3 Bloggers Who Have Made A Name For Themselves

Your hard work will pay off.


The world of blogging has significantly increased since the launch of Instagram. It is hard to believe that one can make a career out of just posting their OOTD. In addition to their blog, bloggers typically have a full-time job in hopes that one day their hard work and dedication will pay off, and for some it has. From starting off in a non-blogging job to landing deals with some of the biggest names in the industry these bloggers have successfully accomplished every blogger's dream.

1. Something Navy: Arielle Charnas

Something Navy started up back in 2009 leaving her career in psychology. Arielle Charnas started her blog due to the fact that her current boyfriend at the time found women that started their own business attractive. Fast forward a couple years later and Charnas and her boyfriend break up but she was already on track into building an empire. She was able to transform her blog into a lifestyle brand. With the help of social media, Charnas quickly became one of the most well-known influencers in the industry. She recently launched her clothing brand "Something Navy" with Nordstrom bringing in over $1 million in the first 24 hours of the launch.

2. The Blonde Salad: Chiara Ferragni

The Blonde Salad by Chiara Ferragni started in 2009. Just two years after the start of her blog Ferragni was named one of the biggest influencers of the year. With her unique style and love for fashion, Chiara Ferragni became someone that everyone wished to work with. She got the opportunity to work with big brands like Guess and even collaborated with Steve Madden to design a shoe collection. By opening her first Chiara Ferragni collection store in Milan, she continues to grow her business and to be one of the most influential individuals in the fashion world.

3. Song of Style: Aimee Song

With the initial intent of starting an interior design blog, Aimee Song quickly changed her blog to a lifestyle one after receiving such a positive response to an outfit shot. As a full-time student, working and blogging, Song was able to overcome every obstacle and follow her dreams as a blogger while still having a career in interior design. Not only has Song been successful with her personal jewelry and apparel brands but just like Ferragni and Charnas she has had the opportunity to work with well-known brands like Levi, Giorgio Armani, Dior and Laura Mercier which earned her half a million dollars.

These bloggers are just some examples that hard work really does pay off. Everyone starts off at the bottom but if you put in hard work you'll be able to achieve your dreams.

The Truth About Young Marriage

Different doesn't mean wrong.

When I was a kid, I had an exact picture in my mind of what my life was going to look like. I was definitely not the kind of girl who would get married young, before the age of 25, at least.

And let me tell you, I was just as judgmental as that sentence sounds.

I could not wrap my head around people making life-long commitments before they even had an established life. It’s not my fault that I thought this way, because the majority opinion about young marriage in today’s society is not a supportive one. Over the years, it has become the norm to put off marriage until you have an education and an established career. Basically, this means you put off marriage until you learn how to be an adult, instead of using marriage as a foundation to launch into adulthood.

When young couples get married, people will assume that you are having a baby, and they will say that you’re throwing your life away — it’s inevitable.

It’s safe to say that my perspective changed once I signed my marriage certificate at the age of 18. Although marriage is not always easy and getting married at such a young age definitely sets you up for some extra challenges, there is something to be said about entering into marriage and adulthood at the same time.

Getting married young does not mean giving up your dreams. It means having someone dream your dreams with you. When you get lost along the way, and your dreams and goals seem out of reach, it’s having someone there to point you in the right direction and show you the way back. Despite what people are going to tell you, it definitely doesn’t mean that you are going to miss out on all the experiences life has to offer. It simply means that you get to share all of these great adventures with the person you love most in the world.

And trust me, there is nothing better than that. It doesn’t mean that you are already grown up, it means that you have someone to grow with.

You have someone to stick with you through anything from college classes and changing bodies to negative bank account balances.

You have someone to sit on your used furniture with and talk about what you want to do and who you want to be someday.

Then, when someday comes, you get to look back on all of that and realize what a blessing it is to watch someone grow. Even after just one year of marriage, I look back and I am incredibly proud of my husband. I’m proud of the person he has become, and I’m proud of what we have accomplished together. I can’t wait to see what the rest of our lives have in store for us.

“You can drive at 16, go to war at 18, drink at 21, and retire at 65. So who can say what age you have to be to find your one true love?" — One Tree Hill

To The High School Senior Wishing She Could Fast-Forward To Graduation, Careful What You Wish For

Don't wish this time away.


As the last stretch of my freshman year of college stands before me, I've been thinking a lot about where I was a year ago today. I've thought about how fast the time has gone, but also how much has happened in that year.

A year ago, I decided what college I was going to and was getting ready to graduate, and honestly counting down the days until graduation. Senior year was almost over, and I couldn't wait to walk across that stage, get my diploma, and FINALLY get to start my real life. However, now that it's a year later I honestly barely remember all those little moments and it feels like literally a world ago when I was in my high school and making my Senior Board full of pictures of my childhood. And part of me wishes that I hadn't wished all that time away.

So, to my high school seniors out there — I encourage you to cherish all the memories you are making. I encourage you to spend time with your parents and savor the meals you have with them and enjoy the conversations where your mom asks all the mom questions about your day, and your dad tells a story from his childhood that you've heard a million times before. I encourage you to appreciate the friends you have, and whether or not you plan to stay friends with them after graduation, be grateful for the time with them in this season and the role that they played in your life.

I ask you to look around your high school, stop and stare at the walls that you've probably been praying to get out of for a few months now and appreciate the memories and times you've had in those buildings. Whether or not high school was a great time for you or a bad time, it was a time of growth and the place where you matured and made mistakes and succeeded.

Seniors, enjoy these last few months because before you know it you'll blink and it will be a year later and you'll be miss those days that you complained about, those teachers you rolled your eyes at, and those friends that you shared that time with.
