Fashion is more than just a glamorous lifestyle!


Dear bloggers, Why do you blog?

Walk in clothes with clothes and shoes

While browsing through a few WordPress articles the other day I stumbled across one titled, “First Steps with WordPress.” The article did a good job familiarizing beginners with WordPress functions and layouts. As I read further in the article I came across a set of questions. It made me think about heranyx.com. My focus and purpose behind creating this blog in the first place. It inspired me to write this post. I want to share my thoughts with you so, here are the  questions along with my answers. Read and enjoy them!

1. What am I going to do with this? 

I’m going to use this blog to shake things up in the fashion world

2. Who is going to read this?

You, because you’re willing to listen and you’re intrigued by things past the surface

3. What kind of information will I be posting?

It’s fashion from my point of view. My passion, my journey, my thoughts & my visions

4. Why am I doing this?

I view things differently so, I want you to see where I’m coming from. Fashion is my outlet to express myself. It’s not just about the clothes. It’s about creative freedom. It’s about the visions in my head and finding ways to bring them to you. And sometimes I can’t find the words to help you understand. So, I paint pictures through my clothes, through my camera, and through other people. I’m doing this because this is who I am. There’s a story to tell and there’s a new light to share with the world.

5. Who am I doing this for?

I’m doing this for me and for you… the passionate, ambitious, & creative souls

6. How often am I going to be posting and adding information?

I promise not to force a post.  I believe in quality over quantity. I write when I’m inspired, I take pictures when I have a vision, and I post when I have something to share with the world.


Now, it’s your turn. Leave a comment below introducing yourself and your blog, then answer the questions above. Feel free to answer all the questions or just a few. It’s still early in the New Year of 2013 and this is a great exercise for you & your blog! I look forward to hearing your thoughts & checking out your blog!



Hand to Heart Center for NYE!

I have to enter the NEW YEAR harnessing good energy and a positive attitude. This year I wanted to participate in something peaceful and mentally stimulating. I told my friend that I would be hand to heart center for New Year’s Eve (a prayer position in yoga). He probably thought I was joking, but I was too serious. I started attending yoga classes a few months ago and was thrilled to find out that there was a special New Year’s Eve class at 8th Street Studio in Charlotte (talk about speaking it into existence). It was everything in one… meditation, chanting, asanas, self-reflection, and more.

Of course I attended and I have to admit it was pretty amazing! 10pm to midnight. A solid two hours of good energy. It was a great way to start 2013.During the session we were instructed to participate in two writing activities. One, was a letter that we wrote to ourselves about what 2013 would be like. The plan was that the instructors would mail our letters back to us some time in the new year of 2013. The second activity consisted of us writing down a list of things that we wanted leave behind in 2012. Five minutes shy of midnight everyone set their list to flames… literally. It was a good feeling watching those pieces of paper burn.

We can’t undo the things in our past, but we can learn from them and move forward. Everyday that you’re given is a new day. To see a NEW YEAR is a blessing! I felt good as I left the studio. I felt it in my spirit. It was a similar feeling that I felt last year, but much more profound. I’m thankful for the year 2012. It revealed another level of who I am. Now, I look forward to the year 2013!

peace, love, & prosperity!


How did you spend your New Year’s Eve? What do you plan on leaving behind in the year 2012? What are you looking forward to in the year 2013?
