Join Me Next Year…

05.20.13

Who wants to join me next year in NYC for the National Stationary Show??? As a self-admitted hoarder of notebooks, notepads, greeting cards, etc …. I am beyond envious of those that are able to browse aisle after aisle of the 3 day show.

Monday Momentum // Stick Your Neck Out

05.20.13

Being a part of ALT for Everyone last week was such a great experience in that I connected with so many fabulous bloggers, learned an incredible amount & got my creative juices flowing! Our Keynote Speaker was blogger, Joy Cho from Oh Joy!, who is at the top of her game in terms of running an amazing blog & connected businesses. I couldn’t stop thinking about her presentation and in the end, I’ve really embraced that you truly need to stick your neck out for what you want in life. Hard work & persistence will help overcome those road blocks life throws at you and leave you with a clear vision of your ultimate goal.

ALT For Everyone

05.17.13

Hey!

Ok … so I must apologize in advance if I’m a little M.I.A. as I’ve been attending ALT For Everyone, a three day online bloggers conference. I’m determined to keep learning as much as I can in anything I do. These kind of seminars really set the wheels in motion and reenergize the mind to stay on task towards your ultimate goal!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend with family & friends!

Working From Home Ground Rules

05.16.13

As the saying goes, “working from home is meant for some people and not for others.” For me, working from home not only applies to my full-time job at Modish Digital, but also as the creator of Modish & Main. I absolutely love it and do well with it, but not without some ground rules in order to ensure I’m effective.

Getting Started with these 10 Tips for Working From Home | Modish and Main

I have a daily routine that I primarily stick to on any given day. I don’t like to be late to work and I certainly don’t enjoy staying after. Therefore, during my working hours I want to be the most productive .

I Totally Got Sidetracked…

05.15.13

When I sat down last night to write today’s blog post, I totally got sidetracked by my Bloglovin’ feed and these AMAZING links I came across! (note: you could become addicted in seconds and not accomplish anything for the rest of the day/night)

 

Pickie.com: Thanks to Hitha On The Go for her latest post on her love of this new website/app that makes shopping even that much better! It’s a personalized shopping magazine fit to all your interests with the inclusion of “like” flags and it’s super-easy to pin the image. (that’s a deal breaker for me usually!)

NicolesClasses.com: if you are into expanding your skillset with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Photography, etc … this website offers the best classes. BUT … that’s not what got me sidetracked last night. I clicked the link to view their free downloads and was busy downloading amazing design templates for at least 45 minutes to an hour. How great are they to offer these for FREE ?!?! (thank you Alma & Melanie)

The Hunt For Strappy High Heel Sandals

05.14.13

Sometimes, there is just a new design or trend that comes out that I virtually become obsessed with and have to do my research on what’s available. Hence…. the hunt for strappy high heel sandals has found it’s mark in the fashion industry and I’m absolutely in love with it.

The key components to this look are the minimal amount of “foot coverage”, the ankle strap and it’s ability to make your leg go on forever!
