Hi! I’m Vanessa, a blogger, designer, thinker and food lover. Welcome to my blog!
As far back as I remember, I always loved to write. I remember crafting stories on spare notepads and building whole universes with my words. Somewhere between childhood and adulthood, I let worry and self-doubt get in the way and stopped doing what I loved.
My journey to starting this blog began wayyy back in 2013, where I created a street fashion blog that I later gave up on. In the following years, I started multiple blogs, each ending with the same fate as the first. I’m a huge believer that failure can be used as a catalyst for growth and so here I am, 7 years later trying again! In that time, I’ve grown and learned so much about myself and the world, so it’s only fair to share my perspective.
So what exactly is this blog about?
Over the past 10 years, I’ve been on an incredible journey to learn more about my culture and African diasporan cultures around the globe. I’ve immersed myself in books, media and have learned so much about the history and stories that make us who we are. This blog is a safe space, where I’ll share the fascinating things that I have discovered along the way. I hope you enjoy reading!
