“Why be any girl when you can be That IT Girl?”–Maisha

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset


Hey there IT Girls and welcome to my little corner of the World Wide Web!  My name is Maisha, and I am the creator of That IT Girl a blog for women who enjoy the gorgeous aspects of life. I am a proud Nigerian-American from Midwestern, USA with a bachelors degree in nursing from the University of Missouri-Columbia (Mizzzzzzzzou-Raaaaaaah).  After graduating from college I relocated to Texas where I currently work as a Registered Nurse

While I find my career very rewarding and stimulating, I have always been obsessed with makeup, fashion, entertaining, cooking, traveling, and living a charmed life.  In 2009 I made the decision to create That IT Girl to take a fun, and whimsical approach to teaching other women, as well as myself, the art of cultivating the essence of being the “fairer sex.”

My vision for That IT Girl is to be a hybrid one-stop resource of fashion and beauty advice, interviews, lifestyle features, and reviews.  I want to not only uplift all women and help create a sense of confidence, independence and passion for life but challenge them to go against the grain and dare to embrace being a woman.
