Stella in the Sun


(Caitlin) I signed up to be a Stella & Dot stylist a little over two years ago for the discount but quickly learned that I could actually turn this into my own business. Long story short, I now have an incredible team of women, the best clients and hostesses, and received an invite to the exclusive leadership retreat in Tucson, AZ!

I got in to the Hilton late Monday night with just enough time to grab a glass of champagne with my amazing mentor, Erin Reckner.


The first day started with some incredible swag from the newest collection and a gorgeous picnic outside in the sun! Delicious food and celebrating everyones accomplishments from 2016 with a view.


That afternoon we had workshops and small group sessions to plan for the best year yet. I was surprised when I was called on stage and given $100 in singles for growing my team.


That night we caught the sun setting over the mountains. The scenery definitely made me miss California! Then we headed out for a team dinner at Wildflower.


The following morning we were up bright and early with coffee in hand. We were greeted with gifts as soon as we walked in to our first session. They definitely know how to spoil us!



After another gorgeous lunch on the lawn, we headed to our afternoon sessions outside in the shade. This view is a lot different from my old conference room meetings!


On the way to the closing reception, my teammate Trista and I had to stop and get our picture taken. We're printing it for motivation to earn an all inclusive trip to Mexico!


We ended our amazing leadership retreat with a giant party outside under the stars. There was a lip sync battle, tons of dancing, and mingling with more inspiring women.


Until next time!
