Last March my digital baby brain child, Love Aesthetics turned 5 years old. Never could have imagined that it would be one of the longest projects I have worked on in my life. It has taught me so much about so much; from the obvious photography, journalism, social media, styling, how the fashion industry and PR works to strengthening my own personal point of views. As I grew so did Love Aesthetics, it has become a strange kind of reflection of my identity in the form of a series of time-snapshots.

The layout had been the same one as since 2008. But for the past months it has only annoyed me, it lacked so much functionality. It was really (reeaallly) time to do something about it! I placed a message on facebook, met a lovely reader who also happened to be a talented web designer, and less than two weeks later the improved version is up and running. Thank you Fleur! It feels like it has never been any different. And in essence it never really has. For the visuals; the font of Love Aesthetics has been the same for 4 years, and I stuck with a printer, scissors and some tape for the logo-making.

Love Aesthetics is still about my love for aesthetics, the visual aspects of life and obsession to find out what lies beneath the appearance of things. Here’s a big, fat thank you to everyone for staying tuned, everyone who took a minute out of their day to leave a message. This won’t be the last time you’ll hear this: it has meant the world to me that my posts have served you in some kind of way and it has been the best motivation to keep new ideas and updates coming! T H A N K Y O U!

    Love the new design (yay for bigger pictures!) though I’m really gonna miss the old layout: it was the first I had ever seen which was stylish yet unpretentious, functional and at the same time oh so beautiful in its simplicity. Your style and personality has been – and still is – of great inspiration to me!
    Keep up the good work Ivania, here’s to another 5+ years of Love Aesthetics! xo Ines

    this is eutha nasia from Facebook

    thank you
    you have been a defining inspiration to me
    you have brought minimalism to a whole new level, absolute minimalism
    in aesthetics, living, design
    minimalist can be more things, for example just more simplicity in apparel
    but that is not your almost pure white minimalism with metals or few objects that stand out

    waving to you

    with all the warmth
