Hello again!

I’m Yasmina and this is the obligatory ‘about me’ page.

I’m a Freelance Digital Content Creator & Photographer. Freelancing has given me an amazing opportunity to explore an assortment of skills and techniques, if you would like to check out my work or browse my services please visit; https://yjmcreative.com/

As for me personally, I’m a Northern lass in my late twenties and a chippy tea is a staple dinner in my household. I am dyslexic and have completed my FdA in Fashion Retail & Enterprise which taught me a huge deal about managing my learning difficulties and thriving in a creative environment.

Since this blog’s conception in 2014, my site has seen a consistent ebb and flow of weird and wonderful musings on society and my experience of it all. From beauty reviews to body confidence mantras and everything in between, this online space has been a little slice of happiness, honesty and self-indulgence (although I hope my readers get some enjoyment out of it too!).

Being open about my personal struggles on this blog has been incredibly liberating and I’ve found speaking honestly about issues such as depression, anxiety and my experience of coming out has opened my eyes to an incredibly supportive community – and for that I can only say thank you. 

I would love for you to become part of this support network and feel like this site is a safe space for you and me to relate, escape or confide in each other. If you read anything on this site and would like to talk further about it please drop me an email (hello@yasminamagdy.com) or DM me on my socials (@yasminamagdy_).

What to do next?

My "day job" is YJM Creative. This is where I offer social media management and digital content creation including photography and editorial print design. It's also home to my portfolio which I like to share with prospective employers. If you would like to find out more about how I can help you or your business or perhaps you just fancy a browse at a couple of things I've been creating, head on over to YJM Creative

good morning! how are we all feeling? I took a week off socials for a number of different reasons but the main one being I had no glasses to see my phone. the other reason is because my medication has changed so I’m constantly feeling tired and unmotivated to do anything, I can imagine if you have mental health issues you could probably understand how I’m feeling however I’m really going to try and get the posi vibes back just bare with me for a couple of days. I really want to turn my insta into more of a community and share more of my life and more varied content so let me know any accounts that you love or content you enjoy viewing 🥤 #seethegram #ourbloggingtribe #nebloggerstyle #adoseofme #creativegalgang #ukbloggersstyle #lovelysquare #discoverunder2k #nebloggers #pétitejoys #bloggershare #feedaesthetic #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalheathwarrior #costacoffeeworld #relaxandunwind #chillouttime #detailshots #shinyhappybloggers #blogandbeyond #postitfortheaesthetic #morningthought #thisishowihueit #chattycaptioncommunity #mondaycoffee #mondaymoods #theuncoolclub #lifestylebloggeruk #frostino

happy bank holiday weekend everyone! I’m going to try and take part in #theflowerpowerchallenge this month however because I’m late to the party I’ve not planned any content so here’s me in a floral number. today’s prompt is ‘April showers bring May flowers’ which is mentally fitting! I want to try and leave the neggy vibes behind because I’m sick of letting my current personal life effect how I live my days. I went out for a walk this morning along the beach and it was perfect and refreshing. If you’ve also seen my story, my brummy bestie has got me a massive bar of chocolate and funniest card to cheer me up and say thank you which was the loveliest surprise I’ve had all week. friendships are super difficult to make in your 20s but once you find your people, try and remember them because they are important and will be there for you even in the darkest of times! how are we all? are you having a social weekend or are you keeping it quiet? 💐 #seethegram #adoseofus #averagegirlsize #curvygals #nebloggerstyle #lovelysquare #aestheticstyle #springoutfitideas #beautybeyondsize #selfloveclub #midsizegals #curvyconfidence #theuncoolclub #mycuriousgang #todaysdetails #softaesthetic #inbetweensizes #fashiondailypost #ourbloggingtribe #creativegalgang #plussizebabes #plussizewears #aestheticoutfit #selfloveisthebestlove #bodyposipals #outfitscrapbook #wednesdaysgirl #thecreativemonth #springaesthetic

happy Monday insta gang! how are we all feeling this morning? I’m surprisingly feeling a bit more positive than usual, perhaps it’s the new anti depressants kicking in. what’s the plan for this week? I would love it if you could tell me one good thing that you are looking forward too. I think there’s definitely two different people when it comes to this outfit combo: the ones who love it and the ones who hate it, I’m definitely the first! I’ve been saying for the past two weeks I want to go to the metro centre so fingers crossed I can fit that in sometime this week 🧡💖 #averagegirlsize #size16style #ootd #springfashion #springoutfit #averagegirlsize #whatiworetoday #wiwt #seethegram #plussizebabes #ourbloggingtribe #nebloggerstyle #adoseofme #creativegalgang #plussizeandme #ukbloggersstyle #lovelysquare #discoverunder2k #plussizewears #nebloggers #pétitejoys #bodyposipals #dressmyfashion #wearthisnext #bloggershare #mirroroutfits #lucyandyak #daisystreet #confidentlycolourful #feedtheaesthetic #yakmirrorselfiemonday
