Sometime in 2010
I remember this day very clearly. The day I spoke my dream into existence.
When I was in grade 11, I told my eldest brother that I want to become a YouTuber one day. His response always stuck with me – “What’s stopping you?” See, at the time I had no camera, no mic, and I had the very basic makeup (foundation, mascara, and lipstick). I mean, this was at a time where YouTube was only something us as South Africans watched and never pursued. I decided to keep my dream a secret and moved on with life, but that nagging urge to express my creativity kept popping into my mind.
Fast forward to 2014, I decided to start blogging to release that nagging urge. I needed a space that would allow me to release and possibly inspire others to do what I had been afraid to do. The launch of my blogging career was and still is a great success, and I cannot wait to see the blessings that God has in store for me for the future.

I finally uploaded my first makeup tutorial. This may seem like a simple thing to do, right? You shoot the video, edit, get someone else to view it, and then upload. It wasn’t that simple for me. I was an emotional wreck once that video went up.
I had created about 10-12 videos prior to this, but never had the guts to upload them. I was always thinking “it’s not good enough” or “I can do better than this”. Lets just say that it took over a year for me to change my mindset and realize that the only way I was going to get over this is to just start. As simple yet complex as that. You see, the passion that I have for makeup, fashion and the industry in general is what keeps me coming back and keeps me wanting more for myself and the brand that I’ve created.

I uploaded my welcome video, which you can watch below. This video was easy yet to the point with what you as viewers can expect from me as the creator. I am both excited yet nervous for what’s to come, but I know that it only be greater. Thank you for all the support that you have shown thus far in this and I hope that you’ll have as much as I am.
Until the next video,
