Thankfully, I started to come out of this annoying rut several weeks ago. Now my closet is starting to look
I'll start by telling you how it works. Love Struck is a virtual boutique on Facebook. Every Tuesday night, Erin holds an auction. She posts photos of the the items she is offering that week, and you (the customer) simply leave a comment that says 'sold!' when you see a product you want to buy. Pay via Paypal, and a few days later your purchase arrives in the mail (in a very elegant package!). Brilliant! We're all on Facebook all the time anyway, so it couldn't be more convenient. So far, I've scored these two adorable items ...

Another interesting part of the Love Struck story is the background on how it all got started. The idea came to Erin one Sunday evening after she heard about a similar business model. She got to work on her business plan the very next day.
"It was completely impulsive," Erin says. "And then boom, within six weeks it was up and running."
Wow! She had an idea, and she ran with it. I love that about her. And her concept is so creative, too. She spends much of her free time (when she's not working at her full-time digital marketing job or hanging out with her two cute kids) shopping for products at the Dallas Market Center and keeping up on all the latest trends. Her audience, she says, is the suburban mom who wants to be stylish without breaking the bank (that's me!). In other words, women just like her.
"I love love love to shop, but you will never see me spending $300 on a purse or a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes," she says.
Anyway, I could say lots more about Erin and Love Struck (she is truly so inspiring to me!) but I know you are all excited about the giveaway so I'll move on to that.
We are giving away a special treat from Love Struck to one reader of The Paleo Baby. Will it be a necklace? A scarf? Something else? Only Erin knows, but I promise it will be fabulous. All you have to do is leave a comment here and like Love Struck and The Paleo Baby on Facebook. The deadline to enter is Wednesday (December 12th) at 6pm Pacific Time, so don't delay. I will announce the winner on Facebook on Wednesday night.
Also, be sure to check out this week's Love Struck auction, which starts at 6:30pm Central Time tomorrow night (did I mention she's in Texas?). It's a Secret Santa theme!!
