Wanderlust: Summer Palnning|Life Goals|Working Goals

Hello Loves,

This is going to prove to be an exciting summer with the prospect of growing all of my businesses and, a bit of traveling. Ahh, the thrill of the unknown and, new places to venture. Today, is a working/planning day for me as I need to increase my sales on Poshmark & Amazon. Along with those business goals I am also, trying to increase my views for my YouTube channel and of course my blog. With my new goals I am a little jumbled with how to get this all accomplished and, of course, intertwine my healthy life & helping the planet goals. Will all this on my mind, I have found I have become more exhausted and, have learned to listen to my body. One of the main reasons I am “trying” to work from home is because I do not have the energy for a normal 9 to 5 job. Some days I am thoroughly exhausted and I need a mid-day nap or a quick break. I am strategizing not only accomplishing my work goals but, taking my life & health goals into consideration. I would say most of the time we do not take care of ourselves and, it leads to health problems later on in life. I want to take care of myself now instead of 30 years down the road when I have worked myself down along with my health. Healing myself from the inside out is my main goal for my life right now. I follow many Vegan YouTubers and, when I wake up in the morning I look forward to watching their videos. Mel, from Raw Nourishment always seems to have the perfect video for what I need to hear that day. Her recent video about making a list and manifesting what you want in your life was just right. Although, her video was about her vegan boyfriend, that is not a high priority on my list this year because I am learning to heal my body, grow my businesses, and love the person I am. Each day I have grown to learn more about myself or my body and, it is fascinating. I no longer worry about what people think of me I am just myself and, I Love it. It is hard to express the change in the way I am because it is not  a physical change but, more of a self accepting change. I feel I have always been myself but, I feel I have actually embraced it. I am more determined and focused to accomplish my goals and aspirations. I am self aware and aware of the disturbance we are putting our planet through. Recently, I have talked about ethical clothing and moving my Poshmark closet into an ethical clothing closet and, possibly my own boutique. Growing my businesses helps me to grow as a person and move forward in my life. In the next two years I would like to get my own place and, travel. To be able to travel & get my own place I need to work ten times harder and longer to accomplish that. I think that everything that I need to get done I will and, my life will fold out when I least expect it to. Let me know how you are feeling and, if you have become enlightened within yourself. Thank you for taking the time to read and, if you enjoyed it please share it would mean a great deal to me.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

What The Hell Is A #Veggan?

#Veggan is popping up all over social media and no, it is not Vegan spelled wrong. This poses the question “What The Hell Is #Veggan? Well, it is a vegan that eats eggs or, that is what the trend is. If only these Veggans knew there is already a name for them ovo-vegetarians. It is interesting that these Veggans think that vegganthey have tapped into a new market. Vegans are plant based and do not eat products derived from animals, this includes, meat, dairy, and eggs. Based on my research the fitness industry is trying to make some coin from this term. It is fitness enthusiast who are wanting to go vegan but, are afraid that are not going to get enough protein. Oh loves, do we not realize how much protein you are getting from a plant-based lifestyle? I will be doing a whole post on protein and why none vegans are so worried about us getting        enough protein. My response is to please do you research before you question the vegan lifestyle. True Vegans will never be eating eggs so, these egg eaters can call themselves what they want because they are only helping the Vegan message to be spread. Veganism is thought to be the cool/trendy way to eat but, for most of us it is about healthy and ethical living. I will post some YouTube Channels down below to help you better understand Vegans and Raw Vegans. Lets spread the #Vegan message and help those who are a bit confused at what Veganism actually is.
Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Breaking News Starbucks Red Cups

Ciao Tutti,

Breaking News is happening all the time and I am covering it for you all. Have you heard about the Red cups from Starbucks? Did you know that this design was established in 1977 so, why is everyone freaking out about a red cup? Some Christians specifically Christian Evangelists are taking it a bit to far and decided that Starbucks is against Christianity and Christmas; when in fact that is not the case, Starbucks is taking steps to be politically correct. Although, I am Christian and love the idea of Christmas cups I am also, all for including everyone and standing to be politically correct. Is this the case where a cup in is in fact a cup and everyone needs to get over themselves, in my opinion yes. Starbucks is in 66 countries and should have their aim in a politically corrective sphere. With the holidays always having a vintage them and old fashioned feeling, Starbucks seemed to not know that this kind of rage would be taking place over a cup. Starbucks may have believed that people would be filled with the spirit of the holidays and not so focused on their red inspired vintage cup. If I was Starbucks and, I had known about the controversy ahead of time I would have done a snowflake cup; then no one has anything to say, snowflakes are not mixed with religions in which I feel they are neutral toward everyone. Like Taylor Swift has done which has made her millions Starbucks has their haters to thank for the free publicity and, no they did not right a song although, that’s a great idea.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Breaking News: Social Media Controversy

