Work from Home with Oberlo: Set up an On-line Store for FREE!!

Shopping has come a long way in the last hundred years! I recently discovered Oberlo, a free dropshipping application that allows you to easily import products from AliExpress directly into your store and ship directly to your customers – in only a few clicks. I tried it out this week and was amazed at how easy it was. I couldn't wait to share about it with my lovely readers. Read on to find out exactly how Dropshipping works and how you can get started totally for free!
Dropshipping is a retail fulfillment method, a simple e-Commerce business model, which allows you to sell products online without stocking a large inventory. It’s a way to easily start your first businesses or boost your current store’s efficiency. I literally signed up in minutes and didn't have to put in my credit card info or anything to get started!
There's no capital investment, because there's no inventory to hold. Dropshippers don’t have to manage a warehouse (or even free up space in your attic or closet!) You also don't have to take care of any of the packaging, shipping, or delivery of items. Since you don't have to acquire products beforehand, there's no risk that you'll end up with a bunch of overstock things you might not sell. There's an incredible variety of products available to add to your store with just a click of the mouse! In dropshipping, you can list a wide catalogue of products from as many wholesalers as you want.  I couldn't believe how easy it was to add items to my store! With Oberlo, it could not be more efficient. I was impressed!
Go to, click ‘start your free trial’, enter your store name, and create your shop. It’s easy, fast and most important you don’t need to be a developer to create you store and you don't have to put in any credit card info! With Shopify, you get a 14 day free trial.You don't even have to cancel. They cancel it for you unless you decide to officially sign up, so if you don't think this is the right thing for you after 2 weeks, there's nothing you need to do but simply forget about it.


Install the Oberlo app (you can use it on your computer or smart phone). To be honest, Shopify confused me at first but once I added the Oberlo app, it all made sense and was completely easy. No wonder Oberlo is the most popular dropshipping app on Shopify! It allows you to easily import products from AliExpress directly into your Shopify store and ship directly to your customers – in only a few clicks.    

Once you install Oberlo, you have an option to browse and import products from Aliexpress directly to your Shopify store. Just pick a niche and select products you want to sell. It’s super easy! There are literally thousands (millions??) of items. I chose "Women's Fashion" and it came up with 40,000 pages of gorgeous things I could add to my store! Check out all of the categories in my screenshot below.

Oberlo is the best dropshipping solution on the market that I can imagine! Remember, it's a totally free app and you can have a 14 day free trial on Shopify, so there's nothing to lose! Which category would you choose for your store? Let me know if you decide to try it out and even share a link to your store below so we can support you!

The #1 Thing EVERY Fur Baby's Parent Should Have on Hand!

Last year, I thought I was going to lose my fur baby. Lucy became very sick! At first, she was simply not playful, lethargic. The next day, she wouldn't eat or drink! Calling the vet, they said to try feeding her things that were easy on her stomach--watered-down mashed potatoes and chicken broth. For another couple of days, she would eat those things--but only sitting at the table with me spoon feeding her. What made matters worse was that we were supposed to be leaving on a month-long trip to the midwest. I hugged my baby and worried about what we should do, and I have to admit, I really started worrying "what if I lose my Lucia?"
Once it was obvious she needed to go to the vet, we took her to the vet a couple of days before we were supposed to leave on our trip. They did a series of tests. It turned out she had a bacterial overgrowth in her intestines. She needed an antibiotic and something called FortiFlora... Both meds worked wonders! But if I had known about FortiFlora, I could have been giving it to her before the bacterial overgrowth became serious and it could have prevented her from getting so sick that she needed antibiotics.
FortiFlora is a probiotic that comes in both dog and cat varieties. It's live and active cultures (like what you find in yogurt) specially made for pets. You simply sprinkle it on top of their food. It must taste delicious because Lucy loves it and thinks of it as a treat! We bought our first box from the vet for about $40. I wish I would have had a box on hand, as sells them for $25--I could have saved $15! Now I always keep a box in the pantry and feed Lucy a packet about twice a week just to keep her intestinal health up. Everyone should have a box of this stuff! Then you'll be ready if your fur baby comes up with diarrhea. It may prevent you from paying a big vet bill and it will give you peace of mind, keeping your little angel healthy.
While I was taking the pretty FortiFlora blog photo, Lucy came up and said, "What are my treats doing up there, mom?!" She knocked the bowl down with her paw and WHOOSH! kibbles all over the floor! At least she didn't mind cleaning up the mess. ;)
The best place to get FortiFlora at a discount is They have both the cat and dog varieties for $24.69! So much better than the vet's $40...

