Hi, everyone! Welcome to my little home on the internet.

My name is Maha, I'm 28 and this is what I do with my spare time.

Mixed Brunette is a personal lifestyle blog where I share some of my favourite things which consist of fashion, beauty, travel, photography & more.

I am of two different ethnicities, hence the username.

Since 2005, I've been wanting to start a blog and possibly a YouTube channel but I was about to start university and it hindered my little hobby. With that said, I studied Communications & Media Studies with a dash of Advertising, Marketing, and PR on the side. I'm keener on working with the creative and active side of things i.e. working in events even though it may be tiring, but it's ridiculously fun for me! If I'm not running around at an event, I would be at the desk playing around with Photoshop. I am all about self-learning and I teach myself something new every day.

These are the traits that best describe me:

Fashion

When it comes to fashion, my personal style is usually on the safe side. I don't really mesh well with bright colours unless the outfit design is fabulous, then I'll just brave on with it. Most of my fashion runway posts will be about the designs I love and ones that I would actually wear, ones that everyone could wear on a daily basis rather than avant-garde pieces (which could be worn for certain occasions). Therefore, you will not find complete reports/reviews of the collection on here as it is just to my personal taste. I will, however, provide a link to the full collection from the original source.

Beauty

As most little girls, we've all ransacked our mother's makeup collection. My love for makeup came from my mother as she taught me the many tips & tricks she has learned while being a beautician at the time. I may not have a certificate that labels me as a professional makeup artist, but I have been immersed in the salon industry for 15 years now as my mother owned a salon, so I have learned and picked up everything I know about beauty from this connection. I do manage to apply decent looks with my own techniques, and with "faboo" results too. ;) When I talk about a certain product on this blog, it will be my honest opinion on whether I actually like it or not. Especially when it comes to skin care! I dislike reading false reviews about a product and I would like to avoid that on my blog and give you an honest read. Not everything will work for me of course, so when I do find something that does, I'll rave nonstop. Remember that we are all different. What may work for me, may not work for you and vice versa.

Travel

Traveling is one of my many passions. I love to wander new places, getting lost and being immersed in the atmosphere. Exploring palaces, forests, old villages, museums will never get old. Let's not forgot to mention the different types of food you get to encounter. Oh, my poor wallet! I've become obsessed with Google Maps Engine and have made way too many maps for my own good. There goes my wallet again with all the planning! I also get the opportunity to meet amazing people, of which I have become good friends with. I currently have friends living in 7 countries and it is a mini goal of mine to expand that list as I would love to meet more so that I may visit and tour around even more and learn about many different cultures. My love for travel sparked when I was a child. I used to watch Chinese and Japanese variety shows and saw the beautiful views of their countries. This has also opened up another passion for me and that passion is learning new languages. I was around 7 years old when I started watching those variety shows and felt the need to learn Mandarin and Japanese. I was so desperate to be able to read languages that are not in the form of the Latin alphabet. I currently speak 3 languages fluently and I have 4 other languages on the side where I can read, write and understand but still not confident enough to hold a conversation with...yet. This is ongoing!

Photography

I love taking pictures of everything around me. 10 years ago, I taught myself how to use a camera in its manual settings and I never looked back. You will always find me to be the one taking pictures of everybody at a large party or even at just a small gathering of friends. I also love taking pictures at big events like concerts and conventions of which I plan to start building a portfolio on at some point in the future.

& much more!

A collector of books, keychains, magnets, figurines, plushies and Starbucks mugs/tumblers and collector's editions of games (if my wallet doesn't protest back). I hope to have a mini library in my own home someday.

I love to travel. I love music. I love photography. I love food. I love social media. I love my PS4.


If you actually read all of that...yay! Now you know me a little bit more. Say hello anytime! :)

Somehow, she manages to unglue herself but then will transfer to her PS4. When she isn’t doing either of those things, you will find her out in the wild foraging in Sephora & clothing shops looking for spoils to bring home. Believe it not, she does many other things as well. :p A lover of all things fashion, beauty, travel, food, video games, music, photography & collecting Funko Pop! figurines.] (youtube=https://www.youtube.com/themixedbrunette) (instagram=http://instagram.com/mixedbrunette) (twitter=https://twitter.com/mixed_brunette) (facebook=https://www.facebook.com/mixedbrunette) (tumblr=http://mixedbrunette.tumblr.com/) (bloglovin=https://www.bloglovin.com/blogs/-mixed-brunette-16600569)
