Influencer marketing has taken the world of social media by storm. Almost every brand now has a dedicated section within their marketing strategy for influencers and it’s not surprising why. Influencers can be a really powerful way to convey your brands key messages, showcase products and services you offer and gain brand awareness to a wider audience that you otherwise may not be able to reach. A recent survey found that in 2019, 80% of marketers said they find influencer marketing effective and 71% said they rate the quality of customers and traffic from influencer marketing as better than other marketing sources.

Almost there yet or waiting for the Christmas Eve rush? . I’ve bought some of the new babies we know a little selection of Aveeno Baby skincare.

So I’m just going to be completely honest with you all… I secretly really wasn’t looking forward to my birthday this year!?Turning 23 officially marks 10 whole years since I first became unwell. An entire decade of missed plans/milestones, isolation, more bad days than good and feeling inadequate as a result of this compared to my ‘healthy’ friends! . . There was just something about this birthday that forced me to face those harsh realities head on. My young, naive 13 year old self had dreamed of having an incredible career, my full health and energy, and a social life so with each year that passes it becomes a little harder to accept. . . But then I put on my positive head and realised that you know what?! I should be celebrating because although chronic illness has put me in a different place in life than everyone else my age I should always remind myself (and others) that it’s not something to be ashamed of. . . Life doesn’t always go to plan, so hey that’s even more reason to plan those drinks out with friends, eat all of the cake and laugh as much as possible and I guess I just wanted to remind you all that if you ever feel like your life hasn’t quite gone to plan too??? here’s to winging it and partying along the way!??‍♀️?

-Cosy Time with Pelù ?- Spesso mi chiedete da dove derivi il nome Pelù ed é arrivato il momento di raccontarvelo. Pelù nasce il quel di Rocca d’Arazzo come “Honey Creek di Rivombrosa” ?ma viene ribattezzata Pelù in onore di un pupazzo a forma di orsetto lavatore che, fin da piccola, porto con me. Questo ormai consunto procione di pezza è ora propietà del duo (sopravviverà??) Di sicuro Harvey e Catherine amano prendersi cura di Pelù: la coccolano sempre e amano darle la pappa. Ultimante Pelù sta testando le crocchette al pollo di @schesir formulate con una sola proteina animale, vitamine e minerali; le spolvera in un nano secondo sotto l’occhio vigile del duo! #Schesir #SchesirDryLarge #adv

“City of stars… are you shining just for me?” – La La Land ✨ ⠀ I know, I know, we’re only on day two and I’ve got another Ryan Gosling cameo. What can I say, if ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I watched La La Land on the way back to the UK from America once upon a time and loved it. It was one of those films that I got particularly emotional during, it’s visually beautiful too… a city of stars. ⠀ For this one, I’ve been working on my photoshop skills. I’m not very good but it was fun to try out. To be honest, I was hoping for a beautiful London sunset when we shot this so I wouldn’t need to do much editing. But London isn’t known for being sunny so the usual weather was grey and miserable (swipe to see the original ?). Also, while we were shooting this using a tripod at the top of Primrose Hill people were saying “oooh La La Land”! So I kinda think we nailed it ? #AVeryKellyValentines
