The Luxe Minimalist was launched in 2013 after realizing I no longer felt connected to my original blog, Studded Bows, which I created in 2009 after graduating high school. I’ve always been passionate about writing, fashion, & beauty, so my blog quickly became my outlet to share what I was wearing and what products I was experimenting with.
Growing up in the amazing but small city of New Orleans, LA, I often dreamed of moving to New York City to work in beauty & fashion. After writing for a local lifestyle publication and graduating from the University of New Orleans with a B.A. in English – Journalism, my time had finally come. I packed up my room and headed to Brooklyn, NY where I broke into the beauty PR & Influencer Marketing industry, working with some of my favorite brands including as NET-A-PORTER, MAKE UP FOR EVER, African Pride Haircare, Tangle Teezer, and so many others. Having worked professionally in the beauty industry as a writer, publicist, and influencer marketing manager has given me a unique perspective that helps me create content that’s unique, visually pleasing, and engaging from a storytelling aspect.
