My name’s Emily Hernandez. I’m a writer and lifestyle/fashion & style content creator from New York City.
For as long as I can remember I have always had this love for creating content. I’ve loved being able to explore, try new things and places around New York and share it with anyone and everyone that I could; and for a long time, I primarily did that here on my blog.
I always say that first and foremost, I’m a writer, because that’s where my love for creating content really started. I’ve always had this love for being able to write; stories, thoughts… you name it, I wrote it. I would constantly drive my parents crazy whenever we would go out because no matter where we were or what we were doing, I would always somehow find myself in the books/notebook section of every store grabbing for an empty, brand new book to be able to write in. I easily had 50 of them all over my room when I was younger (now whether or not I would actually fill them up is a separate issue, but the answer is no, no I did not 😂).
Fast forward 10 years, and not much has really changed other than the fact that not only am I buying my own notebooks now, but I’m also more mindful of sticking to and finishing one full book at a time before moving on to a new one (growth, amiright?).
I have always loved to write and still do, but had also always been super shy and nervous about putting my stuff out there. It’s such a scary thing to be so open and vulnerable with your thoughts, opinions, style, etc. to even just the people that you know, but imagine adding complete strangers to the equation now…🥴
Will they like the things that I have to say and the ways I think? Will they judge me for these things if they don’t? Will people even take the time to read my stuff? Am I even good at this?? It’s all so intimidating, and had been what’s kept me from doing something like this for years. This is a side of me that few to none have seen. But, in the last like 5 years, I’ve gotten to a point in my life where I decided that not only is life too short, but it goes by too quickly and if I don’t put myself out there and see where this goes NOW, not only will I never get to see my true, full potential, but I’ll also never get to achieve a fraction of the goals that I have set for myself in my life.
For a good 2 years, I mostly would put myself out there here on my blog and that was basically it. Fast forward to around 2019, I decided to further expand on my content creation and how much I would put myself out there, and take my Instagram more seriously AND create a YouTube channel. Fast forward another 2 years onto current day in 2022, and I am now creating content on pretty much any social media platform that you can think of, BUT primarily Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and here on the blog. It’s been such a long, wild ride thus far, but I’ve been learning and improving so much with each day that passes.
So, without further adieu, here it is…
This is me. This is who I am, and ultimately, I’m just a girl from a big city trying to find myself and make an impact on the world through my content. This is my lifestyle blog that isn’t actually about any one particular thing, because the Leo in me gets bored too quickly and needs to constantly keep things new and fresh. So, it’s going to be about a variety of different things; and I hope you guys like the things that I end up posting about, and if not, that’s okay too.
However, one thing you guys should know about me is that I am ALWAYS open to criticism and suggestion, so if you ever have anything in mind that you would like for me to check out, write about or review, please always feel free to reach out and let me know about them.
Let’s also try to keep this a relatively positive, respectful and good vibes type of environment for myself, but also you guys as my audience. I am always appreciative of any and all love/feedback that I get from you all. I’m super excited for this step in my life and can’t wait to see where it takes me. Hopefully you guys will be there with me every step of the way and we’ll make something big out of this one day.
