Collaboration Over Competition + Instagram Giveaway


Shop my look: Bright Red Sweater // Ripped Jeans // Mules

Shop Abi’s Look Here // Shop Courtney’s Look Here

One of the things that is closest to my heart is Collaboration over Competition. Not only as a blogger but as women we are constantly thinking to ourselves “am I good enough”. Thoughts like this poison our minds against ourselves and social media does not help.

It is so hard not to look at people on Instagram + Facebook and think “I am not good enough”, “she is way prettier”, “why can’t I look like that”. It is also easy as a blogger to want to do better or get more sponsored posts or whatever compared to other bloggers. To be honest this was my main fear when I started blogger. I was so scared for the mean comments, the inevitable competition, and the constant criticism of myself.

Then I met some pretty amazing ladies through Instagram. They taught me that collaboration and friendship is so much better and so much more fun than competing and comparing. I also realized that we all have our own style, our own personality, and at the end of the day its OK that we are walking a different path with different collabs, and different followers.

So I was so excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with two of my favorite bloggers who have turned favorite friends – Abi from Abigail Says and Courtney from Life of a Medschool Wife. We are also partnering with some amazing boutiques who believe the same to host a huge GIVEAWAY! Head to my Instagram to enter to win the following items:

  1. 2 pairs of Sugar Fix Earrings
  2. A $50 Gift card to shop at Mode (They have brands like Free People)
  3. A $50 Gift card to shop at Pink Petal Boutique (Grey sweater from this post is from there)
  4. A $50 Gift card to shop at The Blush Boutique (My fav jeans came from here!)

Thank you all for reading and for supporting me and my journey. It is always tough to remember and even tougher to do but this week try telling yourself how amazing you are instead of comparing yourself to others 🙂
