Faux Sheepskin Rug

This elevates every blog post & photo. It's chic, simple, & acts as a palette cleanser. Sometimes I put it out when guests come over because I'm cool like that. It helps that it's incredibly soft. Choose from multiple sizes to fit your blogging/room/dimensional needs. If you're wondering how to be a blogger & influencer, this prop is a good place to start.

Faux Marble Contact Paper

This beautiful wine, marble, & succulent set up is A LIE!!! I taped this white & grey glossy faux marble contact paper onto a poster board & it works wonders. Spill something on it? Simply wipe it away with a sponge. Gets too dingy? Replace the used contact paper. I've had the same sheet for over a year & haven't needed to swap it out. The roll is worth it!

Gel Pens

Flashback to the 90s, right? Okay, hear me out here. This gel pen pack comes with 48 pens to suit any rainbow your heart desires. Pick & choose colors to go with your theme or Instagram feed. Style the pens with stationery for any blog-related photography. Personally, I write with gel pens too since the colors keep me organized.

Wall Tapestry

These plant wall tapestries are enormous & beautiful. I pinned mine up & I use them all the time. Stand in front of them for a selfie. Hold your coffee up for a cool background. The options are as limitless as your imagination. Plus, I get compliments on them all the time. I got the banana leaf wall tapestry & the cactus wall tapestry.

  3. Loving the creativity of this post Carmen! Last year I got really into flatlays and tried with different backdrops to produce different colours etc. This year I kinda left that by the wayside, so it's interesting to read all your different ideas ( :

    Have a lovely week hon, Xo

  4. Thanks so much! Sometimes I have to photograph products for clients so this is a great way to spice things up without using the same thing over & over. :]

  5. The wall tapestry turned out to be SUCH a great deal. It's affordable, HUGE, good quality, & I initially purchased it to jazz up the room, but it's great for photos too! :]

  6. Thanks Briana! Happy blogging. What are your goals for 2019? :]

  7. OK - I love that banana leaf wall tapestry. Checking it out now!
