JULY BLOGGER OF THE MONTH: Jo Anne van Eden of MySelf Expressed


Hi! I'm Jo-Anne.

A while back my hubby was offered a job here in the US (we're from South Africa).  Long story short – he accepted; we resigned from our jobs; packed our bags and jumped on a plane – and here we are, in Houston Texas.

My dad was an author and my mom was an art teacher.  They were all about the written word, art & self-expression - my parents saw beauty in everything.  I never followed in their creative footsteps (until now), instead I went into IT and later Project Management.

Now that I'm in the states, I've found my calling: blogging about all things beautiful! 

What is your blog about and what are your goals for your blog?

My blog is a little corner on the internet where anyone and everyone can stop by for some visual inspiration - be it a collage of brightly colored, quirky posters

 or some budget-friendly summer outfit ideas

or a fashion mood board 

I want my content to be visually addictive and inspire beautiful living.

What's your favorite thing about being a blogger?

I think it's the freedom we have as bloggers to express ourselves in any medium we see fit - that's exciting!

Why did you choose to join Houston Fashion Bloggers?

I wanted to join a group of creative individuals from whom I could learn and with whom I could share experiences. The Houston Fashion Bloggers provide exactly the support I need as an Independent Fashion Blogger in the Houston area
