Back on that Monday grind! I just read an interesting report made by Buffer about Instagram Stories performance. 🤓 In case you missed this amazing study, I'm sharing you the key highlights. So if you are trying to improve your Insta Stories efforts, this post is for you.
Recently, the social media management platform Buffer analyzed more than 15 000 Stories from the world's top 200 brands and here is what they learned:
1 to 7 Stories is the optimal posting length. After that seven-story threshold, completion rate dropped below 70%. Of course, this is according to the research. I would recommend trying with different lenghts and see what works best for you and your audience.
The best time to post to Instagram Stories is outside office hours: 4AM-6AM, 8AM-10AM, 12PM-2PM and 8PM-10PM (EST time).
Brands are not posting daily to Instagram Stories: they post about 8.7 times a month.
The study found that more people exit on the first and last story frame than any other part of the Stories. Make sure to prioritize the best content first.
If you are interested to read the full report, send me a DM and I will send you the direct link. 🙂
I’m trying out all the decorations on my new white Christmas tree! I’m not actually decorating for Christmas til after thanksgiving but I got this tree and I love it. 💚 what’s your favorite Christmas tree color?? 🌲 (printable pine cone garland from www.littledearprintshop.etsy.com and woodland creatures sewing pattern from www.littledear.etsy.com 🍂)
I’ve lived in New Mexico nearly 4 years and have been visiting here for over 10 years. The expansive skies, the variety of the clouds, and the almost unreal colors at sunrise and sunset day after day have no rival. The inspiration here seems to be limitless and I look forward to sharing these marvelous views with you via my paintings. Presenting "New Mexico Sunset No. 10”. It's the 17th of 30 paintings I'm creating for my "30 Paintings In 30 Days Challenge". See it up close at the link in my bio.
I recently had the priveledge to get to know @erinrhyne and asked her a million questions about her process in creating her stunning hair pieces. Not only is Erin a total gem, but the amount of intricacy she uses for each handmade design blows us away! Talk about true artistry! Each flower is hand cut, sculpted, and painted to creare realistic and organic shapes 😍 Photography: @christinegosch #adorneartistryhaley

I’ve finally got some new drawings in the studio after a long long break! I’m thinking of some awesome new idea but I just don’t have the time to work them out! Working full time has taken its toll on my productivity for sure. Any advice for a struggling artist?
Thanks Artblend Gallery for highlighting my work. Looking forward to exhibiting with you very soon during Miami Art Week Dec. 5/9! #Repost @artblendgallery ・・・

Hiii guys, it’s #justacard week! This week is all about celebrating makers, creators and small businesses (Hey that’s meeeeeee! 🤗). For day 1 of the @justacard challenge, here are 10 facts you probably don’t know about me:
1. It usually takes me 2 tries to watch a movie because I inevitably fall asleep the first time
2. My wonderful fiancé helps me with card orders and writes me a formal resignation letter after every major holiday 😂💯
3. If you ever see me without a Starbucks in my hand, someone has swapped bodies with me Freaky Friday style and you need to CALL THE POLICE 🚨🚨
4. I have an MBA which sometimes feels funny as most of my business decisions involve which curse word to cram into which otherwise nice sentiment
5. I have a 3 year old Pomeranian and shamelessly pull out photos of her when my co-workers share photos of their children #furchild
6. My parents come over and “ambush decorate” my house when they know I’m out
7. Things I don’t understand: zucchini noodles (but you’re just zucchini in a different shape though 🤷🏻♀️) 8. Favourite show of all time: The Office
9. Bad bitch girl crush: @mindykaling 🙌🙌🙌
10. Whenever I make lists, I re-read them to remove all the periods 🤷🏻♀️ (scroll up and double check my work I dare you)
If you’ve made it all the way here, would love for you to share a fun fact about you 😃

Double tap if a good book and/or podcast is your jam! Well, me too! So I’ve been nose deep in an advanced release of @msrachelhollis newest book, Girl Stop Apologizing and I haven’t put it down!! It already has inspired me to go after more of the things I am passionate about, like helping small businesses create branded content, speaking more, guest contributing, and podcasts interviews. I started listening to my past podcast interviews, self-critiquing my content, and jotting down what 2019 looks like as an female entrepreneur.
Empowered women, empower women. My goal is to be the kind of woman who makes guys wanna step their game up, someone who inspires leaders and someone who young girls can look up to! TODAY is WOMEN’S ENTREPRENEURSHIP DAY, so who are the women that inspire the heck out of you (and might not know it!) Tag your faves below and let's celebrate the ladies! 🙌🏽😘🙋🏽♀️ #girlstopapologizing
GREEN TIGERSEYE & FRESHWATER PEARLS with silver chain lobster clasp to close. Available in mother daughter set or sold separately! Check them out in person @ohbabyboutiquelondon located @themarketwfd 2nd floor every Saturday & Sunday!
It always amazes me how siblings who grow up in the same environment can be so different. The Marj girls aren't an exception. I love seeing the different personality each girl has! And I love having them in front of my camera! Can't wait to share more from this session!
When I was drinking, the questions were basic and kind of boring, “white or red?”...honestly, it was a pretty homogeneous experience. Same thing year after year, party after party... .
Hmm, now as someone seeking festive drinks sans the alcohol it’s become really fun and exciting!🎉Ok, I love to be creative and colorful in other areas of my life so why not have that part of me expand into my entertaining? As a non-drinker or someone in favor of #options , the craft “mocktail” world is no joke!!! No longer are you limited to just sparkling water and it doesn’t have to feel like you’re stuck at the “kids table”, oh no!
The artisan makers are stepping up their game, like my friends @marnieraec and @savortheflavourblog are coming up with sophisticated, glamorous beverages. Not drinking this holiday? no worries! There are classy adult beverages just for you! 🥂
What will you have at your Thanksgiving table this week? Hopefully what’s IN your glass isn’t as important as who’s around your table.😉
Eeeek! So excited for my client @natalie_therapy! We’ve been working on her brand for months and creating an amazing offer that positions her as a leader and an expert in her niche!
@carolyn.devine.photography killed it again.
Epic photoshoot today! I love my team.
How would you title this photo? Share below?
Forecast this week calls for a 90% chance of rain on Wednesday and a 💯% certainty of Thanksgiving on Thursday.
So I’m burning ALL the Fall and cozy candles this week. The Pumpkins, the Let’s Stay Home, the Mulled Cider... Sea Salt Hot Cocoa... Whiskey Caramel... all getting lit. Hey, I have all week and who says you can only light one #candle at a time?
If you don’t have Fall candles yet, it’s not too late! I still have several to choose from in stock. Check out our website for details.
