The number 1 complaint I get on Instagram about the LIVES (other than not being able to answer all questions) is that not everybody is able to join. So then I post the saved ones in stories; but they’re only there for 24 hours after which I start getting DMs asking questions that were answered in the LIVE. I think of it like a hamster wheel.

So I came to 1 conclusion!

I have to share some of the more specific LIVES, in posts. Like the ones happening this week, about skincare.
Unfortunately IG couldn’t “save” this specific one (and why would it, I needed the extra work load 🤪) so I had to record the screen as I replay it from stories. TBH that ended up being much better, because even though the comments look all out of order and at some point they no longer even load, at least we can see some of that activity and the beautiful faces of the people behind it. If the video would have been saved directly, none of that activity would be visible. So it’s all good!

Yesterday’s LIVE (Monday 4/6/20) is below.

The goal was to show you my morning skincare routine & answer some questions along the way. With Instagram giving LIVES a hard stop at 1 hour, I had to rush at the end and at one point I had to just show you which products I was planning on using and in what order, but not be able to demo. Just for the last few steps of the routine though, not awfully bad.

I’m cringing 😬…

…at how all over the place I was. It was a little hard to showcase, explain & follow a process, while reading comments and engaging in answers, and trying to make the responses as complete as possible. But I will work on this and promise to get better and far more efficient with my answers. Another thing – I edited this down, because an hour long video I thought would be a little too long.

While we’re in quarantine, you can count on my LIVES almost daily. They were daily actually for the first 3 weeks, but we’ll be here for a while and doing custom content daily, working on bringing guests, etc. took a toll on me after 3 weeks and I ended up feeling really exhausted so I’ll be taking 1 or 2 days off here and there.
