Why Blogging?

As a college student studying Fashion at Montclair State University that works in retail, I NEED to blog for the sake of documenting my talents and creative ideas. Everyday I discover something new about myself, what I wish to do in the future, and ways I need to take the next step. All too often I sit around and stare at my vision board, artwork, and past fashion illustrations figuring out a game plan for my career. Blogging gives me the drive and motivation to keep pursuing my dreams and not turn into a mindless workaholic that hates their job.

My beloved helped me to realize that I have the perfect amount of talents and creative skills to combine my art, fashion and outgoing personality for my blog content. Not that I have the passion to write, but its very fun to use this skill as a hobby, plus it comes effortlessly.

At age 8, I was sitting at her desk at my grandmother’s house, playing on her computer and visiting all sorts of website builders to create my own content. And so, I found my passion into doing the same.

Working is great to create experience and brush up on skills needed to survive in the real world, however, my long term career is to work completely for myself, running my own boutique. I wish to creating high fashion and unique designs while also showcasing them on runways, eCommerce, and including my artistic skills into the designs.

Art and Fashion is my passion, my dream and my life.
