The company you keep says a lot about you so, why shouldn’t it be impossible to be friends with fellow influencers? While it’s true that the business of blogging can be quite catty and competitive—I truly believe that it’s time that women support one another. It’s not about your influence, trust me. I couldn’t care less if you have 1o or 10,000 followers, to me what really matters is the heart of a person.
So, the short answer to this question is yes. In fact, they’re they ones that will truly get you. They understand that this industry is glamorous, yes, but it can be a strain as well, especially during Fashion Week. My assistant Allison and I were literally heading from show to show which is an amazing privilege, yet exhausting. Being your own boss means a self-managed work schedule, but one that ends up being 24/7. Hence when I run into fellow influencers I connected on Instagram with and meet in real life, well, it’s simply fun! Especially when you’re on the same wavelength! I met so many amazing influencers, from Audrey of Happily Audrey, Sara of Fashinny, Hollyn of P.S. I’m from the Midwest, and more. These ladies know firsthand that photoshoots are fun, but having a camera in your face when you’re tired, stressed and trying to make a client happy can be draining. Being understood like that is a blessing, believe me. It seems certain parts of our society still don’t quite understand what it really means to be an influencer. Perhaps the biggest misconception is that they think that we don’t work which couldn’t be more far from being the truth.
These ladies, who are now consider as friends, understand me and the business we are in. It’s a whole production of the content I publish, including this post. I had a meeting with Marie Claire Magazine in the morning, followed by attending shows, such as Galtiscopio, Concept Korea, BaubleBar, Vaishali, Cindy Monteiro, etc., and here I am now writing the content at midnight, like I said it’s 24/7. These pictures were taken in between shows. But these little moments mean so much, and I think my laughter says it all. Cheers to real friendships!
As always, thanks so much for reading & have a lovely Wednesday!
