About me

Who is Dee Bell?

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style” — Maya Angelou

Dee Bell is an established lifestyle blogger, social media influencer, digital content creator, and visual storyteller. Her photos have been exhibited at the Museum of the City of New York and in the Riverside Park Fund Journal. 

Ms. Bell was an early adopter of social platforms and has successfully blogged since 2006. Prior to blogging, she created online content on the web and hosted online forums. She has been featured in the pages of New York Daily News, quoted by the Associated Press, and was a contributor to the Hometown Tourist, Examiner.com, Black Atlas and other online publications. Her lifestyle brands focus on food, culture, and travel.

After building the blog Uptownflavor for 7 years, Ms. Bell decided to pack up and move out of New York. Upon settling in the nation's capital she launched a second lifestyle blog, BeyondBrunch, then 5 years later a travel blog, She Jaunts.
