Blog Love: The best of blogging and business every week

Photo-Feb-28,-11-23-28-AM

This week was almost entirely dedicated to late night rehearsals and performing in my first show here in SD! I got a spray tan for the first time and it made me feel like a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills. I’ve been taking it easy during the day, so I’m excited to get back on a more intense training schedule next week. Also really excited to eat a cheeseburger after our last show tonight. Performing in such a sexy show means I’ve been eating super healthy all week. Over it!

How to use font glyphs + a recent design

How to use font glyphs to improve your logo design (a quick tip for Photoshop) from XOSarah.com

While working on a client project recently I was going through the different glyphs included with the font to make the blog title flow smoothly.
