Q: Tell us a bit about how your blog- J’adore Fashion came about and how long you’ve been blogging.
A: In 2008 after graduating from Nursing School, I decided to start a blog as an avenue to share my love for fashion and styles. My blog Jadore-Fashion was created as an avenue to express my love for fashion and style. Jadore-Fashion is a personal style blog that showcases my style evolvement. It also gives you insight to trends, runaway analysis and other inspiring styles and fashion around the world.
Q: What has been your most fulfilling achievement as a fashion blogger and what are some of the future goals for your blog?
A: For me, getting approached by readers at different places and receiving emails from different people from all over the world about styling advice and letting me know how much I inspire them means a lot—that to me, is a great achievement. Also, I have to say my dedicated readers and the constant growth of my viewership. My goal is to continue to improve Jadore-Fashion beyond what it is today and to reach and inspire different audiences around the world
Q: Do you think African fashion bloggers are valued/well-recognized? What do you suggest could be changed?
A: I do not think African bloggers are valued/well recognized for their role in promoting African fashion as much. I think the moment African designers start paying more attention to African fashion bloggers the more they can use it as a platform for expansion and creating more brand awareness. In my opinion, the African fashion industry should reach out to more fashion bloggers for collaborations.
Q: Describe African fashion in 3 words
A: Unique, daring, creative
Q: Who are your favourite African designers?
A: Maki Oh, Jewel by Lisa, Deaola Sagoe…
Q: Have you partnered with any brands or fashion houses? If so how do you discern which brands you choose to work with?
A: Yes! Before working with any brand, I have to make sure that it aligns with my brand image and my readers
Q: What do you manage your time as a working mother and a fashion blogger?
A: There are lots of sleepless days. There are some days that I have to set up my blog posts in advance or in the early AMs when everyone is asleep. I don’t mind having to get up an hour or two before work time to work on blog related activities. Also, I keep a schedule of things that needs to be done, but my family always take priority.
Q: What valuable lessons have you learnt from blogging and do you blog full-time?
A: I don’t blog full time, but a lot of my time goes into blogging just like any job. I have learnt that consistency and dedication is very important with blogging.
Q: Any word of advice to all the bloggers out there who look up to you and follow your blog?
A: My advice to them is that they do it because they love it and not necessarily because everyone is doing it or what they could gain from it. Blogging can be demanding and challenging; therefore, blog because you love what you are blogging about. Also, be open to continuous learning about fashion. In all, have fun with blogging. Consistency and dedication is very important!

big scary demon guard and his little human girlfriend <3 she’s actually not that little she’s 5’3” but he’s just huge like 7’ something Her name is Rania (ruh-nee-uh) and he’s idk yet im not good with names
since for once i actually have a back story for characters already made and these two exist separately from my others, here’s a rlly short summary on them:
humans from earth discovered how to travel between worlds, one containing demons. They establish good relations with them in a neutral state bc two sides of the demons are in a war, and the humans just want to trade/money. There’s an embassy in the demon’s world and Rania’s father works there, so her mother, her, and two friends go with him to stay during the summer. The demon guy is a guard for his side’s rep in the embassy and they get to know each other blah blah lovey dovey stuff
he’s actually sorta mean unintentionally but rania always tells him off bc despite her cutie-ness she’s pretty spunky. like the demons are sorta plain rude at times and she isn’t afraid to tell him off on his shit and he sorta likes that so yeah
i really like how this turned out his face looks gr8 im happy her arm is a bit skinny though but oh well
