I’m so excited to share this weeks nail art tutorial as it’s something I had yet to try. The flower trend is ongoing especially this time of year, although it seemed a bit intimidating I gave it a go! And it turns out it’s easy and you can try the flower in your own favorite color, or as I did here, in pink. The trick to doing a flower – layers, layers! And a thin brush wouldn’t hurt either.
Are you on social media, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter? The idea of branching out on social media has been daunting for me to say the least. I’m a self proclaimed introvert and I am most happy keeping to myself. However, if you’re a YouTuber like myself, have a blog, a small business owner, have an online store or work from home and would like to promote your brand, there’s is without a doubt the need to be on social media. The ease of being on social media for marketing has worked so well for many people and the best part of it all, it’s free.
After much thought, I decided to join Instagram for my YouTube channel. You can follow me @simple_naildesigns. I’m excited and eager to learn more on the program – do we call it a program? Do we not?
If you’re on other social media outlets to promote yourself – company, let me know which one and how it’s working out for you.
Are you content with the results or are you having doubts about it? Are you on Instagram, any tips you can give me as I’ve just embarked on this new outlet.
This reblog is from Bereaved Single Dad – blogger and father to a son. As they say, it’s never too late, too late to become educated, to learn, to become aware and to shed light on things that matter to you. Him and I share one thing that’s close and dear to our hearts and that is our sons have been labeled many things, which only means they are extra special.
I recently saw the comedian Amy Schumer’s Netflix special, ‘Growing.’ She opens up on her husbands autism diagnosis. She and her husband – a chef, are expecting their first child. It was also evident that in the midst of a diagnosis we can still find laughter and joy.
“Once he was diagnosed, it dawned on me how funny it was, because all of the characteristics that make it clear that he’s on the spectrum are all of the reasons that I fell madly in love with him,” she says in the ‘Growing’ Netflix special. “That’s the truth. He says whatever is on his mind. He keeps it so real. He doesn’t care about social norms or what you expect him to say or do.”
This reminded me of my son – he says as he sees it, he’s now 9 years old, working hard in school and continues his speech therapy. You can read more on my son’s Autism diagnosis here. When I first heard her speak on the topic it was hard not to feel an overwhelming feeling of hope. The stigma around Autism – as many other diagnosis, is the unknown future. Will he find a special person, a wife, will he have children, a career, etc.? The actress speaking up on her husband’s diagnosis filled me up with both appreciation and hope.
