I’m Speaking At The University of Arizona: Social Media Influencer vs. Celebrity

YAY! I could not be happier to go back to school and guest lecture my favorite people in the world a.k.a. future University of Arizona #wildcatsforlife about social media!

Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 2

Continued from my previous post….. Did you read it? You should right here. The next interesting issue from my previous post is about social media influencers turning celebrity. Not like Brad Pitt celeb status but more like a Tila Tequila celeb status. Usually these C-D-listers, so called celebs are so entitled that they are here one day and gone the next. Out faster than onesies for the holidays. In this case, these people are usually managed or have agents like the guy I met a while back and is now feeling “holier than thou” trying to sign “digital” talent. He… Continue Reading

Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 1

Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 1

This post was written a few months back while visiting Los Angeles (I got out for good this time because I served two full sentences there and have not looked back since) and I have been so busy that I did not get around to sharing then but am making time right now! This is an important post and describes the difference between a celebrity and influencer in snarky terms, of course. Ahh Hollywood. You never cease to provide me with ample amounts of snarky material to address on this here blog. I love you for that (and just that)…. Continue Reading

Throw a Pet Pawty With Evite Invitations & Win The #PawtyPeople Contest

OMG! Be forewarned, this is one of the cutest things you will read all day! Evite just launched a new Pet Party Themed category with invitations and correspondence cards. How cute is that? I can’t get enough of the options on the Evite site. Seriously? Where does one start? I wanted to throw a football pawty for Teddy since he is named after Teddy Bruschi (the football player, of course) and they had the cutest Evite on the site. Look! LOVE! Touchdown! But, the problem is there are no football games on right now and I want to throw Teddy… Continue Reading

Putting The Eye Back In MelanysGuydlines: Dr. Stephen Cohen Of Doctor My Eyes

Putting The Eye Back In MelanysGuydlines: Dr. Stephen Cohen Of Doctor My Eyes

Happy Friday! I know it has been a few weeks since I have written a post. This is the longest time since starting my blog that I haven’t posted and it feels a little weird and a little eye opening (pun intended). I had an accident on my way to the Blogpaws conference two weeks ago. I was rushing because I am always totally over-committed and stabbed myself in my left eye with a round bristle brush. It hurt. Badly. I was and am mad at myself that I created this injury and tried to shake it off the best… Continue Reading

So, if you missed it here is the mantra…… Sound like a plan? I do have a little wish though…. Continue Reading

Melany’s Mantra: Repeat, Rinse And Repeat

Melany's Mantra

Every morning I swear to repeat this mantra. I am going to print it out and hang on my mirror. It is the summer and I want to take some time for myself while still being able to do the things I WANT to do. This means not feeling obligated to do things others think I SHOULD be doing. Here we go. Cue the chanting music and theme lighting. Add a candle and throw in some incense but please spare me the Nag Champa. I think I left that scent back in San Francisco on Haight Street when I was… Continue Reading
