About Modus Vivendi

Modus Vivendi

Modus Vi…What? Mo-Dus Vi-Ven-Di. Modus Vivendi is a phrase in Latin, meaning “a Way of Life”

Incorporating my Legal side, Minimalistic Style, Parisian Beauty, and a Modern to Zen Lifestyle, into a platform that portrays a Vogue and Sophisticated sense and design.

Inspired by Luxuriant and Chic elements, balanced with a minimalistic approach – Modus Vivendi was Born.

About the Creator

I am Liza Leimlehner, the Creator and Editor of Modus Vivendi. a Complex Law student from Johannesburg, passionate about effortless beauty with a need for freedom of expression that pushed me beyond my comfort zones into the world of fashion and lifestyle writing.

Finally conquering the Winged-Eyeliner, I know spend my spare time feasting on cheesecake and sipping on a glass of Merlot. I wish – instead I’m doing this thing called life, falling and failing but always getting up with a life lesson to share, trying to avoid spanks, and hopefully pass Cum Laude one day and celebrating with a well deserved Chanel Bag and a Trip to Istanbul.
