Hey, I'm Achieng Agutu, Achi for short.

I am a fashion lover, a storyteller, a fine diner, a poet and a dancer. I am a 22-year-old from Kenya currently residing in South Bend, Indiana. I have a passion for  my generation, especially women, embracing their purpose, their true selves and their ability to reach their full potential.

No Ordinary Noire is a fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog created to celebrate, empower and showcase the beauty of women of color through personal style, self care, self love and self acceptance. I believe that when you enhance your vibe, you empower your tribe.

This blog  offers more than a singular view of beauty, living and explorations; it is a multifaceted space that serves as an entry point to help weave the wanderlust, the elegant, and the memorable in our day to day lives.

I document the things that inspire me the most, in hopes that they might also inspire you -- to explore a different way of living, loving and being so that you could live life to the fullest.

Feel free to leave comments, share my posts and follow me on social media!

xoxo,                                                                                                       Achieng
