“My hope is to inspire my readers to discover and cultivate their own inner style and creativity from reading my blog”
“My name is Dayna, the founder and curator of my blog, Dayna Without Rules. I am half Korean and half Finnish and lived in Seoul, Korea, until moving to the United States at the age of 15. I currently reside in Scottsdale, Arizona with my husband, our trouble-making beagle, and my Andalusian stallion (who happens to be my pride and joy). When I’m not blogging, I work full time as a dental hygienist. This brings me to the reason I began blogging. Although I have a background in make-up as well as fashion, I never believed nor thought I could make a living doing what I loved. Consequently, I focused on a traditional career in the medical field.
I have been a practicing dental hygienist for over 16 years. Although I enjoy helping and interacting with my patients, it has never truly fulfilled or actualized me. What really fulfills me is the ability to express my creativity through the canvas of fashion and make-up. My love of clothing and all things related to fashion was gleaned from my pint-sized Korean Mother.
Growing up, I always noticed her clothing choices and her ability to be progressive with her style. She was, and continues to be my style icon.
My desire to begin blogging emerged several years ago, however; like most of individuals, fear of the unknown kept me at bay. I seemed to get consistent signs that I should pursue my dream of blogging, yet I continued to ignore them. Finally, in August 2016, I decided to take the plunge and began researching, planning, and laying the groundwork for my blog, Dayna Without Rules. I started DWR as a platform to showcase and express my creativity via fashion, beauty, and my love of discovering new places and destinations.
My hope is to inspire my readers to discover and cultivate their own inner style and creativity from reading my blog. Most importantly, I hope my readers find enjoyment from the content I diligently work to create.” Dayna of Dayna Without Rules.
