I used to go on Snapchat and talk to my followers 30 minutes to an hour at a time. I used to write up blog posts about the smoothies I made or my weekend with my family. I used to write up reviews on new products. I used to be more “connected”. And when I say “used to”, it seems like years ago and although it’s only been a few months, it’s been too long and I miss you guys. I stay as connected as possible with Instagram, but even then, I let it slip sometimes.
But the real questions is, how in the world are we in June?! Every month I think, NEXT month it’ll be better, NEXT month I’m free and I’m still trying to catch up with that “NEXT” month. Between meetings in New York, Italy & Chicago in 4 months, between Elcie, Lilit Makeup Studio, Youtube & Family, I haven’t had the chance to connect. Sometimes I think that it’s ok & that we should allow ourselves to disconnect and LIVE every so often; but when I do, I feel guilty and feel as though I’ve neglected my followers and that’s not fair either! So for those who always ask, “How do you balance it all?” - I’m still trying to figure it out
Staying active is really important for any Influencer. We need to always stay relevant, create good content and be creative. It doesn’t seem so complicated right? Believe me, it’s work! A simple makeup look takes time to do, takes time to catch good lighting, take enough photos, find one you like, editing, etc. For a mom with a business to run, this is 3x more difficult. I absolutely LOVE makeup and when I’m not creative I miss it and get mad at myself for it. So it’s basically this vicious cycle of me trying to catch up in one category or another.
However, I don’t want this to come off as a complaint! I HATE complaining and have completely shifted my mind to be the most optimist person I can be. But, I did want to catch up with you guys and give you a little insight on where I’ve been and tell you that I miss you.
Elcie has been kicking my butt. Having your own brand is a blessing and although I love every second of it, it’s more work than the 3 jobs I used to have at the same time! The stress level and the daily struggles are beyond; but it truly drives me and makes me want to work harder to become the best at what I do.
I have a LOT to update you guys on and in due time, I hope to be able to share it. I love you guys and hope that you’re all doing so well! I’m making an active decision to come back to this board soon, till then, share with me! Comment and share how your life’s been? I want to hear from you.
