Welcome to Simple Essences

"The essence of the beautiful is unity in variety." - W. Somerset Maugham

Hello readers! I'm excited to embark on this journey into the blogging world. I am by no means a particularly talented writer, but my passions in life have inspired me to start this blog that I would like to call, Simple Essences. 

Why Simple Essences? To be honest, I pondered over the perfect blog name for a while. I wanted the perfect words to reflect myself and my passions. I settled on the word "Simple" because I believe that life should not be overcomplicated and that one should really appreciate the simple blessings in life. As for "Essences" it is truly a beautiful word to me with such a simple meaning; in addition, the foundation of my blog is built upon basic ideas rooted in my passions. 

At this point, I have acknowledged "my passions" numerous times so I think it's only appropriate for me to share them with you all. I'm starting this blog because of my love for fitness & healthy living, food, fashion, and beauty! I'm hoping that with this blog, I can continue to build upon these passions and inspire others reading my blog!

Thanks for reading!
