So recently something really exciting has happened in my life! I have become a distributor for juice plus. 

The products...

Before beginning my business adventure I found that a lot of people were very skeptical about the company and their products, however many of these people actually had no idea of the products that the juice plus franchise actually sells (myself included)! Of course, a lot of people think that we actually distribute juices. This is NOT the case. There are 2 main products - complete shakes and our fruit, veg and berry capsules. Mainly, I would say that the majority of our customers drink our shakes as meal replacements to aid weight loss, yet they are amazing just to boost your overall health and nutrition. Our shakes contain only plant-based protein unlike a lot of other "health" or "weight-loss" companies who use whey protein. With whey protein there is always the risk of it causing internal inflammation which can then lead to other serious illnesses. The shakes are perfect for everybody, whether you are constantly on the go or even if you work at home as they contain all the necessary vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and carbohydrates that your body needs. When taken to promote weightless, it is usually recommended you drink two shakes a day (breakfast and lunch) with 2 snacks in-between and an evening meal. Alongside the shakes, I personally offer a meal plan with ideas for snacks, a detox plan (whilst waiting for your package to be delivered), healthy recipes for your evening meal and an exercise plan. 

In regards to the juice plus capsules, there are 3 types - the berry blend, the fruit blend and the vegetable blend. All three of these work AMAZING together and maximum results will be seen when using these capsules as a trio, although they can be taken separately too. The idea of these products is to feed your body with all the important ingredients from your five a day. It is a known fact that most people do not get their five a day EVERY day so to make up for it these capsules provide us with the good stuff from 27 fruits and vegetables! As a result, this leads to better skin, hair, nails and energy levels (plus much more). Many testimonials show that these capsules are perfect for treating conditions such as acne and eczema. I have also read a lot of articles where people have said juice plus capsules have changed their life by improving their symptoms of illnesses such as epilepsy, diabetes, depression, anxiety and even heart conditions. Below is a picture of the juice plus complete and the capsules (these capsules also come in a soft chewable version for children) .

Now to the business side of things...

I only actually joined the juice plus business around 10 days ago and was really nervous about how I would be able to distribute the products. However, I have found that you get out of the business what you put into it! If you set yourself a target and ask a specific amount of people each day, it is more than likely that at least one person would be interested in the product and want to buy it! So far I have  been really happy with the amount of product i have been able to sell, but it is important that you don't expect too much too soon. After all my hard work hopefully at the end of July I should be getting my first promotion. The great thing about the juice plus company is that with every product you sell, you get 10% commission and then you also receive a certain amount of points (depending on the package/product) which go towards your promotion. Juice plus offer fantastic bonuses for those who receive promotions. If you do it right, it is a very easy and quick way to earn money. When being a distributor, another important aim is getting people to join your team as you earn commission and points of what they sell and what the people THEY recruit sell too! It is such an exciting business to be a part of. For me, at the moment this is something which I do alongside of a part-time job and studying (I will hopefully be going to uni in September) but for a lot of people they have managed to turn this into a full-time business run from their home. NO boss, NO greif. 

When joining the company I searched and searched the internet in hope of finding a blogger who had blogger their experiences not only trying the products, but also with the business as well but could not find anything! Therefore, I have decided to do weekly updates about my juice plus experience. Starting from today, I am drinking the shakes every morning for my breakfast and every day for my lunch alongside a healthy dinner in the evenings. I am also going to be taking 2 of each capsule each day. 

My aim is to be posting every Sunday about the products and how they have effected me during the week - weight loss, skin condition, energy levels, hair condition, health, etc. I will also be briefly explaining how the business side of things is going for me so please join me on my juice plus adventure!!

