Friday, on my way to work, I hit a milestone that I’ve been aiming at reaching for more than 2 and a half years – I hit the big 10 thousand followers on Instagram!!! This may seem like a fickle goal to some, but Instagram has literally changed my life. It’s connected me with people from all over the world, allowed me to travel and basically create a living resume of all of my creative work in the realm of sustainable and ethical fashion. It has opened up countless doors for me, and helped me connect with so many fascinating people – it’s an endless source of inspiration!
Hitting this goal has made me reflect on how far I’ve come since I started this blog almost 3 years ago. It has helped me learn so much about myself, and I have nothing but gratitude for all the opportunities and fun things I’ve got to do along the way. I also couldn’t have done it without the constant support and photo skills of my fiance Jamie – he’s really a big part of The Unmaterial Girl and he needs extra props!
Here’s to the next 10k!
P.s I realise these balloons aren’t the most environmentally friendly way to celebrate, so I made sure I bought ones that can be recycled, but I actually plan on cutting them up and making gift bags.
