This summer was a bit rough for me. I took a break from social media, I had some personal things going on, and I felt totally uninspired. And out of all those things what impacted me the most was feeling uninspired.
As a blogger feeling inspired is kind of a big deal. When you’re inspired and passionate your audience will feel inspired and passionate and when you’re not, well, your blog and business will suffer. Continue Reading
A few weeks ago I had the honor of attending the world premiere of Mother! To be completely honest when I got the invite I thought they had me confused with someone else. They couldn’t possibly want me to cover an event in the same room with Jennifer Lawrence… Continue Reading
Ah, my latest and most fascinating obsession: aesthetic. Aesthetic is also known as your theme or “vibe”. It’s basically how you edit your photos and how it ties into the rest of your brand. Something that has honestly been on the back burner for me since I started blogging: aesthetic. Continue Reading
*The only show I attended this year was to support my good friend Gina and her line Trade by Gina La Morte – a socially conscious brand that helps prevent human trafficking and abuse.
To be completely honest New York Fashion Week stresses me the F out. There is so much pressure from a blogger standpoint to be at the forefront of all the shows, dressed to the nines, going to all the events, and networking the crap out of yourself, all while documenting the whole experience via social media.

What a random blog post right?! Well, over the past few weeks I’ve been sharing little mini-tutorials on Instastories from how to DIY a faux marble top flatlay to picking and editing your photos for blog posts and since you guys love them so much I want to start translating them onto the blog as opposed to having them disappear after 24 hours.

The other day I was talking to my smart, funny, charming, sweet, caring boyfriend Patricio and I was basically complaining about not having enough time to do things. Considering I preach just the opposite (you DO in fact have time to do things, you just choose not to do them), it goes to show we all have our off days. Anyway, I was saying how I’d love to learn graphic design, web design, and video editing sounds easy for some but I found it’s pretty time consuming and to do what I want to do would take years.

A few weeks ago we talked about the largely anticipated topic: the Instagram algorithm. And after requests from Kherington, Allison, Eden, and DeAnna, this week we’re going to talk about how “cheating” your way to the top on Instagram will hurt you and the bloggers around you. (By the way, I love requests so please keep ’em comin – nothing is off limits!) Continue Reading
I started NAB with the intention of creating an inclusive, super informative community of badass women and day by day we’re working together to make that happen. From the Not Another Blonde secret Facebook group to interviews like the one I’m about to share, this space is about YOU and bringing as much jam packed value to your life as possible.

Every blogger wants to know how to get brand collaborations. Even just seeing the word “collab”, bloggers freak out and can’t contain themselves. I get it. It’s exciting. It’s cool. It makes you feel important. But I want to stress that if you’re blogging just to get free stuff, you’re blogging for the wrong reason. Continue Reading
I’m sorry I have to be the one to tell you this but growing your brand on Instagram is a lot harder than it used to be. When Instagram first started you could literally post a picture with no caption, no hashtags, no location and get tons of likes and authentic comments. Continue Reading
