Anyone else getting a little tired of sharing every little aspect of their lives on social media. I for one am getting annoyed by the whole thing. I don’t know when or how it happened exactly but perhaps it was speaking with friends who are not on social media and getting the feeling that they were that much more content and relaxed in life than I was.
Of course, I would never be the one to bite the hand that feeds me; because to an extent, I am building my brands using social media sites like Instagram, Twitter and more recently Linkedin.
The issue is, I’m finding there is a lot of FAKENESS online that I can no longer stand.
Things like POD’s – where those who are in the group are supposed to show ‘support’ and ‘love’ yet, only do it for a short time before slyly un-following you. It’s okay for you to help them grow and win but they don’t don’t want you to. Typical ish but considering that there is enough room at the table for us all to eat. I can no longer indulge in the BS.
So this week, I removed myself from all these groups, unsubscribed from engagement groups and un-followed all the women who profess to be about us all rising but really don’t mind you doing good, just not better than them. Bye Sis!
That’s why my brand ‘Women Who Slay’ is more important than ever to me. I have genuinely wanted to champion those around me who I see trying and even back in my magazine days, I have done my best to support and promote all my friends that are singers, models, actors, business men and women, etc.
Although, I have never done this for something in return, I have more than welcomed a thank you and a quick RT of what I’ve done for them. Sadly though, there is a lot of fake HUMILITY online that I just haven’t got the time for.
Never allow your morals to go out the window for a few likes. They honestly won’t get you through the gates of heaven!
LOL but honestly guys, I’ve had a real wake up call of late and I’ve really had to take a step back and look at what I really want to invest my time in. As much as I really appreciate and respect the work influencers put in for it to become their full time gig, I don’t want to film everyday or continually be creating flawless, pre-prepped images of myself online. I’ve had enough of this world and I’m ready to create my best life, outside of the glare of the social media lights.
So guys, you will be seeing me online, but not as much anymore. I will share what I think is of interest and what is of value but the focus I am having now is more aligned to my brand and becoming a happier and healthier version of myself.
About this outfit…
I’m not sure if you know but I used to go out every Sunday and shoot 3-4 looks a time. The process was HARD and the gains from it were pretty few and far between. I did it because I felt I had to. Now I know that everything is a choice and I don’t really have to do anything I don’t want to do. Apart from, paying taxes and TV license because let’s face it. That is really a pointless bill!
Femme Luxe have continually delivered of late and as soon as I tried this two piece on, I knew we were onto something. I’m quite top heavy so I needed to double tie this top at the front but aside from that; it fitted perfectly.
I teamed the co-ord with my trusted faux fur coat/jacket from Ebay and my perspex heels from Ego Official. My shades and gold necklace are from H&M and my clutch bag is from Primark.
My good friend Brooklynflyer said I was giving everyone Foxy Brown vibes and I have to say I agree with him. What do you guys think?
