Now that we’re semi-acquainted, I guess you want to know a bit about this blog and what it will stand for right?
TNL will essentially house my verbose ramblings about beauty with some bits about life, music and other things thrown into the mix – for me, this blog will be a little bit like those mixed bags of lollies you used to get from the milk bar for about 5 cents when you were a kid. (Oh those days…) I don’t want to feel restricted in terms of content and my interests are sort of diverse, so it only stands to reason that I curate this bit of online space as such. Of course, like all things, content could be subject to change down the track; but for now I’m happy to roll with this kind of bigger picture idea I have in my head.
So, what’s behind the blog name you ask?
I consider myself to be a novice at a number of things, from achieving a multi eyeshadow look to mastering a fishtail braid (tool or sans tool) to holding down a conversation with someone new without worrying about awkward silences to, I guess, the delicate art of being human. I firmly believe that even as we grow (and grow older) as human beings, we are still at some stage newbies at something and therefore never stop learning. I’ll be somewhat attempting to celebrate that & a whole lot more with this bloggy blog.
As for the name itself, it’s a play on the phrase “the modest life”. (Get it? Modest, novice, it kind of rhymes doesn’t it? Yeah, I’m a bit of a dork.)
Why I’m doing this
In a nutshell, I guess you could say I had a brainwave, which I may get around to explaining one day in a post. I’ve enjoyed writing in the past & felt that I was decent at it, so here I am, having a go at this whole blogging thing. I really don’t know where I’m headed, but at least I’ve begun pursuing this idea and that for me is an achievement in itself.
Brace yourselves people; we’re in for a ride!
