Currently Crushing On: My Fab Fico

By  |  4 Comments

Tonya Rapley,

The blogosphere welcomes thousands of new residents with open arms each day. We’ve got sites dedicated to fashion, celebrity gossip, beauty, travel, sports and more, but how often do you stumble upon an aesthetically pleasing blog with loads of style & personality about financial responsibility? Enter Founded by Brooklyn resident, Tonya Rapley, My Fab Fico was created as a result of one woman’s journey to financial freedom. What started off as a personal endeavor has now blossomed into a movement of financially informed young women of color with excellent credit and a healthy relationship with money. In a city like New York where style mavens are more concerned about building designer shoe collections vs. building wealth, it’s refreshing to see a young woman committed to being financially fab and encouraging her peers to do the same.


The latest post on titled “5 Ways to Curb Impulse Spending” delivers easy to implement tips on how to avoid living beyond your means and paying for it later:

Such a timely post considering summer is synonymous with street fairs (enticing vendors), day parties (expensive cocktails), and end of the season sales you don’t want to miss, right? If you’re ready to get your financial house in order I encourage you to run, don’t walk, over to today. Put down that credit card and join Tonya Rapley’s fight to help women get financially fly, one impressive credit score at a time.


As a New York City beauty PR strategist, Renae Bluitt created "In Her Shoes" to empower and enlighten women committed to realizing their dreams.
