Welcome to my LUSH Space — I’m Nemee
Speaking about yourself is never easy. Somehow, when asked about ourselves we all seem to sink into a deep abyss of anonymity where we forget who we are, what we do, and what we value. So from that deep abyss I guess I’ll start with my passions.
I’ve loved reading before I’ve loved anything else. Literature is my favoured form of escapism. I have a fascination with memoirs and biographies—as a child I would spend hours immersing myself into the shoes of someone else. If I couldn’t experience certain things for myself—like being rich, famous, on tour and surrounded by groupies—at least I could read about the experiences of Slash, Kurt Cobain, and Jim Morrison on paper. My favourite books are Heavier Than Heaven by Charles R. Cross and The Best of Everything by Rona Jaffe. My passion for literature has never eased and my dream is to become an editor.
I love the finer things in life: hand-crafted cocktails, indulging in fine foods, sipping Spanish Grenache while reading (preferably in a hot bath with, of course, a bath bomb). I will never be the first to invite you on a hike. Instead, I like to enjoy the fruits of civilization and indulge my hedonistic side. If I were to be any one of the seven deadly sins, I would most definitely be Gluttony.
I earned my Bachlor of Arts in History with International Relations and Political Science with honours distinction. When I finished high school my dream was to work for the Canadian Foreign Service as a political analyst. However, after finishing university I decided this wasn’t the path for me and instead I chose to pursue a career in publishing (which I am currently working towards). I love learning about history, especially twentieth century and political history, and learning more about current events. Two of my favourite political texts are The Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon and The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli. A quirky fact is that I listen to BBC Newshour every morning while I do my make-up (multi-tasking at its best am I right?).
LUSH Space is my space to discuss a variety of topics in my individual, authentic way. I love to write about fashion, food, literature and philosophy, and this is my space to do so.
Welcome, and thanks for being here.
