Who isn’t hungry for better business and social media strategies?

People rank food as one of the top 3 benefits of a good vacation.

It’s also the main reason why we make big life decisions such as what city we visit, what venue we choose for milestone celebrations, whether or not we’re going to attend a particular event-

“Oh, she’s having the party at Nobu? Say no more. I’m there!”

I recently spent an entire weekend at a luxury resort with all the bells and whistles- swag bags upon arrival, with my name on it- and spelled correctly, too!

Fireplace in my room, spa with private lounge areas, aromatherapy massages, whirlpool and sauna.

...And all I keep raving about after is *the food*! The breakfast was AMAAAZING!

Since we’re all motivated by food, let’s infuse more of it into unconventional places! Like your written copy and your pictures.

What exactly do I mean- “Whatchu talkin ’bout, Willis?”

If you’re still reading this, it’s partially because I grabbed your attention with food.

(The other part is because my posts are the magical ones you’re always dying to open 😉

To make this easy, why reinvent the wheel?

Follow my lead and infuse a little more food into your copy for business or social groups when you need to grab their attention and get your message out there.

Emails, blog posts, articles, meetings- take note that I’m not showing up if food isn’t involved. How about you?

Another sneaky little tip that works…

How To Make Instagram Work For You

To totally raise your reach, views and impressions (if you’re into tracking all ‘dat), aka your *likes* on social media is once again, with what?

Yep, you guessed it- with food!

I shared a video on Instagram that you can watch HERE. It’s about how to create an Insta-worthy fashion and beauty post with food, LOL!

We laugh, but at last check, it was ranking in almost 1k views an hour! Because yes- fashionistas and beauty enthusiasts love to eat, too!

My 4 Flatlay Tips

1. Lay out your flat canvas. Your canvas should be the largest item that you lay everything else on top.

2. Choose a color scheme. Examples include black and white, red white and blue, complementary colors like shades of orange and blue, or maybe monochromatic like only shades of blue. Another fun scheme is to use neutrals like black and white with a color pop, like red.

3. Accessorize. If you have an item of focus, lay that out first and accessorize around it.

4. Add food. I used fruit for pops of color and added whimsy in all of my flatlays pictured in this post. I want to start incorporating drinks and drink spills, too!

  1. I love the fruit! It makes a cute addition to the photo for sure! And you’re right, EVERYONE loves food!

  2. What a brilliant tip! Now that I think about it, I always give a like to flatlays with someone type of food item in them! Crazy…

  3. First of all, thank you for your giveaway! I have to say, I like your style of writing! And I LOVE that the pink ombre sundress!!

  4. Hello Girlfriend, You wear some really colorful & cute outfits. Especially the one on the cruise ship? You’re always styling….I wish I did…I’m not good with putting a cute style together. Any tips?

    1. Hi, Destiny! Love your name (it’s also my daughter’s name ;-). I’m always an advocate for wearing what feels good and in your favorite colors! Life’s too short to wear boring clothes! Until you find your personal style, shop affordably so you can get comfortable and confident in your new looks. Check out SheIn.com with this 15% off coupon code: ipersonal315. I wear their clothes mostly. Also, thank you for your kind words.

      1. Thank you. Is her name spelled the same? Thanks for the coupon for the site. I will look ’em over. My favorite color is purple & it’s sooo hard to find nice looking clothes in Purple. So I just usually throw on some plain leggings and a T shirt..lol My hubby is surprised whenever I do get a chance to look cute. I’m a special needs mom so looking cute & sexy is not always an option..You’re right about life being too short so Perhaps, I’ll try something new once a month to start. You have been so gracious..

        1. Hi, Destiny! Yep, you and my daughter both spell your names the same 😉 I like your idea of once a month trying something new- wear it date night with the hubs! I also think you can search by color on SheIn’s website, like purple dress, women’s purple shirts, etc.

  5. I love the color combinations that you choose for your posts. I really like the addition of fruits to make things pop even more.

  6. You have such great style and I appreciate the way you’ve mixed colors here. So cute! Thanks for the giveaway chance, too.

    1. Thanks, Marie! Sometimes on a Canon, but mostly on the latest iPhone (right now XS)—the cameras are simply amazing and totally comparable to a DSLR ever since they added portrait mode a few years back, and now different types of light modes: studio, natural, etc. Moreover, it’s the photo editing that gives each shot its style. I share my custom preset/filter in my Ultimate Business Checklist. Have you received it?

  7. I really enjoyed this post! The photos were great. I colors were so captivating. That sundress is a favorite of mine.

    1. Hi, Debbie!!! My best friend is getting married this same weekend, so I had to unfortunately bow out of Barn Sale this go round. I’m on the count down for 2020, tho!
