My Nordstrom Anni Sale Wishlist

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13

Mall don’t do it for me.

They’re a real *yawn*.

BUTTTT whenever there’s a Nordstrom sale, I actually look forward to going to the mall because t’s literally the best sale…ever. I swear half of my closet is made up of the Nordstrom sale. Just because something’s on sale doesn’t mean you can’t rock that shit with tons of confidence. Own it!

Plus their anniversary sale always has fresh/new items, as opposed to dated pieces.

Anyway, these are my top thirteen favorites, although I did end up caving in & buying the moon/star PJ set. It was just too cute to pass up!!

Happy Thursday, x. Lauryn

Add a Little Glitter to Your #GIRLBOSS Biz Plan

The Skinny Confidential business plan.

Here’s something you may or may not know about me: I LOVE business.

Like, love, love.

It gets me goin’.

I love making moves.

I love growing my company.

I love branding.

It’s my ultimate passion.

& I’m hungry.

The Skinny Confidential business plan.

Sorry to get all realzies on ya, but growing The Skinny Confidential in to a mini empire is my dream— so naturally I thrive off anything that grows my mind when it comes to business.

BTW: I’m not hungry in a weird way, but ‘hungry’ in a healthy, motivated way.( Kinda like Leo in Wolf of Wallstreet. But without the illegal money shit, hookers, & coke ).

Leo was hungry for a challenge.

& whelp, Leo D. so am I.

Ready for a lil book club?

First I started reading #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso ( like every other girl in the world ), I was instantly inspired ( like every other girl in the world ).

But seriously.

Inspired because I felt like Sophia spoke to me.

Not, like, actually spoke to me, but I felt like she spoke ‘my language.’

Ya know?

Anyway, I wanted to share some of my favorite book quotes because you’re all my favorite homies…

The Skinny Confidential business plan.

Ahhhh. So, so true!!

AND THEN!!! I read The Glitter Plan by the Juicy Couture babes. Basically I read the whole thing in about three hours because it’s SUCH a great read for women entrepreneurs.

The Skinny Confidential business plan.

Here’s the deal: these badass, DETAIL-orientanted women ( Pam & Gela ) grew a company from $200 to to a multi-million dollar, global brand.

But wait, wait, wait, let’s back up: for me it’s not necessary about money. Money doesn’t motivate me.

The global brand part motivates me.

Noowwwwww we’re talking.

That gets my wheel’s spinning.

To create something out of nothing ( literally thin air ), is magical.

Not only is it magical, it’s inspiring, ambitious, and…well goes against the grain.

And lets be real, going against the norm is rad.rad.rad.

Reading about Pam & Gela’s journey has been so inspiring so I kinda had to showcase some kick-ass quotes on the blog:

The Skinny Confidential talks business.Back to their brand, Juicy Couture ( heard of it? HA! LOL ).

Basically it F-ing killed it.

The Skinny Confidential business plan.

What I love most about their brand/book is it’s the real deal. They share the nitty-gritty shit that no one sees.

You see their struggle. The hours, the passion, the time, the sweat, the tears, the F-you’s, the hard work.

I mean…it’s not like they nonchalantly woke up to Juicy billboards all over LA/NYC/etc one day.

And I’m totally with them ( & Sophia ) on the luck thing.

I’m not lucky, you’re not lucky, Steve Jobs wasn’t lucky, Rachel Zoe isn’t lucky…

YOU.MAKE.YOUR.OWN.DAMN.LUCK.

Also, they talk competition. They pretty much say a lil competition never hurt a flea. In fact, it kinda pushes the flea to do better:

The Skinny Confidential business plan.

Pam & Gela lay it out simple: they worked their asses off to get where they’re at. And in the meantime, they stayed true to their brand & consumer.

So basically, as Drake would say, they “started from the bottom now they’re here.”

Anyway last night I was laying in bed finishing The Glitter Plan & a lightbulb went off: I had to share my bookmarked/dog earred pages/quotes with YOU guys.

The quotes I’ve chosen, REALLY resonated, so I hope you love them as much as I do ( AKA they’re hanging on my ceiling/on the fridge/tattooed on my face ).

The Skinny Confidential business plan.

So ta-da.

These are part of #GIRLBOSS & The Glitter Plan that spoke to me. At the end of the day, I’m just sharing any piece of the puzzle that inspires TSC-empire-on-training-wheels.

The Skinny Confidential business plan.

Anyone else got a badass #GIRLBOSS Glitter Plan? Share!!
