Please introduce yourself to the readers:Charnoglasses

Char Reynolds, NYC (by way of Louisiana)

Tell us about your blog; Evolution of a Fat Fashionista
Evolution of a Fat Fashionista is a fashion, body image, and beauty blog. It’s pretty much an extension of my personality: a mix of nail polish, pretty shoes, and learning how to love the skin I’m in.
 
Why did you begin blogging?
 I am getting back into the blogging game after taking a break from my other (now closed) blog, Hyde and Seek. There, I focused more on just body image issues and fat acceptance. With Evolution of a Fat Fashionista, I am adding in the fashion and makeup side to my activism, because I am always evolving (pun intended!) and learning that I can be beautiful, fat, and fashionable and these don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
Charwhitetop
What motivates you to dedicate time to blogging?
I have to have an outlet. Writing has been a way to keep myself sane and focused,and I love being able to either uplift someone or make them laugh with my antics. It’s just been an overall amazing way for me to connect with people, and I love it!
In one year, what do you hope manifests from your blogging?
 In one year, I hope to continue to grow my readership and build up my YouTube channel I have connected to the blog.
Name two of your favorite bloggers you follow:Charwglasses
On the fashion side, I’m a huge fan of Gabi of Gabifresh.com. Reading her blog has pushed me to attempt different trends I wouldn’t have tried before. On the beauty side, I love vlogger Missy Lynn (www.youtube.com/user/start2finishmua), she has such wonderful, easy tutorials.
What legacy do you want to leave behind for others to know about you?
I want people to know…that I was a person. A perfectly flawed person who lived her life learning to love all of herself, and (hopefully) taught others to love themselves too. As they are, because they’re enough. You can wear and eat what you love and love yourself all at once.
Upcoming projects or events:
 Upcoming projects: I love to cook and I am writing a cookbook. I’m going to add some recipes to the blog as part of a new feature starting in September. Look for the cookbook to be out at the beginning of next year!
Make sure to keep up with Char via social media to get heaping eye candy on her fabulous meals and recipe ideas. And don’t forget to stop by her blog and subscribe!  Have a Happy Flyy Girl Feature Friday.

Flyy Girl Feature Friday: Ashley Clayton

Welcome back to another fabulous edition of Flyy Girl Feature Friday!

While this blog has tons of fashion sense and advice, it also doesn’t turn a blind eye to the topics of discussion which swirl around us everyday. I like a woman who sets out to accomplish her goals, but also knows it is her duty to share her space as a place for communication and understanding.

Because at the end of the day, yes, blogging can be a selfish job, but it can also be a way to enlighten others and make them aware of what is happening beyond their community and to help give them some clarity with various issues.

So cheers to this Brown Blogger, for her multi-faceted topics and for allowing her readers to step inside her world beyond the fashion

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Ms. Ashley Clayton

Please introduce yourself to the readers.AshleyClayton2

Ashley Clayton, Fresno CA

Tell us about your blog, Twe1ve2

Twe1ve2 is a bit of a lifestyle blog and a bit of personal memoir with a splash of my opinions on various topics.

Why did you begin blogging?

When I graduated from college in 2014, I decided that I wanted to go into social media marketing or Public Relations. After applying to countless positions, I was told by a family friend that I did not have a strong online presence. She mentioned to me that this was probably the reason I wasn’t being hired. So I created Twe1ve2 hoping that my blog would help me secure a career in my profession of choice.

What motivates you to dedicate time to blogging?

My friends are my biggest motivators. Their constantly asking me when is my next blog post or what topic I’m looking into writing about. Without all of their support I probably would have given up a long time ago. I tried to blog before and didn’t have the support that I do now. So all of my success in the blogosphere is attributed to them.

AshleyClaytonblog2

In one year, what do you hope manifests from your blogging?

A year is a long time…. but I hope to secure a stable following. I also would like to see my blog grow in followers and engagement. However; I hope my blog inspires someone. That someone, somewhere reads a post or finds one of my related social media accounts and is inspired.

Name two of your favorite bloggers you follow.

I happen to know both of my favorite bloggers personally so it’s really exciting that I get to share them with you.

Michael Stover is not only one of the closest people to me but he’s an amazing hip hop blogger that writes for various sites across the internet.

The other happens to be a friend of mine from college, Janae Bryson of Janae Sais Quoi. She writes a fashion/lifestyle blog that I definitely stay up to date with.

