1.   The first step is to apply Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Tinted Oil Free Moisturizer all over the face. Blend in by using your fingertips.

2.   Next, apply Dior – Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen under the eyes to cover any imperfections and will also give you a slight radiant glow.

3.   To create your sun kissed look, use Laura Mercier Pressed Powder in Golden Bronze. Lightly dust it on your face. Using a large powder brush, apply to your cheeks.

4.   For pro looking eyes, use Smashbox Soft Effect Powder Eye Liner in warm brown color to create a soft line of color around the upper lash line area. Apply lightly on the lower lash line. Finish the eyes with two coats of Smashbox Full Exposure in jet black color to the top lashes.

5.   If your lips are chapped, start with a lip balm. Finish by giving your lips a vibrant shine, use Color Fever Gloss byLancome in flushed rose color.

How to Get Noticed by Brands from She Knows. (I was quoted)

This is reprinted from She Knows Parenting.
BlogHer: How to Get Brands to Notice Your Mom Blog by Sarah W. Caron
I was quoted about Boxmonthly and gave advice on networking at conferences.  It is important to go to all parties, approach people and
Listen.  Know your brand.

You know your mom blog stands out, but how do you get the brands at BlogHer 2012 to know it too? Here’s how to get your blog noticed and make a good first impression.

BE A MOM BLOG STANDOUT

Whether you are heading to BlogHer for the first time, or you are a seasoned conference veteran, BlogHer can be an overwhelming experience — or a very fruitful one. Wondering how to get your blog noticed? The key is to set your goals before you go, plan and be ready. And if one of those goals is to connect your mom blog with brands (there are lots that will be there!), then you can. Start now.

Reach out before the conference

Now’s the time to reach out to your contacts at brands and public relations companies to let them know you’d love to chat at BlogHer 2012 if they are attending. “Let us know you’ll be there and find out if we’re planning to attend. If we haven’t worked together before, tell us a little about yourself and your blog,” says Erin Olson, director of client services for The Motherhood.

Olson suggests checking for contact information on company websites or to make contact through Twitter and Facebook.  “A few bloggers we work with have emailed us their cell phone numbers and several dates and times during which they would be available to meet briefly at BlogHer, which is a great way to build relationships.”

Prepare your elevator pitch

An elevator pitch is “a brief, 30-second explanation of why you and your blog are different. Be prepared to answer questions about how you got started, why you blog, and what your main topics are,” says Chelsea.

Do you have an elevator pitch? This concise statement of who you are, what your mom blog is about and what you want is key for when you are meeting people from brands and PR companies when you want to make a good first impression. “Be confident in yourself and what you have to offer,” says Chelsea, who blogs at Someday I’ll Learn.

Make sure you’re specific too. “When we ask what you blog about or what kinds of projects you like to work on, there is no more forgettable answer than ‘I do a little bit of everything,'” says Olson. “It’s much better to say, for example, ‘I love cooking and creating recipes, I’m a great photographer, and I have a background as a teacher, so I’m an education expert as well.’ When a client approaches us and asks us to connect them with talented photographers who know a lot about education, you become a shoo-in for the blog campaign.”

Be outgoing

If you go to BlogHer and chat with just a few people and then spend the rest of the conference walking around all alone, you’re doing it wrong.Really. It’s important that you put yourself out there and make a good first impression while you are at BlogHer. Put on your happy game face and start talking! You never know who you’ll meet or how your discussion could blossom into something more like working with brands.

“You must go to all the parties given by the expo and really go up and talk to people. It is important to introduce yourself and more importantly to listen and find out about them and show interest. That is the real way to make connections,” says Lori Peters, who recently launched a subscription box business called Boxmonthly.

After the conference

When the conference ends, it’s over right? Not so fast. Once you’ve gotten home, hugged the kids and caught up on what they did while you were gone, you need to do some follow-up. “The follow-up afterwards is even more important,” says Peters. Follow them on social media and start conversations.

