Life is a series of constant ups and downs. It could be a series of constant disappointments due to dwelling or a constant series of fighting to be better or do better. Never allowing your situations or circumstances to define you has to be an unspoken gift. For not all of us can be that mentally and emotionally strong. Most times, we allow bad situations to drown us in misery. It can either kill our dreams or worse, our spirit.
Cancer is one of those illnesses we all wish never existed that takes away precious lives at an alarming rate. Survivors are praised for beating this killer disease and at times we forget. We forget to celebrate the warriors who chose to live their lives to the fullest, despite eventually losing the battle to cancer. Living as before, no limitations to who you are while battling cancer can’t be easy. However, the late Kyrzayda Rodriguez did it to the very end.
Kyrzayda Rodriguez was a full-time mom and lifestyle blogger based in New Jersey and her long time battle with stomach cancer came to a heart breaking end on the 10th of September 2018 at the young age of 40.
She was known for her exceptional sense of style and her personal blog was quite popular on the blogosphere. She was a style regular on platforms such as Fashion bomb daily for their #fashionbombshellseries. Having taken a deep look at her blog that started in 2013, I could feel the loss of a true style legend.
Having blogged for some time, Kyrzayda Rodriguez had quite an impressive influence on people who followed her journey before and after cancer. What made her so popular was the inspiration she gave the world. She constantly expressed her faith while interacting with her followers and stepping out in style as always. All this while being critically ill. She was a positive light to people and even in her moment of darkness, she was always giving back.

Having to find new confidence after cancer has been hard for me. There are days I don't even want to get dressed or even get out of bed, I truly believe I’m finding motivation in every situation. As a fashion blogger/ influencer who loves style and all things fashion, it’s important for me to still create looks that work with my new body.

Designers, bloggers and fashionistas are mourning the loss of Kyrzayda. They are celebrating her life by sharing some of her most stylish and fabulous moments. From what I saw on social media, she is blessed and covered in absolute love. Even when cancer made her frail, taking a toll on her body, she still ceased the day and slayed our lives away. Her sense of style blew us away until the very end. However, what will remain with us forever is her ability to remain positive despite going through the worst predicament anyone can go through.
Here is a look at some of Kyrzayda Rodriguez most memorable style moments.
A true inspiration and a style icon, may she rest in power and peace in paradise.
