How to Wear Midi Rings the Right Way

Summer 2016Ayana MillerComment

Midi rings are SO cute! What's not to love? They are on trend and the Love Yanz prediction is that they are here to stay for at least a little while. So if you haven't grabbed some midi rings yet (or even if you have), here's what you should know about stacking and wearing midi rings.

Not Too Heavy

Midi rings should be light on your fingers. Many of the popular styles emphasize this. They are often thinner than standard rings and are lightweight. Most of us will still have to do daily tasks that involve using our hands, so function is key! Don't weigh your fingers down with anything that's too bulky.

Pro Tip: Check out the Love Yanz signature mid rings for styling examples.

Not Too Many

Balance is key with midi rings. One ring is fine, but multiples are even better! The trick is to spread them out across you hands and fingers. Along with taking the previous tip of not making them too heavy, you will get more mileage if you wear them at different heights.

Have Fun

Play with colors, metals, and designs. Geometric shapes are in style along with tribal patterns and themes. Don't be afraid to mix and match gold and silver and rose gold either!

Pro Tip: Check out the Love Yanz guide to wearing silver and gold for more tips on mixing and matching metals.



Monday Mantra: Getting Smart on Marketing

Summer 2016Ayana MillerComment

Whether you're still in the idea phase, just starting out in a business, or have been a businesswoman for years, you've heard at least once by now how important marketing is to your success. 

Marketing is simply a way to get your business attention and get more people to know and understand your brand and its promises. 

There are many ways to do marketing, but some are smarter than others. Here are a few ways to get smart on marketing without having to make a ton of changes to your current operations. 

1. Get Active on Social Media.

Even if you just choose one platform to focus on, become an expert on that one platform. Join an online group that is devoted to discussions around how to use that platform to grow your business. These groups are often called "masterminds" and are easily accessible. Go deep on the various tactics that you can use to market your product or service on that platform. You'd be surprised about the resources that are freely available, if you're willing to do some research. 

2. Donate Products/Services.

Is there a person on Facebook, Instagram, or Youtube that you think would be an excellent ambassador for your product? If they have a business e-mail listed on their about page, then they likely are open to collaborations! Be prepared for rejections, but also be ready to embrace the number of acceptances you receive. After some time, you may start getting requests! 

3. Focus on Quality. 

Don't sacrifice the quality of your products or services for anyone. Your brand will be tied to what you provide, so make sure it's topnotch. That is the best marketing you can gift yourself! 

Here's you mantra for the week: 

“I am not who I’m going to be. I am always becoming.”
