❤ Darlene of Suits, Heels & Curves
Darlene and I go way way back to College. She was one of the first Latinas I met on campus and we automatically clicked. Eventually we became roomates… and survived!!! It seems like we have known each other our whole lives. We have been there for each other through all of the important life moments since then. Most recently, she encouraged me to start a blog and has been one of my main supporters. Darlene represents the modern day career woman who CAN do it all. She is an avid traveler, holds an MBA in Executive Management, and is fully bilingual in Spanish. Her blog, Suits, Heels and Curves and her self development workshop, Redefining Healthy, encourages women to push past societal boundaries and conquer their fears. Make sure to check her out: http://www.suitsheelsandcurves.com
❤ Kathleen from Curvy Sketches
I first learned of Kathleen through Instagram (make sure to follow her to see more of her amazing work… http://www.instagram.com/curvysketches). I don’t remember exactly how I stumbled about her page but when I did… I became super excited. Because I am a curvy woman, I loved how realistic and beautiful her drawings were. Commissioning an illustration from her was a birthday present to myself since I knew it would be the perfect addition to whatever developed for my blog. I reached out and told her my vision. As a result, she went above and beyond making sure my vision was brought to life. I could not be happier. Thank you again Kathleen! If you would like a custom illustration, you can find her on Etsy – https://www.etsy.com/shop/CurvySketches
Due to an extremely tight budget, one of my concerns starting a blog (as with everything) is cost. Since I was very hesitant to start the blog, I spoke with a friend and she suggested Blogelina’s $7 Blog Set-Up…. Yes $7!!! I will admit…. It seems like it is too good to be true and yes… I was VERY skeptical at first. Eventually I decided why not?!?! As a result all I have to say is look at my website… isn’t it fabulous?!?! My experience has been great and I highly recommend them if you are looking to get your blog set up. Click here to get the $7 deal – Blogelina’s $7 Blog Set-Up
