Personal Shopper Say What?

home for the next few days--our bedroom view at talking stick resort 

Just popping in from Arizona (it's like 6 am here don't worry. We are the girls who were in bed by 9:30 pm  on our first night of vacation. PARRRRRTAY ANIMALS I TELL YOU.) Anyhow, because I have major plans of hitting up some coffee garden (I'm so intrigued to see if flowers will magically pop out of my latte) and the Wheel of Fortune slot machines, I must go. Instead of just leaving you hanging, I have somebody who I've grown to love for you. And she has something for you. Basically we are all just throwing ourselves at you. Enjoy getting to know Jennifer and her kick ____ shopping program that you can take part in. It's an awesome concept and I am so excited for what Jennifer can do for you! Happy Thursday y'all. 

ps. thanks for getting that little number over on the side to over 5,000. I remember having dreams of reaching 200. I also remember my husband promised me a new camera for 200. Because of that, I just made the executive decision that 5,000 calls for a massage. 9:00 am appointment, here I come. Thank you though seriously..you make my heart burst. 


Hey Living in Yellow Readers! 

I’m Jenny Sanzo: wife, mama, blogger, and lover of shoes. I write The Flower City Fashionista blog and its local Rochester, New York counterpart Flower City Fashion and Beauty.  Sometimes I enjoy a mango martini...

I am so excited to be taking over Erin’s blog today! I’ve been a loyal LIY reader for quite some time.  Even though we've never met, I know that Erin is a girl after my own heart:  funny, kind, a great sense of style, not to mention that we share an appreciation for a good sale and a cute pair of shoes (namely Target wedges).  I admire her entrepreneurial spirit and tenacity.  Girlfriend is a hard worker.  She has built an empire and God knows it wasn't easy.  I'm in awe of the consistency, enthusiasm, and genuine spirit that she brings to this space every day.  Erin is the real deal.

I'm sure you can imagine how thrilled I was when she offered her space for me to share my latest business venture with you.   

I’m a personal shopper and stylist, and I hate to name drop, buuuuuut Erin Schrader (Miss Living in Yellow herself, blogolebrity, and BFF to Guiliana Rancic) is one of my clients and YOU can be too.   Did I mention that my services are FREE?  As in they don’t cost you a dime? Not even a penny?  I kid you not.  It's the greatest job on earth.


In the words of Ricky Ricardo: “Let me ‘splain.”

I am piloting a concierge personal shopping program for Sears/Kmart/LandsEnd.  As a Concierge Personal Shopper, I use shopyourway.com, a social platform for the rapidly growing Sears Shop Your Way loyalty program to create catalogs, recommend products, and share exclusive sales and discounts with my clients. I help people shop for anything from skinny jeans, to patio furniture, to a new dishwasher or mascara. And even though I make additional commission on purchases from SHC brands (Kmart, Sears, LandsEnd, MyGofer etc) I can input products from ANYWHERE on the web. Let’s say my client is looking for brown riding boots: I'll find her options from Sears, but I'll also add cute pairs from DSW, Nine West, Zappos etc.  I love that customer satisfaction and providing quality service are the top priorities of this company.

So, if you ever wished you could have your own personal shopper and stylist but never thought you could afford it, your wishing days are over.  I'm here and I'd love to help you shop!  Here is what the catalog view in my online storefront looks like:

Just a few examples of the catalogs I've created...
As your personal shopper you can contact me to help you with any of your shopping or styling needs.  Looking for shoes to wear to your sisters wedding? Done!  No time to price compare flat screen tvs? I’m on it. New vacuum in your future? Got it. Want to throw out everything in your closet and start over? Let’s do it! I’ll tell if you those pants are going to make your butt look big...I promise!  The possibilities are endless - and you get all of these services for FREE.  

Sears created this platform as an alternative approach to marketing.  Corporate would rather pay real people instead of blowing millions on advertising campaigns.   I love that I found my dream job and I don’t have to charge for it. Sears writes my paycheck, not you. Does it get any better than this? I think not. I mean, who wouldn't want a FREE personal shopper to save them time and money? Especially one who is a fellow blogger and LIY lover? I mean come on, this is a win-win. 

Yup...that's me!  And that's a five star rating kiddos!  You'll be in good hands.
Because I’m so excited about my new business, I am giving away a $25 Sears/Kmart gift card to one lucky LIY reader. To enter, simply sign up for my personal shopper services and leave a comment below telling me that you did.  Easy. As. Pie.

  8. Hi! I've been reading your blog for awhile now and love it! Anyways, I live in AZ and my husband and I go to Talking Stick pretty regularly for date night and some good food and gambling! It's fun :) They have new Deal or No Deal slot machines that are pretty addicting :)

    Also, if you guys feels like venturing out for the day there is lots to do in Old Town Scottsdale (restaurant-wise) and a huge mall (Scottsdale Fashion Square) right by there and a Sprinkles Cupcakes (if you've never been...GO! Seriously!) across the street from the mall (NE corner of Scottsdale and Camelback Rd).

    Anyways hope you have fun!! :)

  9. One word. AWESOME. I totally love that personal shopper concept. I've always wished I could have someone shop for me for things within my budget with a better fashion sense then me.

    Hope you are having a blast in AZ!

  18. I was in AZ last week, and I also crashed by 9:30 and was up and at em by 5:30/6 am every single day. Why I can't wake up naturally perky that early in Central Time is a conundrum that I'd pay good money to solve...have a fun trip!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
