I love all things from Red Dress Boutique! They are constantly coming out with new arrivals. All of their clothes are so adorable and they have tons of affordable options. I picked out a handful of pieces to share with you this month!
I love this royal blue sweater dress! It is so comfortable and would be great for so many different things. I think it would be adorable for work or for date night!
I love this plaid dress, and think it would be too cute for fall activities! Click To Shop!
This shacket is amazing, and makes me feel like I should be in Wyoming sitting by a fire. Click here to shop.
I will also be sharing more Red Dress in the future, as well as posting it a lot on LiketoKnowIt! Make sure to follow me on there if you are interesting in what I am posting.
Coming up with a great bio on Instagram can be difficult! When I am coaching women I see them struggling with what to include. My number one tip is to include searchable information with your name.
You can see I have my name and I included AZ blogger because I wanted it to be searchable for anyone looking for bloggers located in my state! This has helped me get lots of great opportunities. Then I talk about what it is that you can expect from me on my page. I also use beacons for all of my links, which is incredibly helpful!
If you are looking for help getting companies to work with you be sure to reach out to me, or purchase my ebook!
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 are wanting to shop click here! I linked most of the products. You can also use code 15Chloe for your Tula products.
If you want a tutorial I would love to post either a blog post or Instagram reel!
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.
Anxiety is something I have had for as long as I can remember, when I was a freshman in high school I finally had a name for the feeling. It wasn’t commonly talked about before that. Everyone who has anxiety has a different kind of anxiety, and it can manifest itself in different ways.
I have general anxiety and also social anxiety. When I go out I get easily overwhelmed. I get really bad sensory overload especially in places that are loud with a lot of people and a lot going on. By the end of the night I’m always exhausted. I have also been told I look unhappy, because I’m so in my head in the moment. I always worry about coming off as rude because I get quiet while trying to work through it.
The anxiety can manifest itself as bad physical symptoms as well which is always hard. I know a lot of people can relate to this.
I have a few ways that I cope with it. First, I take supplements for anxiety. There are a ton of good herbal options that you can get from Sprouts or Whole Foods. Second, I use breathing and meditation to try to calm down the feeling. There are so many great exercises such as tapping, yoga breathing, and other similar methods for relaxation. Last, I honestly like watching TV or reading a good book. Anything that is super distracting to the brain.
You aren’t alone if you struggle with this. Sometimes life also throws a lot at us and it may feel completely overwhelming at times. This last month has been the hardest in my life. Some days I have a hard time just leaving the house, but everyday I work on it. It just takes time.
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!
