Usually when it comes to telling people about myself, I am usually pretty mum for I like to be kept a mystery, but I thought I would take this opportunity to allow readers to get to know me a little bit better. I did mention previously that I wanted to take a more personal route with my blog and well, that was about 2,3,4 months ago *dramatic sigh* I better wrap this up before Kanye grabs the mic and proceeds to talk to the youth about his album Swish/Waves/So Help Me God and the impact it’s about to create like we haven’t heard him mention it before. Anyways, enjoy 24 fun facts about me below, GO!
1.) My name is Camille and I am twenty-something years old.
2.) I want to buy a set of vintage Gucci matchbooks just to say that I in fact own a set of vintage Gucci matchbooks.
3.) I love travelling! I’ve travelled to Paris, Barcelona, Moraira, Valencia, Hawaii x 3, Arizona x 2, Vegas x 2, Los Angeles x 2, New York x 2, Mexico x 3 and I really, really want to visit Japan along with South America.
4.) I enjoy visiting art galleries, museums, libraries and record stores (put that on my online dating profile).
5.) My full name is Camille Anwuli MacLean. After typing my full name, I just realized that it is an acronym for the first 3 letters of my first name which is C-A-M (you’re probably judging me at this point).
6.) I received my Bachelor or Arts Degree two years ago. I studied Sociology and Education.
7.) I volunteer teach English as a Second Language to a group of Canadian newcomers which inspired me to hopefully pursue a career abroad.
8.) My 9-5 is working for a real estate brokerage and my 5-9 is SYLXO.
9.) My mom, Aaliyah, Aleali May, and Alicia Keys are my go-to when it comes to my personal style. They are also the epitome of strong black women who have overcome a hurdle of obstacles to get to where they are at today and not once did they have to change who they were to get approval from others 🙂
10.) I love sneakers and all things streetwear, it’s in my blood (tomboy @ heart)!
11.) My favourite sneakers will forever be the Air Jordan OG Bred 1’s.

13.) I’m both an introvert and an extrovert.

17.) I have deep appreciation for 90’s hip hop culture and could talk about it for hours. My Uncle Richard is quite the hip-hop head and he got me on to Wu-Tang, Mos Def, Tupac, A Tribe Called Quest, Lauryn Hill, Mobb Deep, and Nas (aka my future ex-boyfriend + fiancé+ husband + father to my unborn child). Props to Uncle Richard’s ears!
