Welcome to The Style Confessions! My name is Heather Fonseca and I started this blog in the spring of 2011 to share my love of fashion, clothing and beauty. My goal is to inspire my readers to feel beautiful and glamorous. Two to three times a week I publish an article about something I enjoy, be it an outfit of the day, a clothing store I like, an emerging fashion trend, or a beauty product that really works. I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I do.
The self-expression and language of apparel fascinates me. Reading fashion and beauty blogs, looking at street style photographs, and watching runway shows are some of my favorite on-line activities. Window shopping and people watching inspire me to try new looks and embrace new trends. I confess that I also love to shop for new clothes. It doesn’t matter to me if my latest wardrobe items come from the local thrift store or a high-end emporium; I adore them all! Sharing my outfits and favorite beauty products with my friends brings me great joy.
I would be remiss not to mention the photographer who documents my style journey. My husband, Hugo, has loved the art of photography since high school. He shoots all the images of me for the blog. You can learn more about him and his photos on his website at HugoFonseca.com .
I strongly believe that when we look good we feel good. When we feel good about ourselves we spread that joy to everyone. I hope you join me in this quest for style nirvana, because looking great isn’t just the best revenge, it’s also a lot of fun!

Blogging can be a lonely business but when I hear from my readers and the act of writing and posting becomes interactive, exciting and social. I really do love your comments! They make this all worthwhile. I try very hard to respond to each one, though it might take me a few days to do so. Anti-spam programs including Askimet protect my comment form, so sometimes a real comment will make its way to a spam or moderation folder. If your comment doesn’t pop up for a few hours that’s why. I don’t moderate the comments other than to make sure they’re not spam. For fellow bloggers I’ve installed Comment-luv, a program which automatically finds your newest post and places a link to it after your comment. If you’re reading this I hope I’ve encouraged you to leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you.
Keep in Touch!
If you like my blog I hope you will consider subscribing. There are a few ways to do this, the most reliable is probably to sign up for updates via e-mail. You’ll receive an e-mail with my new post about a day after I post it. You can also follow The Style Confessions via Bloglovin. I’m also active on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.
As the creator of The Style Confessions™ I occasionally profit from advertising or sponsorship from other companies. When the blog makes a bit of money it helps to pay for web hosting and other fees associated with running the blog, and I very much hope my readers will consider checking out my sponsors. I am also affiliated with Shop Style and RewardStyle.com. If you purchase a product from an affiliate link to the site I will receive a small commission.
I believe strongly in full disclosure, so when a company sponsors an article I will specifically mention it in the post. If I receive a piece of clothing for free and wear it in an outfit post I will mention that in the post as well (as well as a link to where you can purchase it yourself, if you are so inclined.) Whether a post is sponsored or not, I only write about the things I love, beauty products that work for me, and clothing that I either wear myself or want to own. What I do and don’t like is subjective and I cannot guarantee that you will feel the same way if you decided to purchase something I feature. Whether you disagree or agree with me, please voice your opinion in the comment section. I love hearing from my readers!
I am interested in many forms of collaboration with potential and current sponsors. Reviewing products, guest posting, hosting give-aways and incorporating sponsored or gifted apparel into my outfit posts are all collaborations that are welcome here at The Style Confessions™. If you are interested in collaborating with me in any of these ways please contact me here. More information and guidelines for potential sponsors can be found here: Advertise and Collaborate
