MELIFICENT who is this girl?

Hi! my name is Melissa, also known as Meli. And now? Melificent. I live in Miami, FL with my gorgeous & immensely talented hubby and our two rowdy Boston Terriers.

During the day, I work with autistic children. By night, I dream of pink cupcakes (gluten free please), glitter, confetti & most of all, blogging.

IN A NUTSHELL but not as hard to crack

Music is my hot, hot sex. I dig fast cars. I am more informed as to what is happening in Gwen Stefani’s life than in Obama’s administration. I thoroughly enjoy DIY projects and crafting in general. In my next life, I hope to be a party planner. Retail therapy is what gets me through the rough patches. I love fashion & playing with textures & colors. The arts fascinate me. I watch a little too much TV, but my DVR doesn’t seem to mind.

WHY BLOG? i say why not!

I have been blogging in some form or another since I was a teenager (I’m looking at you, Livejournal). I love connecting with others digitally across the world, at a deeper level. I guess it must satisfy my inner hippie.

This blog was created to share the things I love with all of you, in hopes that it can be a bright patch of sunshine in a corner of the Interwebs. My wish is that this blog can bring happiness, inspiration and optimism.

After all, when you sit back & think about it, life is pretty Melificent, isn’t it?
