Day 7 – Become a Buskins Affiliate

Today is the last day of my Buskins launch week. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading all my posts and are as excited as I am about leggings. This was a lot of work, but I really enjoyed planning this week for you. Next week, you can look forward to regular mommy blogging at Jenny Wears Glasses. 😉

 

For my last day, I want to encourage you to sell Buskins leggings too. Have you ever thought that selling leggings might be a great way to make some extra cash, wine money or help you save up for that trip to Mexico next year? There are no quotas or sales that you must make and it’s only $26 to start and that includes a pair of leggings.

 

What’s in it for you?

  • 25% lifetime discount
  • 25% commission on sales
  • Get paid every Friday through PayPal

 

Bonus

  • No quotas to reach
  • No monthly fees
  • Keep stock on hand or sell completely online

 

You can sell as much or as little as you would like. Personally, I really like the leggings, so it’s easy for me to encourage you to buy them too.

Day 6 – Show off your personality

Today is the second last day of my Buskins leggings launch. Today, we take a closer look at the patterns on the Buskins website and how patterned leggings can really show off your personality.
Do any of these leggings scream “YOU”?
5 personality leggings
  1. I’m just one of the boys in Cover Me Leggings ($28)
  2. I sleep with my smart phone in Text Talk Leggings ($28)
  3. I see the world from a different angle in Kaleidoscope Leggings ($23)
  4. I wear my heart on my sleeve pants in Candy Hearts Leggings ($23)
  5. An American at heart in Patriot Leggings ($23)
Not only can these leggings can show off your personality, but a lovely scent for your home can as well.
Scentsy is a company that sells scented wax and warmers for your home. They have so many different kinds of scents available that it would be almost impossible to not find something that would scream “YOU”. Here are some examples:
  1. I like to spend my summers by the campfire. Try Bonfire Beach.
  2. My idea of a dream vacation is spending it by the beach. Try By The Sea.
  3. I fall in love with flowers all over again when I buy fresh flowers from the market. Try Lilacs and Violets.
Today’s giveaway is all about your personality.
Prize: By The Sea Scentsy scent bar.

Day 5 – It’s all about leggings!

Happy ‘hump’ day. Today we want to celebrate all things leggings. Videos featuring leggings, celebrities wearing leggings, how you organize your leggings in your closet, memes featuring leggings, legging style, how to wash your leggings, you wearing leggings… everyone wearing leggings.
To start, I love me some gooood leggings featured in a music video. Although not a perfect match, you might be able to spot these two styles of leggings in Justin Bieber’s Sorry music video:
sorry leggings

Celebrities love patterned leggings too! Here’s a picture of Fergie wearing a pair.

Day 4 – Baby Legs

baby leggings

Today is Day 4 of my Buskins launch. Today, we’re talking about baby leggings. Did you know that Buskins has baby leggings that are made of 80% cotton, 15% polyester and 5% spandex. They’re very stylish too.

Baby leggings would make a great gift for:
  • A newborn;
  • A toddler who loves to dance; or
  • A pet snack that likes to get fancy.

Not only would these leggings make a great gift, but a custom onesie would make this even better. In Constance Bay, Ontario, we have a seller (Plaid Acorn Designs) that does custom onesies and gifts.

Today, it’s about feeling good.

Day 2 – Accessories

set of 3

Welcome to Day 2 of my Buskins launch. Today, we’re taking a look at accessories that you can match with Buskins leggings. Buskins leggings come in a variety of colours and patterns. Sometimes the most outrageous pattern could use a very simple accessory to help tone it down.

For the solid colour leggings, sometimes we need to add a bit more oomph to give the look a little sometime extra. You can achieve this by adding a necklace, scarf or blazer to your look.

I live in a small town, just outside of Ottawa and we have an Etsy store owner that lives just minutes from me. She owns a shop called Once Upon An Extra Stitch. She sells scarfs/cowls, accessories, coffee cozies and patterns.
For our next giveaway, we’re giving away one patterned scarf from Once Upon An Extra Stitch.

Day 1 – Welcome to my Buskins launch

11010971_10153223197350041_4202672255780593722_n
It’s my Buskins affiliate launch week!
Welcome to my little side business! I’m happy to announce that I’m an affiliate for this company. I love their leggings and joggers so much. As I mentioned before, I find it extremely hard right now to go shopping with our little Katie. She hates the car seat* so much. Just this week, I tried to go shopping with her and had to stop multiple times, because she was screaming so hard.
Buskins leggings are extremely soft and the designs are very stylish. Just because they have a funky pattern doesn’t mean that they are impossible to match tops with. I hope that in the next couple of weeks, I’ll help you find stylish ways to wear patterned leggings so that you can wear them to work and on the weekend.
Today I’m excited to share my new venture with you and hope you find these leggings as fun as I do.
If you decide to order, please use my affiliate link and add my name or “Jenny Wears Buskins” as the affiliate referred. If you have any questions, please refer to my FAQ post.
To get this party started, I’d like to do my first giveaway.
Prize: $10 Buskins Leggings Gift Card
To win this prize, you must suggest something I should blog about? It doesn’t have to be about leggings or #momlife, it just needs to be something that you would be interested to have me write about.
To be entered in the draw, you must:
  • Like the Jenny Wears Glasses Facebook page
  • Like and share this blog post
  • Add your comment on Jenny Wears Glasses blog post or on Jenny Wears Glasses Facebook post
Please feel free to suggest as many ideas, only one entry per person.
Don’t live in Ottawa, no problem. This prize will be delivered via email.
All entries must be received by 6:30pm on Saturday, March 12. The winner of the draw will be announce on my Facebook page and blog before 8:00pm (because I’m going to bed shortly after that time).
Good luck!

* Go ahead, rub it in. Your kid probably loved the car seat. Even slept in it in the house. I’ve heard of these babies. Lucky you.
