6 Ways For Using Twitter To Grow Your Blog

It is so strange to think I have been on twitter since about 2007 give or take, it was in the beginning. I no longer have that account and made a new one in 2015. I can’t remember what the reason was for, but I’ve been on twitter a long time. These last few years Twitter has been so helpful with growing my blog I even wrote a blog post it here 3 Reasons why is my blogs best friend. I wanted to share with you some tips that I found helpful to bring more traffic to your blog.
6 Ways For Using Twitter To Grow Your Blog

Following Others 

Following others is a great way of connecting with others and building a community. There are no rules on following each other on twitter. But I would recommend that you follow people that you want to follow since it is your feed that your seeing. I would also recommend to follow a verity of people that are similar to your interests. If that makes sense. You might find someone that you normally wouldn’t follow this way. I know I have a few that I’ve found this way. 
Following threads are nice to participate in and can get you a nice amount of new followers. Basically these are done by someone tweeting an announcement of their follow thread, asking you to follow them and to retweet their tweet, and then you follow all others who have retweeted the tweet. I like to do these throughout the month but paced out so it doesn’t like to spammy. 
Again my advise would be, only follow people that interests you, and that you find to be enjoyable. you are not required to follow anyone you don’t want to.

Engagement

Link dropping and nothing else can look spammy. I know we all have lives and twitter might get put on the back burner. Even of you pop on for a few mins and send a tweet out, retweet somebody or like a tweet. Anything. Some kind of engagement is better than nothing. You can ask questions that may not even be related to blogging. Silly thoughts that may of come to mind or maybe something that happened that day. 

Retweeting 

Retweeting is that best way to show other bloggers support. Retweet their blog posts, leave them comments. Let them know you like their content! See anything else that your followers may like? Retweet it! I have a lot of UK followers and will retweet tweets that I think someone will appreciate.  

RT Accounts 

RT accounts are great! Using the hashtags of the RT accounts your tweets/posts are getting more exposure then they would of alone. Which is great for discovering new bloggers. When you follow RT accounts, you see all of the blog posts you might not have been able to see on your own. 
Some shameless plugging here. I run Bloggingbeesrt, which retweets your blog posts to other bloggers. We have been up and running for a whole year now January 3rd. We have weekly threads which are, Recent Blog Posts Mondays , Wednesday Instagrams, Blogger Train Friday and Free for all Saturday. 

Hashtags 

Hashtags allow people who don’t follow you to see your tweets. But you don’t want to over do it and use too many. No more then 10 hashtags is best and use hashtags that are relatable to your post. It is so annoying when searching and having tweets/posts that have nothing to to with what you are looking for. 

Schedule Tweets

Scheduling tweets in advance saves so much time, and has allowed me to promote my blog posts in the background. For a while now I have been using solely  Hootsuite  and schedule a week worth of tweets so that I have more free time and not always on social media.

Insert Menstruation Cup Here -Why I Made The Switch

For months I have been wanting to make this post after I made the switch last March from tampons and liners to a menstruation cup. I hated pads, they always felt like I was wearing a diaper. Not to mention in the summer, when it’s hot and sweaty. Ew, no thanks. Tampons did make my periods better and gave me more freedom but there were times they were just uncomfortable, like inside and they can leak. Liners where for the days I knew it will be starting or at the end. 




Soo what is a menstrual cup?

A menstrual cup is a type of reusable feminine hygiene product. It’s a small, flexible funnel-shaped cup made of rubber or silicone that you insert into your vagina to catch and collect period fluid.

How to use a menstrual cup

If you’re interested in using a menstrual cup, talk with your gynecologist. You can buy one on online or in most stores, you need to find out what size you need. Most menstrual cup brands have a small and large size.
To figure out the right menstrual cup size for you, you and your doctor should consider:
  • your age
  • length of your cervix
  • whether or not you have a heavy flow
  • firmness and flexibility of the cup
  • cup capacity
  • strength of your pelvic floor muscles
  • if you’ve given birth vaginally
Smaller menstrual cups are usually recommended for women younger than 30 years old who haven’t delivered vaginally. Larger sizes are often recommended for women who are over 30 years old, have given birth vaginally, or have a heavier period.

