We did a social media series a little while ago that highlighted some great tips from Lauren Caron and Andrea Alder, but I know how easy it is to fall off the wagon. So I am back with some fresh tools for you :) In addition to a link to December National Holidays, below are 4 Social Media Tools to help you with your brand research, aesthetic and consistency. I recently heard that every day you should try to take a step to automate a common task. Please make sure to use the links provided as they are affiliate links which will help you and me ❤️

I had the privilege of hosting a fantastic dinner at Brunswick and Hunt last week. I would say hosting this type of event is one of the highlights of my job. Bringing together a variety of influencers, from different industries and then seeing the synergy that happens always inspires me. The guests at this dinner were Jaime White, Olivia (@grubbinseattle), Charles (@CharlesKoh_) and Nelson (@nelson_yong). Each of us have a passion for food, but a variety of other interests which include Fashion, PR, Technology, and more!

Our menu included delicious house crafted cocktails, charcuterie and cheese, "grapes, grapes, grapes" salad, veggies, an entree of choice and shared dessert to top it all off.

Conversation hit upon a flurry of tips about social media and photography tools such as:

  • iBlazr a "flash designed for smartphones also comes in handy when taking photos with tablets or DSLR cameras, lighting analogue photography, brightening nighttime video calls, or simply functioning as a small but powerful flashlight". The above photo was taken with the iBlazr under the bottle.
  • People Map an amazing platform to created targeted lists, manage campaigns and grow your Instagram following.
  • Iconosquare a tool to grow on Instagram with "easy-to-use analytics and time-saving features".
  • Planoly a way to visually map and plan out your Instagram feed.

As well as some exciting and unexpected restaurant recommendations Phorale Seattle, Terra Vista at Snoqualmie Casino for their“SRF Kobe” Tomahawk steak, and Billy Beach for sushi.

Overall the food was delicious and the conversation flowed freely. I am looking forward to the next Uncommon Dinner!
