This is basically a not-so-little blurb about myself and the point of this blog. I’m twenty-two years old (now 23) and live in Brooklyn, NY. I’ve lived here my entire life but Manhattan is my playground since it’s basically where I spend all of my time. Catch me in Soho or the Upper East Side. I moved around a bit when I used to dorm for college but I moved back home to finish and New York City has always been home. This city is the epitome of fashion and inspires my sense of style in many ways.

Why fashion:

I’m in love with fashion and am ever developing my sense of style. I turned to fashion as an outlet when I was younger and dealing with your average preteen struggles of school and friendship. Since then, I’ve been hooked. Some of my favorite designers include: Chanel, Dior, Balmain, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander McQueen. They keep me inspired. I’d describe my style as classic with a modern touch. What can I say? Some trends can be fun. I also always have my eye on vintage pieces as well, so that ties into it too.

Why beauty:

I’ve been interested in makeup ever since I started high school. But at the time, the most I wore was winged liner every now and then. I didn’t truly start wearing makeup until a little past my twenty-second birthday. Being that I’m still twenty-two, I’m no pro. I’m always looking to learn and improve my skills, try new products, and find what works for me. I have an adventurous side that doesn’t always transcend in my sense of style but does with the makeup looks I want to create. It’s a journey and hopefully it’ll be a good one to read about.

Finally, this blog:

This isn’t my first blog as I’ve had a fashion blog before: lamodedejuline.blogspot.com. I created it at age fourteen and deleted it around age sixteen. This is one of my regrets. I’ve missed blogging so much that I’m ready for round two.

This blog will be about fashion, beauty, and the little things in between. By that I mean there will also be posts about playlists (since music is one of my obsessions), interior design, as I update my room (fun fact: I’m moving soon), great reads (I’m always reading new books), cool new recipes, and reviews on places to eat and see. With that in mind, you may be wondering why I don’t just make the theme of this blog a lifestyle one. The reason is that the main focus will be on fashion and beauty posts. That means current trends, style tips, product reviews, and makeup looks are a small example of what I will mainly post. Other posts will be few and far in-between but never-the-less they will be there. There will also be posts on fun projects that revolve around my learning to design and create my own clothes, so stay tuned for that.

Overall, I’m very excited for this blog.

Thanks for reading all of this, if you’ve made it this far. I hope that you enjoy this blog whether you’re a one time reader or a daily visiter.
