Must Have: September 2014

Back in the early days (2013) of Simply Sinova, my 'Must Have' lists were a popular biweekly series!  Lists ranged anywhere from Must Have Bags to Must Have Beauty Products. Then, after months (three to be exact) of neglect, I finally revived this series with my Summer Must Have list back in June. Now another three months have gone by (seriously time is FLYING by) and my 'Must Have' lists are BACK! I've decided to turn this into a monthly series (i.e September Must Haves, October Must Haves, etc.) Each month I'll list my most coveted items in hopes that you, my lovely readers, will share your must haves with me! Onto September's Must Haves:

Discovering Chicago with Curb

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Curb. I received a promotional code to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”
One of my favorite things about living in Chicago is how easy it is to get around (last week we were voted the #2 most bike friendly city in America!) Our excellent transit system and abundance of cabs makes not having a car not a big issue. Last week was pretty hectic travel wise. I had to travel back and forth all week downtown for work, for a couple of blogging assignments and it was my best friends birthday. You'd think not having a car would slow me down but luckily I have something better than a car! I have Curb! Curb is an amazing app that is changing the way people get around by connecting them to safe, reliable rides from professional taxi and other for-hire
drivers in cities nationwide.

Blogging Tips 01: The Benefits of a Blog Newsletter

I've been blogging regularly for about 16 months now, so clearly I'm NO expert! Even though I've only been blogging for a short amount of time, I've been an avid blog reader for as long as I can remember (anyone remember LiveJournal?) Let's face it, blogging is HARD! Even the most popular blogs weren't build in a day (or a month or even a YEAR!) When I first started blogging I had absolutely no guidance. Luckily, this past year I've met some incredible bloggers and joined some amazing blogging communities that have really helped me and my blog grow.  In this new Simply Sinova series, I'm going to focus on sharing the tips I've learned and my own personal advice for growing your blog. Today's tip: The Benefits of a Blog Newsletter!
