked for those Women who run the show, can stand on their own, and want their style to reflect it. Whether it’s at home, work or play, a Boss Lady demands respect through her actions AND wardrobe.
In the words of Beyonce; “Who runs the world?…Girls!” 

Each new event I launch will have an array of stylish, affordable, on-trend items that relate to each other somehow... and yes, even adorable CURVY (plus) SIZE options, like this comfy, color blocked maxi dresswhootwhoot!
yeah, you have to deal with pics of me wearing these clothes till I find a plus size model. ha!

This event ends on Saturday night, but a new one hits Groopdealz this coming Monday and will run for 7 days; so don't forget to check in often!


Bright Night is Back Yo!

Did you hear!?!?

Whoohoo! I'm so excited! For those of you local ladies that had a chance to experience or see what we did last year at our Bright Night Event, with only 2 weeks to pull everything together... you won't want to miss THIS years bash!

There are so many awesome events targeted to women nowadays, which makes me SO HAPPY! Small business owners, bloggers, teachers, etc...
That being said, Amy, Haylie, Ashley and I wanted to create a fun retreat where ANY woman of ANY background could come and enjoy a day away! Time to relax, laugh with friends, learn a little something, give back and you know... consume massive amounts of Diet Coke, peanut M&M's and chips and salsa. (AKA: all vital necessities for making it through each day... am I right?).

Our main reason for hosting the Bright Night Event has always been to continue to support women in crisis, so when you choose to come, not only are you partaking in awesomeness for yourself, but you are donating right alongside us, because a generous percentage of proceeds from ticket sales goes straight to the local Center for Women and Children in Crisis here in Utah!

We've already sold the bulk of our tickets, but I couldn't let a second more go by without blogging about this day for all of you to see and hopefully be a part of too!

Here are the deets:

An ALL day ENERGETIC retreat for ALL women
Yes, ALL! 
No need to be a blogger, fashionista or even rocket scientist (in case you were wondering) - just a girl who wants an amazing day all to herself, full of happy chatter and invigorating classes hosted by women you know and love!

Life is Life

Life is life.

Kids and their stuff take over sometimes (no matter how many attempts were made to put things back exactly where YOU think they should go).
... what the (???)

Decorating goes undone, because other things sit higher on your priority list

And NON fun things like laundry, organizing and touching up walls due to scuffs, nail holes and dings, have to get done.

But then there's all the good stuff that sits in between all the imperfect, undone, and chores.

The wild, free, beautiful hair on this darling girl

The funny and sassy attitude her sister brings

Happy memories created with siblings, cousins and nieces.

Longer days with light for Spring break, that allow for scooting around the neighborhood and sidewalk chalking with "friends"

Trying new things, and most of all... filling up your creative cup until it overflows.

I'm not sure when my attitude of "just letting things go" will end (?) I'm sure I'll eventually get my act together and finish a project all the way, blog regularly or (ehhhm)... go back to the gym. 

But for now, Life is Life, and I'm feeling happy, content, busy and creative. In a nutshell... more like ME than I've felt in a long time.
So... that's all that matters in this moment.

How are all of YOU!?
