Welcome to my self-titled blog! Yes my name is Mmanaka. I was born and bred in Atteridgeville, a township on the west of the city of Tshwane. I currently reside in the city of Johannesburg and hope to get an opportunity to live in the big apple someday. I love love love love New York City! Everything about that city speaks to my heart, especially the fashion. My fashion interests are the main reason I started this blog. I wanted to share that part of myself with everyone and assist others where I can.
I studied both my undergraduate and honours degree at the University of the Witwatersrand, majoring in actuarial science. I am currently practicing as an actuarial specialist within the life insurance industry. Product development is my key area and I enjoy it purely because it allows for creativity. I am a creative soul and express it largely through fashion. Experimenting with clothing is something I am passionate about. I hope that one day I get to do business in the fashion industry. The day I figure out how to collaborate my current skillset with my passion for fashion, will be the day I find my true purpose in life hahaha! I enjoy playing with different fabrics, combining different styles in an outfit and not shy to use a lot of colour, then top it up with great accessories. I am blessed to have a designer friend who can turn my ideas into incredible outfits. I recently started looking into styling other people and that is going great thus far.
I enjoy travelling greatly and cannot wait to share my travelling experiences with you. I have travelled to Bali, Thailand, Singapore, USA(New York, California, Washington, Maryland, Louisiana), Mexico, Bahamas, Dubai, Spain, Italy, Kenya, Burundi, Botswana and Lesotho. There are still so many places I would love to visit and will blog about them when the time comes. Most lifestyle and travelling posts will be shared through the lens of fashion.
