Hi, I am Riya.

I’m an empathic storyteller with a creative eye for all things beauty and love - That’s the professional description of me, but who am I really?


I am actually:


  • A 32yr old girl, based out of Kannapolis, NC
  • A mother to a beautiful 6yr old girl
  • A Hockey fan
  • A coffee snob
  • An unapologetic picky eater
  • A lover of fashion
  • As witty as they come
  • A motocross lover
