Behind the blog

thebeautynovel started out in 2014 just as an outlet for when I was feeling down, to try and create my own little space of positivity and passion; a place where I could talk about anything I wanted and made me happy.

Hi, I'm Julia Noëlle, a 26-year-old beauty and fashion lover from Austria, Europe. What began with an interest in makeup bloggers is now a full-on obsession with all things beauty and fashion-related.

I graduated high school at the age of 18, where I decided I want to study law at our local university with focus on criminal law and become a lawyer. Well, this plan didn't work out as imagined.
I took a year off at around 20, thinking I'd rather have a full-time job still surrounding law but just not studying it. I did, I worked full time at a notary office for a few months when I developed depression and anxiety. I got professional help and eventually decided I want to go back to studying law.

Of course, things did not go as planned this time around either. I ended up going back to my old university to continue with my law studies. A few months in, struggling to keep up with my courses once again, I finally decided to leave university for good.

At 24 I worked for a big fashion company for 2 years which I left because I wanted to actually get a degree in something. But life ain't always easy so I took a semester in psychology which I didn't end up liking either. On my journey, I also got married and opened up two cafes with my husband but my passion for writing, social media and graphic design never stopped so I ended up starting to study media technology and graphic design

I want to take you on this journey with me and hope to inspire some of you while I find my true passion and purpose in life.
