Why I do What I do:
My name is Rachel, and I'm a fashion lover.
This love for fashion led me to open my own boutique mid-2014. It's called Demure, and you can find it under the "SHOP" tab. I love it deeply! However, even with a clothing store I could call my own, my desire for a life of fashion wasn't satisfied... I got to buy fabulous merchandise to make others feel beautiful, but I felt limited to only being able to share my own products... I love ALL fashion, not just my own!
I needed a way to be able to share all the beautiful things with the world! Thus, A Demure Life was born!! Now, I get to share EVERYTHING I love, with you!!
THIS IS TRULY A DREAM COME TRUE FOR ME! It's something I always imagined doing; its "what I want to do when I grow up." Though, until I started, I didn't even know it was a real thing. I wanted to do it, but didn't know I could... If that makes sense? Surprisingly enough, in the 21st century, influencer marketing is a real, full-time job for people. Blogging is actually a way that people make a living, and I love that!! However, no matter how hard I try or how long I work, it literally wouldn't be possible without each and every one of YOU!!
You need to know that some of the items that I talk about on this blog are sent to me complimentary, and sometimes I'm even paid to deliver my thoughts and reviews on them; however, please know that all of the thoughts and opinions that I publish here are 100% my own! Likewise, most of the links on this site are affiliate links, meaning that I may receive a commission off of any sale procured after clicking. And THAT is why I need you! I need you to read my posts, follow me on social media, engage with my content, subscribe to my newsletter, share what you love about my little corner of the internet with your friends and family, and make your purchases of things I share via MY links! Doing so will allow me to grow this little blog, and to be compensated for all of the hard work that I do, while also letting brands that I'm working with, or hope to some day, know that I really am good at what I do! So, if I am your influence to purchase your new favorite pair of shoes, please allow me the credit of the sale. It costs you nothing extra, but allows me to keep doing what I'm doing!! Not only that, using my links allows me to see the statistics of what I'm doing right, and lets me know what I need to change to be better!
Because I rely on you so strongly to make this blog-dream a reality, I PROMISE to never let you down on my end either!! I promise to tell you the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I promise to only share items I truly love, that are quality, classy, and valuable. I promise to only promote companies I trust and truly believe in! I always keep in mind that, if you can't trust me, then my blog is worthless! So you can trust that I will work tirelessly to only deliver quality content to you!! I want my word to be worth something! Remember, you are my most valuable asset, and that gives you all the power, so please use it for good :)
More About ME:
I'm 27 years old. My husband, Blake, & I have been married for almost 5 years now! We don't have an kids, and our eventual goal is actually to adopt, not to have any of our own. My dad was adopted, so its very important to me!! I graduated college from the University of South Carolina with a B.S. in Biology. I worked as a Chemist for a few years, but I knew from the start that it really wasn't for me! I got my real estate license in 2017 and am now a part-time real estate assistant! Blake and I also have a couple of rental properties and like to rehab houses for fun LOL! Because of that, I've recently started sharing more renovation posts and a bunch of home decor!! I love nothing more than a great before & after picture!! There's nothing better than a drastic transformation!! I'm really into preppy, feminine style and share a new pair of shoes each week. So, if you're a shoe lover, then I'm your girl!! I love to shop at J Crew, Loft, Target, H&M, and ASOS, and Old Navy. I'm pretty bubbly and kind of nice LOL! I can literally talk to anyone!! In fact, there's a "contact" tab at the bottom of the page... Shoot me an email sometime! I can pretty much talk about anything fashion, house rehabbing, business ownership, home decor, or fur baby related LOL! I'm really glad you're here, and I hope you stay!
XOXO - Rachel
