My name is Kemi Akin and I’m a blogger from London. I’ve been online for a long time: I self taught myself to code HTML and design websites at age 10, and since then have made a wealth of websites online before settling on Skylish. When I was 15 I opened up my own webdesign shop, and for 3 years would design and code websites for others, often fellow bloggers! I decided to branch into beauty blogging when I realised that none of my friends understood my passion for beauty – and over time it developed primarily into a style and lifestyle blog.
These days I blog for women and girls like me. I use my past experiences to give tips and advice, get people really thinking with various “think pieces”, but still keep it light with general lifestyle and travel posts. I am a writer at heart, having written my first story at the age of 5 (…which became fully fledged novels by age 15), and I try to post thought provoking, open and honest posts. When I’m not blogging or working on personal projects, you’ll find me in a suit in Canary Wharf where I work full-time in Investment Banking, or at the gym (I started my health & fitness journey in July 2017). I graduated with a BSc in Accounting & Finance from the LSE.
