What do I love about my career? Everything about it! I love taking pictures. I love traveling. I love sharing my thoughts and dreams. I don’t have a daily routine. Every day is different and I love it. When I’m in town, I usually start my day by drinking my coffee and answering emails while listening to music. Then, I workout and therest of the day flows depending on what I need to do—shoot for a vlog, attend events, run errands, etc. When traveling, it’s a totally different schedule.

I started as an intern for a fashion magazine when I was 15 years old. It then led me to creating my own clothing line, Stylebreak, back when I was in college. I was reading blogs like Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast and Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes—and that inspired me to have my own visual diary, too.

I wanted to make an impact in this world by making everyone feel more confident about themselves, whether it be about dressing your best, embracing your flaws and flaunting your assets, loving yourself more, being able to be yourself, etc. I felt this is what my audience wanted to hear and learn. I started blogging when I was 21 years old and to be honest, I didn’t expect it to be how it is now. I guess I got lucky!
