Behind Kira by Kira Tabor


Drumroll, please. The long anticipated wait is now finished and today I can officially why I unveiled this new look for the bloggy. Let me start off by introducing myself on the new face of my blog. My name is Kira Tabor (Keyr-uh, Tabor rhymes with "labor"). I have a passion for fashion, food, traveling and fitness. Here, on Kira by Kira Tabor, I will share my latest adventures and current obsessions. As well as my personal take on photography and 
other fun pieces of life sprinkled in-between. 

As of right now, I am closing my freshman year of high school. I have not had the "typical" high school experience because of the the fact that I go to a school specifically dedicated to the arts: my major is piano. Here I have met some amazing people, and I have been immersed in so many different forms of art, such as photography, since I first started in the sixth grade here at this school.

Now, I am not like most high school girls. I am not falling hard for a guy and I like to spend my Saturday nights with my family. One could say that I am "antisocial", but I think of myself as very independent and passionate about something that I don't like to talk about with a lot of people.

I stand tall at 5 feet 11.5 inches tall. When I was younger, I was so insecure about my height. It even got to the point where in a class picture I was bending my knees so I would not come off as the tallest girl in the class (even taller than all of the boys). Over the past two years however, I came to realize that something I was so insecure about could become one of my greatest keys to unlocking a whole new world. 

Last year, I started (at 5 feet 7) to do a few minor fashion shows and "photo shoots" with a family friend. This was a great start, but I started to want to model more and more. Only being fourteen and short for the modeling world, not a whole lot of opportunities presented themselves to me straight away, and they still don't. Over the summer, I grew FIVE AND A HALF (!!!!) inches and turned fifteen. Now on the taller side of the modeling spectrum I have gotten many more opportunities to model locally, not just for local retailers and such, but for big names such as Carmen Marc Valvo and Tibi. But now, I am tired of the local market and all I can think of every single day, twenty four hours a day- seven days a week is when the time comes for me to move my modeling career to the next level. To move to New York and beyond! 

I have now created a brand for myself "Kira". I am Kira. I am the tall blonde that likes to drink decaf capps and read a book. I am the Kira who loves to travel with her family. The 'by Kira Tabor' is me, Kira Tabor. The author. The human. The one who not only lives the story, but also writes about it. The one who carves her path so gracefully and carefully. I am a dreamer. So what ever I dream, I fully believe that one day it will come true.

Thank you so much for following along and bearing with me through my indecisiveness. The new adventure officially begins tomorrow May 7th, the URL is changing to www.kiratabor.blogspot.com. Let's start this new chapter together shall we?

  1. Congrats on the new blog Kira! I look forward to seeing where it goes. This is a lovely intro, and the name makes much more sense to me now that it has been explained this way!