For me, this month has been extra special as it has been my 18th birthday so i decided that this is the perfect time for me to publish my first blog post - a may favourites mixed with a what i got for my birthday! No bragging, I just personally find posts like this interesting. Here I am going to show you my favourite presents and other things I have been loving this month. Enjoy! xox

1) Pandora essence collection bracelet
First of all, it is safe to say that this bracelet has definitely been my favourite birthday present this year, if not of all time. What I love about present's like this is that they are not things I would go and buy myself as I love to spend my money on everyday items such as makeup, food and clothes. This bracelet is from the new Pandora 'essence' collection, and unlike the 'moments' collection there is only a small selection of charms, all of which have separate meanings. As soon as I discovered this collection I fell in love. The bracelets are made beautifully and are especially dainty and elegant, whereas the charms add that special, personal touch. With my bracelet, I chose the 'gemini' charm, the 'belief' charm and the 'positivity' charm, all of which are important to me. They inspire me to stay true to myself, remain positive and of course reflect my gemini ways. This collection is such a meaningful present idea. 

2) Olivia Burton watch
In the past, watches have never really been something that I have been interested in. However, after scrolling through Instagram and noticing the Olivia Burton watches, I changed my mind. These watches in my opinion, are the perfect first watch for a girl/young woman. They are rather simply designed, but are classy and feminine. As it was my 18th, and I am now a 'young woman' I decided it was finally time to get a watch and not have to spend ages searching through my bag for my phone every time i wanted to know the time. I got this watch as a present off my grandma for my birthday, and know that I will get so much use of it. I chose the black leather as I thought it would be easiest to match with outfits. Love it!

3) St Tropez everyday lotion - face and body
After having a spray tan for my birthday celebrations, I realised how much I loved feeling brown, and how confident I felt with a tan. The spray tan i had was the original St Tropez, and i wanted to find my own self tan I was able to use at home which gave the same effect. With a boots gift card I got for my birthday, i scoured the St Tropez shelf trying to decide which tan to buy. In the end, I decided to go for the everyday lotion. This is a tinted moisturiser, which after being applied for a few days, gives you a natural, streak free tan. The first day I applied this tan, I used my hands and  was really disappointed as it came out very patchy. However, I have now started to use a fake tan mitt and the results are perfect! I have this tan in the shade medium/dark and I am already very brown after only using it for a few days. This is my favourite tanning product of all time - there is even a version for the face!

4) Michael kors bag
Up until my birthday my go-to everyday bag was a big, black Vivienne Westwood bag (I can't find the name). However, after wearing it practically every day for the past year, I was getting really bored of it and felt I needed a change. Luckily, for my birthday my mum got me a new bag! It is the Michael Kors Cindy in Saffiano leather. Personally, I have never been a fan of Michael Kors bags, as I have thought that they look quite cheap and of course, practically everybody has one. But I LOVE this one!! I think what is different about this bag is the fact that it is quite simple and structured unlike a lot of other Michael Kors bags which I would refer to as 'flimsy'. I can really see myself using this for a while.

5) yankee candle - sugared apple
All I can say about this candle is that i LOVE  it!! I originally bought it around christmas time and decided to use it for the first time the other night. I am ADDICTED. Unfortunately, I am terrible at describing smells. All I can say is that it is super sweet, and the name of it describes it perfectly! I love lighting up this candle before I go to sleep to help me relax.

6) Geordie Shore
Although Geordie Shore has been around for YEARS, I am loving this season! I think its great to see that they have all grown up and got to a positive stage in their lives. I think that Holly and Kyle are amazing together and Charlotte never fails to make me laugh. I even love the two newbies. Chloe is so funny and Nathan is just something else! I would definitely recommend watching this

7) muller light goodies lemon meringue yogurts
I HAVE NO WORDS. THESR ARE AMAZING!!!! they are soooooooooo yummy.

8) GHD eclipse
After owning my old GHD's for almost 7 years, you could say that it was finally time for a new pair! I was in dying need of new hair straighteners as in 3 months I will be moving away for Uni, and up until recently i shared my hair straightener's with my mum. Anyway, I had been eyeing up the GHD eclipse for some time, and much to my surprise, my mum got me them for my birthday. I LOVE these! my hair looks so smooth after using them and takes me half of the time to get a better effect. If anybody is feeling like upgrading their straighteners soon, these are a must. 

Thank you for reading my first blog post!! I hope this has interested you. Feel free to comment and let me know of any tips or advise on how to improve. Thank you xx
