Okay, let’s first chat verbiage. I know some people think that they have a hard time pulling off things that are “boxy”. But, we're here to tell you that you can pull it off. No, seriously. Just think of these pieces as less "boxy" and more "structured." Our CLOVER dress is everything and her structured skirt makes her perfect for all the layering. Check out the way Kayla styled this look and repeat. We promise you’ve got this!

The next style is a the Lily. She is a slip like dress that is literally the perfect layering piece. The Lily makes our 90’s hearts so happy because you can literally wear her in so many ways.

Hive Beauty Box : Kayla's July Beauty Picks

Hey beauty babes! July is definitely a month where it gets hot, hot hot! So there is no reason for you to not to look just as hot - mind, body, and style. We have asked Kayla what her top Beauty Picks are for July and this is what she had to say. 

 Our   Sun Mist   and Moon Milk is the perfect combo to keep your skin looking amazing during the hot months- especially July. The Lavender in both of the products is soothing and calming and will get that sunburn or sun irritated skin back to its beautiful glow asap. Kayla loves Lavender because it soothes stressed skin, helps you wind down after a long day in the sun, and increases circulation helping your skin make a full recovery. Oh and did we mention that these amazing products are certified organic!?

5 Simple Summer Vacation Style Strategies!

It's that time of year again. Summer is in full swing and travel plans are on the books. It isn't simple traveling and feeling and looking your best in style shouldn't add any extra pressure. We have found 5 ways to simplify your summer travel in style. You deserve to look your best on vacation and not have to think twice about it. 

  Pack Lightly -  Use a   weekender bag.   We can't say enough about how amazing a weekend is. They are perfect for any travel length and are super easy to carry.   If you're going for 5 days, pack 5 staples. You can always mix and match with staples- such as solid tops and pants. Having staples that you can pair with other pieces will allow for daily outfits to be simple and stylish.    Roll It Up -  We are talking clothing here. Rolling instead of folding is a HUGE space saver. Pack your bulkiest pieces in the corners and your lightest pieces in the center and on top. This will also allow you to take mental note of where each of your pieces is packed.     Learn To Layer -  We love layering and it is the easiest way to dress up any outfit. Having lightweight layers such as kimonos and cardigans is perfect for summer style. Throwing a kimono over your favorite   cami   and   pant   will spice up any outfit making it the perfect day to night transition piece.

We have also found that by having a few pieces of   jewelry   - such as earrings - you can dress up your daytime look and be ready for a girl's night out in no time flat.

  Pack Fabrics That Won't Wrinkle -  We pride ourselves in thinking about all the things that women need when it comes to style. That includes fabrics that travel and wear well. As moms, we know the importance of wearable and wrinkle-free fabrics. I mean come one - who has time for ironing? Most days we barely wash the laundry. Most of our pieces are Rayon blends that don't hold any wrinkles. How cool is that?   Shop our travel-friendly pieces!

So what is this fair trade business and why does it matter?

Hello beauties,

Hive Beauty Box prides itself on the fact that most everything is domestically made here in the USA. We also love supporting women in business across the globe. How do we do this? By making sure what we buy is ethically made and fair trade. So what is fair trade? 

Fair Trade noun. - trade in which fair prices are paid to producers in developing countries.

What does fair trade mean to Hive Beauty Box? It means that people should be treated fairly, they should be given the basic resources to live a healthy household and lifestyle. We proudly partner with organizations that regulate and ensure that all of our products on our shelves are created with the highest ethical standards possible. We will never compromise someone's livelihood to save a dollar. So remember sometimes something might cost more but that is because we choose to partner with people who care. People who will be sure that our artisans are taken care of and loved in the way every human being has the right to be. 

One of the non-profits we work with in Guatemala has begun to form small loans for members of our organization, encouraging them to develop projects and businesses that interest their creative minds, to supplement their income. It is the goal to see many more artisan craft shops around the country of Guatemala and hopefully to generate enthusiasm with outside partners as well.

 These are some of the artisans that create our beautiful bags and other goods. We can't wait to go to Gutamala later this year to spend more time with them. 

These are some of the artisans that create our beautiful bags and other goods. We can't wait to go to Gutamala later this year to spend more time with them. 

