We have turned the corner my friends! The summer tires have been put on, the grass has been mulched, the sprinkler system has been reset, the driveway and deck have been pressure-washed, the snow-blower has been stuffed into the shed and the bikes have returned to their token spot in the garage (dang! my hubby has been busy!!). Such a wonderful sight to see little pops of green in my yard - the buds on my willow trees and rose bushes have already opened and my perrenials are working hard to make their debut for another season! I love it!

I would like to wish all of you mom's a wonderful Mother's Day on the 10th. May you celebrate your mom's for all they have done, for all they have sacrificed, for all they have taught you, and for all the love they have given - mom's truly are priceless and irreplaceable.
May you also let your families celebrate YOU for those very same reasons! I mean c'mon - we are multi-tasking rock stars!! :) This will be my first Mother's Day without my mom and I miss her terribly, however I will find joy in the memories of our time together. I am forever grateful for her sense of humor and the love she gave - it keeps me strong, still.

I am sending this newsletter out a few days early as there are some fabulous promotions going on for the first few days of May - free shipping and a fabulous Mother's Day deal plus some amazing trunk show exclusives! Check it out!

Hostess Rewards

So many options these days of how to host a trunk show - which one suits you best?

1) In-Home Trunk Show
Wine and nibbles with your girlfriends or weekend muffins and mimosas? Don't over-think it - it can be simple & easy and this type of trunk show typically yields the best hostess rewards.
2) On-Line Trunk Show
A virtual on-line trunk show via a Facebook event - we set a date & time, you invite your friends, and I'll do a 30 minute live-chat styling session for the group where I post pictures and talk about top sellers, my favourites, promotions, etc. Why is on-line shopping so popular? Because it is generally frowned upon to shop with no bra, sweatpants, and a glass of wine! :) I haven't done one of these types of shows yet and I would love to have a volunteer to be my first hostess! Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?

3) Cupcakes & Catalogues
I'll drop off cupcakes & catalogues to your office and check back in a week to collect any orders. I can even drop off a small bag of jewels a few days later if there are specific items people would like to see in person.

Let me know which trunk show suits you best and "let's book it Dano!" :)

Summer & Spring Lookbooks

As you browse the links below, look for items with a "V" beside them - this stands for Versatility and it means the item pictured has some type of versatility (removeable pieces, varying lengths, multiple ways to wear, etc.).

Until Next Time...

Once again, Happy Mother's Day to you all. I hope you treat your mom extra-special on May 10th and your family does the same for you!

Hope to hear from you soon!

xo,
Shawna

P.S. I am lucky enough to have two of these...
