16 Creative Blog Post Ideas

This is such a fun post. I’ve written plenty of them on different platforms and could continuously make note of all these ideas in my head. A long time ago I would have never mentioned writing things down in a notebook. Like, um…..who carries a pen and paper everywhere they go?! You do now. I will seriously write on the back of a receipt if I have to with a sharpie just to remember to post something. Must be old age. No….we just get busy with other things and tend to forget what’s really important to us when blogging. So, here’s 16 creative ways to create blog posts out of nothing! Or is it something…..I don’t know but let’s go……..

CREATIVE BLOG POST IDEAS

  • Coffee Shop Experiences- this is an obvious one and you may think, “How can I possibly create a blog post out of one order of coffee at my local coffee house?” It’s totally possible. People love seeing where you go. Take the cam, wear something cute, bring a friend and order that specialty coffee. Take a variety of pictures of the coffee, you holding it and/or however you want to go about this and be creative. Capture some snaps of their menu, the display case, the lines, the view outside and then talk about your experience. Tell us how your week was in this post, about a day in the life……you get it!
  • Room Makeover– these are so totally fun and you now have an excuse to get that room in order. So you’ve been dying to get new decor, furniture, update that DIY piece, etc….and now you can actually put the work into play. Take before + afters. Everyone loves a good makeover story.
  • How To’s + DIY’s- everyone searches the internet to find out how to do something. Here’s your chance to make your blog grow and really entertain your audience. How to make a blanket, a coffee, soap, scrubs, there’s an endless amount of things that you know about; you just have to put them in writing.
  • Theme Days- I’m not good at this because by the time Sunday rolls around, it’s really already Monday. People still enjoy theme days. I want you to be creative and do your own thang! Don’t do a Tasty Tuesday because everyone else does. I know weekend vibes are a pretty popular hashtag but does anyone else write about this theme? I am working on getting better, so we will do this together.
  • Trips Be Like- I love a good travel post. I’m sure everyone else does too. When we get to see where you’ve been, what you’ve explored and how you experienced it is really a gift to us. We don’t get to see exciting places, exotic foods and other cultures. Share your travel journeys.
  • Review It Like A Boss- product reviews can actually get boring if you don’t know how to present them. I make the post more exciting when I word the topic title differently but writing a post about a product you love is really one great way to fill in your gaps between topics and have something to talk about. Instead of saying, “Beach Bum Product Review” in your post title, say something like this: Top 5 Sunscreen’s For Summer 2019. Or, 13 Great Ways To Do Your Hair With Dry Shampoo. You get the drift.
  • House Tours- These are fun. If you don’t want to do a whole house tour, do a room tour.
  • Foodies Gonna Be Foodies- I’m not a fan of writing about food but you know damn sure I’m gonna drool over those dishes. I typically only share nice dinner dates and such, but for you my friends; when all else fails……POST ABOUT FOOD! We’ve all been to a really nice restaurant where the plate looks incredibly delish. Snap a few photos of the table setting and don’t forget the drinks. If you’re recipe savvy you can whip up some really fab posts about your desserts, dinners and breakfast.
  • Get Personal- I’m not saying pour your heart out with every detail of your personal lives, I’m just saying……be you, be real. We’re going to have days when we need to write about something. For all you know, the woman in the stall next to you is dealing with the same shit. You can use your blog as a diary so to speak. Every now and again share your real life.

Blog Post Ideas For The Full Time Bloggers

  • Goals- A well written post about your future goals will really help you achieve them. I often remind myself that I made a list just recently when I started this site because I wanted to focus on the purpose and draw out my plans. If you need to post about ‘something’ then even monthly goals is a good enough topic.
  • Animals- We all have animals right? No?! This falls into the theme category kind of. If you love pets as much as we do, everyone loves to know about them, read about them and look at gorgeous pics of them.
  • Fashion Icon- EVERYONE loves a great stylist. I’m not that creative when it comes to clothing and jewelry but get inspired, slap on that beautiful blouse, grab some flowers, a coffee and a handbag and talk about the brands, your day, where you went, etc.
  • Beauty/Morning Routines- Trending is beauty and morning routines. I am rather boring but I bet you could find a way to write nearly 900 word posts about your beauty and mornings.
  • Cocktail Recipe- This might be my fave thing to create when I need a good post to throw out. Um, hello…..who doesn’t love a juicy, sweet and flavorful mixed ( or virgin ) drink recipe.
  • Hauls- This is such a popular topic on YouTube but if you’re not ready to get in front of the camera to post a video of your shopping experience, just post in writing on your blog. There’s all kinds of websites with ideas as well. Just click your favorite go to shopping site and read their blogs for inspo.

