Here at Smiley360, we love our community–which is why we set aside some time each month to recognize and appreciate the members who help make our community the amazing place it is!

This month, Julz L. caught our attention, between all of her great activity within the Smiley community, to her creative sharing on her Smiley Missions. So, we’ve decided to get to know her a little better!

Here’s what we’ve learned about Julz:

How long have you been a Smiley member, and what’s your favorite thing about being a part of the Smiley360 community?

I’ve been a member since 2015.

What has been your favorite Smiley Mission ever, and why?

Definitely the Sleep Number mattress mission. I was able to go to a Sleep Number store and try out one of their beds and find my sleep number! For doing this,  I received one of the best pillows I’ve slept on to date.

What is your favorite way to share on a Mission and why? 
My favorite way to share is definitely Instagram I love sharing new products on my Instagram stories and my feed, plus I enjoy the product placement and the creative portion of taking the pictures for my Instagram!

When you try out brand products, your opinion counts not only for other consumers, but also for the brand! Why do you feel it’s important for brands to listen to their consumers?

It is so important for brands to listen to their consumers because it gives them insight to see if perhaps improvement is needed on the product and also sometimes is to be on par or above competitors.

What is your best tip for sharing quality posts when you’re on a Mission?

Lighting is key! You don’t need a fancy camera or special lights to get good product shots, honestly I think the best light is by a window. Also, keeping the picture simple and not busy is important, you want people to focus on the product not what’s around it.

What brands or products would you love to see on an upcoming Mission?

Definitely makeup brands such as Kat Von D, Too faced, Lime crime, NYX, Cover girl, I could go on and on.

We love getting to know our members better. Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

I have a weird obsession for kitchen bowls, handcrafted boxes, anything miniature and cheese!