What legacy do you want to leave behind for others to know about you?AshleyClaytonblog

I want people to know that words aren’t just words. When I was in college I used to call a ton of people my “best friend” except the people who were really my “best friend”. My overuse of the word caused it to have less power than many people would allow it to have. I want people to feel that way about all words. As a writer I understand that there is power in language, vocabulary, and how you choose to use the two together.

Upcoming projects or events

I have a lot of upcoming projects towards the end of the summer. I plan on making the move to a self-hosted website. So I’ll be over at Twe1ve2.com which is really exciting for me. I also plan on reviewing a couple of music festival and working with a few brands on blog posts once I make the switch.

The biggest out of all of my projects though is the hosting switch. Once I make the switch I plan on having a giveaway to celebrate it. I won’t say what the prizes are but I happen to be a big fan of Chipotle.

Flyy Girl Feature Friday: Britteny McZeal

Honey, it is finally Flyy Girl Feature Friday, and I for one am glad about it!

Sometimes fashion blogs can seem to mimmick each other and there seems not to be one that quite suites my oh so short attention span, and then I stumbled upon a blog

that unapologetically gives commentary to the world of fashion, with a fun and sopho-edge-chic feel.

Candidly Creole is like opening your favorite fashion magazine and actually enjoy reading the stories

 that accompany each picture.

Ladies and Gentlemen you are in for a great new discovery,

                                              Miss Britteny McZeal.BrittanyMcZeal

Please introduce your to the readers.

My name is Brittney from Lafayette, Louisiana.

Tell a little about your blog, Candidly Creole:

My blog, Candidly Creole, is  a collection of my candid thoughts on topics like fashion, pop culture, music, books, and makeup.  Basically, anything I’m really feeling at the moment  – a song, an outfit idea, a face product – gets blogged about.

Why did you begin blogging?

One reason why I began blogging is because I like to create things. I love making graphics and taking pictures, and that was one of the primary reasons why I started to blog.

CandidlyCreoleblog

What motivates you to dedicate time to blogging?
I originally began blogging as a way to pass the time, but over the year it has grown to be something I really enjoy doing. This is probably my 4th blog to date and it’s been the only one that I’ve been the most consistent with. Sometimes, however, I do find a little difficult for me to stick with a schedule or think of a good blog post. But in the end, I just blog about what I want to blog about and not what I think I should blog about.

In one year, what do you hope manifests from your blogging?
In one year, I hope to build more connections and communication with other bloggers and creatives across the internet.

Name two of your favorite bloggers you follow.CandidlyCreole1

Two of my favorite bloggers are Christina from ProFresh Style and Carmen from She Recycles Fashion because they are super stylish.

What legacy do you want to leave behind for others to know about you?

I’ve never really thought about this before, but I want others to know that I am a passionate and hardworking individual.

Upcoming projects or events?

I can’t really think of any upcoming events or projects, but if I do I will let you know!

Be sure to follow Britteny on WordPress and stay in the know on what’s hot and fun on Candidly Creole!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Ms. Andrea “Drea” C.NaturalleDreatree

Welcome! Please introduce yourself to the readers:

Andrea C., New Jersey

Tell us a little about your blog, Naturalle Drea.

My outlet for talking about my love of natural hair, makeup, fashion, life and anything beauty related.

Why did you begin blogging?

The idea just came to me one day when I was at home on my day off. I wanted to do something that was me, outside of being mommy, girlfriend, friend and daughter. I wanted an outlet where I could talk about my natural hair journey, products that I love so much and about life. I knew blogging would give me that outlet I wanted and be able to connect with those that share the same passion as I do.
 What motivates you to dedicate time to blogging?
I want to be a successful blogger and I’ve learned along the way that you have to really put in the time, dedication and work to make it successful. Nothing comes easy and you have to work for it. I am driven by success. Plus I have fallen so much in love with blogging., that if I could, I would blog everyday. 
NaturalleDreablog
In one year, what do you hope manifests from your blogging?
I hope to continue to grow my readers and followers. I also want to put out better content and just be an overall better blogger than the year before.

That I put 100% and then some into everything that I do, loved hard and was about my family and friends, you could always count on me to be there anytime especially for a good laugh and just an overall amazing and outgoing person.
Upcoming projects or events?
I have some highly requested hair and makeup tutorials in the works. 
 The proof is in the writing! Naturalle Drea is definitely a site we will be bookmarking for natural hair care and fashion tips, we know you will do the same too. Support is reciprocity. It always comes back to you.

Flyy Girl Friday Feature: Delfine The Coco Gawdess

Fashion and beauty are probably the two most popular topics in the world of blogging.

