I know I talk a lot about online shopping, being active online all day has it’s perks. I used to enjoy going to malls to shop, more than shopping online, but lately I have really been leaning more towards online shopping. Although shopping in a store has benefits, such as trying on and seeing the product physically, online shopping also has it’s perks, no lines or dealing with huge holiday crowds.
I usually won’t go shopping unless it’s during the week, in the evenings or online, especially for the holidays. With Black Friday and Cyber Monday next week, the sales are better than ever, and most of the time the same deals are also available online! Why would you go out in the Black Friday madness when you can get the same deal with the click of a button at home? I just found the cutest discounted Coach handbags online, at home in my pjs! Most times stores will have exclusive deals for online shoppers, which is how I got my Coach bags. I just haven’t’ decided if I will keep them or give them as gifts, like my plan was
I plead guilty to being highly addicted to Instagram. I think I like it better than Facebook, there I said it. Can you relate? I love Instagram because it’s only images, not annoying status updates. I don’t even mind businesses on Instagram because they are showcasing themselves through images, rather than pushy marketing tactics. Whether you manage a business on Instagram or just update your own daily, here are some ways you can increase your likes.
When I saw this infographic I found it very interesting, but not surprising. I notice on my own images that I get more likes on simplistic, light photos. I get a lot of likes for my dog and outdoor scenery pics as well as outfits, #ootd (look familiar?) This Infographic lays out nicely the dos and don’t for Instagram to get you more likes on your images and followers. This article was also interesting, check it out here.
When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, I’m working on it. Rather than completely changing my lifestyle overnight I’m making small strides to live a long lasting healthy life. I have been incorporating more vegetables and organic meats into my diet and trying to exercise 3-4 times per week. I don’t want to drastically change because I know I won’t keep up with it. I’m not willing to cut out snacks or “bad foods” forever. I still love my pizza and candy!
I have also been making my own soaps and lotions to get away from store bought products with unknown ingredients. I have noticed my skin is much more hydrated and I will continue making my own beauty goods. I have also started to get regular massages and body treatments Huntington Beach offers. By pushing out toxins in my body with body treatments, such as a body wrap, along with regular exercise, I have noticed I haven’t been sick yet. It just goes to show that when you make small steps, you stick with the plan. Start by adding more vitamins to your diet, drinking more water, or walking every morning. Although these seem like miniscule tasks, you will convert to a healthier lifestyle that sticks.
According to the Wall Street Journal, almost 1/3 of American adults have had their profiles hacked, have you? I know it has happened to me a few times. I have had it happen on Facebook, Twitter and even my email. I usually didn’t find out until it was brought to my attention by a friend that had received a spammy email, or a status update they saw in their news feed. I think it’s weird that you don’t even realize your account has been hacked until someone lets you know personally.
To avoid this from happening to you, make sure you change your passwords often. I’m notorious for keeping the same password forever, as long as they let me. I have tons of passwords to remember so keeping the same one is easiest, but it’s also the most hack worthy. When on a friends computer, tablet or mobile device, make sure to log out and don’t click on the check mark “keep me signed in”. You don’t want to have multiple ways for hackers to get into your account. Keep yourself logged into one device if possible. Keep track of the activity on your profile and when you do notice something, change your password!
