Hello Lovelies! My business/blogging journey has afforded me the opportunity to engage and build new relationships with other like minded women. Pentene Milner of Style Me Fancy is one of those queens. Not only is she an amazing Mom, but a wardrobe consultant, style blogger and my Melanin Movement Los Angeles sis. Just recently, I was tagged by Pentene to participate in a blog post, sharing revelations about me and giving my readers the opportunity to find out more about other amazing women in the blogosphere!
At the end of this post, I have tagged nominees to also complete this fun blog post. Stay with me now!
With that said, here goes!
MORE ABOUT ME:
I consider myself to be a free spirited, fun loving person. I’ve never really been a confrontational person, but when it comes to my children…look out. The Mama Bear in me is really real!
I love the journey I am on right now. Sometimes I think about how far along I could of been if I had begun my business and blogging journey years ago. But then I quickly realize that all happens as it is supposed to, and in God’s time. I’m just so happy that many of the things I yearned to do in the past are coming to fruition. God is good.
I’ve experienced some things in my life that could have literally driven other people crazy and ruined their lives. I’m working on the courage to share those things, as I’m sure my experiences might help others along in their lives. I believe that when the time is right, God will give me the green light to share. I’m just not ready yet, but I’m getting there!
MY THREE BEST BLOG POSTS:
QUESTIONS ASKED OF ME:
What was your dream job as a kid?
Funny that as a kid, I was a free spirit (still am, but life kicked in) and really didn’t give a whole lot of thought to what my dream job would be. I kinda thought I’d be living in a crib on the beach with a little girl and a Porsche. Strange huh?
How do you feel you’re using your blog to help change the world?
By letting other women know: 1) that it’s alright to be a babe at 40, 50, 60, 70… and to not let society dictate what your age means; 2) That women of a certain age have the power throw the stigma of “being an old stick in the mud” out the window! 3) To show others you can still be a refined woman, but also have a fun, youthful spirit; 4) That you can set the standard for the generations before you, as a woman who blazed of trail of style, confidence and empowerment for others.
Do you like to follow trends or do you prefer to set them? Why or why not?
I actually do both. There are lots of trends that I like, but I tend to mix them with timeless pieces. The mixture of both just fit my style personality, which I consider a paradox. Hence the name, Stylish Paradox.
What quote would you say speaks about your life right now?
“Life is too short to wake up with regrets, so, love the people who love you right, forgive the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it’d be easy, they just promised it’d be worth it.” – Dr. Seuss
