Domain & Hosting
It’s GoDaddy all the way! I’ve been using them for years and they have the best support, hands-down. I tried switching to one of the popular hosting providers often recommended by bloggers and the support was vile. I quickly realized it’s so highly-recommended because of how lucrative the affiliate program is. I want to be as transparent as possible: it was not a good experience!
GoDaddy is the #1 place for websites and hosting for a reason and I’ve never had a problem with them. Plus you can start a WordPress blog for just $1/month!

Styled Stock Photography
For your social media messages, newsletter, website or shop announcements, a great collection of styled stock photos is an absolute must. These are just a few of my favorite shops full of beautiful, girly desktops, flat lays and displays for showing off your pretty products. Not sure how to use styled stock photos? Just take a look around my website, a lot of the images you see are styled stock + text overlay! I’ll be posting a tutorial soon on the blog. You can also check out this awesome video tutorial.
