If there are words for him I don't have them but what I do have is good news. He sent his son Jesus Christ as the word living proof, an image of the invisible God. The 1st born of all creation, but by him, all things were created, he is before all this and overall things he reigns. The humble son of God becoming the perfect sacrifice, he willing stood in our place, he is everything that was promised. Praise the living king.

New scam alert!!! How scammers scam influencers in 2019. Read now and be smart.

As an influencer, I come across different agents that represent various brands. People are developing new scamming techniques, bloggers and influencers are not left out. The irony of it is that influencers can get scammed by fake agents. Popular online stores have a lot of agents and some scammers are aware of this. Recently, an agent claiming to represent Rosegal sent me an email, asking if I will like to be a part of the summer campaign. She offered me items of clothing but I suggested we do an article publishing post and gave her my cost. She replied to my email stating that she will like to start with a collaboration featuring Rosegal products on my social platforms, asking me to select the items I will like to feature and add them to my cart.  I did and sent her the order number. She demanded that I re-order using a link, which I did. She then replied to my email again, asking that I send her the email and login password to my Rosegal account. Mind you, this is not the 1st time I am working with brands that require you to select items on their online store.  I totally knew this was fraud because if the company was aware that she is an agent reaching out to influencers she should automatically have access to another agent working with the same online store who handles orders and can access my profile without asking for my Rosegal password.






People are beginning to understand that influencers, bloggers, and marketers that know their way around the online (digital) and physical marketing industry stand to gain a lot in the long run and they are looking for new ways to scam them. Any agent working with a brand asking you to give out your email and login password to any website they claim to work with/for is totally fake. If you have used your card or have your card details on the website you are at risk. Be very smart as an influencer.



With that being said, summer is fast coming to an end and it feels bad. Winter isn't my season as you all know. I am happy with the way the sun shines bright on my window in the morning with its rays penetrating into the room. It is a fresh blessing directly from heaven filled with vitamin D.
Today, I am sharing a style post. I have worn this mustard yellow jumpsuit before but I decided to restyle it accessorizing with my vintage bag from Jessicabuurman and Birkenstocks from Czasnabuty.pl. Wristwatch Nicole Vienna.

  17. Thank you for sharing your experience. It is unfortunately a sad truth that there are brands out there that take advantage of good people. I am so wary and triple check all emails and delete ones that ask me for passwords. On a happier note, your outfit makes me happy. You look like a ray of sunshine in this yellow jumpsuit. Love how you styled it with the red sunnies.

  21. Yes Mel, you are right. I come across scammers and ignore their emails. One time babyonline dresses emailed me and I requested for a huge amount of money from them for a blog promotion so they stop disturbing my peace and guess what. They did.
    We all need to be extra cautious.
