MUST-READ AMAZON PRIME BOOK HAUL

MUST-READ AMAZON PRIME BOOK HAUL

You stopped her because you want to know about MUST-READ AMAZON PRIME BOOK HAUL!

In this blog post, I will share my favorite books ever! 

You must know that those book series are total DARK FANTASY ROMANCE because that’s what I am obsessed with.

So, if you like vampires, witches, mysteries, fairy, hate to love, and love triangles, those books are for YOU!

Alright, now that you are mentally prepared let’s get right into my MUST-READ AMAZON PRIME BOOK HAUL.

 

1- THE CARAVAL SERIES

So, Welcome, welcome to the world of Caraval.

Stephanie Garber’s sweeping tale of the unbreakable bond between two sisters and the game that is more than what it seems…

So, BOOK 1: In Caraval, Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation to Caraval, the far-away, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, finally arrives…

Now, Book 2: In Legendary, the Dragna sisters should be celebrating, but Tella isn’t yet free. She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legend’s true name…

And, Book 3: In Finale, with lives, empires, and hearts hanging in the balance, Scarlett and Tella fight for their lives and for each other. There are no spectators this time: only those who will win, and those who will lose everything. All games must come to an end.

2- THE MARKED SERIES

Ok guys, before reading this one, I had my doubt.

But, OMG, that is so good!

Dark. Thrilling. Romantic.

My name is Jemma Blackburn and I have a secret. I know vampires are real. I watched one murder, my father eight months ago, and even though they tried to convince me it didn’t happen that I’d lost touch with reality due to the trauma, I know what I saw was real.

Hollow Hills is now the place I call home. It was supposed to be my chance at a normal life.

My chance to bury my secret and start over. But everyone around me is keeping their own secrets, whispering lies into my ears like promises, and one of them is about to turn my entire world upside down.

I thought I had it all figured out. I thought I had the answers. I thought I knew who I was. The truth is, I didn’t even know half of it. There’s a reason these vampires are still after me.

There’s a reason they will always hunt me. Because I’m not human.

I’m the devil they fear and the angel they crave.

The only problem is, I don’t know it yet.

Inception: (The Marked Book 1) 

Invidious: (The Marked Book 2) 

Iniquitous: (The Marked Book 3) 

Infernal: (The Marked Book 4) 

Incarnate: (The Marked Book 5) 

Incipient: (The Marked Book 6) 

3- THE ALL SOUL TRILOGY

So, here is one of my fave, witches, demons, and vampires!

Deborah Harkness’s sparkling debut, A Discovery of Witches, brought her into the spotlight and galvanized fans around the world.

In this tale of passion and obsession, Diana Bishop, a young scholar and a descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript, Ashmole 782, deep in Oxford’s Bodleian Library.

Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont.

4- THE SHADOW AND BONE TRILOGY

Umm hello, have you watched the Netflix show called Shadow and Bones? I loved it so much that I had to read the books!

Once again, So freaking good.

 

 

Soldier. Summoner. Saint. Orphaned and expendable, Alina Starkov is a soldier who knows she may not survive her first trek across the Shadow Fold a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters.

But when her regiment is attacked, Alina unleashes dormant magic, not even she knew she possessed.

Now Alina will enter a lavish world of royalty and intrigue as she trains with the Grisha, her country’s magical military elite, and falls under the spell of their notorious leader, the Darkling.

He believes Alina can summon a force capable of destroying the Shadow Fold and reuniting their war-ravaged country, but only if she can master her untamed gift.

As the threat to the kingdom mounts and Alina unlocks the secrets of her past, she will make a dangerous discovery that could threaten all she loves and the very future of a nation.

Welcome to Ravka . . . a world of science and superstition where nothing is what it seems.

5- THE SIX OF CROWS DUOLOGY

Let’s stay in the shadow and bone world and keep on going with the six of crows!!

Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price, and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker.

Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone. . . .

A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction―if they don’t kill each other first.

HOW TO BRAINSTORM YOUR PERSONAL BRAND

HOW TO BRAINSTORM YOUR PERSONAL BRAND

You stopped here because you want to know how to brainstorm your personal brand.

So, you might be serious about building your brand identity and hiring a brand designer to make your personal brand dream to life.

