Luck of the Stylish

As most of you know, I am a Stella & Dot stylist. I could not be more proud to be associated with such a great quality, styled and (honestly) addicting brand.

When you see me, you would probably recommend that I hire a stylist. I can never seem to pull off that polished look. My hair has flyaways, my nails are always chipped and I’m usually wearing jeans with a black shirt. It’s true that the look may have worked for Steve Jobs, but I’ve decided I needed more colour in my life.

I fell in love with Stella & Dot the first time I attended a show. The pieces were versatile and had the ability to change a plain black tee into something posh. I struggled wondering if I would be able to pull off the look and went back and forth on whether this was the right business investment. Last year I decided to jump right in and never looked back. It’s a lie if people tell you it’s easy money because like everything else in life, you get what you put in. And like every other job there are some challenges and some really big wins that make it all worth it.

Not only has being part of the Stella & Dot family added some extra income but it’s allowed me to meet some really great women and continues to challenge me to motivate myself. I’m a dreamer and having my own business has always been something that I wanted to do. As my jewellery collection grows, so does my confidence to venture out of my comfort zone and take chances.

The best part is that in addition to black, there is now pink, green and blue hanging in my closet so for that my mother is thankful. She hates black!

All this to let you know that I’m running a contest this week on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MarBairStellaDot For every $25 spent, you will be entered to win $100 in product credit. Contest ends on March 16th. Good luck and may the luck of the stylish be with!

For those that were involved in my day to day job search over the summer, you will probably remember my obsession with KIND Healthy Snacks. I loved everything about the company and literally stalked the hiring manager to give me an interview. I got an interview and was even called for a second interview. It seemed like the employment gods were finally listening to my prayers and this role was within reach. The process with KIND was taking a while and in the meantime, I was offered another role with a wine agent and really, how could I give up working for a wine company. I was equally obsessed with wine and the role was too great to pass up.  As much as I love my new job, there was still a little piece of my heart that was owned by those little fruit and nut bars.

I just couldn’t give it up, so I stalked the hiring manager again. I wrote her and asked if there was any way I could offer my services to the company, either by doing demos or working events. I was free evenings and weekends and would do anything!  Either she appreciated my passion or she realized that I wasn’t going to stop annoying her with emails because last night I became an official KIND Brand Ambassador!

It’s a part-time gig and just liked I pitched, I’ll be doing weekend demos and attending events in the city on their behalf.  I really love everything about this brand including all their initiatives on being KIND to your body, you taste buds and the world. I can’t wait to get started!

Those employment gods really knew what they were doing.  #pdw #stelladot #kindawesome
