Today is an exciting day because I’m going to be revealing my very first collab and introducing you all to a longtime friend of mine who also happens to be a blogger! If you read my Life Update | stepping back, COVID-19, new project, upcoming collab?, you knew this was coming!
Jasmen and I have been friends since I was 14 years old. We both went to Harris County High School and met when I was a freshman and she was a sophomore. We were in the same theatre class, and what we didn’t know is that a random conversation about a guy I was interested in at the time would be the reason we first speak to each other, but our similar personalities and shared interests would connect us forever.
Speaking of shared interests, much like myself, Jasmen has always loved writing, taking photos, and sharing bits and pieces of her life with the world, which prompted her to start her blog, jasmenvictoriaxpression.com. Fun fact: we both studied English in college, so it was quite natural for us to start a platform that allows us to utilize our passion.
Jasmen’s blog focuses on entertainment, health, and lifestyle. She has done fun and entertaining blog posts such as, Katherine Pierce vs. Elena Gilbert and I Was Vampire Bait in Mystic Falls (if you’re a fan of The Vampire Diaries (TVD), you’ll love those!), but she has also been extremely open and transparent on this blogging journey. She has opened up about what it’s like living with ulcerative colitis, a chronic inflammatory disease, as well as overcoming the impact of being the toxic one in her relationship in what are probably two of her most popular and most read posts: Young, Healthy, and Living with Ulcerative Colitis and When You’re the Toxic One in Your Relationship.
While Jasmen’s niche is completely different from mine, we’ve always bonded over our love for writing, fashion, and photography, and I just knew we could not pass up the opportunity to do a collab that involves all of those things. Honestly, I couldn’t imagine doing my very first collab with anyone else.
We originally had a fun fashion challenge planned for you guys, but because all the clothing stores are closed due to Covid-19, we unfortunately had to put that on hold. We will hopefully be able to do that sometime in the near future.
I hope you guys will enjoy what we’ve decided to do instead, but of course, you’ll have to tune in next week to see what it is. Be sure to subscribe to both mine and Jasmen’s blog. We’ll be doing a collab for her blog as well. Also, be sure to follow her personal IG here as well as her blog IG here.
