My name is Ronke Adeola, I’m a Beauty & Lifestyle Influencer/Youtuber (Subscribe to my youtube here) based in DMV.
I was born in the US and lived more than half of my life in Nigeria, so I consider myself as a Nigerian – American because I’m a little bit of both. I got married last year and now less than a year later I’m pregnant with our first child, which is super exciting for me and pushed me to relaunch my blog.
I love inspiring women through beauty and created special makeup tutorials called Inspira-torials (inspiring makeup tutorials that promote self love/ Share stories) and a movement called #beautyreexamined where women post their no makeup selfies to show that they are beautiful either way. I’ve always been extremely into makeup but it has evolved to much more and I created my blog as an extension of myself and my interests.
Belle Ame was actually the name of my old blog that I had when I was in college (about 7 years ago) and it has always been a place that I revisit to reconnect to my true self. I used to post everyday on a blog that I had no readers or commenters but there was something more driving me – creativity. Belle Ame is the french word for “Beautiful Soul”, that ties into my favorite quote “beauty isn’t only skin deep” meaning that while someone may be beautiful on the outside, their character—what’s inside, and more meaningful—isn’t necessarily attractive. Character can be built and while we work on the outward through makeup we should work on the inward also. My main goal is for people to come to my blog and leave feeling beautiful, inspired, motivated, and mentally energized.
