Weekly Wrap Up

Oct 24, 2014

What a wonderful and busy week it's been. I've been working on a few new projects, and loving it! How about a little update? Several months ago I started consulting for a few start up businesses. I typically do a review of their branding, blog strategy and social media campaign. Most recently, I started managing social media for an eco-luxury PR company. What fun, right?! On top of my blogging experience, I also have a degree in business, so this is absolutely feeling like a great fit. I'm excited to continue growing in this venture and eventually offer my services online too!

Photos from our week: 1) Our little Sunshine, love this tranquil portrait, especially because she's usually on the move! 2) Complete and utter splendor. We stared at the sky until the sun went down! 3) My new obsession, making prints and adorable graphics. 4) New pillows for the living room!

Mixing it up today and sharing my favourite "By The Shore" posts:

Working from home and a how to guide on staying inspired!
♥ Sharing my everyday make-up routine!
♥ Aw, haha, our first vlog. And pumpkin... breaks my heart he's no longer with us!
♥ My most asked blog question? My hair! I spill all in this post! ;)
♥ One of my fave outfit posts. Can't wait to wear this again for fall/winter, so cute, right?!

Inspired by: Growth, and keeping myself challenged. I just recently started taking a course on personal & business branding. Can't wait to share more with you!

On the horizon: Next week, I'm kicking off a fun new series on the blog. Tips on how to blog effectively, build your audience, create engaged content and work with sponsors. I'll also be following up each session with a vlog... where I'll be answering all your questions. Cant wait! 

15 sweet notes:

  1. What an exciting time for you! Your pictures are lovely, and I really like that print you made. Somehow, it makes me think of Spring and Winter :)

  6. That Sunshine - what a cutie! I'll never forget when she poked her little nose out from under your couch, grabbed her treat and then snuck back to safety. Smart cookie ;) And my gosh, it's crazy how long it's been since you did that first blog, so fun to go back and watch it again. But even better will be seeing you in person again so soon!
    xox,

  12. Ahhhh, you just take the loveliest pictures! It's really cool that you're starting to put together words and pictures to make prints! Are you gonna sell those on Etsy, too? Also, your cat is just the cutest!

  13. Ooo I'm curious to hear your tips on personal and business branding- that's always slightly elusive to me. And how wonderful that you started this consulting venture! I feel like you're so amazing at creating a brand and really setting your blog apart from the rest, so I can see how you'd be a powerful asset to any business.

    Also, I'm all over that hair post.

  14. Gwen, oh my gosh, sorry for the late response! As for selling my prints on Etsy? No plans yet... so far I've just been making prints for fun and displaying them in our home + giving a few to friends!! And yes, isn't Sunshine a little darling? She's lying next to me and purring as we speak. Awwww!! xoxo
