About Avenue Sixty

Avenue Sixty was created in 2012. Originally titled My Fashion Wants and located at the URL myfashionwants.com, Avenue Sixty began as a magazine style fashion blog with an ambition to become one of the top fashion blogs on the Internet. When that ambition was not realized, the founder decided to use avenuesixty as her own personal diary/journal/newsletter-magazine to live out her modeling fantasies and to keep herself actively engaged in writing–a passion since she was 11 years old.

Avenue Sixty currently focuses on a wide range of lifestyle topics and interests mainly centered around the life of the founder Adela Lewis. Adela has been writing since age 11 and has pursued writing as a career path since her teens. She has been blogging since the early 2000s. However, she is not a journalist or in any capacity a professional writer. Her articles and blog posts are not professionally written or professionally researched content. Any content that appears to give advice on any topic should be recognized as coming from an unqualified source. Unless expressly stated otherwise, articles, even when researched, should be recognized as having been researched and written by a writer who does not possess any qualified knowledge on the subject in question. Avenuesixty content includes articles by guest writers. Guest submissions and submissions by inactive contributors do not reflect the views of avenuesixty.com and it's founder. All articles not written by an author whose name appears under "Contributors", "Guest Contributors" or "Inactive Contributors" have been written by Adela Lewis under the "avenuesixty" and "avenue sixty writing staff" or "Adela" handle, "Monica" for "The Monica Life" and the character handles of Mrs Bodenheimer, Maxine Hightower, Salima and Zenica.

Who's behind it?

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for avenuesixty.com. First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional qualifications and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by qualified persons on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person.
