About Me

About Me

I am a 30 something, single mother to one very energetic little boy. I live in Johannesburg, South Africa. By day I am a Database Administrator and in my spare time I love spending time with my son, reading, listening to music and doing anything creative.

I have a diploma in Interior Design and am a Professional Makeup Artist. I have always had a passion for being creative. I first studied to be a makeup artist and have done many wedding parties and matric farewells. When I felt trapped by makeup, I studied towards my other passion, interior design.

I love reading book, anything from YA fantasy and romance, to your classic British novels, like Thomas Hardy. I have quiet a selection of books and want to encourage my son that reading is fun from a very young age. I love listening to music too and during the day I constantly have my earphones in.

I also love designing blog headers and custom invitations. You can view my work here.

I am very much an INFJ. And although I come across as shy, I am just very selective of the people I let into my life. I care a lot about the people who care about me and am always told I wear my heart on my sleeve.

About the blog

I started Elysian Life as a way to keep the sanity in my life. There is so many troubling things on the internet and I wanted a place where I could find peace and tranquility. 

Elysian means beautiful and creative; divinely inspired; peaceful and perfect.

And while this blog will be far from perfect, it will definitely be peaceful and inspired. I will showcase all my favorite things, interiors that I love and how to achieve them, lifestyle pieces and pieces that will make you think. 

I hope you will enjoy my little space on the internet. If you would like to get in contact, my details are here.
