What interested me in her blog? Flawless Style. So check out Tierra Powell’s interview below!
1.Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Well, I like to say that I am a southern girl with a midwest swing. Lol. I am originally from a small town in Illinois and moved around a lot due to being a military brat but when everything was settled Georgia became my home away from home. I am 20 something going on 30 something in a few years, quality specialist and student by day and blogger by night. I love old fashion cookouts, traveling to new places and old, trying to new food and enjoying life.
2.Take us through a typical day in your life?
A typical Monday – Friday day isn’t very exciting. Lol. I wake up at 5:15 am and I do a little meditation and prayer to start my day for about 15 mins. Then I get ready for work, pack my lunch and breakfast and I’m out the door no later than 6:15am. I work from 7:30 – 4:45 as a quality specialist for a major insurance company. Once I’m off depending on the day I’m either on my way to Starbucks to do homework (I’m currently getting my bachelors) or I could be heading off to take blog photos or going to the gym or just relaxing. Afterwards it’s home for dinner and getting ready to do it all over again.
3.Can you tell us about your blog, and what inspired you to start it?
My blog is baby. It is a plus size fashion blog that I use to encourage all women to love themselves no matter their size and to be the best they can be. I was actually inspired by my mom and honestly random ladies I would run into. My
My mom is my heart and my number 1 supporter and she always encourages me to follow my dreams. Random ladies would tell me how good I looked and how they wished they knew how to dress so I decided that I wanted to help those ladies.
4.How would you describe your own personal style?
My own personal style is definitely sporty with a comfortable foundation and a chic twist. I love my tennis shoes but can also rock a heel. I love a good blazer, good jean jacket, good midi skirt and nice jeans. I’m classic.
5.What do you think will be the next big hit fashion wise for next season?
Fashion is ever-evolving and I hate to say it but I’m not as trendy as most but I think the next big host fashion wise will be those dang sparkly boots that Rihanna had on by YSL I believe. I also think velour is making a comeback. Don’t tell anybody I said that though…lol.
6.What are some of your current fashion obsessions?
My current fashion obsessions are Converse sneakers, patches (like on jackets), loose fitting t-shirts, rompers (yes I still wear a good romper) and sunglasses.
7.What is your top style tip?
My top style tip is always to make sure you have a good foundation. Yes, I am one of those bloggers. I believe in good bras, good underwear, and shapewear if needed. You want to look smooth and crisp in your clothing, at least I do.
8.Where do you see your blog in the next five years?
In the next five years, I am believing that my blog will be my major money maker. I want to blog full time and work part time if need be. I also plan to incorporate some other things into my blog such as my love for travel and good food.
9.Who inspires you?
My mom and my whole family inspire me. They believe in me and always push me to be better especially my mom. She is my best friend. I don’t know what I would do without her and my family, I love them so much.
10.What do you want your legacy to be? How do you want to be remembered?
I want to be remembered as the strong black women who was kindhearted, caring, giving, a great role model who remained humble but slain every time she stepped on the sense.
