It feels a bit funny with parcels arriving all the time, it feels a bit funny to be sharing with you guys constantly, almost shouting “look what I got now”. It can feel a bit funny receiving so much when there are so many people out there doing so much worse, they are so much more in need and have so much more crazy going on for them.
It feels a bit funny for me to even talk about the whole sharing on social media thing, the advertising part of Instagram, but I want to be so open and honest with you guys always and there’s been this burning part of me that wanted to talk about it more. There’s also this part of me that thinks I should get on stories and chat more like all the other people on here but that can wait a bit longer 😜…
What I want to start by saying is that we left our home with almost nothing… yes we get to keep the brickwork frame of downstairs but upstairs, which was the house part, was either burnt to a crisp or completely water damaged or contaminated or mouldy 🤦🏼♀️ which you already know. A few things were salvaged like some camping gear and a couple of surfboards 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 but mostly everything else we have had to part with. EVERY SINGLE thing that we have received in the past 7 weeks has been so unbelievably appreciated and I do want to shout to the rooftops and tell everyone how amazing these brands or businesses or people are! I am so so so grateful and I want you guys to head over to these pages or profiles and check out their stuff because how amazing are they for reaching out and gifting us with their love in this crap time?!?!? I want you to know that everything I post on my profile is because I want to! They’ve helped me and I believe their product could help you.
I have always shared on social media because I want to, I’ve always shared my journey and I have shared brands and businesses that I thought could help my readers. Sometimes I get paid and sometimes I don’t. It has become some sort of a business to me and I am so grateful for it! I am so grateful for the connections I’ve made and the support I’ve had. I try not to seem like I’m a constant advertisement because I want you to know I’m real, this is my story and the things I share are things I am genuinely wanting to share with you. Sometimes I’m more active than other times but I hope that by sharing my story, it can help someone else. Through being a mum, or going through a tragedy, or just knowing that their not alone. So just know I’m so stoked to have you all by my side and so grateful for the brands that have trusted me and keep trusting me to work with them. I know Social media can one of those things that you either love or hate but for me, right now, it is such a blessing!!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼❤️