It is an exciting time for Hive Beauty Box and our partners and I hope that you can shop with us knowing that what your doing is supporting social good. Want to shop our fair trade goods? SHOP HERE! 

Four Styling Tips for Transitioning Seasons- Seasonal Staples.

Yes, we are saying that it is okay to be basic when it comes to style. Here are our top four styling tips for transitioning your closet quickly and easily. Two words- Seasonal staples.

  Use Versatile Pieces -  having pieces in your closet that are multi-functional is key to keeping your wardrobe on trend. Wrap dresses are great for this because they can double as dusters.   Shop our wraps here!      Accessories are everything  - adding earrings, hats, and bags is an easy way to dress up any #ootd and to look more put together. Be sure to have neutrals and pops of colors so that you can mix and match when you need to.   Shop our accessories here!      Layer up -  Layering with pieces that you already have in your closet is super helpful in adding interest and texture to any look. Denim vests and jackets are super on trend and make any basic look amazing. Add your fave lippie and look like the queen you are!   Shop our makeup here!      Sexy in stripes -  Stripes look just as sexy with heels as they do with tennis shoes, so add a striped dress to your closet that works just as well from 9-to-5 as it does on weekends. I mean above you can see that layering it is simple. So don't be afraid to use your stripes as your neutral.   Shop our t-shirt style dress here!

From left to right- the Bronze Highlighter is a great bronze color but has lots of shimmer to it! The Speckled Blush is insanely gorgeous in person! It's so vibrant and beautiful. It's pink, hot coral and a gorgeous lilac! The Speckled Highlighter is the perfect champagne palette. It's sophisticated, shimmery and beautiful! The Sky Highlighter stick is more of a lilac tinted highlighter that is super creamy and luscious. Our Translucent Powder is the best on the market. It's made from super clean ingredients and is amazing as an all over face powder after foundation. The bronzer Stick (far right) is a true bronzer. It's a gorgeous pigmented color that looks amazing on! And finally, our Pastel Highlighter. This may be a team favorite. Who doesn't want a rainbow highlighter?

Boutique ownership isn't simple but with these tips you will be on your way to owning your own boutique within months. Make sure you start your business the right way and with the processes that create a rhythm in your business. These 5 things you need to know before starting your boutique are key to success! So let's start with the boutique basics shall we?

How do I form my business? You'll want to first think about if you want to be a sole proprietor {a person who is the sole owner of a business, gets to keep all the profits after tax has been paid, but liable for all losses}. or if you want to incorporate {if you want your business organization to be seen as a separate legal entity under state law}. The next step would be to file for an EIN number - this protects your identity. You can apply for free HEREYou'll then want to contact your state to see what type of sales tax permit is required - or if at all. Here is a great resource regarding registering for a sales tax permit in every state - SOS here!  The next step you'll have to take is to apply for a business license. Each state, city, and county are different so be sure that you start at a state level, then county, then city. This article is a great resource to help you better understand this process. 
How do I get inventory? After you've formed your business it is time to start researching your wholesale options. You will use your state sales tax permit number to apply. There are many resources out there when it comes to wholesaling items in your boutique. You want to first be sure that the quality is there. Customers will not shop with you again if your products fall apart after first wear. So it is extra important to be sure that your research your vendors - make sure they have a great return and exchange policy, and that their customer service contact is easy to locate. You can first start local. See what vendors are in your area and see who would like to collaborate with you. Be sure that you have defined who your ideal customer is and don't be scared to poll them. The more information you have before purchasing your inventory the better. If you can't collaborate locally you'll want to find wholesale markets - a lot of cities do them. Here are a few of my favorite Markets: Westcoast Markets: Seattle, Las Vegas Middle America Markets: Dallas, Chicago East Coast Markets: Atlanta, New York                                                                                                                                                        
Budget, budget, budget! This is not everyone's favorite topic but it is definitely one of the most important. Having a clear budget when starting the business is going to keep you on track and out of the red. Plan your budgets for marketing, accounting, retail, and any other expense you'll have. You should be prepared to spend money but also protect it, as it is one of the most valuable resources you have. 
Stay organized! You'll want to be sure that you have an organized back end and office space. Not only will you be more productive but you will also keep yourself on task and on track. There are a ton of resources for you to start with and keep you organized. One of my FAVORITE planners is HERE- seriously though this planner saved my life! When it comes to social media you'll want to schedule your content ahead of time to help with time management. I suggest picking one day a week where you'll create the content {take photos} and then one day when you schedule the posts to your social media platforms. Schedule your posts easily with Cinchshare here! 
It's Tax Time - now what?! Keeping spreadsheets, using bookkeeping software etc. is KEY to a successful start-up. You need to know what your profits and loss are, and you definitely need to know what your quarterly taxes should be. Being sure that you have all of your business info ready, and that you can access it at anytime is super important.

