New Year, New Look, New Curve, New You

Hey, beautiful people! Thank you for making 2018 an outstanding year in our growth, reach, and fun 🙂 You are our family and we love each and every one of you. Together, all of us, along with you, will make 2019 a groundbreaking year in every way. We have upped our visual appearance here and on our social media pages, and will have better ways for you to engage us and vice verse. And of course, the connection between us and you would not be complete without getting one of the many apparel and other items we are offering here!

Your total well being is important to us, and we got many questions throughout 2018 related to health, fitness and beauty. So beginning with this fitness season, we will increase the number of articles and videos to help you. And if you have a company or offer a service along these lines, get in touch with us asap to get involved! If you have an article written in a journalistic fashion (not sounding too much like an ad), we’ll post it free, subject to scheduling/timing of course. And don’t forget to help us help you by buying something from us or signing up for one of our Patreon levels. Or you can buy advertising from us, too (run through our sponsor, 50Plano.com).

And to kick off the new year in a good way, here’s some helpful advice: Only put people in your life who can help you grow with them! Considers flowers you plant in a garden. If you plant 10 flowers but only one of them grows, your garden is useless. So you get rid of the plants that didn’t grow and replace them with those that do grow. Once you have 10 beautifully growing flowers, your entire garden is a success. The same is true for those you plant in your life. Make 2019 the year you plant only beautiful, growing flowers in your life to help you succeed. Let’s do this!

Taking the Perfect Selfie Requires the Right Tools and Setting

A little over 3 years ago, we at CurveMonsters posted a set of guidelines for taking the best selfies for us to consider posting on our popular Instagram page. The response was overwhelming, and 3 years later, the advice we gave is still relevant and needed. If you haven’t checked it out, please feel free to do so.

This brief blog post simply highlights two other best practices for taking the best selfies to increase your chances of getting a repost on our social media pages. Using any tool to stabilize your pictures and getting them at the perfect camera angle is a must. And that is even more urgent for videos, where shaky hands can often blue parts of the video and leave them with unimpressive angles. The videos we include for our very effective “Lifestyles of CurveMonsters” promo campaign are stable, even and have impressive angles.

iPhone 8 Camera Mounting Case

We recommend using a tripod or anti-gravity suction phone case like the one available on this site (pictured above). If you already have one, great. The idea is to mount your phone so that videos are as stable as possible.

Something else even more important than mounting your phone camera is lighting. We cannot stress this enough. Poor lighting is the enemy of the perfect selfie. One way to help increase lighting for selfies is to use a vanity mirror (pictured below) in conjunction with the overall lighting in the area you’re in.
