Hey everyone,

It's Monday, Labor Day, and I have the day off but all my friends are working so I'm chilling at home with nothing to do. However, I gotta go to the mall as it's my boyfriend's birthday tomorrow and I still haven't gotten him anything.

I don't want to go to the mall though because I am severely wanting to buy some things for myself and I know I don't have the money. My willpower is so horrible when I'm alone. Lol. I need a bodyguard to guard me from spending on myself.

I've been pondering a part-time job to supplement my income at my regular job (just isn't enough with my dang bills!) but have been unable to find anything that offers nights/weekends, everything I've found part time want early morning shifts or overnight and I just can't do that with my full time job. So! I've been looking into sales stuff like being a rep for Lia Sophia jewelry. Does anyone know this brand? There was a rep. at my work last Christmas and I got a couple things from them that I still really like and when I went to Shecky's Girls Night Out in Boston they had a table set up there and me and my friend Jess decided to host a party (Sep. 18, Salem MA [send me a comment if you're interested in coming, the more the merrier]). So, I've been talking to the two reps who are involved in helping me set up the party and being a rep. sounds like a pretty good deal. You pay $150 for a start-up kit that includes like $1000 worth of jewelry (you keep this no matter what) and you decide how many hours each month you will give towards having parties, etc. The reps also said Lia Sophia sends them free stuff now and again and you get a percentage of what's earned at each party you throw. I really like the idea of setting my own hours for a part-time job, I love jewelry, and I think it would be cool to be able to make money just looking at jewelry with a bunch of ladies, lol.

What do you all think of that? Anyone else do that kind of sales work? I know Avon Mark or whatever does a similar thing but I don't know much about that (though I do like the idea of being able to sell makeup & accessories rather than just jewelry).

If any of you are located in MA and interested in meeting sometime shoot me a line. Gawd, that sounds so pathetic. LOL! I went away to school from high-school to college so I don't have that many girl friends around in MA so wouldn't mind a new shopping partner or something.

Good luck on your second/part-time job search! Bills are so draining! I've never been in sales so I can't say much, I would shop with you if I was in MA but I'm in CA. lol
