Dolce Vanity

Created in the fall of '08, when blogs were not yet the phenomenon of today. The early days consisted of me documenting a new part of my life, being open and struggling with the current mishaps of life while discovering my new deep found passion for make-up. This became my outlet for a creative mind but troubled soul.

Nominated by Cosmopolitan Magazine for Best Established Beauty Blog in 2011 and 2012, which I went on to win.  This has lead to collaborations and working with reputable brands / press coverage can be viewed here.

Over the years my blog has evolved but I felt the blog lost the reason as to why it was voted to win to begin with. I had to take a step back and remember that this blog is my own space and I want to show more of me to my readers.  As much as I love hair & beauty, I like to voice my opinions on other topics. Look at this blog as being in my brain.

The Influencer

Toss your hair up in a bun,
Drink a pornstar martini,
Put on some gangsta rap and handle it.

I've always enjoyed writing & drawing / designing, as a child I used to write short stories & illustrate and sell them in school - gotta hustle from young.
Growing up, I spent a lot of time going to museums, theatres and appreciating the arts. Being a person who enjoys knowledge, I've always got a book on the go, favourite genres are mainly true crime - that goes for documentaries too.

Fact - I actually wanted to become a criminologist

Growing up in the 90s, I carry a soft spot for the deacade, from the music, fashion and just the pop culture and how the world changed. Who else would buy the entire MAC Aaliyah collection just for a keepsake. A 2Pac stan, you best come correct over the GOAT.
An animal lover, I've had 21 animals in my 30+ years. Plus I think I have an addicition for piercings.
