Let's face it, when our external world is chaotic, our internal world usually is too. There are never enough hours in the day to get everything done. Putting systems in place that alleviate stress while churning results is so important! Last week I seriously buckled down to get re-organized and boost my productivity once again and I want to share with you guys some of the ways I've taken my schedule back into my own hands!
Everybody says to "follow your passion" but is passion a concrete thing? Can millennials classify it as one thing.
I’d been working and gaining experience since I was 16 in a variety of different fields.
There was freelance photography, working on higher education political initiatives, marketing, but struggled to figure out my dream career when I came across a book called The Art of Work*.
While I didn’t know it at the time, it would prove to be the exact thing I needed to get me thinking how I would move forward in my life.
So lately I keep seeing this crazy trend about adult coloring books on-line and in major retailers like Urban Outfitters, Target, and Michael's. I kept thinking to myself, what the heck is the deal with adult coloring books? Then I started reading about all of the benefits of adult coloring books and became hooked when Bad Words Studios sent me one of theirs to try!
Seriously, my twenties have been a complete roller coaster of unforeseen changes and lessons, but I have absolutely loved it. I have graduated with both my Bachelors and Master's degrees, I have excelled in a career only to blow it up and start my own business, I met my fiancee and am getting married in a few months, and I have really learned just so much about myself as a person.
I get chronic tension headaches and oil diffusers have been one of the oil ways to cure them, and my old oil diffuser recently burned up and died (literally the thing was smoking and about to catch on fire!). What are the benefits of oil diffusers? Aside from clearing up my headaches they have also been shown to boost productivity and improve mood as well as these 5 main benefits:
How do you get your photos or graphics from your computer to your phone to upload them on Instagram? Today I wanted to share this Instagram tip with you. There are a lot of ways to get your photo from your computer to Instagram! Something to keep in mind, is ideally you wouldn't email it to yourself since you will lose some resolution this way and your photo could end up looking grainy. Keep in mind that each of these require a few steps, nothing will magically zap a photo to your Instagram (even apps that say they are integrated with Instagram and will "post to Instagram for you" still require you to go in and copy and push a button to get it onto Instagram at the time you want to post it due to Instagram's policies.) So how can you get your photos from your computer to Instagram?
Okay so I have been searching high and low for the ultimate social media scheduler solution. I've tried Buffer, I've tried Hootsuite, I've tried Drumup, and was about to try BoardBooster... when I stumbled across ViralTag.
The most common question I got was: "but how do I take Instagram worthy photos"? So this week I wanted to answer that question in detail with 3 tips for taking the perfect instagram photos.
TapaReef sent me their sunscreen face wipes to give an honest review. Originally I was going to write about these in a post where I showcased multiple "must haves" for summer, since I didn't expect to totally fall in love with them and was a little skeptical about how much I could actually write about sunscreen wipes... but after trying them I fell so in love, that they seriously deserve their own post!
Whether you want to be Instafamous or you are trying to grow your brand, you should be on Instagram over Facebook or Twitter. Why?
It's an all natural deodorant packed with essential oils and made with activated charcoal that claims to absorb wetness.
I was so excited when it arrived! I waited like a month, which I expected since I ordered it shortly after the Shark Tank craze and most products take a while after that.
I know Spring for most of the country just started, but Summer is fast approaching! Heck it already feels like it in South Florida at 90 degrees everyday with these sunny blue skies:
April is National Stress Awareness Month and this April seems more stressful than any April has before! Is anyone else experiencing drastic life changes lately? I feel like every week a different area of my life is being flipped upside down on it's head, and practicing stress reduction techniques are more important than ever for me!
I hate shopping. Seriously, I suck at it. I get totally overwhelmed and frustrated during the entire process. In high school, I would go to the mall every week with a few friends, where I would get lost and separated from the group. I have never understood how shopping was a group or partnered activity. You walk in, you scan the items, you try on, you buy and leave. My objective is to get in and out as fast as possible. I do not want the sales person to talk with me. I try not to make direct eye contact with anyone.
About a year ago I kept hearing these horror stories about women leaving their tampons in for way to long, only to need their leg amputated. I know the Tampon boxes warn against toxic shock syndrome, but I guess growing up I never believed it to be a real thing and would wear tampons throughout my entire period. Plus tampons have been catching a bad rep for having some harmful toxins in them. One day I cam across this Buzzfeed article where this chick tested out these period panties, Thinx. I remember being super skeptical, thinking "EW that is so weird!", followed by "there's no way that'll work!" My mind flashed back to a middle school nightmare my BFF had in math class where she got up to use the rest room and Aunt Flow had left a little gift on her chair in the front row, I clearly remember the boys next to me snickering, to this day my stomach churns with embarrassment for her. Needless to say after witnessing that experience, I have always been a little anxious anytime I was menstruating. Frequently taking trips to the bathroom to make sure everything was "okay", even asking my fiance to "Check my butt" when we are hiking.
