I'm Lys. Now 24, I am a soon-to-be linguistics and communication graduate who aspires to pursue a career in media or PR. Aside from my studies, you'll find me out exploring and photographing pretty much everything that catches my eye (I update on Instagram regularly), hanging out with friends or binge watching my favourite TV shows. I also love to travel and hope to discover as much of the world as possible. In 2014, I took a big leap and moved to Finland to study there for four months. It turned out to be such a great learning experience, I can definitely see myself living abroad in a few years' time. Who knows where I'll end up? For now, I am based in Ghent, a wonderful city in Belgium.


I started Modest Mix in March 2013 when I was looking for a way to practise my English creative writing skills outside of university. My own blog seemed like a great place to do so. In my three years of blogging, I have learned a lot about photography and story-telling, while still maintaining beauty as the main focus. Today, Modest Mix is a platform where I share my latest interests and travel experiences on one hand, and it acts as a great way to connect with other bloggers and readers from all over the world on the other hand.

I hope you'll enjoy your time here at Modest Mix and would like to invite you to engage in discussion, whether it is about beauty, travel, or any other topic. Find me on Twitter too as @lysclr and I hope we'll talk soon!
