Making your dreams a reality is one of the most euphoric accomplishments a person can achieve, and I want that feeling. It does not happen overnight, there are a lot of sleepless nights and heartaches to create something that has been developing in your mind for a long time.
I knew that I wanted to create something where women could feel empowered. Currently, women are so competitive with each other that we tend to tear each other down... and for what reason? I wanted to create a space that women could feel empowered and feel like the beautiful goddesses that we are no matter your religion, creed, national origin, color, and ethnicity. Yes, I did not say race, because we are all one race and that is HUMAN.
In 2013, when I began posting videos on Youtube, I knew that I wanted to do something bigger. I wanted to build an all inclusive site that discussed beauty, style, life, love, career tips,and so forth. A place where women can call their internet sanctuary. It is wonderful to look fiercely beautiful, but it is also important to be on top of your game when it comes to your life and aspirations, that is why I made the site in this fashion. I wanted a site that would be very interactive as well. I remember times I wondered where someone got a certain brand of shoes or a dress they wore to an event. You can click on the items I mention on post, get directed to the item on the company website and purchase. Very simple and easy, and maybe a tad dangerous for a shop-a-holic.
The site took months to develop, and at times it was difficult. I currently have a full time corporate job, I will come home and diligently work on the site until early in the morning. I would run on 4 hours of sleep and chugging cups coffee with loads of sugar, but it is all worth it because I am creating something that I love. You are only on this earth for a short amount of time, all of the thoughts and dreams that would float in my head, I want to make them come true. I want to show myself and other women that you can do whatever you want in this world without compromising yourself. You can get where you need to be and not have to cheat, lie, steal, or sleep around to reach your goals. You have to push. I would love to one day travel the world and soak up knowledge of beauty and style, have my plans for my makeup line that I wrote years ago to be a tangible reality, design clothes, be a face for Cover Girl, and be on a magazine. Most importantly I hope that I can make someone's day or change a life.
As of right now, I am starting from the bottom, and can't wait to see where tomorrow will take me.
