Kentucky Derby Mint Julep

It’s not always easy being a Texas girl living in Kentucky… but Springtime in the Bluegrass is beautiful!  And with the beginning of May, we get one of Kentucky’s most famous events, the Kentucky Derby.  Check out this video for a great, easy party drink- the Kentucky Derby Mint Julep.

Celebrating your love of the ponies and all things Bluegrass is really easy.  All you will need is a glass (preferably a silver julep cup), fresh mint, simple syrup, crushed ice, and your favorite fine Kentucky Bourbon.  Watch the video for details on mixing and serving this Derby favorite.

On a side note- my husband was very excited to come home to some freshly made mint juleps!  As a Kentucky native and lover of bourbon, he was impressed by how well this simple recipe turned out.  Keep this one basic.  Lots of people put effort into making their mint julep recipe unique and usually end up ruining it.  Just mix this one up, sit back, relax, and sip in the spring weather!

What is inside a Pure Romance kit?

One of my most exciting days as a Pure Romance Consultant was the day I received my kit.  I had heard from other consultants about how fun it was to “Pop the Box” and go through all of the awesome Pure Romance Products inside.  Many new consultants even have Pop the Box parties, inviting friends to see what goodies lie in wait inside… Seems like a great way to get your Pure Romance career started if you ask me!

So if you have considered joining Pure Romance or even just booking your own party, you probably have questions.  What is inside a Pure Romance kit?  How do I go about getting my new business off the ground?  This video will answer some of those questions.

You should also know that when it comes to starting a business, it’s not a one-size-fits-all kind of thing. That’s why Pure Romance three different starter kit options, designed to fit any budget and interest level. From the standard (I’m just going to do a couple parties a month) to the full monty (I’m going to party ’til my feet fall off), you can select the starter kit that’s right for you.

Just FYI, when I joined I went with the Premium Kit and never looked back.  Loaded with more best selling products than any other kit, the Premium Starter Kit helps you begin your Pure Romance career feeling prepared, confident, and ready to sell! This kit includes a full range of products to display, plus extra inventory to sell immediately! Buy a Premium Kit and receive automatic Activation and a 45% buying discount for life!

Excuses we make…to deny ourselves of FUN!

pure romance excusesI’ve heard them all. Some are very legitimate, I get that. But most are simply about women stepping a little bit outside of their comfort zone and allowing themselves to have a night of FUN! I have to ask… why do we make excuses that deny us of that experience?

I’ve been running my own Pure Romance business full time for over a year now. (Yup, that’s right. I quit a full time job as an advertising executive to do PR full time!)  I provide in-home parties for adult women – an ultimate girls’ night, of sorts. My party schedule stays booked.  Most women are so excited to have a Girls’ Night In that they wouldn’t miss it!  And if something does pop up, I can usually reschedule parties within a relatively short time frame.

But some girls get cold feet.  They won’t allow themselves to schedule a party or book a party and then talk themselves out of it.  It frustrates me, not because they cancelled a party, but because these hardworking women won’t allow themselves JUST ONE NIGHT OF FUN.  And they deserve it- or worse – they NEED it.

So now I’m on a crusade.  To make sure you get to have your Girls’ Night In, I’ve compiled a list of my top 7 excuses women use to deny themselves.  And I’m going to BLOW THEM UP.

Top 7 excuses women make to deny themselves of fun.

Life is just too busy right now.

I have to agree with you.  We women are always busy.  We take care of the kids, and hold jobs, and maintain the house… it never ends.  But that is exactly why you need JUST ONE NIGHT to yourself, with your friends, to cut loose and just be you!  I make it easy for you.  You provide the place and the people.  I’ll do the rest.  I bring the party (the games, the awesome products) and I will even coach you along the way with party themes, drink ideas, and easy ways to get your friends to attend.

My friends are too conservative.

I hear this one a lot.  Would it surprise you to know that a large part of my customer base is with conservative, Christian ladies?  I live in the Bible belt, so yeah 🙂 I want you to have a rockin’ party and Pure Romance can give you that… along with some education, empowerment, and entertainment!  My presentation is fun, tastefully presented, and for adult women only. You will learn things about your body that you didn’t know.  You WILL have fun!  You won’t be embarrassed or exposed to anything “unhealthy.” When we wrap up the show, all shopping takes place in a one-on-one, private setting & everything is confidential so only YOU know what goodies are going home with you!

My house isn’t big enough to have a party.

All I need is a space large enough for a small table, and a private space for ordering after the presentation is done.  That’s it.  Don’t have a table?  Flip over a cardboard box and gather some friends around!  You’d be surprised how many girls we can pack into a “too small” space. Still don’t think the area is big enough? Then ask a girlfriend if she’d be willing to offer up her place for the party & she can be your co-host. Have her pool her friends with yours and you both get hostess rewards!

My kids take all of my time.

Kids are definitely a lot of work.  You deserve a break.  Get a babysitter (pool money with your other mommy girlfriends so they can come to your party too!) or send your partner out with the kids for a few hours.  They will come back home to a much happier version of you!

