High Five for Friday

next
March Julep Box
Whew. It’s been a full week around here. 

I had something scheduled with friends every day this week, which was a lot of fun, but it put me a little behind in prepping things for the blog for next week. Thus, I shall work a bit this weekend.

The weather in Raleigh is beautiful. The sun is shining, there is a light breeze, and the drugstores are already running out of Claritin.



1. I decided to attend The Brand Market that’s coming to Raleigh on April 26th. In the past I attend Blissdom ( a blog conference no longer in existence )  but since they ended I’ve been itching for something to go to in order to meet other creative people and be inspired. I like that it’s a bit of a smaller group than a typical huge blog conference, and I’m excited to learn! I’ll write a follow up post about it here on the blog if you are interested to know more. It travels to different cities, so keep your eyes on the website to learn where it’s going next! 
2. The talented beauty behind The Dotted Poppy allowed me to design a few pairs of earrings for her. I miss being in the jewelry biz with my sister so it was fun to dip my toe in the pond again. You can shop here

3. I made the food of my people for my friend Allyson yesterday. It’s Danish, my dad is the best at making them, and I can’t wait to share the recipe with you next week.
4. The humidity is slowly creeping in, so that means more mid-day hair adjustments. I did a messy version of this tutorial the other day and remembered how much I like it!


5. David is smiling all the time and so close to rolling over. We practice during playtime, but he hasn’t been bold enough to do it himself. A large part of me is perfectly fine with that because that means he stays where I put him, but I’m also excited for him to develop that new skill.

Lastly, I hired Nicole again to do a little virtual assisting for me and I wanted to share her new business with you. She’s offering classes in order to train to be a virtual assistant. This is a great gig for working from home and setting your own hours. Click here to learn more about it! 


I hope you have a nice weekend!

I love the High Five for Friday format. I really enjoy reading your blog, and because of you, I have started wearing lipstick again! Ha! I haven’t worn it since I was a teenager and now I’m in my forties. I guess you’re never too old to learn new tricks. Enjoy your weekend with that adorable baby!

having my ears pierced 3 seperate times have created uneven holes with a lot of tissue damage. I can’t seem to get the wires through because of the angle…. but now that I say that maybe some of the ones that don’t have the kink on the end i could do!

It’s not the best way of promoting an online business of virtual assistance if your social media channels aren’t linked correctly. I’m talking about http://www.nicschumacher.com/

Kate says · 04.04.14

she’s ironing out kinks on her new site. that can take a bit of time.

Hi Sandra,

Thanks for your concern with my social media icons. It’s actually an error with the Wordpress Theme that the developer is working on. It was working until the last theme update so it’s out of my control. 🙂

Hi Nic,

I tried contacting you twice via your website, but have yet to receive any response. I’m hoping to hear back from you regarding the next start date. I was planning to take the sessions that started in April, but since I never got a response from you I didn’t feel comfortable signing up to take the class.

I hope to get a response back eventually. Otherwise I might have to rethink taking your online class.

Hope to hear from you soon,
Amy

Can you explain more about the VA? Like what she does for you? That kind of intrigues me, but I am not exactly sure what all that includes. I read her website information for the course she is offering…just would like some more information on it. Thanks! Happy Friday!!

Kate,

I’ll see you at the Brand Market! My dream was to attend Blissdom this year… since I saw they weren’t doing that again I’ve been searching for the right conference. I’m really excited.

Is there a best way to wear your hair for a headshot?

Kate,

David is such a cutie! Random question: where did you get the mirror in your post? Love it!

I was wondering if you ever do kids’ hair? My daughter is 8 yrs old and I’m finding it hard to find a cut or style that fits her age but gives her some shape instead of just straight and long. Any ideas would be great!
