Hi, I’m Nic Manshon.
Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career. 
If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject. 
Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while. Soon enough I realized that it wasn’t for me. Nonetheless, I believe nothing is lost with learning.
After having these feelings to change my career, I started exploring creativity again. That was a good choice!
The journey started out at CPUT, studying industrial design and serving at a local church, heading up the media department. After that, I got a scholarship for digital filmmaking at SAE. I never received a scholarship before so I was super stoked to do the course, not realizing what the future may hold.

I'm a proudly Zimbabwean, Stellenbosch University graduate that has been in the modelling industry for 6 years. I have been so blessed to have featured in dozens of local and international Tv commercials and campaigns, from Pepsi to Malibu Rum, WeChat and Mweb. Fashion and beauty brands include Levi's Jeans, Nivea, C&A Germany and Exclamation Perfume.
The print publications I have featured in range from SA Sports Illustrated, to Seventeen Magazine, HUFF and 708 Magazine in the US, and a cover for Parade Magazine in Zimbabwe, to name just a few. 

In 2016 I branched out into Tv presenting for Spice tv which airs in the UK & Nigeria, covering red carpet interviews with the country's hottest designers and celebs at SA FASHION week and SA Menswear Week. 

It felt like a natural progression into fashion blogging this year, as a way to share with my followers my style & beauty tips, and how to wear the latest fashion trends - without breaking the bank! We need to stop buying the hype that you have to wear Loubitins and other such labels to look good!

With regards to my downtime, I'm very much a 'home body', and in my spare time I like to relax at home with my family and friends, enjoy good food and have a laugh. (Side note: the way to my heart is with food! So if you're a fellow foodie you are all good in my books) 

At the end of the day I just want to be to be a positive role model to the youth in my country back home, showing them that with an education, a dream and honest hard work you can really be anything - as cheesy and cliché as it may sound.
