Top Social Media, Brand Building And Influencer Tips: 12 Things I Learnt At The Reward Style Blogging Conference


I'm currently sat in a Scandi themed apartment in Dallas, feeling incredibly inspired. Life can be negative and I do find we live in a world full of people who would rather pull us down than lift us up. This weekend was different though. This weekend I spent three days at a ‘blogging boot camp’ let’s call it, with some global leaders in the world of influencer marketing, blogging and more. I wandered around a hotel where women empowered each other every single day rather than ripping each other to shreds. It's something I'd like to see more of and sadly, isn't something I'm used to. I sat in talks with some of the top global full-time bloggers and Instagrammers, as well as savvy business owners. I got all the top tips from industry experts and insiders and my brain is bursting with ideas and positivity. If you follow me on instagram @emshelx you’ll have probably seen some behind the scenes from my weekend at RSTheCon and I also tweeted out (@emshelx) some top tips I learnt. I'm fortunate to receive many emails on a weekly basis from people asking for blogging tips and tricks, because of this, I wrote a huge blog post with my top how to be a blogger / social media influencer tips. I thought it would be a good idea to write down 12 of the most important things I've taken away from the Reward Style blogging conference in the hopes that it helps you, if you are either a business owner, a freelancer or someone who wants to be a blogger/influencer or even if you just work in social media. I'm using the word influencer in this article but I know some prefer content creator, blogger, etc. But for ease, stick with me haha. A lot of this isn't just influencer specific, you can really take these tips on board for all lines of work. Disclaimer: this isn't me saying there is a wrong or a right way to run a business/build your brand/be a blogger/influencer but you may be able to take something incredible away from it, like I did. Get cosy, get your notepad out, it's time to get inspired. Here are 12 things I learnt from the Like To Know It influencer conference.

An Interview With My Mum

yellow afternoon teaI was super excited when Twinings asked me to partner with them on their #HereForYou campaign and to celebrate three different heroes in my life. It got me thinking, have you ever heard the phrase 'your smile could make someone’s day'? Well, it's something that's always stuck with me. Whether it's smiling at the bus driver, smiling at the man handing you a flyer or smiling and saying hello to the elderly man down the street. A little bit of kindness and love goes a long way. You never know what someone is going through. Just like a smile can go a long way, supporting someone can go a long way too. There are so many ways you can be there for someone, whether it's by physically standing by their side, or, even if you can't physically be there, dropping someone a text, liking their photo. It can make all the difference to a bad day, knowing that you have someone who is always there for you. We tend to focus on the negatives but our lives are so busy and often the good eggs and supportive people only get a fraction of the recognition they truly deserve. I always try and remember to say thank you to the people who are here for me (whether it's with a big old smile, saying thanks or sometimes even a gift) so that they know how much I value them. I was super excited when Twinings asked me to partner with them to celebrate three different heroes in my life. Last time I caught up with my nana who I someone who always makes me glow. The second of which is my Mum.

The Best Skincare + Beauty Products for Travel + Holidays

The Best Skincare + Beauty Products for Travel + Holidays
Hello hello! I’ve done so many blog posts about in-flight skincare but what about when you arrive at your destination? In an ideal world, I’d take my whole bathroom with me (hello Em the skincare lover) but that’s just not what I can do. I have to hold my hands up and say, I’m not a hand luggage kinda girl. I really try to use minis wherever I can but when the option is available and I can take a suitcase, I’ll jump at the chance. I’m writing this on a plane, my skin is feeling epic after a La Mer facial at World Duty Free and it got me thinking about epic hydrating and post-flight products to pack in your case. Let’s chat and see what’s new in the world of hydrating beauty products.

Styling Tips For A Wedding Guest - What To Wear To A Wedding

big round ray bans
If you've ever stopped by the occasionwear ideas section of my blog you'll know that I'm forever on the hunt for new occasionwear outfit ideas to add to my wishlist. I'm lucky to receive so many requests on a daily basis asking for ideas of what to wear to weddings, parties, the races, and other events. I'm honored that you guys trust me. I honestly think choosing what to wear as a guest to an event is the hardest thing, particularly if the theme is smart casual. Give me casual or give me smart but smart casual just confuses the life out of me. I'll never forget the struggle I had finding something to wear when I went to my first ever wedding. So, today I thought I'd write down my top tips for what to wear as a wedding guest this season. If you're struggling for what to wear as a wedding guest, this post is for you. Just make sure you continue to check the occasionwear ideas section of my blog for constant new additions as stock levels change and I add new stuff every other day. Let's go.
