    My platform at Happily Ever Style focuses on sharing slow fashion and sustainable skincare brands, as well as mindful traveling. I'm learning how to live slower and I encourage my followers to join me on that journey. I also like to support and highlight brands that give back to the community so that we can together do good through our love for fashion and beauty.

      How do you use your platform to support and give back to your community?

      On all platforms I am completely transparent and do not gate keep! I always tell my followers that they can reach out anytime for anything (no BS!). For giving back I do help raise money for NEDA which is an organization that helps those who struggle with eating disorders and from time to time I'll give out little treat yourself Starbuck gifts cards on my Instagram stories! 

      What does Women’s History Month mean to you?

      Women’s Month means so much to me, it means supporting my peers, and empowering ladies (which I try to do through my content)! 

      What is your secret to success?

      My secret to success is being myself and persevering no matter what (HUSTLING!)

        Dahvi is a West Hollywood, CA-based writer and editor, with a passion for all things hair and beauty. When she’s not in the bathroom trying new products or playing with her curling iron, she enjoys working out, staying on top of TikTok trends, trying new restaurants and drinking coffee (lots of it) she says!

        How do you use your platform to support and give back to your community

        I'm always supporting small businesses and new female-led product launches. I use Instagram in particular as a way to showcase what my female peers have either physically developed or curated in some way, like a big event, for example. I consider myself a cheerleader for other women doing great things.

        What does Women’s History Month mean to you?

         To me, International Women's Month means celebrating what makes me proud to be a woman. Whether it's embracing my femininity, or championing powerful women around me, it's truly soaking in being a female and acknowledging why it's so meaningful.

         What is your secret to success?

        Hard work is always key. Someone can open a door for you, but it's your job to keep it open. Respect and professionalism are also imperative to success. Every career bubble is small - you never want to burn bridges. You truly never know what will come back to haunt you or who could end up being your boss or superior! As long as someone is doing their job effectively and efficiently, never treat them like they're below you. Carry yourself in the workplace as someone others aspire to be. Be a leader, not a follower. 

        -What message do you want to share with your community this Women’s History Month?

        It's 2022! Things are less competitive and more collaborative. I'm all for supporting other women doing great things, with the hopes that the support is mutual. Women coming together creates a force. I always say if someone got to the top fairly, I'll never look down upon their success.

          How do you use your platform to support and give back to your community:

           I love showing others that their curly hair is beautiful! I grew up hating my hair just because it wasn't up to par with the beauty standards of having straight hair. From the age of 10 until my late 20s, I was constantly straightening it with chemicals and heat to hide my curls. I want others to know that their hair is beautiful and there are ways of managing it while embracing their beautiful curls.

          What does Women’s History Month mean to you?

           International Women’s Month is a time to celebrate women and all of their amazing accomplishments and contributions to society.

           What is your secret to success? 

          The word Success can have so many different meanings to people. And I believe success starts with loving yourself.

          What message do you want to share with your community this International Women’s Month?

          I want everyone to know that they should be proud of how far they have come. We all experience challenges everyday, but we choose not to give up.

          In addition to helping people feel less alone, I raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer's Association. I hold Alzheimers very close to my heart, as my incredible mother passed from it, so I won’t stop fighting until they find a cure. She’s the most important woman in my life. May she Rest In Prada!!!
