My name is Emily. I’m a 30-something newlywed living on Florida’s east coast. This Blog is my personal exploration of a purposeful life, confidence and beauty, entrepreneurship, and cultivating loving relationships. I believe that no day is complete without coffee, pets should always to referred to as momma’s “pretty girl” or “handsome boy”, and a good attitude is enough to turn it all around.
Explain the Name
“Emily Gets Elegant” is a play on words. I have been a tomboy most of my life, and only recently in the past couple of years have I gained an interest in makeup, beauty, fashion, hair, etc.
- Emily gets Elegant, in one sense, means that I am getting to be elegant. I was once a tomboy, and now I’m becoming a beautiful, mature woman.
- I also get elegant in that I understand elegance. That is, beauty tips, etiquette, professionalism, and the like.
My Current Season of Life
I am a newlywed to an amazing, wonderful, caring husband who makes me believe in the existence of soul mates on a daily basis.
I am a new homeowner. My husband and I just bought our first house together in August of 2015. We chose a beautiful place along the east coast of Florida.
Other things about me, in no particular order:
- My blood type is COFFEE
- Nail Polish
- Drawing (and just generally being creative)
- Web Design
