    Pinterest Marketing 2021 Update

    Pinterest can be your best friend when it comes to marketing your content as a blogger, youtuber, etc. Pinterest does one thing extremely well: change the algorithm. Boss Girl Bloggers, aka Ell, shared about the update here. I am still finding the most impression success using Story Pins. However, I do find some very slight success using video pins. I really started focusing on Pinterest in December because I had a 2 week break from school which to create a ton of content for Pinterest. My first week back to school left me more drained as I faced the hardest week of my teaching career to date. However, as you…

    Tuckernuck Sample Sale

    The Tuckernuck Sample Sale is online for the first time ever! Tuckernuck has a store in DC, which is where this sale is normally hosted. However, with COVID, they switched it to be all online. I am so glad to shop around the site. I love what Tuckernuck has to offer, but can’t afford a ton of it on a teacher’s budget (hello, Barbour). The sale is only 48 hours, January 6-7, so make sure to hop on and take a look around. Tuckernuck has also said they’ll be adding more pieces on the second day. They have it set up like a Lilly Pulitzer sale, where there is a…

    Shop Your Closet

    Shop your closet and create new outfits! Styling outfits is one of my favorite things to do. I love to find pieces that go together. I’ve been known to say “I like my money where I can see it-in my closet”. Which is great, except I also really like to save money. One thing I’ve gotten a lot better at this year is styling outfits from my closet. The idea behind these posts is that you can see what I would mix and match in my closet to make different outfits. I include prices in posts like these so that if you wanted to shop, you’re not blindsided when you…

    Amazon for Valentine’s Day

    Valentine’s Day is coming up! While I typically don’t do much for the holiday (I blame this on being single), I do like looking around and browsing for fun decorations and ways to celebrate! I will say I am usually quite the grinch about Valentine’s Day. Plus, I do love any excuse to shop! One of the usual perks of being a teacher is decorating for holidays. However, this year, I’m not planning on doing anything for Valentine’s. It’s hard to decorate with COVID, since soft surfaces can capture the germs. I’ve really tried to minimize the soft surfaces in my room this year. Likewise, I made this keeping in…

    Office Decor

    I love decorating office space. Honestly, I love decorating in general. However, there is something special about office supplies. I also love back to school shopping, so it’s probably that they’re similar if we’re being honest. As I keep moving toward buying my own house, I’ve started to think about what items I want to have in it. Thankfully, I’ll be done with grad school by the time I’ll purchase and finalize everything for a home. However, this is not stopping me from wanting a dedicated office space. Desk || L-shaped desk ($199)-This desk can be converted to have different shapes based on your space needs. White desk ($110)-love how…

    Influence

    Influence: (n) the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect itself. We’re used to looking at the word influence and influencer in the terms of social media. In fact, I asked my 5th grade class what it meant to influence someone or be an influencer they said: “to share ideas and thoughts on social media”. Not a bad definition for a 5th grader to come up. Who is an Influencer? Consequently, my first question back to them was “is it only on social media?”. This one was a little bit tougher for my kids. Keep in mind they idolize…

    Life Changing Apps

    Apps can be life changing. We often let our phones and technology take over our lives. However, instead of letting technology run us, we need to use it to our advantage.

    The Power of Manifesting

    The Power of Manifesting has been an interesting topic for me recently. The Secret is about manifestation. I read the book when I was younger. However, I definitely didn’t get much out of it. Okay, this is probably because when I say “read” I really mean barely skimmed. I always create goals at the start of each year. They’re kind of like my manifestations for the year. Manifestation is defined as “the action or fact showing from an abstract idea”. It’s also defined as “a version or incarnation of someone or something”. I’ve been listening to Tori DeSimone’s podcast and she talks a lot about the power of manifesting. However,…
