Why did you choose SweetLegs? What’s your story?
I didn’t choose SweetLegs, they chose me (and my husband gave me a not so gentle nudge towards them as well)! I first started wearing SweetLegs after my daughter was born, and I hosted a party shortly after because HELLO! FREE SWEETLEGS!!! I first applied around Christmas and at the time did not get accepted. Everything happens for a reason though, and our life was soon thrown up into the air when my husband was diagnosed with cancer.
It was few crazy hectic years of our first born starting kindergarten coupled with my husbands diagnosis, recovery (all while running his own business) and keeping ourselves alive and functioning. When things had settled down, my husband mentioned I should apply again as I deserved to have my own thing, and get out of the house a bit more (I swear we function better when we don’t see each other – distance makes the heart grow fonder, right?) Not one to make things easy on ourselves we also decided to sell our place and move all at the same time. I was accepted as Distributor the same week we sold our house and bought our new home!
“SweetLegs has managed to keep me on my toes, and grounded me all at the same time.”
How has being a SweetLegs Independent Distributor impacted your life?
SweetLegs has managed to keep me on my toes, and grounded me all at the same time. My own self confidence has increased as I help women feel better about themselves, their bodies, and their personal style. It has brought me into contact with amazing women (and men) who inspire me to be a better person, and bring more light and love into others lives. I’ve cried and laughed with them and I’ll forever be grateful to SweetLegs for bringing us all together.
Tell us something about yourself that others may not know?
I can do a dead-on impression of a donkey.
What is your most memorable customer interaction?
I was recently at a party explaining how our sizing works – it can be a bit tricky, and some times it takes a while to understand. At this party I was able to show new customers that three of us were wearing the same size. I prefer to wear petite, (I’m on the border of One size/Petite), a preteen was also wearing petite, and another who was pregnant was wearing it as well. The look on their faces was priceless!
Where would you go in a time machine?
I would love to go back into to England/Scotland as a rich courtier. But only for a visit. I don’t think I could handle the lack of plumbing and drafty castles for long!
Share an amazing SweetLegs story with us?
I had one customer who came to her daughter’s party just to visit with friends. She had absolutely no intention of buying or trying on SweetLegs. The woman had recently been though some health issues and was dealing with some clinical depression, and none of her clothes were fitting her, and she couldn’t find anything in the stores that didn’t look ‘frumpy’. Halfway through the party, her daughter and I noticed she had disappeared. She found her mother in her bedroom with a pile of SweetLegs and had tears in her eyes. After she had seen everyone parading out in their SweetLegs she had decided to try on a pair. Then she grabbed a few more, and more, and eventually she walked out with 5 pairs of SweetLegs and had regained some of her confidence back.
What do you want others to know about being a SweetLegs Distributor?
It might sound corny, but I fully believe we do more than just sell SweetLegs. Our motto is ‘Self-Confidence is the best outfit, Rock it & OWN IT‘, and we’re creating and spreading awareness that EVERYONE is beautiful, it doesn’t matter what size you are. Deep down everyone has their insecurities, but we’re lifting up each other and creating a better world for our mothers, sisters, daughters and loved ones.
Can you share a holiday recipe with us?
My all time favourite recipe is my Christmas Cheeseball:
- Equal parts Cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese with a dash of Worcestershire and tabasco and green onions.
I only make it once a year, otherwise I’d eat it every day!
What makes your life Sweet?
My family. I have an amazing husband who works so hard to support us and create a better life for myself and our children. We have two beautiful, strong and kind kids. My son is one of the sweetest souls I have ever met, and my daughter is so feisty and confident (I really wish I could be more like them at times!)
Also, coffee is pretty good too 😉
