Friday 411 & the Site Everyone is Talking About

It’s time for a Friday 411! Tips, fashion updates and news starting with a new site I’ve heard so much about this week. It’s called theSkimm started by two former female NBC employees. It’s a simple, clever and easy-to-read AM email of daily news from around the world that will make you feel smarter without having to read a newspaper and have you prepped to jump into a March Madness convo at Happy Hour without watching Sportscenter (because these ladies do it for you).

Up Next, Your Friday411 in Instagram

1. Today is World Water Day ~ People all around the world take action to raise awareness on water issues.’ Follow @CharityWater to learn more about donating water to countries in need. (Pictured above: my new favorite bottled water ever Liz by Hassia)

2. Blogger & Branding Secrets ~ A. The power of Tee’s. Even the girls of the Skimm have T’s and branded watches. From tech startups, to my favorite sandwich shop, Ike’s Place and The City Supply Co., people love Tee’s! TShirtPrinting.org sent me this personalized tee and can print your logo on all types of clothing. B. If you’re a blogger, reach out to brands you love. If you mention them on your blog, tweet the company, post on FB or email their PR team. This helped me become a brand ambassador for Cruciani bracelets made in Italy and worn by women all over Europe. This one from their new Psy collection is making it’s way to Cali. (From collaborations to sponsorships now or in the future for you and your blog, being proactive is key.)

3. 1st Floral Friday of Spring ~ Feeling blah or just want to give your bedroom a boost this weekend? Try brunch and a Saturday morning farmer’s market for the blooming bouquet of your choice like these tulips I spotted in Switzerland today.

4. Savvy Sleepers Goes International ~ I met with salon owners in London this week (like Anthony’s barbershop above) and Savvy Sleepers luxury satin pillow cases will be available soon in select cities throughout Europe. The easiest way to order now is online at SavvySleepers.com. Start Spring with smoother hair and wake up refreshed every morning on plush satin, save 20% when using promo code ‘SleepBetter‘ at checkout.

Hope you have a great Friday and sign up for the Skimm HERE

  5. theSkimm is definitely one of the best things I found this week! It really has been everywhere lately, which is awesome. I’m excited to see your posts on branding – I’m sure some things hold true whether it’s for a blog or a more traditional sort of business, which makes it all the more interesting.
