I’m Melissa and I’m living the momprenuer life.
What’s the mompreneur life? Google defines mompreneur as a woman who sets up and runs her own business in addition to caring for her young child or children. I suspect many of us fall in this mompreneur lifestyle. Before children I had a full time marketing career which I loved and I blogged part time. When we welcomed our first son I decided it was time to kick things up a notch and make MelissaCreates.com my full time gig so that I could be home with baby and make my own schedule. This wasn’t a decision that was taken lightly and years of work lead up to it (you can read more about the decision here). This year I enter my 2nd year as a full time self employed mama and while it’s challenging it truly is the best job ever.
Above is one of our favorite family photos. Taken at Disney, a place we frequent, and with a Star Wars presence this is my family in truest form. The Lola skirt is one of my favorite pieces from Lularoe and I felt fantastic showing off the baby bump in it!
So where does LuLaRoe come in to play?
I’ve been a HUGE fan of Lularoe for a year or so and have toyed with the idea of being a consultant myself. On my 32nd Birthday I decided it was time to be part of a company that made such an impact on my life. Lularoe helped give this work from home mama confidence, it motivated me to get out of my jammies, it kept me comfortable while I transitioned from pregnancy to new mama and it showed me my new style (which I was searching for). The husband and I have already found Lularoe to be such a blessing to our family and I thought it was time to share that with my Melissa Creates friends.
Wearing my personal favorite Lularoe item, the Julia dress. This dress made me feel amazing during my pregnancy and it’s a great piece to wear post pregnancy too! The dress can be worn form fitting, with leggings, with a skirt or for a more relaxed fit it can be worn a size or two larger from your traditional size.
If you’re not familiar with the company, Lularoe is a clothing company that is so much more than just clothing. My goal is to make each woman feel amazing in what she wears and I sell stylish and comfortable leggings, shirts, skirts and dresses to help make that possible.
