Scots fashion blogger Jilly Isabella has returned from a social media break after saying it was ‘doing her f***ing head in’.
The stunning red head is usually very active on Instagram, showing off her perfect outfits to her 74,600 followers but felt she had to take a step back this week as she was fed up comparing herself to other accounts.
She said: I had a wee break there from social media because it was doing my f***ing head in but I feel like I’m ready to come back in case anyone cares. Actually a few people messaged me like, ‘Are you okay?’ And I’m like -‘that’s lovely!’ I’m fine just taking a wee break. It was doing my nut in scrolling and comparing myself to people and stuff so I think it’s better if you’re feeling like that to just take yourself off the app. So yeah I’m back.”
Jilly then went on to thank her followers for the lovely messages about her footballer boyfriend Andy Halliday who left Rangers Football Club last week.
The 28-year-old played for his boyhood club for five years and before that, he was a Rangers season ticket holder for 16 years.
She said: “I just want to say thanks very much to everybody who messaged about Andy. It was extremely overwhelming and yeah we sat and went through all the messages and they were so bloody lovely. So yeah, we are the people, thanks very much!”
Last month, the 25-year-old was hailed ‘a vibe’ as she showed off her lockdown outfits which were teamed with a fashionable protective face mask.
Fellow Glasgow influencer Molly Mcfarlane added: “You make everything cool.”
And another fan said: “Still looking hot.”
Jilly has also used her platform to speak openly and honestly about how she is dealing with lockdown and shared this with her followers.
She said: “Saying someone can’t be sad because someone else may have it worse is like saying someone can’t be happy cos someone might have it better. Everyone has their own way of dealing with this situ so don’t feel guilty if some days you just can’t be bothered. I’m sure everyone is very grateful for the NHS, their health and their homes rn but it’s ok if you want to have a moody day.
“My tip is if you wake up feeling motivated then try do as much as poss so that next day you feel down then you won’t feel as guilty.”
