I had always been into photography and fashion so in college, on a random night, I decided to create a blog site and named it The Perfect Ensemble. At that time, it was very amateur and I wasn’t consistent with it as I was still in school and immediately started working after college. Fast forward several years later, I was encouraged by a friend to pick it back up but this time more on Instagram!
I am constantly learning from so many different influencers on the gram! There is so much style inspo out there! My current favorites - I love following Alicia Roddy (LissyRoddy), Julie Sarinana (SincerelyJules), Danielle Bernstein (WeWoreWhat), Lydia Millen (LydiaMillen) and Emmanuelle Koffi (Emmanuellek_)
Me too!! It’s about time :) Representation is so important and representation across the board is even more important. I think for the longest time, I felt as though I never really saw someone who looked like me in the fashion space but I am seeing that more and more now. I just hope it is something that brands continue to practice with each and every campaign. Naturally overtime, it will become a standard. Especially stateside, with America being a mixing pot of races & cultures, there is so much talent out there that deserves to be brought to the spotlight.
For me, taking time to myself despite the chaos is a number one priority. Whether it’s taking an extra 30 mins to do a face mask or use a skin device while watching TV or stepping out for some fresh air with my dog. Any little amount of quality time daily makes a huge difference!
I’ve been trying to read more or take on an activity that I had been putting off before! Currently I am relearning/brushing up on my French :)
Ahhh I love the Poppy At Home kits! Could do them daily! I’ve done 2 floral arrangement classes in the past so I learned a few little tricks like finding your “center/statement” flower/florals and building out from there or just finding a balance between colors in your arrangement. There are so many different ways to arrange flowers, can’t really go wrong!
I will be at home with family this year and celebrating safely! For us, in the past, we usually went to Friends’ houses or had a fun movie night for a new Bollywood release! It’s still important to dress up and see to the traditions right at home :)
