As someone who lists online shopping as one of their top hobbies, I’m always on the lookout for new ways to heighten the experience. Plus, I know y’all are always looking for the latest and greatest, so weeding through the crop to find the best of the best is a welcomed challenge. Last week, I discovered an innovative shopping community built around your own social media called shopyourway.com. It’s a marketplace of vendors selling a vast array of products with a chance to explore, share and recommend products. By signing up for shopyourway.com you also get to play personal stylist. You will be an influencer of shopyourway.com, a social platform for the rapidly growing Shop Your Way program. You will acquire clients however you wish – whether through friends, family, acquaintances, or social media – and receive a commission from every qualifying purchase they make. And lets face it, with summer around the corner, any extra money towards those future getaways is a major bonus!

So how does it work?

   When your clients shop, they earn points that they can later redeem to reduce the cost of their next purchase
   Clients earn 10 points on every dollar spent on qualifying purchases at Sears, Lands’ End, Kmart and mygofer.com
   1,000 points = $1 to redeem in store or online
   No minimum points level is required for redemption
·     Redeem your points as soon as your very next purchase

Wait, did you say clients?

Your clients are basically anyone who wants extra advice or assistance in finding the perfect product, outfit, or gift. Your assistance as their Personal Shopper will not only save them time, but also money! Make them say, “Why not? It’s FREE!”

Show me the moooooney!

YOU will receive commission on your sales and each month the commission structure will reset giving you fresh goals to reach. I had a lot of fun shopping the site and picking out my Hunter BootsKate Spade iPhone case and a Madewell tee (not pictured). I encourage you to check out the site here. You can sign up here and remember, new personal shoppers get $20 in points when their clients make a combined $20 in qualifying purchases at Sears, Kmart, and participating Lands' End stores in their first 30 days.

My Interview with The Crest


I'm super excited to share a piece of my interview for Vince Camuto's The Crest. A huge thank you to everyone involved and for making me sound much cooler than I really am. Here's a snippet of the super sweet article:

Given Anna James’ impressive resume, you’d never guess that blogging wasn’t her original career path. Blogging was more like a do-or-die, shape up or ship out, last-ditch effort to stay in the fashion game. After scoring a coveted BCBG internship, Anna left behind her conventional hometown and moved to the sunny and liberating West Coast. Upon graduation from Auburn University, Anna began working as a multi-brand, visual merchandiser for 23 high-end department stores. Anna’s career—the result of tenacious and focused hard work—was deservedly blossoming. She was living her dream.

But, like the economy, Anna’s bubble burst. The company unexpectedly laid off Anna’s entire department—and just days before Christmas to boot. While most would be discouraged and regretfully pack up their bags with a shrug, Anna picked herself up by her bootstraps—or, in her case, more likely high-heeled Mary Jane straps—and became her own boss. The resilient Anna launched her personal and celebrity style blog FashBoulevard, never to be vulnerable to unemployment again.

Any aspiring or newbie blogger can learn a great lesson from Anna’s experience: hard work, a genuine perspective and confidence in yourself will yield results. And FashBoulevard is a direct testament. We asked Anna to share how she spices up those blah style days and the key style tip she picked up from her boss, fashion mogul Lauren Conrad.
