Here are three new products to incorporate into your skincare regime this Spring!
So, the first thing you do when you get on the Function of Beauty website is create a hair profile.
This is an example of the steps you go through to complete your profile and the one I completed ✅:
I’ve oogled and ogled designer fashion for most of my life. I’ve spent years flipping through magazines, and running my fingers through racks of clothing in stores where I could, at most, buy a fashion keychain.

I joined a webinar yesterday about lifestyle and fashion blogging. It was led by the awesome Marina de Giovanni & it gave me a lot of good ideas! First, I need to appeal to a more targeted audience. So, I’ve decided to curate my content towards Stationary & gift lovers. Like I need more of a reason to spend time in Papersource. Eventually I can expand my brand into other subjects I am passionate about but right now I think my content is too scattered.
Here’s to creating the ultimate stationary and gift guide! #thenewnostalgia
A lot of companies have made social media extensions of their brand a priority in the last decade, but oftentimes they fall by the wayside. Prospective clients or career seeking professionals will investigate into your company and rely on social media to communicate relevant information regarding its viability. When they see that those profiles haven’t been updated in over a year, that comments haven’t been acknowledged and the amount of content available in total does little to convey important information, they start to reel in doubt.
As a society we rely on instant communication and consistent validation that a brand is continuing to grow. When you manage your profiles and continuously update their content it simulates that personal connection and reassurance we find from in person business. You are present, you are building trust with your clients, employees and future first impressions. This all comes from a strong social media presence which can profitably supplement your website and mainstream credibility.
Make time to manage all of your social media profiles. Not only does it increase your presence on multiple platforms, but it also sustains a solid relationship between you and the traffic on your profiles, which evolve into lasting professional relationships.
I got to have breakfast with my grandma Dorothy yesterday and also see my best friend, Vicky. My grandma is doing well. She is still taking classes at the local community college and is apart of a quilting group.She’ll be starting a class soon on the founding fathers; after that is a course on eastern European countries, I think, and then later on she’ll take one about Murder Mysteries (she loves mystery novels so I know she’s really excited). I am a little worried because she told me she was having dizzy spells but thankfully not while she’s driving. I told my parents when I got home and hopefully they can talk her into seeing the doctor. I found out Vicky actually lives like 3 minutes away from where I work, which is awesome since we normally don’t see each other that often. The universe was looking out.
The instructor said,
Go home and write
a page tonight.
And let that page come out of you—
Then, it will be true.
I wonder if it’s that simple?
I am twenty-two, colored, born in Winston-Salem.
I went to school there, then Durham, then here
to this college on the hill above Harlem.
I am the only colored student in my class.
The steps from the hill lead down into Harlem
through a park, then I cross St. Nicholas,
Eighth Avenue, Seventh, and I come to the Y,
the Harlem Branch Y, where I take the elevator
up to my room, sit down, and write this page:
It’s not easy to know what is true for you or me
at twenty-two, my age. But I guess I’m what
I feel and see and hear, Harlem, I hear you:
hear you, hear me—we two—you, me, talk on this page.
(I hear New York too.) Me—who?
Well, I like to eat, sleep, drink, and be in love.
I like to work, read, learn, and understand life.
I like a pipe for a Christmas present,
or records—Bessie, bop, or Bach.
I guess being colored doesn’t make me NOT like
the same things other folks like who are other races.
So will my page be colored that I write?
Being me, it will not be white.
But it will be
a part of you, instructor.
You are white—
yet a part of me, as I am a part of you.
Sometimes perhaps you don’t want to be a part of me.
Nor do I often want to be a part of you.
But we are, that’s true!
As I learn from you,
I guess you learn from me—
although you’re older—and white—
and somewhat more free.
This is my page for English B.
