This Wednesday I’m feeling especially inspired. Maybe because International Women’s Day just passed on March 8th or maybe because it’s Women’s History Month. On top of those special celebrations, it is also Woman Crush Wednesday better known by the social media world as #WCW. They also have a new spin on it with the hashtag #WIW or Woman Inspiration Wednesday. So in support of these holidays, I’ve decided to share some of the women that truly inspire me. These women inspire me to continue on my path to greatness, they provide me with ideas on ways to improve my blog and brand, and they encourage me to stay focused and they represent the woman that is beautiful and intelligent.
I know I’ve shared this before but my sister really is my biggest inspiration. It’s actually a beautiful thing that as my younger sister, she inspires me to always be the best me I can be. She always encourages me to go after what it is that I want and not let life negatively effect me. You honestly wouldn’t even be reading a blog if it wasn’t for her. So thank you Sharae!

2. Shiona Turini
Don’t laugh but I saw Shiona last year while I was volunteering for Fashion Week and something about her presence made me want to find out who she was so I snapped a picture of her and sent it to my best friend. My best friend who I also call “Snapple Facts” tells me she was at that time the Fashion Market Director of Cosmopolitan. I instantly knew that she was the kind of woman that I would look up to because she is so fashionable and respectable. She has since decided to pursue her own ventures, and I wish her the best of luck!

3. Karen Civil
I consider Karen Civil the young Oprah. She inspires us woman to be driven, smart and well rounded. She’s also an entrepreneur, something I aspire to be, and she travels around the world inspiring others. I mean there’s not much more to say besides, “she’s it!”

4. Shirley B. Eniang
Shirley is one of the leaders in the Style and Beauty blogging/vlogging world. I came across her instagram page on one of my random instagram scrolling sessions and I thought wow her aesthetic is very impressive. Her photos are awesome, her presentation is perfection, her following is phenomenal and she’s beautiful. Not to mention she has a cool London accent. But yea she’s definitely a true leader in the blogging world and someone us bloggers look up to.

5. Angela Simmons
Angela has created her own brand and individualized herself as a woman. She inspires me to stay rooted in my belief in God and also be exactly who I want to be and how I want to be. Plus it’s pretty cool to have an app, I want an app too!
