Hoopla, part 2!
For the past 3 years, I’ve gotten to meet up with my “cousin” Katie and her friend Kirsten at Hoopla. Katie and I have grown up knowing each other through our mutual cousin (who would make quite a fabulous Stylist, I might add), so it’s funny that we both ended up working with Stella & Dot, just in different states. I say it all the time, but I just love how S&D brings people together or reconnects them with one another.
Devon is another shining example of reconnecting — we were hallmates in our dorm freshman year of college and hadn’t seen one another in years. She was invited to a trunk show I did for another girl from that same dorm hall, and Devon ended up signing up as a Stylist on my team. It’s been so fun getting to know each other again and helping her with her business!
Shannon is one of my Stylist favorites. We met a few years ago at Hoopla and have been friends ever since.
3,000 very stylish women packed into a room. This is what Day #1 of training looks like.
And we have the best leaders out there. Our VP of Training is a crazy Canadian lady whom we all adore and wish we could soak up her incredible energy. She started each day off by entertaining us as a can-can dancer, a show girl, and the King himself — Elvis. None of them disappointed.
I’ve never seen so many pairs of colorful flats in my life. And check out 2 of our new bags — the How Does She Do It in painted zebra and the Madison Tech Bag in poppy. Which is your fave?
My favorite slide from the entire training program. Of course it was courtesy of our crazy VP of Training, Danielle. Doesn’t it just make you smile?
For our last night, Chateau, the nightclub at the Paris Hotel, was rented out for our company dance party. Stella & Dot knows how to party.
Perfect view to end our trip — the Eiffel Tower on the Strip.
It’s hard to believe that another Hoopla has come and gone, but there are so many things to look forward to with the new line and all the goodness that fall brings in this business!
