Hi! My name is Karis, and I am a professional communicator within the nonprofit world, but mostly I'm someone with big ideas who runs on caffeine and creativity. I was born in West Africa, but have called the U.S. home for the last fourteen years. I am bilingual, speaking French and English, and my favorite food (currently) is Thai Curry. I drink too many cups of coffee, and I try my hand at too many things. If you’re into the Enneagram, I am a Type 7 (look it up, if you’re interested).

The purpose of this blog is to curate a space to express creativity through writing about two things I love to explore in my free time: coffee and fashion. There are so many blogs out there , so in an effort to avoid the bulk of the internet white noise, I’m combining coffee and fashion in a unique blog-blend that is also, admittedly, a little weird. So if you’ve found yourself wondering what content I could possibly create to fit both of these broad topics, I can tell you you aren’t alone.

I am excited to dig deep into my own creative flow to come up with engaging, exciting, probably hilarious content and blog posts about coffee and fashion and how they often intersect.

There is a connection between a velvety flat white sipped on a Parisian balcony and the cool, confident feeling of slipping on a silk blouse and knowing it fits perfectly. To me, coffee pairs well with fashion.

So, pull up a chair, grab a coffee and let yourself get lost in my obvious obsession with drinking coffee and shopping. I hope this blog inspires you to try new things, explore new places, and find your own creative outlet. And if you are interested in connecting professionally, please visit my 'Contact' page. Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on social media. Welcome!

XOXO,

Karis
