It’s so funny how we are brought up in a way that makes us impossible to reach our dreams. Or, perhaps a way that saw me doing this job maybe at the age of 25 if I was lucky, not 21.

Here I am, in London as we speak and travelling around the world on a buying trip. I have my own brand and the opportunity to let my creative side be free. Everything is possible and this is something I never thought was possible for my age. However, with the opportunities I have gained lately as well as working pretty damn hard to get everything done – I have found myself here.

I am so stoked that I can officially say I am now a fashion designer. At 21? Yes. I’m serious!

The past year has been a whirlwind and I have had some pretty awesome opportunities come my way and I only have one person to thank. A good friend of mine started his own travel blog, studied a personal development course and absolutely changed my way of thinking. He became a mentor to me and helped me change my mood swings, my negative thinking and my negative network. I know that this had everything to do with me and making the change but had he not planted the seed in my mind – I would not be here. He taught me I can have anything I want. I want to show all of you how you can too.

I unlocked a part of my mind that would make anything possible and I started planning my own life day by day. It all started here:


I wanted independence. I wanted to shine and I didn’t want my emotions to get caught up on the guy I was seeing or how lonely I was. I was so distracted by the male kind and just wanted someone to be around to help me grow. Then I realised, I needed to grow myself. I needed to be me before I could be with anyone and I needed to learn how to be independent and not depend on someone to make me happy. I, to this day, and for the last 8-10 weeks have felt wholly content and I would not change this feeling for the world. I am happy, I have the most wicked job, I have an amazing circle of friends, an incredible family and I guess everyone would say there’s just that one thing missing. Maybe, but I don’t think I’m ready for it yet. I want to embrace this and find someone who is the same. All that will come in due time, whenever I’m ready. I could already know the person or be yet to meet them. The main thing is I’m so happy right now that it doesn’t even bother me.

Stay Peachy

With Love,
