Hello Purfect-Escapists …

I am a human diamond

Just like you I am simple and yet complicated -very rough, unpolished with so much potential to be extraordinary – I am my greatest epiphany and biggest fan. It’s a pleasure meeting you.

From me to you...
From me to you…

An Insight/Analyst by day and a writer/blogger by night (I do have a doppelganger♥). Entirely smitten by Fashion, Entertainment and very strong opinions I tend to speak up through writing.

I love everything gossip/news-worthy in the Afro-international fashion and entertainment industry. I end up making news out of nothing- very escapist I know, but more of a sensationalist!!! I am that busy in my head.

My passion for literary writing inspires the section  of this blog STORIES UNFOLD where I use stories, mostly fictional tales to scrutinise societal issues and bring the shoe that pinches to your foot, so I can get your opinions. I am multi-lingual and speak so many coded languages with no names, but I promise to write in English and French only.

Diamond cover

My belief is  ‘no one dictates how we live our social media lives’ which is why I named my blog Purfect^Escape’ a place where I can escape and be myself with a glass of wine/cup of tea if you are so British and just have a great time.

Some people say I have an uncanny resemblance to Beyonce – I am not sure it’s true so I took an ‘i woke up like this selfie as a test – let me know what you think.


Together we can change the face of our community, build outstanding relationships to forge  positive change in the diaspora and in our personal lives, by learning and sharing life experiences/knowledge as we network on every possible platform.

Let’s maximize this one.

Welcome to my world

My social anthem is Dorobucci- If it helps in anyway, listen to the lyrics and you will know me better… The MAVINS did a great job contextualizing this Doro…


Love Y'all Like OXOX's

    trying to find a way to contact you but cant, so i go just paste am here

    Dear Dorothy,

    As you know, I have followed your blog for a while and really admire your work.
    I know we already spoke about doing a cover but I still wanted to formally send you my appeal!!

    I wanted to come to you given your large sphere of influence in the blogosphere.
    I am trying to put my dream in front of a larger crowd and I immediately thought of you.

    I would be really humbled if you would help me take my #fundfashioninafrica #giveagiftatchristmas dream to your followers and subscribers.
    I started an online shop in Cameroon which can become the ASOS of Africa with the right amount of investment and exposure.
    I have already sunk over £25,000 of my own capital into the business since May 2014 and in June 2015 it has already broke even and surpassed my expectations, the campaign is to seek extra funding and is an all or nothing campaign.

    Would you please help me by featuring my dream and encouraging likeminded people to support and share or allowing me to guest post via your amazing blog?
    I would be truly honoured….
    We have only 15 more days on the ticker to make this dream come true!!

    I have launched on kickstarter via the below link

    I also talk more about the inspiration behind the campaign on my own blog here

    If you are able to suggest or introduce me to a few other likeminded bloggers, press and personalities in this regard I would love you even more!!

    Hoping to hear positively from you soon and hope Soba was a blast!

    Contacts and web below

    best regards

    carpe diem
