Hi there! I’m glad you’re interested in finding out a little bit more about me. I am hands down my favorite subject.
My name is Lix and I’m a graphic designer and photographer trying to make this self-employment thing work for me — you know, financially speaking. I blog about my work and what I learn, and I love to help bloggers and small business owners craft the perfect visuals and spaces for their brands.
I started blogging in 2013 in a misguided attempt to market my now-defunct photography print shop, and over time lixhewett.com has evolved into a platform where I write about what I wear, where I go, and what I do, and share advice on various aspects of running a blog and creative business.
My entire online presence can be summed up in: I like to take pictures of pretty shit. I’m not and don’t claim to be knowledgeable about fashion or trends, let alone travel, but I love to look good and prance around in front of and behind a camera, see and photograph new places, and dream about owning and decorating my own home.
In that same escapist vein, I consume a lot of fiction. It makes me happy, and sometimes I talk about it. It’s not the main focus of this blog, but I would never want to have an online platform without room for fangirling. That would just be wrong.
A little bit about me: I’m 27 and I live in a small city in Spain with my parents, sister and cat, Oxford. I spent a year in London up until April 2015, which was quite the experience. There are downsides to moving back in with your family, but I couldn’t afford to build my business properly any other way.
I’m open to a fault about my life, including my mental health and intersectional feminist views. One of my goals with this blog and my podcast is to spread awareness and empower people to embrace themselves, warts and all, and find the strength to fight their battles — even if that looks like staying far away from them sometimes.
I’m an able-bodied neuroatypical pansexual cis white woman from a low-income background with far-left political views and no religious affiliation, and I want you to know that because it affects the way I write, create and live. I am human, after all, and my brain-to-mouth filter has never worked right.
I hope you like what you find here, and enjoy me as well. If you do, look to your right (or below the content on mobile) to find me on social media, or head here to subscribe to my newsletter. See you around!
