I started blogging with the aim to spread positivity and share some encouragement. With the purpose of promoting positive self esteem and a healthy outlook on life, I started my blog ‘Beautiful in Essence’. The name based on my belief that our beauty derives from the very essence of who we are, and this is what makes us beautiful.

As my passion for blogging grew, it was inevitable and apparent that my many areas of interest found their way onto my blog. This merge of content birthed what is now Marianne Sophia, discussing and sharing my interests, whilst remaining steadfast to my core message.
