I do! I make money two ways: sponsored content and affiliate marketing. Sometimes you’ll see content around here that is sponsored by a brand, like this collaboration with Nordstrom. Most often, I earn money through affiliate links from brands that I use and love. Basically, I’m advertising for free for a company by wearing their tee shirt, so if you see it, love it, and click through to buy it, the company gives me a small percentage of commission for advertising for them.
There’s two ways you can shop my feed. This page will populate with all of my most recent shoppable photos, which you can just click on and select which product(s) you’re interested in. If you don’t like the idea of having to click through from Instagram to my blog to shop, you can sign up for FREE for Liketoknow.it and shop photos very easily. I use Liketoknow.it for following other bloggers and influencers and love it. It’s the easiest way to find a direct link to items that I see and am interested in purchasing. You can choose how/if you want to receive emails of the photos that you like, or if you’d rather shop using the liketoknow.it app, which I use! Once you learn how to use it, which doesn’t take long, it’s so easy and helpful.
For shooting blog content, I use a Canon Rebel T6i with a 50mm f/1.8 STM lens (and occasionally the kit lens, which is 18-55mm). If you’re in the market for a DSLR, I highly recommend this combo! With rare exception, I use my iPhone 8+ to shoot all photos for social media. I edit with A Color Story, which I have a quick tutorial for here.
