For those of you who've been following me on social media for a while, you'll remember that I used to run a blog called AT711, but deleted it after one, unaccredited publication in 'The New Era'. I thought, "if The New Era doesn't know who I am, no one will!" and decided to quit blogging for good. (Me? Irrational? Never.)

A couple of months later, after some much needed growing up, I decided to turn my resignation into a hiatus and thus, nameyajacobs was born!

Here are a few facts about me so that we can get to know each other a little better, virtually.

My name is Nameya Jacobs and I was born on the 7th of November 1997, which makes me 19 years old right now. I live in a small apartment in Cape Town with two of my cousins, Norman and Nona. Despite the fact that I live with two boys, which means double the amount of air-freshener we have to buy, they're the best roommates.

I love all things beauty, fashion and lifestyle and hope to become a part-time blogger and full-time editor-in-chief of ELLE South Africa one day, (Emilie Gambade, here I come!) I'm about to start my first year of college at CityVarsity for Journalism & Digital Media, furthering my plans of becoming a millionaire by 25. No big deal.

If you'd like to see more of me, check out my Instagram, Twitter and YouTube channel.

Here's to a new year, new me, am I right ladies?
