Sisters Nasteha and Nuni Yusuf are originally from Somalia, raised in Toronto, Canada, and now live in Columbus, Ohio. Growing up as young girls, they always enjoyed fashion and beauty. They often looked to one another for inspiration and found it especially enjoyable to mix and match clothing from their different styles. Their love affair with fashion has led them to team up and create a business around what they truly love. Other than their work on social media working with different notable brands, the girls also run their own creative studio THE MILLENNIAL SUITE and also own a jewelry line YCOLLECTIONS.
After 6 months from starting our blog, we both decided to quit our full time jobs, and pursue our passion and treat it like a real business and we have not looked back since.
We use a Canon 5 Mark II for high definition photos when working with brands. But to be honest, we love to snap pictures on our iphones while in the moment. We realized our supporters love to see a relaxed and effortless feed.
Staying consistent with creating content and engaging and building an audience of people we respect and value has really helped give us the confidence to continue over the years.
Its takes a village to raise a child and we are so fortunate to have supportive husbands and a big family that is super helpful. Creating a schedule is a major key when it comes to making sure you never miss out on quality family time and special moments.
Long story short, Nasteha got married and moved to Ohio to be with her husband who is from there. Years later, Nuni met her husband while visiting Nasteha in Ohio and ending up moving there too.
At the time we were living in 2 different countries (Nasteha was in the US, and Nuni was living in Canada). We both shared the same interest and have both dreamed of starting a fashion blog but we were too scared to finally take the steps to just start. We were inspired by our niece to start together and it ended up being a really great idea because we work so well together and continue to push each.
