Bark at the Park 2017 Oakland Athletics Manicure

It’s that time for my annual Oakland Athletics themed manicure!  This year, the first game I’ve gone to all season is my first Bark at the Park game with Pixel!  We went with my best friend Rachel and her pup Appa and had a great time.  Of course, I made them both cute baseball green & gold tutus and made Pixel & myself some matching bling, but I was torn when it came to my nails.  Dog themed or Oakland Athletic’s themed?  As the little girl in the taco shell commercials says, porque no los dos?

#EntrepreneurLife Ain’t Easy

Just like pimpin’, that #EntrepreneurLife ain’t easy.  While I’ve been in the market for a new “opportunity” for a year now, I think it took about 4 months for me to come to the realization that I needed to just do this on my own and stop relying on another outsourced program management agency to hire me.  Over the last 8 months I’ve been able to really dial in on my pitch, my merchant recruitment methods, and work on how I want to structure my own brand of affiliate program management, without the confines of someone else’s work styles or resource limits.

5 Unique Gifts for Mother’s Day

Lately I’ve been doing a LOT of promotion of my own stuff, so I thought I’d take a break and show you some unique gifts that your Mom will love that I DIDN’T make!  I mean, she’d love my stuff too, but that’s beside the point.  Amazon has done a great job of showcasing what they call “Interesting finds” and I’m obsessed with browsing through them.  But of course, while Amazon might be one of the more convenient sites to order from, there are other retailers out there with great unique gifts!  Here’s 5 unique gifts for Mother’s Day you might consider this year.

Purchase Pink Ribbon Designs to Fight Breast Cancer

One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.  According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide.  I’ve known a few women in my time that have been diagnosed and otherwise affected.  It’s for them that I’ve created some Pink Ribbon designs.  It’s also for them that, for the next two weeks, I’ll be donating 50% of the sales from my Pink Ribbon designs to Liz Fogg for her journey to walk the AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer in Washington DC.

Baby Dumbo Baby Shower

It’s taken me a while to get my thoughts together to tell you about the Baby Dumbo Baby Shower I helped throw for one of my best friends, Lorenza.  This happened back in January, and for a long time I was really hard on myself that I’d dropped the ball with some things.  Now that time has passed and her baby boy is due to be born in 10 days, I’ve collected my thoughts to tell you the good stuff!

Help Me Pay Bills by Online Shopping
I’m not sure if I’ve shared this here on my blog or not, but I’m attempting to start my own consulting firm offering Affiliate Program Management.  It’s what I’ve been doing for 10 years, why I started this blog in the first place back in 2008, etc.  If you want to check that out, visit Blinkstar Media.  However, since we’re in the final month of the year and Black Friday & Cyber Monday have already passed, it’s not a great time of year to find new clients so I’m looking to supplement my income in some creative ways.
