Introducing Grace Adele

I have so much to share with you from Light it Up Scentsy Family Convention in Las Vegas this past week, but first, an announcement that cannot wait. 

On Thursday, we all waited for a new brand to be announced.  Last year at Convention in Fort Worth, Orville Thompson (CEO of Scentsy) announced that Scentsy would be adding a new brand that would be the "most successful launch in direct selling history".  In May, Velata, the fun fondue company was launched, and it has already done more business in 3 months than Scentsy Wickless did in its first 3 years!

So we were excited. We knew Scentsy Home Office had cooked up something good.  Grace, the Thompson's youngest daughter took the stage and talked about how her birthday is generally celebrated around convention.  She is 9 and has basically grown up with our 8 year old company.  Then, she introduced our new brand by saying "...but this time they have gone to far. They are using my name for the new company". At that time "Grace" appeared all over the screens and SuperStar Directors and previous Shining Stars Awardees started a full out fashion show.

There was so much screaming and excitement it feels like a daze.  I wasn't sure if I could get excited about selling handbags and accessories until Orville and Heidi came out, and in their great way, explained how it will work.

In their super generous way - they gave us all a handbag, clutch, necklace, keychain, mirror accessory, and more!

This is me reallly excited!

This is something that is one of a kind.  One bag can be worn almost 7 different ways with our accessorizing clutches and accessories. I am so excited!

It is hard to explain how great the new line in on the computer. I simply can't type fast enough.  If you would like to see the line up close and personal please let me know. I would love for you to host a party and see it all as soon as August 1st hits!

 I am so excited to start spreading the new brand.  I flew home in my new Grace Adele shirt because I want everyone to start recognizing it. 

Today I added one of the accessories, a cute mirror, to an old Nine West bag I had just to give it new life.

You can shop all my brands in one spot.

So one of the other reasons I'm so super excited is because so many people say "oh if only I had joined when you joined, or when Scentsy first started". In fact, I have said that myself.  As I sat there and listened to this announcement, I started crying because we were just given a new opportunity.  A true ground floor opportunity.  Everything I've ever wanted. To be a member of the Founder's Circle, to reach the top level and help as many women as I can gain financial freedom, I can do and there is nothing to stop me.

For me this is what it is all about. Doing what I love, how I love it, on my terms, without having to answer to anyone, and to help others do the same. I want to be able to take my son on cool vacations, I want us to have our own home, I want to be able to take him to Baltimore to see his family whenever he wants to. This is why I am so excited. 

Scentsy Family Brand is doing something that has never been done before.  We now have 3 brands, one downline, and one commission.   You don't have to sell each brand, you can choose which brands meet your passion, and build a team with any of the brands even if you don't sell them! How cool is that!

Do you love fashion and also have thought about becoming an entrepreneur. This is a fabulous opportunity for you. Why don't you consider joining my team on August 1st?

I'll also be creating a Youtube video tomorrow because truly - words can't convey how excited I really am!

I'm super excited to start styling my wardrobe with my new accessories. Every time I get dressed - I'll be marketing my business!

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…

Colin Kaepernick is bae

I really don't need to say anymore.  
I've been saying people with a platform need to take a stand. I didn't want any Black athletes to travel to Rio for the olympics to represent the USA. I realize that is a big thing to ask. That is the dichotomy of being Black in America.  Black athletes representing a country and winning gold medals in the name of a country who doesn't fully see us. 
So Kaepernick gets all my love for taking a stand by taking his seat.  Personal protests have always been the catalyst for greater awareness and action. 
Let me tell you a quick story. This summer at our Scentsy convention, Orville gave a moving and authentic speech that touched on the current times. I could see how he genuinely felt about what he was saying. There was a moment where this quote by a Scentsy consultant's husband was placed on the screen. I realized when he said "he's Black", everyone remained seated, but when he said "and he's a cop" eve…
