Sweet Peek of the Week - Veronika of Girl and Closet

Today we have the pleasure of getting to know another blogger for our sweet peek.  She is a freelance photographer who lives in a small ocean town with her husband, beloved pup, and one chubby orange kitty but most of you know her as Veronika of Girl and Closet.  I am so excited to jump in and ask her our Fast Five!


Thank you so much Veronika for taking the time to answer our questions!  Can you tell us a little bit more about your blog, Girl and Closet?
  
"Yes, I’d love to. Girl & Closet is a personal style blog, where I share my daily outfits with my amazingly sweet and lovely readers. I also share tid-bits about my ocean-side town, married life and my career & entrepreneurial life. I couldn’t be more thrilled with my decision to start my blog; it’s been so incredible connecting with people from all over the world and making new friends - so fun!"

Isn't it the best?  What continues to inspire you and your blogging?

"Definitely my family, husband & friends; they are all so amazingly supportive, and I wouldn’t be the same person without them. They have always been so encouraging and positive, which has helped me flourish immensely. Secondly, my passion for business and fashion are what get me out of bed every morning, and (eep!) help me pull those 14 hour days. The secret to a great job is to find something where you don’t feel like you’re working."



It's so wonderful when you love what you do!  Have you had to face many obstacles?

"Oh my goodness, more than I can count. Without getting too personal, I’ve had to overcome some health problems in the last few years, and certainly growing a business from the ground up can also feel like a huge obstacle. But for me, that's what keeps life interesting & exciting. I love growing as a person!"


Health issues can test any person's strength... how did you remain so strong?

"By surrounding myself with lots of love & positivity, as well as connecting to a life and career that gives me meaning and sense of purpose. I believe in setting realistic plans/goals, maintaining a positive attitude and a persistent spirit. I’m also a firm believer in taking charge of your life because nobody else will do it for you. I remind myself of that all the time."


That is great advice to give yourself.  We all should!  Have any words of advice, before you go, for those of us chasing our dreams?

"Don’t be afraid to aim high and take risks... even if you don’t make it all the way to the top, you’ll make it a lot further than if you hadn’t tried at all!" 


I have been telling myself this exact thing all year thus far!  Thank you so much Veronika for sharing your beautiful answers with us!  May your journey continue to be beautiful and your passions thrive!  We look forward to seeing a lot more of you in the future!  

Love & Lollies...

  9. Oh I love Veronika. One of the main reasons, aside from her adorable style and personality, is because we have the same name. Spelled the same way and everything! I have never met another Veronika before. :) I just go by the nickname that my family gave me at birth, so I only use my actual name in professional settings or it's used when I'm in trouble with the hubby. hehehe!
    Great post, Jessa!
