Who is Louise? Who is Beryllium?

Monday, November 23, 2015

I've been running this blog for about a year now, and I don't think I've ever properly introduced myself.

My name is Louise and I am currently a 21 year old graphic design student. I live in the capital of New Zealand, Wellington in a flat with my boyfriend of almost two years. I am obsessed with cats, pastel colours and nail varnishes.

I have just finished my third year studying Visual Communication Design, about to head into my fourth and final year of a Bachelor with Honours. I love graphic design, particularly typography and editorial. I have learnt heaps studying design and hope to continue to refine my work and progress to eventually make it in the industry!

I started this blog because I wanted to write more, to give myself a voice. I have been a regular user of Twitter for many years, but I felt very constricted with the 140 character limit. I also wanted to learn more about photography, and what's better than learning by trying?! I am slowly becoming a self-diagnosed beauty obsessor, one of the reasons I started this blog, to learn more and to tell everyone else what I've learnt!


I chose the name BERYLLIUM for my blog as my middle name is Beryl, which was passed down to me by my parents as it is my mother's middle name, which she is named after a lady called Beryl who took her father in when his mother passed away and single fathers weren't heard of back then. I chose "Beryllium" rather than "Beryl" because it's a chemical element, the forth one on the periodic table (4 is my lucky number). Beryllium is a rare element, and is the main chemical in gems such as Beryl. Beryllium also has an exciting natural hexagonal shape.

In summary, the name Beryl is very important to me, and the word Beryllium is just so kick-ass I knew straight away what to call my blog!


With this blog I aim to learn more about the online world and how it runs, learn some more photography things and to voice my opinions and share what I love in whatever way I see fits!