Before you put in your menstrual cup

When you use a menstrual cup for the first time, it may feel uncomfortable. Before you put in your cup, lubricate the rim with water or a water-based lube (lubricant). A wet menstrual cup is much easier to insert.

How to put in your menstrual cup

If you can put in a tampon, you should find it easy to insert a menstrual cup. Just follow these steps :
  1. Wash your hands thoroughly.
  2. Apply water or a water-based lube to the rim of the cup.
  3. Tightly fold the menstrual cup in half, holding it in one hand with the rim facing up.
  4. Insert the cup, rim up, into your vagina like you would a tampon without an applicator. It should sit a few inches below your cervix.
  5. Once the cup is in your vagina, rotate it. It will spring open to create an airtight seal that stops leaks.
You shouldn’t feel your menstrual cup if you’ve inserted the cup correctly. You should also be able to move, jump, sit, stand, and do other everyday activities without your cup falling out. If you’re having trouble putting in your cup, speak with your doctor.

When to take your menstrual cup out

You can wear a menstrual cup for 6 to 12 hours, depending on whether or not you have a heavy flow. This means you can use a cup for overnight protection. 
You should always remove your menstrual cup by the 12-hour mark. If it becomes full before then, you’ll have to empty it ahead of schedule to avoid leaks.

How to take your menstrual cup out

To take out a menstrual cup, just follow these steps:
  1. Wash your hands thoroughly.
  2. Place your index finger and thumb into your vagina. Pull the stem of the cup gently until you can reach the base.
  3. Pinch the base to release the seal and pull down to remove the cup.
  4. Once it’s out, empty the cup into the sink or toilet.
  5. Rise well and make sure to clean any groves. 

Cup aftercare

Reusable menstrual cups should be washed and wiped clean before being reinserted into your vagina. Your cup should be emptied at least twice a day. Reusable menstrual cups are durable and can last for 6 months to 10 years with proper care. 

How much does it cost?

Menstrual cups are more cost-effective than tampons and pads. You can pay roughly $20 to $40 for a cup and not have to purchase another one for at least six months. Tampons and pads can cost up to $50 to $150 a year, depending on how often, long, and heavy your period is.

My thoughts 

Since I have made the switch to my Diva Cup. Holy Balls! It has been a life changing experience. I hardly feel the cup, once I trimmed the stem and it settles in. Honesty I forget sometime I have my period. The best part, absolutely no leaks. Let me say that again. No Leaks. Nothing. You can wear your cute undies and not worry about ruining them. Or the bed sheets. Unless it wasn’t inserted right. Which does happen sometimes and is easy to fix by reinserting. 
I have also saved so much money since buying and switching from tampons and liners to my diva cup. You also save on creating zero waste for the environment, since it is reusable. There is much lower chance of Toxic Shock Syndrome, since it is being collected and not absorbed. I really only have to empty it once in the morning and once before bed. I love mine. I can’t express it enough. 
I will admit I still have liners tampons leftover from when I was using them and I had stocked up on them. I gave a majority of them to family members. I did keep some for my purse just in case my period starts early and I happen to be out and bout. Since last March I’ve only had to use them once, because it decided to start like 3-4 days early and I don’t like the idea of tossing my cup in my purse, even in its little bag or wearing it days before. 
I have said this before but I love mine. It was worth the try and switching. I will never go back to tampons. Ever. I feel any one with a vagina should at lest give a mensural cup a try. 
Thanks for reading!

December Favorites

December Favorites




Static nails

These puppies stayed on for not 1 or 2 or even 3 weeks but 4! 4 weeks they stayed on. Holy. Fuck. They say you can reuse them but after I took them off i thought it was better to get rid of them. I must of used a little too much glue because there was quite a bit of glue under the nail. I bought these

Overtone

I bought the Plumberry Kit with the extreme pink and vibrant purple. I decided to put some of the extreme pink over the dusty pink color I had and holy pink! I mean pink. Barbie pink. Its been a little over a month and its fading very nicely. I think my favorite part of coloring your hair a fun color is the fade out. Basically Overtone is a conditioning treatment with color and extra-hydrating ingredients.

