Akeshi Akinseye

A little about me. I was born in Michigan and raised in Nigeria. I’m a lover of all things fabulous from events to home decor and travel. I am a workaholic but I love my play time too. I swear by hard work and dedication. I come from a family of entrepreneurs from design to hospitality. So it's safe to say planning and design is in my blood. 

A little bit about my work! I started my first company, Kesh Events in 2012 while planning my own wedding in Chicago. Since its launch, I started my design company- Kesh Designs . When I am not producing events, I teach a series of design masterclasses that offers mentorship and education to industry professionals, The Kesh Experience. My job takes around the world and feel so blesses to be able to do what I love - creating unforgettable memories for my clients.

I launched my first book "The Art Of Floral And Event Design" available on Amazon and signed copies on my site. These last five and half years has been an adventure and there is nothing else I would rather be doing.

I started this blog to share some of my everyday experiences and interests from travel , fashion, design, travel and fitness. I also want to share some tips and advice for fellow entrepreneurs and the not so pretty stuff. I really wanted a place where I could share my story and where entrepreneurs can relate to the beauty and difficulties of running a business. Thank you for sharing my journey with me. I hope you enjoy the blog xx
