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!

Monday Momentum

05.13.13

Monday’s can seem to be particularly daunting with a full work week ahead of you and usually accompanying that is a long to-do list. Sometimes, just the overall mere size of the list or the size of the project can stall you before you even get started

stop thinking and just do

When those moments happen to me …. I honestly just pick a task on the list that I know can be done pretty quick and easy and set out to work. Before you know it, I’ve accomplished 4, 5, 6 tasks and feeling much more optimistic about the week ahead!

Have a great day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day … a day designed to thank Mom for all she does each & every day, a day without having to make any decisions, and a day of doing completely nothing if that’s what she’d like. To all the Mom’s out there (including Mom’s of pets!), wishing you a very Happy Mother’s Day!

happy mother's day

And to my Mom …. thank you for always being supportive & encouraging for me to always go for what I want. Your thoughtfulness & willingness to think of others is truly remarkable and very much appreciated. I hope you have a wonderful day (wish I could be there to help celebrate)!
