First I would like to start this by thanking you for even coming to my site to read this post. I wanted to sit down and not only thank you for your loyalty to Style Crave this year but your positive feedback and sending so much love my way, wether it be in person at an event, a speaking engagement, in my Instagram comments or my DM’s. None of your words are ever taken for granted. I created this blog to create a community of open minded people who were interested in learning about style and beauty regardless of age, gender, orientation and race. I have always aimed to celebrate diversity on this site and believe I have done so consistently over the years. I have seen tremendous growth this year and with that comes a lot of amazing opportunities with brands I adore and respect, as well as naysayers.
When I agree to work on a partnership of any level with a brand or organization I always take you into consideration and if it would make sense for our community as well as publicly disclose that information. Over the years I have been given many opportunities to do features on casinos, ski resorts and even television opportunities but they just didn’t feel right for us. I grew up in small town Oklahoma with a single mother just trying to get by who taught me the fundamentals of working hard and staying kind through it all. My mothers mantra has become a foundation that I live my life by day to day in every project that Im a part of. I want you to know that I will never do a project or event “Just for a paycheck”. I have and will always route for a brand who is doing the right thing to grow their platform without undermining others.
I have such a passion for creating valuable, positive and inspiring content not only of you to enjoy but for my brand partners to know they can trust in me when considering me for a project. Despite having anonymous people go behind my back and slander my name for their own personal opportunity I will always push through the sabotage and let my truth shine through. My mother always told me that with every struggle God is preparing me for something greater and I do believe that is the case. I will continue to be persistent and consistent in my dream that this platform can be one day and I thank you for being a part of this positive journey. You have helped me push through even when you didn’t know you have.
I’m looking forward to an awesome new year of fun content and expanding this platform into a Youtube channel where you will see me every week walking you through some awesome skin care and grooming that I love! If you ever need anything from me please don’t hesitate to ask.
All the best,
