Introducing you to - PAKcommunicatie

Hi There.....Are you on Instagram?

I am and I actually am starting to like it more every day πŸ˜ƒ

I do remember how hard I found it to be in the beginning. I just didn't know where and how to start. I do feel like I am slowly getting the hang of it now. But recently I came across this website https://pakcommunicatie.nl/. They offer online training on Instagram and Facebook.

I can hear you thinking though.....Isn't Instagram something for young people? But I can't agree with you on this, especially not when you have a small shop or brand to represent. They say that it is the fastest growing Social channel these days πŸ˜„

Can you imagine this was my first Instagram post


I didn't use any tags.....haha.....but I did get one comment from a friend πŸ˜‰

So I decided last week to take PAK's advanced Instagram course. The training program consists of seven different modules.

1. Social Selling
This module is about establishing (new) online relationships through Instagram: social selling. What is the point of social selling? and what to look out for with social selling on Instagram.

2. Determining strategy
What do you intend to use Instagram for and how to accomplish that? Your Instagram strategy is a part of your social media marketing plan and depends on your business goals. But how to determine your strategy?

3. Social Media Calendar
Having a business takes time and you are already busy with a lot. Logical that you can't always reflect on every passing moment when you should interact on the Social Calendar. You get a handy calendar to keep track and find content for these days.

4. Working with Influencers
The power of influencer-marketing is that the influencer has a one on one relationship with the target audience of your brand. Working with influencers is something that attracts a lot of businesses, but not every influencer will be fit for your brand.

5. Making Ads
Instagram offers a lot of different ways to advertise. Through advertising, you expand your reach and the name of your business or brand. With your story, you could reach more customers and make sure your target group gets involved with your brand. How to make good ads on your Instagram?

6. Instabots and fake followers
What are instabots and why are they used? What about your fake followers and fake likes on Instagram? How to recognize those?

7. Trends and figures Instagram 2019
If you have a business profile then you can view your statistics on Instagram. You get information about the demographic data from your followers, what pictures score the best, what is the best timing for your posts and how large your range was in the past week. This information is very handy and we will learn everything about that in this module.

I have to say I learned a lot of things I didn't really know before. And they explain it with a lot of examples. You know I have always had a business profile but it was just now that I learned that you could view your statistics. The course was very detailed.....so if you ask me.....it was money well spent πŸ˜ƒ

One down point maybe for you is that the course is in Dutch. But maybe some point in time they will start translating it to English.

Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great weekend

Introducing you to - Dotpaint Academy

Hi There.....Have you ever heard about Dot painting?

I had never heard of it. So let me tell you a bit more about it 😊

Actually, it was a traditional drawing and painting technique from the Australian Aboriginals. It's a form of art that brings peace and tranquility. It raises awareness and brings you back to your true self.

Dot painting makes you forget everything around you. Out of your mind and into your heart.

Sounds great.....Don't you agree 😊

That is why Natashja created the Dotpoint Academy

She sees the pleasure it brings to people to find their inner peace in this hectic world. The need for inner peace and self-fulfillment is large in Belgium and the Netherlands.

Unity consciousness seems to grow and people like to join each other to create in freedom. It's a form of Art Therapy, and people find it to be very relaxing. It taps into their creative ability that is present in every one of us.

The new trend is to fight burnout by dot painting. With the hypnotizing paint-drop patterns made on stones, canvas, and wood. Drawing for adults was a trend already and now dot painting has been added to that trend. It seems as if the increase of stress and burnout has also had its effect on creative workshops. Creativity to find peace and quiet in your head and focus on yourself.

Natashja started dot painting herself to take the mind of her own illness. She conquered breast cancer and needed something to make her relax during this process of recovery. This dotting had such a big impact on her health that she started her website https://www.natashja.nl/. This became such a success that she decided to lead others so that they would be able to lead their own workshops. And that is how her www.dotpaint-academy.nl came to be.

But let me show you some of those pieces of Art that Natashja created πŸ˜ƒ














They look really cool..... don't you agree? If you are thinking.....I want to be able to do that too.....you can find a lot of workshops on her website too πŸ˜ƒ

Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great weekend

Blogger Influencer Brand Collaborations Europe

Hi There.....Are you a brand or blogger, influencer from Europe?

Yes.....then there is something I would like to share with you πŸ˜ƒ

I just made a new Facebook group Brand Bloggers Influencers Connect Europe



I felt that we Europeans needed a separate group and instead of waiting for someone to come up with the idea, I thought let's just make one.

