Hello there, I’m Jenifer Vanderhorst the blogger. Pretty-N-Poppington is an outlet for me to explore and discuss urban culture, entertainment, and lifestyle. Everything that is posted on PnP comes from that expressive space in my head that’s always itching to get out and talk about any and everything. I am from Charleston, SC born and raised, and I love to post and showcase independent artist of all genres, local events, and eatery’s, from the Charleston area. Charleston is a beautiful place to live and it was more beautiful growing up . We have a tremendous amount of black culture, success, and beautiful life here in Charleo, and It means a lot to me to showcase the black positivity that my city has to offer.
I started PrettynPoppington back in 2010. I started it because I lost my creativity. I wasn’t working for MAC Cosmetics any longer (after a seven year tenure.) I wasn’t practicing as a licensed esthetitian (I’ve been licensed now for thirteen years) and I was no longer traveling and working in the entertainment industry as a freelance makeup artist. So, I didn’t have that much needed outlet of expression. I yearned to get back into something that revved my quirky engine, so PrettynPoppington is here and now it’s a thing.
Every now and then you might see a beauty or fashion post from me, because those are also loves of mine. When PnP first got started we were a beauty and fashion blog and we did very well. I decided to go another route because I lost my fashion blogger and did not want to search for anyone else (he was absolutely amazing.) Secondly my industry changed along with my life. Suddenly lifestyle and culture became more important to me, along with supporting my community. I truly hope you enjoy my website and my opinions on all things urban culture, entertainment and lifestyle with a Charleston flare. If you have any suggestions leave a comment. Thank you.
