First of all, I’m SO grateful for you all. I have cried numerous times just reading your reposts tagging IG and my account. You are amazing!! And you make me so grateful!!! I am thankful you are here and that we have a newsletter community. 

What happened?

My main instagram page @shalicenoel got suspended!! This is one of my top nightmares. Two days ago, I posted a follower’s review of some sandals that “looked like designer” and Instagram told me that my story violated community guidelines and took my whole account down.

At first I was confused, then tried again, then later freaked out. I appealed and went as far as I could until I knew I had to find a contact at Meta to ever recover my account. There are so many bots when trying to get a hold of someone to help, that it was clear that I needed a connection with an employee at meta.

Thankfully, I’m working with a couple key people to get it back up and running. It is nothing short of heartbreaking as I it took me 10 years to build my account following of 186,000. I miss the community I created in my DM’s. I miss our chats!

Meanwhile, if you have a contact at meta, email: mgmt@shalicenoel.com. I’m thankful to have my @shopshalicenoel account where I can stay up to date. Follow me on @shopshalicenoel for updates and stories. I appreciate your support! Guess what? We have a HUGE sale and a HUGE announcement coming up.  No, I’m not pregnant. Can you guess what it is?

To celebrate my 3-year blog anniversary, I’m giving away what I would want to receive: $100 to spend at Nordstrom. It also happens to be the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this week. Get excited. It’s seriously so good and I usually score some great essentials that carry me through to fall. 

I started shalicenoel.com after I had my 4th child and needed an outlet. Hooray for hobbies that turn into legit jobs! I painstakingly created flatlay #ootd’s on our wood floor, took 100 shoe seflies #fromwhereistand and chased the light before I went in to make dinner. I use the word ‘painstakingly’ because I was doing the flatlays between replenishing my little people’s water cups, wiping bottoms, answering the door, and cleaning up the baby powder before someone slipped in it. To say it’s been a roller coaster is an understatement. So many highs, like awesome partnerships with Burberry and Nordstrom, and lows – oh, I have a sick kid AND a deadline. Hmm, how’s this going to look? I’ve learned by trial and error what works and what doesn’t, but I always seem to be reevaluating weekly. I have days that I question what I do, and I think any working mom will empathize. But at the end of the day it’s about relationships and you only do what you can do. We’re only human. I’m thankful to my omnipotent God, my supportive husband, patient children and good coffee.

To thank YOU, for following along, leave a comment below and I’ll choose a random person below to give them the $100 Nordstrom giftcard. Not sponsored. Winner announced Wednesday 7/13.

Good luck!
