Given the time of year (ho, ho, ho) and how busy things have become, it’s a Christmas miracle that I’m able to publish one last blog for the year! I’ve picked some of my favorite pieces of content from Q3 and Q4 to wrap up what was my best year, professionally, since leaving corporate America.
I’m sincerely grateful to the brands and the people who continue to choose to collaborate with me/H2H Social.It has been a fun ride so far. I can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store!
2018 was a great year – full of growth, opportunities, and experiences I’ll be forever grateful for. Before I make a pretty exciting announcement regarding 2019 and the future of H2H Social (and me), let’s round out this great year with some of the final [branded content] touches from Q4.
Okay, so, the goal at the start of 2018 was to post more often with less content. Aaaaaand, it’s April already. To bring these “Jolley Goods” up to speed, I’ve sifted through the first quarter of content and snagged some favorites.
Here’ what I’ve been up to so far in 2018:
An added bonus to MADE this month is that their long-awaited website is live and beautiful! I was stoked to contribute my imagery to the project, and you can see it throughout (click away)! Here are some screenshots- just click on either of them to visit the new MADE Coffee website!

I have also been creating blog content for the Audrey Lane Journal. Here are some of my favorite posts as of late. Just click on one of the images to read that particular blog!
Looking back on the last 365 days brings one word to mind: wow. Near the end of 2016 I wondered if my corporate burnout would ever go away. I was uninspired, I lacked motivation, and overall, it was just a really tough time for me creatively.
2017 is proof that if you want something bad enough, the work ethic comes naturally. I’ve worked harder than I’ve ever worked before. Throughout the hard work, my creativity began to flicker again, and it feels like I’ve finally got my groove back.
During 2017 my company, H2H Social, tripled in size, I returned to coaching club soccer, and I got insanely lucky with new friendships.
So, here are some of the content highlights from September through the end of 2017. To my new friends, old ones, clients, and family – I’m lucky to know you and to be a part of your tribe. Thank you. I look forward to seeing what we come up with in 2018 🙂
Anywho, HI! Today I’m sharing some of my work from August on the blog; from hair how-to’s and product promos, to a stormy michelada recipe (because, Florida). To see what else I’m working on, connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram: @iAmRachelJolley
And, the projects keep on rollin’! Take a look at some of the most recent clips I’ve created:
A few months back, I got involved with “Best of the Bay” Instagram nominee, DTSPeats. They started on Instagram, but just created a Facebook page to reach more people. So, I created a Facebook Video Ad, which yielded almost 100 quality followers, for less than $20; this totally proves that visuals are everything!
Working with the same brand, who wanted to grow their following, I pitched the idea to do an “At Home” segment, featuring products from local, DTSP grocers. The idea was to expand their base of advertisers from just restaurants and bars, to any type of food/drink vendor in the area. For the first one, I made pizza for a week!
Last, but not least, here’s another summer “hair how-to” for a local salon.
Summer has been great so far! I’ve had the opportunity to really dive into some new video projects. Food and drinks are some of my top muses, so that has been super fun; while my appreciation for the salon/beauty industry is growing every day! Enjoy these July projects!
Working with Tampa Bay Instagram influencer, DTSPeatsDTSPeats is always a pleasure. I mean, how can I complain about a gig that involves food, drinks, AND photography? I can’t!
We were invited to sample, review, and photography the new cocktail menu, which is inspired by the Dali Museum’s latest exhibit, Horst P. Horst. The Round the Clock and Marilyn Monroe were my two, personal favorites; they offer a refreshingly cool and fruity complement to the summer heat. You can find the full Dali-inspired cocktail list from FarmTable Kitchen.
Here are some of the captures from the experience:
