Don’t wait for opportunity to come to you.


Can we all agree that waiting for anything or anyone is the worst? Ok, good. Because sometimes, a fashion blogger has to take control of her business practices and stop waiting around for a brand to come to you. Be proactive, not reactive. Because while you are waiting around for an email to magically drop in your inbox, opportunities are flying by.


Do the work. Trust me, it will pay off.

  1. Soo important to not just sit back and wait for things to come to you! My mom used to tell me the squeaky wheel gets the grease & that dumb idiom has always stuck with me :)

    This is very true and very important for anyone, not just bloggers! What you will be in the future depends on what you do now, so don’t miss a chance!

    I will do this in the future for sure .. but right now, my blog is fairly new and I don’t really have much to offer a brand at this point.

    I’m ok with that as it takes time to build a great site :-)

    Exactly what I’m doing now…hunting down fashion opportunities, pushing myself; not sitting around waiting for some amazing opportunity to land in my hands.
