Today we’d like to introduce you to Kendra-Nicole Cray.
Kendra-Nicole, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started fashion blogging during my freshman year of college as CollegeGirlKendra. As a newbie to the blogger world, I eagerly sought out to find my own little corner of the internet where I could share my style while also growing my college fashion/marketing portfolio. This was my dojo for about two years.
As I grew as a fashion blogger in college, I realized there was so much more I wanted to share. With my graduation approaching, I knew my blog had to graduate with me. I knew that College Girl Kendra could be so much more! Having worked with small businesses and bloggers in college developing their marketing/social media strategy and leading brand photography projects, I wanted to find a way to combine my blogging and marketing experience. So came the introduction of Coffee & Kendra, A La Mode – a curated fashion/lifestyle blog.
Has it been a smooth road?
No journey is perfect. I think one of my biggest struggles has been staying consistent and believing in my content. Creatives, alike, tend to be their hardest critics. I’ve had to learn to be nice to be and share my content with love.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Coffee & Kendra, A La Mode – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
As a blogger of 5+ years, I noticed a consistent theme with new bloggers and business owners. Everyone is unsure of where to start and how to maintain.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I’m an August native so living in the city has always been a dream of mine. I love that you can find just about any and everything in ATL. From unique places to eat, party, and shop, ATL has just about anything you can imagine. I also love the mix of people. I think everyone creative can thrive meeting the right group of people and ATL is the perfect places for making the right connections.
Something I hate? Definitely the traffic.
