Who am I and why am I here?
Thank you for stopping by my new blog. I wanted to share a bit about who I am and why I am here!
My name is Akeshi Akinseye and I am a party planner and event designer. I started my first company 4.5 years ago and it's been one heck of a ride. No complaints whatsoever. I launched my first book "The Art of Floral And Event Design" last November and also teach aspiring designers the art of floral design. I consider myself lucky and blessed to have accomplished what I have in that time
I started keeping a daily entry about a year and half ago. This was something my idol, Preston Bailey suggested in one of his books and It's been an amazing outlet for me. I enter anything that's on my mind at that moment and I find it therapeutic. Lately, I found myself needing an outlet to share my experiences and journey on a personal and business level with the world. I will be writing about my everyday experiences from planning and designing events, travel, food and my newest love, fitness. It is my hope that what I write about will touch, help or motivate someone reading. So join me on this exciting journey as I share the good, bad and even the ugly. Please subscribe to receive alerts for new blog entries.
