Ok Lets be honest here. The first thing we check in the morning is our social media, huh? How about right before we close our eyes? Yep! I'm guilty too. It used to be texts and emails but now, its a whole new ball game. We get so caught up and need to make sure we know what everyone is doing. Where they are going, what they are wearing, who they are dating ! Then we compare our exciting lives (or lack there of) to theirs. Sadly, it seems to be pretty common and no matter how many times we are reminded that the grass isn't always greener on the other side, we think MAYBE it really is though. Let me be the first to tell you that it isn't. No one is posting their tears from a breakup or their bills they can't afford. All we see are the glamorous times and parties we aren't invited to. Well....maybe someone begged a friend to take them to that party. They weren't even invited. Yes that sure has happened to me! When I first changed my hair to red, I wasn't invited to shit. Companies I worked for wouldn't hire me and I felt out of the loop. So I reached out to friends that were going to these events and asked if they wanted a plus one, Id be down! Also, how about those expensive dinners? Ive seen mannnnny times where girls were going to the front of these restaurants just for a picture/ tag!!! They never even went in.
Don't get me wrong, I think social media is awesome and I LOVE connecting with people but please remember that we all have good and bad days. Struggles. Bills. It isn't always red carpets or free products. Sometimes its smoke and mirrors and nobody is sharing that. But don't you worry your pretty little face because I will tell you how to get invited to events (if thats what you want), how to collaborate with brands and how to handle the good and bad of social media. I got you !!!
