Recently I have been going out more and exploring life rather than being cooped up at home all the time feeling sorry for myself. Blogging gets me away from my full time job in engineering and doing an engineering degree to remind me there is more outside four walls. I called this blog The Real Ness on two reasons:

  1. My name is Vanessa
  2. I never liked leading a fake life. I’m more the what you see is what you get.

My hair isn’t perfect, no matter how fancy I can make my makeup look I still come out plain on cameras. If I do look good it’s because I probably caught good lighting at the right moment and I’m pretty fresh made before over the day my hair flattens and my makeup fades. Everything I write here is what I do, what I come across. I’m not set on focusing on makeup or hair or going places, I do everything because life is too short to not explore.


Oh this is me but freshly done on a good day. ^^