If you want to truly stand out though, send a personal note the old-fashioned way, says Olson. “Our mailing address is on our business cards — stand out by sending a handwritten card. It makes such an impression that I can tell you the name and blog of every person who has sent me a handwritten message,” says Olson. Yes, it takes time, but if you write a couple of cards to standout contacts while at the park, you’ll be doing something very special — and that might make all the difference for your mom blog.

Entertaining the Entrepreneur: Using Tech to Your

Advantage

5 COMMENTS | JUL 05, 2012 | WRITTEN BY: RAMON RAY

tech for entrepreneursSmall business owners are busier than ever, with technology tethering them to the office twenty-four hours a day. But technology can be more than a tool to connect you to work. You can use technology to help you clear your mind, pursue hobbies, and even relax.

By shutting off the office every day for at least a few minutes, you’ll come back to your work feeling refreshed, which will help you tackle the task at hand with more enthusiasm, making you more productive than ever.

I relax by watching movies with my wife, playing basketball with my son, or having an icy with my daughter! Here are a few ways to use technology to unwind, whether you’re hanging out in your hotel room, or relaxing at home after a long, hard day.

  • Watch TV—MobiTV makes watching television on your mobile devices easy, with access to live TV from anywhere. Watch the game while waiting for your spouse to finish shopping at the mall/hardware store. Tune into major events like Wimbledon or the Super Bowl while sitting at your desk, working hard. MobiTV also provides on demand content, and for those concerned about data plans, the ability to download shows to watch when a wi-fi connection isn’t available.
  • Play games—Vermont Computing’s Jeremy Lesniak unwinds with games like Angry Birds, Words with Friends, and the new social media favorite, Draw Something. “The key to relaxing with technology is finding something that allows the time to pass without frustration,” Lesniak says. “For me, games like Angry Birds don’t work as I continually want to solve the current level and move on – it’s part of what drives me as an entrepreneur.”
  • Get plenty of sleep—BoxMonthly’s Lori Peters recommends Deep Sleep with Andrew Johnson, a relaxation app, for relaxing before bedtime. “I can be having a hectic, crazy busy twelve-hour day and take ten minutes and listen to this app and it’s a whole new me.” EventFind’s Lou Lomibao uses Relax Melodies, a smartphone-enabled sound machine that offers a range of sounds. “You can choose which sounds, mix sounds and put it on a timer,” Lomibao says. “So I choose some ocean waves and birds, close my eyes and take a minute to reflect on the day.”
  • Read the newspaper—Nick Herinckx of Portland-based Obility Consulting likes Flipboard, an app that lets you read news articles, social media posts, and other web content in newspaper format. Herinckx says Flipboard is a “great app for quickly browsing the latest news from multiple categories. The app makes news stories look like a newspaper.”
  • View relaxing scenery—Brent Hohlweg, co-founder of window cleaning service Men in Kilts, uses My Living Desktop to take occasional work breaks. Hohlweg has found My Living Desktop introduces “Serenity Breaks where you get to watch some awesome HD nature videos at set intervals.” Any time you’re feeling stressed, go back to your desktop and you’ll feel like you’re looking through a window at your favorite scene. Whether it’s the beach, the mountains, or a close-up of beautiful flowers, you’ll have 28 scenes to briefly take you away from your world of spreadsheets and deadlines.
  • Watch a movie—What can be more entertaining than watching a movie? PopcornFlix.com provides a great alternative to sites like Netflix, providing free full-length films for instant streaming to your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Most of the films are independent feature films from Screen Media’s library, but you’ll find films starring Will Ferrell, Alec Baldwin, and John Goodman, among many others. While many of the titles may sound unfamiliar, you’ll likely discover a great movie you never would have watched otherwise.

Playing hard is just as important as working hard. Luckily, for the busy small business owner, fun and relaxation are only as far as your favorite electronic device. By having instant access to your favorite diversion, you’ll be able to relax anytime you have a free moment.

2:52 am – 12th July:

Boxmonthly.com is a subscription beauty box website startup. This is our first box in July and looking for sponsors, venture capitalists and customers is very time consuming. I hope I helped other entrepreneurs by referring them to Deep Sleep with Andrew Johnson. He also has Disconnect with Andrew Johnson that gets me away from the computer for a breaks.
