I’ve been contemplating an introduction post for a while and finally decided I should, its only fair you all get to know the girl behind the blog.
So my name is Rochelle and I’m 22 years old and I live in Trinidad. And no I did not wake up one morning and decide I want to work in fashion and to start a blog. I’ve been obsessed with fashion for maybe the past 7 years, however when I first did I was around 14/15 and so I didn’t know there were sooooooooooooo many jobs in the industry and to be honest I was never interested in being a designer! I wanted to be the person designers go to when they need to make shit happen and I only realised this was a viable career till I was maybe 18/19. My current area of study is marketing management and so my head and heart is sending me into the realm of fashion marketing/ PR and I’m excited but soooooooooooooooo scared. Why? because the industry is large and so damn competitive but I rarely back down from a challenge.Many days I do think my dreams are out of reach but I’ve never known anything less than hard work and belief in my ability so on a daily I repeat “Dreams don’t work unless you do!” Blogging helps me move closer to this dream because I can explore so many things within this broad industry and allows me to further broaden my horizons, its a great way for me to express myself which I often have an issue doing but finding a way to get it out really makes me exploring my passion easier.
I guess I should tell about my personal style which is pretty laid back, I stick to neutrals mostly but occasionally you will see me in a bright ass colour (that’s when I can’t decide on which neutral I rather wear). I have a ring obsession which most people know, so if my outfits have nothing else just look at my hands there’s at least 2 rings. Like every girl I have a love/hate relationship with heels but still buy them every chance I get, and wear them any chance I get. In a way my style is still evolving because I’m a brokeass college student lol but that will soon change because I’m working on some thangssss and well I finish school in January 2016.
Really and truly I’m really a very simple human, I love wine, watching Parks and Rec, the beach and anything outdoors also PUPPIES.My favouritest movies ever are The Lion King and The Great Gatsby and i love indie/pop music and ofc SOCA!!!!! I love spending time alone thinking whats my next move because the world could get noisy and I’m not a fan of noise. I have few friends but they make sure I stay sane because my simple life still has a tendency to get weird sometimes. And that’s me in a nutshell.