Spring Spotlight: The Paisley Raye Lotus Dress

Today we wanted to share with you a big announcement about a piece of Paisley Raye clothing that is new to the shop!! This spring style gives us all the feels! It's always so exciting when we get a new shipment because we are still new to Paisley Raye! New shipments mean new exciting pieces we may not have seen in person before! It's so fun to open the boxes of new clothing together. We always talk about colors, prints, and our initial loves! 

The Lotus dress isn't really like any of the other dresses we have, and that is why we were so drawn to it! It has an amazing vintage flair and perfect retro fit. The high neck really makes this dress stand out. It's a mock turtleneck that is super flattering and helps show off A-Line shape of this dress. I mean who doesn't love a swing dress? So, what is a swing dress? A swing dress is all about the flowy dress with the perfect A-line shape and drape. Instead of the top part of the “A” shape hugging your waist, it will accentuate those curves and hug your chest and then the fabric will bell out below. This give the dress all the movement and so much potential - the dress will “swing” when you move and expecially when you dance! The sleeves have an amazing trumpet shape that are sooo feminine and beautiful!

Why Paisley Raye and who is Kayla?

Hello everyone! It has been a while since we did a check-in and really went over why this brand and stylist are so fabulous! I mean, although Kayla is a mother, forever student, wife, leader, sister, and friend she is also passionate about helping others find freedom through fashion. Paisley Raye has done that for many women all over the country so why not you? 

Kayla Hive.png

Kayla was the little girl with a free spirit that always fought for what was right. She could be found expressing herself through fashion, wild hair color, or anything artistic that helped her to stand out from the crowd. Deeply passionate about helping others Kayla decided to create a safe and comfortable space to nudge her customers out of their comfort zones. This is how Hive Beauty Box was born. Having battled body image issues for the better part of her life she knew there needed to be this space. A space to be yourself and find yourself through fashion. With over a decade of professional makeup artistry and personal styling experience Kayla is excited to bring these skills to you and your friends. She offers in person or online sessions so that you don't have to leave the comfort of your own home. We all know how scary it is sometimes going out of your comfort zone and trying a new style or just shopping in general. In studio sessions are also available. You can bring your friends and update your wardrobes together! How fun is that? 

Be sure to comment below with any questions you may have for Kayla and if you want to book a session click HERE - Happy styling!

Why do I love Direct Sales and having a team!?

As most of you know I have been with a company previous to Paisley Raye where I was also a leader of a large team. It was a lot of fun and very hard decision to move on and essentially start over. I knew I had to. When I no longer aligned with corporate and felt that I was constantly putting out fires instead of leading my team... it was time. I am a go with your gut kind of girl and when I make a decision I go ALL IN! I am not a person who dips her toe in to the water before jumping in. I am extremely passionate and connect deeply. This is both my strength and weakness, although as I grow older I know it as more often a strength. So, why direct sales? Watch the video below and scroll on... 

Paisley Raye has given me the opportunity to not only sell clothing again that I believe in {They are made in the USA and give back} - That's a big deal but not the only reason I chose them. The opportunity for growth and building something I am proud of all while helping others do the same. That is why I chose direct sales and I would again and again. The community and friendships I have gained through this adventure is nothing short of invaluable. I am so happy to be a Paisley Raye Stylist and humbled to be on this journey with such strong and amazing women. Let's do this beauties and blaze a trail of bravery along the way.
