Hi all! I am a lifestyle blogger with published work that revolves around style roundups, gift guides, marriage, pregnancy, wellness, coffee talks where I get real and authentic, and home life. As far as where I am heading as an "influencer," first off, I tend to shy away from that term because I don't just share content just to share, or to influence someone to make a quick buck. I share content I enjoy producing and creating, and that my audience loves to read or see. So where am I heading? Well, I want to continue to grow my brand, blog and following authentically. I want to inspire those who read my blog content. I want to work with brands I love, trust and know my audience will love too. I want to provide help, knowledge, guidance, and support with my content. I am in the people business and want to solve any problems I can for others and help make their lives a bit easier, if possible. My current audience consists of mostly women ages 18-55+ and of course my supportive husband (he's the best)! I would love to collab and work with brands that embody all the things I love which include women's fashion (mom styles), baby brands, all-natural health, wellness, and beauty, fitness, travel. Did I mention I live on a farm, we call it the Salinas Homestead, so as we grow and nurture our homestead, brand collabs that align with my farm girl life would be a fun opportunity.
I remember when I started to learn how to use social media to make extra money from home. I also remember during those beginning stages I was encouraged and taught to only show the high life I lived. Don't be to controversial. Don't talk about politics or religion. Don't stand up for your beliefs because you need to be liked so you can have tons of followers and then that'll help you make more money. I thought ok listen to the "experts."⠀ ⠀ I then realized who am I? Who am I if I'm scared to show who I truly am and what I truly believe in? What's my image matter if it's fake? What example am I putting out there for younger females who follow me?⠀ ⠀ I know what I share, what I say, and what I may believe in may not be for everyone and I've come to be OK with that. I don't need everyone to agree or like what I post, because it's not for everyone. But I would rather be me then be someone who just wants a big number of followers at the top of their instagram.⠀ ⠀ I love social media because not only can you use it to make a side income (it's where things are going anyways) but you can truly connect with real people from all over the place. Most of you here know me and some of you don't know a lot about me so I'll tell you one crucial part about me.⠀ ⠀ I will never put up a fake facade.⠀ I will never share things I don't believe in.⠀ I will not follow the crowds.⠀ I will never abuse my so called "influence" (hate that term) just to make money.⠀ I will never share anything with you I don't love or use.⠀ ⠀ I am a stay at home mom of twin boys, I am a content creator, I love blogging and I use social media to bring income home. I believe in God, I believe in Marriage, I believe there is good in People, I believe in standing up for what's right. I believe in always being your true authentic self. #mytrueself #beauthentic
Maybe to you, it’s a little confusing, but let me explain, good things take time over an extended period of time. So we had two choices to purchase a home that was currently being built back home, in an up and coming neighborhood or build at the family farm, which was our ultimate goal. We changed our mind and decided the family farm was the absolute right choice for us and our future, good thing we didn’t get tied down to the other property we looked at! The moral of my story is, if we rushed and tried to move to the farm 4 years ago, we would not have built the home we dreamn’t of, and we would have got something we did not really want because we just weren’t ready financially.
I love being home with my guys❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you know what else I love? I love the fact that when my boys can’t sleep, and need me I can be there with them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you know what else I love? That I can be nap trapped with two babies and work right from my phone.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you know what else I love? That I have an opportunity that gives me a way to be a stay home mama and a provider. I don’t have the choose between the mom life or work life - I’m making both happen in the comfort of my home, in my jammies, hair never brushed, teeth sometimes brushed (🤭🤪), 4 day unwashed hair (thank god for dry shampoo), and same shirt from how ever long ago! #twinmamalife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you know what else I love? When my husband is off from work, we don’t miss a beat in our friendship and marriage because I get to be present at home with him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you know what else I love? That I can model to my sons that you can literally do anything you want in your life. You don’t have to follow what others do or the social norms. You create your happy, it just takes guts to go for it and to make it happen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you know what else I love? That I am surrounded by mamas and women alike. Women that are so freaking raw and authentic! I’ve needed them in my life!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m not searching to be rich in wealth but rich in time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If there is one thing 2020 should have taught you, it’s that no job is secure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If this is you, I encourage you to find ways to make additional income from your phone (your on your phone for hours a day any ways - so make it worth it)! There are opportunities left and right! Just start and go for it! And if you don’t know where to start, I can help❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #allthingsaileen
But as I started to really listen to the lyrics, instead of just jamming out and thinking about the movie Bridesmaids, I got to thinking and feeling all kinds of things, which tends happen to me when I am driving and listening to music, my mind tends to run wild! I started thinking about my life and this entrepreneurial journey that I was lead to and how this song explained exactly how I feel and felt a year ago to now. No one can change your life except for you Don’t ever let anyone step all over you Just open your heart and your mind Is it really fair to feel this way inside? I cared so much about other people’s opinions that it just enveloped me and took over my entire way of thinking and I started to judge myself for any little things I did, until I “[opened my] heart and mind.
#sponsored ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My friends of @maryruthorganics sent me this liquid nighttime multi-mineral to help me get back some quality sleep! They must have noticed with twin babies that I was in need of some serious sleep - GOOD SLEEP! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I wanted to give it a week or two before I shared my experience so I could really give my body a chance to do it’s thing! Well I love this stuff and and it taste great! Great for all ages and y’all know I love liquid vitamins because they absorb the absolute best! Sweet dreams!
So keeping lotion bedside, for after a shower is the best reminder to keep my dry skin moisturized. Not only do I keep it for when I take my vitamin E but who else out there wakes up at 2 or 3 in the morning thirsting for water like they were lost out in the desert with no water for months! ? But like the good wifey I am, I choose to work smarter, not harder, and keep water bedside so I do not physically have to get up! I do not know why but my best thoughts happen at night, and it is not always the best thing because I love to get my sleep on!
I am a wife, a wellness entrepreneur, college student, fitness enthusiast, dog mom, sister, daughter, and friend. I want to help you get through the things I needed help with. We go through many different things in life and I want to be your virtual shoulder to lean on (sending you virtual hugs). Stay connected to hear all about this thing called life–life with Aileen!
#nicuawarnessmonth ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “God made [us] so that you could see small things are strong too.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Life in the NICU tests you in ways I never thought possible. Whether it’s a week or months, being in the NICU is really hard. Not knowing is hard. Every alarm that sounds makes your heart drop in fear every single time because your baby is struggling to learn to breathe and live outside your belly. Every step forward feels like two steps back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Being a NICU parent you miss out on so many first that you get with your babies. You're not the first to hold your baby or the first to feed, change or bathe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You live in the the family room just so you don't miss any updates, feedings, or changes. Daddy was on top of their schedule instantly since I was unable to walk or move independently. We stayed in the NICU family room all day until late at night. It hurts to leave the hospital knowing your babies can't go with you yet. Guilt takes over you every time you leave, whether its to eat or clean your self up, or nap. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your heart races and your breathes become deeper as you wait to hear results of every test, hoping they passed so you become one step closer to going home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The NICU breaks you down. It makes new Daddy's cry their eyes out seeing their babies hooked up, pricked and in pain knowing that they can’t do anything or take that pain away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But the NICU shows you how strong your babies are, and how strong your relationship is. You learn to be present in every moment. You learn grace for your partner who's struggling mentally and emotionally. You learn that speaking into your babies that they are strong, that this will strengthen them, that God's got them because they are made for more - WORKS! You learn that God hears and answers your every prayer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sending extra love and strength to #nicuparents I get it now and your not alone❤️
