Hi, they call me Nessa, Nessi and VV, but you can call me Vanessa. I’m a Freelance Journalist & Reporter and PR Specialist. I mainly work in Music & Fashion, but also cover Lifestyle, Film, Current Affairs and Art & Culture. Journalism wise I work with Arise, MTV, Clash, Soulculture, Essence and Earmilk, amongst others. PR wise, I represent a number of brands, including Buyer, Essence Media, Ann Summers and ASOS. I also work in Events Management, Advertising & Visual Styling.
I have a passion for literature, whether it be poetry, story writing, articles or blogging.
London is my home, Milan is my second home and New York is my favourite get away. I like to think I’m a citizen of the world 🙂
I love shopping, Sex and The City, cheese, football, a good cocktail, debates, live music, theatre, fashion, art etc etc etc… The list could go on and on and on.
I love to read – I’m a huge fan of newspapers (broadsheets & tabloids & all those in-between). I LOVE Fashion (& Lifestyle) magazines (Grazia, Elle, Vogue, Cosmo, Company, Look etc). I’m not a huge novel fan, I tend to prefer biographies, but from time to time I like to drift away in a fiction novel – float away in a world of make believe. I love love love music. Music soothes the soul. I couldn’t imagine a life without it.
I’m really into fashion and music, but I have a huge interest in politics and news. My first ever job after uni was working for a newspaper in the news department. I don’t believe you have to fit into one category.
I’m a bit of a girlie girl, but I love my football (Soccer) – Manchester United is my team (Go Red Devils!!!).
Enjoy life to the fullest, live hard, love hard and always give 110 percent. Every body has (some) regrets, but life’s too short to dwell on them. So just keep it moving and focus on what’s great in your life – that’s my motto.
Let’s enjoying life and explore what this cruel yet wonderful world has to offer.
