Alana was born and raised in New Mexico and shares her love of food and fashion on her blog, along with her Outfit of the Day! She incorporated her DinΓ© culture in her fashion and her food, empowering her readers to embrace their culture through their hobbies.

My favorite part of her blog is how she uses her space and audience to lift other native businesses along with her. This is a trend I have been noticing throughout the native community on social media, an active pursuit to lift up each other and bring support for native-owned businesses.
