3 Ways to Guide Your Self-Improvement

Aren't we always trying to improve ourselves? We always seem to have goals we are working towards to constantly be better. Maybe we want to eat better, get stronger by exercising more, have more patience with our kids or spouse, save more money, or whatever it is that will help us be better versions of ourselves. It is not always a straightforward task, and it definitely will not happen overnight. You have to devote your time and effort to changing habits or learning new ones if you truly want to achieve it and change your life for the better as a result. So I am sharing some ideas on how you can help yourself become the best version of you possible!

4 Things to Look Forward to This Spring

4 Things to Look Forward to This Spring
You might have started to notice that the evenings aren’t as dark as they were a couple of weeks ago. The combination of that, the sound of birds singing, the light behind the curtains that you notice during dinner…it means that spring is finally here! Winter and autumn are wonderful months – filled with color and the changing of the seasons, the excitement of the festive season and the anticipation of a brand new year that you can really make the most of. But after a time, the dark mornings, poor weather and freezing temperatures start to take their toll on our physical and mental health!

Pitch It Girl! Tips on How to Pitch a Brand From the Brand's Perspective

Tips on How to Pitch a Brand From the Brand's Perspective

I would never claim to be a big blogger, or even one with a large readership or following. But I have been around for almost 6 years and I've learned a few things along the way and had some amazing opportunities! I've been able to collaborate with numerous other bloggers and boutiques, Shopbop, thredUp, JORD, Daniel Wellington, Chadwicks of Boston, 4EurSole, ABEO Footwear, SheIn and I recently became an ambassador for Aventura this year. Over the years, I've had people ask me for advice on reaching out to brands and pitching them for collaborations. It really got me thinking, what do brands think when you reach out to them? What do they ignore versus what sparks their interest? I only know from my experience and compared to full-time bloggers, that is fairly limited. The best place to go for advice on pitching brands is directly to a brand! Hearing what brands want from their perspective can give you an inside look and help make your pitches and communication with brands even better! I reached out to a couple of companies I have been very fortunate to work with several times in the past and asked them to answer some questions about what they look for and some tips for bloggers looking to contact and pitch brands.
