Why Delegating Is Key To Running A Successful Online Business In 2018

September 7th, 2018

I realized the other day that it had been quite some time since my last blogging post, and I instantly felt the need to sit down and write a post to shed some light on my business for other bloggers out there or readers trying to launch a blog. When I first started blogging I got all my tips and tricks for how to scale my business from my marketing professors in college, from emailing bloggers and most importantly reading other blogs; so I knew I always wanted to carve out space on my blog to shed some…

Why I’ll Never Stop Blogging & Why I Love It

July 16th, 2018

You can thank Instagram’s innovative features for inspiring this blog post today. Last Monday I decided to try out Instagram’s new ‘ask me anything feature’ and while I wasn’t sure what type of questions I’d get, or if I’d get any, I was very surprised when I saw a bunch of blogging related questions roll in. I was shocked but thrilled because blogging means so much to me and I was happy that it wasn’t a dying art form, which is how it can feel sometimes. A lot has changed since I started blogging and a lot of that…

What’s In My Camera Bag

June 21st, 2018

  This post is long overdue, but better late than never right! Today we are breaking down what’s in my camera bag, via blog post and video! I kid you not when I say having a fully loaded bag can help you accomplish a successful shoot day. I mean, you know how they say success is when preparation and opportunity meet, well it’s actually true; a lot of the time our blog shoot’s success comes down to simply being prepared and anticipating any situation whether that be rain, shine or 100-degree temperatures. Now, since I know a lot…

5 Apps I Can’t Live Without, When It Comes To Running A Blog

June 4th, 2018

Seven days a week, from 9 AM till 11 PM, I basically never put down my phone. I hate admitting that but it’s the truth, I mean technically I could run my whole business from my phone and who knows, maybe someday I will, you never know. Anway working for myself allows me the freedom to work when I want and where I want, which makes having my phone on hand, organized and charged ideal. Whether I get an email that needs an immediate response or become overwhelmed with a blog post idea and decide to write the…

5 Reasons You Should Take Your Coffee Break Outside

November 3rd, 2017

Dress (sold out, similar version without zippers linked) || Coat (ON SALE) || TIghts || Boots ||  Necklace You guys, it’s here, well not quite but it’s right around the corner…it’s ALMOST the busiest time of the year. It’s not only busy for retail employees but for basically everyone. From workers (the TCC Crew is jammed) to students (finals and term papers); to say this time of year is exhilarating is an understatement but don’t let the craziness of this holiday season wear you down.  & while I’m 100% one to dive headfirst into overloading on work, I have to…

When to say no, in business & life

September 15th, 2017

Jean Dress (on sale for $99!) || Shoes || Jacket || Necklace || Camera Overall, I love every aspect of my job and I’m very fortunate for that. This doesn’t mean that I’m good at every aspect, but I love being challenged. Whether that means learning a new photo editing tool, researching a new social media platform or dipping my toes into vlogging; my job is interesting because it challenges me, and boy did it challenge me the other day.  A big part of my job is working with PR firms and brands, both of which I love doing. I would…

How to come up with content, for your blog

August 23rd, 2017

Dress || Shoes || Lipstick || Earrings || Purse   The other day I was driving with my dad in the car, and he asked me a very important question. He asked me ‘how I keep coming up with new blog posts and when I think I’ll run out of content.’   Now content can mean many things, but in today’s Instagram focused world, I think people put too much value on pictures over written content. Today we are hitting the pause button on image based content and chatting about written content, which is really what allows readers to get to know…

How To Edit Your Blog Photos

July 27th, 2017

Dress (comes in white & navy) || Bag || Shoes || Sunglasses || Earrings Matt & I receive one to three emails a day, from readers requesting a tutorial on how we edit our photos.  I’ve kind of postponed sharing this topic on The TCC, because it can be quite cumbersome to break down and explain, via writing.  At first, I was split, I felt like maybe it would be easiest to show you guys this process on Instagram live, although I wanted the content to be available to you all, later down the line.  So I decided to…
