THE SOUK ( DOWNTOWN MANHATTAN BEACH ,CA USA)

Hey guys!  I decided to do a series about my favorite local shops and show you all where my favorite places to shop, eat and hang out are!

Todays favorite local place is called “The Souk” in Manhattan beach , Ca . I personally know the owner and she is the best! She’s such an inspiring woman, and she actually has her own blog !

Lenoras Blog!

The Souk features beautiful hand-made products for you and your home ranging from ceramics, rugs and blankets to children’s clothes and unique accessories. Walk into “The Souk” and be transported to a far away land full of beautiful hand-made gems!

The souk is actually all handmade products from North Africa. These products are all handmade by women and are super boho as well as tribal.

1.BE YOURSELF

When I say to “be yourself” I mean don’t be someone your not, I know you can portray anyone you want. But is that really you? I enjoy being true to myself on my blog and youtube channel. I am me and well.. theres nobody else like me! so be YOU! That is who everyone

2. WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT GIVE UP

None of these will happen overnight, and your patience might run out just a tiny bit! So make sure to never give up. If this is what you love, then do it. For me, this is a hobby and I love doing it!

3. ACCEPT THE HATE YOU MIGHT RECEIVE

Some internet trolls might just try to bring you down. Truist me, I thought about this before I started a youtube channel and it drove me insane. But you know what? I finally just did it and dealt with it anyway. You’re not here for them , you create content for your readers and because you love to do it! Don’t forget that!

4.BE GENUINE

Like #1 said be  yourself, well being genuine is only adding to being yourself but it’s still very important. Be creative with whatever content you are creating! Don’t forget to try new things!

5. NETWORK YOUR BUTT OFF

Network, network, network. I can’t emphasize that enough. I personally love to collab, especially if we have the same style or even theme. Always be open to collaborations and  don’t ever be afraid to ask anyone. A super quick little secret,we all started the same way.

6. PICK A THEME & STICK TO IT

I chose Lifestyle because I can do various things with that theme. But some of you might have better beauty advice or fashion tips. Hey! share it with the world!

7. INTERACT WITH YOUR READERS

No one built a following by staying quiet. Trust me, your readers want you to comment back . I honestly love interacting with my followers and readers it’s one of the many perks that comes with being a blogger and youtuber, so take advantage of it!

8. CONSISTENCY IS KEY

Be consistent and if you can’t schedule everything out and dedicate one day to however many blog posts you have that week or month . But keep being consistent , if you don’t everything will fall and no one will really keep up[ with your stuff.

9. INVEST IN A CAMERA OR FIND ONE

If you’re a blogger or youtuber or you want to grow your instagram following , a camera will help you so much more! I personally use my  Canon eos T6i which helps me so much more especially to film. Make sure you purchase a good camera and practice.

10. BE PATIENT

Okay yeah, I know there’s a bunch of people who blew up overnight and hey, that might be you! But if it isn’t, make sure to be patient don’t double check your analytics. Give it time, and be consistent.

I hope you guys found all of these super helpful! Until next time !
