Miss Jessie's

FEATURE Friday w/ Kiwi The Beauty



As the saying goes, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"  
Today's feature for this FEATURE Friday is KiSheyna of 

I met Kiwi just a little over a year ago and from day one she's been real.  I found her to be down to earth and full of blogger knowledge.  Our conversation went a little like this....


*What were your life plans before you started blogging?
     
     ~ I was going to college to be a publicist.  To past the time away, because there wasn't as many of the current social media platforms of today, I starting blogging.  

* How has blogging affected your life?

     ~ Blogging has effected a big part of my life, mainly my income.  Through blogging, I've experienced some great opportunities.  So much so that if I'd have gone the PR route I don't think I would have encountered them.  It has changed my life dramatically.  It's almost surreal at times just looking at where writing has taken me...  I love it!!!!!!!!!!!! 

* What are some of your greatest blogging accomplishments

     ~ Oh gosh!  Being on billboards for Miss Jessie's, magazine features and more recently, making the cover of It's My Hair! Magazine.

* What do you like least about blogging?

     ~ Editing!  Don't get me wrong, blogging is beautiful.  It's just that this piece can be the most time consuming piece.

* Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

     ~ I guess that depends on how social media goes... Definitely blogging to my highest potential.  Having an extremely high reach, over the 100k mark.  Making six figures all while continuing to create a brand from my blog.  I would really be doing myself a disservice if I wasn't operating with multiple streams of income.  This is my goals  


























* Being a social media-lite, what would you do if social media didn’t exist?

     ~ Social media effects not just bloggers, but everybody.  Without it a lot of people would be lost.  Social media is how we connect with people.  It has changed the game for quite a bit of people.

* Describe Kiwi in one word?

     ~ Creative

* As a blogger, what would you say is your area of expertise?

     ~ Being a creative being, I don't have any one specific area.  My niche is media, beauty and lifestyle blogger

* What advise do you have for rising bloggers? 

     ~ Don't get caught up on what other bloggers are doing or social media numbers.  Don't be intimidated.  In the blogging community, there's enough room for us all.  And most importantly, be willing to learn.  Read books, take workshops, even attend conferences.  If you don't believe in your brand, no one else will.

Sunday Brunch

Hi There Stylenista's!

My weekend ended on a great note; I attended Miko Branch of Miss Jessie's book signing meet & greet event.  Let me first say that Miko is gorgeous.  Listening to her story was very encouraging and inspiring.  Although she said a lot of good nuggets, what stood out most to me was that through hard work, perseverance and consistency, success is attainable.  I'm really glad that I went.

How ironic that I wore black and white just like the host's... Rita K. Davis of CocoaFab and the sweetest blogger I know, Kiwi "The Beauty".  Now before you go guessing how much I paid for my outfit, only one piece is thrifted.  Can you guess which one?  Let me help you out... my handbag!  Both the peplum top and fitted skirt are from F21 and the shoes are from gojane.

Check out my look and a few pic's from the event..
