How To Monetize Your Social Media

Hi everyone! If you follow me on Instagram you know that I recently started up my Patreon again. I created it just for creators who want to grow and monetize their platforms.

The Patreon has three different tiers, depending on what you are looking for.

Click here to check out the Patreon.

I have $10, $25, and $35 levels. The higher the level, the more benefits you get. If you are so wanting to go full time blogging and influencing I would highly suggest the two higher level packages.

Strawberry + Sedona Trip

Hi everyone! I’m back with a travel blog post. I just got back in town from spending some time up north and I wanted to share some of the fun spots I went to!

We started in Sedona for the day and did some eating and exploring. First we grabbed some juices at the Local Juicery.

After we took in the views and got some content for Instagram!

We had lunch at Rascal which is located at the Wilde Resort. I had a grilled cheese, with tomato soup and a salad!

Before we left we hiked up one of the vortexes and took in the beautiful Sedona views.

After, we headed to Strawberry! We stayed at the Strawberry Inn, which we absolutely love! The hotel is super cute and they also have different options for accommodations.

While we were there we hiked Tonto Natural Bridge which was gorgeous! The hike to get down is very rocky and slippery but it’s totally worth it.

The trip was so much fun and we had a great time exploring the two towns!

Scottsdale Travel Guide

Hi everyone! Life has been so crazy busy but I wanted to sit down and share my Scottsdale guide for those who are traveling here. I get a ton of requests over on Instagram to share places for girls who are coming into town for a bachelorette party especially!

First up, my favorite restaurants in town that are a must visit when you are here!

Francine– located outside of Fashion Square mall. Amazing French food!

Maple & Ash– upscale, really amazing food. Great for a fancier dinner or a fancy brunch!

La Grande Orange– for a great brunch spot! Has a small shopping area also that would be great for getting some souvenirs.

Zinque– located next to Francine, has a great menu for all day dining. Really cute patio area.

Those are just some of the restaurants that I like! You really can’t go wrong with anything located around Fashion Square and Old Town.

Where to stay? Depending on which part you want to stay in, there are tons of cute airbnbs around old town that are perfect for bigger groups! If you are wanting a hotel Senna is gorgeous, and if you want something relaxing and outside Scottsdale, Civana is a great escape.

What you should do while you are here, depends on what time of year you are here! Look up all of the events we have throughout the year. There are golfing events, rodeos, and spring training! Arizona draws in a big crowd certain times of the year when the weather is perfect and people are wanting to take advantage of it!

There is a lot to do over in Old Town. They have bars and restaurants and shops galore. Early spring is probably the best time to come and check out the valley!

We have lots of options for outdoor activities. People come from all over to enjoy our golf courses. There are also tons of trails for hiking all over.

Five Ways To Celebrate Spring

Hi everyone! I love Spring. I love the flowers and the weather, especially here in AZ! It’s not the same as other places but I love seeing the plants change and the beautiful perfect pool weather!

The first way to celebrate is to spring clean! I love doing a big closet clean out and making room for new clothes. I also like to pack away the winter stuff, since it takes up so much room.

Next, plant something! I love having fresh herbs around, especially in the spring! Basil and mint are my favorite to keep around.

Do a spring wardrobe refresh! It is so fun to add a couple new pieces for the season. I love floral patterns and pastels with neutrals for the spring.

I also love spring activities! There are so many fun ones. I love all of the ones relating to Easter and getting creative. It reminds me of my childhood and all of the activities I did growing up.

Lastly, get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather before it gets too warm outside!

Arizona Date Ideas

Since I started dating again, trying to figure out what to do for a date night/day is always hard! I’ve been asked so many times for recommendations and here are some of my favorites that I’ve done recently and in the past!

Day date outdoors– There are so many great options to do here in AZ! When the weather is nice going hiking and getting to explore new trails is always a lot of fun. There’s also golfing, going to the lake, and horseback riding!

Fun activities– Going bowling, to top golf, or an arcade are always good options.

Bars- Old Town and Cave Creek are always fun on a Friday or Saturday night. There are tons of things to do such as karaoke and watching live music.

Restaurants– Scottsdale is know for its dining! There is a variety of amazing restaurants to choose from and I will be writing an updated blog post next week on all of my favorite places!

End of the Year Reflection

Hi everyone! 2021 was a crazy year filled with so many ups and downs. My goal was to end the year on a more positive note. I was so sad for months, and after picking up the pieces I poured all of my energy into growing my business and finding happiness in the small things.

I set new goals and had to rearrange my life plans. I wanted to hit 20K on Instagram before Christmas and at the beginning of December I did! I also landed 25 paid collaborations for the 4th quarter. It kept me super busy and distracted. I also wanted to find a new boarding facility for my horse, and I found the perfect place for him.

Being able to have him so close to me is amazing! I love getting to see him so much more and not having to drive out to where he was before.

I know that the holidays can be hard for people. When you lose someone sometimes you miss them even more during those times. I haven’t been in the holiday spirit this year so I’ve focused on other things. If you are feeling this way, know you’re not alone!

The Software Creators Need

Hi friends! I know I have a lot of fellow creators that follow along, who want help on all things blogging! This post is a little different than my typical advice, but so practical for those of us who spend so much time on our computers!

Solve iQ is an amazing software for your PC to help keep things running like you need them to! If you are tired of your computer running slow or lagging zoom calls, you need this!

I know personally I always have a lot going on, on my computer! I end up with multiple pages open while I’m working and I need them all to be able to keep up.

I recently took my PC on a trip, I stayed in and Airstream and thankfully I had Solve iQ to be able to get work done! Slow internet wasn’t a problem!

Anyone who spends time on their computer working absolutely needs to get Solve iQ for their PC! When you are using the Productivity Software, it’s so helpful to know what could possibly be causing any slowness in your PC!

For my gamer friends this software would also be so helpful! I have so many people in mind who could benefit from using Solve iQ. If you are like me you will also probably love having the 24/7 support! I seem to always have technical trouble and knowing I will be able to get help when I need it, is key for me!

How To Plan Your Social Media Content

Hi friends! I just got in a new planner to help me keep all of my collabs and social media content straight. I love that there is also space in the planner for me to write down goals and plan out what I am working towards for the month.

This is what the planner looks like. It is from Pose Planners. They have different versions for whatever you need. The pages in the planner are great quality and I am loving having something that is dedicated specifically to social media.

You can check out all of the different planners from their sister store here.
