I created my Beauty & Style blog StylEnigma in 2014 while recovering from a major lupus flare. I wanted to celebrate individuality and creativity because I’ve always had a problem with doing things just because the masses are. I’ve never been into cliques or trends, I’ve never been a follower or cared about being liked, and what I’m thinking usually escapes my lips before I can stop it. In essence, I have no desire to be anything other than who I am.

I am passionate about the many facets of beauty and fashion and I love to write, so I use it as a form of continuing education. Having lupus has meant having to adapt to physical life challenges many times and makeup has been a reliable vehicle for self-expression and transformation. I love the idea of being a canvas and successfully transforming into the embodiment of my mood, desired mood, or the expected environment from head to toe.

Writing feeds my soul and there is so much to learn and write about, so StylEnigma is now a Life blog; it will still feature fashion, style, beauty, and health topics, in addition to my failed attempts at keeping plants alive, critiquing nonsense, and pondering the human condition. I’ll continue talking about my black clothing addiction and my latest nail art project while learning new forms of art and content creation while riding this life til the wheels fall off.

Enjoy the ride,
