If you’re here, you’re most likely passionate about fashion, photography, beauty or your own blog.
As someone who’s a one-person show, I’m here to inspire and motivate YOU to be your fiercest, stylish self all the while running your own entrepreneurial venture. 🙂
I want you to have access to all the tips and resources which will ensure you can create a blogging empire for yourself AND where you catch up on your #OOTD trends without having to jump around to a thousand different sites.
Launched in 2012, Style Tomes was originally intended to be a collection of life tips. Those tips slowly turned into a steady flow of fashion news and blogging resources. I want to inspire fashion entrepreneurs and bloggers to grow out of their day job and become full-time fashionista making their own hours.

Inspire your own audience if you have your own blog
Grow your online brand by providing actionable advice (whether you have a blog or not!)
Market yourself and your work in the best light to grow your traffic and help even more people!
Learning how and when to monetize
Learn how to interact with brands and creating successful campaigns
Perfect your photography
Learn how the fashion world works by taking you behind the scenes in the industry
A Few Posts To Get You Started
My Fashion Bakground
I started in the fashion industry when I was 17, as a model, so I’ve lived through various stages of fashion. Being a model makes you hustle a little bit harder, especially if you’re going to general casting calls. I got lucky enough to have an amazing agent in my early years who introduced me to talent which imparted knowledge I’ve carried with me until now.
I learned how photoshoots work, what the behind the scenes looks like and everything about the industry as it relates to putting out amazing, published content! Before long, I was working in a fashion production office and I was part of new PR company. I did test shoots with up and coming models and did some styling. I did it all and I loved it all.
As my fashion break, I moved into IT and started learning all about the technical aspects of running a website. All my life skills helped me get to the point where I was suddenly running my own fashion blog and helping girls around me with their blogs!
I started Style Tomes as a personal outlet for self-expression. I struggled with body image issues for over a decade, so it’s important to inspire my readers to love them for being themselves. Self-acceptance and confidence are very difficult to nourish, but I’m a proven case that with the right mindset, women (and men) can grow and flourish no matter the circumstance or what the culture dictates as “perfection”. There are enough opinions and criticisms to derail our self-actualization journey without me adding to the mix. I’m hoping to inspire independence- style is developed by being unique and by not being afraid to experiment!
I’m sure you’re excited to get a jump start on your photography and blogging, so head over to the Blog Tips area if you’re looking to jump start your blogging or photography. Otherwise, check out all the fashion inspo and the behind the scenes over here.
