Welcome to Blissfully Blossoming Beauty, a space I decided to create where I could inspire women through my love for fashion, beauty and all things inspiring. My name is Elise and I live in Baltimore, MD with my husband Dominick and five year old son Deacon. After I chose to quit my job as a preschool teacher to have my son in 2012, I began to feel lost professionally soon after he was born. While I thoroughly enjoyed working with kids, deep down inside I knew that there was a creative side to me that needed to be acknowledged. Honestly, I feel like I missed my true calling as a dancer and although some may say it’s never too late, my right bum knee says otherwise.
So I started to meditate a lot which helped me realize that I should take my personal interests more seriously. This was a big deal for me because I didn’t really feel like I was being true to myself or my purpose. Becoming a mom changed me on so many levels that triggered a desire to be true to myself and break the mold. For the first time in my life I felt like a grown up and I knew that it was time to truly walk my authentic path. One year later, I’m still here and only planning to get better!
With this platform I hope to ignite a spark in all women, but especially moms, that will inspire you to live life like a savage. Make people gasp and wear what you want! Just because you’re a mom does not mean you should lose sight of who you are and neglect yourself. Challenge conventionality, continue to evolve, and do you! Honoring your authentic self is something that most of us struggle with at some point or another but it is essential to your evolution as an individual and frankly your life depends on it. I hope you are influenced by my determination to rock motherhood and look damn well while doing it!