To make sure your brand designer or yourself, build a personal brand that matches your beliefs, your message, and yourself as a whole, you will need to brainstorm.

Now, when I say brainstorm, I mean big, huge, hard work on what is your desire about this personal brand.

This is going to represent YOU! Promote You and be a part of YOU.

So, let’s dive right into how to brainstorm your personal brand.

HOW TO BRAINSTORM YOUR PERSONAL BRAND

1 – COLOR PSYCHOLOGY

So, you are going to choose between 4 to 6 colors that will represent your brand.

Those colors are going to be used in everything you are going to create and share online.

So, it will be placed in your logo, banners, graphics, social media posts, etc.

Therefore, you need to make sure you are understating the color of your brand.

You need to look online at what is the meaning of the colors you are about to choose.

If it matches what you want to “show off” when people look at your brand, this is JACKPOT!

HOW TO BRAINSTORM YOUR PERSONAL BRAND

2 – MOOD BOARD

If you follow me on Instagram @justiinelamer, you will already know that mood boards are my favorites!

So, like a vision board, a mood board will help you visualize the vibe you’re going for.

But instead of setting goals for your life, you are setting up “a style, mood, vibe” to people that are going to look at your brand.

So, build your mood board with pictures, styles, textures, elements, and everything that you would like to incorporate into your personal brand.

3 – FONTS

Now, know that the fonts you are about to choose are as important as your color palette!

Because, same as the colors, you will use those fonts for EVERYTHING.

The goal here is to choose two fonts that will complete each other.

Your brand designer can help with that.

However, you can start looking on your side what kind of font style you want to go for.

There are so many different kinds of font you can look at, and this can be a little bit overwhelming.

I invite you to go to websites like Dafont.com or Google font and look at the different styles.

HOW TO BRAINSTORM YOUR PERSONAL BRAND

4- TAGLINE – BRAND MESSAGE

Here comes the most difficult part.

So, you will need to figure out your tagline.

A tagline will put you in a little box and will help people understand what you do.

For example, my brand is Justine Lamer! That’s my name, easy.

However, my tagline is Digital Marketing.

It says it all! Now, that’s your turn. Who are you? What do you do?

Then, once the tagline is set up, figure out what’s your brand message!

Basically, answer this question: Who do you help and how?

Thank you so much for reading about the HOW TO BRAINSTORM YOUR PERSONAL BRAND.

HOW TO BRING YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS IDEA TO LIFE

HOW TO BRING YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS IDEA TO LIFE

Yes, it is time for you to start your biz, and I am about to help you by sharing how to bring your online business idea to life.

So, you are here because you have been thinking of opening an online shop, starting your online consulting business, and or something else that requires you to seek information.

Your head is probably full of questions like: Should I do it? How do I start? Is it a good business idea anyway?

I am here to answer some of your interrogations and guide you into the first steps to bring your online business idea to life.

Let us dive right into it:

1- IS YOUR PRODUCT/SERVICE LEGIT?

So, my first tip is: Are you sure about your product or service?

You need to make sure that your business idea is legit and that you are going to launch a profitable business.

So, if you are not sure about your idea. If you are not sure what you are going to sell to people out there? try to answer these questions:

– What is my knowledge?

– What can I teach to people?

– What can I provide to my target, to my future clients?

So, for example, if you are very good at using social media, maybe you can help other people with their social media!

If you are very good at making Necklaces, maybe it is time to sell some Necklaces.

So, the point is, you need to figure out what are you going to do exactly? Who are you going to help?

The Important thing is to focus on one thing at a time, to bring this idea to life. You have to center your energy around these questions to start a successful online business.

2- WHAT IS YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS STATUS?

So, you need to figure out the status of your business!

How do you want to be seen out there as a business?

Do you want to be a sole proprietor? Meaning that your company is you.

There will be no distinction between you and your company. You are the company.

So, if something happens to your company, it also happens to you, personally.

That is how I started my business. I started as a Sole-Proprietor.

But you can also start as an LLC which is a Limited Liability company.

As an LLC, you are not liable for your business debt.

If you start as an LLC, you and your business are two different entities.

I advise you to do your research and choose what is best for you and your business.

3- WHAT ARE THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS IN YOUR STATE?

