I've been on this app for two months and I'm starting to understand the style, algorithm, and trends. I'm excited to share some tips on how you can get the most engagement and fun out of TikTok!

As always,  everything is/was based on my personal experience and personal "research". This may or may not work for everybody but it's worth a shot, right?

Understand the Algorithm

I watched many videos on how to crack the TikTok algorithm. Unfortunately, I fell into the "0 view" category a handful of times and I wanted to know why it was so hard to get views on this app. If you thought Instagram's algorithm was frustrating, you haven't tried Tik Tok yet.

10 Valuable Lessons I Learned in Customer Service

My first few jobs out of college was in customer service. It was a neutral and (somewhat) of a humbling experience. Customer service is definitely one of the most difficult jobs out there. I believe that everybody should dive into this industry at least once in their life.

It's safe to say that I've had my fair share of "mess ups" and questionable moments with customers 😅. So, let's dive into the 10 most valuable lessons I learned in customer service. Hopefully, you can learn from my mistakes 👍. A friendly reminder that everybody's experience will be different!



Never Blame the Customer(s)

We've all had this issue before where a customer clearly made a mistake but they somehow tossed it back on us. I learned to never argue or debate with a customer because they're "always right." If it's not a huge deal, just "take the blame" or find a fast solution before things get heated.

Be Kind 

A customer can't be upset at you if you&…

[Secret Series]: The Secret to Healthy and Clear Skin is...

When I was a teenager and a college student, I never had massive issues with acne. Of course, I had my fair share of hormonal and stress acne but nothing too extreme that required me to use certain acne products.


I felt inspired to write this blog post because my skin suffers the most during winter time. Since we're technically still in winter, I thought it would be a good idea for me to share some skincare tips and advices.

Drink Water 

My most obvious tip is to drink water every day. That's truly one of the most natural and easiest ways to maintain healthy skin! You'll be surprise to see how much your skin can change if you cut off soda, sugary drinks, and/or dairy products 😉.
