About Me

Hey – I’m Dani!

I’m in my mid-twenties, living in Los Angeles and working in the entrainment industry. Born right on the line in the middle of being a Millennial and Generation Z, I started Dani Dearest in my first year of college (2014!) to share what I was learning about life, and have a creative outlet.

I’ve always loved writing, reading, sharing, and telling stories. When I started college I fell in love with organization, planning, handling my finances, growing my career, and figuring out who I am. Combine these loves – and you have Dani Dearest.

I first launched Dani Dearest in 2014, during my first year of college.

Everybody needs someone by their side, supporting them along the way, and that’s exactly what Dani Dearest is for you. When I started Dani Dearest back in my Freshman dorm room, it started as a little personal blog to share my experiences in. Since then we have grown, expanded, and improved into this tiny business and massive community here to be that BFF by your side throughout your college and twenty-something experience.

Dani Dearest has evolved into a relatable, honest, and helpful hub for hundreds of thousands of Millennial and Gen Z women around the world.

Join me on this journey while I navigate my twenties, be a first time homeowner, grow my career, and find my place in this world.

Look at me now –

Around here, you can basically see the last 7 years of my life collected amongst these blog posts! When we first began I was a first year college student who had no idea what she wanted to do with her life. I hadn’t decided on a major, I was working multiple disconnected jobs, loved live theatre (still do!), and frankly wanted to transfer to a different university because I didn’t like where I was.

Sharing with you on Dani Dearest allowed me to explore my interests, gain real life marketing experience through trial and error here, and grow my confidence in myself and my future abilities. We started by talking about study tips and dorm decor, and now 7 years later here we are discussing the best ways to take your career to the next level, how I bought my house, and how to manage your money.

You’ve grown up with me, side by side, and I think that’s so special.

      Thank you so much! Like I said, I’m a procrastinating overachiever haha 🙂 I do work to stop myself from doing work!

      I also wonder how bloggers find the time! It’s all in me I just have the hardest time carving out the window in the day to sit down and do something with mine! I love your energy and I’m hoping to learn a lot from you!

    Hi Dani! I can totally identify with you — I’m a college senior and I love writing and blogging as well. I was wondering if you could give me some pointers on how to make my blog look a little more fun and upbeat. Your blog looks so cute and I wish I knew how to make mine look as lovely. Do you have any advice? I really appreciate it!!

    Dani, I found you on Pinterest and have spent an hour reading your posts when I should be writing a paper, finishing up a presentation, getting started on a book review, and reading up for a quiz *whoops*

    I didn’t think I’d find anyone so much like me in the blogging community. I too am 19 years old, majoring in Communication, and lead a super busy life (working 4 jobs as well here!) and am somewhat a procrastinating overachiever (I finally have a phrase to describe myself, thank you!)

    Thank you for your tips and your posts. They resonate a lot with me and say a lot of things I need to hear. And I really, really love your blog.

    – Mary
