Welcome to my very first blog post! This is definitely a moment to cherish, and acknowledge, as I am the type of person who will do anything to AVOID writing. You might be asking yourself why I'm telling you all of this? Because I want you to know the real me -- the true face behind Leia Beila. The fact is I am not perfect, and sitting down to write a blog post has literally taken me over a year to do. But that's exactly some of the content I want to share with you during my blogging journey. Not only the high points, seasonal trends, style tips, and behind the scenes moments... but most importantly who I am and what Leia Beila stands for! Leia Beila is an honest brand, and I want to bring light into all of your worlds through my jewelry.
I create jewelry for the modern badass woman. Jewelry that is an extension of the body and mind. For the ladies who desire fashion that is unconventional, and who crave being different. I want to empower and build up women with the pieces that I make. This is more than just designing pretty things -- this is a lifestyle, and I am proud of it. Making people feel confident and absolutely stunning in my jewelry is the greatest feeling in the world to me.
This year has been a doozy so far. I started working for myself full time, and let me tell you... it is not an easy road! This has been one of the most emotional years of my life. One minute I'm up and the next I'm down. All in all I am naturally a very positive person, but becoming your own boss is new to me and the growing pains are real, my friends! On the other side of things -- It has truly been an amazing experience that I am so thankful for. I am learning a lot about myself. Not only as a person, but most importantly as a boss lady. *Cue the sappy music*
So why did it take me so long to sit down and write a blog post? I could dive into the workings of my inner child and go even deeper into the psychology of it all... but that's boring and we all know the biggest reason: I WAS AFRAID. Mostly, I think I wanted to write something intriguing and cool. Something that would grab everyones attention. I built it up in my head and let it take over. Ok, so my first post is not what I expected, and I love that! I guess in the end I really just wanted to introduce myself. I am Aimee. I am Leia Beila. I'm excited to show you the workings of the jewelry I make, and what this brand is all about! Thank you for taking the time to read this.
