I was surrounded by an extremely negative energy that was draining and sucking the life out of me day after day. In addition to that, working in a cluttered space at my parent's house was doing nothing more than killing my productivity.⁠ I quickly started to grow more hostile and depressed without realizing it.⁠   After officially moving to Toronto and breaking free from that negative energy, I immediately felt better and happier. ⁠ 𝗦𝘁𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝘀𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗼𝘂𝘀𝗹𝘆…

    My Top 5 Go-To Resources That Help Me Be Most Productive

    Here are a list of some of my favorite tools to use when it comes to productivity. Trello ​I love using Trello to create my dream board, plan out new blog content, manage any ideas that pop into my head or simply to organize my goals and tasks to take on for the week. I also like to use my Google Calendar to give myself an overview of what I need to get done & put reminders. ​ Tailwind & Later I use both in conjunction with one another. They are both social media schedulers that each have their own pros and cons. I am still testing the waters between which…

    What I’ve Learned Hosting our First Major Custom Beauty & Networking Event

    How to be Successful at Hosting Your Next Event I'm so proud to say that our Custom Beauty Workshop was a HUGE success! All thanks to @petitewithbuns and @_cyncoco After this workshop, I was so drained that I even took the day off from work just to relax because prior to this event, I was meeting up with at least one new person every day that week. I often forget my limits and that in the end, I'm still an introvert. One that gets drained from too much social interaction. This makes sense, because socializing expends energy: You have to talk, listen, and process what’s being said, among other things. I was so…

    The Venture Update

    Hello my lovelies! How are you liking the new website revamp? Honestly, I revamped it because I really wanted to transfer my website from Weebly to Wordpress. It was better for SEO in the long run and has much better plugins. However, I didn't know of any way to directly transfer my site without having to start over from scratch and migrate everything manually (I asked the rep, they advised me it was not possible). So I ended up having to redesign my entire website! I mean, it wasn't a big deal. I actually like designing websites and mine ended up turning out better than expected so I'm quite happy…

    The Secret to How I Plan My Content on Instagram: Later Vs Tailwind

    Social media planning can be a daunting task especially for someone who is just starting off a brand new account. Trust me, I know and I've been there. You know you have to be consistent with it but sometimes there are days where you just don't know what to post. Hence, why having a content planner is a must. You want to schedule and plan your posts at least a few days or even weeks in advance to avoid the mishap of posting simply for the sake of posting. Once you begin to run out of content and start to post  whatever just to fill up your feed well guess what,…
