Hi everyone, I’m Ayshen
A Hackney-born and Essex-raised- and-based lifestyle blogger. I like to think my love for blogging was somewhat inevitable – it’s a running joke in my family that I’ve always been a bit of a walking-talking blog before launching www.Ayshenofficial.com. My blog posts are real life stories featuring parts of my life with my amazing fiancé Simon, my love for fashion, product and make-up reviews, food, my personal style, fitness workouts, travelling, family life as well as anything else my life journey takes me… it’s going to be one hell of a year and I’d love to share it with all of you. I have grown (not in height may I add ha!) and changed so much as a person over the years and so has my style and thoughts on make-up, fashion and beauty. Speaking of beauty, I recently passed my
professional make-up course, which makes me a qualified make-up artist now (whoop whoop!) When I’m not blogging and being creative, i’m working as a PA on a busy trading floor of an investment bank in London. Oh, and I’m also in the middle of planning my summer wedding with the help of a very long to do list (eeek!)
Fashion and music
I come from a large tight-knit Turkish family of creatives, so it was only natural that I fell in love with music and fashion at a young age. My dad was in a band with his brothers in the late 1960s and early 1970s and most of my family are still connected to music in some way or another.
Growing up, my mum was a seamstress and my dad was a clothes pattern cutter. They would sometimes come home with factory samples from amazing brands such as Topshop and Gina. My sister and I didn’t know any better at the time, but the reality has since sunk in that we were head-to-toe in the latest clothes from a very young age.
Fast forward to today and key pieces from my wardrobe have graced the pages of OK! Magazine and on Daily Mail fashion finder – including my engagement dress! I’ve also been lucky enough to be styled by fashion stylist Gemma Sheppard with gorgeous clothes from NET-A- PORTER.
Two things you might not know about me… I was in a girl group called Fe-nix Ladies back in 2008 before leaving to launch my own fashion collection Amosh in 2012. The journey was fun, but blogging is my calling. My own little space in the virtual world.
Simon proposed on 1 st Feb 2017 on the last night while holidaying in Jamaica. It was the most incredible moment of my life. I’m so excited to plan my special day and marry my best friend (but more about that later).
