So I don’t know whether this is a breakdown or a positive realisation but I am completely done with Social Influencing.
Social Media Influencing, overall actually makes you addicted to your phone. I personally really resist being on my phone 24/7 as I recognise it’s unhealthy and I’m more interested in other things in life.
I don’t want to be wearing an outfit just so that I can take a picture in it and share where it’s from. Find your own style people. I don’t want to be at a music event etc. and feel like I have to be taking photos NON-stop to fill content for my blog, share on Instagram and link up all my outfits. It all means absolutely NOTHING.
I literally realised at Tomorrowland how ridiculous it was. One of my favourite opportunities with influencing of recent was working with Elsie and Fred. They sent me some UNREAL pieces to promote in Tomorrowland which of course sounds like a bit of a dream. But the reality was way more annoying and in some ways embarrassing. You have to have it in the back of your mind whilst your in the best place on earth, that you need to get good photos and look good all the time. I just wanted to enjoy the moment I was in and worrying about getting good photos BRINGS YOU DOWN.
I find it really hideous asking friends to take pictures of you. Sometimes they must just think you’re a dickhead. They must see anything you say or any excuse you make to them as “take a pic of me for the people please, the people want to see my outfit”. Who do you think you are hun? Are you even having a good time? Having a photoshoot whilst your fave DJ on is absolute NONSENSE.
I love fashion anyway and to be honest I’d always make effort with my outfits to look funky on a daily basis or for festivals. However one day at a festival I’d love to get some minging shorts on and a tee shirt, no make-up and hair up in a greasy bun and it not matter in my head. I’m trapped in the influencing ways of feeling like I can’t have a half arsed look, which is bullshit.
My love for fashion and photography is what lead me naturally into a path online of influencing but I want to focus on the 2 without having to impress others all the time. Sign me out of having a duty to excite and inspire others, that pressure is nae good for anyone’s head.
I want the purpose of all my online content to be for me and to better me as a person. My blogs will still continue to talk about holidays, festivals, music events and social events with my friends but I want to talk more and open up more. I will NOT be promoting beauty or fashion brands. I will be promoting my own development into a fashion related career and it will be on my own terms.
I’m closed for Spiritual Maintenance.
