Lattes with Lovely // vol. 1, week 3

Lattes with Lovely // vol. 1, week 3

Hi friends! It’s been a bit since the last Lattes with Lovely! I mentioned last week that I’ve been working on refreshing the blog and restrategizing the content I share. My goal is to make this a place of inspiration for you, refreshes your whole person, houses evergreen content, a space that you look forward to coming to after a long day at work, and that offers you an escape from the norm. I hope this week has been a positive preview of what’s to come on Life with Lovely.

This week on Instagram, I shared two major announcements. The first is that I am launching a monthly newsletter! I’m so excited and hope this will be a more intimate space for us to connect. I’ll also be sending exclusive content and resources via the newsletter, such as presets, ebooks, courses, q&a, etc. The best part is that YOU will be the one voting on what you want me to include in the newsletter. The first newsletter will be in April and will include 5 of my Lightroom presets and the email pitches I send to brands that have led to 4-figure brand partnerships. Be sure to sign-up 🙂

The other big news I shared is that I have begun the process of applying for a Ph.D.! I polled Instagram to see if you would be interested in me sharing my journey through the application process and over 75% of you said yes! I’ll be adding a section to the blog for graduate school and Ph.D. resources in the coming weeks.

Lastly, I hope you all have a lovely weekend & are staying healthy!

Cheers to a lovely weekend!
