How to have a successful closet sale #makeitreign

This post is sponsored by USA Network but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Hello, my Littlefinders! I’ve gotten a lot of questions about how I keep my wardrobe fresh without breaking the bank. My secret? I often have closet sales that allow me to get rid of things I no longer wear and be able to buy new ones. Call it my side hustle, my entrepreneur self or just me slaying it in the fashion department. Let’s #MakeItReign


Why I do it?

Clothes help me express myself. Every season I find inspiration from magazines, Pinterest, and even TV characters. This season I am obsessed with Teresa Mendoza’s style. She’s the main character from USA’s Queen Of The South and she’s goals! From her clothes to her strong attitude she’s a total #girlboss. I have been binging in season one and two on Netflix, in anticipation of season 3 premiering Thursday, June 21st. I noticed I didn’t have many clothes that help me bring out my inner Teresa, so it’s time for a closet sale!

How I do it?

Get out your notebooks because here’s everything you need to know how to be successful.

  • No attachments: Go through your closet and if you have not worn something in 3 months it’s time to say bye-bye. (keep in mind I don’t get rid of staple pieces or higher end items, but if you are ready for any of them to go, do it!)


  • Post on your social media that you are doing a closet sale and whoever is interested add them to a private group (creating a group on Facebook or Instagram is the best way to go so you don’t spam the people that are not interested)


  • Once everyone has answered you, it’s time to add them to the group and post photos of your items. I only post one photo and let people know they can get more photos upon request.


  • State the rules, whoever comments SOLD first gets the item. Must pay with Cashpp, Venmo or Paypal within 24 hours of purchasing the item. No returns. I usually do a flat rate shipping, but if people want to meet me somewhere near my house we can do that too.


  • Price things reasonably, my rule is 25% to 50% of what I paid for the item. During my last sale, I made over $300 on stuff that was just sitting in my closet!

Guess what? You now have money to spend on new clothes! Find your inspiration and let’s go shopping!


I can’t wait to see what Teresa Mendoza wears during season 3 of Queen of the South premiering Thursday, June 21st!  The season will then air each week on Thursdays at 9/8c! She has seized the throne of her own empire now, so I am sure her style is going to be to die for. In the meantime get your fix by Catching up on Season 1 and 2 of Queen of the South on Netflix!

Until Next Time LittleFinders!




My Best Summer Yet

Hello, my #Littlefinders. I hope everyone is ready to conquer the month of June. I am declaring summer to be Laila time! AKA I am planning to be the best version of myself. This means good sleep, workouts, prepping lunch, kicking butt at work and tackling all the chores I been wanting to do at home. This can mean running around all day non-stop leaving me feeling anything less than fresh. Luckily Summer’s Eve® is coming to the rescue.

Like many of you, I love going to Target and browsing for new products. While looking around I noticed Summer’s Eve® has a new scent of Feminine Cleansing Wash and a 16-count Cloth pack. Blissful Escape™. Just the name makes me feel refreshed.

The Blissful Escape™ scent is available in a 15oz Feminine Cleansing Wash and a 16-count Cloth pack. I love both of them for different reasons. The cleansing wash removes odor, bacteria, helps maintain a natural PH and it’s scent is clinically tested, so I know I am using a product that is not harmful to me. It’s perfect for morning or nighttime showers.

The Blissful Escape™ 16-count Cloth pack is great to carry with me to the gym, work and other places. I can always have them with me, knowing I can refresh whenever I need to.  Keep some in your locker, your bag, your car and anywhere you need it. (Make sure they are at room temperature)

Summer’s Eve® already had so many great scents, but Blissful Eescape™ has to be my favorite yet. It includes a mix of natural berry notes, including top fragrance notes of orange, green, cranberry, and banana. Middle notes are mango, jasmine, pineapple, rose, and base notes are peach, coconut, and apple.

Feeling fresh means feeling confident. Life gets busy and you want to make sure you are taking care of yourself in all aspects. As if I had to convince you any further, Target is offering 20% off with Cartwheel, available through June 30, 2018, so not only will you be able to buy the product but save some money while you do so!

I am so excited to share Summer’s Eve® Blissful Escape™ products with you and I hope you give it a try. I hope you make June your best month yet. Like always let me know what you think in the comments. Until next time Littlefinders!
