Hello! Thanks so much!! I created my blog, initially, as an online portfolio for my styling work. It then turned into a place where I can talk about all aspects of fashion, evolving into an online magazine, and lastly a personal style and beauty blog. A few tips for someone starting out, would be: research, work hard, create beautiful and well-thoughtout content, put your talents and efforts first, and don’t worry about what anyone else is doing. It is only a competition if you make it one.
Have any thoughts, questions or suggestions? Feel free to ask me anything!
Hello, and thank you! Turning my blog into a full-time gig didn’t happen overnight. I began accepting unpaid projects to build relationships with brands, and to grow my audience. From there, after developing a rapport, I began getting paid for partnerships. Through creating unique and beautiful works, brands now come to me, continuously, to collaborate. I currently work full-time, managing myself, and working with brands.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I so deeply appreciate them! I have always been unapologetically myself, no matter who is watching, but ESPECIALLY because I have an audience of followers and readers watching. I truly believe I am successful because of this. Also, most creative people in the fashion industry are tattooed. I was a stylist prior to becoming a blogger, so I come from a different side of the industry. Bloggers on the other hand, vary. Most are not tattooed at all, or JUST STARTING to get tattooed because it became “cool”. You know how that goes… As for the crystals and spirituality, that also stems from unapologetically being myself.
I am from New York, so there are tons of places to go shopping for crystals. I don’t look them up first. I just allow myself to choose the stone based on instinct, and I am always 100% correct for selecting each stone. I let my spirit chose for me. However, if you feel you need healing in certain areas, I would just Google your needs for crystals.
Hi Ricardo! I was getting rid of my storage, but that’s because I was finally taking everything out. I had lots of things in there from my last apartment, so when I moved to Bushick last week, I could finally take my things with me. I don’t think I will blog about it, since I have recently posted more about my move. I hope that helps. Thanks for asking. 🙂
I would love to chat more about this. Please shoot me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I walk EVERYWHERE! Since part of my job is to attend events, I prefer to walk if I can, versus taking cabs. This has helped me drop weight so much! I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in my twenties, and struggled with losing weight for a long time; dropping those last 10 pounds were tough. After meeting with a new doctor and changing my meds, I think that really helped with the weight loss. I also try to eat clean whenever I can, but don’t deprive myself sweets when I’m in the mood. It’s important to have a cheat day! I squeeze in yoga and workout at home sometimes, but it’s mostly cardio these days.
There’s a very long answer to that… But, mostly it has to do with creating content that’s beautiful and something people will engage with. I create my content with the idea that brands and other accounts will want to repost it. Be consistent. When you’re starting out, it’s important to have a routine your followers can look forward to. Have a style; use the same filter throughout, create a theme for yourself. Check out what your favorites accounts are doing, and appropriate that. Good luck with becoming a fashion blogger. You got this!
