When starting out in fashion I had no idea I could make a career out of having a little website on the internet. Ten years later my humble blog “bakedtheblog” turned into an award winning social media platform and space for women like me to connect; Baked Online.
Baked Online encompasses everything I represent as a woman who loves all things fashion, beauty, media and motherhood. Take a journey through my thoughts, musings, and brands I currently love as well as anecdotes about my journey into motherhood.
Born and raised in Cape Town, I have a Business Management Bachelors Degree from the University of Cape Town but my true passion has always been in fashion and design. I always imagined owning my own fashion label as a little girl. Coupled with my marketing background that dream turned into building a successful social media and fashion brand. 2020 see’s the launch of my clothing label Baked Collection which will be available on this website!
