Today is Sunday, time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week in and out of the blog. As usual I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years by Kimberly @caffeinatedreviewer .
First I want to say sorry if I didn’t reply to your comment (but I should have visited and commented on your blog) but since two months ago I think, Jetpack changed something and I can’t answer from the post self. I have to go to my dashboard to reply and my reply get inserted between other comments. Result: I don’t know which comment I replied to and which I am still to answer! I try to be exhaustive but it’s possible that I missed some! But please do comment! It always makes me happy and I do my best to visit and comment back.
In my private life
My daughter is back home since one week and so far so good! We will cross all our fingers and toes that it stays like that! We are extra careful to avoid making noises, tiptoeing and all!
Still working from home as I’ve sais that’s what I’ll do since end August but it was a short week of two days! Yay!
I took that free time to read, even if I realized today that I haven’t posted a single review this week! But four reviews are already scheduled for next week so there’s that!
I also “repped” my ass of from Beacon Book Box and The Story Gift on Instagram. I am still waiting for my free box to arrive as COVID has completely disrupted the shipping but as I want to still be a good rep, it pushes me to get creative in my pictures and use phtotshop. See the picture below.
And I also have been chosen to represent another company @bookbookowl !
Jen designs amazing bookmarks and I can’t wait to show them on my feed!
Talking about being rep for companies, I don’t do it for the free goods only. I think hard before entering a rep search and ask if their product match my feed, my personality. Show what I love and who I am. And I think that also works for the company as it means we are a good match with the same values, the same interest and aesthetic.
I have been asked to rep for a watch company for example or a fitness company but I turned them down as it made zero sense to me. I have a bookstagram account guys! Plus I am picky about the aesthetic. It has to be something that’s talking to me. Something I am in love with and be very happy to promote because I believe in the product.
And last personal info: I told you that I had been lazy at blogging but crazy funko popping LOL That’s because yesterday I finished my newest funko!
Meet Hunt Athalar, badass angel from Crescent City by Sarah J Maas!
Expect a tutorial on how to make that little guy in the coming week!
