I hope everyone started 2019 off on a good note, I wanted to start off big so as you all know by now I announced my pregnancy on the 1st of January! I want to say THANK YOU because the amount of love I have been receiving is unreal!!! I am so grateful because I have made awesome connections that truly fill my heart with happiness which brings up my next topic…GIRL POWER!
I am all about having girl power and I wanted to take a moment and dive into this topic because now more than ever we spend most of our time on social media. We make friends or we feel like we know someone else because they are so relatable which is one of my favorite things about the social media world. I have met so many awesome and powerful women throughout the years and have had amazing opportunities because Instagram is a huge platform.
To me girl power is showing genuine love to someone else even through something as simple as commenting on their picture. When I use the word “genuine” I am referring to keeping it 100! If I see a picture that caught my eye, I give it a like and comment as well. If someone took the time to write a caption then I read it and comment something based on that. Why? Because it’s about creating a connection! I can spot a fake or half-ass comment from a mile away so showing some girl power comes with being genuine.
On the other hand, a lot of bloggers/influencers I follow keep their captions pretty simple, in those cases I like to hype up my girls. If they look bomb AF I let that be known, or comment something based on their outfit, the point is to show love. You can’t expect to be a influencer and only receive love because it goes both ways! If people take the time to stop by your page to show love and hype you up then make it a point to get back to everyone even if it’s a simple thank you but let them know that you acknowledged their comment.
Before 2018 ended I decided to step out of my comfort zone as I made it one of my goals for 2019 so I said why not start early so I planned a brunch and invited other influencers! I took the time to really notice what girls I was interacting with on Instagram and who was taking the time to show some real girl power and reached out to them via DM. To my surprise, almost all of the girls I reached out to were able to make it except for one or two. I put us all into a group chat, we decided on a place and time to meet and it was AMAZING! All of the girls had a good vibe and I could just feel the good energy all around us as we complimented each other, we were able to relate on so many levels and just have a good time! It’s crazy how all of that is possible with the power of social media. To this day, we all constantly show love to each other on Instagram, I’ve seen some of the girls that continue meeting up and as have I which makes me so happy!!!
I have added their Instagram handles as shown in the picture from left to right, check out their awesome pages and give them a follow!
I’ve been to plenty of blogger events where I start seeing the same group of girls and you would think that being a influencer would make you friendly but instead they are stuck up which is the total opposite of what they portray on social media. There is room for everyone out there and we’re all unique in our own special way so instead of competing let’s show some love and be all about girl power!
I am in the LA area and I definitely want to plan another brunch to get some badass babes together so if you’re in the area don’t be shy and let’s connect! I live for coffee dates, brunch or even getting together to shoot!
