Hello Guys & Gals!
I started my Instagram and blog as a placed to share my life. Before I knew it they both grew to something I never imagined. My instagram especially grew and I made some great friends and connections. Over the course the of the year my instagram @Lifewith2tots became a Huge family based account which is exactly what I wanted. I wanted to connect with other parents and talk about my parenting journey the good and the bad and share our lives whilst joining in other parents journeys. Although with this we were sent some amazing products for the kids mainly to try and give opinions on which we are so beyond grateful for and the kids love it. My instagram stories also grew and I built a good returning following on there. My confidence grew and now I daily “Vlog” with in that. I love my instagram and its became a place for me to vent.
With all that said i felt some of my own passions just didnt fit within that vibe. Things like makeup and skincare if I reviewed them or just wanted to share them they didnt fit with the parenting home family style of the current instagram. I also felt at times I wanted to talk about myself on a more personal level and it didnt seem “family friendly” or the style of our profile.
I decided I was going to open a second gram, somewhere for me, and so thats what I did!!
I thought at least for a week on a name and I didnt want to completely disconnect from my family brand because im still daily vlogging over there and still posting so I wanted the brands to tie together. I decided with @LifeWithJustNat.
And so my branch off brand was created woohoo happy birthday to me hah! On my second account ill be sharing my love for Makeup, cosmetics and everything in between and involved in beauty! Im so excited for this and I finally feel I have the missing piece to what I was struggling with. I have my own space to share things that our exciting for me rather than just the family.
For the first time in a while ive had that fire back, the spark of excitement to put myself out there. To connect with brands and actually feel like I have a right to. Before I felt that beauty brands may thing, wait your a parenting niche and they’d be completely right. Lifewith2tots is defiantly family and any beauty items would just Stand out on the grid and not in a good way more of an odd way.
Ive come up with a compromise with brands. Obviously my new instagram numbers aren’t nowhere near out 4400 on lifewith2tots so until the numbers rise on my 2nd account ill still show all PR through my main accounts stories that way they are still getting the exposure and promo. Then once reviewed there little pictures will live on my 2nd beauty accounts grid. Best of both worlds.
Im really excited with my new account and I hope you’ll join me over!
Thats enough from me today so I hope you all have a fabulous day!
