Hi, I'm Raye! I'm a 21-year-old fashion-obsessed city-slicker who plans outfits in place of counting sheep (what can I say, it soothes me). Not to be trite, but I've pretty much been writing ever since I could hold a pen. When I was young, I wrote short stories and shared them with my family and most trusted teachers. In elementary school, I started an online diary called Raye's World, on Piczo. When Piczo shut down (RIP, sweet prince), I took a long hiatus from blogging. It wasn't until I started working as a stylist that I realized how much I loved talking about fashion - and that people cared about what I said. So I started this page as a portfolio of my writing, my style, and my favourite things.


I mean, a lot. The thing is, this isn't just a fashion blog - it's also where I'll post personal essays, talk about beauty products I've been loving, or really anything else that comes to mind. If there's a fantastic book I'm reading, or I want to chat pop culture, that'll go up too. It's a little bit of everything... so there's your answer; I want everything.

Now, between studying English at Ryerson University, writing for publications like College Fashion and Her Campus Media, putting blog posts up and working full-time as a content writer, I'm basically writing 24/7 - and I wouldn't have it any other way! During the few hours when I'm not writing, you can find me shopping, styling outfits, browsing Pinterest or snuggling up with my cats and watching Netflix.
