Instagram Content Ideas

I know a lot of my fellow bloggers struggle coming up with content to post, so I wanted to make a “content bingo” for my style/lifestyle blogger friends.

Make sure to screenshot this for ideas on what to post! If you know of anyone who else who could use this make sure to send it their way too!

My Everyday Makeup

I always get questions on what products I use for my makeup routine. I use a mix of high end and drugstore products, which I love! I do have eyelash extensions which helps cut down on the time and I also save on mascara, I don’t go through tubes fast.

I use a lot of Charlotte Tilbury products, they are definitely a favorite of mine! I think the quality is amazing.

If you want a tutorial I would love to post either a blog post or Instagram reel!

How To Deal With People

This one was hard to title. One thing about putting little parts of your life on social media and the internet is you never know who is watching. It is probably my least favorite part. Occasionally I will get a rude comment here or there but I also get people who just want to creep.

The creeps are the worst. I hate seeing people looking at my stuff who are not looking with positive intentions. Anyone who creates a fake account for the purpose of looking at your stuff needs some serious help! Especially when it comes to my blog. My blog is a place for me to really talk about the things I like and things that I don’t necessarily put on Instagram. I first started a blog when I was in middle school. Nobody ever read it and it was basically like having an online diary. Now I have more of an audience and I have to be more careful about what it is that I’m posting.

Dating someone and having their exes like to look at my stuff will never not be beyond weird! Or someone who knows someone I know but doesn’t personally know me but just wants to look at my stuff…will never stop being strange to me.

If you feel compelled to keep track of people constantly that you don’t even know, I feel like it’s time to evaluate your own life. It’s still hard not to let it bother me. Thankfully the majority of my followers follow me because they like my style and product recommendations, or they are just other bloggers that are super supportive.

It got me thinking about who it is that supports our content. The other day on my stories I asked my fellow bloggers if they felt supported by the people in their life and if not who. It made me sad to see how many people said their partners, partners families and their friends didn’t support them. A lot of people could relate to it. My mom and friends have always been supportive of me and think that I work so hard on my content. Then there are other people who don’t understand and think it’s not a “real job” or like to make fun of it. It definitely hurts not getting that support and I know a lot of people give up on blogging because of it.

I like being able to tell the women who need it that if they don’t have a single person in their life who is supporting them, me and so many other women will be there to cheer them on. That is what I’ve found in my community. I have made great friends because of it. So it’s not just a job, it’s so much more.

How To Work With Brands

How to work with companies as an influencer/blogger?! I love teaching this to bloggers. I coach and I also have an ebook on this topic!

First, I would say to make sure to interact with them on Instagram. Companies want to see that you have a genuine love for the company! This will help get you noticed.

Next, have a pitch ready for them! I like to have a general email that I can switch up depending on the company, and add in personal touches to.

Last, have an Instagram that is business friendly! Be professional, and have a great aesthetic. This draws companies to you, which is how I get a ton of my collaborations.

These are just a couple simple tips to get you started. If you are serious about growing your page and turning it into a business I highly recommend grabbing the ebook!

Packing For Road Trip

I love road tripping! Every year my boyfriend and I go to Wyoming in the summer. It is such a nice escape from the Arizona heat! One thing I love about not flying is that I can pack whatever I want! I brought a duffel bag and my suit case, which is what I usually do for the trip. We are going for 10 days! I like to have a variety of outfits and I am a classic overpacker.

My suitcase has pockets for shoes and a couple zippered areas. I used the large one for underwear and bathing suits. I left the other one empty to put my dirty stuff in!

I also have two sides which I try to divide up. I use one side for the majority of my clothing and the other for most of the other stuff plus whatever clothes don’t fit.

In my duffel I put all of my makeup and toiletries and anything else I could possibly need! Since we are driving I am leaving my cowgirl boots out of my bags and will just throw them in the truck with everything else!

I personally don’t like packing but I try to make it organized at first, because when I come home my luggage is a total mess!

My Top Summer Vacation Spots

Hi everyone! With the world starting to open up more, people are finally starting to vacation again! I can’t wait to travel and go to some of my favorite states.

I’ll be heading to Wyoming and then Utah around the 4th of July and I can’t wait! My boyfriend and I drive there during the summer. It takes over 15 hours to get there but it is totally worth it. I love sightseeing along the way. There are so many beautiful places you drive through depending on which way you want to take!

