Today is my blog's three year Blogiversary! YAAAII!!

Three years ago, I created this blog on a whim just to stay in contact with my parents while I was living in the U.S. getting my undergraduate degree (See my very first post HERE! and my first outfit post HERE!). I never dreamed that my blog would become what it is today!

So many wonderful things have happened to me thanks to my blog. I've had the privilege of being featured on the websites of Glamour Magazine as well as Lucky Magazine. I also had my dream come true by being featured in Cosmopolitan for Latinas' Magazine

More than the features, what I've enjoyed the most out of these past three years is having a place to be myself and share my passion for fashion and life. The Joy of Fashion has given me the opportunity to share my positive attitude that hopefully has helped others find joy in their own lives.

I want to thank each and every one of your for visiting my blog, commenting, writing emails, etc. You have all been so supportive! You keep me motivated to continue pursuing my dreams.

I'm so so very happy right now. I feel like I am following my dreams, just like I wanted when I was a little girl. I'm doing what I love, and this brings me tremendous joy. Thank you so much everyone!

  25. Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to produce
    a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole
    lot and don't manage to get anything done. ageless male - ageless male - can you get ageless male in stores

  26. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on
    the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre
    talking about, why throw away your intelligence on
    just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us
    something informative to read?
