Fashion Inspiration: 4 Cool Blogs To Follow In 2012

Channing In The City

I came across this fashion forward blog while surfing the net this past week. As a sucker for fashion I was impressed with the cool finds and tips that this young lady has to offer. Her story goes like this:

 ” When I came out of Penn State in 2009, I thought I would be anchoring the 6 o’clock news. With my broadcast journalism degree in hand, and not a job opportunity in sight, I turned my focus from hard news to fashion news. Fast-forward, now, almost three years later and I am now a full-fledged style/beauty journalist blogging and vlogging my way to New York City. “

This sounds all too familiar to me, as I too was in the same place with the same degree a couple of years ago… I’m definitely up for seeing whats to come. Check her out!

Featured Dream Chaser: From hair fanatic to Founder & President of Rochelle Yanique, Inc.

I know her as Rochelle Boreland, a beautiful young lady who is hard-working  and a for sure “go-getter.” Rochelle and I met while attending the University of Miami, and although we didn’t get the opportunity to become bff’s, I could always sense that  we share a common thread… our passion for hair and all things beauty related. Its one of those things that you just know when it’s in your presence… 🙂

Anyway, when Rochelle and I crossed paths again several months ago  and she  informed me of her hopes to turn her passion for hair into a business, I couldn’t have been more excited for her. What makes me even prouder is that she didn’t just sit on the idea, from that day on she’s been making moves to the best of her abilities and watching miracles unfold. Rochelle has officially incorporated her business Rochelle Yanique, INC., through which she offers her specialty “Protective Styling” technique that keeps the natural hair protected, while maintaining the ability to rock the latest styles. But that’s not all. For years Rochelle has been a huge connoisseur  of hair products and has developed some useful techniques, and she’s decided to share some of her own tried-and-true expertise on with women and girls alike.

The fact that Rochelle recognizes her passion and gifts, and she’s willing to share them with the world, is what makes her an ultimate dream chaser. #teamdreamchasers

 ROCHELLE: In My Own Words

Hair fanatic, and future elected official with dreams of one day changing the world! I believe a truly talented person can be great at many things. For that reason, I have stepped beyond my love of government to explore my passion.

Long, short, natural, curly I love it all! Hair is my favorite accessory and quite frankly, the final touch on any look. After years of visiting hair salons and spending large amounts of money, I decided to compile my favorite affordable products and techniques to share with girls just like me. Although I am no expert, through Rochelle Yanique, Inc. I intend to share all that I have tried– and more importantly, what WORKS.
