Finally found super comfortable jeans that are available in “Tall” with a high waist. Since I’m almost 5’11 on a good day it’s hard to find denim that goes below my ankle. I live for Zara, but for some reason most of their pants and jeans are super cropped. I do love a good crop but most of the time I just want comfortable denim made for tall women. Plus, these jeans have a cool lace-up look. Love! I’m obsessing over Topshop at the moment because their jeans + pants are available in “Tall” “Regular” and “Petite”. They also have really cool vinyl pants from time to time. I change up this look with high heel boots or with Vans sneakers for a more sporty/casual look. Jeans from Topshop also available at Nordstrom.com, Sunglasses from Nordstrom.com, Sneakers from Vans.com or Nordstrom.com Backpack + T-Shirt from Zara.com
I wanted to do a guest post with a person, client, brand, and company that I personally love! For those of you who love beauty like I do this post is for you. If you want stunning glam lashes D’Lashes by Dionne Phillips has the best lash extensions and lash products. Dionne is the top beauty influencer and does the best A-List Lash Extensions….ever! She’s also an awesome person and we both share a love of fashion, beauty, similar style of blogging, and scary movies. (Check her V-Day Products Blog Post Here), Dionne does all the top celebrity lashes but is still so down to earth, and is also very inspiring to be around. The best tip I got from D’Lashes is to wait 30-50 seconds for the glue to get tacky before placing the faux lashes on your lash line. Click below to read more.

I love anything ’70s, but I also like mixing in some ’90s style as well. I layered a Zara lace top on top of a white t-shirt with denim on denim Zara jeans and Diesel (vintage) jacket. These gray “Mom Fit” jeans are currently sold out but Zara might Continue reading →
It’s 2017, and now more than ever you need to create your own personal brand. Here are my top 6 social media platforms that I recommend using ASAP from my “Personal Branding + Marketing Tips Guide” that will be available soon.
Why should you build your personal brand you ask? Grow your personal brand so that you can build trust, control your own destiny, career, and become an industry influencer / leader.
“There are seven billion people in the world today, and in 2010 23% percent of them were online. By 2020 there will be almost eight (7.8) billion people in the world, and 68% of them will be online.” — Marie Forleo
Like most people, you’re probably thinking, “What? All of it? Do you know how many social media platforms there are these days?”
No worries, you don’t have to be on all of them. Here are the top social media platforms I personally recommend using:
An image is worth a thousand words. Instagram has now over 500 million active monthly users! And Instagram Stories is blowing up and will only get better. Plus, Instagram stories get more views than Snapchat videos/stories. Instagram is perfect for personal branding and I would say it’s my #1 at the moment. Make sure you’re posting beautiful quality content that’s not commercial daily. Also be sure to tag brands, people, and use #hashtags. Take your Instagram pics to the next level with my favorite new book “Capture Your Style: Transform Your Instagram Images, Showcase Your Life, and Build the Ultimate Platform, written by Aimee Song. Aimee is a fashion and lifestyle blogger with more than four million Instagram followers, so she knows a thing or two about photography, marketing, and personal branding. Get yourself a copy ASAP. Trust me, you need it. Click the link above or bottom book picture to purchase. Goal: Post 1 beautiful / creative on-brand image per day + use Instagram stories (be a storyteller and share behind the scenes action) same as you would Snapchat.
Amazing target market reach, and cost-effective advertising. You can target your specific market to the detail with just a few dollars per ad. Plus, Facebook loves videos and now has live video…use both! Since Facebook favors videos they get better reach and more views. Make sure to create a Facebook page that is separate from your private Facebook profile. You can create a business/company page, brand, product, artist, band, public figure, group, and non-profit page..etc Click here to create your page. Also, remember to always reply to comments on your page. Goal: To connect and engage with your audience with daily / weekly posts.
Video is big right now, and will only get bigger. Hello vlogging! YouTube is an incredibly powerful tool that you can use to build your personal brand and social media fan base. Upload well edited “About Me”, “How To”, Personal Vlogs, and Client Interviews videos. YouTube is one of the largest Search Engine after Google, and Google owns YouTube. That means better ranking on Goggle when you post your videos. Goal: Post quality on-brand 5-20 minute videos (once per week or once per month) to grow your followers across all social media platforms.
It’s almost Fall and I can’t wait to wear my favorite pieces. This season it’s all about embellishments from head to toe, rich colors, black on back, leather looks, chokers, velvet, backpacks, and sporty style + sneakers with everything. Anything goes!
