Elesi Azumah (Features Editor)

Affectionately known as “Elle” by her friends and family, Elesi is a hardworking and driven mom who oozes an enormous passion for Journalism and everything Media orientated. Hailing from a small town in the Eastern Cape, Elesi comes from a very diverse background with a Western African Father and Xhosa Mother, who have taught her the importance of being open minded and accepting people from all aspects of life. Having graduated with a Diploma in Journalism and Media Studies, I believe my internship programs during Varsity at  Radio Al Ansaar and at SAMNET (South African Muslim Network) were stepping stones towards grooming my work ethics within the field of Journalism no matter how small the opportunity was at the time. Despite studying Journalism I have always has a huge interest in beauty. “I personally believe with confidence and determination I can change beauty expectations one contour at a time”. Self taught and passionate about the beauty industry including a great obsession for makeup. I started blogging about it and offering my services because I realized i was that good. “I am a self proclaimed make-up goddess in the making because we all know how beauty looks keep evolving and I am always up to date with mine”. Comfortable in her plus size body and always ready to break beauty boundaries, Elesi is a force to be reckoned with. From PR Enthusiast, Beauty Blogger, Freelance Make-up Artist and Journalist why would anyone not want to remember this name!

Simone Gobin (Creative & Sales Director)

I am Simz. Mrs Simone Gobin to be exact, but call me Simz. A mother of two angels and a wife to probably the craziest, but most ride or die man EVER. Although I have kids, I still love to have fun, laugh a lot, make every moment count, take a lot of pictures, oh …and dance. I believe that every moment has the potential to become a great memory. I probably have too much of an opinion about everything & as far as my popularity goes, I would say that I am probably an acquired taste. I am fun though, even bubbly, but only if you get to know me because I’m one of those introverted people that becomes an extrovert around familiar people. I am also an IT Consultant (ranging from web design to software development!) with a diploma in Software development and a blogger (The Mum Blog SA).

Courtney Rehman

Courteney

I find it very hard to explain myself to people when they say tell me about yourself because honestly, what you see is what you get. I’m 24 with a Journalism and Media Diploma, no kids, no boyfriend and absolutely no care in the world about anything. I literally love everything except vegetables, pink and cleaning! I’m living my best life because life is meant to be lived right? I live by the phrase ‘Hakuna Matata’ which means ‘No worries.’ One day I hope they allow us to wear flip flops everywhere (I mean to clubs and events etc). All I want out of life is experiences and happiness.

UMM Suhail

A South African, mother of 3 currently living and working in Qatar always striving to contribute towards the “change” , in a world where emails will be short, love letters brave and every “thank you” note be hand written!
As I move through life, I want to share my experiences – the interesting places I am so fortunate to visit, the amazing people I meet and the profound moments I am blessed with.
When I am not working, you can find me watching Pretty Woman or Devdas for the 101st time, I watch obscene amounts of television without a trace of shame, surf the net, visit main stream or boutique hotels, restaurants and street food vendors, specialized coffee shops or the local karak drive through stores, High end stores to 5 Riyal stores, Home Interior Stores or drive aimlessly looking for inspiration for my next post, the ultimate photo opportunity or simply write about what captures my imagination

Tasneem Amos

I’m a 20 something, female from Durban, South Africa. I’m currently employed as client relationship manager at Discovery Health SA and studying towards a BA in Communication Science. I am an aspiring blogger and author and have hopes of becoming a radio personality. Being a force for social good is the existence of my core and I am a foodie of note; best believe, a child of The Most High. I am commonly known to be a people’s person, quite the conversationalist, and am known to be colourful in every sense of the word. My aim in life is to spread love and light through the written and spoken word. I live by the saying: have courage and be kind and consider the authentic connections I make, with the people and things around me, the greatest thing in life. I love everything that allows one to express oneself artistically; be it cooking, baking, music, photography, fashion, blogging, reading etc. I own being a plus-size girl and pain and I have had a few encounters in the boxing ring, let’s just say, I always win! Pretenders are my hugest peeve and because of this I make sure I wear my flaws like a diamond necklace. I believe hugs can change the world and affirm that my smile is the prettiest accessory I own.
