Hailing from the Sunshine State, and shining with her own infectious light every day, meet our favorite blogger of the moment, Jomarys Leon-Rivera. I had the luck of coming across Jomarys, also fondly known as Jomy, through Instagram. Her Instagram page, @love_jomy, instantly caught my eye with its authenticity, quality, and heart present within each caption of every photo. Since my first discovery of Jomy, I have witnessed her blossom over social media, constantly innovating and inspiring everyone that comes her way. Not only does Jomy curate her own blog posts on her site, Love Jomy, but she also has a YouTube channel of the same name. No matter what she publishes into cyberspace, from videos where you get to see her absolutely adorable personality, to style posts that make you want to try on items outside of your comfort zone, Jomy has it—the factor to go far, in which the sky is never the limit.
Cliché: What inspired you to create your blog, Love Jomy?
Jomarys Leon-Rivera: It all started when I was in my first semester at the University of Central Florida. I was taking a social media course that required you to start a blog and post consistently throughout the semester. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. I really enjoyed talking about the things I love and sharing it with the world.
Who would you say is your biggest influence?
My mom has always been the greatest influence in my life. I always strive to make her proud and show her that everything I do, I do for her. She’s my drive and I always look forward to hearing her feedback and excitement when I post things.
Where do you gain inspiration to curate content on your blog?
I find inspiration everywhere. I think it’s important to always keep your eyes, mind, and heart wide open because ideas and content can sprout from anything.
How would you describe your personal style?
I think it’s pretty difficult to describe my style and I am totally cool with it. I want people to see items of clothing, shoes, etc. and think, “That’s so Jomy.” I love to dabble in different kinds of styles and make them my own.
If you could give our readers one tip to channeling their own personal style, what would it be?
The best tip I could give would be to always be confident in yourself and to stay true to what you like. Forget about what people think; if you like it, rock it!
Scenario time! You have a road trip planned with some of your best gal friends. What are your must-bring items?
Candy and snacks are definitely a must! I’m not sure if I could survive a road trip without indulging in everything I shouldn’t be eating. The next thing isn’t really an item, but the most important thing about road trips is a killer playlist. That’s the key to having a successful road trip.
Let’s face it: we all have that one makeup product we cannot live without. What’s yours and why?
I don’t know how I could survive my days without mascara. Although concealer is a close second, I think mascara adds a bit of life to your eyes and face.
What is the best thing that has happened to you with the creation of Love Jomy?
I have become such a better person with the creation of Love Jomy. When women tell me how much I have inspired them to feel confident and pursue their dreams, I feel like I have accomplished much more than I could have ever imagined.
What do you hope to create and spread on Love Jomy?
I want people to feel inspired when they come across Love Jomy. I also want to spread positivity and motivate others to be their true selves.
