about me

Referring to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs pyramid; the most fascinating thing to me in life is self-actualization. Self-actualization is the process of fulfilling your own potential and becoming all that you can be.

My name is Tess-Alexandra Jansen. I am 28 years old and I want to make the most of my life. Like any other person I struggle with myself. I face a thousand insecurities and challenges each day, but what defines me is that I face it willingly, consciously and happily.
My blog shows you who I am, what I like and what I stand for. A visual and textual journey of my exploration and personal growth. The main focus of my blog is fashion. In my view fashion follows on the principle of self-actualization, namely:

”Fashion is a possible way to show the embodiment of your highest potential.”

You define yourself. You are the instigator of your own development. Appearance is not all-encompassing, but it is an important part of becoming all that you can be. You are the creator of your appearance. This is not intended to be supervisual, rather it is a concrete approach to reaching your potential. I experience fashion as the most fun and fulfilling way of designing the best exterior version of myself. I do not follow trends; I always stay true to who I am and what I stand for. My personal style is classic and elegant. It reflects my mood, my thoughts and considerations. Some days I lean towards a more rock chic look; which is somewhat more edgy. Other days I feel I live up to my potential best by carrying out an authentic feminine look. Most importantly, whatever I wear, I feel confident wearing it.

It is my goal to inspire you so you will live up to your own highest potential. This blog is meant to encourage you to design yourself whilst having fun doing it. Do not let anyone else define who you are and be the best version of you!

Lots of love,
