Happy Friday! Happy March! March is one of my favorite months. Why? Because it’s my birthday month! Woot, woot! 🙂
Can we just talk about Juniper’s face for a second here? It doesn’t look like she’s too excited for March, haha. Seriously! She was such a grumpy ham the entire time I was trying to shoot photos with her.
Let’s dig into this month’s First Friday, shall we?!
QUESTION & ANSWER:
What’s your favorite candy? My answer to this question used to change form time to time, but for years now it’s been Charlestown Chew and over the past 6 months I have also become obsessed with Lemonheads!
What are you doing for your birthday? I’ll be celebrating in NYC! My birthday is on the 16th which is a Friday this year, so Michael and I are heading up to the city the day before. NYC is one of my favorite places on earth so I am ecstatic to celebrate my 25th in the city!
How’d you reach your current number of followers on Instagram? What’s the best way to grow an organic following? I just finally reached 10k on Instagram and it was a goal that took me a few years to reach. It didn’t happen overnight. It took a lot of time and strategy to get there, especially with the messy algorithms and changes Instagram is always implementing. Honestly, the best way to grow an organic following is by engaging! You can’t expect to grow just from posting pretty pictures with fun captions. You need to be active and engaging with your community, as well as branching out to find those you’d like to engage with.
PRODUCTS I’M CURRENTLY LOVING:
Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation // I have always been an advocate for drugstore beauty products. Some drugstore brands are completely underrated, like Rimmel London. Their new Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation is by far one of my favorite products of theirs now. It’s light-weight with great coverage and has SPF2o!
Fossil’s Ryder Satchel // This bag is one of the best ones I have ever owned. It’s a multitasker’s daydream. It’s extremely compact and has a spot for everything. Plus, the entire design and colors are perfect. It’s a great satchel for springtime!
EOS Lip Spheres // I have been a fan of EOS since they first launched and this is one of their newest products. It’s hydrating and nourishing and the best part is that it’s wax-free. Plus, I love how cute and compact it is!
