Welcome back, guys! Before I get into the outfits from the episodes, I just need to give a huge THANK YOU for all of the love and support I’ve been getting over the past 7 weeks. I swear I never in my dreams even imagined something like this. It’s been overwhelming in the best way possible. For every one negative comment I get, I have a 100 positive messages to outweigh it all. And I couldn’t be more appreciative of those who have been following me from day 1, even before there was any of this reality tv talk! There are very few who were there for this, and are still with me today:
I started sharing my style via Instagram on July 5, 2015…. I had 0 followers. I created an Instagram account @infashionwetrustt (which is actually still up and running) with literally NO audience. But it didn’t stop me from sharing what I loved and hustling to reach my goals. At the same time, my own personal instagram was growing (slowly, but definitely more than my fashion account). I kept at it anyway for a year and a half, and eventually on January 7, 2017 (gaining only 1,077 followers in that time span) I decided it was time to hit the ground running. I dropped that secondary instagram and completely revamped my entire personal account (which had exactly 3,000 followers, and I felt would be easier to pick up faster). For the next month, my days fully revolved around creating my brand. I was working full time, long hours, and spending every morning before work (at 5 am), every lunch break, and every night after work (until 1 am) shooting new looks, editing my site, creating blog posts, etc. On February 5, 2017, infshnwetrust.com was officially launched, up and running. My announcement on Instagram received 438 likes and 30 comments… and I thought, “YES! I MADE IT!” I spent every day moving forward hustling harder and harder, having my coworkers shoot my pictures during our lunch break, meeting up with a different photographer everyday after work, whatever it took to grow. I was receiving a small amount of support, but from from people from all over the world! They were telling me how much they loved my posts and my drive and that they had been following my journey since the @infashionwetrustt days- and it’s those people who STILL to this day message me that they are always watching and supporting. Today is June 7th, 2018 and I can’t even fathom that I have 65 THOUSAND FOLLOWERS. Of course, I know the majority of this comes from viewers who watch me on TV. But what really stands out the most to me, is the hundreds who message me over the past few weeks simply telling me that they came across my page (now that it has grown so much), or my YouTube, or just my site in general, and didn’t even know I was on a show! They just started loving my style, and now they watch me on tv! This blog is finally turning into everything I ever hoped it would be, and it’s all thanks to all of YOU.
But regardless of any of that, I am SO thankful for every single one of you… whether you like my style, my personality, or for whatever other reason you are showing me support, I could not be more appreciative to have you. I am genuinely my happiest right now because of you.
