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.
Last week excitingly saw me host a style party in my home for one of the most coveted brands in Sweden, me&i.
I've reviewed their clothes for over a year now and adore working with such a stylish company whose collections for kids and women are absolutely this family's collective style - vibrant, unisex kidswear and understated, classic womenswear.
I love working with me&i, they're a brand I personally feel truly confident in, they really understand what women (and kids) want and need from clothes- well cut, chic pieces that are durable and really last, with a super-cool vintage feel to them.
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.
This family loves to party and those who follow this blog knows we have a lot of get-togethers-great Greek or Italian food (usually supplied by the family's restaurants), the funniest and funnest company you can imagine (we literally laugh the whole time), music (always) and most of all (and soppiest) there's always so much bloody love in the room.
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!
