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!

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.

Life Update

Hi everyone! I don’t tend to get too personal on social media but I love updating the blog and getting to really write important stuff down to look back on.

This last year has been a really crazy one. I started this business and threw myself into full time influencing/blogging. I also started coaching and wrote a couple ebooks! In the past year I’ve grown my following by the thousands and starting helping other women do the same.

I took a job for a very short period of time that I knew was not the one for me at all. That lasted about two months and I am back to full time influencing, which is what I really love. I am also going to be getting my real estate license (which I wish I had with this crazy market).

I lost someone close to me, and have learned a lot because of it. This world has been full of so many challenges and it has been all about taking it day by day.

I have gotten to work with some incredible companies and have been able to make more money as a micro-influencer than I did at that other job.

If you are wanting to be able to do the same thing I do I do one on one coaching and I also sell my ebook!

Sedona Day Trip

Living in Arizona is amazing! This state has so much to offer and one of my favorite little road trips is Sedona. I live only an hour and a half away which makes it the perfect escape for the day.

My best friend and I headed up to enjoy lunch, take some pictures, and enjoy the change of scenery. We mostly hung out around Tlaquepaque. Our first stop was The Secret Garden! It is one of my favorite places for lunch. The food is amazing, and they have a covered patio for seating. I highly recommend trying the Taos Club, it is delicious.

Because of the wind and the weather they had the plastic down.

We spent most of the rest of the time walking around. It is so beautiful there. It is busier in the winter, most of the time I go to Sedona during the summer months so there are less people walking around.

Being there you almost feel like you are in another country. It is stunningly picturesque. Day tripping or vacationing in Sedona in general is a great break from reality.

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.

Photo of me in Frankie Rose Cosmetics after using the LumiSkin.

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.
