Happy Weekend Everyone!
I'm starting something new this month. This post will be of all the links, websites and videos I enjoyed during the month of February. Wow, this month has gone by so fast! from Valentines Day, President's Day to celebrating Black history month, the Grammys and the Oscars it has been a busy 28 days. I'm so proud of myself, I wrote a Valentine's Day article on the DC based Facon Online Magazine that shows you different ways to celebrate love when you're single.
I celebrated Black History month with famous quotes from influential Black icons on my Instagram. I really like quotes they put life into perspective and help me enjoy and cherish moment with all my heart. My favorite quote has to be the one Maya Angelou said, see it here. As soon saw this quote I had to repost from one of my new favorite Instagram accounts @Sheinthemaking. I also wrote about my favorite Black Style Icons that inspire me to always upgrade my creativity and style to the next level.
I have also been so inspired and motivated by the articles on The Well blog. Each blog post pushes me to be a better blogger and content creator! Currently I'm reading this, How to Plan and Organize Your Social Media Posts which helps me both in my own social media pages for StyledByKesha Blog and PicoVela pages that I manage. Next month I would also like to join this Monthly Post LinkUp with BBAR on The Well blog. See the past two posts here and here. It will definitely cool to join a fabuolus blogger community for March.
Social Media is a constantly growing and changing field and I have been really enjoying Gary Vaynerchuk's #AskGaryVee show on his Youtube channel where he answers all business and social media questions from his followers on Instagram and Twitter accounts. I also finally got his latest book, JAB, JAB, JAB, Right Hook and it teaches you everything you need to know and how to Crush It on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube, any social media platform. I hope to apply this to being a better social media manager.
Oh and how can forget the snow,more snow and snow again and the extremely low temperatures this month with what felt like the Polar Vortex 2.0. It was freezing! I was so excited to play in the snow last week that I made my sister take photos while playing in it. Then shortly after those pics my hands were frozen and ran right back into the house! LOL Check out all the pictures and outfits with Snow Day!
To get through the coldest days this month, I shared three ways to wear a winter scarf and my favorite cold weather outfits from Winter's past. These were outfit inspirations for Winter.
I also posted my very first outfit post of the year featuring my Tailormade skirt I wore for my graduation a few years back, this post is a sneak peek into how I want StyledByKesha to change and evolve to. Cant wait for many more creative outfit posts with an African twist. You can also check out the signature African Arm Candy that i wear almost everyday and defines my personal style in the year 2015!
Given the new direction my blog is taking I also introduced my favorite African Fashion Bloggers. I definitely wanted to expand it to a fashion and life interview series, so we can all learn more about African culture from unique perspectives.
Well that's all for February! I hope I can keep this up for the year. It will be a great way to keep up with all my monthly favorites. Also check back here later this week for my monthly favorites on my YouTube Channel.
Thank you for Reading. Until next time!
