What is Moderneste? 


Moderneste, a portmanteau of the words “modest” and “modern” is all about de-cluttering your life and elevating your mindset. It is a minimalistic approach to life that focuses on minimizing the surplus - not just for the sake of doing less, but for the purpose of liberating the mind, body, and soul. Looking within, simplifying, and never settling is the key to constant improvement – both personally and professionally. 


My blog is a community collective. Not only do I share my knowledge, expertise, and experiences, I also bring in others from all walks of life to share their life stories. We learn from each other and grow together. Whether it’s simplifying your fashion or food choices, growing yourself or your business, or learning new life and tech hacks, you can find it here!

De-clutter your life and grow your mindset.

Join me on my journey towards a Moderneste life!
