I read, I write, I tell stories. Welcome to The Madam Editor; a lifestyle playground. If you ask my friends they’ll tell you I’m extremely extra; a dinner party cannot simply be a dinner party at my house, it will be a night to remember.
To that end, I am not your average friend, I am that friend.
If you ask my family, they’ll tell you I’m a straight shooter, troublemaker, and a nutter.
If you ask me, I’m all those things and a work in progress. Third generation Nigerian emigrant living in the UK, I am proudly African and deeply invested in the stories that shaped me growing up. My grandmother wrote one of the most celebrated African children’s story books; Oluronbi’s Promise, and it’s safe to say I inherited a modicum of her gift for storytelling, (yeah, me- sorry sis), still working on my second novel. My first- a short(ish) story- was self-published on amazon. It’s a fun read which you can buy here.
I am the atypical Pisces; two sides of a coin- an introverted wild child. My relationships- family and friends- mean the world to me, but I enjoy the pleasure of my own company, often times a little too much. Grossly over-analytical yet wildly spontaneous; I love to travel, see the world, experience new cultures… but I am tethered to home and my roots; my heart never leaves. I have a highly addictive personality, therefore a growing list of unhealthy obsessions. Not a huge fan of the unknown; I am that person who reads the end of a book in order to know how invested I should be in a character, but will still be surprised even if I already know how the story ends! I know! I’m bloody mental. Some experts would call it sociopathic, but I promise I have no bodies on my name…yet.
If you ask for my opinion, I’ll give it to you unfiltered, therefore if you’re being a dick, I’ll let you know in those exact words.
Alongside this space, I have a limited edition travel print shop; the edtd; a collection of carefully edited travel prints from my adventures across the globe, and full-time job that I work way too hard at but enjoy, chances are I may never stop working even when this blog becomes a full-time gig; “activity suggests a life filled with purpose” – Captain von Trapp, and I find purpose in creativity of any kind.
I hope this space of mine fills you with as much laughs and light, in the moment and always.
Thanks for stopping by.
