Graduating with a 2:1 BA Hons English Literature degree, Nixalina left UEA and stepped into a Fashion & Beauty Writer role at a London Magazine. Here, she was promoted to Assistant Editor of their subsidary fashion and lifestyle website and gained extensive knowledge in both the publishing industry and digital media. She moved on to become a qualified Make-up Artist at London's Selfridges, where she gained a Beauty Diploma. Whilst working at Selfridges, she decided to utilise her past skills and experience to set up her own fashion and beauty blog 'Sex & London City' in 2011.
S&LC delivers on-trend fashion, beauty, dating and lingerie features, as well as articles on events in and around London that she personally attends. She also delivers insightful and honest articles on the witty and brutal reality of being a single woman looking for love in the Big Smoke. The relationship and dating features have attracted global followers and have prompted her nickname throughout the industry as London's real-life answer to 'Carrie Bradshaw'. She is now the number one Sex & Dating Expert in London and the go-to girl for all sex, dating and love press requests.
