    The mind boggles that you couldn’t sense that that post was dripping in sarcasm :p

    Ha! Was it really? Lol, it's so hard to tell with her!

    The irony of putting your own content behind a paywall and then pirating someone elses....

    In the argot of FBG, I cannot deal...with these moving collages of her mornings. Yesterday it was getting her daughter ready (with an emphasis on her clothes & accessories - because that's how all young mums roll??) and this morning, it's making coffee.
    I generally like how mumsy she is - and her little girl is absolutely adorable - but is this 'content'?

    Since this - I’ve watched her change her clothes approx 10 time - on fast forward Thank Christ. Im afraid to check how many likes it got. It’s only encouraging her

    There was a segment today on The Business on RTÉ about Influencers.
    Influencing the Market
    Influencers were getting a grilling this week as ''Fyre: The greatest party that never happened'' was released on Netflix. It's been an unregulated sector, so is that about to change? We're joined by Eimear McManus, founder of the Digital Works Agency.

    Is it just me or are some of these Irish “Fitness influencers” beginning to look very desperate, just seen one advertising counterfeit products on her Instagram, to a website where the produce is being sold for four times the original price.. have also lately seen a number of them trying to sell fitness plans and they not even qualified pts or nutritionists

    Over saturation of the market
    Relatively inexpensive for someone with a decent following to go get "qualified" and start selling course
    Heck I've even seen influencers that are just in shape getting hounded to set up fitness classes or offer advice

    No, she’s on today just checked, asked 20 questions (half I’d say she asked herself) and is showing her ‘hinch haul’. Really seems to be running out of content and sponsors.

    She really does seem to be at end of the line when jumping on with cleaning products.

    She approached F45 and asked them to give her free gym sessions in exchange for content, which they did. But I think she went once and said it’s all sweaty high fives.
    She also approached River Medical asking for free chin fat freezing in exchange for posts and they also obliged.
    Not sure what’s worse, the fact that she has the neck to approach people for free stuff but thinks her rambling essays should be paid for, or that companies actually agree to it.

    She has some neck alright, but the fat freezing should help with that!

    Chriogenically freeze her like Wesley Snipes in Demolition Man and let the future deal with her.

    Nice work if you can get it. Like if it's a supplementary income, it's a nice earner sitting around one night a week talking ****e, even if you do pay for production out of it.

    Jesus! I’m shocked by that I don’t think I could listen to them if paid that. But I wouldn’t be their target audience.

    Oh just a boardsie got called out on ukbloggersunveiled Insta stories for being an abhorrent cnut in galz who snap!

    I read that last night and had never looked at this supermomslimming one before.
    I don’t think the digs were as harsh as that girl made out but the woman seems very intimidating.
    Not only that, the people who were sticking up for her in the comments had a very aggressive tone.
    It seems one of her big selling points is the fact that she has 8 children. How deplorable.

    I would never have known they were a boardsie. Did you just unmask someone?