Salty Bath, The Most Pampering Spa by Mail! #Discount

Receiving Salty Bath in the mail is like receiving a pampering spa in a box! I was amazed at how gorgeous it was upon opening--even before opening--and I was especially impressed with all of the thought that went into its contents.

Five of my favorite things in the whole wide world are tea, dark chocolate, candles, essential oils, and bath salts and I was thrilled to see they had included all of these things! There was also the touch nice of dried lavender which made the box smell heavenly upon opening, and an organic all-purpose balm salve that contains another of my favorite things--coconut oil. And when it says "all-purpose", it really is! I even use it in my hair instead of gel and it makes my curls so soft and frizz-free. This box, you guys!! I love it!!!

Salty Bath's website explains the box as "Luxurious moments of stillness. Where stress and tension melt away. Where your spirit is restored and you have a total body experience that completely recharges you. That's...Salty Bath." And it really is. I haven't been this impressed with a box in quite awhile.

Special thanks to the wonderful people at Salty Bath for providing me with this box to review. All opinions are thoughtful and are my own.

Newport Skinny Tea: Delicious, Energizing, and it Works!

I'm 38 and I have to admit, once 30 hit me, it really seemed like my metabolism suddenly slowed down! Suddenly, chasing around 4 kids was just not enough exercise to keep me fit and I couldn't eat whatever I wanted and get away with it.  Not that I eat a ton, I don't--but I do have a thing for sweets, I love carbs, and I was drinking a ton of soda to keep me energized all day (wrong way to stay energized--trust me!)  About 2 years ago, I did a diet plan for 3 months and it worked!  You couldn't drink soda with it, though, so I switched to tea.  The fact that both of my best friends drink a lot of tea definitely helped!   

Well, it turns out there is this amazing and delicious tea called Skinny Tea--it's actually the perfect combination of what you need to have energy throughout the day, curb your appetite just enough, and give you perfect rest at night.  Plus, it's delicious! Did I already say that?  I did... but it is!  It comes loose leaf--loose leaf tea always seems fresher to me and always tastes better but I really don't like those tea ball things--the tiniest pieces of tea somehow always get through and I don't like to drink it so I found these cheap little bags at Amazon.  They're perfect! 
Feeling perfect because... TEA! And also, a pretty dress. 

Newport Skinny Tea does what it says it does--"Curbs Cravings, Stops Bloat, and Enhances Energy". The combination of a diet program and Skinny Tea more than works--I cannot recommend it highly enough If you want to look better than you ever have, or as good as you did in high school, it's so worth it!  I totally wish I could post a bathing suit pic of me--but my hubby wants those for his eyes only.  ;)

You Can Find Newport Skinny Tea On

Imperial Glamour Beauty, the Subscription Box that Truly Makes You Feel Like a Princess! #pamperyourselflikeaprincess

I am so honored to be featured on the cover of the new historical Christian fiction novel, Awaiting the Reign! A theme that so resonates with me is that every woman is a princess because her father in Heaven is the King of kings, and my favorite beauty box fits that so perfectly.
Once upon a time, a princess named Mary had the idea of creating a natural and organic monthly beauty subscription... and Imperial Glamour was born! Every month, the recipient is blessed with a box filled with natural, organic, and vegan products curated around a special theme. February's theme: Pucker Up Buttercup! Yes, m'ladies, all of these goodies are about pampering our lips.
The February box came filled to the brim with $37 worth of goodies. There was also a lipstick not pictured here (I gave that one to my mom, as I'm more of a lip gloss girl... but I realized that I forgot to take the pics before I gave it away!)
It's hard to pick just one favorite with this box as many of them compliment each other perfectly. I was so excited to see the makeup bag! It's a nice one, and my old one was in tatters! Besides that, my other favorites are now a part of my new daily routine: the orange sugar scrub (you'll see that in a minute) followed up with the plumping lip balm and...
... the clear Luscious Lip Gloss. After these 3 wonderful items, my lips don't even need any color. They look fresh and full, prettily pink fitting for a princess like the one of the cover of Miss Pizarro's book. ;)

This orange sugar lip scrub is made by Body by The Good Stuff and it is definitely good stuff! It's as good as Mary Kay's Satin Lips, better because it's organic and tastes incredible! It has you wanting to lick your lips... or just eat the whole jar... but a princess probably wouldn't do that. ;)
You can use the code Two4One to purchase any 2 Imperial Glamour Boxes from 2016 for a total of $40--that's $10 savings... or subscribe for monthly boxes here!

You can read Awaiting the Reign for free if you have Kindle Unlimited or purchase the paperback copy for $9 and free shipping here.

Special thanks to the lovely Mary for providing me with this subscription box to review! All opinions are honest and my own.
