“Diamonds may be a woman’s best friend, but trends are a woman’s best friend for life” is the Best Trends For Life motto. Best Trends For Life is a fashion blog I founded which showcases product reviews for trendy, independent brands. I created the blog as an outlet for myself and as a way to inspire other women to harness their inner fashionista.
Best Trends For Life has given me an outlet for two of my deepest passions; photography and fashion. Throughout grade school, I spent hours each night putting together and perfecting my outfits for the next day. In high school is when I started to take up photography. My father, a photography enthusiast, taught me all he knew about film and digital cameras. Photography became not only a hobby, but also a way for my father and I to bond over a shared love for the art of photography.
As I transitioned into college life, I found myself having very little time for both of these passions. Being pre med at UPenn, seemed to take up all of most of my time, and I felt like I did not have any outlet or hobby that I was particularly excited about anymore. At the beginning of my junior year, I took the initiative to make more time for my interests in photography and fashion. I joined UPenn Her Campus as a style blogger, where I photographed and wrote about fashionable outfits I spotted around campus. However, when I started my senior year, I recognized that I would not be able to continue with Her Campus come graduation. And so, I decided to create my own fashion blog, so that I would have something to take with me and continue with after my graduation from Penn. From this desire stemmed the creation of Best Trends For Life.
