What's In My Purse

* This post contains affiliate links. Please refer to my disclaimer for more information.

Personally, I think one of the best purchases a woman can get herself is a new purse. A purse is the perfect accessory to any outfit, and can really allow a woman to express her sense of style. Plus, it holds all of the random crap that we think we need.

I just recently bought myself a new bag, but before I clicked the "order" button, I did a ton of research because I'm very much Type A. I needed to make sure this purse wouldn't go out of style, and would be able to withstand all of the love it would be given. You'd be surprised what I keep on me at all times, and I needed a purse that could keep up.

The Pros and Cons to Living Alone

I can't believe that I've been in Columbus for two full years. I just resigned my lease for the third time and it hit me how I haven't had a roommate since college. Not that I'm complaining, flyin' solo is a life that I chose for myself.

I've definitely loved living on my own, but when I got the offer to move into a two bedroom apartment in my complex with discounted rent, you bet your ass that I considered it. Having a roommate would save me $300 a month, but then I'd have to share a space. So many things to consider.

How to Become A Social Media Influencer

Influencer marketing, if you're on any kind of social media and follow any celebrities, there is a good chance you've experienced it. Everyone is out there trying to get you to use their coupon code to get a wooden watch or a box of clothes or gummy vitamins to make your hair grow. (I know I'm guilty of this, check out my "referrals" tab on my blog navigation.)

But how does one become a social media influencer, besides being famous?

Columbus Spotlight: Studio614

* I received this opportunity free of charge courtesy of Yelp Elite. This blog post was not required.

While I am an engineer by degree, I do have a crafty side. Pinterest is probably one of my favorite inspiration websites, and because of that, I am able to challenge myself with some interesting DIYs. Recently, thanks to Yelp Elite, I got to attend my first string art class at Studio614, an art studio right near Ohio State's campus.

Instagram Story Tips + Tricks to Make You Look like a Pro

If you couldn't tell, Instagram is probably my favorite social media platform, but it can also be super intimidating. Everyone always wants to post the best photos and have the most aesthetically pleasing feed, including me. The one thing I love about Instagram is the "stories". Stories are where I can be real and open about what I'm doing every day, and explain a little more than a photo tile.

I've been asked a handful of times how I make my Instagram stories eye-catching, engaging, and awesome. The truth is that I am really good at finding out things via the internet, trial and error, and random luck. In this blog post, I'm going to share some of the tips and tricks to posting quality Instagram stories.