And luckily for us ladies, there is no shortage of bloggers to choose from to get your daily dosage of  style, beauty and hair.

However, this next Brown Girl Blogger brings a nice spin on the reporting

of fashion and beauty, by adding some life experiences in the mix as well.

Here to serve us with fun, fashion and fierceness,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

                                                                 Miss Coco Gawdess, Delfine. TheCocoGawdessSign

 

Please introduce yourself to the readers:

My name is Delfine, but on the blog I go by The Coco Gawdess or sometimes Coco. I’m a city girl, born and raised in Queens, New York.

Tell us about your blog, The Coco Gawdess.

My blog, The Coco Gawdess, is a personal style blog. It was created to be a movement in celebration of beauty as a platform; where through fashion, beauty and life experiences, women could share in the reverence of womanhood. The link is www.thecocogawdess.com.

TheCocoGawdessBlog

Why did you begin blogging?

To be quite honest, The Coco Gawdess isn’t my first blog. It’s more like my 6th or 7th. I have always loved writing, so much that one of my majors in college was Journalism. Blogging allowed me to write in a space where I had complete control over my work. I had total sovereignty over how much time I spent on the blog, what I wrote about and the design. It was a writer’s heaven.

I started The Coco Gawdess to fulfill my own needs, needs I believed other girls shared. There wasn’t anyone who looked, spoke, dressed or wrote like me. I have always been told that I have great style and that I’m a great public speaker and writer, but I wanted my blog to be so much more than a feed of pictures of myself in impractical clothing in unrealistic places or situations. I wanted The Coco Gawdess to be a resource for all girls, but especially those of a darker complexion– “chocolate girls.” I wanted to create a place where real women could get ideas about fashion and life, regardless of socioeconomic status, age, weight, skin color, etc. A place where sexy is redefined. A place where intellect and fashion meet in the form of self-love. So much of the way we dress, walk and talk has to do with the way we feel about ourselves. We can’t change the skin color, height or size that we were born, but we can package ourselves the way we want. As women, we are sexy, sweet, bitter in our rawest form, strong, deep, we’re an aphrodisiac, we come in different flavors and colors….we are chocolate. We are all made of chocolate, that’s what connects us. Who we are and what we look like starts on the inside and manifests on the outside. It’s about feeling and looking good, and sharing that love the way chocolate is meant to be shared. Look good, feel good; feel good, look better– that’s what The Coco Gawdess is about.

What motivates you to dedicate time to blogging?

The response I get is one of my biggest motivators. Whether it’s on the blog, on my Youtube channel, or on Instagram, the response of girls (and women!) that identify with my sense of style, sense of humor, background or interests is beyond rewarding. Another motivator is the release. Blogging is freeing, therapeutic almost. It’s completely separate from my career and from my day-to-day life. It also allows me to express my creative side and challenges me to come up with new ideas, new strategies and to learn new software and new programs.

TheCocoGawdessYoutubeChannel

In one year, what do you hope manifests from your blogging?

I have big plans for The Coco Gawdess for the next 12 months. In a nutshell, I hope to turn The Coco Gawdess into exactly what it was meant to be…a movement. I hope every girl who reads a blog post, sees an Instagram picture or caption or watches a Youtube video feels like she is made of Godiva. I want every girl to recognize the Coco Gawdess in her.

Name two of your favorite bloggers you follow.

Claire Sumners of FashionBombDaily and Shiona Turini (more of a journalist than a blogger) are two of my favorites right now. I love the way Claire has climbed to the top, is a resource for so many fashionistas and highlights a new Fashion Bomb every so often. I absolutely love the way Shiona Turini knows and loves who she is and where she comes from. Now THAT’S a Coco Gawdess.

What legacy do you want to leave behind for others to know about you?TheCocoGawdessBlogHeader

I can only hope that others see the chocolate in me. Not the obvious deep brown of my physical, but the sweet, richness of my soul. That sounds dramatic, but I want to leave behind a legacy of looking good on the inside and out. I want to be known as someone who helped other women and girls achieve that as well.

 

Be sure to stay up to date with all the chocolate goodness of Coco through social media:

Flyy Girl Friday Feature: Drea Hall

Well ladies, we have come to the end of Women’s History Month,

(Awwww)

however, we are still celebrating

Flyy Girls everywhere!

(Yay!)

It is so fitting to have this next blogger to end out this month, as she has inspired some of our featured Flyy Girls!

So get ready to know a blogger who has found her niche and is steadily becoming

a Brown Girl on the rise.

