‘Tis the Season with Tagspire!

The holiday season starts unbelievably early for a blogger. In fact I was thinking about stocking stuffers and attending holiday previews before the first fourth of July burger hit the grill! It’s all fun, exhausting work, and I love every minute of it but as bloggers it’s important to find ways to monetize our time and effort. Then along came Tagspire! I found out about Tagspire this fall prior to attending InStyle’s Celebrate InStyle event. Basically, Tagspire is a social commerce tool – a way to turn your social klout into cash!


If you’re a blogger, or just someone who loves to talk about and share their favorite products on social media – then you’re going to want to sign up for Tagspire right away. Tagspire enables you to tag a photo with links to purchase the product in the photo, view a video related to the product in the photo, and more! When someone purchases a product through your tag you earn a commission! For instance, I know my holiday season will be full of festive parties (yup, I have a large large family) and there are a few products in my arsenal that I know will help me look my best. One of these products is Jergen’s Body BB Cream! So once I log onto the Tagspire website, I upload the picture of my Jergen’s Body BB Cream…


Add two tags – one for the light version, and one for the medium to dark version… grab the code and tah-dah! Here is is!

Another product I rely on is my Kevyn Aucoin Eyelash Curler – or as I like to call it, the best eyelash curler in the world! It grips and curls your lashes painlessly and perfectly – I don’t know how I’d survive the holiday season without it. Or any season for that matter. Here it is, all tagged up – feel free to follow the link and pick up one of your own! ;)

I’m in love with Tagspire, it’s just so easy to navigate and really I’ve been looking for a platform/service like this for ages! I definitely encourage you to give Tagspire a go, especially now that we’re heading into the busiest time of online sales. To find out more, check out Tagspire’s video below:

Tagspire has a minimum $50 commission payout, you can incorporate multiple tags within a photo and you can monetize through multiple categories (not just beauty, in case you were wondering). To sign up and find out more click here!

BlogHer ’12, Part 2!

Day two was also a super eventful day for me. I started my morning off pretty late, so I didn’t get to the expo as early as I had hoped. I ended up trying and failing to meet up with Megan, but ended up meeting one of the nicest, funniest bloggers as I was wandering around – Lorrie Fenn – formerly of The Token Fat Girl, and now the creator and editor of her own online magazine Beautiful Layers! We ended up eating So Delicious ice cream bars and chatting up the Universal Studios The Host movie representative. She then took me up to the 42nd floor, to the suites that I had so forgetfully neglected. Thanks Lorrie- I probably wouldn’t have gone if you hadn’t reminded me!

Later in the afternoon I headed to the Tweet Suite – an event held by Enza (of enzasbargains) and Kristy (of adventuresofacouponista). I loved meeting the various sponsors- but most of all, I loved chatting with the editor of Health magazine! Towards the end of the event I even bumped into my friend Cinny - who btw does some seriously amazing foodie experience posts on her site – linked here!

After the Tweet Suite, me and Cinny walked back up to the Hilton and I showed her around one of the expo halls (having gotten the lay of the land) – which is where I picked up the most adorable swag that BlogHer ’12 had to offer – Herbie the Hot Pocket!

Some honorable mentions in the way of expo hall brands goes to Weleda – their booth smelled insanely good, and I just fell in love with their lotions, Martha Stewart and Staples – they had a gorgeous set up, and the representative that was there was really nice, Rickland Orchards Greek Yogurt Bars – not only were their bars extremely good, but their rep was amazing!

Cinny had to drop off her bags with a friend, so I continued my tour of another expo hall. Somewhere between the Bailey’s Irish Cream booth (yum!) and the Land ‘O Lakes booth (also yum!) I lost my phone. After nearly having a heart attack, and sorting through all my bags twice, I retraced my steps and found that I had left it at the Udi’s Gluten Free booth. The reps there were as happy as I was when I picked up my phone! One of the reps laughed, “I’m SO happy you came back! You’ve missed a lot of calls you know!”

As the expo hall was closing I bumped into Cinny and Jen from That Long Yellow Line – we chatted and discussed all the cool booths we had seen (like Jen, who had won a giftcard at the Retal Me Not booth – I was super jealous!).  And then I went off to meet my sister who was my date to…

A red carpet advance screening with The MOMs and One2One Network (which I’m a part of!) of Won’t Back Down starring Viola Davis, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Holly Hunter, and Rosie Perez! The stars were really nice and down-to-earth, and were especially open to discussing such a controversial subject as education. Here’s a video from the event:

The movie comes out September 28th!

I was completely exhausted by the time I got home, but I still had one day left to BlogHer and I sure wasn’t going to miss it- so stay tuned for BlogHer ’12 Part 3!

*Special mention goes to the kind folks at for providing me with amazing (and quite popular) magnetic business cards! They also do yard signs, signs, bumper stickers, custom signs, and canvas pictures!
