le belle la vie

Hey there!

Welcome to my little corner of the internet!

I suppose you probably want to know a little bit about me?

Hmm, where to start…

I’m Izzy, a 25-year-old originally from Somerset but currently residing in Hampshire with my fiancée, Greg and our two pet guinea pigs, Arwen & Arna.

Formally known as Just Belle, Le Belle La Vie was started back in early 2015 as a way to keep up my journalism skills that I had learnt in my degree and as a place to express my love of writing, fashion, and beauty. Of course, I didn’t really have a clue at what I was doing other than typing some words down for the first year of it! These days you will find a range of lifestyle, food, fashion, beauty and travel posts along with anything else in between.

I recently decided to rebrand my blog as I wasn’t really feeling Just Belle anymore and it was merely something I thought of that was unique to me and a “non-hipster” long titled blog name as my previous college and university blogs had had. As my full name is the French spelling of Isabelle, I chose Le Belle La Vie to fully embrace my name and the French origin of it as it is a beautiful language!

I currently work full time as a Business Support Advisor and volunteer as a Fundraising & Marketing Officer for a local charity. I’m also currently studying a part-time masters in advertising and marketing so that I can eventually fulfill my dream of working in digital marketing and content creating.

In my spare time (LOL, what is that!?), I’m usually found with my head in a book, dancing around to my current favourite song, editing and taking photos, blogging, baking, researching the next big thing in digital marketing (Also probably wasting time gawping over Instagram, Twitter or Pinterest!), obsessing over someone else’s pet or my latest fashion and beauty find, or even having a good old chinwag with friends and family.

I’m more than always up for an adventure and if you love a cuppa tea, we are going to get on just fine!

Oh, and I also make a damn good apple crumble – not to blow my own trumpet at all!
