The Best Spots For Photos in Scottsdale And Phoenix Arizona Part 1

Hi everyone! This is a very requested blog post. I get tons of comments and questions about the best spots in my state. I will share the places I shoot at for my Instagram photos.

First up is Old Town Scottsdale Area! This is a great place for photos. Lots of different places to snap a picture no matter what kind of aesthetic you are going for.

I take photos around the mall as well as over in Old Town. I always get amazing results because there are so many spots!

I wanted to mention the two Airbnb’s I love that are close by to that. Being a blogger they have let me go and take photos there, but they are the cutest places to rent out! They are the Granada Grotto and the Pink Cactus.

Also in Scottsdale I am a big fan of Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter. I frequent both of these places.

We have tons of great restaurant options for photos but that is a whole other blog post! One that is great for photos is the Henry. Also Teaspressa for cute pics and a tea or coffee!

We literally have desert all around us. Taking a photo in the desert is super easy and at golden hour or in the morning is always pretty!

And that’s all for part one…stay tuned for part 2!

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!

Chic Wish Lookbook

Hi everyone! If you know me, you know I love fashion and styling clothes. This weeks post will feature clothes from Chic Wish. They have a great selection of clothing, there is something for everyone on their website.

This first look is an all black outfit. I paired this pleated leather skirt with a black body suit and my favorite over the knee boots.

This next one was more out of my comfort zone. I would typically wear this at home to lounge in but wearing it out I paired it with boots and a jean jacket to style it up!

This sweater is super thick and comfy! I love it with these boots and faux leather leggings. This bag also matched perfectly!

This sweater is also another great one! Very tick material. I love it with these riding boots.

I will link all of these items for you to shop! Shop all of the looks here !

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.

Nicole and I took tons of photos for Instagram! Make sure to follow along on https://www.instagram.com/thebusybrunetteblog and if you are interested in shopping my looks Click Here !

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.

How To Work With Brands 101

Are you a blogger or influencer wanting to start getting paid for your social media? Then this post is for you! I wrote an EBook to cover any questions you may have and to help you land your first paid collaboration.

Because of Covid I went full force on social media and really made the most of it. I turned it into my full time job in 2020 and I want to teach other women how to do the same thing! I coach one on one privately and I wanted my class to be even more accessible and affordable!

I also created another EBook at a cheaper price for those starting out and needing advice on growing their following on Instagram.

3 Graces Clean Beauty Review

Hi friends! Today I am back with more skincare. I love small little companies that focus on great products. Today I am featuring 3 Graces. They have a variety of products and I will make sure to link them for you at the end.

I picked three products to showcase today on the blog. The first one is the restoring facial balm. This is a great product packed with amazing ingredients! I also love the little quotes on the packaging. I think it’s a super cute touch.

The facial serum is another product that is fantastic. It even features caviar in it!

The last product is the lip savior. This is great especially for those whose lips suffer in the winter time like mine do.

I love getting to feature small business on my blog. Especially beauty brands like this one!

They recently joined the RewardStyle Community, launched 3 new products and got featured on Pop Sugar & Amazon as a Trending Item for Indie Beauty! 3 Graces Beauty is a women founded, owned and operated company. They also focus on clean beauty.

My Must Have Apps As An Influencer (Blogger)

Hey guys! Welcome back to another blog post. This week I wanted to share the apps that I use as a blogger that I love.

I’m going to start it off with the most obvious ones! The first one is Reward Style (LIKEtoKNOW.it) , if you don’t know what that is, it is an app influencers can use to link items in their photos.

Next, is InShot. This is how I edit any video content that I put up. It is great for making reels or stories!

My most used app for graphics is Canva. I love creating things on Canva, wether it’s for my business or blog. Also Over is a similar app that is great to create on!

Lightroom is the app I use to edit all of my photos. I have also created my own presets on there that I plan to sell in the future.

The last app I use is the Flip app. This is a clothing subscription box. You can earn money and find your favorite influencers on it! If you want to follow me and get $20 off of your box I will link it for you!

Flip Box

I hope you enjoyed this quick little blog post and I hope this helps you if you are looking for some new apps to use.
