Instagram Content – To Post Or Not To Post? That is The Question.

 I wanted to talk about a slightly different topic than normal on here – about the thought process behind scheduling my Instagram posts and my entire Instagram feed itself…

“Is it a GOOD photo or is it mediocre?” “Does it look good on my feed?” “Should I start posting only outfit photos and not coffee drinks or pretty flatlays because my outfits get higher engagement?” “Should I completely change my entire feed and try something new?” “Should I share things other than fashion?” “Should I play it safe and only post content that I already know will do well?” ” or should I change it up and not care?” “What direction should I take?” Asking for a friend. 

This is how I’ve been feeling lately. I have been in one of those moods where I feel stuck in a rut, confused, lost. Getting out of this weird “funk” is sometimes difficult. Or maybe I’m just having a moment. It happens. I feel like other bloggers know what I’m talking about. I’ve noticed that whenever I post a photo other than outfits, it doesn’t get the reaction I would’ve hoped for. Engagement is super low. While I love my feed to have a variety and not just outfit after another, seems like my followers are not into it. They only like my outfit photos. So what do I do? Should I only post what my followers like instead of what I like?

Don’t get me wrong. I do post what I like and I stay true to myself, but sometimes I look at my feed and think “(Yawning) Ugh, I could’ve done better”. “Boring”. And I don’t like feeling this way.

While you’ll see more of my personality and personal side on my Instagram stories and Snapchat, I do keep my Instagram account strictly blog-related content. I have to. It’s my business, however; you will see my fun-witty-sarcastic side (read IG captions), and share content that is still relevant but not just an OOTD after another OOTD… make sense? That’s what my personal account is for – to show content that isn’t blog-related.

The way I see my Instagram account is if it looks boring to me, then I need to make some changes. I like content that shows some type of breakage, that splits content from repeating similar content in a row, such as beauty or details shots or anything inspiring. I like consistency but not repetitive if that makes any sense.

So while I still try to figure out the plans for my Instagram feed and the direction I plan to take, I do hope that you stick around because I do plan to sprinkle in some new not-your-usual content on my Instagram.

 If you have any suggestions or thoughts on this post, feel free to leave me a comment. I love reading them. 🙂

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Rebecca Minkoff runway show debuting her Spring 2017 collection, on behalf of GE Lighting, to celebrate the launch of the RMxGE Glow selfie case. It was so much fun. The best part was that it was a see-now-buy-now show, which meant that the audience was able to view the collection off the runway and shop the entire collection right after.

The collection was a mix of floral prints, flirty and whimsical silhouettes, along with statement handbags.

The Best Ways to Find Deals on Ankle Boots

ankle boots, sale, deals, fall, season, online, shopping, boots,

 

Whether you’re in dire need of new ankle boots to replace your worn soles or simply need a style update, shopping online is one of the most convenient ways to get a new pair or two. Making shoe purchases online can also save you a lot of money because of all the discounts and special offers you can get. Here are five of the best ways to find the best deals on ankle boots online:

Check out coupon sites.

If you want to slash up to 75% off the cost of your purchase, there’s no better way to do it than using coupon codes for ankle boots. Coupon sites offer products and services from top brands at discounted prices and you can even score special offers such as free delivery or a free pair of shoes. Voucher codes are great for those who want to stay in style and have trendy ankle boots but don’t have the budget to buy them at full price. You can get voucher codes for Public Desire by visiting Total Discounts and then you just need to apply the code when you check out. Remember though, it’s important to act quickly, as coupon codes have an expiration date and you have to make your purchase while they’re still valid.

Visit retailer or manufacturer sites.

Shoe brands usually have post-season or clearance sales on their products, so it would be a good idea to bookmark their websites and watch out for sales. It may involve a lot of waiting, but your efforts will surely pay off when you get your coveted ankle boots on sale. As with coupon codes, when buying at clearance sales you’ll have to move fast to make sure the pair you want in your size is still in stock. Many brands also provide discounts for students at uni, an incentive you don’t want to let go of. To get notified about clearance sales and exclusive deals, join the brand’s online community, subscribe to the newsletter or follow them on social media so you can receive promo announcements right away.

Browse around online marketplaces.

Online marketplaces such as like eBay offer items that are new or have never been used, pre-loved or slightly used. Sellers on these sites let potential buyers haggle or pay the listed price upfront. If you don’t mind wearing slightly used shoes, these online marketplaces are great places to find a good, affordable pair. If you’re hunting for ankle boots that aren’t sold in shops anymore, someone on eBay probably has them up for sale. It may require a bit of hard work, but you’ll surely score a great deal.

Consider clothing and shoe swaps.

Swapping clothes and shoes with other trendy folks is another way to find ankle boots online. There are websites that provide a platform for people who would rather swap clothes and shoes than sell. If you have items you no longer wear or use such as knee-high boots or a coat in the wrong colour, someone online may want them in exchange for ankle boots and a matching jacket. Swapping online is usually free or may involve a small fee for shipping but it’s definitely a sure-fire way of finding ankle boots at a low price or at no cost at all.

I went to San Francisco with the hubs and friends this past weekend. As expected, it was cold, but nonetheless, so much fun!

We took an early flight Saturday… thankfully Blacklane made the ride comfortable and cozy for us. We spent the entire weekend/Monday exploring and walking the streets of Union Square.

It was a short trip, plus it rained – but so worth it. It was nice getting away from the LA heat.

Last week, George and I were invited to attend the Kyboe Show in Miami for Miami Swim Week. It was our first time going to Miami so you can only imagine how excited we were to attend.

We arrived super early Friday morning where we stayed at the Gale Hotel, which was AH-mazing! The first thing we did on Friday (after we took a nap of course) was walk down to the beach. I loved that it was walking distance from our hotel. We then headed back to the hotel to get ready for the show that same night.

The Kyboe show totally blew my mind when they displayed the watches on a conveyer belt, followed by actual models wearing the watches. Later that evening, we hung out with Marc bell, owner of Kyboe at the Setai Hotel for drinks.

The very next morning, we met with the Kyboe team at the Setai, where they reserved a section on the beach for all of us. It was so relaxing. That same night, Marc and his wife Jen invited us over to their home for an intimate dinner, where we took a legit party bus fully stocked with champagne. Oh, and there was a DJ on the bus, too! It was so much fun! If you didn’t follow me on snapchat and didn’t see my stories that night, then you totally missed out because their home was unbelievable! And Jen’s closet?! I mean, don’t even get me started. AMAZING!!! P.s. Jen, if you’re reading this, I can totally be your personal stylist. Just throwing it out there. 🙂

We had an incredible time. The most memorable yet. Thank you to Marc and Jen, and the entire Kyboe team for having us. It’s definitely one for the books.

In case you missed it, I attended the Magic Tradeshow in Las Vegas as one of the Magic influencers. It was really exciting to be on the panel with other very inspiring bloggers. I spoke in 3 different panels about YouTube, beauty, fashion and tips on how to make your brand successful.

This is what I wore for the first day. I keep the look clean and simple with this fun culottes jumpsuit and snakeskin booties.

Here’s what I wore the second day (last day). I decided to dress down with my favorite faux leather jacket, comfy jeans, and of course another snakeskin boot. To complete my outfit, I paired the look with this really cool fringe bag.

Vegas was so much fun! I had the opportunity to meet new bloggers and make new friends.

Stay tuned for my Magic Vlog.
