I'm a Midwest gal with sweet Southern Charm! 

A native of Kansas City, Missouri, I now call Dallas Texas home and I love exploring all that the city has to offer.  

As a trusted Influencer known for my lifestyle savvy, I created Orchid Bleu. My Lifestyle Blog is dedicated to women embracing the fabulous in their everyday living.  

I am the Founder and President of the North Texas Black Bloggers Association, a community of minority bloggers who inspire, educate and motivate one other while successfully curating their own blogs and brands.

I enjoy helping others in their pursuit of blogging and building their brand. I host events for bloggers, influencers and creators alike and plan to do more in the future.  

Providing fresh and thoughtful content is what I'm all about. I enjoy collaborating with other creatives and I'm always on the lookout for great contributors. 

My blogging adventures have led to successful partnerships with national auto manufacturers, local community organizations and some of Dallas’ premier dining locations. 

Have any questions? Wanna work with me? I'd love to hear from you! I can be reached via email at danyel@orchidbleu.com