So, you will have requirements to open your online business.

Legally, what do you have to do to get your online business idea going?

Now, look at any permit, license, tax, and fees you need to get in your state.

In the state of Florida, I did not need to do anything to get my business going as a Sole-Proprietor. 

However, as an LLC, you need to register to the state!

4- WHAT PLATFORM ARE YOU GOING TO USE TO SELL YOUR PRODUCT/SERVICES?

Before bringing your business idea to life, you will need to think of where you want to sell your product or service?

So, if you sell a product, you will think of what kind of platform you are going to use, like Etsy, Shopify, or maybe your website.

If you are a service provider, what are you going to do? Are you going to make a landing page? 

Are you going to only talk about it on social media? 

Or are you going to build an entire website?

I filmed a video on how to start your website from scratch. In case you needed some help with that as well.

Now, you found your “what” and “why”, as well as your “how” and your “where”!

5- MAKE A BUSINESS PLAN

Now, you need to have a big serious business plan!

While making your business plan,  ask yourself: what’s going to happen before it happens?

You know exactly what you are going to sell and to who!

And you found out where you are going to sell it. You are aware of your “how” because of all the legal things you had to do to bring this business idea to life.

So, you are ready to go!

Now, let’s answer some more questions like:

– What do you need exactly to sell your product?

– What material do you need?

– What is going to be the expense?

– What is the price of your services/products?

– Why are people going to choose you instead of others?

– What kind of value are you going to bring? 

Do you understand what I mean? That is your final touch!

So, make a plan and know what is going to be your marketing strategy.

You have to start looking at what social media platform is the best for you and your business.

6- GET STARTED

YES, get started, just do it! Even if, it’s not perfect, your website is halfway done, and this is not the design you wanted for your brand.

Simply, start, you have to do it now, and don’t be scared to talk about it on social media!

No one cares about the looks, and no one knows if you are completely ready or not.

So, you know what we said: fake it before you make it!

Thank you so much for reading about how to bring your business idea to life.

WORK FROM HOME PRODUCTIVITY TIPS USING YOUR PHONE

WORK FROM HOME PRODUCTIVITY TIPS USING YOUR PHONE

You stopped here because, like me, you need some work from home productivity tips using your phone.

You are probably thinking, “OMG” that’s the first time I am reading an article that says productivity and phone in the same sentence.

So, yes listen up, my work from home friends, IT IS POSSIBLE to be productive working from home while using your phone.

Here is my work from home productivity tips using your phone.

Let’s go.

WORK FROM HOME TIPS USING YOUR PHONE

1- USE A TIMER

Here is how:

The first tip I can give you is this: USE THE TIMER on your phone!!

Break down your day and set up a timer for each task you need to accomplish.

For example, say you want to focus on writing a blog post and you need to do it fast.

Then, take your phone and set up a 30-minute timer.

During this time, you will only focus on writing.

Once your timer goes on, set another one for a 15-minute break and keep on going like this until you are done with your to-do list.

2- DOWNLOAD PRODUCTIVITY APPS

Here is how:

The best tip I am sharing today is this one: don’t underestimate the power of apps.

There are so many productivity apps out there you can download for free to get things done quickly working from home using your phone.

Let me share a couple of them:

Trello: Organization tool! Be productive by organizing each day, writing ideas, and managing your time.

To-Do ist: Write a to-do list on your phone with reminders, notes, images, labels, and more.

Flora: Habit tracker. This app will help you focus on the task you need to achieve.

3- USE THE DO NOT DISTURB OPTION

Here is how:

Did you know you had a “do not disturb” option on your phone?

USE IT! If you are always bothered by notifications and especially if you get distracted by them. This option is awesome.

I am using do not disturb every time I need to deep focus on one task.

Usually, I do the “do not disturb” option for an hour while filming a video or writing a blog post.

That helps me keep focus and not looking at my phone or other windows open on my computer.

So, try it for yourself.

4- SET UP YOUR PHONE CALENDAR FOR SUCCESS

Here is how:

There are multiple calendars you can use to get your work from home life easier and be productive throughout the day.

So, use the calendar by default on your phone or google calendar.

Here is what you are going to do. Take your phone, open the calendar of your choice, and start making “sections”

By breaking down your day, by task, your productivity will SkyRock.

