Pour Some Sugar On Me

Ok, so I am guilty of being a slave to fashion. I saw this Def Leppard sweatshirt and wanted it so bad despite not being an active fan. Usually, I am not a fan of the ‘bandwagon’ type mentality, but I could not resist.

Target’s new collection of nostalgic sweatshirts under $25 is just too good to pass up. With so many of us working from home and trying to keep things casual-chic with loungewear, these are simply a must-have!

With go-to fashion finds that are mom-friendly, I have to give Target credit for these edgy and trendy options.

Here is to keeping things cute in 2021! To be fair, here is a small tribute to Def Leppard.

How to Land More Collaborations in 2021!

Gosh, it’s been nearly two years since I wrote this post about how bloggers make money, and already I have so much to add.

At the time I was knee-deep in affiliate programs and blog sponsorships. Since then and after joining many platforms that bring brands and influencers together, my opportunities (and cash) have multiplied month after month.

“It has always been my goal to either inspire, educate, or entertain with Chicks and Salsa.”

Many collaborations come through to my email. MOST I hustle for. The rest I get matched for on one of the platforms I am going to highlight below. Just as I did before I wanted to share all the platforms on which I have successfully landed paid and gifted collaborations with companies I love.

Here is a list of platforms that I highly recommend creating profiles on to get matched with companies looking for people JUST LIKE YOU. No audience is too small, engagement numbers are equally as important.

Once you have created your profile, it is easy! You just apply to campaigns you are eligible for or interested in and wait to hear from the brand.

Here they are:

I have worked with L’Oreal, Aveeno, Coola, GUIDE Beauty, Spa Science, KRIS Wines, and more via Aspire IQ.

I have worked with Hand in Hand, Hollywood Browzer, CVS, SIJO, Good To Go, and more via Cohley.

I can’t say enough about how much Fohr has taught me! They have excellent influencer-forward education that they share on a weekly basis on their YouTube channel. I also suspect that many of the emails that come to me with opportunities, come via Fohr.

I am new to this platform but they recently ran a campaign with BVLGARI and I was part of their KISS Nails campaign.

CLEVER has many awesome opportunities and works with many big names and familiar brands, however, I have been unable to land an opportunity with anyone yet (here’s to 2021!)

I discovered Shopping Links when we met with the founder at ThinkTank in Chicago in 2019. Since then they have partnered up with high-end brands like INTERMIX, NYDJ Jeans, Double Icon, and more!

MAVRCK recently partnered up with Express for their Winter Campaign, sadly, I was not part of this.

Gift Guide for Girls Ages 9-12

As a mom of two girls (ages 9 and 10) with totally different personalities, I am sure there is something on this list that will help make shopping for you a little easier this year.

We all want to do something for our kids to lighten things up this year. Books are always my go-to when it comes to gifting (my girls are currently obsessed with this series), but this year in particular the girls and I really got into crafting to help pass time at home.

In particular, the hot chocolate bombs are the perfect stocking stuffer and with video games ruling my #momlife this year, a Roblox gift card is just perfect too!

For my artsy one, a tie dye kit and pottery set have been on her list forever!

I hope that this post was helpful. I know we all need ideas!

A while back, Sonia and I reviewed some games that also make for a good time with family and friends. Check them out below!

Step Up Your Game With Your Jewelry

Between my new “Jewels of the Week” series on Instagram and launching my Stella and Dot boutique, it has been all about the bling with me. I love basics like a white or black shirt with jeans (or something fun like leather pants). But a statement earring or necklace can really take any outfit up a level for any occasion.

From classic hoops to bangle stacks, I have shared many of my favorites over the years on my LikeToKnow.It profile.

Most people who know me are not surprised by my affinity for jewelry, especially since my Mom is a jeweler (the apple does not fall far from the tree)! Since becoming a brand ambassador for Stella and Dot, not only have I made money and scooped up many of the latest styles for less, but I have also become part of a community of women that are like-minded. We prefer quality over quantity and love supporting other women. If you want to learn about becoming an ambassador, click here.

Become An Ambassador and Earn CASH and Jewelry

With the holidays around the corner, jewelry is a MUST own and also they make for great gifts. Please check out my Stella&Dot store, I donate most of my commissions to a local nutrition program that is feeding kids every day who are learning from home (nearly 1600 students).

As always, thanks for stopping by Chicks And Salsa!

Your Chick,
