What To Get! What to get?!

It’s that stressful time of year again, where we all struggle with what to get our loved ones for the holiday season. This is also the weekend of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, and this year more stores and manufacturers are steering more online when it comes to their deals.

I have decided to take it upon myself to compile as many money saving deals into a list as I can to help you, my wonderful readers. Note that I may get wording wrong, it is always best to double check the store’s website to make sure the sale is still on!

1. 50% off sitewide sale on ElfCosmetics.com 

I don’t know when this sale ends, but I love elf anyways because it’s quality makeup at affordable prices, and the fact they are having 50% off sitewide makes it even more fun! The only exclusions is anything marked “NEW” which you will have to pay full price on. I bought 17 items that would usually cost me $49-$50, for $29.00! On top of this deal, you get free shipping if you spend $25 or more. This sitewide sale only works if you buy $30 or more worth of products. To get this sale price, you must use code CELEBRATE at checkout!

2. Buy an iPhone get an iPhone at Target.

This deal started Thursday night and goes until Saturday 11/25. The type of deal says it all- buy an iphone, get an iphone free! I know what I’ll be doing on Saturday, what about you? Visit your local Target for more information.

3. Entire Store Buy 3 Get 3 Free at Bath and Body Works.

Again, I don’t know when this special ends, but on bath and body works’ website and in store it says you can buy three and get three free! There are exclusions to this amazing deal. Make sure to check their website for more information.

4. Free Black Friday Tote Bag and Mini Bag at Victoria’s Secret

With a $75 purchase at Victoria’s Secret, you can score a free Black Friday tote bag and mini bag duo! Use code FridayPair at checkout, this deal does exclude clearance items. Another deal happening at Victoria’s Secret is getting free shopping on purchases $50 or more and getting $20 off of purchases of $125 and more.

5. $15 Beauty Gifts at Sephora

This deal only lasts while supplies do, but as of this morning on Black Friday, there are items, mostly bundles for $15! Brands ranging from Lancome to Benefit, Tarte, and much more! Make sure to go and save some money on beauty favorites!


Tips and Tricks: Partnership

I have been MIA from this blog, not only because I am busy with school but also with my slowly growing YouTube channel, (spbeauty323 on YouTube) and also and working on my new original pop-culture inspired apparel business. I have been really wanting to write on this blog, but not sure what to write about. After thinking, I finally got an idea.

I don’t remember if I have talked about this on my blog, but I did discuss it on my YouTube channel several times. A few months ago, or in July, we were in the Emergency Room because my younger sister broke her leg. I checked my business email to see an email that I thought would never happen! I got an email offering me a personalized discount code, to provide to my readers, subscribers and followers on all my social media accounts. I was ecstatic, and now I am a partner of 5 amazing companies that all have something unique to them.

Now if you are reading this page, something caught your eye, and it might be wondering how I got partnered, and personally I have no idea how I did it because I have less than 100 followers on Instagram and on YouTube, yet companies find me. Here are some things I did, that you can do to get partnered with small companies just like I did.

  1. Make a Business email- This one doesn’t sound like anything out of the ordinary, but if you are starting a serious career, such as an artist, company, blog, etc. It is suggested you make a business email, which I did, originally I used the business email for my blog, but now that I have a growing YouTube channel, I created a new business for spbeauty323. However, make a business email using your name and/or your stage name, and it is crucial that you include ‘business’ or ‘biz’ in the email address. Another helpful tip is to make it a short address, and easy to remember.
  2. Promote your Craft- Even though I have barely 50 followers on Instagram, I do attract a lot of traffic- most of the time. If you are an aspiring makeup/fashion influencer, make sure to post a lot of photos and videos showing your makeup skills on yourself and other people, showcase your talent, and don’t forget to use hashtags that are relevant. Hashtags are your friend in making your name.
  3. Get in Contact- It doesn’t hurt to contact small businesses that are starting out, just ask them about possibly becoming a partner for them, and if they are starting out, chances are they’ll say yes, because it’s as good for them  as it is for you. I definitely kept in contact with some amazing people at amazing companies, just be polite and tell them about yourself and what your goal is.
  4. Showcase Your Favorite Products- Showcasing your favorite products help, it also gets the attention of those companies, because they see more people liking their products. The more attention you get, especially if they repost your photos/videos.
  5. Create Content- This one is pretty obvious, but you’ve seen creators posting photos of their makeup products on top of all white furniture right? Even if you aren’t a beauty guru and are interested in being an influencer in a different path, this is still helpful, because it lets you be creative even if you are just showing products in a certain lay out, you can blast your favorite music to get some inspiration, and stage your own photoshoot, just make sure you don’t get shadows in your pictures, because that has happened to me.
