HI guys! My name is Amanda Miller, and I am the creator of The Miller Affect. I am so excited to be guest blogging today. I have always adored The Double Take girls and am so excited that I finally got to meet them in New York for Fashion Week. (And yes, they are as sweet and genuine in person as they appear to be on here)! I know Lindsay and Whitney cover fashion and sales like no one’s business, so I won’t even try to do that on here. I wanted to talk today about all the tips I give on my blog!

I recently got to go to New York for New York Fashion Week. I haven’t even been blogging for a year so it was so amazing that I got to attend. The truth is, anyone can go! I cover all the tips you need to know to get there on my New York Fashion Week Tips post. Head there now to read up, and you will find that no matter how new you are, YOU can go to New York next year!

I am sure the Girls have been keeping you up to date with their Like to Know It posts, but I have found that even my closest friends are still confused about it. How does it really work, is it worth the time to sign up, and what if you don’t want to get overrun by emails? These are all questions I have been asked NUMEROUS times! Like to Know It is COMPLETELY worth it, and will save you tons of time AND money. You can find out how on my ‘Like to Know It – What Is In It For You‘ post!

How to make a collage on Canva-1

I have tons of new bloggers visit my site every day because I like to share useful tips they can use for their blog. I was new once, heck I still kind of am, and I depended on these tips to get me where I am today. You will find by reading my blog that I believe in community. If we try to compete, we really won’t get anywhere! Some of the tutorials I have posted so far include ‘How to Make a Collage on Canva‘ and ‘How to Make an Overlay on PicMonkey‘. Both are super important when it comes to collages and having pin-able images on your site! I walk you through how to do each of these step by step and they only take about 10 minutes each! I have many more tutorials lined up, so stay tuned!

Big Sky Montana

Do you need travel tips? I cover those as well. I just started, so I only have a few places covered. But, you can find all you need to know about each destination! My favorite so far has been Big Sky Montana! I will have New Orleans up next month and you won’t want to miss that one! Not only will I be covering the city, but I will be teaching you how to plan a destination wedding, yay! (No, sadly it wasn’t my wedding I am planning)… but soon enough! 😉

Dress// Clutch// Sunglasses- Karen Walker from Endless Eyewear

Lastly, I cover some subscription services I love. My favorite and the most popular with my readers has been DITTO’s Endless Eyewear program. Basically, for $24 a month you get endless pairs of designer sunglasses sent to your door. You just choose a pair and it is shipped to you immediately. You try it out for a day (or a month) and then you just go online and pick out your next pair. The next pair comes with a pre-paid return label that you ship your last pair back with! How easy is that?? So if there are some Prada’s you have had your eye on, you can pay $25 and wear them to an event for a weekend OR wear them for a few months! Whatever you wish! Scratches are included in the price. They understand wear and tear. The only thing they will not cover is if you break the sunglasses so bad that they cannot be fixed. BEST NEWS? You can try it out FOR FREE (yes, for free) for an entire month with the code THEMILLERAFFECT. If you decide at the end of the month that it isn’t worth it, then just cancel. I promise you won’t though! It is amazing (especially for bloggers) because you can have a new designer pair to post with each week! You can see all my fav subscriptions services at my ‘Top 5 Subscription Services‘ post.

I hope you enjoyed my takeover! I would love to see you over on the blog! If you stop by, please leave a comment to let me know you were there! If there is something you would like to learn please just let me know! <3 Have a beautiful weekend!
