I’m Not Your Classic Blogger And I’m Cool With That

An email landed in my inbox a couple of weeks ago with a brief for a campaign attached. They wanted the influencers, including me, to make a video in which they show themselves potentially in gym gear, with natural hair and makeup and “well kept, elegant nails.” Now I’m not sure about your reaction, but when I read this my…

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018
