If you have a busy day ahead of you, it’s smart to prepare thoroughly beforehand. This allows the day to run smoothly, while you remain feeling comfortable and completely confident. To slay the day, there are a few things you can do before you leave the house (and afterward too). Let’s take an in-depth look at what they are so you can begin 2018 the right way while stepping closer towards your goals!
Marketing is one of those key concepts to understand if you own any kind of business, including a blog. It is an essential component to growth and success. IMC is probably the most powerful marketing concepts to utilize. If you are unfamiliar with IMC (Integrated Marketing Communications), in 1989 the American Association of Advertising Agencies defined it as, “an approach to achieving objectives of a marketing campaign, through a well-coordinated use of different promotional methods intended to reinforce each other.” That’s a wordy explanation of a simple concept – to bring together all of your advertising, marketing, PR, promotions, branding and to work towards a common goal at the same time.
A full IMC campaign is expensive. If you think of companies who already work hard on this type of media attack, the real IMC masters, what comes to mind first are big brands such as Coca-cola, McDonald’s, and Nike. However, even if you don’t have the bank accounts or budget as these big brands, you can still benefit from the principle behind this particular communications technique. Start small and understand you won’t see your dream results overnight. It takes time, dedication, energy, and resources. Putting together a fully integrated marketing plan is a BIG task, but well worth it. Keep reading.
Hi beauties! 2018 is already off to a glowing start. If you follow along on Instagram, you know I am not one to take a selfie or to wear a bunch of makeup. But a good highlighter is my kryptonite. I am all for that extra dewy skin glow.
I was even more shocked as to where I found my new favorite highlighter. It’s not from a brand or palette you’d ever expect! It’s actually a drugstore brand and is super affordable. Want to know what it is?
Hi my loves! I hope you all are having a wonderful start to a New Year. I know this is the time many are ambitiously working on new goals. As a kid, I would dread January. But as an adult, I’ve grown to love how this month feels like a fresh start. Last night, I was thinking about the goals and dreams I have for 2018. The biggest point that stood out was, how important it is to invest in one’s self.
So what does that mean?
After devouring everything but the kitchen sink in November and December, many may turn to cleanses to jump-start their new health routine. If you are looking for the perfect cleanse, here are my top favorites that can either be ordered online, made yourself, or bought in stores.
I personally have seen a huge change in my eating habits once following a cleanse. The few days of detoxing really shifts the way I saw food and how important it is to cut the junk. I also have had great success in jump-starting weight loss after a cleanse. Not to mention, my skin was glowing from all the key nutrients and hydration I was missing out on prior. So yes, these cleanses may be challenging at first, but all the healthy benefits make up for it.
Modern design trends are always changing. It’s an industry that thrives on creative designs but it’s also spurred by past designs as well. Much like any creative industry, bringing back the past and revitalizing old ideas with a fresh coat of paint can really make a difference and kick off a completely new trend. To get you started in the New Year, we’ve put together a couple of interior design ideas that will freshen your home for 2018.
I don’t know about you but the holiday stress did a number on my skin. Between all the good food, the change in weather, the pressure to get things done before the new year left my skin looking pretty rough. The one saver that helped with breakouts were these incredible Might Patches by Hero Cosmetics. I’ve been using these since Thanksgiving and I am completely hooked! So if clear, glowing skin is one of your New Year’s resolutions, then keep reading!
Every girl knows the secret to feeling great is looking great. It is one of the oldest tricks in the book. It is that notion of pulling clothes out of your closet, trying on different shoes with different bags, putting your face on and then standing in front of the mirror to find out you look a million bucks and thus feel a million bucks. It’s that small pleasure in life that fills us with the kind of self-confidence and body-bravado that gives us an extra springy step when we walk.
But what if there was fashion out there that went one step further. Fashion that made us feel intrinsically awesome for a whole bunch of other reasons. What if there was fashion out there that just kept on giving, that had a cause, that made your money have more purpose than filling your closet.
