FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS

Keep smiling, because the greatest things in life happen when you least expect it. I cannot believe I have had my Instagram page for two years! I wanted to share with you what motivated me to start my  page two years ago. 





In August of 2014, I decided to start my Fashion/Beauty Instagram page (@gverastyle)! I had my second son Derek in June of 2014 and was on maternity leave. He was such a good baby and slept a lot. In my free time I would look at all these Instagram fashion pages and since I have always been into fashion myself, I decided to start my own. 

The biggest thing to keeping up with my Instagram page was to tell myself that this is my hobby. I started posting about 4 pictures a week and now I post just about everyday. As my page started growing, I started getting emails from different companies that wanted to collaborate with me. It's exciting to work with all kinds of companies, but I always make sure it fits my style. Some times I do take a few days off. It's all about balancing your life. Timing is every thing. I was able to save enough money to buy an iMac, which is why I started my blog this month. I never put pressure on myself. I do this because I love sharing my outfits with you. I try to take one day during the week to work on my Blog. Being a mother of two boys keeps me busy! I have to say that I am very happy how my blog pictures turned out. I have an awesome photographer. Thank you Tammy for taking my pictures, you are an AMAZING photographer. I am starting to learn more about photography before I decide to purchase a camera. This year has taken off for me, from having my picture featured on The Wendy Williams show to getting invited to events in LA. If you have been following me on Snapchat (@gverastyle4) and Instagram for a while then you know I am a big fan of The Bachelor! I even got my husband to watch it with me.  lol!! I never thought this page would bring opportunities like these. I got to meet 5 guys Jared, JJ, Nick Viall, Chris Soules, and Ben Zorn.  Here are some pictures:



This is Ben Zorn (Bachelorette Season 11), and he is my favorite! I wasn't wearing the cutest outfit because it was unexpected. My hubby brought me to L.A. for my birthday weekend, and the event was that day. I thought I could buy a cute outfit there, but the BOOHOO store was just in L.A as a pop up shop!  


This is Jared, he is on this season's Bachelor in Paradise. He was such a nice guy which is why a lot girls are crazy about him.


Just a few weeks ago,  I was invited to my first Red Carpet event! I'm so happy I was able to make it with my friend Alejandra. It was an unforgettable girls trip. We even got to hike the trail to the Hollywood sign. Thank you Alejandra for all your support, I could not ask for a better friend.



Thank you at Nail Garden for having me! 


I want to thank each and everyone of you for following me through this exciting journey. My husband, who is very supportive. He takes most of my pictures, and I am very lucky to have him. I love you babe! I am very greatful for all of your support and sweet comments. It definitely keeps me motivated. I love you all! 


XOXO

WELCOME TO MY BLOG

    My name is Gabriela Vera and I'm 31 years old. I was born on April 8, 1985 in Acapulco, Mexico. I moved to the United States when I was 4 years old. I speak fluent Spanish. I got married in September 2009 to my best friend Jesse. We met my first year in college and now have two boys. My first son was born on January 11, 2011, and we named him Darren. My second was born on June 23, 2014 and named him Derek! I've always wanted two kids and I was blessed with two boys. They changed our world forever and I would not have it any other way!
