Hanuel Journal: My Story

Check out My Story on Hanuel Journal

"My mission in life is not merely to survive but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour and some style." - Maya Angelou

Hi Everyone! Hope you guys are enjoying your week.. Happy Hump Day!! I just wanted to quickly share my interview/article with Hanuel with you. Hanuel is a jewelry and accessories company that's located in the DMV area. A few months back, they reached out to me and asked if they can share my story. I immediately researched the company and found nothing but great things about them. I came across and read their Journal, beautifully and well written stories about some amazing women. Long story short, I met with one of the owners (LOVE HER!), started the planning, and had a photo shoot with them. Hanuel is by far one of the most amazing company I've worked with. I love the fact that they don't only sell Jewelry, they care for people and want to highlight women that are doing some amazing things. It is such a honor to be a part of their Journal.

Below is a snippet of what you'll read on

"Bright, bold & creative. These are qualities that we admire deeply & seek for ourselves at Hanuel, and it's probably why we were so drawn to Yetunde. Bright. Bold. Creative. With her hands, the help of her trusty sewing kits & ah-mazing fabrics, she creates such vibrant garments that make us question our own neutral-based wardrobes. (Side note: We are definitely adding more color to our closets this spring.
At a young age, she watched her mother sew beautiful Nigerian traditional attire. But it wasn't until 2011 that Yetunde found her passion for sewing & designing. And it set off a wildfire in her. Since then, she creates & blogs at and co-founded Pretty Girls Sew in 2013 -- a community of "avid sewers and DIY enthusiasts" that invites women to "Learn. Inspire. Show off"! And as if that wasn't already enough, Yetunde recently launched her own line at** Pop the champagne! ** She's awesome, right??
But what really makes Yetunde special is the heart behind her many talents. She shares her passion freely so that others can learn & join her. Through projects that give back to those in need, she spreads compassion & joy. You know our favorite quote from Maya Angelou, the one we post repeatedly? "My mission in life is not merely to survive but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour and some style." These words describe her perfectly. This is Yetunde, a Color-Loving Sewing Maven."
