Things a Sh*tty Web Designer will and wont tell you.

Having a website is extremely vital to your business, I'd say it's the most important thing these days actually. Finding a quality designer can be pretty tough especially if you're new and totally unfamiliar with the process of getting a website made. Domain names, hosting, turn around time and the cost to build the actual site can be super overwhelming for a beginner. You're likely to run into plenty of freelancers who have no business sense, very poor customer service skills and sometimes their design skill level & knowledge may even be questionable. Here I will tell you some red flags to look out for when hiring a designer to work on your project.

 

1. You should purchase your domain name and hosting from godaddy.

Now godaddy isn't terrible but it isn't as good or as cheap as other places. It's just pretty recognizable to the average person because they're honestly the only hosting company to advertise on tv. I'm leery of any designer who recommends them because it may mean they don't have much experience with anything outside of it. Godaddy's 99cent (without coupon $2.99) domain names sound amazing until you realize they're not actually 99cents ($2.99) after the first year they are $9.99 and then you have to pay an entire $7.99 extra to keep your personal information private. What do I mean by personal information? I'm talking your full name, address, email and the telephone number you used when filling out the information to purchases your domain name.

The best Holo Nail Polish by Color Club

So I work with my hands pretty much everyday and for the most part I just keep my nails painted clear to avoid walking around with tacky chipped polish. I rarely paint them anymore but when I saw the color "Miss Bliss" (pink holo) by Color Club I just had to have it. The nail polish is what's called a "holographic" polish, basically the glitters reflect multiple colors when hit with light. It looks like a metallic pink when you're in indoor lighting but the moment you step outside it looks like your fingers have been painted with unicorn shit and who doesn't like unicorns? Also it makes me want to go outside just so I can stare at my own hands and these days I need more reasons to get out and get me some Vitamin D.

Space wear: Bubble Jackets Made by Odessa

Scored a really nice color shifting fabric from a client ended up making a jacket & it came out so much better than I thought it would! It's my first time making a puff jacket & it's giving me that 90's puff daddy, shiny man suit vibe. I'm looking for more of the fabric but so far have had zero luck finding the exact fabric. It's not foiled dot spandex, its a solid foil and a really good quality. I do however think the foil will wear off after some wear, so this is more of a special occasions jacket than it would be an everyday one. As soon as I find more of this I might do a small run of coats I've gotten a lot of request since posting it on my IG story.
