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!

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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hi friends! Every year you can look forward to one thing from bloggers for the holiday season….gift guides! I am a big fan of gift guides. Even before I was a blogger I loved to see what all of the bloggers would put together. I tried to make one for everyone in your life without going too crazy!
My favorite guide to make is gifts for her! I love picking out things I want and also things people in my life would love.
Next up is gifts for the guys in your life! This is always the most requested guide.
I love cozy things and being gifted them is always so nice! I think any woman or even a man appreciates the comfy stuff.
The next guide is all about finding something for anyone in your life! This can be friends, family, teachers, pets…you name it!
I didn’t want to overwhelm anyone with all of the gifts. I wanted this to be a super simple guide for anyone who needs a little extra help shopping this year!
As always thank you for supporting me and shopping my links. I really appreciate it!
