Wow what a whirlwind the FunFest Blogger Summit was last weekend! It was one of those feel-good inspiring events that made me feel energised and excited (even more, if that was possible) about this beautiful world of blogging!
Rules, rules, rules. I get it, many, many rules when it comes to creativity, be it screenwriting to blogging and beyond, are incredibly useful for insight, guidance and inspiration but rules, my friends were made to be broken.
Blogging is utterly brilliant isn't it?! Thanks to my style blog Mummy's Got Style originally and this post HERE, stunning luxury designer baby bag brand Nova Harley hired me to model their beautiful changing bags, and nearly 1 year to the day, and 3 campaigns later, I'm hugely proud to be their model and ambassador.
I love working with me&i and have collaborated with them for years now-they're a seriously cool, super-fun, vibrant Swedish brand for kids (and ladies too), that really embody that retro vintage vibe for modern families everywhere.
Look at the bright kids line below-bursting with funky prints, truly happy-making fashion for kids of all ages.
So yesterday saw me head to Manchester for a special meeting with renowned modelling agency Nemesis. One of the biggest modelling agencies in the UK, they discovered and made so many of today's British stars, famous: Robbie Williams, Gary Barlow, Melanie Sykes, Vernon Kay, Michelle Keegan and as of today, they're representing little old me!
Oh the irony that this in itself is a commissioned post (!) but it is of value to you and my tips will hopefully help you too get work.
You see, I'm a full time professional blogger and have been for over 2 1/2 years, working with clients and brands both big and small that fit my blog and importantly my audience: you.
If they're of interest and use to me, products and services I would use myself, then I'm happy to endorse them on this blog here and mummysgotstyle.com, my style blog.
If you guys follow my style blog mummysgotstyle.com too, you'll know I'm a bit bit obsessed with fashion and how empowering and transformative clothes can be-and now the weather is turning, it's time to add another coat to the collection.
For the next week I'll be enjoying a family holiday in stunning Halkidiki in Greece.
I'll be totally switching off so there'll be no posts or linkies live from me or any social media interaction for that matter. My phone will be off as with all our family holidays.
Fear not though, I'll be regramming on my return and blogging life will resume again before you know it.
In the meanwhile, do check out any of my archive posts right here and why not head over to my style blog Mummy's Got Style too if you fancy a little fashion fix!
I've also included some recent posts that are personal faves of mine you might like to read whiles I'm away!
See you soon!
Over on my style blog Mummy's Got Style, it's #Fashionfriday, a linky for all you fashionistas where you can add style posts of you and your kids or fashion wish-lists. All style related posts are welcome- new, archived and as many posts as you like! Everybody's welcome too of course!
If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don't, where've you been?!) then you'll know last night saw my family come together for another legendary party at my stunning Auntie Angelou's beautiful home under a marquee in her garden.
...As many of you know I'll soon be setting off for a few days at the Cannes Film Festival... First up is a dress fitting for frocks for the festival and BritMums Live with Fever London in the Big Smoke and a crazy-early flight to the South of France on Tuesday morning.
