I can’t believe that La Spicy Gringa is finally here! Writing/blogging/gettin’ creative have been weighing on my mind heavily for the last year or so, & I am so excited to finally take the step (it actually feels more like a leap… off of a cliff… into a black hole… oblivious to what the future holds) towards expression.
“So, why the heck should I follow?”
Glad you asked! Well, my dogs thinks I’m pretty great so that’s one reason, but here are a few more:
- Fashion is everything & I like to think that I have a unique (my motto: leopard is a neutral) sense of the topic
- Creativity will be fostered in a joyful, candid & bold way – in other words posts will always be SPICYYYYYY
- Who doesn’t need more inspiration in their lives??
If you want to dive deeper, here is the less condensed version of my bullet points and why I chose to blog…
Two years ago I took a completely separate leap of faith and quit my cozy office job with a well-known Houston non-profit to pursue a Master of Social Work and work part-ish time in retail. Well, I ended up getting hired as full-time and joined the management team within a year. I’ve learned a lot working in retail, but I think the hands-down most important thing that I have learned is how much I freakin’ love fashion and expressing myself through the pieces I wear.
That brings us here. I hope with every ounce of me that you enjoy what you see, but I can’t promise that it’ll be perfect (but what/who is?! Besides Jesus of course). What I can promise you is that La Spicy Gringa will always be candid+bold+audacious+unapologetic+relevant… spicy.
Now cheers to you for visiting and shots for me because I’m nervous/excited/feeling all the feels.
