That's a wrap! Spent the weekend getting my holiday gifts ready to go (with the help of a couple of Santa's elves, of course)!
If you’re struggling to keep up with every social media account you own, center in on strategy for the sites that work best for you (in my case, that’s Instagram and Facebook). As a creative, freelancer or small business with limited resources, it’s unreasonable to expect overnight success across all social media platforms. Your content, service, community, etc. may not even resonate on that platf
In love with this pretty packaging. We can't wait to try the Marine Collagen Mineral Treatment from our client @jenu_hightechbeauty. #clientlove #jenerationfamily
I’m an Angeleno, born & raised. It’s crazy, but when people ask where I’m from and I say “LA,” they look surprised. Apparently nobody is “from” LA. They “come to” LA. But I’m from here. My kids were born at the same hospital where I was. My heart is breaking for this city that I love so much. This city that is currently in flames. I’m sending love & strength to all of the firefighters and their fa
Rise Up. #TBT to seeing @HamiltonMusical with A.Ham himself a couple of weeks ago.
Do you have relevant blogs on your media list? Media is more than print and broadcast and many industries have well-established blogs that generate high-quality news and are trusted sources of info for their readers.
It's supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, but for some people who go into the holidays already stressed out from their hectic and overscheduled lives, holiday burnout is real. Believe me, I totally get it. Avoid burnout and pick your priorities early in the month. Most people can't do everything they wish they could do during the holidays, so you need to examine your what is most im
Whatever you have and whoever you are, own it.
Having a blast doing some holiday baking with the fam. I FINALLY decided to treat myself to a KitchenAid Mixer. It reminds me of baking cookies with my grandma when I was a kid. My cousin and I would dump extra sugar in the batter when she wasn't looking! Confession: eating the dough is STILL my favorite part. Anyone else?

Happy Halloween! In case you need me, I may or may not currently be elbow deep in candy... I'm going out with the boys later tonight, but until then... it's time to trick or treat yo'self!!
Just creepin' it real guys. #HalloweenHumor
Doing Fall things. Making the most of the weekend and spending the day carving pumpkins with my boys.
When it comes to #'s, we all know how important they are to any social media strategy. But in order to prevent your posts from getting stale, you need to mix up your hashtags! Be intentional and use a combination of generic, popular hashtags with more niche, lesser-used hashtags to gain more visibility and hone in on your target audience.

When you're making your PR strategy, one of the first things you need to establish is which publications you plan to target. Which specific editors at each Consumer, Trade, blog, online magazine, television producer or analyst is the correct contact? Have you verified your media list is up to date? Have you made a list of social influencers that would be interested in your products? If not, start

When you're interviewing, the reporter is only looking for one, two or maybe three soundbites they can use from the interview. So be prepred to say a couple of things that are short, colorful and capture your message well.
Here's to all of the kiddos out there who went back to school in style. We love this recent Press win in @peoplemag featuring our client @skiphop's little kid backpacks as a back to school must-have. #clientlove #jenerationfamily
Stop. Take a minute and BREATHE. I feel like life has been so crazy the past few weeks that I've been a bit out of breath. Whatever you're doing right now, stop, take a deep breath in and then slowly exhale. It's amazing what a few of these can do.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but in the digital age, finding, knowing, and OWNING your voice also brings immense value. While we’re in the golden age of visual-everything, brands must still understand that images shouldn’t necessarily outweigh placing emphasis on the copy. In fact, the most successful companies often see both as important tools to capture their audience’s attention in

I saw Petty on his last stop in LA, his hometown and where the band was formed 40 years ago. It was an incredible show. Electric. I will never forget it, and I can't believe he’s gone. His music may as well have been the “score” of my adult life. My husband and I feel in love on a road trip up the California coast on PCH listening to Petty on repeat. We saw 6 shows together. The last show we saw w
Easy like Sunday morning.
Running Facebook Ads is commonplace for social media marketing now. However, more often than not, running these ads straight to products can make them stick out like a sore thumb on a Facebook user’s News Feed. Running ads to content instead can make them feel more “native” to the Facebook platform. If all goes well, people won’t even notice they’re ads, and before you know it, they’ve visited you
