A Message from the Founder: Abibat Durosimi

BLOOM is about personal growth. Learning how to live a positive lifestyle: mind body and spirit. When you go through life's trials and tribulations, there are two ways you can deal with it... go into depression and conjure bad habits, or realize that everything that happens in life has a silver lining. Whatever you put out into the universe you get that right back, the law of attraction. Basically, living a holistic lifestyle is a mantra of a healthy mindset that transcends into self-care. When you feel good you look good, and in my profession when you look good you feel good.  

In the past several years I went through my own personal growth. Where I found myself blossoming into the woman I am now. Learning how to become a single mother of 2, while rebranding my business. It was time to take Tabiba Styles to the next level.  Being in the beauty industry and working for one of the most beloved Icon in the music industry taught me how to stay true to my art and turn it into a brand. At the time, while working for PRINCE, it didn't dawn on me that he was trying to teach everyone in his camp to live the way he did.  He was first about himself.  For some, they would call that selfish, but if you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of anyone else... especially those who count on you, rather if it family or your peers.

I had to hit rock bottom to blossom to the woman I am now. Without the support of my family and friends (see that was the key, you have to let people who care about you help you). I wouldn’t be where I am now. We can't do everything by ourselves.  I feel that the most high put us here on this earth to live out our destiny and to do that you need people to help support and/or guide you.  Keep like-minded individuals around you and keep positive energy around you, especially NOW!

We are in a state in the world where we need to think positive to push through adversity.  Not to say we should ignore whats going on, but find a positive way to deal with negative issues in our nation. We live in a country that strives off of a corporate mentality. The purpose of this collective is to bring creative entrepreneurs, who are like minded to help mentor and educate our generation and the next, to strive to take their God-given gifts and implement them into a profound career.  The only way to do that is to have a clear mind, a healthy body, and a positive spirit, hence BLOOM!
