Hi guys!!!! Long time no see 🙂
First off, I wanna thank all of you from the bottom of my heart who stuck around during my absence. I lost A LOT of followers; mutual followers who I thought were my friends, and even a few companies unfollowed me and dropped me as an affiliate. This hurt me at first, but I realize now that it doesn’t matter...I’m alive, I have a job, I have the best boyfriend a girl could ask and a roof over my head. I was so stressed out in my personal life and I was working insane hours at my job, the stress was consuming me but social media consumed me even more to the point where nothing mattered but getting ahead and getting bigger numbers. I made a post that was more in depth about this (now deleted) and thank you to everyone who praised me for my honesty and said sweet words to me. Whether people on here want to admit it or not, we ALL get jealous and we all get bitter because someone received brand recognition but you didn’t. Someone made so and so’s PR list but you didn’t. Someone got reposted by a huge page but you’ve never even received the time of day from that page no matter how much or how long you’ve been tagging them. These things used to be SO important to me and I let it swallow me whole. I lost a lot while I was away but I like to think I gained more. I found out who my true friends and followers are, which companies have my back and will stick by my side when I need time off for myself, and I did A LOTTT of soul searching.
I can honestly say I’m a better person for taking 2 months off and I can’t tell you guys how happy I am. Please don’t let social media consume you and please don’t get in the mindset that you need validation or recognition from big pages and big brands. And PLEASE whatever you do, do NOT let this get to your head. Celebrate in silence. Set realistic goals for yourself and remain level headed during the process. I’m not perfect and I’ve made a lot of mistakes on here, but I’ve learned many many lessons. I love you guys and I’m happy to start posting again!! Thank you if you read all of this 😊
Makeup deets will be in the comments section cause I can’t fit them in here 😂