Ciao Tutti,

With Social Media Marketing at it’s highest why are Instagrammers/YouTubers sharing their stories and, why is it such a big deal? We have all heard Essena Oneill talking out about how all her post were fake, she was starving herself, and she hated herself but, she was making bank off of her Social Media posts. What happens when the person you are following and looking up to on Social Media has created this fake façade that they don’t even like and, better yet why are they standing for it? Is it the fame, money, and attention… I would check all of those boxes because people who are speaking out about it seem to have done Social Media Marketing in the wrong way taking what ever is offered to them and, not testing the products to see if they actually like them. So, it is not technically a fault of the person but, more of a cry for attention that is desperately needed because they are unhappy with the way their life is going, or people just really enjoy making a ton of money. Either way, Social Media Marketing should be taken seriously and done only for products that the individual enjoys and thinks that other individuals will enjoy as well. Younger girls are extremely impressionable and, hold these socialites on a higher pedestal then themselves; making it extremely easy to sell products to them. If done properly Social Media Marketing can be a platform for products that you love to get attention and, attention that is well deserved. Think about if you posted about a product you hated and said you loved it and, lets say you had 10K followers on instagram tha company is likely to sell over 1,000 of those products at the least. That is 1,000 unnecessary purchases for a product you hated and they are most likely not going to like either. It is not always about making yourself and the company money but, about standing up for what you believe is ethically correct. Instead of just mindlessly posting, post because you believe in the product and you will still believe in the product five years from now. This mindset of ethics will show your followers that you care about them/yourself, and will not have you in bits when your morals catch up to you and, you end up deleting your account and,all that work. Remember that this is a job and as long as the person you are following has products that you both enjoy they should not be criticized for  getting paid.

How I approach Social Media Marketing:

Although, I do not have a big enough following to get paid to promote products on my Instagram I have posted them anyway. I only post about products, people etc, that I love and believe in. My Instagram ranges quite a bit and now that I understand Instagram I have created more Insta account to separate things I love.

@allievluv originally eyeheartedu was transformed this year as to not confuse my YouTube Followers

@allievluvplans was created because I decided I love planning and wanted a platform where other people could relate.

@eyeheartedu Created when I decided that I wanted to further promote Poshmark and my closet. I also, feature other Posher’s closet if I enjoy items that they have. I also, try to show how I am there for my customer and have their best interest in hand; I do these by showing how I package and item or coupons I send. I also, package my items with love, care,and a little something extra for my customers enjoyment.

@thatsabangsfitme My only locked Instagram page as I want to give all of you that are following me on fit me exclusivity to my posts. If you have read the Fit Me posts you know their basis are for motivation but, I will be doing segments about meal prep etc. to keep you all interest. I have already posted on here sharing some motivation for you all so, defiantly head over to Instagram and follow me.

I am going to take you through my Instagram and Step By Step Through all the products I just can’t stop blabbing about. And you know I am in love with it if it ends up on my YouTube Channel, Instagram, or SnapChat.

-Poshmark: I am in love with the Poshmark app and that is because it allows you to make money and buy clothes at the same time! This occurs constantly throughout my Instagram page and did I get paid? Nope, not one penny… I love it so much I created my own Poshmark Instagram to promote my closet @eyeheartedu .

-allievluv YouTube Channel: I am always talking about my YouTube Channel because I love being a YouTuber. In fact, I am rendering a video right now and, I figured why not multitask and get a blog out for my bloggers. YouTube is not only an extreme passion of mine it is also, something I hope to turn into a career. I will be working hard this November to get a post out everyday. Which, was suppose to start this Friday but, I am sick. I am still getting my YouTube Channel and blog content although, it is not the content I hoped for.

-Friend’s Businesses: I also, support my friends and if you look through my whole instagram you will find posts about my friends businesses. As you know I have never got paid to promote a business/product through my YouTube Channel so, it is strictly because I love and support what my friends are doing.

-Other YouTuber- If I like your YouTube Channel it is most likely featured on my Instagram at some point. Even though these YouTubers are bigger than I am doesn’t mean I don’t support my fellow YouTubers.

-Veganism/Vegan Products: I have not been Vegan my entire time on Instagram so, not all my posts hat are food related are Vegan but, ever since I turned vegan I have defiantly promoted the lifestyle! I will never go back it is amazing and makes me feel so much better. I promote vegan products like 100 Percent Pure that has my favorite lotion Vanilla Bean which I purchased after receiving a sample in my first purchase from them.

-Whole Foods, Fruit, Rawtill4, Fashion, Trips, Lookbooks, Makeup, Makeup Artist & Photographer for my lookbook, letote, Candles, Tea Mugs, DIY Projects, Welledia, Canon Camera Just Being Myself.

I promoted all these products, places, people, things without getting paid so, can you imagine how amazing the product etc. would have to be for me to accept being paid. If you continue to be yourself within posting have fun with it the paid post will be just another symbolism of yourself.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you did share & follow me! I would love to chat with you down in the comments.
