LucyMint was created as a place for me to write about my personal style, small business, and love for the little moments in life that God gives us. By no means am I an expert in any of these areas, but I know what inspires me and I love sharing it with others. I'm just another imperfect person driven by hope, faith, grace, and the desire to live a truly beautiful life.

Overall, my beautiful family and friends define the person I've become. I'm just a girl striving to live for what I believe in and I am so thankful that God has given me the opportunity to do so.

A few more facts about me ...

{LACMA Light Installation // In 2008 I moved from the Bay Area to Los Angeles county to attend college and have been loving Southern California ever since.}
{My Family // I'm the youngest of three. I got my dimples from my dad's side and my love of crafting from my mom's. My family is everything and I love each and every one of them with all my heart.}
{A favorite memory // A meet and greet with my favorite animal during an incredible study abroad semester in South Africa.}
{Learning to LOVE // Ronnie and I met just before traveling to South Africa together, it is a place that left an incredible imprint on our hearts. Currently we're living life in support of one another's dreams--all the while learning how to love, care, and live to the glory of God everyday.}


  1. I enjoyed reading about you Elissa. I'm looking forward to perusing through the rest of your blog!

  2. Hi Elissa, even though I have only known you virtually for a few months, but I feel like you're a true example of inner and outer beauty - such as sweetheart in every way. I wish you and your blog all the success in the world - you have already succeeded in being an awesome person in life!!! xoxo

    1. Sharon, you're such a shining light in my life. Thank you!! Your words mean so much. I can say the same to you, you're an absolutely incredible person/mommy/posher/fashionista. SO glad we can get to know each other!

  3. Love the blog/Site -@warlenerene ;)

  4. Hi! I just discovered your blog...being a copyeditor sounds like my dream job. Can you tell me more about it, or have you done a blog post on it? :) Thanks! I'm looking forward to reading your blog!

    1. Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I studied communication and journalism in college and graduated in 2012. A copyeditor is essentially the lowest man on the totem pole in the publishing and editorial world. Thus, it's an entry level job, but I'm thankful to have it! I edit books and blog articles all day, which is tedious, detail oriented work, but for someone who loves written word, its pretty fun! If you have any other specific questions, feel free to let me know :)


I'm a lover of sweet notes, thank you for leaving yours! I respond to each one personally via email.
