Hello Friends, Happy Tuesday,
Today I stand with my engagement ring at the altar of my greatest desires and dreams and make a promise that I will take you seriously, I will only publish my very best content, my best ideas, I will take the time to plan my styling projects and execute. I will also research, creatively challenge myself to the next level and no matter what I will push through when I don't feel like it; because it is important to me that I see you through and ultimately live the dream that you have set for me. I want to see what my life could be when I commit 110% to you. It is my purpose to see my greatest desires and dreams come true.
Today, I'm saying I DO TO YOU MY DREAM FROM THIS DAY until FOREVER.
When I started this blog, It was a fashion portfolio of my personal style, fashion education and knowledge to introduce me to the fashion industry. As the blogging scene has changed and I have grown into a life + style blogger I now want the blog to reflect my unique view on fashion and life through my African Heritage and culture and creating a business that speaks to these sentiments.
WHAT IS THE DREAM?
My ultimate dream is to have a creative styling/marketing studio that is focused on African inspired design in fashion, accessories, jewelry, home furniture and lifestyle . Be the one-stop destination for hottest African creative + Lifestyle brands in the United States. I also want to blog and travel throughout the African continent for latest fashion weeks choose curated collections specifically the American market while creating cultural content about each African nation. The long term goal is to have an African culture, clothes and coffee shop in the Washington DC area.
WHAT ARE THE STEPS YOU ARE TAKING TO MARRY THE DREAM?
The steps I'm taking to marry my dream is to always be networking, connecting with other style influencers and educating myself through webinars, You tube tutorials and conferences and local blogger events. I work continuously to become a better blogger my staying true to my blog mission and post on a consistent three to five times a week. I also commit to creating a social media strategy that helps me promote my blog, and personal brand through the internet. I also will create a blog schedule and a system that works best for me and my lifestyle.
I will also do plan to start with my favorite local African spots (Restaurants, shops, boutiques, events, festivals, etc... ) in the Washington DC metro area. I will write reviews on the best restaurants, books and many more. For example, Read these posts: 4 African Stories You Must Read, African Film Festival, and The Granta Book of the African Short Story I realize that I have to use what I have and do what I can do to get to that dream. Robin Roberts said this perfectly, "Dream Big but focus small on the day to day things that get you to your goal." Its the daily everyday goals that lead to the dream and that's what I intend to do.
