Hello! I manage the Perlu influencer community, helping every one of you to grow your brand and network with other influencers. I am here to answer any and all questions you have about the Perlu platform, so feel free to send me a message!

What makes me different?

I'm an influencer myself! I run my own blog and social media accounts, focused on travel. I look forward to connecting with you. Connect with my blog on Perlu.

With a Masters degree in English, one of my best strengths is writing and editing articles for my blog. After living abroad in Australia for 16 months, I developed a desire to see the world and write about it!


My blog is focused on giving people tips and tricks to save money and get the most out of their traveling experiences. You'll notice that I focus a lot on food, animals, craft beer, and budget tips. Located in Central New York State, I often feature events and places in New York from a local's perspective.

Happy #smallbrewerysunday! What better way to celebrate than with one of the commemorative @nyscraftbeer #NYSPintDays glasses?! I’m LOVING the design of these glasses, so of course the hubby and I each got one from @fullboarcraft. Mine is filled with the @corsoscookies vanilla bean blonde ale. Yum! Today is the last day to grab your pint (unless your brewery has some extra!) @i_can_clarify did you get yours?! PS don’t forget that Full Boar participates in the @eatlocalnystate card, so you save $5 every time you spend over $25 there! . . #brewery #newyorkbeer #nybeer #thinknydrinkny #syracuse #visitsyracuse #visitcny #imacraftbeerbabe #craftbeerbabe #newyorkstate #iloveny #tasteny #proudtobeftb #newyorkonly #newyorkblogger #nyblogger #travelblogger #instabeer #craftbeer #craftbrewery #craftbeergirls #beergirl #drinkup #drinkmorebeer #ilovenewyork #eatlocalnystate #drinklocal #beerselfie

Spotlight: Female Musicians Who Are Influencers

Brands like ASOS and NA-KD have made a showing on Peyton’s Instagram, and we can’t wait to see what’s next! There’s no question that this pop-star is going places; she has reached number fifteen on the Billboard Charts, appeared on the Dr. Oz Show, and has had a viral video that reached ten million hits! While being a mom to a four-year-old boy, Jessica still makes time to work with brands like NYX Cosmetics and JCPenney. With singles that have reached over 300,000 streams on Spotify and national anthem performances for both the Mets and the Phillies, this powerful performer continues to own the stage.

Hungry? These Breweries & Restaurants in Elmira Are Waiting For You

From the cozy vibe and friendly staff to the delicious food and beautiful deck with a view, what’s not to love? They were surprised to find that there weren’t many places outside of the breweries and wineries themselves featuring the local craft drinks. If you’re looking for a cozy spot with unbelievably delicious, fresh, and flavorful meals, this is your spot. You know that I can’t spend a weekend in a new place without visiting the local breweries.

The Key to Collaborating with Content Creators

Perlu has been a great business tool – not only for working with various brands, but also for collaborating with other content creators. Different niche packs are set up to make it easy to find specific groups of content creators that you either want to work with or target for a collaboration. One of the best aspects of connecting with brands and working on campaigns is that much of the information on the brands and other influencers is directly on the platform. There is a range of creators and brands on the platform, and once you get the hang of both creating and searching for specific Collabs, it can be a huge business tool.

Perlu's 2020 Stats in a Nutshell

Dozens of professionals came together to discuss how to navigate through the challenges that have arisen in the marketing landscape this year and how brands and influencers can work together to overcome these difficulties. We collaborated on some amazing campaigns Perlu pulled together a Pack of over 40 gluten-free influencers for Schar to promote their new hot dog rolls, hamburger buns, and other gluten-free products. The most successful partners were re-engaged to share Instagram stories promoting Schar’s new sampling box. The second phase was the Classic Laddie Challenge, where 17 partners published content across several social platforms, reaching an audience of 1.3 million followers.

Happy Thanksgiving! With everything going on this year, I’m devoting today to being grateful for what I do have. My health, my family, my friends, a stable job, a roof over my head... But I’d be remiss if I didn’t say that this year has been a struggle. With the losses we’ve faced, particularly losing a family member to suicide, I’ve faced some of the most difficult times of my depression. It’s more important than ever to check in on your friends and family and ask them “Are you okay?” Just don’t forget about checking in on yourself too. So I’m taking a break from my normal travel content and sharing something that has helped me and my mental health lately. I was gifted this Daily Healing Journal from Christina at @beginwithintoday. The journal was designed to help those with chronic or mental illness by documenting their daily challenges and triumphs. It really has made me think about how I’ve been spending my days - eating, sleeping, self care... I’m so grateful to Christina for designing something that was very much needed for people like me. It helps put life in perspective. The journal is available with two different designs, and multiple bindings. The best part? Use code “CYBERLOVE” for 20% off through the end of the month. Perfect for a gift for yourself and your friend who could use some support this year. . . #beginwithintoday #selfcare #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #beginwithin #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #areyouokay #ruok #loveyourself #selfrespect #selfreflection #dailyjournal #journaling #begrateful #begratefuleveryday #gratitude #gratitudechallenge #gratitudejournal #believeinyourself #syracuse #socialdistancing #thanksgiving2020
