This month, we followed journalism student and entrepreneur Alexa Raven through the streets of town to get the inside scoop on what makes this effervescent beauty tick. We first spotted her at Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club, where she will wed the love of her life, Brandon Sulter, later this year. She will chronicle her journey down the aisle on her blog TheyCallMeLexx, where she also offers “big sis” beauty and fashion tips. And, while she’s already a “Girl Boss” in her own right, as the owner of Black Feather Marketing LLC, she also has future plans to put her stylish instincts to good use and open a boutique in Ocala.

White shimmery eyeshadow with thick black eyeliner. Who let me out like that?
