The Face Behind ‘The Sunday Mode’

If you’ve read any of my style posts or if you follow @thesundaymode on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that my face isn’t shown in any of the photos. Now don’t get too excited, I’m not a headless horseman or anything like that, I promise there’s a melon sitting on top of this neck.

When I started this blog I wanted to remain completely anonymous and you can probably guess some of the reasons why (See: The internet can be a creepy place, stranger danger etc). As I’ve been interacting with the blogging community over the past few months, I’ve felt something has been holding me back from making connections and interacting with people; my anonymity.

Since I’ve been reading all of your wonderful blogs, I’ve been inspired to take the plunge and join you all, starting with revealing the actual person behind this blog. The content of The Sunday Mode isn’t changing, except for the fact that you might see my face now and again. I just wanted you all to get to know me a little better and be able to put a face to my blog.

I feel like this post is turning out to be a lot more dramatic than I intended? Long story short, in an effort to propel this blog and further connect with the blogosphere…..

Ta da! Wow that’s a big picture of my face…hopefully my mug hasn’t scared any of you off.
For the sake of consistency and on social media I’ll still be going by ‘The Sunday Mode,’ but my real name is Julia.

I’ve been reading different blogs and watching Youtubers for about 6 years now. For a long time I wanted to start my own blog, but my annoying perfectionist personality stopped me. After recently graduating I decided to take the plunge and so far it’s been nothing but enjoyable (aside from spending hours trying to figure out HTML, argh!).

Aside from interacting with some amazing bloggers, one of the most exciting things about blogging so far is that it’s opened up a new window for me; I’ve become a content creator for The Haute Mess. THM website is all about embracing your inner hot mess and the fact that no one is perfect, we’re all just trying to figure things out (something I strongly believe- trust me, I am a serious hot mess). Currently I’m writing original content for the site, though some of my existing posts from The Sunday Mode will also be featured there. If you’re interested in reading more of my content and want to see me in action on the site, click here.

I’ll of course be blogging through The Sunday Mode as per usual, nothing there will change. This is just a chance for me to get my blog out there a bit more and become a part of an extended online community. Basically, this is really exciting for me so I wanted to share it with you all!

Hopefully after reading this you feel like you now know the face behind this blog a little better. I’ve also just started up a twitter (gulp!) so if you fancy following me there, my twitter is: @TheSundayMode.
