Hi! My name is Melissa (aka; Meli), and I live in Miami, FL with my husband, baby girl and two very rowdy Boston Terriers. By day, I’m a behavior analyst. By night, I am a pop culture princess that adores blogging about all things fashion, beauty and fun – with a geeky twist, of course! I’m an avid convention goer and am not afraid to travel for the opportunity to geek out with my favorite celebrities, artists or fellow bloggers. In 2015, I won The Geekie Award for Best Website/Blog and became a mother to an amazing little girl, Luna Ivy. That same year, I founded the Miami chapter of Geek Girl Brunch and was an officer for over 2 years.

In addition to the blog, I also co-host The Fangirl Diaries, a YouTube channel about pop culture geekiness, and am the geek chic mommy and kids correspondent at Fashionably Nerdy. In 2016, I took the plunge and started my own geek lifestyle brand, Geek Girl Gang, that offers pins and tees for the modern geeky girl.

I love collaborating with small and large businesses alike, as long as I believe they are a good fit for my blog in terms of content and topic. If you are interested in cross-promoting, feel free to contact me at melificentblog@gmail.com.
