Welcome to my blog! I wanted my first post to be about myself so you can learn more about me and why I started this blog. First, I’ve been wanting to blog for a long time now but I was always hesitant. Most of the time I’d worry about not having time to dedicate to the blog, and whether I have anything interesting to say. There were always reasons why I felt like I can’t start blogging now.
In the last couple of months, several people have been encouraging me to start blogging and showing my outfits. I started with Instagram, and I’ve been overwhelmed with the positive response. The main reason why I’m starting this blog is to show women that you can wear hijab, dress modestly, and still be stylish. It saddens me when women think they can’t be fashionable just because they wear hijab. I wish to inspire these women to dress up and enjoy fashion the way I do.
I have been in love with fashion since I can remember. As a child, I loved dressing up for school and celebrations. I have memories of trying on my mom’s skirts as dresses, and even wearing an off-the-shoulder traditional Mexican dress to kindergarten. I also loved dressing up for Halloween or any costume party and thoroughly thought about my outfit. One Halloween I dressed as a movie star and loved the red dress that my mom sewed me. Needless to say, dressing up is something I love to do.
I also want to share my other interests with everyone. I personally love reading about people’s experiences and product reviews, and I’d love to do the same. I look forward to reviewing beauty products and even restaurants. I’m not a make-up guru, but I love and appreciate make-up. In addition to that, I have been taking good care of my skin in the last few years and appreciate good beauty regimens. As most people, I love food and enjoy eating a good meal – especially a decadent dessert. I will be posting recipes and restaurant reviews. I will also share how I take care of my health in terms of diet and exercise.
I hope that you enjoy reading my blog – and I look forward to sharing my interests with you!
