Looking Fly :: How to Make Your Poshmark Feed Look Great

Looking Fly :: How to Make Your Poshmark Feed Look Great

 

I’ve been doing Poshmark for a little while now, and want to share my discovery of categorizing items from your closet. I hope that this post will help to communicate some ideas on making your closet look a little more appealing. Little touches make all the difference, as I am learning, and if you are in a place for this improvement, here is a suggestion.

Have you ever browsed through Poshmark and found those closets that are so organized with special labels that introduced their items? I have and always wanted to emulate the idea. One night I just had an epiphany and started using Canva to make simple photos that matched my brand. It was not anything really complex, just simple graphic design, using the app or any free apps out there. I had asked Posh support on how to label pantsuits. They really don’t have a category, and when the suits, skirts, etc., party comes, there is nowhere to put them. By making a picture I found that I could do this by labeling one way in the photo and tagging it in a different category.

 

Example :

 

Here I have made a graphic for Pantsuits but labeled it in the proper category. You can put it in the correct category to your liking as seen here.

By by using the drop-down you can get as creative as needed. It’s sort of like squeezing something into an adaptable category to get the job done.

I liked to look of the branding as well, and this leaves you some room to share more info and get your “look” out there.

After using the method for a week or so, I found an increase in organization. I could share however many pictures I wanted but still end with my graphic for that category. In other words, share a bracelet picture but end it with sharing that category graphic behind it, as Poshmark feed goes in reverse. This way you don’t have to share the entire group if you don’t want to. It is already changing the game, and I love it when creativity strikes. Epiphany!

Anyways, hope this has been of some help. I am thinking ahead of graphic – design related posts now, so please visit my website in the future for more Posh related posts!

Thanks for reading. Visit me on Poshmark as @mcglamorous.

Do You See What I SEE :: The Dangers of LED Lights

Do You See What I SEE :: The Dangers of LED Lights

For a while now I have been wanting to share a post on something that has personally affected my family and myself without us knowing it. It involves the dangers and long term effects of these new LED lights that we see everywhere now.Image of UVEX glasses

Being on the computer with my work has really opened my tired and sensitive eyes to something important for all of us out there that drive, work, and play. If you program or market with an iPad or tablet you may like this too. I cannot explain the science of it as well as in this article here from Dr. Mercola’s site. Link here : MERCOLA ARTICLE on LEDS  so I will leave that link here for exploration.

Here is what I do know from confirming personal experience. In the last year we have all been having trouble seeing more than usual. Even outdoors it seemed as though the rays of the light were a different shade, my left eye would worsen the longer I listed products online,  and sensitivity to light was bad. Driving at night was challenging, and car headlights (also LED) began to bother me. My Mom found this article from Mercola and I was so happy to see some of our changes working.

UVEX GlassesMy first recommendation here would be to go on Amazon and purchase you a pair of UVEX snyper glasses. They are Amber glasses that block out the blue light (see article) that is so harmful and comes from most lights we encounter on a daily basis. I would also recommend getting off of your phone and computer more often, but sometimes that is not as easy, so the glasses would be a good alternative. It also helps your vision by blocking the intensity of the light from the screen. According to a Men’s Health article this particular brand blocks more levels of light than some other brands. If you find one that does more I would love to know. This helped me a lot. Link here : UVEX Glasses

O.K. Secondly, please consider downloading a blue. Light blocking software. I tried Iris and liked it. Since we use an HDMI connection to our television from YouTube, it fed through the television and took an enormous amount of glare out of the room. I am very interested in finding a same technique for the computer, btw. It is not a bad price and the guy that created it believes in the cause. I’ll link that here : IRIS Software

Lastly, the control of all of this comes into play. I have been guilty of staying up too late watching music or studying, and as a web designer and artist that has always been the norm. Maybe this is the case for you as well, so I completely relate! We are night owls, and create and think better at those times. All is peaceful and meditative. The night is wonderful, why can I say? So taking the first baby step towards this improvement has to help.

The price of the glasses and software is nothing compared to losing vision and damaging health, and something like this creeps up on a generation before they know it. We all want to drive safer and be happier though health. Share this if you desire and maybe check back for upates.

Thanks for visiting this article, please share and follow me on all major accounts for articles like this in the future.

The Nutcracker :: What’s Your Flavor?

The Nutcracker :: What’s Your Flavor?

Nutcracker

Pink Ballerina Earrings
Dewdrop Deux

A million or more posts on the Nutcracker every season, and this is my first ever. I am a side-lined dancer for now, so I want to get in on this season’s premier of the movie with a jewelry twist.

Which part of the well-known ballet is your favorite? What’s your flavor. Coffee? Tea? Do you prefer the spicy flavors of the Orient or the sweet aromas of the land of sugarplums and candy canes? A fountain of creativity flows from our child-like minds when dwelling on the classic. Full of excitement and imagination, it gives a dreamer a reason to lie on the floor with Waltz of the Flowers playing in the background.

This year the Nutcrackers have been plentiful in stores, even reaching the rooted country atmosphere of south Georgia gift shops and drugs stores. McGlamorous site being no exception, I am posting our part on the marketing stage.

Purple Ballerina Bracelet
Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy

The designs are inspired by soldiers, ballerinas and pearls, and glitter and dance. They include bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, and can be purchased directly from the site, or can been seen in person at 30A Ballet in Seagrove Beach, Florida. A good friend has been kind enough to display and sell them in her wonderful new studio. They make great gifts for children in the arts, first time performers of the ballet, spring recital trinkets, and even graduation gifts for dancing teenage seniors. Teachers may also enjoy the gift of dance expressed in pearl form as well.

Blue Soldier Bracelet
Blue Nutcracker Soldier Bracelet

Pieces are a mix of  Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls, and a ballerina as a focal point, all with decorative metal clasps. Other pieces inspired by dance are also available on the site.

Take a peek this special season, and enjoy.

Thanks!
