Hi! I’m Donna
Hi there! I'm not even sure where to begin! First off, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for visiting my blog. This is a neverending journey, and after many contemplations of whether or not I should continue to blog, I'm so happy that I always kept it because I knew that one day I would revisit it and give it 100% of my time. Keep on reading to read my entire story!
Early Career + A little history
In 2009, the entire intention to create DonnaDaily.com was to be a place where I could place all of my writing clips in one place; I started off my career as a curious and ambitious reporter, covering all things trends and fashion. Take a peek at my editorial portfolio, here! Even though my initial intention was for it to be a safe haven for all of my work, it became something so much more creative. I discovered that you could actually write other things on the blog and not just share links and clips to pieces of my work. That was really cool. So, I went with the flow (story of my life!) and it led me to so many incredible opportunities I didn't even dream of! One of them included hosting my own web show on YouTube with Kmart Fashion!
After I finished grad school at Columbia University, I took a leap of faith and reported for so many incredible magazines and TV stations until I landed my first gig at Brides Magazine as a social media manager. After that, I went on to do more digital journalism at more magazines and startups. Needless to say, I didn’t have much time for myself and my blog.
So, after my frenetic twenties were over, I decided I wanted to resurrect my website- it was a big goal for me when I turned 30. I decided that I want to start writing content that speaks true to my heart: REAL lifestyle tips on how to be a healthier you, restoring self-love, eating foods to make you more beautiful internally and externally, and sprinkle in the fun fashion and beauty content. Thank you always for being on this ride with me.