Ladies and Gentlemen

Drea.drea1

Please introduce yourself to the readers:

Hi, my name is Drea and I reside in Chicago, IL.

Tell the readers about your blog, The Drea Daily:

The Drea Daily is my lifestyle blog where I write about a myriad of topics but mostly style, beauty, food, music, books and my musings on just about anything that I am fancying at the time.

Why did you begin blogging?

I started blogging as an assignment for a college course I was taking at the time. It was called ‘Sociology of Leisure’ and at the beginning of the course, the professor instructed us to choose a leisure activity that we could see ourselves sticking with for the remainder of the semester, and I chose blogging. When the semester ended, I could’ve deleted my blog but I didn’t. And here I am four years later, still blogging

What motivates you to dedicate time to blogging?

I’ll preface this by admitting there are some days that I don’t feel like stringing a single sentence together, much less an entire blog post. That said, the one motivating factor that drives me back to my blog week after week is my selfish need to document what’s happening in my life — from the clothes I’m wearing, to the makeup I’m obsessed with, to the TV shows I’m watching, to the music I’m listening to. During my early years of blogging, my motivation for blogging was less self-serving; I wanted to have a blog that helped and inspired people. These days, I’m much more candid about my selfish reasons for blogging. I blog because I enjoy blogging about my life — that’s it. My intent is not to empower or enlighten anyone in the process, but if that happens, I’m okay with it.

the-drea-daily-blog

In one year, what do you hope manifests from your blogging?

In one year, I hope that my photography skills sharpen and my email newsletter gains more readers/subscribers.

Name two of your favorite bloggers you follow:

Two of my favorite bloggers to follow are Candice of CandiceVanWye.com because she has a very inspiring entrepreneurial spirit and I’m always curious to see what she does next. Plus, her blog posts are remarkably succinct and straight to the point; I never walk away from her blog befuddled by what she’s written. Also, Mary of Verily Merrily Mary because she’s an undeniably good writer with an extensive vocabulary. More than that, though, she’s a blogger who thinks. I can tell she wrestles with her thoughts and thinks before she writes, and I have a great admiration for that.

What legacy do you want to leave behind for others to know about you?drea-the-drea-daily-01

Frankly, my mind is never occupied with thoughts about what others will think of me when I’m gone. Leaving a legacy is just not something that crosses my mind when I’m blogging or doing anything else for that matter. If anything, I’d say that I would want others to know that I was an honest, transparent person. There is nothing about me or my life that I am ashamed to speak or write about. I own up to every bit of who I am and who I’ve been — the good, the not so good, as well as the nice and not so nice.

Be sure to follow Drea to keep up with her latest updates!

Flyy Girl Friday Feature: Amber-Janae

 

Happy Friday everyone and welcome back for this week’s Flyy Girl Friday Feature.

Today we celebrate a writer who bares her self to her readers.

Whether she gives blogging advice or heart to hearts, or some good girl talk,

her blog is like chicken soup for the soul.

Ladies and Gents,

Amber-Janae.

Welcome! Please introduce yourself to the readers.AmberJanae3

Amber-Janae from San Francisco (Bay Area) California.

Tell us about your blog, whoisamberjanae.com

I’ve have never learned how to classify whoisamberjanae.com. I just say it’s one of those blogs that feeds your soul and inspires you to be better.

Why did you begin blogging?

I started blogging to free my mind and spirit of all the situations from my past. I wanted to inspire other women. More importantly, when I had begun to learn that my struggles and stories were inspiring other women I couldn’t give up on them. It fueled my fire to continue blogging.

What motivates you to dedicate time to your blog?

There is so much that motivates me to dedicate time to blogging. The number one reason being my readers and supporters. I truly believe that without their honest love and support, I wouldn’t be as motivated as I am every day. There’s always a special comment and tweet that goes a long way and inspires me to keep pushing. I am always thinking toward the future; another reason that keeps me motivated. I’ve had a vision of what I’d like to see my blog develop into for years and now that I have the platform to make that happen I am motivated not to give up. There are times when I want to give up on blogging, but I always look at how far I have come. I have come too far to give up.

whoisamberjanae

In one year, what do you hope manifests from your blogging?

 In one year I hope to be more socially connected than I presently am as far as the blog goes. I’d like to see the audience grow and continue to inspire more women around the world to be a better version of themselves. A bigger platform for me to live in purpose and chase my destiny is what I am claiming to manifest in this New Year. I would also love to see me step out the norm and incorporate a variety of content into the blog. I’d like to add more of my outgoing, fun personality to the blog and not have it be serious 24/7. I would love the strength and consistency to produce more books and other written projects. Overall I just want to see my work ethic grow. A lot can happen in a year and I just pray that everything I desire and more comes to fruition.

