All jazzed up & smiley today because I was able to get a bunch of work done. Monday’s a crafty bitch like that. You kind of love her because she makes you feel great at the end but at the same time want to stab her because EW…You get it, MONDAY MORNING typically projectile vomits on all of us.

I wanted to touch on a little somethin’ somethin’.

A lot of you badasses have e-mailed me about starting a blog.

Well, here is my advice.

It’s very simple.

The truth is— there is no specific tip. Do whatever the hell inspires you & write your little heart out.

Let your voice shine through the screen. And for God’s sake be YOU. Be different. There’s only one you & you are different.

In my opinion bloggers that succeed, succeed because they let their personalities shine through. Don’t do someone else’s formula, do YOURS.

& most importantly: DO IT.

Just fucking start.

Start tomorrow.

Why the hell not?

Chances are your blog won’t be an overnight success, but what the hell is even an overnight success anyway?

The truth is you are you & you are fabulous, so pull the trigger & JUST DO IT.

On that note, if you guys are interested I will post more blogger tips & tricks. Let me know if that tickles your fancy below.

Lastly, for those of you headed to Create + Cultivate this weekend, I just found out that I’m not only speaking on branding/blogging, but also hosting a Flat Lay Tutorial ( what up, Instagram lovers ) at Bar III popup. If you’ve always wondered how to create this indispensable marketing tool, grab a drink & head over to say HI & learn about flat lays. FUN! Details here. Who’s going?

Literally exhausted from working since 6 AM so I’m going to zone out with some warm turmeric milk & a juicy book.

See you on Snapchat, lauryn x

HOLIDAY HOMEMADE POTPOURRI


{ subscribe to TSC YouTube channel }

Hi, hi, hi.

A lot of you guys asked me on Snapchat to recreate the mini homemade potpourri tutorial that I shared in an installment of ‘TSC Snaps’ a few weeks ago. I figured it’d be easiest to just SHOW you guys via video.

So ta-da.

If you don’t have this little mixture simmering on the stove this season, you’re really missing out.

My entire house smells like cloves, cinnamon, & Christmas 24/7. I kind of love it. No candles, just real deal natural festive scents.

For more mini series like this, come follow along on Snapchat!! Username is laurynevarts. See you there & HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
