About Me: Alissa

Alissa Mags The wallflower secrets

Hi, I’m Alissa. Welcome to my little space on the internet.

This lifestyle/personal blog is just a fraction of my life where I post about beauty, my life, travels, books, fashion, inspiration and some other things I love.

I am a wallflower. I am an introvert. I have a quiet soul. Although I enjoy hanging out with some of my close friends and cousins, I also enjoy being alone with a good book to read or a movie to watch with a cup of coffee in my hand.

Just because you don’t say much doesn’t mean people don’t notice you. It’s actually the quiet ones who often draw the most attention. There’s this constant whirlwind of motion and sound all around, and then there’s the quiet one, the eye of the storm.

I am a lover of beauty. I always find beauty even in the most absurd things. Same goes with people. I always believe that there is goodness in everyone.

I find joy in the simplest of things like hearing the raindrops at night, the laughter of children, sunsets and sunrise, poems and photographs.

I love taking photographs. It’s amazing how you can able to capture a moment before it’s gone. I love reading books, writing proses and poetry, watching movies and listening to music.

I have so much more to tell about myself but let’s just put it this way: I am more than just a wallflower. I have love in my heart and flowers in my hair. ♡

    “I’m already 23 yet I’m stuck looking like a 16 year old.”

    I feel you! 😀

    Hi thewallflowersecrets.com,

    We represent a large number of clients who operate in dozens of online markets including fashion, shopping, tech, DIY, crafts, finance, travel, food, cars and more. We are currently looking for guest or sponsored post opportunities on their behalf. Is this something you would be interested in?

    If so, would you mind telling me how much you normally charge for a single blog post on your site?

    Usually, we would write the article on a topic related to both yours and our clients websites, at around 300-500 words long with one link to our clients website contained within. However, we’re more than happy if you would prefer to write the article yourself, as well as changing the word count to whatever suits you best.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards,

    Hope you are doing well!

    I wanted to get in touch with you again to see if you would be interested in working with Emediabuyers, in the form of a sponsored post.

    I assume you might have taken a look at my last email but couldn’t get enough time to think over it or respond back with your queries.

    So, I thought of following up on this since we have some great opportunities for collaboration.
    I would also like to mention that, this will be an ongoing process with a significant number of sponsored posts.

    If you have any queries, you can go through our FAQ page OR Simple revert back on this email

      Hi Sarah,
      Thank you for taking the time to contact me. I haven’t received any email from you or mediabuyers, maybe there was something wrong with my email. Anyway, I’m really interested in working with you. Depending on the topic and post, as long as it suits my blog, I’m okay with it. You can contact me at alissacarmelle@gmail.com. Thank you!