Name two of your favorite bloggers you follow:Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

GG Rene of All the Many Layers has to be one of my all-time favorite bloggers. Her whole style and approach makes everything about her relatable. GG’s writing style is honest and captivating. Always full of love and light and sending constant reminders to be a better version of myself. I love her! Demetria Lucas of A Belle from Brooklyn is another one of my favorites. She just embodies the skill set of how to take your brand to new levels. She’s built a brand, set the bar, and created a platform that has essentially paved the way for all of us upcoming bloggers and authors.

What legacy do you want to leave behind for others to know about you?

 A legacy is something profound, something that really has no limits or boundaries. I pray to leave behind words of encouragement and love. I think there are so many misconceptions about who you truly are when choosing to put yourself out there into the public as a blogger, author etc. It’s hard for others to see who you truly are outside of what you choose to share. I’d like for my legacy to be something serious. For people to be able to speak of me and remember that I was a fighter, not just for myself, but for others. That my huge, loving heart and genuine spirits has taken many beatings, but I’ve always found a way to give back to others. I’d like for the world to remember me as a true lover of my life and all the woman I am. It’s hard to say more of what my legacy to be because there is so much that has yet to unfold. I know in my spirit my legacy will be a great one.

Flyy Girl Friday Feature: Chrissie

Hello readers and welcome back for another edition of

Flyy Girl Friday Feature!

Today focuses on a lady who is all about the pretty positivity!

Step into a world of good vibes and warm smiles.

Ladies and Gentlemen welcome

Chrissie

Hi Chrissie, please introduce yourself:ChrissieW2

Hi! I am Chrissie, but my friends call me Chris for short. I was born and raised in North Carolina, but currently residing in Maryland, outside of Baltimore.

Please tell us about your blog, ForeverPretty08:

My site is www.ForeverPretty08.com, and it is pretty much about everything that comes to mind that I am passionate about. I love fashion, beauty, traveling, cooking, discussing motherhood, fitness, natural hair care, relationships & marriage and God. You can find a post about those things and more! One thing I am learning, is to speak truth and light to others, so all of my posts, whether it is a product review or an inspirational post, I promise to be honest and real with everyone. I also have a YouTube channel, where I post in video form. My channel is ForeverPretty08.

Why did you begin blogging?

I actually started blogging back in 2000, during my 9th grade year. I didn’t have close friends or anyone who I could talk with regarding what was on my mind. That blog was my outlet to sharing my thoughts.  Now that blogging has become so popular, and more people are turning to blogging as a means of communication, I hope my thoughts can touch someone who may be going through or experiencing the same thoughts or things as me.ChrissieW1

What motivates you to dedicate time to blogging?

I think what motivates me is knowing that I have the time and ability to do it full-time now. I am a Stay At Home Mom and when my child is asleep in the day or night, I go to my computer to write and improve my blog. Before when I was working, in school, traveling and doing everything else, I didn’t have much time to blog or take it seriously. Now that I have more time, I am able to write and improve my blog. I believe it is what I have been called to do.

Furthermore, I hope to connect and collaborate with people and businesses down the line, once my blog becomes famous lol!

In one year, what do you hope manifests from your blogging?

Well, besides connecting and collaborating, I want to meet others who like me, enjoy blogging because it is something our hearts desire! Also, I would like to increase my subscriber base. I am praying that will change this year.

Name two of your favorite bloggers you follow:

I love Shirley B. Eniang of Shirley’s Wardrobe. She is a UK-based beauty blogger and she is AMAZING! Y’all need to check her out. I also like Heather Lindsey’s blog. She takes her walk with Jesus serious and I admire her for that; because a lot of us are influenced by worldly things, that we miss the blessings and new life we could have or live, if we were living for Christ. Her testimony is so inspirational and I can relate in so many ways. She helped me get through my single stage and has helped me become closer to Christ. Y’all should check her out as well!

ChrissieW3

What legacy do you want to leave behind for others to know about you?

I hope that my blog can help and inspire someone in some way. Whether it be from my favorite lipstick, to helping you get through a life struggle. I hope that something I post may be a light to someone who may be misguided, misinformed or simply unaware. I am human like everyone else, so I can relate to a lot of things in life. I know my readers will be inspired and hopefully I will be someone’s “Friend in their head.”
