When is your birthday? : August 15 LEO ♌️ 100% all day / 🔥 sign
When did you start blogging?: 9/6/2017 – after much debating with myself. I was not sure if I wanted to commit to blogging but I am so happy I did! I’ve made so many friends and connections that I truly cherish! It’s brought with me closer to my community and always keeps me on my toes!
What made you want to start blogging?: I have always loved fashion and dressing up. I am constantly taking pictures in new outfits and posting OOTD’s sooo I figured why not use a blog as a creative outlet to show and share my passion for fashion. It is also a great way to bond with other fashion enthusiast and brands in my area. I love to support local and my mission is to show you can find a budget version of so many beautiful items. I wish I could buy all designers amazing works of art, but I can’t. My dream is to eventually have my own boutique of some sort.
Why did you choose the name PeashyKeen?: I wanted to do a play on words. Since Peachy Keen is used to define something as Fine or Excellent and my nickname is Peash (shout out to Zachary Rollins) I wanted to collaborate the two to create my blog name. 😊
Where do you find inspiration?: Any and Everywhere! I take inspiration from my grandmother’s style, 90’s throw backs, my mother’s closet, local boutiques and more! I try to take other styles and put my own flair to it. I love trendy looks but always want to make it my own by adding a slight twist. Lately I have found the blogger community helps me find different ways of styling, which is half the reason I wanted to start mine! It is an amazing thing to share and learn from other women. I hope we all continue to build each other up! #podsquad
