Best piece of advice?
My best piece of advice is something I’m learning now — you’re never too young or too old to start over. Live your life unapologetically and pursue your dreams wholeheartedly!
Favourite coffee shop?
My absolute favoyrite coffee shop is Ophelia Coffee (@opheliacafeza) in Johannesburg, South Africa. The decor is simple and chic and their coffee is an absolute treat — they also have really good food.
Favourite book or podcast?
My favourite book is Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie — I can read it over and over again. My favourite podcast is Second Life with Hillary Kerr and I love it because Hillary interviews women entrepreneurs about their newfound passions and careers.
Beauty product you can’t live without?
Definitely SPF! I make sure to apply it religiously every day.
Tell us a bit about yourself..
Hi! My name is Kelsey Marie and I am a New York girl living in Johannesburg, South Africa! I am an artist, content creator and writer who enjoys coffee and aesthetically pleasing spaces. I love exploring new cities and observing other’s perspectives of the world!
What does style mean to you?
To me, style means a way to express yourself unapologetically. I enjoy walking into a room, not saying much but everyone being able to get a feel for the type of person I am based on my style. Style is an art form and I take pride in cultivating my personal style on a daily basis.
Are there any causes or charities that you support?
I am passionate about literacy. I believe that everyone should be given a chance to learn to read and access to books. Books transform you to different time periods and locations and it’s a great escape.
What piece of RIXO do you love or have your eye on and why?
I love RIXO because all of the pieces are original and seems like great quality. The Serena is definitely top of my wishlist!
