3 reason why Name Cards beat smartphone

 
When I received my first event invitation to attend as blogger, I learn how important for bloggers to carry own name card. I remember my first event , one PR hand me her name card and I was so embarrassed for not being able to hand out mine in return. She did asked for it and I was shyly replied I don't have one. Lesson learn! 

I carried my business card for second event. I then asked one bloggers who was sitting beside me for her blog url while handing out my new name card. She then shyly replied she need a pen and paper for her to write her url. Hope she learn her own lesson like me too. Then I realize this is how I look like during my first event. I look so sloppy and not ready to represent my blog. 

Some people may commented , we are just bunch of bloggers and most of us just start a blog for fun during pass times as hobbies. To be honest, I did started out for rant space and over the years its shows some small coffee money out of it. Not bad! Some people commented why need name cards when smartphone is enough when you attend event. Well....whether you are at networking event or product launching event, if you meet your fellow blogger or PR, nothing beats the power of name card.

Here are 3 reasons why business cards beat smartphone :

1.  People still ask for name card

Do you ever encounter the same experience like mine? People always asked for it when you don't carry one? 
Have you ever see their face expression when you replied , you don't carry any and ask for theirs instead? You will end up spoil your chances to connect with other parties.

2. Branding

With name card , you can show you are professional and means business. You even have your own logo, contact details, blog url, sns name which make it easier for potential advertiser to contact your for future collaboration.

3. Convenient for Potential readers

Too many blogs out there. Let say you meet someone and they have interest on your blog. Example your blog call 'superbrokelady'. It sounds awkward to say it in event, though! Well your blog name may sounds stands out but let say people need to google out that phrase and there are too many results from google and they may end up refer to the wrong site. They may probably give up and move on with other!
Further more, I don't think most of the people you met will find you are important enough and remember all your details. You don't expect people to memorise your blog name, instagram and fb name , right? I bet that potential readers or people you met, may forgot all about it within few minutes.

Getting a business card now as easy as 4 simple steps via online business card printing. I ordered my business cards online at gogoprint.com.my. The process are simple and delivery is super fast too.


I chose MY Gogoprint Sdn. Bhd. , a leading online printing marketing and technology firm offers free delivery service all over Malaysia.

3. Then select paper type - most popular type is 310g art card. You can also choose other option which is 260g art card.

4. Finally , choose your desired finishing. They have few options here and the most popular is NONE mean normal edges. Other options available are Rounded Corners, Lamination Matter, Lamination Glossy and Lamination Matte with Rounded Corners.

Tips to minimize pores on the face

Enlarged pores on the face are not appealing at all! 
This phenomenon on the face cause by dirt, dead skin cells and oil residue which residue build up onto your skin overtimes and provide pressure to it clogging pores forcing them to stretch out. Sounds like ugly procedure ?
That is why we need to clean and moisturize face in regular basis without fail.

Let me know if you have other tips other than listed here.

Here are some tips to minimize pores on the face :

1. Exfoliate
I include exfoliate on alternate day to make sure my face pores free from dirt. It also helps to remove irrelevant dry skin too.

2. Cleansing
Never fail to cleanse your face thoroughly on daily basis. Avoid regular soap to wash your face. At least use the ph-balanced purifier face cleansing product.

3. Sunscreen
I will not walk out from my house without any sunscreen protection. Exposure to UV variation is super harmful for your skin and slow down the cell reproduction on the skin.

4. Serum
Best to add in serum to your skin regime to replenish the overtime losses nutrition to your skin.

5. Steam
I failed to do this but did it occasionally when I visited beauty center for facial. You can do this at home by using one hot water basin with rose petals in it and cover your face with clean towel. It helps to make your pores smaller.

There are many skincare in the market targeted pores in particular. One of them is Naruko. A popular brand from Taiwan. 



I was given Job's Tears skincare line which focusing to minimize the pores and brightening skin tone. This is exactly what I needs!
Most of Naruko products line made of natural ingredients and this Job's Tears skincare line in particular smells like you are applying honey from flowers onto your face. So sweet smells. Love it!

Naruko skincare  line pledged as free of parabens, mineral oil, artificial preservatives, artificial coloring or pigmentation,fragrance, silicone and talc. Thumbs up...Naruko is cruelty free which means its not tested on poor animal.

I currently using 3 items for my night skincare regime to achieve close to flawless skin.
