The Invitations Are Flying In!

Last Update: May 08, 2018

I am so excited - suddenly I have a busting social life again. Since becoming a mom life has become not exactly boring, but certainly more sedate and quiet.

When I leave my home it is just to lift my kids to school and back and to go grocery shopping. Oh no wait, sometimes on a Friday night I go completely wild and attend an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting down the road.

Get the picture? A decade ago I used to be the life of the parrty - I would be out and about every single night of the week. Ok mostly embarrassing myself and getting alcohol poisoning... but I was still busy. I used to call myself a social butterfly but I was more like a train wreck.

Then I got clean and spent my days being involved with the 12 step fellowship and I still had a very active social life.

Now being a mom and in a small town things have been so quiet for so long... however recently things have started changing and it is exciting.

In the last 2 weeks I have been invited to 3 social engagements through my blogging - one is the #MommyHero event tomorrow where I am meeting up with Lauren. I have also been invited to a PR event for LG next week in Cape Town and I had to say yes since I did two big influencer jobs for LG along with awesome freebies (a fancy microwave and washing machine)... and now today I have been invited to a PR lunch event for Netflix which is happening tomorrow in Cape Town and as luck would have it I am already in Cape Town so maybe I can go from the #MommyHero event through to a free lunch! I am just waiting on the time for the Neflix event.

Oh my word I am going to have to go shopping for new clothing at this rate - I've only got comfy mom clothing now since I barely leave the house!

Obviously my name is getting around in the right circles now, so this is really exciting for me. I

Bring it ON!

That is indeed exciting, Lynn! It's amazing how things fall into place, when we make the decision to get our lives in order.

I commend you for both your personal and professional accomplishments, Lynn. And yes, you simply MUST get some new dresses!!! When in doubt, you can't go wrong with a wrap dress. Enjoy!

I believe what you had put in into your works have started to pay off. It's time to collect some of the dividends while still depositing good investment into it. You definitely deserve it Lynne!. Now you are the real ambassador here in WA and outside as well.

Oh wow Lynne, I am so excited for you and about tomorrow!!! My Mom and I just went for birthday Pedicures in preparation for our foot massages at the #HappyEvent. Its her birthday today and 8 still had a voucher from mine. Yay!! I also have no idea what I'm going to wear though.
Well done on all your invites. Sounds like such fun. Hope the Netflix timing works out.

Nope the Netflix one is from 10h30 till 2pm so it isn't going to work out, I am so bummed!

Happy birthday to your mom, I saw your post but wasn't able to leave a message as I was half way out the door to get my kids :)

Oh you are so lucky getting pedicures.... I might have to hide my feet!

Well done you Lynne.
These type of events are great for generating business and making contacts as well so put yourself about a wee bit and talk to as many people as possible.

Do you have any business cards you can hand out?
If not get some made up.

Onwards and Upwards.
Enjoy your Tuesday over there in SA.

Hey Robert

Yes I was thinking about just that very thing. I don't have any business cards - I haven't had any since I had my online store! I must most certainly get some more made up.

Every little helps Lynne.
When I'm out and about uptown I leave them everywhere - train stations, bus stations, libraries, public telephone boxes and on the bus as well lol.

If you have the software and printer you could do them yourself.

Take Care.

Always a good reason to fill your clothes closet with new stuff:)) Don't forget the shoes...

Yes I must get shoes... I only have flip flops for home and wellies for when I go to my mom's farm. Oh dear.

Indeed - but I can't make the Netflix one :( I just got the time and it conflicts with my #MommyHero one. Oh well I can't win them all.... but hey the PR lady has my details now! I am sure there will be more.