Urban Decay Heat

I bought the Urban Decay Heat palette during a black friday sale from ulta for 50% off. Normally $54 and I got it for $27. The colors are gorgeous colors and they blend so well. I can use this palette with no primer if I choose to. 

GlowSpin : Premium Facial Cleansing System

I have been loving this Spin Brush. This was another black friday sale from Vanity Planet. It came with 3 brush heads- daily cleansing facial brush, exfoliating facial brush, and silicone facial brush and 2 settings a lower speed for a gentle, everyday cleanse, or a higher speed for deeper exfoliation. My skin has been looking great for the past month since i have been using it.

2017 Beauty Favorites That I cannot Live without


2017 Beauty Favorites That I cannot Live without


If any of these products were to be stopped. I would cry. That’s how much I LOVE them. I have not found any other products that give me the results that they do. I reach for them just about everyday. So I thought I would share with you my favorites that I cannot live without.

Face

I had a coupon and want to try something that a lot of people were talking about. It takes off all of my makeup and does a good job getting everything. Even on days I don’t wear makeup, I still use this on my face. I have about a third left in the bottle and will be buying more.
Holy cow! This worked so well on my acne and scarring it’s unreal. It really gets into the pore and cleans them out. I love how it makes my face after washing it. It smells great as well.
One of my favorite mask for calming down acne. It feels refreshing and cool when you apply. I’ve notice less redness and small zits the next morning when using.
Definitely a daily staple for me. I use this twice a day and it has helped with dryness from the winter, makes my makeup look great and not cakey because of the cold weather. Thanks winter. It also soaks in fast and leaves your skin so soft. Plus you can use it in your hair and body.
I wanted to give a facial brush a try and happen to see one at walmart while I was shopping. I paid only $6 for it and think it was well worth the money. I do plan on upgrading to one that has more brushes but not sure when that will be.

Hair

This puppy soaks up any oil and makes your hair feeling great. This is the best dry shampoo so far that I have tried. Also smells awesome!
Two things. 1 My favorite smell EVER. 2 Volume. Not much more I can say besides it’s natural and doesn’t has all that chemical crap in it. It does a amazing job on my fine hair. I will be needing a new bottle soon.

Body

If it wasn’t weird, I would let everyone feels how soft my legs feel after shaving with this. And it smells great!
I hope you enjoyed reading this post. What are some of your favorites?

Goals 2019


2017 Beauty Favorites That I cannot Live without

So we are now reaching another new year, and most people are making Resolutions or goals for the new year. My list of goals is nothing crazy or to hard to do, and I don’t think I did a bad job in 2018. I mainly wanted to make a list of things I want to improve on in 2019. Which you can read here, about what they where. So here is a list of things I would like to change or work towards in 2019.

Health 

  • No soda. The only time I really have soda, which is diet, is when we go out to eat or sometimes when I’m at work. We don’t normally buy it. 
  • Eat Cleaner. Just be healthy. Make smarter choices. I don’t normally eat a lot of sweets , since I am a type one diabetic. 
  • Workout. According to my Fitbit the days I work I get in about 20,000 steps in a day. I would still like to add a minimum of 3 days of yoga or some type of workout. 
  • Drink even more water. I have been filling up my 16oz bottle 1-2 times a day. So I would like to add filling it up one more time through out the day. 
  • Essential oils. I have so many and I really should use them more in my diffuser. They are so nice if I don’t want to burn a candle and or i want to fall asleep to and are something that I really enjoy. 

Self Care 

  • Read 19 books for 2018. I hit my goal for 2018, which was to read 18 books. 
  • GROW MY HAIR OUT. NO MORE PIXIE. I was so close to hitting my goal in the summer and then I found scissors. 
  • Read tarot daily. The last few months I have been slacking. Right now I am blaming the holidays. 
  • Utilize my planners more, I would love to fill them up completely. I really want to be able to look through them next year. 
  • Journal everyday. Big or small. 
  • Create more. I hardly did any art in 2018. Very sad , and I have so many ideas. 