16 Creative Blog Post Ideas

  • Classes + E-Courses- I love a free ecourse or even paid classes that I can attend. If you are interested in creating your own or even if you just need something to post about, you can share like 18 online classes that you find worthy of posting.

If you are still struggling with ideas, scroll Pinterest, IG, and other blogs to grab ideas ( not steal the same exact thing )…..until next time……drink more coffee!

5 Reasons To Say More Coffee Please

coffee creamer recipes

I love the weekends. It’s my absolute favorite time to have coffee dates and walk around my go to stores with a cute cup in hand. If you’ve been dying to get out of the house or even stay indoors for that matter, here’s 5 reasons you can say, ‘More Coffee Please!’ The heat index got nothing on us iced coffee lovers. I either spend my weekends thrifting, walking Home Goods stores or scouring rummage sales. When I do stay home I find ways to get crafty and mix up some coffee related concoctions. If you follow our IG you may have seen that I attempted some soap making not too long ago.

Coffee is not just for morning my friends! It’s an all day kinda thang over here.

Skip the Target run and done for later, this weekend we’re going all out of our Starbucks element. { the reason I’m saying this is because the local Starbucks closed and the only one near is in Target, um NO! } I don’t particularly care about running into Target just to grab a damn coffee…..y’all know I’ma rack up a $100 bill in a matter of ten minutes, so not today friends.

  • It’s Hella Hot Outside- and we must take the dogs out. I mean what better excuse than to make that iced coffee. Have your packets ready, throw some ice in a water bottle and fill that baby up! I cannot tell you how delicious iced coffee tastes when it’s this scorching——-ahhhh!

5 Reasons to Say More Coffee Please

  • You have a new outfit you’re wearing and what goes better as an accessory?!……..You bet! Coffee Coffee Coffee. I know that one of my 2019 goals was to get more fashion posts out there and slowly but surely I will. I have been learning how to deal with my body since my gallbladder removal and as soon as I’m feeling 100, I’m busting out more OOTDFASH posts!
  • Early Bird Gets The Worm– Yeah, so I know I said up there that coffee isn’t just for mornings but set the alarm early and hit those summer garage sales. Make a date out of it and go thrift. There’s nothing better than a jolt of energy from your yummy coffee drinks and the thrill of finding good deals. BTW: bring a friend……it’s funner + better with someone you love.
  • You’re ready for change- this is a super fabulous way to need more coffee! I cannot tell you enough how just having a cup of joe each and every day has changed my life. If you are a rare coffee drinker or don’t drink it at all and you’re seeking something to fulfill your lives, try this simple drink. I promise it will change you forever. All the more reason to meet for coffee dates.
  • Mompreneurs- organize a local mom challenge to get together once a week and share your goals, your success, your future desires, work life, the babies. This is a necessary coffee date. To make it even better let one or two moms buy everyone in the group the coffee for that week and that way each week someone else is treating you, you’re making new friends, gaining business ideas and you have an excuse to say, more coffee please. You can host at your home ( and a new moms home each week ), take turns….it’s so fun!

With our busy lives it’s really important that we take these moments to capture simplicity, have another cup of coffee and just chill. Life passes by so fast. I really love meeting new women, moms who love coffee dates ( even if it’s with ourselves ) and supporting our small businesses. Share your weekend with us in the comments.

Boozy Summer Coffee Drinks: 5 Tipsy Cocktails

What’s a summer without some liquor. I mean, more coffee please! I’m not a hard core boozed up kinda gal but I do like some mixed drinks every now and again. Summer is all about those famous iced coffee drinks and well, let’s face it……that can get boring after time. So, let’s boozy up with these top iced coffee drinks mixed with my all time favorite; Kahlua and Rum Chata.

For starters we have the PLAIN JANE:

Rumchata Iced Coffee– fill a 6 oz. glass with ice, pour chilled coffee over ice and add about 1 tsp of rumchata. That’s as boozy as you gon’ get!

Well maybe not as boozy…..just wait until we start adding the vodka. I’m extremely sensitive to certain brands of vodka so I tend to steer from adding that specific liquor to any of my drinks. Unless it’s very little, so I’ll share a minute portion if you’re anything like myself.

