About Virtues and Figs

"Virtue? A Fig! 'Tis in ourselves that we are thus or thus. Our bodies are our gardens, to the which our wills are gardeners." Othello Shakespeare 1.3.361-68

Welcome to Virtues + Figs!

Virtues + Figs is a blog about how to live life better by discussing the things that make our lives worth living. Here, we explore how we can cultivate beauty in our everyday by embracing our messiness while still striving to become the best versions of ourselves. At the same time, while our lives can be serious business, we should not take OURSELVES too seriously. That's why this blog will tackle subjects like "What it means to live your virtues" and also "My First Ipsy Bag - Review." Because having fun is essential to living a happier more fulfilled life.

At the end of the day, we all learn from one another. Virtues + Figs is my little space on the web where I share what I'm learning, working on, and thinking about with the hope that it will also serve as a platform to encourage and inspire my readers. Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you!

About Elle

Loyal, intelligent and equal parts cynical and optimistic, Elle enjoys both quick witted banter and long philosophical discussions about the meaning of life. She often over analyzes and takes life way too seriously, but also has a silly creative side that when let loose will knock your socks off.
