It’s officially been 2 years since the inception of TrendyCurvy.com and boy how things have changed. Time has flown by and there have been many highs and even some lows along the way. I wouldn’t change this journey for anything in the world though. It has taught me so many things about myself and my abilities that are simply immeasurable.
You may or may not know but I was extremely nervous and scared to become a fashion blogger. I felt that making such a declaration was not fitting for me and I was very fearful of how I would be perceived by taking such a leap. I put it off for quite some time, always saying that I was going to start it next week or next month and time was just passing me by. Thank God for great family, a supportive boyfriend and amazing friends because with their unwavering encouragement, TrendyCurvy was birthed and I haven’t looked back since. Fast forward 2 years, I have been featured by publications that I could have never dreamed of being associated with such as Glamour Magazine, Essence and Vogue Italia. I freaking met Oprah! I got my very first print feature in People StyleWatch magazine. And to think that none of these things would have been if I had gotten in my own way. So the word of the day is “blessed”. I’m blessed to be able to do this and to be an inspiration to women all over the world. I’m blessed for the journey that I have had so far and I’m blessed for the journey ahead. THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your love and support. TrendyCurvy would not be ANYTHING without you.
Special thank you to my photographer and love, the infamous Steve Suavemente. It’s not easy dealing with me week after week y’all but somehow he does it. He is as much dedicated to this blog as I am and he is truly my #1 fan. I would not be able to showcase my looks without his talent and artistic vision so thank you boo!
