PERSONAL CAREER MILESTONE UPDATE – Earlier this year, I began working on a passion project called The Modern Dating Ventroom. Little did I know that it will land me my first series of international awards (@adesignaward and American Web Design Award) and the chance to celebrate my birthday in Italy attending the award gala in June! I’m truly humbled for this incredible opportunity and BIG shoutout to @nicolenlau, @darunia77, @sofiagarcia, @eklaubs and my stellar developer for helping me along the way and making this happen! If you’re curious about the project, check out the website (link in bio) and VOTE for me! It will be my first time visiting Lake Como, Italy. Any recommendations for places to check out, please spam my comments or DM (not literally, but you know what I mean😊). 📷 | @eyvafotografi NYC friends, Eyva is seriously an amazing photographer. Collab with her! http://liketk.it/2vFQW #liketkit @liketoknow.it . . . . . #ladyinred #redboots #croptop #vintagevibe #fashionmagazine #fashionshoot #fashionblogger #styleblogger #brooklynbridge #newyorkblogger #newyorkstyle #retrostyle #styleicon #styleinspiration #outfitinspiration #cutestyle #ootdwomen #ootdblogger #ootdshare #ootdfashion #ootdmagazine #currentlywearing #fashiongram #blackandred #portraitclub #portraitphotography #fashionphotography #styledbyme #mystyle