The Coffee Craze– take an 8 oz. glass and fill with ice, pour less than 1 oz. of vanilla vodka on the bottom, 1 tbsp of coffee liqueur, an espresso shot and sugar for the rim.

You may also want to try this :

Mocha Madness– Where’s all my chocolate lovers at?! Not everyday but often, I get that mocha craving and by all means, let’s splurge. You’ll need: a cup of ice, chilled brewed coffee ( you can use leftovers from the morning before ), an espresso shot, 2 shots of chocolate liqueur, whipped cream for topping and some shredded chocolate pieces to garnish. Hello Yum.

The Olden Days– Combine espresso, bourbon, simple syrup and ice in a shaker and mix. After pouring in glass dash some Angostura bitters on top and serve!

For more fun coffee drinks, subscribe and like our blog. We love hearing what you drink, so comment below and let us know your favorite summertime go to ( virgin or not ). Be sure to follow us on IG, FB and Twitter. See you next time.

How To Make Your Nails Grow Extremely Fast || This One Thing Does The Trick

longer nails faster

As a house cleaner, it was always hard for my nails to grow and it really put my insecurities into overdrive. I wanted nothing more than to be attractive and our nails are super important as far as appearance goes. Being female, I like to look and feel like a woman, so when my nails were not growing and the paint would constantly chip off, I knew that my job was in jeopardy. Until one day when I started cleaning with a new product and a few days later I noticed my fingernails were longer. Wait, what is going on here!? I looked down and was in shock. You guys have no idea what it has been like these past two years not having nails.

I researched ways to grow your nails fast ( just out of curiosity ) and to my surprise, I couldn’t find anyone that shared tips with this one ingredient. However, here’s a great read for several other ways to grow your nails naturally.

Often times I have to remind myself to use this because if I don’t and continue to wear gloves, use chemicals and scrub in this cleaning business then my nails are obviously going to suffer. And we do not want that. I never cleaned with white vinegar before because of the smell, number one and I just never thought that it could truly clean the way that I needed it to. Anyways, there’s no scientific proof that it disinfects. Or is there?

So, I was curious after reading so many comments on threads that referred to cleaning practically everything with vinegar and needed to test it out for sure. I clean with other products as well. But, I ran some lukewarm water to scrub my hands after removing my gloves and the bottle of vinegar was sitting right next to me…..I just grabbed it and poured some over my hands to remove any harsh smells. It’s nearly everyday that I have some kind of OCD with my hands smelling a certain way. I wash them with Dawn Dish Soap and use a scrubby brush to rid the germs, etc. Then I wash again with antibacterial soap. It normally takes a good day for my hands to not smell like chemicals even if I wear gloves.

Not anymore! Thank the heavens for White Distilled Vinegar. I now buy the jugs because I pretty much need it for everything.

I dump onto my fingernails to :

a.) stop biting them

b.) disinfect any germs that might be in there after cleaning toilets all day

c.) make them grow

After a couple of days of doing this, my nails were instantly longer. I cannot even tell you how amazing this is for someone who had ugly fingernails. It’s genius.

WHITE VINEGAR TO GROW YOUR NAILS

Here’s how it works:

  • pour white vinegar directly onto your fingertips at least twice a day ( only once if you’re not in a rush )
  • do NOT rinse off right away – allow the vinegar to actually work. You can dab your hands and fingertips onto a dry towel to remove the excess but don’t wipe completely dry…allow to air dry
  • refrain from washing your hands for a couple of hours to get the best results
  • use as needed
  • repeat as necessary and watch your nails grow so fast

This is the only thing that absolutely works really fast for nail growing. It’s simple and easy, not messy at all. Especially try this if you’ve been biting your nails even with clear nail polish on. It’s truly been a life savor for me.

Other tips to growing your nails and keeping them long + strong:

  • file daily
  • rub cuticle cream on them
  • clip hangnails asap
  • whenever you get the urge to bite, do the vinegar rinse

Have you tried this? It is fantastic. Do tell us your experience below!!! Happy Nails To You.

Disclaimer: I am NOT a doctor nor do I recommend you doing this if you cannot handle the burn, tingling sensation vinegar causes. Do not use on open cuts or wounds….although it may help heal faster…..just my opinions. Use at your own risk!
