Rise and Shine December 29 – New Year goals, giving away $50 in LuLaRoe credit, Crazy 8, Target storage and organization sale, Clean Eating magazine, Amazon jewelry sale, more


Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Only a few more days left in 2016. . . hard to believe the year is almost over. Do you have any New Years Resolutions or expectations/goals for 2017? I haven’t given this much thought. . . yet. . . I hope to have some time to reflect on things and set some goals for next year. I like the word “goals” a lot more than resolutions. . . and I think goals are always a good things to set. Doesn’t have to be anything huge – you can set a goal for a day, set goals for a week. I do this – I usually pick out 1 or 2 big items that I want to accomplish in a week and try to check it off my list before the week is up.


Yesterday I announced a giveaway for $50 in LuLaRoe credit! I’m giving away the $50 in LuLaRoe credit over in my LuLaRoe Facebook group. I’m also planning a couple epic sales over there this Friday night and Saturday. LuLaRoe clothing is sold exclusively in Facebook live events and album sales – both of which are in my LuLaRoe Facebook groupI’m getting five boxes of NEW inventory on Friday and I’m excited to see the new leggings and styles that we’ll be getting.

Have photos from the holidays? Let me tell you about Chat Books! I ordered my first set of Chat Books  a few weeks ago and I love them! They make small photo books of your social media accounts – like Instagram or Facebook. There is no tedious design or formatting needed like you might have with an official “photo book”. In fact, I created 14 Chat Books from our Airstream travels using my Instagram photos in . . .2 minutes. I’m not kidding – so easy.  I was feeling so guilty I hadn’t created photo books from our travels yet – but I just haven’t had time. And this – didn’t require time. I love it. Each page has one of my Instagram photos, the location it was taken and my caption. There are 60 pages per book. Each book is $8 and they offer free shipping. BUT you can get your first book for FREE by going through this link (it’s my referral link) and you should also be able to select free shipping!


Through Friday, you can order 2 years of Clean Eating Magazine for $19.50 (72% off)! You can also select a one-year subscription for $11.50. Just enter coupon code QUEENBEE at checkout. This is a RARE discount!
