    yeah - but then its how she supports herself isn't it? so perhaps there'll be less of the social butterfly stuff but she'll still be posting the product things so she can pay her rent

    I dont' begrudge any of them doing this sort of thing - its people like Tim who annoy me - belittling others for years for doing it and being all holier than thou ... then suddenly the about face and doing it himself!

    you can't live on air - especially in Sydney or Melbourne - and whilst it was hard to get my head around the whole making a living from social media posts etc lifestyle - good on them if they CAN make a living that way. I just always wonder what happens when the bubble bursts?

    Yeah right on crimmy. Has anyone ever actually bought anything these people are flogging or know anybody that has been "influenced" by Tully or any of them for that matter.

    I wonder do these companies get value for money?

    I don't follow her IG but from the pics posted here it seems every single one of them is promoting something even if it's the hotel she's staying at or the clothes she's wearing. They feel 100% fake to me.

    I stopped following all the BB lot a while back but still sometimes search them to find out what they are up to - or come here to cheat :)

    those of us with typical 9-5 jobs or mortgages can't really fathom people surviving on $ earned from posting on social media and the vagaries of it

    i have friends whose kids have uni degrees but choose to live on the proceeds of their blogs and instagram accounts - well maybe in truth not choose to - but as their degree turned out to not be the golden guarantee of a job as it was "in our day" (OMG I'm becoming one of those people who say "in our day" ... fkaduck!!!) they followed other interests, found they could earn $ from it and good on them. Beats lining up at Centrelink. Personally I'd feel very insecure and would be waiting for the other shoe to drop - but that's boring ole me :)

    I can't stand her - never could ... and she just goes from bad to worse ... a poster child for "DO NOT ..." if ever there was one ...

    Well that's how I feel about Tully. But good for her if she can make a living that way. The models in a KMart brochure can hold a more natural pose than her. She is really, really bad at it. And yet she succeeds. Go figure.

    • tee_smythYou want to know my reality? What goes on in my every day life? This. This is my reality. I would normally never share something so private, so personal. In fact I’ve sat here and changed my mind about posting it at least a hundred times. Since I gained a social media following overnight due to my appearance on Big Brother back in 2013, I’ve struggled with wanting to use my platform to raise awareness for @alzheimersaus and wanting to keep our family’s heartbreak private. I share photos of my mum from before she was sick, trying to protect her. Trying to ensure that the world remembers her as she was: beautiful and bright and bold. And not as she is today: frail and ravaged by the disease. Unable to talk. Unable to recognise us. Barely alive. Stuck in some cruel purgatory.
      Lately however, I’ve felt lost. Social media has been ruined for me. Tarnished. The fun, the frivolity has been taken out of what I do. My bubble has burst and I’m fucking angry.
      I’m heartbroken. This- Instagram- is not real life. My feed, all the parties & stupid selfies and pretty photos of my food, is not real life. It’s a curated version of events. It’s my highlights reel. It’s not what’s important to me. Yes, I have been lucky enough to create a living out of social media. I’ve been blessed with some amazing opportunities, travelled the world and met some new inspiring, life-long friends. But it’s not my every day reality.
      This is. My family and my friends and my loved ones. They are my reality. They are my priority. They are what’s important to me & I will always move heaven and earth to protect them.
      I’ve said before that I don’t like asking for favours, I don’t like asking for help. But I’m asking you to do this for me: if you’ve ever bought something because you’ve seen it on my Instagram...if you’ve ever eaten at a venue because you saw I had & it looked delicious, if you’ve ever spent a cent, because I convinced you too...because I influenced you to...then please, head to to the link in my bio & donate even just $10 to @alzheimersaus.
      It would mean the world to me. It would make my heart a little less heavy today. It would make the knot in my stomach a little less tight.

    Not a Tully fan, but that's raw.

    • dancinpennyJust holding onto my youth, I had a couple of glasses of red last night and I woke up like this, and if I lean back and pose like this I kinda have abs. So look just trying to be one of those Instagram models that takes a pic in their bedroom mirror and gets 20000 likes. You know how it is. Am I doing it right? I was meant to contour my face though yeah? #stuffed#it#up

    • iamlisaclarkToday I discovered Milford Sound, there really are no words to explain what I was lucky enough to see today. Mother Earth in her purest form... The highlights included running out of petrol 75kms from the nearest petrol station then paying $4 a litre for "emergency petrol", missing our original boat by 3min then raising the vending machine, having a few wines then offering my photography skills to pretty much everyone on the boat, seeing where the Tasman Sea meets the Sounds, then the boat pulling right under a waterfall while the spray rained down on us, yup every part of that was a highlight. You see, when you travel with your besties there really are no negatives, you're just making memories to piss yourself about when you're 80. I really couldn't have asked for a better day with the fam #milfordsound

    Full points to the kiwis who ripped off the other-other-Tully (even if they had no idea who she was) :D
