A little travel, life and fashion Q&A. I want to answer them ALL.
How does the whole working with brands thing work for you?
Back when I first started blogging, I was definitely afraid to reach out to brands. So I joined some affiliate programs (Shopstyle and rewardStyle) and then some marketing programs that hook influencers up with campaigns from different brands. After a while, I took the plunge and started pitching myself to brands I wanted to work with. I’m actually pretty comfortable pitching to brands – I’m confident in what kind of content I can deliver, my numbers, and myself in general. I think that comes across in my pitches. PLUS, what’s the worst a brand can say? No? The reward always outweighs the risk. Is this something more of you are interested in learning about? Let me know your thoughts – I’m so open to writing about how to pitch yourself as a blogger!
I’m going on a bachelorette party in two weeks and want some easy things to wear. Where would you shop?
So fun! Since I dress more on the “conservative” side when it comes to going out. ASOS is by far my favorite retailer for “going out outfits”! I also love Shein and Tobi when it comes to getting things that I wouldn’t typically wear – so I don’t want to drop a ton of money on certain things. I usually get crop tops with high waisted denim, skirts or shorts. There are always really cute rompers out there too!
PS: Are you signed up for The Weekend Toast? I’ve loved writing all my life, so this new exclusive content is a great opportunity to expand Pink Champagne Problems…and for you to get to know me on another level. I would LOVE for you to subscribe! (Don’t worry, I will never spam your inbox!) A little preview: I talk about everything from my job to time management, and so much more! Oh, and I always find something to toast to!

Weekend plans, anyone?
Today I’m laying SO low. As in not moving a muscle. I have a lot of back end work to do for Pink Champagne Problems (invoicing, scheduling, project updates, etc.), and I’m trying to get ahead of things before heading to South Carolina on Tuesday! Oh and totally finish 13 Reasons Why – have you watched?
On Saturday, I’m heading back to Primark to browse their current selection with Refinery 29. Be sure to follow along on Instagram Stories! Then, I’m spending the day with my sister and my brother-in-law at their house before we all head down the shore for the night. It’s supposed to be beautiful here this weekend, so I’m excited to possibly get some pre-vacation sunning in;)