My partner won’t approve.

He knows you’re not going to an orgy, right? Many have no idea what to think when someone says they’re attending a “sex toy party” and the imaginations start to run w-i-l-d!  Pure Romance is founded on the belief that every woman should have the tools to become the best version of herself in order to foster healthy relationships… and that knowledge & confidence carries over into intimacy as well. Pure Romance is SO MUCH MORE than just bedroom accessories. We have an amazing line of bath and beauty products, fun foreplay and massage items.  Give him a gift from our men’s bath line.  He’ll love the way he smells and feels!  I encourage couples to look over the catalog together and contact me with any questions or if needing suggestions. And he’s welcome to join you in the shopping room at the party after the show!

I can’t get that many people together.

I hear this one way too often from people who are active on Facebook and social media.  This is an easy one.  I will create a private Facebook event for your party.  Invite all of your friends to the event – don’t forget to include your hairdresser, aunts, book club, etc, and ask them to bring friends with them!  Plus, if you provide addresses, I will mail customized party invitations for you.  All you have to do is be active on the private Facebook party page so your guests are engaged (we know you spend lots of time on Facebook anyway.)  Call people, text them, email them.  If you book it, they will come!

I don’t have any money.

Remember, it’s always free to have your very own Pure Romance girls’ night!  As the hostess, you will receive gifts and rewards from your consultant based on the party returns.  The more successful your party is, the bigger your FREE shopping spree rewards are! So what are you waiting for? Let’s grab a handful of your closest girlfriends and party!!

Every bride-to-be needs a proper bachelorette party! (Guys aren’t the only ones that deserve one last night out without a ring on their finger…)  As it turns out, Pure Romance specializes in creating the perfect Girl’s Night Out!  I recently attended the 2016 Bridal Bliss Evening Classic to get in front some brides to get the word out about the amazing fun we have to offer!

Bridal Bliss ClassicThe Bridal Bliss Classic event comes to Lexington several times a year.  The Evening Classic takes place in February and the daytime Winter & Summer Classics happen in January and August, respectively.  The best part is that the event is FREE for brides & their bridal parties to attend – all you have to do is pre-register.  Hundreds of brides-to-be attended and met with tons of vendors showing anything from cakes, dj services, and wedding dresses, to table rentals and party planning.

My Pure Romance partner-in-crime, Ashley, and I set up a beautiful table showcasing the bachelorette party night that only Pure Romance can put on, and gave away a ton of free goodies. It was a blast, and we loved meeting each and every one of the girls that came by our booth.  We can’t wait to throw parties for the brides that we made contact with… they are gonna be awesome! THANK YOU to all of the fun ladies that we met!

Strong Women – Meet Molly

Strong is the new sexy.  Don’t take my word for it.  Just take a look around… Crossfit women are a main attraction on major sports networks, Serena Williams (tennis pro) is named 2016 Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the year, and Ronda Rousey (UFC Fighter) is set to make her second appearance in SI’s Swimsuit Issue.  What do these women have in common?  They are all examples of women who are successful, beautiful… and not necessarily the physical ideal of sexiness that mainstream media normally pushes into our heads.

Meet Molly.  She is a local Lexington woman who has gone viral by making some social media posts about her body and how she feels about it.  I sort of know Molly, but she doesn’t know me. I’ve seen her at the gym (Lexington Athletic Club) and around my neighborhood out for a run with her significant other.  She’s hard to miss.  She has a very strong physique and a confidence about her that impresses.  Molly posted a picture of herself in a bikini on vacation with the caption “This is my body. This is not a before picture. This is not an after picture. This just happens to be what my body looks like on a random Tuesday in December of 2015 — it’s a life picture. This is a body that loves protein and vegetables and queso and ice cream.”

…And the internet went BONKERS.  This photo and accompanying quote has made it to ABC News, People magazine, Huffington Post, and even the Today Show.  Click here to read an article from the Lexington Herald Leader about Molly.  What’s amazing about Molly is that she is in love with her body.  She is comfortable with the fact her body changes as she moves through life.  And she is happy with that.  She loves who she is and her confidence is proof of that.

Is she what the mainstream media would call “sexiest woman alive?”  Probably not.  But that’s not the point.  She is beautiful in a real way,  a way that can be appreciated by anyone who has the luck to meet her or take one of her classes.  She has a personal training business, Girlsgonestrong.com, which  offers  strength training packages and an online coaching.  Her business works to teach girls to appreciate their bodies as they are, not as most magazine ads say they should be.

But what about the rest of us? Well, don’t be afraid to take charge of who you are and what you want your body to be. I work hard to eat well, exercise, and empower other women around me.  It’s not always easy, but nothing worth having is.  Will I ever become a supermodel? Umm, no.  But knowing that I’m the best version of myself can bring a level of confidence that unleashes my inner superhero!

So congrats on your achievements, Molly!  You are something that more women should aspire to be – confident, strong, and happy in your own skin!
