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

We popped to Turkey for the day and explored Bodrum. It was a beautiful and definitely a different experience to what I imagined. 

We attempted to find the market but couldn’t so we ended up looking around a castle with some stunning panoramic views.

Definitely worth taking the time to do it if you are close to Kos town! 🇹🇷🦚

I’ve made it! As an anxious flyer, I have been extremely nervous about coming on holiday but 24hrs later I have felt the most relaxed that I’ve been in a very long time. Can’t wait to explore Kos with @jameslee9211 ☀️🏖️

I fancied joining in on the trend and it made the insomnia easier to deal with last night too. Can I also just say how well James knows me and my favourites?! 🥰

Hello instagrammers! I’ve been gone for a little while but that’s because I had an important meeting last week and I needed some time to reflect on the news. I’m back and ready to reintroduce myself.

I’m Yasmina and I am autistic!! 🙌🏼

After a lifetime of believing I was the black sheep of every social group, being tested for ADHD and spending nearly two years with the mental health team; I’ve found out that I am autistic. I spent two hours talking to the nurse about questions to do with my childhood and how I deal with situations now and she gave me a diagnosis there and then. The assessment was so different compared to what I read online and so many people have different experiences. 

I have felt a mix of emotions but most importantly I feel relieved. It feels like it is part of the answer as to why I’ve found it so difficult to make friends, to understand people and what society expects of me. It has made me understand why I find it so confusing when no one talks about my special interests or why I find it difficult to put myself in other people’s shoes. 

I wish I could speak to all my past friendships and try again with the understanding of who I am now but I understand that may not be possible so instead I am looking forward. I am excited about being able to accept myself for who I am and learn more about my true self! 🥰🎊
