IFB asked “What’s Your Thing” and I had to stop and contemplate.
What IS my thing? Who am I? Well, allow me to re-introduce myself.
Hi! I’m Neo, of AhhhSoNeo. And yes, Neo really is my full name. It’s Setswana, and I was born and bred in the beautiful country of Botswana.
I’m a wife, a mother, a professional, an African, a philanthropist, and according to my daughter, a “lady-shopper”! I one hundred percent consider myself a lady, and if you have visited my blog before then you know that I do enjoy shopping. I’m a make-up fanatic; a purse-lover and a regular church-attendee. In total, I’m your typical blogger-girl trying to leave yet another foot-print on the world.
Even though I’m not a fashionista nor a makeup artist, I love fashion and make-up and love to dabble. I try to donate as much as I spend; I love to see other women do well and I will always celebrate the female spirit and God-spirit in all of us.
What’s my goal with this blog? Well, I’m still trying to figure that out. I like to inspire and motivate, I like to educate and I like to live life. This is really a journal of my passion – makeup. I like to try on make-up and swatch it for my readers. It’s not often that we see high-end make-up on women of colour. I guess this is the perspective of the everyday woman on beauty. The non-guru who still has an opinion!
I definitely want to expand this blog to include my other life, that as a motivator and counselor, and a creative. I’m a writer and artist by nature. It’s impossible for me to stop writing. I’m also passionate about art. I don’t get to paint as often as I would like, but you could leave me in a studio for hours and I wouldn’t even notice. I’m also a dancer, I was laughing at my lil collection of ballet, tap and contemporary dance shoes during the recent move to our new house. I don’t know if I’m good or not, I’ve only ever made it onto one professional team, but boy, is it fun!!
Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog, and following on instagram!
This post will probably transition into my new About Me page, with a few stats about my skin and such thrown in. Thanks to everyone who already follows, and if you are new to the blog – WELCOME! Stick around. Stay Blessed.
