Hello beautiful and welcome to my very first blog. It’s taken me a really long time to get here, and I’m thrilled that I have finally arrived. I’ve always wanted to do this you know; to show the world my fun, fearless, fabulous, fashionable side, but frankly lacked the courage to do so. I’ve had a steady supply of reasons why I couldn’t dare contemplate it. I’ve second guessed myself a lot, compared myself to others a lot, [by the way I don’t recommend this to anyone, it’s a waste of time] and concluded that there is nothing so special about me that would inspire anyone. Besides, I really didn’t want to be held accountable to anyone for my fashion choices, especially the fails, not to talk of all the writing involved. Where in the world was I going to find something to write about 3 to 5 times a week, and what if I used the wrong, conjunctions, pronouns, proverbs, or adjectives, what if I mixed my tenses, what would people think of me?! I didn’t want to open myself up to scrutiny and criticism so I played it safe and sat in the sidelines. l really was my own worst critic.
I’ve always loved fashion and I’ve always had an incredible sense of style. I’ve also loved to write, back when I used to devour books [sadly I don’t anymore, too many distractions, Bravo Network to be exact] I had a really active imagination and I wrote a lot of short stories. However, somehow in the course of doing life I lost my passion for fashion and my writing chops, and is taken me quite a while to recall them. My story is one of fab to frump and back to fab, praise Jesus! I hate frump, hated every moment I was in frumpville, it doesn’t just affect your outward appearance it attacks your mind too. If you’re there right now, I hope I can help you relocate yourself.
The truth is that I’ve secretly fantasized about writing books and having my own fashion line. I’ve often visualized myself on QVC just selling out of every last piece of my gorgeous yet totally affordable fashion line. Why QVC, I don’t know, maybe because when I’m lying awake at 3am and sleep is nowhere in sight, QVC is an awesome companion, the presenters can sell anything to anyone, they make everything look so appealing. One of these days… A girl can only dream.
I’m starting my fashion an style blog because I know now, despite all my wrong believing that I do have a lot to offer and contribute and even though there are already thousands of bloggers out there there’s still room for me to make my mark. So here we are, by God’s grace I have a long road ahead of me and I am extremely excited at the thought of what lies ahead. I finally came to the conclusion that greatness is waiting for me to take the first step, so here I go!
