FashionLayn takes on Curvy Girl Conference

Dream Big CurvyGirl & Beauty Conference

Chicago, IL


Hey yall!

I am back from Chi town ! I had such a great time at the Curvy Girl Conference last weekend.  It was one day conference  at Morgan’s on Fulton. It was a newly develop area of Chicago. A Lyft driver told me the area used to be the old meat packing area. Anywho, I learn so many things at the conference. First, this one of the first Midwest Conference for top bloggers and influences so that was plus. It was put together my Natasha E. Williams, the owner of The Curvy Express. The purpose of the conference was to educate new bloggers like me, in addition inspiring models and beauty bloggers. It was a time that curvy girls of the Midwest could come together empower, build relationships, and network.  The first conference I ever attended  as a blogger and it was amazing. SO Amazing !!

Since I was prestige attendee I had a few perks. The best perk out of them all was the Rooftop Panel Discussion with Hayet Rida,  a successful blogger, influencer and brand ambassador in Chicago.  Alongside her was Qiana Allen (CEO Curve Culture), Vunzai Yeazel (CEO Gorgeous Within), Yvonne Wallace( Make artist and Hair Stylist) and David Sanchez (10 Management Model Agency). They all spoke so well and took from them all is to not get caught up in the numbers. Yes the number of followers is currency but are you really making a impact, are people really listening to your voice. I also learn to improve my “hustle muscle strength”. You have to learn how to hustle hard when you are building your own brand. Don’t wait for other to confirm just get out and do it. That what I can say about me. I did know much about blogging at all but I’ve learned and definitely seen growth. Be secure with your self.

We also had a class on 10 ways to branding yourself successfully. I learn that you should list a least five things that your passionate about. I listed <3 Detroit, Favorite Color Blue, Fashion, sunglasses, and self care. In addition, make sure you try to tell a story.
