Ulta Beauty | My One Stop Shop For All Things Beauty

The title says it all. And when I say for all things beauty, I really do mean it! Not only do I get most of my makeup and skincare from Ulta Beauty, I get my hair done at their salon as well as most of my haircare products! I bet it already sounds way too good to be true but what if I say it gets better? Because it totally does! Ulta not only carries budget friendly and high end brands but they also offer some of the BEST deals on beauty by sending out weekly coupons and often times discounts on 20% off purchases as well as their ever so amazing annual 21 Days of Beauty Event! More than that, their points reward system is AMAZING.

Earn Extra Cash and Gift Cards | Two Simple and Easy Ways

Happy Friday friends! What better way to kick off the weekend than learning about two easy peasy ways to earn extra cash and gift cards?! If you’ve been following me for quite some time, you won’t be surprised with the two websites I’m about to share. These are methods I’ve used for YEARS and they have been so great for my wallet!

Some of you may have seen posts like this before and wondered if they’re actually work or not and I am so positive they will work for you if you give them a chance. It’s important to remember what you gain depends on the amount of time you put in. For example, using these method once a month isn’t going to help much BUT you don’t need to be putting in hours and hours worth of time daily either.

Instagram | How To Grow and Build A Loyal Audience

Instagram used to be my favorite social media platform but the algorithm and other recent updates lately have made using it incredibly frustrating. Earlier in the year, I thought I was the only one feeling like engagement had gone down but a few friends had mentioned they saw a stunt in engagement as well. Fast forward to end of Spring, engagement became worse and growth almost nonexistent. At first I thought, what in the world did I do? I was posting consistently and I thought the quality of my photos were pretty darn good for someone who had 0 experience with photography.

Fortunately (and unfortunately) lack in growth and engagement was an issue for nearly 90% of the people I followed as well as others I’ve seen in different niches. It sucks but rather than moping around (okay I still do this LOL) I began to do TONS of research. After months and months of reading articles and talking to dozens of Instagrammers, I think I can offer a few tips on how grow and build a loyal audience.
