LDBP:: Rose Marie's Bijourterie


Who:: Ashlee @ Rose Marie’s Bijourterie
Business Established:: May 2009. She had been making jewelry for a year or so prior, but her business really took off once she opened an Etsy shop.
What they do:: Rose Marie’s sells jewelry aimed for all the women in your life, young and old. Pieces are made mostly of silver plated chain, freshwater pearls, Czech glass beads, vintage beats and trendy charms and pendants. Ashlee’s two stepdaughters are her inspiration and give final approval on all items. Prices are also set low and reasonable for those on a budget.
How she finds balance:: Balancing work and life has always been a constant struggle for me! I am such a workaholic that I never want to stop, but then I remember that I really do have laundry to do, dinner to make, and a family to take care of. I think it's all about sorting your priorities. I'm lucky enough that our girls like to sit with me and make their own jewelry and that it keeps them entertained for hours.
Her best advice:: My only advice is to love what you do! Either way, it will make your life so much easier. From working, to family life, to your overall character - LOVE WHAT YOU DO!
What they are giving away:: 3 separate winners will receive a 17-inch Poolside necklace made of five green turquoise gemstone rondelles.
Play and win:: Visit Rose Marie’s Bijourterie and leave a comment here with your favorite necklace.

LDBP:: Pigtail Pals


Who:: Melissa @ Pigtail Pals
Business Established:: May 6, 2009 … after 2.5 years of planning, research and raising two babies.
What they do:: Pigtail Pals is a t-shirt company for girls with the motto to ‘Redefine Girly.’ The company is socially responsible and offers distinctive designs on stylish, premium tees. For more information, click here.
How she finds balance:: Snapshot: Me sitting at computer desk, bouncing toddler on knee & reading board book, playing "I Spy" with preschooler from other room, rubbing dog with foot under computer desk...all the while answering emails, making phone calls (impossible), and networking and marketing online.

I try to be a present and engaged mom during the day, only taking an hour or so in the morning and then again in the afternoon to work. I get the bulk of my work done from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m., then go to bed for four {yes, four} quick hours only to get up at 7 a.m. and do it all over again. My husband is extremely supportive and gives me help with the kids and around the house on evenings and weekends. Somehow, we manage, and do so with smiles on our faces.


Her best advice:: I've only been doing this for three months, but I've been told I'm doing it well, so my advice is such: Create a solid product {or service}. Research, research, and then do a little more research. Create a business plan, and get your numbers squared away. Go buy lots of coffee. Try to go into it prepared, knowing you'll have to change the game plan on the road to success. And finally, surround yourself with good people, get rid of toxic people. Oh, and BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!
What they are giving away:: One Pigtail Pal t-shirt {any size, any design}
Save Now:: Save 10% with coupon code girlfriends
Play and win:: Go to Pigtail Pals now and answer this question in a comment: What type of role models did founder Melissa, want for her daughter?