Social Media 

  • Blog once a week. I haven’t been doing a bad job so far and I think once a week works well for me, sometimes if I have the time I post twice a week. 
  • Get 500 followers on Instagram. I have been stuck around 400-440 since summer of 2017! I feel I post more to my stories, I don’t seem to get the likes I use to get. Also I’m not sure what direction to go with my feed. Keeping it personal or keep a theme. 
  • More constituent schedule with the Blogging RT account I run on twitter, BloggingBeesRT. So far we have over 1000 followers twitter and I am hoping to grow it even more! 
So those are my goals for 2019! I would love to read any goals that you might have!

2019 Reading List

2019 Reading List




Here is my reading list for 2019. I met my reading challenge of 18 books in  2018 and I am aiming for 19 in 2019. Some of the books that are on my list  for 2018 have made it to my list for 2019, I found other books to read at the time instead. I am hoping to read all of them this time, before reading others that I find that are not on the list.

A witch is a wise woman, a healer. Yet for so long the word ‘witch’ has had negative connotations.

The wheel of the year, the sabbats, the cycles of the moon.
Tools to enhance your intuition, including oracle cards and dowsing, so that you can make decisions quickly and comfortably.

How to work with herbs, crystals and power animals so that you have support in your spiritual work.

#GIRLBOSS

Amoruso spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and scrounging in dumpsters for leftover bagels. By age twenty-two she had dropped out of school, and was broke, directionless, and checking IDs in the lobby of an art school—a job she’d taken for the health insurance. It was in that lobby that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay.
Flash forward to today, and she’s the founder of Nasty Gal and the founder and CEO of Girlboss. Sophia was never a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she’s written #GIRLBOSS for other girls like her: outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is windy as all hell and lined with naysayers.
#GIRLBOSS proves that being successful isn’t about where you went to college or how popular you were in high school. It’s about trusting your instincts and following your gut; knowing which rules to follow and which to break; when to button up and when to let your freak flag fly.

Brave

Rose McGowan was born in one cult and came of age in another, more visible cult: Hollywood.
In a strange world where she was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them for profit.
Hollywood expected Rose to be silent and cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity and voice. She reemerged unscripted, courageous, victorious, angry, smart, fierce, unapologetic, controversial, and real as f*ck.
BRAVE is her raw, honest, and poignant memoir/manifesto—a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up and be BRAVE.

Dodging Energy Vampires: An Empath’s Guide to Evading Relationships That Drain You and Restoring Your Health and Power

Highly sensitive people—or empaths—see life through the eyes of compassion and caring. They were born that way. As a result, they carry a tremendous amount of inner light. But they’re also the favored prey of “vampires” who feed off empaths’ energy and disrupt their lives on every level—physical, emotional, and financial.
In Dodging Energy Vampires, Christiane Northrup, M.D., draws on the latest research in this exciting new field, along with stories from her global community and her own life, to explore the phenomenon of energy vampires and show us how we can spot them, dodge their tactics, and take back our own energy. You’ll delve into the dynamics of vampire-empath relationships and discover how vampires use others’ energy to fuel their own dysfunctional lives. Once you recognize the patterns of behavior that mark these relationships, you’ll be empowered to identify the vampires in your life too.

Of Witchcraft and Whimsy: A Beginner’s Guide to Basic Witchcraft

Witchcraft is one of those things it’s a bit hard to find advice on, as it is a bit strange in our times to go around asking people if they are witches. Even google is not helpful if you don’t know the questions to ask, which can often be the case when stumbling upon something new where everyone else seems to already be in the know. So here are a few questions and answers in case you needed either of them. 
This is a basic overview of witchcraft, what it is, the techniques and methods commonly used in it, as well as some simple spells, intended for the beginner witch.

The Year of Less: How I Stopped Shopping, Gave Away My Belongings, and Discovered Life Is Worth More Than Anything You Can Buy in a Store

In her late twenties, Cait Flanders found herself stuck in the consumerism cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. Even after she worked her way out of nearly $30,000 of consumer debt, her old habits took hold again. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy—only keeping her from meeting her goals—she decided to set herself a challenge: she would not shop for an entire year.
The Year of Less documents Cait’s life for twelve months during which she bought only consumables: groceries, toiletries, gas for her car. Along the way, she challenged herself to consume less of many other things besides shopping. She decluttered her apartment and got rid of 70 percent of her belongings; learned how to fix things rather than throw them away; researched the zero waste movement; and completed a television ban. At every stage, she learned that the less she consumed, the more fulfilled she felt.

