I saw this morning that overnight I got around 300 new followers on bloglovin’ – how is that for amazing way to start your day?
With the flow of new readers I feel the need to reintroduce myself.
I am not new to fashion blogging – most of you will probably know me as the author of candyandcookie.com – a site that I started 3 years ago whilst changing career paths and entering the world of styling / fashion journalism.
Candy & Cookie was well received by the Dubai scene and I was fortunate enough to get media exposure (and features on my personal style) via publications such as Harpers Bazaar, Savoir Flair etc. (You will find a few of the press clippings under Featured In on the landing page).
At the same token I managed to spread my stylist wings (cringe worthy expression but you catch my drift) and work for several TV shows (Dubai One and MBC) as well as commercial clients and printed media – recently working as the Fashion / BeautyEditor of POSE Magazine (a selection of my portfolio is available under Portfolio on the landing page).
1 month ago I was offered representation by bareface – Dubai’s premier talent agency (www.bareface.com) and decided to venture out as a freelance stylist and so the need for a new online portfolio / blog came up.
As much as Candy & Cookie served me well as a quirky name for a personal blog, I found that it wasn’t entirely ‘grown up enough’ when dealing with high end fashion clients. Besides at the end of the day I work with style and not baked goods – ENTER STYLE DRIFTER. 🙂
Here’s to new beginnings…..
