She Makes Me Wanna - Be Fly

I love meeting people online, especially new female friends. I think connecting with people through social networking allows you to really see if you have things in common. And there's a certain level of authenticity that you feel from reading the blogs and online posts of others. When I saw Princess Dominique on Twitter, I had a feeling she was my type of woman! She is this great writer with a mean shoe game and is really into supporting the efforts of other women attempting to follow their dreams! Additionally and equally important, she has a sense of wanting to do her part to make this world a better place. She is extremely passionate about domestic abuse and doesn't make any qualms about it throughout her blog. She offers numerous tips, giveaways and other fashion advice that make me stop and take notice. I was even fortunate enough to be featured as a Stylista of the Week on her site! Princess Dominique makes me want to be fly, check out her story to see why!


NAME: Linda "Princess Dominique" Grosvenor
AGE: 40something
HOMETOWN: Bronx, New York


EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND: Currently pursuing a Masters in Counseling

OCCUPATION: My job is two fold, I am a full time writer who is also in ministry with my husband who teaches singles and married people how to love better via our website www.ThePluralThing.com and I also split my time with keeping hundreds of thousands and soon prayerfully millions of people how to have style without breaking the bank via my website www.PrincessDominique.com. The website caters to both men and women and dabbles in fashion, beauty as well as home decor.

AS A CHILD WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP: When I was a child I wanted to be a stewardess. I think that's what they called them back then. That's what I wanted to be because they wore the flyest uniforms and I figured if I got to wear that every day, then I'd have a job that I simply loved, but before I got a chance to grow up, I fell in love with poetry and the love of writing got its hooks into me good. I've published poetry, fiction and now that I'm writing strictly books that assist people with having better relationships and satisfying my love of fashion via my website, I've never been happier.

DO YOU LOVE WHAT YOU DO: I am absolutely thrilled by what I do. They say if you do what you love it will never feel like work, and it doesn't. I find myself looking up at the clock and it's 4pm. My only down days are days when my Internet signal acts funny, other than that I enjoy discovering really beautiful things and helping people.

HOW DID YOU BEGIN YOUR CAREER: My career started accidentally. I thought I was writing a letter to a magazine editor and it ended up becoming a novel. It just kept getting longer and longer and longer and took on a life of it's own. It because my first self-published novel and sold 13,000 copies without me leaving New York City. All I had was a website and a pesky attitude, if I must say so myself--and mind you, I'm the first person to tell you, I'm "no" sales person.

ARE YOU LIVING THE LIFE YOU DREAMED OF: Yes, I am. I dabble in a little consulting too. I am in love with life and I love teaching other people how to get there and do what they love for a living too, be it interior design, fashion, being an author or a stylist. I run a fashion website and I get to meet people who create a myriad of products. I enjoy helping people and watching the look on people's faces when they finally see their dream come to fruition even though for years they've wrestled with the notion that maybe they couldn't do something.

WHO IS YOUR FEMALE INSPIRATION: I am inspired by all women, in all cultures, of all races and all ages. I think that there are women in some parts of the world that still don't have rights and still cannot walk with their heads held high. Those of us who can, must do that for them. There is no reason for us to be downtrodden. If we have the freedom to live our dreams, then we must. We have no time for jealousy, envy and tearing each other down over trivial matters. We are individuals, we aren't here to outdo each other. Life isn't a popularity contest. When I see a woman doing what she was born to do, I smile, because I simply love that!

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN: I am totally and completely enamored with the beach. I walk hand in hand with my honey. We love to sample Spanish and Portuguese foods and just relax--no crowds. Just give us a patch of sand, a tropical breeze and a crush of waves and we're all set.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR OTHER WOMEN IN PURSUIT OF THEIR DREAM: I say hit the ground running and don't stop. Be friendly. Don't be afraid to smile and meet people and ask questions, that's what it's all about. If I happen upon someone's website and I'm curious about what they do I don't just skip off into the sunset, I shoot them an email, send them a congrats, you never know what can come out of that.


When it comes to relationships I always say, "Avoid Counterfeits, Love Better and Marry Well."

When it comes to style I always say, "Fashion isn’t about buying the most expensive designers, it’s about learning the difference between overpriced items and quality products and then discovering your own style.”
