How did your In­sta­gram ac­count be­come so pop­u­lar?

I posted a photo of Win­ters first nurs­ery which was then re­posted on the Kar­dashian Kids page which had well over one mil­lion fol­low­ers. Within a day we had gained al­most 5000 fol­low­ers. We then got re­posted another four times on their ac­count and also got re­posted on other large In­sta­gram ac­counts. From then it grew quite quickly. What’s in­volved with be­ing an In­sta­gram­mer?

Most com­pa­nies send me a range of their prod­ucts. I then try them out or style them for a cer­tain amount of photos posted on my ac­count. We then ne­go­ti­ate a price and sign con­tracts. Af­ter I have been paid I start the styling and post­ing of the prod­uct. If both par­ties are happy with how the pro­mot­ing/styling went, con­tracts can be re­newed and signed for a fur­ther 3-6 months So ba­si­cally you get paid to get sent cool stuff?

It al­ways feels like Christ­mas. The post­man and I are on a first name ba­sis. Apart from this crazy world of In­sta­gram, what else has Win­ter given you?

Life is a lit­tle chaotic and all over the place when walk­ing into moth­er­hood, but man it’s this feel­ing that can’t be ex­plained. I truly be­lieve ba­bies teach us just as much as we teach them.
