A Mom Influencer's Instagram vs. Reality Check: Year in Review & Lessons Learned

Magen Pastor shares the mom life behind her successful Instagram, exposing the lessons and takeaways of a tough and wonderful year.

Last year was one of the best and toughest years of my life. I moved states and didn't really tell anyone why, dealt with major family changes, all while maintaining this "perfect" image on my Instagram feed. I think it's so easy to get caught up in the Instagram wheel, but this year I'm pushing myself to take a hard look at how I portray my life.

This is a play by play of 2019, what you thought you saw on Instagram, versus reality and the lessons I learned after the fact.
