Social Diary | Goodwill + eightWest, Grand Rapids, MI

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

I'm starting November with a BANG! This week, I had my first TV debut on local talk show, eightWest on WoodTV. Thanks to my collaboration with Goodwill, I had the opportunity to talk about the blog + my new Style Consultation business! 

First of all, I want to thank Terri Deboer, Rachael Ruiz, + Jordan Carson {the hosts of eightWest pictured above}, Jill Wallace + Lynda Schmich of Goodwill, + ALL OF YOU! I received so much love and support from family + friends + followers via social media. That has made me feel like I am going in the right direction with my blog and business venture.

This actually hasn't been my first time on tv. During my first week at a new job, they had a television segment + I was a model for their jewelry. This time around, it was all about me, + that was pretty nerve wrecking! You think it would be easy to talk about yourself, + I found myself practicing alone throughout the week to make sure everything sounded perfect. Fortunately, I had Lynda with me to cheer me on + support me AND the ladies of eightWest made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process! {Oh + thank you to one of my blogger besties, Thamarr of Musings of a Curvy Lady! She gave me such good advice about being myself + letting my personality shine!}

Of course, along with the perfect content for the interview, I had to have the PERFECT daytime television look! I had a few options lined up, but the outfit that I chose was the best fit. I wanted to make sure that it was professional + streamlined, while showcasing my outgoing personality + love of prints! {Another shoutout to another blogger babe, Telly of Telly Loves Fashion for giving me a second opinion via Snapchat for my final look!}

In case you missed it, definitely check out my segment here! There is also an article about my services and partnership with Goodwill. I will also have a more detailed post about my Style Consultation services, a long with testimonials + an inside look at experiences with my clients! If you are interested in a Closet Consultation, Personal Styling, or a Style Party by yours truly, contact me via email or click the contact button on my Instagram account to book your appointment. Here are a few more photos below from the day + I can't wait to join eightWest + Goodwill AGAIN for their December segment/show! Stay tuned!
