What is your Instagram Handle?
What is your Website?
Why should people follow you? What do you Instagram About?
I am a self-proclaimed expert in finding affordable fashion and playing with makeup. I love doing the dirty work and finding the deals so that busy young women, like myself, don’t have to. My goal is for women to come to my Instagram page when looking for something to wear to an event or inspiration for a makeup look for their best friend’s wedding and everything in between. I keep things spunky and free and aspire to inspire.
How and When did you get started?
I began blogging about 2 years ago, in 2016, but really got serious about a year ago.
Where do you hope to be a year from now? What are some of your goals?
My goal a year from now is to continue inspiring my audience. I would love to release an ebook on my experiences and what my journey has looked like. I would love to create online webinars to help those that are thinking about starting a blog and encouraging those that need that extra push.
What types of collaborations do you typically do and how can someone who wants to connect, contact you?
Most of my collaborations consists of beauty and fashion brands. I also love to throw lifestyle into the bowl and mix it up. I only work with brands that I truly love and care to share with my audience. The best way to contact me is via email. I check every single email I receive.
What is some advice you would give for someone who is just starting?
The biggest piece of advice I can give to someone that is just starting is to please go easy on yourself. This space can create a lot of doubt and comparison but you started your blog for a reason, to share something you are passion about. Throw all of your energy into providing the needs of your audience. Work hard and when you think you’re giving it your all, give a little more.
How did you grow your Instagram account? Give us one tip that has helped you!
I noticed a time when I was so focused on trying to be different instead of just being myself that it was coming off as disingenuous. When I realized that I wanted to focus on showing the real me instead of focusing so hard on trying to set myself about, the growth began. I talked about real life, I posted photos that weren’t perfect, and I engaged with others. Show others love and they will show it back.
What are some of your favorite apps you use to spruce up your Instagram Account? (or) Your favorite apps to connect with other business or bloggers.
Some of my favorite apps for Instagram are UNUM to help me plan out my feed and see what it’s going to look like before posting a photo. I love Lightroom for editing any and all photos. A hidden gem is the app called retouch. I’ve been able to remove full buildings out of my photos with this app. It’s the easiest photoshop you’ll ever use.
