I am a fun-loving, energetic, and everyday working woman with a zest for life that reaches beyond the everyday. I sincerely appreciate each day as it comes because it’s so unpredictable. I am probably best described by a term my friends and family created, “girlie tomboy”, as it is definitely befitting of me and my personality; as well as, a great compliment to my name (which not too many females have). Like most women, I truly enjoy wearing heels, dressing up, getting my hair/nails/make-up done, being pampered, and shopping. But, the tomboy in me finds balance and peace in working out 5-6 days/week, attending or watching sporting events, wrestling for fun, tailgating, being active and just having a good time. I enjoy traveling and spending relaxing hours on the beach listening to the waves, reading a book, and maybe even jogging or tossing the football around. With my outgoing personality, I am usually game for just about anything that doesn’t have the potential to kill me…we only live once, so go for it! As an only child and true Virgo, it is clear that I absolutely love having it all but I am also the most free/kind-hearted person you may ever meet.
A sincere passion for style, beauty, and everything fashion lead me to starting my own styling and image consulting business, Declarations Consulting, and personal Fashion, Fitness, and Beauty Blog, Darnel’s Desires, after 10+ years of teaching and coaching. I have often been compliment on my personal sense of style and called upon for fashion and image advice, so I decided to marry my passion for fashion and desire for my own business into a relationship that allows me to make others smile. Image is a Personal Reflection of You and I enjoy helping and seeing others reflect a sense of style and persona/professional image that is a positive representation of the individual they see and feel from within.
In addition to my image consulting and personal styling business and writing my blog, Darnel’s Desires, I am also a freelance model with credits that include Men’s Warehouse and Academy commercials, fashion shows, music videos and print. There is just something about being on set and being able to mix everything that makes me smile….fashion, fitness, beauty…into a visual representation that can be shared with others that makes everything feel complete and right with the world!
