Bloggers Plan Too – Vol. 11: Meet ILIANA




I am a 24 year old currently living in DMV area. I’m a full time college student majoring in public relations. When I’m not blogging I’m either with my family, boyfriend, friends, shopping, working, doing homework or at church. I love trying new restaurants, watching sunrises and sunsets, I’m not a fan of summer and fall is my favorite. Philippians 4:13 is my favorite verse and is what I owe my confidence to.

Sophisticated Fashionista began in 2015 as an outlet for to inspire women in fashion, beauty, lifestyle and everything in between. As a proud Latina, my blog has evolved into a bilingual platform for women all over the world. My goal is to build a place of empowerment and to remind women of their unique beauty.

  1. When did you start blogging and what made you want to start?

I started blogging in January 2015. I always loved fashion and dressing up, my friends and family often asked me for style advice and took me shopping with them to help them pick out clothes.

Most planner companies have free printables of their page layouts, I advise you to print a few and try them out. There are a ton of different brands and layouts which means not all are for you. Find your perfect planner by trying out different layouts.
