How to Turn Your Blog into a Business
Where do you live?I am from LA, and am currently based in Miami. I am always going back and forth.
How old are you?27
Tell us a little about yourself:I am a dog mom and originally from California. I now reside in Miami. I have been modeling since I was very young, and am now a full time travel + fashion blogger, and swimwear designer for my newly launched line, Tosh Swimwear.
What’s the first thing you do in the morning?The first thing I do is check my phone, wash my face, put on fitness clothes, and then feed & walk my dogs. After that, I make coffee so that I can function, and check my email and make a to-do list for the day.
You’re gorgeous, what does your beauty routine look like? Since I work from home, I only wear my Tatcha moisturizer until it's time to leave the house. When I finally do put makeup on, I only use Laura Mercier oil-free foundation because my skin is very sensitive. Unless I have an event that night, or an important photoshoot during the day, I wear very minimal makeup, always contouring my face with blush and bronzer.
If you had to wear the same outfit for the rest of your life what would it be?That's a hard question! If I was on an island, a bikini. If it was never cold, I would choose a flowy white maxi dress, and cute sandals because maxi dresses are so chic and comfortable.
We want to know, what’s in your beach bag?Probably the whole world haha. I always include sunblock, a makeup bag, (with all of the essentials like BB cream, lotion, chapstick, tissue, etc.), 2 large water bottles, (I drink A TON of water) a hat to protect my face from the sun, an extra pair of sunglasses, (I am a blogger after all), and an extra bikini from my swimwear line, so that I can take tons of pics, and healthy snacks like fresh fruits.
How did you get inspired to create a swimwear line?Thanks to my blogging career, I have been blessed with opportunities to travel the world in the last few years, and am now pursuing my career as a swimwear designer. My line, Tosh Swimwear launched this past June, and I am also the face of it. I have been modeling since I was very young, and that included modeling a lot of swimwear.
After moving to Miami, I wear swimwear almost every day- I love bikinis. I would live in them If I could! When designing my line, I remembered things that I loved about the swimwear lines that I would model, and things that I hated. I created pieces that really show off the female body, and enable women to embrace their curves.
Who’s your favorite musician to jam out to when no one’s looking?I honestly love lain music. I always put on today's Latin hits, even though I don't speak Spanish!
If you could travel anywhere in the world - where would it be?I've always wanted to see the pyramids in Egypt and to go to Bora Bora to shoot new pieces from my line.
What’s your favorite thing to do in your down time?If I ever have downtime, I like to go to the beach and/or shopping :-p
They say you are what you eat, what are you?My diet is usually pasta, cheeseburgers, and pizza. Although I throw in salads and chicken with every meal. But some days, I detox and only eat salads and veggies to break up the junk food. It really depends on how I am feeling.
If your best friends could tell us something embarrassing about you, what would it be?Probably that I am a huge jokester. I am just a dork underneath all the fashion.
What are your favorite looks from Bikini Luxe?I am loving anything with gold in it right now.
Where do you get your sense of style from?I started to love fashion at a very young age, because my grandmother and mom were very into fashion and shopping. I also get my interior decorating skills from them.
What inspired you to start your own Blog?I've always gotten compliments on my style, so in 2013, I decided to start documenting my outfits with my camera.
Tell us about your dream collab, who is it and why?My dream collaboration would be with a department store like Barney's or Neiman Marcus. It wold be an honor to have something I designed in their stores.
Girls worldwide want to do what you’re doing, do you have any advice for them?
Work hard, do something productive each day, and never ever give up, no matter how hard things may get.
