New Life Update

Hi everyone! Life has been so crazy lately. I recently started a new job and I am adjusting to blogging and also working. I am in the office Monday Wednesday and Friday now, and it is completely different! I got used to only working from home and for myself. I am now doing social media and online retail for a small business!

I also just had a birthday February 13th! I turned 24 and celebrated by going to brunch with my boyfriend and then we went to happy hour with my best friends!

I have definitely stepped out of my comfort zone which is hard for me to do. I love that I have made some changes and keep on growing! I still plan on expanding my own business and growing that while working part time.

I am also taking coaching clients if you are interested in one on one coaching! For anyone looking for grow their social media and work with brands I help other bloggers step up their Instagram game and land the paid collaborations they are wanting.

What are your big life changes recently?

New Clothing Rack

For my birthday this year I asked for a clothing rack! I have been wanting one for a couple years now. I ordered mine off of Amazon and it was perfect for my room! It fits great in the spot and I love being able to display items I love.

This is what the rack looked like completely empty! It matches perfectly with my room. I wanted to display purses and some other items on the side and try to stick to neutrals for the clothing items.

This is not the final look for my clothing rack! I am still messing around with it and plan on getting some other items for the shelves. So far I am happy with the progress and can’t wait to do more decorating!

Here is the link for my clothing rack if you are interested in purchasing it!

How To Stay Motivated Blogging/On Instagram

This weeks post is a highly requested one. I’ve gotten asked on Instagram many times how I stay motivated to post and to keep creating content. The answer is actually pretty simple…I love it! I genuinely enjoy what I do. I have a great time meeting up with my blogger friends to shoot photos and I have gotten to work with some incredible brands.

Doing what I love motivates me! I know the harder I work and the more consistent I am the more opportunities I get. This job is all about what you make from it. This year has been an extremely hard one. With so many ups and downs this has been consistent for me. I have also been able to grow and get better at what it is that I do.

I have been lucky enough to work with some big brands and gotten chosen for some exciting collabs. Some of my favorite collaborations have been from companies who have reached out to me! They love my page and they pick me to advertise their product and that feels like such an honor.

I got to work with Stella Artois, and they picked me as their micro-influencer for their campaign. That felt absolutely amazing! I had such a great time learning how to work with a bigger company like theirs.

I decided I needed to help other women be able to work with brands and I started my one on one coaching page. I knew that, that wasn’t enough and maybe some people didn’t want one on one so I created an affordable EBook also to help them land paying collabs.

I stay motivated knowing I am making progress and growing. I love to write everything down and to look back and see how far I have come. I consistently add new goals to accomplish and that keeps me motivated.

If you are wanting one on one coaching go to my Instagram page- https://instagram.com/thebusybco

If you just want the EBook- https://gumroad.com/l/YMskz

I hope this helps someone and puts them on a path to success.

At Home Laser Hair Removal

2020 was all about staying home and doing it ourselves and I think with some things we should keep that going into 2021! Like at home laser hair removal. I have gone to spas for laser and I have also done it myself. It is so nice not to have to pay crazy prices to get a smooth hairless look! The price of the laser is the price of one treatment at some spas! This saves you so much money.

I love my RoseSkinCo IPL. I can use it wherever I want and whenever I want! It is so handy being able to do it myself.

Use code TheBusyBrunette for a discount! And click This Link to shop!

It is a total game changer and everyone I know who has purchased theirs absolutely loves it! I am so happy with my results and I love not having to pay spa prices.

Great Gift Ideas (With Discounts)

This is my long awaited blog post! I work with a ton of great companies all year long and these are the best of the best items with amazing discounts!l wanted this guide to have something for all the ladies in your life (and maybe guys too).

First up is the item I get the most comments and questions on. The RoseSkinCo IPL. With everything going on this year, this at home laser has been extremely popular with everyone.

When you go to the spa you end up spending thousands of dollars to be able to do your full body. This device is under $100 and so easy to use! My discount makes it even more affordable! Use code TheBusyBrunette. Click This Link To Shop

Next up is a line of makeup I am incredibly passionate about! Frankie Rose Cosmetics has been a total game changer for me. I have used the same foundation for years and years. I have tried to many foundations and never liked them and ended up going back to the same foundation…until Frankie Rose. I am obsessed with their foundation. It is super easy to color match online also which is so helpful! They also have so many great pallets and lip colors. I also love their concealers! Use my code BUSYBRUNETTE for a discount at checkout. Click Here To Shop

This next beauty tool is an absolute game changer! We all wash our faces, and we all have a different skincare routine. This device is amazing! Face cleaners like the Clarisonic don’t really clean your pores. Most ways that we clean our faces don’t actually get dirt and makeup out of our pores. The LumiSkin does! I am going to add an informational photo that do an even better job explaining.

You can shop This Link if you are interested in the LumiSkin. This would make an amazing gift and I know any woman in my life would love to get this!

Last but not least is my favorite self tanner. Self tanner is another product I am so picky about. I have used Loving Tan for years and now this tanner has replaced it!

Use code BusyB! Shop Here

I hope this is helpful for anyone looking for a great gift or just something to treat yourself!

My Favorite Salmon Recipe

Hi friends! If you know me you know I am not much of a cook. In fact I try to avoid cooking as much as possible! I am a big fan of really super simple recipes. That is the only thing you will ever see me post on here. Unless you enjoy cooking (good for you), you’re going to want all the simple ones that I make!

What you are going to need are salmon filets and veggies of your choice to roast with it. I personally like carrots and sugar snap pees. The snap pees always turn out amazing! Grab a sheet pan and put some foil on top of it and spray some cooking oil on top.

Ingredients-

1. Minced garlic.

2. Butter mixture- 6 tablespoons butter, oregano, thyme, pinch of salt and pepper.

Melt the butter and mix the ingredients in. You will need to rub the minced garlic on the filets and then spread the butter mixture all over. Also put the butter mix on the veggies.

Preheat to 375 and cook for about 15 minutes or until the salmon flakes off.

Saved from my story highlight! Follow me on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thebusybrunetteblog

I hope you try out this super easy recipe and love it as much as I do! It is really fast and also healthy which is a huge bonus when it comes to an easy meal.

Skincare and Bodycare

Hi friends! Today on the blog we are talking all about skincare. I am working with a company for today’s post. They were kind enough to send me a variety of products from their line!

They sent me the cutest basket of stuff! I absolutely love bath products. Anything from bath bombs to scrubs or bath salts, I’m all for it! Especially the products from the Dead Sea.

The products all smell so amazing! I am a big fan of organic products and I love that they have that option. If you ask any of my friends they would tell you I’m obsessed with lavender. I always carry a bottle of it with me everywhere!

These products would all make amazing stocking stuffers or gifts for someone! I know a lot of the people in my life would love to receive these goodies!

This company also has tons of other great products! I’ll make sure to link their website so you are able to shop all of the products I’ve mentioned and also the other ones from their website.

Stay tuned for more holiday blogs! I want to try to post more for the month of December.

IPL Laser Hair Removal

Hi friends! If you follow me on Instagram (@thebusybrunetteblog) you would know that I started doing my own laser hair removal at home during covid! I use a device from RoseSkinCo. It is super easy to use and so much cheaper than going to a spa.

The IPL has five different settings depending on what level you want. Starting out a level 3 is good and then I suggest working your way up! You can use it up to two times a week. This will get you the best results. The more consistent you are the better.

If you want to try it out or gift it to someone for the holidays I have a code to try the RoseSkinCo laser. Use TheBusyBrunette at checkout for 15% off!
