Beauty, hair and culture blogger extraordinaire. Often imitated, never duplicated. According to some, I'm the Godmother of Brown Beauty Blogging!
Trinidadian-born writer Patrice Grell Yursik created Afrobella.com to fill a void and to celebrate the inner and outer beauty of women all shades of beautiful. Her award-winning blog shines a loving light on natural hair and the wonderfully wide range of gorgeous skin tones and sizes women come in.
Afrobella has been featured in Essence, Ebony, Glamour, the Trinidad Guardian, and Fast Company. Patrice has contributed her writing to Vogue Italia's Vogue Black, Essence, Essence.com, Newsweek.com, and Ebony.com. She has been featured in print advertising campaigns for haircare brand Cream of Nature and online ads for cosmetics brand Lancome, spoken at the University of Notre Dame and Columbia College, and co-hosted events for brands including Bali Shapewear, Huetiful and Carol's Daughter. Afrobella recently partnered with MAC Cosmetics to create her own custom lipglass called "All Of My Purple Life," as part of the limited edition Bloggers' Obsession collection.
