One.

October 1st. My first blog post!
Before I lay out my life and the life of Foundations to Flights, I’ll start by introducing myself.

ASL (age, sex, location) is no longer a thing, right 😂? But it worked back in the day, so let’s work on the formula:

  • Alias: RochRia, short for Rochelle Rianne (that’s me!)
  • Status: single, Christian, funemployed, transitioning to natural hair
  • Likes: beauty (foundations), travelling (flights) & Alexandre Lacazette (football)

The past 12 months have probably been the hardest time of my life; leading to this post and ultimately the start of Foundations to Flights. And after reading Adé Akins thread yesterday and encouragement from my girls (The GG Groupchat 🔥), I realised there’s no “perfect” launch date – which was pretty hard for me to come to terms with!

The “phrase” Foundations to Flights came about from previously working at a global beauty brand to now starting a new chapter at a global airline (thanks Becss for coining the phrase!). But for me it means so much more…

Foundations
/faʊnˈdeɪʃ(ə)n/
1. My love for beauty
2. Getting baptised
3. Connecting closer with family members
Flights
/flʌɪt/
1. Travelling (of course!) with BFFs and OAPs!
2. Taking off to explore new things & a new job
3. Getting out of my comfort zone

Foundations to Flights will initially reflect on my work/career, travels, family & faith. As I mentioned the last 12 months haven’t been easy and I didn’t want my first post to be a sob story as everyone is dealing with their own battles. But in a picture-perfect, insta-famous, 140-character-world I think it’s important to share some of these battles to let people know you’re not alone and don’t have to deal with certain experiences alone. So I hope you like and even learn from my experiences and please know you’re not the only one trying to get your ish together!
