I found this social media trick at Darren Rowse’s blog and it’s a life changer! Here is how you can dramatically improve your Facebook following: 1. Go to your Facebook Page. 2. Find a post that has 10+ likes. 3. Look for a link saying something like ‘and 15 others’ and click on it. 4. There will be a pop-up providing you with the list of people who already liked your page (‘Liked’) as well as those who didn’t (those will be listed as ‘Invite’). 5. Invite all the people who are not liking your page yet and you’ll dramatically increase your following!

One of the things I’ve been struggling with recently is how to become more productive while working from home. Those tips by Cheetas Is The New Black bring a new twist to your typical productivity techniques.

Photographing your makeup products on the same background every time could become boring. Try those under $30 backdrop ideas (most of them are DIY-friendly).

You probably have a few playlists saved on your phone for those days when you are going to the gym. How about cooking? Danielle Copperman from Model Mange Tout came out with the idea of cooking playlistand it’s one of the smartest ideas I’ve heard in a while. Definitely give it a try!
