GIRLPOWER series| Seyi Famuyiwa

Beautiful minds inspire others! Ever since I found the In Fashion I Trust blog, it has truly inspired me in lots of ways. Seyi’s blog looks like art, like a piece of an editorial and I absolutely love that uniqueness about her blog. Hopefully today you guys also get some inspiration from Seyi and her blog. Besides, don’t you just love  discovering new bloggers to follow, I sure do!
1. Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog? 
My name is Seyi Famuyiwa and I am the creator of In Fashion I Trust blog. I started blogging as a hobby mid-2012, but in September 2016, I decided to turn it into a full time gig, dedicating much more time and effort into creating valuable content for the readers that stop by. I’m Nigerian-American. Born in Nigeria, but I call Los Angeles, California my home.
2. How would you describe your blogging style? 
I don’t really give my blogging a “style” per say. I have been more intentional about writing content that is much more impactful than just talking about where I got something from. Also, I am very passionate about my blackness and my womanhood and I make it a point to be very direct with those topics on both my blog and social media. I’ve recently made my posts more editorial looking. I love creating things so switching it my posts up in this aspect has allowed my creative juices to flow more.
 3. When did you first get into blogging and what inspired you? 
As mentioned above I started back in 2012. I started because I was looking for a full-time job and was bored in between submitting job applications haha. I’ve always enjoyed dressing up and I remember people would ask me more often than not where I got my clothes from so a blog seemed the “natural” way to go.
 
4. How do you manage time to run your blog efficiently? 
JOURNALING! I journal everything. From what outfits/content I plan to shoot with my photographer (@thedreamingrebelle), to when I plan to post it. I give everything dates to keep me on schedule. I write out the posts before hand and save them in drafts so that way once I have the edited images from my photographer, I can upload immediately to the post and save the draft. 
 
 
5. What has been the most challenging moment in your blogging journey so far? 
Being patient. patient with the journey and understanding that I am going at my own pace. That I need to really refrain from comparison (something I am still working on to be completely honest) and be ok with where I’m at in this process. Also understanding that I do not have to wait to get to a certain level to make an impact through my blog.
 
6. Have you met anyone interesting on your blogging journey. If so, please tell us about the encounter? 
Hmmmm. I mean I’ve met some amazing individuals for sure! I’m all about community and I’ve come across the most wonderful group of black bloggers who are all about supporting and lifting each other up.
 
7. How would you describe your personal style and is there someone who is a fashion inspiration to you? 
I would say my personal style is a mixture of structure and flow with clean cuts. Blush and mauve-y pinks are my faves. White and black will forever be my go to because of ease.  
Is it bad to say I’m my own inspiration hahaha. But really, if you don’t toot your own horn, who will? But I do love Solange’s style…everything she has on always screams effortless chic
 
8. What would you say that is the greatest satisfaction of being a fashion blogger? (Invitations to fashion events, interaction with people, etc.) 
The opportunity to interact with people on the daily + share moments of myself with them
 
 
9. Could you give some advice for the newbie fashion bloggers in the house? 
Go hard or go home. But also, be yourself. Be open and authentic with people. Don’t try and follow a formula to success because in my opinion, there isn’t one set way to do this blogging thing. Find your niche and work the hell out of it
 
10. Please include any social media links you want included in the post!

I absolutely agree with Seyi on Journaling. It’s the absolute best thing you and do for your blog, personal life, everything! I still sometimes have issues with procrastination and then I forget the ideas I’m supposed to write and that’s why it’s always a good idea to journal as soon as an idea pops into your head!
Who else journals everything? Send me an email or comment below any one who has inspired you that you’d like to see featured on the GIRLPOWER section!
