It’s been said, “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”.
While there’s definitely truth behind this statement, the reality is – success takes effort. Pursuing your passions, setting goals for yourself, and following your dreams helps bring you greater personal fulfillment and happiness, while enabling you to continue your journey on the road to success.
Do What You Love with HP Instant Ink
When life (and work) gets busier and places greater demands on you, it’s important to find ways that help you manage your tasks. That’s where technology (like the revolutionary HP Instant Ink program) can greatly assist you in becoming more creative and productive, while helping you get more done in less time.
As a lifestyle blogger who’s frequently working on computer projects, I’m always looking for more ways to be productive and get things done. When I was presented with the opportunity to learn first-hand how the HP Instant Ink program worked, I was excited to test it out.
“HP Instant Ink is an innovative ink replacement service designed to save consumers up to 50 percent on ink while ensuring that you #NeverRunOut of ink when you need it most.”
What is HP Instant Ink?
When your time is committed to handling several projects, the last thing you want to think about is ordering ink (or for that matter – unexpectedly running out just when you need it). That’s where the HP Instant Ink program does the thinking (and planning ahead) for you.
Connected via a wireless HP printer (like the ultra-powerful HP Envy 5660 e-All-in-One Printer), your printer alerts HP when the ink starts to run low, and HP sends you ink before you run out. In addition, the program lets you save up to 50% on ink. The best part is – the low-cost, flexible monthly plans start at $2.99 (ink, shipping, and recycling included) and can be cancelled or changed at any time.

Because I’m often doing creative projects (like photography, modeling, and product staging) on behalf of Inspirations & Celebrations, utilizing advanced technological tools and services (such as HP Instant Ink and HP Social Media Snapshots) helps me be more efficient and productive.
In between managing a global business and being a lifestyle blogger, I’m continually learning the art of balancing projects, work-load, and time management.
Since I was young, I enjoyed writing, graphic design, modeling, product staging, and photography, and felt a desire to utilize my skills in some way. In addition, I’ve always been enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge about a range of topics (including fashion, beauty, health, and lifestyle) with people. For these reasons, a lifestyle blogging career seemed like a natural fit for me, and could easily become a venture I would love.
When I launched Inspirations & Celebrations in late 2011, I knew it would require considerable time and energy, but would be well worth the effort, both personally and professionally.
Having spent months contemplating the development of Inspirations & Celebrations, my vision was to create an online destination that inspired style and celebrate life, in addition to sharing information that would help improve my readers’ quality of life.
Over the past few years, I’ve spent countless hours reading, researching, writing, and working on hundreds of projects (including sponsored campaigns from leading brands) and editorial articles.
Because I love what I do, my passion and drive have acted as the catalyst to keep me motivated to do more and create more.
How To Be More Creative & Productive
To be more creative and productive, do your best to stay motivated and on track with accomplishing goals everyday. By writing down ideas on notepads, creating to-do lists, staying organized via a calendar, and printing beautiful imagery, the use of both online and offline tools can help keep you inspired.
When being creative is your business, it means you need to always be on the lookout for sources of inspiration. Whether reading DIY tutorials, watching how-to videos, browsing magazines, or simply focusing on the world around you, inspiration can be found everywhere.
By merging the best technologies with innovation and creativity, you can be more productive and successful in your work (and personal life), while loving what you do.