Let say that day you need to film a video, make a product, and answer emails.

So, in your calendar, you are going to block 9 to 11 am to film as many videos as you can.

Then, block 1 to 3 pm to think of your product and block 30 minutes to answer some emails.

Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!

It’s a great way to stay organized and productive!

In this blog post, we are going to focus on “Mask”. What is Mask, and how to use it?

How to use mask in the over app

1- WHAT MASK MEANS?

So, let’s talk about Graphic Design! And Let’s talk about “Mask”

Disclaimer: I am using Over “pro” and pay $99.99/year.

In the free version of Over, “Mask” is available.  So, don’t worry.

My definition of “Mask” will be: It’s an eraser.

So, basically, it “Mask” the part that you don’t want to see in an image or a picture.

Here is the definition of “Mask” from Over: Hide areas from a layer, revealing the image underneath. Great for hiding pesky background, items, or making text stand out!

2- WHERE TO FIND "MASK" IN OVER

From a picture:

So, once you opened the app and selected your picture.

You need to click on the picture and select “edit”

Now, you are in editing mode for this layer.

So, scroll on the bottom of your screen to find “Mask”

You will find it in between “Nudge” and “Blend”

3- HOW TO USE MASK IN THE OVER APP

Here is how:

So, once you have selected MASK, you will see 4 different circles.

The circle that is full will erase the picture with a sharp edge!

The circle that is blurry will erase (mask) with a smooth edge.

So, those circles, are the erasing circles.

Now, the two other circles that are not “filled” are made to “restore/unmask”.

The blurry one will unmask with a smooth edge, and the other one will restore with a sharp edge.

So, to make those circle “smaller” and be able to erase some details, you will need to zoom into your picture.

7 AMAZON MUST HAVE FOR YOUR HOME OFFICE

7 amazon must have for your home office

I am so excited to share the 7 Amazon must have for your home office. 

If you work from home, you want to know about all the accessories and must-haves from Amazon for your home office!

So, let’s make some practical and useful purchases.

7 amazon must have for your home office

DESK WITH HUTCH

So, let’s start with the obvious thing you need from Amazon in your Home Office. 

A desk! Yes, but a desk with a Hutch. This Desk is the biggest desk I have ever own, and I love it.

It is big, has lots of drawers and spaces. I love that this is a corner desk and it has USB ports on the top of it.

This desk comes in multiple colors. 

CLICK HERE FOR MY DESK – $502

LAPTOP STAND

So, I just bought this laptop stand for Black Friday and it changed my way of working on my computer.

I can stand up and work like that (because of perfect height), but I also have a better posture when sitting on my office chair.

Laptop Stand for Desk – $24

PORTABLE MONITOR

I don’t know about you, but working from home for me is involving a lot of screen time.

So, I own an iPad, MacBook Pro, iPhone and I added another Portable Monitor to my collection that connects to my Mac.

It has been helping a lot with my workflow. I can look at my email on one screen, and keep designing on the other one. 

Extremely Practical!

Portable Monitor – $100

LARGE MOUSE PAD

Alright, quick fact about this mouse pad.

My husband is a PC Gamer. So, he bought this huge mouse pad to play video games.

Now, this is on my desk, because I used it once and loved it. 

This is awesome to be able to use your mouse everywhere on your desk! 

Mouse Pad – $28

IPAD/PHONE STAND

So, like my laptop stand, having an iPad stand on my desk has been so helpful. I can have my iPad and my computer close to each other and ready to go.

iPad Stand – $15

AMAZON ALEXA

So, if you don’t have Alexa or Google Mini in your home, get one!

Whatever brand you like, having one of those in your office will help a lot with your productivity.

I ask Alexa, what’s on my calendar for the day, set reminders for things to do, and tell her to set a timer to get some of my work done faster.

You can even ask her to play your favorite focus playlist from Spotify! This is super handy.

Alexa Echo Dot – $34

HP PRINTER

Even if you’re not printing a lot for work, having a printer in your home office is a must-have!

It’s here if you need it, and trust me you will.

I love to print my invoices and keep a paper version for my taxes.

My Printer also let me print really good quality pictures!

HP Printer – $160
