How to: New bloggers, grow your influence!

One of the most common questions I get is: how do I get sent free products and invited to events? The answer: aside from straight up reaching out to specific brands and PR agencies, the best way to get started while you're growing and increasing your following is to join as many influencer PR platforms/apps as you can.

City Guide: Portland

Portland has always been one of my favorite cities: it's incredibly clean and green, it's foodie heaven, and everyone there is super weird. What's not to love!

Blooms + tassels + first time bloggers

One of my favorite things to do is take photos of bloggers who haven't worked with a professional photographer before. The vibe is a mixture of excitement, anxiety, and endless possibility, which is intoxicating. It's so fun to answer questions and guide them through the experience, while also watching progress into getting comfortable, having fun, and finding the rhythm of being in front of a professional camera.

Mixing fashion with killer views

I love it when bloggers want to step out of the box and try something different, so when Christina (classtige.com) asked if there were any city views where we could shoot, I knew just the place!

Styling with Lauren: Uniqlo all day

Lauren of pinkonthecheek.com recently styled a full outfit just from Uniqlo! Honestly, I kind of thought that Uniqlo only had super casual activewear, but apparently, they now also have seriously stylish pieces for the office and going out, called the Drape Collection. I love the way that Lauren styled boyfriend jeans with a long blazer - it's so comfortable but looks put together.