We stay in a small town outside of Jackson Hole, WY. They put on the really fun 4th and it is such a good time. I want to go back to Yellowstone again this year. I have such a good time there, it is absolutely breathtaking. There are tons of things to do in Wyoming! The nature is definitely the best part. Driving around you will see bears and elk and all sorts of cool wildlife. We also love the natural hot springs located in a town a couple hours away.

This year we plan on taking our time going back through Utah and doing some exploring there! They have tons of very cool places such as right outside Provo in the canyons there are lakes and lots of fun activities to do there! We will also hopefully stop a couple times closer to AZ and sightsee over there. I will be making an updated travel guide for both Utah and Wyoming!

I have a couple of other places I am planning on making a trip to around AZ and also New Mexico! My boyfriend has a cabin right on the border of those states so we will be going there a few times to escape the heat. I also love doing day trips to Sedona, Flagstaff, and Prescott!

Hopefully we will also book a California trip to be able to enjoy the beach for a few days. I haven’t been to the beach in forever so I’m hoping we will get a hotel or Airbnb booked in Laguna or around there!

I already can’t wait to get out of this Arizona heat and go explore!

Side Hustle Ideas 2021

There is no better time to start a side hustle then now! I myself have a bunch of side hustles. In fact some would consider my job a side hustle! Depending on how much time you have, I have made a list of some great side hustles to make more money this year.

First one is blogging! This is my full time job. I work as an influencer/blogger. You can make money through affiliate marketing, paid collabs’s and some other ways! I also coach women how to do this which is part of my side hustle!

Become a tutor/teacher. There are tons of ways to do this! I know people who work for VIP Kid and love it. You can pick what hours you work. This one you must have a degree but it doesn’t have to be in teaching.

Selling old items or things you just don’t need anymore. I sell my clothes and tons of other stuff. I love clearing out my closet and room because as a blogger I receive free items and also shop a lot.

Find a passion and make money off of it. What are you passionate about? Or what are you good at? How can you turn it into a side hustle? I personally have horses and use that on the side!

An ebook is a great way to make more money! I have an ebook on how to grow your Instagram to 10K and work with companies! Here is the link for the ebook.

You can also have additional digital products to sell based off of your knowledge! I have one of these also and priced it to sell! Link to my content planner.

I hope you found this post helpful! Follow me for weekly blog posts.

A Day In The Life Of A Full Time Blogger

Welcome or welcome back to the blog! For those of you who don’t know my name is Chloe, I am an Arizona based blogger and influencer. This is my full time job and I love it! I am also trying to get into real estate but that is another topic for another day.

I wanted to go through what some of my days are like working as a blogger! It is a super misunderstood job and most people have ideas about what it may be like vs what it is really like.

My day usually starts out waking up between 6:15 and 7. I don’t set an alarm this is just when I naturally wake up. I start by checking my email and seeing if I have gotten any messages from brands. I get tons of emails every day and try to be really good about keeping track of them!

I then move on to engagement on Instagram. I like to make sure I respond to all of my comments and DMs that I haven’t gotten to yet.

I usually get up and get ready for my day after that. I like to take a little time to meditate and prepare myself for the day. I also make sure to eat breakfast, because I know I won’t feel good if I skip it. After I’ve gotten ready I spend some time working on graphics on Canva. I run multiple accounts so I like to make sure I have lots of content for each account. I also create my LIKEtoKNOW.it graphics and see what clothing is new and what’s on sale that I think my audience will love. I then share it to Instagram and also Pinterest!

I have been trying to get in at home workouts but that doesn’t always happen, I need to get better about it. I like to take little breaks throughout the afternoon because being on your phone and computer for so long is draining. I catch up on shows I have missed while I have lunch and read some of the book I review for the book of the month!

I like to take time to research trends and things I can use to increase my visibility online. I am constantly working on bettering my content and overcoming the algorithm! I also like to make a list of potential collaborations and send out pitch emails around this time.

In the early to late afternoon I do my post for the day. I don’t plan posts so I have to make sure I am available for at least an hour around that time to ensure that, that post is successful!

I usually work on a blog post or do research for an upcoming blog post to round out my day. I do keep engaging and responding to comments and DMs until usually I go to bed.

I also have content shoot days which are a little different! For those I pack a bag of things I have received from companies or that I have purchased that I think people will like. I meet up with a blogger friend and we shoot at a designated location for the day. This usually takes a couple hours at least and then I go home and review, delete and edit all of the photos that I took for the day.

One thing I love about blogging is that every day is different and that is part of the fun! I am never bored and I am always thankful I am not sitting at a desk in an office I hate.
