I created this page to have all of the companies, products and services I use and recommend in one place. Everything listed here, I use. This page does have affiliate links which means I may receive some ‘compensation’ for pointing you in their direction. But no worries, this is at no extra cost to you! You may even get some cheaper deals!

Blogging & Design

Blue Host – WordPress Hosting
I use Blue Host to host this blog! With Blue Host, you get a free domain. Holler! Blue Host made it simple to install WordPress and transfer my old domain. I also really enjoy the customer service if I have any issues (which is very rare) and the easy to use interface. I highly recommend Blue Host when starting a blog.

Bluehost.com Web Hosting $3.95

 

99Designs.com
99Designs is a really great website for freelance designers and those who need designs. I use 99Designs as a designer so I pitch my ideas in hopes of being selected as the project’s designer. If you’re a blogger, this would come in handy if you need ANYTHING designed. Sign up for an account, post a project and you’ll soon have hundreds of designers pitching you their ideas.

 

MailChimp
I use MailChimp as my email services. Not only do they have great branding and a killer interface that’s easy to use, they have a ton of great features to help you create emails. They have interesting template designs you can use or you can easily design your own. I am able to schedule my emails and use A/B testing. MailChimp also has analytics so you can understand how your viewers are using your email! It’s also been really easy to integrate into my WordPress widgets.

 

Photography

Canon EOS 80D Digital SLR Camera
I am a photographer on the side and I take my own photos for my blog. I use the Canon EOS 80D along with a couple of lenses : Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Medium Telephoto Lens and a Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Lens. The first lens is for shooting the details of products but is my favorite lens for portrait photography. The second lens has a wider view so I can capture the entire scene. The next lens on my list would be this Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens. It would be right in the middle of the two lenses I already have, and honestly should have been the first lens I got! If you ever have any photography questions, feel free to ask!

 


Everyday Life

Amazon Prime
I have used Amazon Prime since 2011. I am their biggest fan! I use my Kindle and Firestick every single day. I love the 2 day shipping and the fact that Amazon has everything. It comes in handy for ordering products for my Etsy shop and day-to-day needs. If you own a business, Amazon Prime is an absolute must but I have used it for personal purchases since I was 18! Again, I love Amazon and would promote their website even if I was not an affiliate!
