Happy Valentine’s Day! StyleByToyoC is 1…..
I honestly cannot believe this, I am too excited (my fav word, LOL). Nothing in life comes easy guys. I remember when I started, I loved dressing up and I just wanted to show my fun personality. I also wanted to show people that you don’t have to have millions to look good. I am so thankful to each and everyone of you, YES YOU… I won’t be where I am if not for your continuous support (leaving comments, the likes). I had a conversation with a friend and she said to me ” I can see your growth as a fashion blogger”. That statement made my day. I have gotten so many amazing feedback and I appreciate YOU.
I want to encourage someone today, don’t let anyone tell you that you are not good enough for anything. People will only congratulate when they see you winning. You don’t have to wait for validation for people to follow your dreams. Believe in yourself. I have learnt so much about myself this past few year blogging. It’s easy to get carried away and compare your self/ pace with someone else, but DON’T. Each person has a path destined for them, work hard, be consistent and you will be shocked the things that will come your way. Always question your motives, make sure you do things from a place of love.
There will always be naysayers, don’t let their words discourage you but rather let it encourage you. I am thankful to all the people I’ve met thus far in the blogging industry and the many more I am yet to meet. In one year, many doors of opportunities opened. Who would have thought, Toyosi would go for NYFW and have style celeb like my pics on Instagram. I am learning to celebrate my successes. I have realized people are always watching and this encourages me to be a better ME. I have had low moments when I wasn’t motivated to blog. Can this be a passion and you won’t be motivated sometimes. Yes! But always remember why you started in the first place. Ok enough talking…just so excited and grinning as I write this:)
I recently did a giveaway on my Instagram page where I partnered with brands to give a special person a memorable valentine style over. So, if you are wondering what I am up to for Val’s day, I am doing something special for someone. I will be styling the winner of the giveaway. Let’s make Magic happen, make sure you check my snapchat (stylebytoyoc) and instastories (toyo_c).
In celebration of my blog anniversary, please let me know your favourite looks in the past year in the comment section. Also, do something special for someone (someone you don’t know).
Thank you beautiful people from all across the world, I love you all and cheers to many more amazing years together 🙂
