Beatriz Adrianna founded LiveLoveWearIt – a fashion, lifestyle, and all things people love blog. It features personal style, fashion, beauty, interior inspiration, lifestyle, travel, videos, and more. This blog is created for a daily dose of inspiration, highlighting our slogan to “Live it, Love it, Wear it.”
What motivated and inspired you to start your own business?
Fashion has always been a huge part of me. I would document my outfits on both polaroid and digital cameras and save them in albums. I was obsessed with taking photos as a kid. One day, when I took a trip to Australia and realized I was not wanting to pursue the performing arts anymore, I explored more in depth the blogger/social media industry (I was so focused in the performing arts I didn’t really know about this growing industry).
Once I opened my eyes, I couldn’t believe how much of a perfect fit this was for me! I wanted to inspire people through beautifully curated and creative content. To inspire through Fashion, Lifestyle, and most importantly self-confidence. That’s when I decided to pursue my brand. As my slogan goes, “Live it, Love it, Wear it.”