The intention of the group is to connect small Brands and maybe later on larger Brands with Bloggers or Influencers.

Brands will be able to make a post in the group in which they reach out to Bloggers or Influencers to promote their product.

Newbie Bloggers or Influencers that are looking to give free blog posts in order to grow their audience are welcome to post in the group as well.

Good idea?.....Or not?..... What do you think?  😯

Since I just started this group yesterday I would love for you all to join. The bigger the group gets the more opportunities it will bring.

I am also open to all kinds of suggestions on improving this group πŸ˜„

So let's get this show on the road and start joining.

Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great day

Seadbeady's Finds on Etsy - 5

Hi There.....Are you also having a sunny day?

Don't you just love these kinds of days? Would you like to get a bit of inspiration to freshen up your wardrobe?


I am in for that πŸ˜„


How about a little bit of history I found on Wikipedia on that first?

We all know that clothing is something only humans do and it has been a feature in most human societies for a very long time. But it is actually not known just when people started to wear clothes. 

Things like textiles appeared for the first time in the Middle East during the late stone age. 

You might think now.....Oops, stone ago how long ago was that?

That is what I thought.....History was never my forte 😏 

Seems like it started about 2.5 million years ago and ended in 2500 BC.

From these times on to the present day the methods of textile production have continually evolved, and depending on their surroundings the choices of textiles that were available influenced how people clothed themselves. 

But let's get back to your wardrobe needs πŸ˜ƒ

Here are some things I found on Etsy for you, and all for 50 € or less

Pink Wallet from KoopjesAap

Hi There.....Are you a fan of soft pink πŸ˜ƒ

I actually wasn't for a long time. I'm not sure what made me change my opinion, but I am now.

Most recently I received this pink wallet from Koopjesaap in exchange for my honest review.

Pretty.....don't you think so πŸ˜„ I instantly loved it. To my opinion, it is very stylish as they say. And the fabric is soft, which makes it nice to handle. It is ideal to put some money and some cards in it. Here is a picture I took from the inside of the wallet. 
You have the zipper bag for your small change and you can put your id card in the small window. It is not that big so you can easily put it in your handbag. 

You can get this wallet in 7 different colors.....Bleu, Brown, Grey, Green, Red, Purple and Pink off course 😊

KoopjesAap has a lot of great deals on their website. They even offer discounts sometimes up to 90%. They have a large range of products to offer. But let me show you some of them out of the Jewelry and Accessories section.

Handbag - Women's Purse - Shoulder Bag - Leather - Vintage



Men's Wallet - Cardholder - Card's Wallet - Cards and Money



Small Handbag - Women - With Decorations




Handbag Women - Bags - Stylish and Business

Seadbeady's finds on Etsy - 4

Hi There.....How is the weather over there?

Are you getting ready for spring? Maybe you still need a great Spring Dress?

Actually, since I lost so much weight (41 kilos) I can't wait to buy myself a new dress. Haven't worn any dresses for ages it seems πŸ˜„

Did you know that dresses in many cultures were worn by men more often than women πŸ˜€

Like for instance, the Scottish kilt and the Greek toga were part of menswear. Later on, when women started to wear more appropriated dresses, men stopped wearing them.

In Belgium, we even have a special term for that first warm day in spring when a lot of women wear a skirt for the first time in the year with bare legs. We call it 'Rokjesdag', you could translate that as 'Skirtsday'.

Since I am such a big fan of Etsy, I thought I'd show you some dresses you can find there πŸ˜ƒ

Light Blue Linen Dress, Casual Dress, Linen Dress For Women



Handpainted sporty elegant dress, sweatshirt dress, squirrel painting



Dress PUDRA/Elegant dress/Spring-summer collection



NEW Beige Elegant Long Spring dress, Turtleneck Maxi Dress



Japanese Tunic Dress / Paradox / Spring Tunic / Cotton Tunic



Green and cream dress, stylish semi-formal dress



Military Green Dress/Women's Dresses/Spring Dress/Cotton Dress



Short dress in linen or cotton beige Womens spring dress



Casual Long Sleeved Hoodie T-shirt Blouse for Autumn and Spring



Lauren jersey purple dress with cotton bottom



Gorgeous.....Aren't they? And did I inspire you to go and take a look at those shops?

Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great weekend
