Brand Boosters

  • Good Things

me that other day that “You haven’t done a “Good Things” post is SO LONG”. Well, apparently Michael likes those posts… or maybe he just likes consistency (which is KEY to blogging well). Either way, I’m thankful for his input and I decided to blog about some “Good things” that have become great BRAND BOOSTERS!  When I say “Brand Boosters”… I’m talking about things that people notice and say “Ohh that’s cool, is that your logo!?” or  “How did you find that in your shade of TEAL?!”.  Did you know I have my own shade of TEAL? Everyone talks about TEAL like I own that color…. and I would like to think that I do.

It’s been my favorite color since my freshman year of college and I’m very dedicated to it! My whole BRAND is dedicated to it! So here are some examples of teal brand boosters… The best example would be my iphone case. I ordered this custom case from a few months ago and I have been so happy with it! And people LOVE it! I really didn’t expect for it to be such a hit but evidently it’s really cool to have your own logo on your phone case! Who knew?! It’s great! It starts conversation AND makes you look totally profesh. (Can’t believe I just used that abbreviation). So that definitely deserves to make it into a “Good Things” post!

The second item is a custom stamp!  I ordered this stamp through and it’s so much fun to use! It’s one of those “business expenses” that was totally unnecessary but I love it! It’s quite fun to stamp everything I see with a metallic silver “K” logo!

Last but not least, this may be my favorite of them all, we found TEAL LEASHES!!! I’m tempted to buy our new puppy an embroidered sweater with my logo and call him my MASCOT!!! Trust me, he’s THAT cute! We can’t wait to get him! (Can you tell I’m excited?! I talk about him every time I BLOG!) So happy Tuesday and enjoy this chilly day Virginians, it finally feels like winter around here!!:)

    I mis-read the post advert on Facebook and thought it said “teal lashes,” and I was concerned you’d taken to wearing turquoise falsies. All of that aside, I love the custom stamp! I have one for my logo and I LOVE that thing. I stamp it e’rewhere.

    Love the iphone case! Maybe when I join the “IN CROWD” I will have to order a custom one with my logo. I love the leashes too! Thanks for sharing….

    I thought this said lashes too! But I read it about 4 times and still thought it said lashes and couldn’t figure out what that had to do with the puppy? Oh, yes, LEASH that makes sense. And I still don’t know what kind of puppy you are getting!

    Jasmine was the mascot for my kickball team in Baton Rouge. She would come to our games and hang in the dug out. We were the Pirates of the Cari-balling. She still has her black tank with a skull that is wearing a pink bow:) It is a little snug so she doesnt really wear it much. In short, I fully support having a puppy mascot!

    Love all of it! Word to the wise – the retractable leash is great in the winter when you don’t want to follow your puppy deep into the snow for him to go potty. Not so great for training purposes unless you always keep it short. Can’t wait to see pictures!!!

    You are my hero! I have been trying to figure out a) where to make/buy a custom iPhone case and b) where to have a custom stamp made. Mystery solved. I heart you!

    I got a custom case done through (casemate brand) and love it! My phone is secure and cute! Now it looks like I need a cool stamp as well! ;-)

    ! Such cute little branding details! I love how your branding lives and breathes out of who you are! mad kudos!

    Have you had any problems with the design peeling off on your phone case? Mine just started a couple of weeks ago, and it’s only 7 months old. :-(
