Welcome to the newest segment of my blog!

When Lydia Smiles is all about the things that make me happy, the things that I love—the things that make me Lydia— which I want to share with you! I’ve been getting the hang of blogging over the last few months and while I love writing about my spiritual journey, positivity and the Law of Attraction, those aren’t the only things that make me smile. Art forms a big part of who I am as a creative. I’m pedantic about my Instagram layout (which is pretty much themed and features a few collages which I spent a good portion of my day putting together for uploading), I love a good aesthetic on pretty much anything, I’m a sucker for detail and a good story and I love me some artwork (especially Renaissance artworks) and that what this is about.
