My top tips for social media

My top tips for social media

As I look to teach my second class on social media and blogging for businesses next month, I thought it was about time I backed this up with an actual blog on the topic! Time seems to be slipping away from me at the moment, but this is always one topic I find very easy to discuss and share with others. My biggest hope is that more people will get on board with the power of social media and blogging (especially in Jersey) so that together we can make some positive change and share inspiring stories together. From my time as a blogger and getting to grips with this ever-changing world, here's what I've learnt about social media that may help you.

The year nipples got big!

The year nipples got big!

I may be coming in a little late to the whole nipple debate, but this season they are so big (figuratively speaking) that its become very hard to ignore them.

Why blog?

It’s been a while since I talked about my new found career as a writer and blogger, and while there can’t be many left that haven’t heard me harp on about how much I love it, I thought maybe we were due a recap!

In these cold months, it's hard to give much thought to your underwear unless it comes with in-built heating or a thermal layer. But new Jersey brand, Hidden Beneath Underwear, is set to get everyone a little hot under the collar, no matter what the thermometer says.

Why we all love a good pop-up!

Why we all love a good pop-up!

Secretive, exclusive and blink-and-you-miss-them, pop-up stores are the mystery we’ve all been searching for to reignite our love of retail. My work colleague is a pop-up addict. It doesn’t matter what they’re selling, simply marketing the event as “pop-up” has already grabbed her 25 year old millennial attention. But she’s not the only one keen to explore the phenomenon further. What is it about the marketing concept that has us all so excited? Why is it that everything in life is better in pop-up form?

Who to follow in 2018

Who to follow in 2018

This Christmas, me and my friend decided to give someone the gift of Instagram. We set up an account for her, gave her a snazzy profile and then handed over the reigns to her new-found life. With 800 million users now on the mobile photo sharing network, Instagram is one of the fastest growing social media platforms out there and rightly so, it's great fun! But, it can be hard to find those feeds you really want to follow, the picture that really is a perfect fit for your life.
