It has never been easier to “fake it till you make it” thanks to the power of social media. Today anyone can look rich on Instagram without having to be rich!
In my online finishing school, I talk a lot about personal branding and image development. Whether you like the idea or not, it’s actually what makes someone successful in the high-society.
Once you have full control over how people perceive you, you can plant any seeds you want in people’s heads. The seeds you plant depends all on the goals that you have! What are your goals? Do you need to raise your level of affluence to be aligned with your goals?
In some cases, the answer is yes. Which is where working with your personal brand comes into play. There are many ways how one can fine-tune their image. Today I want to give you a check-list of ways how YOU can fake it till you make it on Instagram (with a dose of humor)!
The Private Jet
A shot with you inside or outside – it doesn’t matter! You with a jet will leave the impression you’re playing with the big boys.
You don’t show off when you’re elbowing with Plain Janes inside Zara. You show off when you’re sipping champagne inside a designer boutique!
100+ Roses (The competition of “Who got the most?”)
A luxury girl shows off her bouquet when it’s minimum 100 roses (anything else and your guy is a cheapo). The ideal is 500-1000 roses, covering a whole room. Or a bathtub.
Youtubers started this trend. Now every show-off Instagirl is taking over when she’s “unboxing” her latest purchases. (We all know why she’s doing it)
Travel to Mykonos
You’re no JetsetBabe if you’ve never been to Mykonos.
Travel to Monaco
You’re definitely no JetsetBabe if you’ve never been to Monaco.
On a yacht (preferably mega-yacht)
It doesn’t matter who’s yacht it is. As long as you’re there in a bikini, looking fabulous and taking photos – you’ve accomplished one very important jet-setting goal!
First class Travel
Don’t let me get started on the images from first class (preferably Emirates or other middle eastern airlines). Make everyone jealous at home with the fact that you’re traveling in style and they’re “rubbing shoulders” in coach!
No “Sad cupcake with a candle”- photos on your birthday, please! Show how special and popular you are by posting (and posing) with all the love you get from your man, family & friends. We want to see rooms filled with flowers, balloons, teddy bears and other attributes you will only use for this self-validating Kodak moment.
Have you ever heard the expression “more is more”? That’s your new mantra when you’re dining with Instagram! It doesn’t matter whether you eat any that stuff you pose with (better you don’t!). The point is that you model your breakfast and show the world how perfect it is. Perfect life means a perfect breakfast!
Shopping on Rodeo Drive
Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman set the trend for us back in the days. Now, every JetsetBabe has to:
1. Visit L.A
2. Take the obligatory photo strolling on Rodeo Drive.
Skiing in Courchevel
Whether you know how to ski or not, your new affluent-self has to be seen in the mountains during the winter season! And not to whatever mountains: Preferably Courchevel, Gstaad or St Moritz. So pack your moon boots and your fist pump; The after-ski is waiting for you!
No Toyota Prius when JetsetBabe is in town! Make sure to arrange a photo shoot with all the fancy vehicles where you’ve been a passenger.
Please note: No taking pictures next to random luxury cars on the streets (It’s sooo obvious when people do this!) We need your limbs inside the vehicle to believe!
Once you’ve made it inside one of these vehicles, maybe a Bentley or a Rolls. Make sure you document the life out of it! Tilt your head strategically so the logo can be seen behind you. And if you have any matching bling “spontaneously” place your finger where it can be seen.
If you can’t make it to Rodeo Drive, make it to any Chanel boutique where people will envy the fact that you burn 4k minimum on handbags. At least if you pose with the correct bags.
Show off those red soles baby! Spice it up by including Hèrmes on a corner. And some Van Cleef jewelry. Like this you have the entire JetsetBabe starter pack covered!
Gondola ride in Venice
Once you get driven around by some tired Italian in a gondola in Venice, you know it’s time to get that gondola money’s worth! Snap like there is no tomorrow! Show those bored people at home what they’re missing!
You and the Eiffel Tower
In case nobody ever seen the Eiffel tower, make sure you’ll be the first person ever showcasing it to them!
With the Jet-Set Dog
Since dogs are not only humans best friend, but also a trendy fashion accessory. Glamorous JetsetBabes know it’s a must-have and a luxurious extension of themselves.
Now you have the best excuse to innocently undress for the gram and introduce your boobies to your followers.
Riding a heli
Private jet = Check! Helicopter = Check! I’m a baller = Check!
Your relationship with Patek Philippe
“What’s the time?” Sad no one ever when taking a picture and uploading the time to Instagram.
Girl… Seriously… No Maldives? = No JetsetBabe. It’s that simple.
