About

Welcome to my blog!

I’ve spent over the past five years working in marketing communications and during my spare time, I use my writing and content creation skills to author this Canadian-based, African fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog for the modern woman. I hold a degree in communication studies from York University and a diploma in public relations from Durham College. During my studies, I developed a strong passion for story-telling and this blog was born. Blogging is an extension of who I am and a part of my life that is here to stay. I am most fulfilled when I am helping fashion brands communicate their unique stories. I give businesses the voice that they need to engage their market through social storytelling.

This blog (formerly known as Myafrofashion) offers posts that are carefully written and crafted with love for an audience who is excited and engaged about all things bright, colourful and bold. My creative content includes style posts, beauty reviews, fashion tips and so much more. Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and cozy up to read my posts every week. Feel free to drop a comment or say hello! I respond to every single comment. You can also email me if you have a question.
