About The Blog

I started The Authentic Girl blog in 2014 as a platform to share the things I love. My website focuses on topics related to food, fashion, empowerment, beauty and lifestyle.

These days I find myself focusing more on food, beauty and fashion because that’s what resonates with me and my readers. I am especially passionate about the culinary and fashion scene. My obsession with food started at a young age with my Mom, who cooks/bakes the most amazing dishes. These experiences cultivated my taste buds. As for fashion, I’ve always loved it! I love local and international designers, their creativity inspires me. And of course, shopping happens to be a hobby of mine too.

I am a firm believer in a healthy balanced person and therefore another topic I am passionate about is empowerment of the mind, body and spirit.
