My name is Priiincesss, I am a personal life and style blogger based out of Atlanta Ga. I am originally from Haiti, being an island girl definitely have something to do with my work ethic and passion for people. Most of my time is spent working, but when I’m not working I’m spending time with the people I absolutely adore!!
What did you want to be when you were a little kid? – As as kid I never really know what wanted to be. Even after high school I struggle finding what I was passionate about. But, I’ve always love fashion and hoped of owning my own boutique one day.
What was your first job? -My very first job was working KFC. I hate it and endup quitting because the manage wouldn’t let me have my fake nails, lol. Plus the people there really sucked. Being in high demand and having to deal with a bunch of adults who act like kids just wasn’t all the appealing.
When did you decide to pursue your current career path as a Blogger? -I launched my blog in 2011. And at the time blogging was pretty new and I was already getting dressed daily and sharing my pictures on Facebook, so finding out I can create a blog and share my passion with the world was pretty exciting. And six years later it’s mind blowing to see how much I’m grown and learn through blogging!!
What do you love most about your job? – I love that I get to live out my dream every single day. I get to be creative, meet people from
different walks of life, inspire others to following their dreams all while doing what I love. Being a blogger is work, HARD work but it’s rewarding and worth it!!
Do you have a mentor?
Yes, Koereyelle Dubose of the Single Wives Club. That woman is AMAZING!! I have learned sooo much from her over the years. She is one of the hardest working women I know.
·I met her on Social Media. I have been following her since 2013 and have attended some of her events but we did not actually connect until I covered her major conference in 2016.
· How have they impacted your career? So many doors have opened for me just by applying some of the business/life lessons I’ve learned from her. I was able to Attend and cover Blogger17 all because of her.
Where do you get your hair influence your creativity?
–I don’t do much to my hair. I’m a simple girl when it comes to hair. I just like my hair clean, healthy and shiny. My hair is down most of the time but all summer I was OBSESSED with the little dread-knots. But the actual style inspiration was from a picture my business partner posted on her social media.
Has rejection ever affected your creative process? -Absolutely not. At the end of the day all a no does is inspire me to work harder and harder. When I reach out to a brand regarding a collaboration and I get a not, I would literally make a mental note and keep it pushing.
Name 3 lessons you’ve learned from building your career :
- Consistency is KEY
- Talent is pointless without a strong worth ethic
- I am a lot stronger than I thought. Be a creative is TOUGH and you must have tougher skin…
Career Advice for future Bloggers -Blogging is fun and excited but blogging is WORK, real life work. So make sure it’s something you are passionate about and be ready and willing to put in consistent work.
