O-M-G! … The First is real!

O-M-G! … The First is real!

WOW! My first blog post.

I don’t know about you all, but I’m super HYPED!
It took me long enough to launch my site, but now its finally L. I. V. E., Up and running! I am extremely proud of myself for overcoming my fears and finally taking that BIG STEP to launch.

In a nutshell, IAmMyOwnSTYLE has been my personal passionate label for years and I envision it bigger than just a name for my social platforms. IAmMyOwnSTYLE is a representation of me, my style, and the way I live my life, which is why I always say “It’s More than just fashion, its LifeSTYLE”. YOU too can be your own style and have IAmMyOwnSTYLE be a representation of you and your individuality.

“I don’t ever want to be labelled as just a blogger… I am multi-faceted and cannot be put in a box”

I’m just here to express myself through my many talents, adventures, sense of style and way of life, in hopes to inspire others. Hence, why I decided to launch my site… FINALLY (lol). It took me about 2 years to finally, just do it!. I am super nervous and excited to embark on this new journey and this is only the beginning.

Stay tuned and check in for the hottest & latest styled trends, fun creative events, “the dynamic duo”- #SheandI featuring my daughter Chloè, also known as SheIsHerOwnStyle (Follow her on instagram), Vlogs from my up and coming Youtube Channel, Travels, Brand Merchandise and Much, much more.

AND just to add a little Hot Sauce (which I carry in my bag) #swag  to my first post, are photos from my latest shoot. Thread details are listed below.IMG_9005IMG_9008IMG_9002IMG_8996

    I am inspired. And, I am extremely proud of you as a friend, colleague and like 2nd daughter. You openness and willingness to TRY is important. Risk takers do not always get the outcome they expect but just by taking the risk they are successful. Your pics are fab, YOUR OWNSTYLE is fab. Love, Love, Love
