Entrepreneurship 

Popular Instagram account @Cereal.Entrepreneur profiles entrepreneurs and just this week, they asked me for my thoughts. I wanted to share that here with you. It all began in the spring of 2015. After running the social media at Aéropostale for a few years, I realized that the structure of corporate America is not right for me. I’m a very creative person involved in a few different industries, so it was difficult for me to be working at a desk nine hours a day. I was missing out on other opportunities that meant just as much to me, and began feeling creatively stifled dealing with the usual infrastructure of a corporate environment. I decided to leave the corporate world and open DiDario Consulting Inc., a social media, marketing and branding company. I work with a range of clients in the fashion, restaurant, beauty and beverage industries doing everything and anything to build their brand. Some examples of what I do for my clients: photo and video shoots, running their social media channels, securing mentions in magazines, …

Elevate Your Exercise Gear 

This post was sponsored by Zappos. As an exercise fanatic, I am always on the hunt for comfortable workout gear that allows me to have the best training sessions possible. I teamed up with Zappos.com to try out the latest Brooks collection, and it does not disappoint! When it comes to gym shorts, I often find many on the market are too wide, long or baggy. I like to wear active clothes that not only feel good, but also look good. Who says you can’t be stylish when going to the gym?

But what I like about the Brooks Fremont shirt is that it has underarm paneling that allows for more freedom of movement. You don’t feel like the shirt is …

Swimwear Season

The swimwear season is quickly approaching and, while it’s easy to fall into the pattern of wearing the same bathing suits year after year, I challenge you to upgrade them. Below are my four tips for choosing the right swimwear that will keep you looking current, trendy and well-styled for all of your warm weather escapes:1. Above The Knee Is In It is time to look at swimwear in a completely different way. Toss aside your below the knee bathing suits and choose trunks that rests slightly above the knees, or even a little shorter if you’re feeling more adventurous. Long swimsuits often look sloppy, doing nothing to accentuate your silhouette and can often make you appear wider than you actually are. A shorter, fitted swimsuit gives you a cleaner look and will elevate your swimsuit game.2. Highlighter Colors Are Your Friend Nothing accentuates a nice golden tan like a pop of color. You should wear highlighter colors all spring and summer (or any season in a tropical location). There’s no better opportunity to do …
