As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her Halloween looks. I was even more pleasantly surprised that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Head to our blog to find out how. Have you ever made your own costume? .

I will never forget the day we brought Elle home from the rescue. Super Dad took one look at her and said he was sure she was part lion... She was just missing the mane. So, when we had to decide what type of costume to get Elle this year for Halloween, I knew she HAD to be a lion! And @chewy had the perfect costume for her! Of course, Super Dad and Falynn had to get in on the action too. 
Now tell us, WHO WORE IT BEST?
Super Dad, Falynn or Elle?

Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

Have you ever scrolled through social media and saw some sort of food or recipe and then found yourself hours later at the supermarket, buying all of the ingredients to make that item?  Have you ever seen a pair of shoes in a picture and immediately purchased them because you realized that you HAD to have them?  Have you seen a picture of your friends at a movie theater, only to find yourself planning a movie theater trip for your family that same day?  They call that social media influence and it’s basically what brand repping is all about.

I’ve definitely noticed how much influence social media has on me. In June, I came across a video of a bath bomb on Facebook and found myself just minutes later, asking for small shop bath bomb companies in our Brand Rep group on Facebook.  Not even an hour later, I had purchased a few for my girls from Carol and Grace, a shop that came highly recommended by our repping friends.  Since then, we have become a part of the team and have purchased many more.  If not for that one video, none of that would have happened and my girls wouldn’t have fallen in love with bath bombs.

A few weeks ago, I saw another video on Facebook for Terra’s Kitchen, a healthy food delivery service.  There was a link to save $40 off of my first order and like a switch in my brain had just been flipped, I was on the site placing our first order (which was amazing by the way).   When I received the box, I took did a Facebook live video while I opened it, which has since been viewed by almost 600 people. I wasn’t asked to create that video, I just did it…. which is what social media influence is all about.  Free marketing for companies.  And while some give you an incentive to share (Terra’s Kitchen will give you a $25 credit for each person you refer and some small shops offer you free merchandise when a certain number of people use your discount code), sometimes you just share to share.  Isn’t that what social media is all about?

With thousands of small shops, it would be nearly impossible to find them all without the brand rep community.  When I’m scrolling through Instagram, I’m not only looking at photography inspiration (which is also huge for me), but I’m looking at each outfit, each accessory, each pair of shoes.  If something catches my eye, I tap the pic and check out the shop.  It’s the way I’ve found most of our favorite shops.  I’m not sure that we realize how much influence we have, just by posting a picture or two on social media.  It’s such a powerful tool.  We have the ability to reach so many people with our positive (and sometimes negative) experiences.  Just by sharing, you are helping out a business to grow and you could be the difference between them making it or deciding to close up shop.

Whether you are a brand rep for a particular company, you are provided an invite link, or you just love a company,  make sure to help them out by sharing on social media.  You’d be surprised how much of a difference you can make, especially in the lives of a small shop owner!

What do you think of social media influence? Comment below and share your favorites and tell me how you found them or how you continue to spread the word about your favorite shops/companies.  Let’s show some love!  Have a topic you want me to talk about? Email us! Make sure to follow our daily small shop fashion on Instagram @thesmallfashionista and on our new Facebook page.

    Yes! And unfortunately sometimes social media marketing has more influence on us than we want. Lol. It used to be Saturday morning cartoon commercials in between the shows we would watch…. Now social media marketing IS THE SHOW with influencers posting YouTube videos of whatever products they’re promoting. Several of my son’s favorites are Nerf Patrol, The Axel Show, Ryan’s Toy Review and Jack Jack Plays. Needless to say every time they have a new video out promoting toys, Ethan wants them.

    While those influencers are on a totally different playing field and mostly promote huge toy manufacturers, I see the world of brand repping and how we support each other as a million times better and stronger for what we do. We take nothing – literally nothing, a thought, a dream, and make it a reality for hard working shop mamas.

    I am so thankful for all of my rep/shop friends. And appreciate everything they do. Even these blogs you do Heather. You help new shops and reps take it to the next level. Much love to you. ❤
