I am Hailey Ray a Junior Public Relations student attending the prestigious Florida A&M University, and also the owner and creator of typicalvixen.com. Typical Vixen, is a monthly editorial and blog about the lifestyle and opinions of pretty women which launched January 21,2014. Every 21st of the month we feature 12 girls interviews about our Hot Topics which have included anything from Marijuana, to Strippers, to Love to Natural Hair. While Pretty Girls & Hot Topics is our headline it is my hope that by giving girls a chance to share their opinion on topics such as these, that people will start to see that we are more than just pretty faces and also pretty thoughts. My mission “All girls are pretty. All girls are worth it. All girls should know it.” Is the core of why I created this site. I saw so much negativity towards women on social media from both each other and from men, that I wanted to create a place that uplifted all girls. Even those who do not consider them self sexy, beautiful, or even pretty, hence the name “typical” vixen, a vixen being a female fox, and I believe all women possess this inner fox.
Another aspect of our site is highlighting young women who are on the rise through our Vixen of the Month or VOM. This has been one of my favorite parts of creating the site, as it allows me to connect with so many fabulous women, and share their stories with the world. We also have our “Pretty Hot Blog” or PHB, a videos section, a social media page that highlights post from our Instagram and Facebook, along with a link to our Tumblr feed and my personal blog about being a young Christian women “Don’t Bite the Apple Eve” or DBTAE. Pretty soon I would also like to highlight women in small business in a portion called “Women 2 Watch” and begin heavily promoting awareness of our adopted mission, The mission to end sex slave trafficking through the Not for Sale foundation
Team Typical Vixen is a small but mighty group of ladies including my partner our Creative Development Specialist Camille Smith, our Lead Editor and my mother Sharon Ray, my younger sister our Video Blogger, Alona Ray, and our potential Social Media Specialist my good friend Zuri Corley. We feature a number of guest bloggers from time to time but most of the design, writing and interviewing is done by me, which I must say is at times a bit tedious but definitely worth the finished product.
So I’m here today, creating this blog via WordPress in an effort to share the mission of Typical Vixen with a bigger audience, connect with some other bloggers, and hopefully inspire some women along the way. I’ll be doing reviews of our Hot Topics featuring some of my favorite answers, sharing with you some updates on our VOM’s , talking about our upcoming promotions , contest or open positions, and maybe just talking about what I have going on as the busy owner of this grand enterprise.
I love what I do, and I love that people actually care to read what I’ve created, no matter how many eyes we have, at least a few is satisfying to me. So with that being said, I invite you to explore the world of Pretty Girls & Hot Topics, anytime, any device, anywhere and feel free to share 🙂
