Who is Deana Delrose?

Hi there! I'm Deana Delrose.

Thank you for being curious enough about me to click the link. A few years ago, I’d barely have been able to write this because I didn't know who I was. My identity was so warped around substances, cultural things, and delusions. Well, that escalated quickly. Let's rewind a bit...

I am a Jersey girl, born, raised, and currently reside. My name is pronounced Dean (like James Dean) with an A at the end. I love to cook and eat  specifically plant-based food (shout out to my fellow vegans)! I enjoy laughing and if I can get someone else to laugh it makes my day. I enjoy taking life one day at a time along with traveling, journaling, health, and wellness, and practicing authentic living and creating.

I'm 32 and live at home with my roommates: my dad, sister, and my adorable dog Lily. I'm appreciative of being here so I can spend time with my family, save money, and work on my passion projects (a.k.a. everything on this website! 😉).

I am a junior at Montclair State University. My major is Television and Digital Media with a concentration in Television Production. It's a great university and I've been thoroughly enjoying my experience. 

I have been bartending on and off for 14 years and am currently a waitress and bartender at a restaurant in NJ. 

Oh, and I’m happily single.

My beautiful mother Rae, passed away from lung cancer in 2017. It devastated my family, especially my siblings and me. She was my number one cheerleader in life, especially when I started my business. I miss my mom every single day, but she lives on in my heart and within all that I do. Cancer freakin’ sucks, but what doesn't is my constant love for her, and nothing can take that away. ❤️

Let's talk about business. I started OGCJ Clothing Company in 2014, with the hope of helping people not judge themselves or others too harshly. It's been quite the rollercoaster! Having a business is remarkably challenging, especially when you don't have a business background. However, I continue to learn and grow as much, and as often, as I can. By doing so, OGCJ and I have transformed over the years. My most recent challenge has been the difficulty of attempting to split my time between the many different things that I am passionate about. Then it hit me, to merge them together. That's when Life Fashion Freedom was born!

While I don't want to reveal too much so that you can continue to learn about me throughout my Life Fashion Freedom journey, here are some fun random facts: I am 4+ years sober from marijuana and alcohol (Thank you, JESUS!). I was re-baptized and recommitted myself to Jesus on behalf of Hillsong Church in New York City in July of 2016 and my life has been radically altered ever since. I have social anxiety, depression, ADHD, and migraines that constantly try to stop me from living my best life, but I continue to press forward regardless (some days are easier than others). Lastly, I try my best to love myself and others the way God does.
