Hey there,


Well, obviously my name is Gbemisola Ero-Phillips (aka Mrs Ilesanmi). I’m a bundle of contradictions. But let me tell you what I know for sure:


I am God’s very special baby girl. I am a creative, which means I’m always bustling with ideas and how to make things better. I enjoy writing and hope to someday publish my book (I should have done this 2 years ago but my life has been full of beautiful disruptions). I retail health & beauty products (check us out @aprilsglow on all social media) and maybe one day, I’ll have a beauty blog. In the meantime, I earn my keep working as Head of Content for Africa’s leading eCommerce platform during the day. I also waste my time doing useless internet research.


Ah, yes. J is my partner and Baby F is my son-shine. I swore I didn’t want kids but look at me. Talk about beautiful disruptions. I like to think that I’m a good friend and sister to a lot of people. But that’s really up to them to decide. I’m a shameless feminist. I understand the restrictions on women living their best, bravest lives, especially in our part of the world. It makes the work all the more important.


I hope I get to meet you soon.
