Tell us more about you and your blog

I started my blog after I graduated college. I majored in Fashion Merchandising but I was having a hard time finding a job, so I started the blog to create an online portfolio of my growing involvement in the fashion industry and my love for styling.

What people don’t realize about blogging is…

It’s much more work than it looks!

What are 3 things you wish you knew about blogging before you started?

  1. How much the blogging industry was going to grow and change in such a short time.
  2. Invest in things that matter: Photography, website, and key wardrobe pieces, the rest will all fall into place with lots of hard work!
  3. Find a good support team and group of blog gals that have your back. It takes a lot of love and support from your friends!

What’s been your most memorable moment as a blogger?

I was featured on a billboard by Macy’s in Times Square!
