Cut, Cut, Cut

July 4th Weekend!!!

The long weekend is almost upon us and June will be coming to a close. What are your plans for the holiday? Watching fireworks? BBQing? Hanging out with family and friends? I am so looking forward to attending and being part of my first block party in our neighborhood. I have heard about them, I know it happens, and I'm really looking forward to lounging all day long. I invited everyone I know to come out, enjoy the expected 95 degree heat and bring something to share. I can't feed the whole neighborhood so it was a pot luck invitation. On top of that, I love offering my friends, family and customers great deals. Stella & Dot has reduced some of their already reduced items another 20% for the holiday weekend! Savings are great. For instance, the Festival 'til Dawn Necklace is on sale for $79 The Jolie Ring is now $31 , not $39. Hmm, what am I going to wear on July 4th....

Another Look at FALL 2011 & Hoopla!

Take a look at the cover of Stella & Dot 's new Mini Look Book. What do you think? Would you wear that necklace? I just purchased my ticket to Hoopla, Stella & Dot 's Annual National Sales Conference that will be taking place at the San Francisco Hilton near Union Square for three days, July 7-9, 2011. Due to some other responsibilities my household had to address, I wasn't absolutely positive I was going to go. But now I DEFINITELY am!! (Thanks to the Fiance for giving me the green light.) I had such a great time at the last training session in Danville, CA at Faz Restaurant . I met great ladies and left energized and I ended up having a pretty decent month, with only being my 2nd month in the business. I have had more success as a Stylist than... oh nevermind. I'm Going to HOOPLA! I am most looking forward to the Fashion Show where they unveil the Fall 2011 line. The last fashion show I went to, I was in it. That was ages ago! We'll also have a ch

My Lolo

That's what I call my grandfather. Apparently he's been sick for a month. He was sick when I saw him this past Father's Day and although my father ordered him his favorite (Sweet and Sour Pork), he didn't have an appetite to eat much. And he didn't want any rice. That's surprising. Lolo loves 'kanin' (rice, in Tagalog). I received an email this morning from my sister that he had a 108 fever last night and went to the ER but there were so many people there he wasn't seen. So he's back there now and is being monitored. When I can leave work, I'll head over to the hospital or to their house. I hope he feels better. Here we are getting back from Hawaii in 2006 Lolo, Shanti, Me, Nolan, Lola, Matt & Mike Lolo used to always just pat my shoulder and say "OK" in response to my hug and telling him I love him. He's been saying it back for the past couple of years now. Tell your loved ones you love them every chance you get

3-in-3 Jewelry Trunk Shows!

Three trunk shows in three days + a full time job. This is why my blog is named what it is. My earlier slow down post goes into effect tonight… maybe. I have some major cleaning to do since I have been focusing on my Stella & Dot business. The fiancĂ© gave me a weird look when he inquired about the last time I vacuumed. *Snap on the wrist taken.* But I don’t want to talk about all the chores I have to do, I am having a good time doing these trunk shows! Thursday night, I am still at Shirasoni in Brentwood, CA on Ladies Night. Go to their web site and print out the coupon for 50% off selected cocktails and appetizers. My display is in the lobby with necklaces, bracelets, earrings, Look Books, a newsletter sign-up sheet and the NEW Renegade collection. While you’re there, Steve will make you a great cocktail and my favorite rolls are the Giant Maki and the Bad Joe Roll without the spicy sauce. Use Danny’s ponzu sauce instead of soy sauce. It’s delicious! Also on this day, my Ma

Looking for a Few Good Fans

I have been a member of the Los Lonely Boys Street Team called La Onda for basically six years now and have made several wonderful friends, traveled many miles together and shared many memories (LLB-related and non). As I am living in the San Francisco Bay Area, we are looking for new members to join the NorCal chapter called Onda by the Bay (OBTB). We promote the band, the concerts and the music out of the goodness of our hearts for the love of Henry, JoJo and Ringo Garza and their music. We do so by making our own swag, handing it out to other fans at concerts, to our friends and family, re-post news and photos on Facebook , Twitter and on bulletin boards. We do not do this to get closer to the Boys or to get ‘special’ benefits such as free tickets or meet-and-greets, but the Boys do appreciate everything we have done as a group and it is definitely recognized. You could call us die-hard fans. If you are too and are located in the Bay Area, we’d love to meet you! If you are not

Baby, I 'LIKE' It!

I have a Facebook page at . If you haven’t already done so, go LIKE me to find out about specials, upcoming promos and public trunk shows and news on the growing Stella & Dot business and exclusive releases on this gorgeous jewelry. I have had such wonderful support from friends and family and every time I ask someone to ‘Like’ it I think of Enrique Iglesias “Baby, I like it’ song with the cast of Jersey Shore. So I’m asking YOU to go Like it now! Maybe we can do a LIKE exchange. Keep your eyes peeled for this image and stop by and say HI! I have three public trunk shows this week and I hope you can stop by if you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area. Tomorrow, Thursday, June 16, 2011 - 6-9 PM at Shirasoni Japanese Grill & Sushi Restaurant at 6367 Lone Tree Way, Ste B, in Brentwood, California. It’s Ladies Night! Go to their website and print out the coupon for 50% Off selected cocktails and appetizers. Saturday, June 18, 2011 - 9A

I'm Going to Love My Summer. How About You?

It’s another month and I’ll be a Stella & Dot Stylist for officially one month come this Friday, June 3rd. Boy, how time flies. I think I’m doing well and I am definitely having a great time with it. I’m not even bummed that I’m not working on a wedding beside my own and I love getting the compliments on the jewelry. It’s really incredibly easy to talk to people about. I have a lot to say about S&D and so much to mention with some June promos to LOVE YOUR SUMMER. The Memorial Day sale has been extended until the selected pieces are gone. The sale was advertising 20% off but I’m noticing that some items are more than 50% off. That’s quite a steal! Once these bestsellers are gone, they are GONE. Get them now! A June new Stylist promotion has also been announced. Sign up as a new Stylist in the month of June and get up to $550 in FREE jewelry! That's $200 more than what comes with your $199 investment to start your own business. That’s quite good. I was ecstatic about

Napa 5-29-11

I love Napa. I have to thank my former boss and good friend, although I haven’t seen him in a long time, Kristian, for introducing me to wine. Always wonderful memories. Here’s Julia’s first wine trip outing over Memorial Day weekend. The italicized verbiage below is from my Yelp reviews at . Be-Friend me! Itinerary – she laughs that I’m such a planner. The best Muscat – something to smile about. A cool way to carry a bottle of wine. A private tasting room Cellar Black Stallion Winery This was our first stop in Napa this past weekend. I have been to Napa several times before but my friend has never gone. This was a first for both of us to visit a tasting room on the Silverado Trail. We pull into the main drive and see a limo parked right in front of the black stallion statue. Very cool. We made our way around to the parking lot where there were vintage cars parks and made it into the tasting room. We were immediately greeted, carded and
