Oh friends, can you feel the warmth of spring busting through the dreary clouds! It’s gonna be a brighter day!

#BloggerLife: Content Planning and Consistency can save ya life!

On this weekend’s #Bloggerlifechat (hosted on my instastory, every Saturday – follow me) I discussed the importance of planning your social media/blog content and staying consistent. It’s really important to keep giving the people what they want and doing it on a consistent basis. And, since it’s the beginning of the month, it’s a perfect time to plan your content for the month. Publishing content for the sake of publishing content is useless – but publishing with a purpose is the key to success and sanity.

Below, are some notes from Saturday’s chat. Do you plan your content every month? Has it helped you? Let’s discuss!

MY STYLE: Spring trends, winter style

This week has been one of the coldest in recorded history. It’s hard to fathom that spring is around the corner. If you are like me, when I shop, i want to wear my clothes immediately.

STYLE: Too old for the trends?

How do you do fellow kids?!” LOL! Do you ever feel weird when you see a style or trend that some would call ‘young’?

Lets talk about aging and getting dressed. As a woman past 30, I’m always conflicted about dressing ‘my age’. I’ve always skewed young, most people pointing out that I don’t look my age. Even when I was in my 20’s my face has read younger. Also, I’ve always worked in youth development, so it makes sense for me to be up with the young people. From music to fashion, I love being on the cusp of the ‘come up’! Continue reading “STYLE: Too old for the trends?”

Shout out to the team at Jessica London for sponsoring my ‘back to work’ look! My previous job was in the non-profit world – very laid back and very casual. Seriously, if I wore heels to work, it was a big deal. Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE some casual looks. But I love being able to add a bit of flare too. Now, working at college, I feel the need to step up my game. Students come to me for guidance and I hope I can stylishly lead them.

#BLOGGERLIFE: It’s Time to Recycle … those old posts!

In this week’s #Bloggerlife post, we’ll discuss recycling content. As online influencers it’s easy to get stressed about creating new and amazing content. All the ‘gurus’ tell you to have the best photos, the most amazing and engaging captions, and a blogpost with the perfect keywords for SEO optimization. While those are true, sometimes you’ll post and not get the views your content deserves. That’s when it’s time to recycle!