Hidden Brilliance: A High-Achieving Introvert’s Guide to Self-Discovery, Leadership and Playing Big

High-achieving introverts feel the intense tug between the drive to achieve more and the need for solitude, between going out to conquer the world fighting with the desire to simply be alone. 
And there is an Achilles heel that every high-achieving introvert has: a keen sensitivity to inner critics, those voices telling us we aren’t enough of something—not good enough, qualified enough, attractive enough, smart enough. Everyone has inner critics, but some people seem able to move past them more easily than others. For those addicted to achievement, like high-achievers, this is the place where perfectionism breeds, and where nothing is ever enough. And the introvert’s tendency to spend hours a day, thinking, exacerbates the inner critic.

Blackout: How I Found My True Self Once I Logged Out Of Social Media

She spent over a decade in digital marketing helping produce award-winning advertising campaigns for top global clients. So to find her, lying on her itchy living room carpet, still in pajamas at noon, is to know she’s in a slump. The reason? The very medium she’d devoted her career to.
Our world speeds by these days, with push notifications serving as another tedious responsibility to take care of. But for all the chat rooms and status updates, Ahıskal felt disconnected, depressed. When did connection become a chore? When did we stop truly listening to one another? Was it possible to get that connection back?
She sought the answer to these questions by conducting the 28-day media detox in her debut title BLACKOUT. For four weeks – with the exception of one notable “peek” – she avoided social media, cable television, continuous-scroll newsfeeds, and other maddening digital content. The insight she gained was invaluable.
A page a day or chapter.

November Favorites

November Favorites



Here are  some of the things I really enjoyed  and reached for a lot in the month of November.

Pacifica Face Lotion 

I picked up 2 lotions by Pacifia one is a overnight Wake Up Beautiful Mask and the other is Kale Luxe Oil-Free Cream. The Kale Luxe, is good for helping  improve appearance of healthy skin texture, tone and brightness. Its also good for acne prone skin.  I apply after doing my nightly face routine, of washing and toning. Then right before bed for  little extra hydration, I apply the Wake Up Beautiful Mask on. Boy, does my face feels so soft when I wake up. I am loving this combo so far for winter. I have also noticed that my foundation doesn’t cling to any dry patches that I might have. 

Morphe Eyeshadow Palettes 

Both the Jacklyn Hill Palette & 35M Boss Mood Artistry Palette are to die for. The colors are gorgeous and buttery. I have no need for primer when I use ether palette and the staying power is great. I don’t know which one is my favorite out of the two, it would have to be a tie. I almost got the Jacklyn Hill Vault Collection  instead of the Boss Mood Palette, but then I saw the color story of it in the store and decided for the price and how many shadows you get compared to the 4 and it’s almost the same color story. I thought it was a win win. 

Always Cold Club Coffee Mug

I finally got my hands on a coffee tumbler by Girrlscout. I just love it! I have a few more of her items that are in her shop. I can’t wait for our trip next month to use my Overnight Shit bag, which goes great with my Face Shit  makeup bag. 





 Soph x Revolution Highlighter Palette 

I was in the need for a highlighter palette. The Soph x Revolution Palette  gives me 8 different options to pick from. I love the pink and purple highlight the most out of this palette. They add just a little extra something.

Design.Me Quickie Dry Shampoo & Puff  Me Up Light

I really like their Quicke Me Light  Dry Shampoo. I picked up the light one for blondes and pastel hair because I have a light pinkish purple color at the moment. It works really well at soaking up any oil I might have in my hair and makes it look so fresh. Puff Me Up Light  is one of my favorites to use to add volume to my hair. A couple of puffs  in my hair and we have some big hair. 

Sally Hansen 7 In 1 Nail Treatment 

So I had acrylic nails on for about 3 months (had fills done in that time) and finally it got to the point that they were starting to lift a bit on a few nails. I figured it was time to say goodbye and let my nails breathe. Since then I have been putting the Complete Care 7 in 1 Nail Treatment Sally Hansen. They are looking so much better now, I apply nightly  before bed.
