Hi! This is Jess, I’m twenty going thirty and you can usually find me with an e-book in my hand, I read way too fast and have way too long reading/ writing slumps to be content with myself. I think a life without mascara is a life not well spent, I am obsessed with bags and backpacks, hole in the wall second hand bookshops, sales and cheap deals and most of all Slow burn. I am a Libra and as such I’m a sucker for anything aesthetic pleasing. My favourite colour is peach but I’m sure none of you would’ve ever guessed! I’m nice, but headstrong and I’m sassy as hell! I’m an Italian big lady that unapologetically loves herself! I struggle with my mental health and I try my best to be vocal about it in order to end the general stigma about anxiety, OCD, depression and so on.
I started Those Classic Hues in 2018 as books and curves after countless trial to start a blog because I loved writing, I just didn’t know what my voice was! Once I found it… well, self confidence is still a work in progress, but I’m getting good at it! So why change from “ Books and Curves” to “ Those Classic Hues”? I needed a name that wouldn’t tie me down, that wouldn’t be so limitative and descriptive, it’s important for me that I feel free to touch any aspect of my life that it’s relevant for me, be it random rants, fashion, make up, skincare, books, mental health or general playlists! This blog is a part of me and I hope you’ll have fun and share this little corner of the internet with me. So, sit down and have a cup of tea, biscuits are on their way 😉
