About Me

My name is Ely (pronounced Ellie), you can call me Elle (all my friends do!) I’m an architect-in-training by day, and a blogger by night.

My love affair with blogging began right after college, when I realized my wardrobe was a disaster. I got my start documenting my adventures in fashion on my previous blog, Ripped Nylon. After writing and growing for five years, it was (painfully) time for a change. Inspired by the daily conversations I have with friends and family, the idea of a fuller lifestyle blog began to blossom.

Navigating adulthood is intense, so I’m focused on helping busy women look and feel their best so they can conquer their career and build a life they love. You can expect me to write about: Career Dynamics, Productivity/Time Management, Professional (budget-friendly) Style, and Self Care. I’ll also share a more intimate view of my own life, and interviews with the women who have inspired me.

Get in touch on any of my favorite networks, I’m always looking for fun people to collaborate with!
