SEPTEMBER BLOGGER OF THE MONTH: Marcella of Wrk It Girl
I am Marcella, Editor-In-Chief of WrkITGirl.com and I am a University of Texas at Austin graduate and I am a Houston Native. I have always loved fashion and beauty but never thought that I would be able to make a career out of it. It wasn't until 2012 that I decided to go against the grain. I am now a MAC Cosmetics freelance makeup artist and I have a fashion & beauty blog call Wrk IT Girl.
What is your blog about and the goals you have for your blog?
WrkITGirl.com was created as an outlet to foster a healthy self-image among young women and to empower others to go for their dreams. I wanted to showcase my journey from the beginning to hopefully inspire someone else in the world. I mainly focus on fashion and beauty related content as well as some celebrity and nightlife.
Goals for the blog include: gaining more opportunities for world travel to be able to spread this mission all over the world; one day develop a non-profit or partner with a non-profit to help young girls with self-esteem and self-image; to continue to grow WrkITGirl.com's influence; go to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week.
What's your favorite thing about being a blogger?
My favorite thing about being a blogger is the opportunity to help others through my posts and the relationships I have developed with other people in the industry have been so great.
Why did you choose to join Houston Fashion Bloggers
I chose to join Houston Fashion Bloggers because I had just moved back from Austin, TX after living there for 7 years and I had no friends and I didn't know where to start. I started doing some google searches around Houston for social organizations to join and nothing sparked my interest. So I searched "Fashion blogging Houston, TX" and that how my HFB journey started! I am so glad that I decided to join and I have met so many amazing people and developed some true friendships.
