I want Skylish to be a hub for women – that will inspire, support and empower be it through fashion, beauty, advice or self-motivation.

My name is Kemi Akinboyewa and I’m a 22 year old blogger from London. My cousin made me my first free website when I was 10 years old, from that point I started to slowly teach myself how to code and design websites. When I was 15 I began selling coded webdesigns to a variety of clients, often to fellow bloggers, and I kept this up until I was 18. On the side, I decided to open up a beauty blog; I was obsessed with make up and had no friends that understood my obsession. As time passed, this blog slowly integrated into being a style and lifestyle blog also. I am passionate about self-development, inspiring people, and entrepreneurship, so expect to see posts touching on all of those subjects too. This website has given me the opportunity to work with so many amazing brands, and meet so many amazing people – what started out as a hobby has become such a huge part of my life. I graduated from the LSE in 2016, and now work full-time in Investment Banking, and part-time as a blogger.
