An honest review of LuLaRoe clothing

Standard

Generally I like LuLaRoe clothes. I easily have over 30 pieces. However, there are some tips and tricks I follow to make sure I am spending smartly. Here’s a summary, but jump beneath the cut to read more in depth:

  • I try to only buy if I am getting at least 30% off
  • Do not buy a print you love in a size/style you won’t wear
  • I only buy the Perfect T for the T shirt styles
  • I do not buy any of the cover up type styles
  • Leggings are nice
  • Carly and Nicole are my preferred dresses
  • Madison is my favorite skirt
  • Sizes can vary!!!
  • I wear between an XS to a L across the styles, so be sure to try on styles at a local retailer/consultant before you buy online
  • I would not recommend becoming a LLR retailer/consultant

How to: bleach/dye your hair from brown to blonde at home!

Standard

For 22.5 years of my life my hair had always been brown and I had never ventured much into messing with it. Sort of on a whim I decided to get a bob and have it dyed orange — the biggest haircut I had ever had I think and the first time I had my hair bleached. The bill for this was insane though! $160 without tip. From that day I decided I wouldn’t waste my money any longer and would learn how to dye my hair myself (I still pay for haircuts though).

It took me a lot of mucking around to figure things out perfectly for me, but now I’ve got it down to a science. I have rather thin hair; before dyeing it it was the type of hair that wouldn’t hold a curl. If your hair type is different the following may not work as well for you.

Here’s a quick list of what you’ll need; read more below for more description, tips and tricks!

  • Powder bleach
  • Developer
  • Mixing bowl and brush
  • Gloves
  • Disposable shower cap
  • Non metal hair clips
  • Ion absolute perfection booster step 1 and 2
  • Wella T18 and T14 (depending on your natural undertones)

Online shopping tools: Paribus

Standard

I shop online pretty frequently between Target, Amazon, and clothing brands I know my size like Banana Republic and Anthropologie. Now I typically wait until there is a good sale, but there is another way to continue to potentially save money.
Most retailers have a grace period where if a price drops you can submit a claim and you will be credited with the price difference.
However — retailers won’t do this for you.
