ABOUT THE BLOG
Style Optimist is a personal style, lifestyle, and Natural Hair blog that caters to millennial women with hopes to inspire women to embrace their personal style with confidence and authenticity because she believes in living your best life. Through this space, she hopes to share her personal style that’s affordable & attainable, beauty tips, her curly hair journey, as well as tips for other curly girls. Jewel has a passion for travel, so the occasional travel post may appear among a myriad of things in which she is passionate about that’s not limited to fitness, health, home décor.
Jewel began blogging in 2011 during her final year of graduate school as a creative outlet, and means of exploring her personal style, while connecting with like minded women.
Having started blogging has a hobby, not knowing what this space on the internet would become, she began to connect with bloggers and brands where she would later form relationships.
In September of 2014, Jewel embarked on a journey to embrace her naturally curly textured hair. “ONE year ago, today, I grabbed a pair of scissors and cut off what some would consider ‘all that good hair’. It was probably one of the best decisions I’ve made in a while. To think that living life as my authentic self could inspire others to embrace their natural textured hair.”
A lover of life and people, Jewel has a passion for helping others. During the day, she works as a therapist, (working towards licensure) working with children with Emotional Disturbance. Thanks so much for stopping by. Come visit again soon.
