I’m Carla, a 20-something Mozambican native, that spends most days juggling between studying, a 9-5 and managing my own entrepreneurial pursuits one of them being this little digital project of mine that you’re on right now!

CARLA XIII BLOG is my creative outlet and as you can see, my interests are an assorted combination of fashion, beauty, travel, visual inspirations, musings, music and home decor. I currently use the beautiful vibey city of Johannesburg as my backdrop to showcase my personal take on the new African narrative of young African millennials, personal style and daily living.


CARLA XIII BLOG [XIII pronounced “shee”] is the brainchild of Mozambican born, South African bred creative, digital influencer, marketing professional and fashion business enthusiast Carla Fernandes.
A personal style blog focused on fashion, beauty and lifestyle on a carefully curated platform that reflects a new african narrative of style, diversity, creativity and everything in between. Carla’s mission is to develop inspirational and expressive fashion, beauty and lifestyle content with her personal touch. The CARLA XIII BLOG reader is no different to her, young, aspirational, ambitious and on a constant search for imaginative expressions, daily musings and ultimate style.
