WHY MINISKIRTS AND MICROPHONES?
My love for all things fashion and news is what birthed this website! I wanted to marry my love for clothes, shoes and stilettos with my love for news and entertainment into a site that represents my personality. So MiniSkirts and Microphones was born! I’m a daughter, a sister, a media fanatic, a journalist, a former TV anchor, reporter and news editor living and working in The Bahamas! Since I was 16-years-old, I worked as a reporter at several media houses locally…signing in, being handed assignments, chasing politicians, criminals, celebrities, as well as the day’s news. But it feels as if I was ball and chained to my desk, being sucked into the old school, traditional media platforms that weren’t allowing me the freedom I so desired.
With a passion for entertainment journalism, social media, content creation and being an influencer to the world; the 7 o’clock news nor the smell of the ink still drying on the day’s newspaper did it for me anymore.
That’s when I decided to take a chance on myself and quit my job! See the blog on that here!
I now work as a freelance journalist and media specialist, TV show host and producer, commercial script writer and voice over, travel writer and lifestyle and entertainment blogger…and I must say it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made!
I take a lot of my life, infuse it with pop culture and sprinkle a little bit of news in my writing!
I love to travel and I love to share those experiences with my readers! From Spain to Puerto Rico to Dubai…I share all of my travel stories here. I’m a storyteller at heart, so I get to the nitty gritty of my trips and try to write beautiful pieces on them. I also go heavy with the phots so you get a bird’s eye view of what I saw, where I stayed and…my favorite part…what I ate!
As a woman, a girlfriend, a sister…a human being, I encounter so many things on a daily basis, and I love to write about them! Relationships, good days, bad days, weird encounters, life lessons…I’ll share all my tales with you. I love to especially write about the things that affect us as women and the relationships that make us.
HEALTH + BEAUTY + FASHION
Shoes, clothes, fashion trends, lipsticks…I love it all! That’s why I post about them! I’m such a girly girl and self-proclaimed fashionista! LOL! On here you can see my favorite outfits, the details of what I wore and where I got it, details of the outfits from my trips and new health and beauty finds and hacks I’ve come across.
NEWS + CURRENT ISSUES
I am a news reporter. It’s where I started, it’s what I love. And while I don’t miss sitting in a newsroom, I love keeping up with the headlines and sometimes writing about them, putting my spin on them and making them MiniSkirts and Microphones ready! I follow celebrities, pop culture and fitness trends closely! A little news topped with some fun and conversational analysis is how I deliver these stories!
