• About Me
    Hello there! Welcome to the Everyday Elevated, a life and style blog I created in the beginning of 2015. My name is Lisa and I am based out of Sacramento, California. I have been an avid reader of fashion/lifestyle/beauty blogs for years now, and I decided to take the plunge in January 2015 and start my own blog. My main goal in creating this blog was to motivate myself to dress up, make up, create, and add a touch of something extra to my everyday life. I noticed that when I put in some effort in my outside appearance, I felt a noticeable difference in how I interacted with those around me. I was livelier, chattier, friendlier, happier, and all in all, a better version of myself. Amazing how that happens! I suppose it’s really true – if you look good, you feel good!

    Not only do I want to motivate myself, I want to motivate and inspire others to elevate their everyday as well! Whether it’s by remixing a new article of clothing into your wardrobe, waking up 15 minutes earlier to play with makeup (I’ve never been a morning person so this is a daily challenge!), incorporating accessories into your ensemble, tweaking your living space, trying a new recipe, or having the confidence to smile at that cute stranger, it is all about enjoying and appreciating the little things that make up your everyday.

    My goal with this little blog of mine is to keep it as relate-able and authentic as possible (i.e not so editorial, magazine-y, if that makes sense!), so most all photos are untouched/unedited (and yes, this could be because I’m impatient with photo editing programs!) Also, most photos and outfits featured here are outfits I’ve actually worn in my day-to-day life, not just worn to be photographed on a blog. This makes the most sense for me, my lifestyle, and my goals in creating and maintaining this blog. See above! 🙂

    By day, I am a development professional in the nonprofit world. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my dog, Zoey, being active (playing tennis, yoga, trying out various workout classes, kayaking, hiking, swimming, camping, dancing to 90’s/2000’s jams – oh nostalgia), going to sporting events (love the Sacramento Kings!), cooking and trying new recipes, personal development, networking, and spending time with genuine and fun people.

    I LOVE to interact with others, so if you have a question, or just want to chat, I would love to hear from you! Together, let’s motivate and inspire each other to be the best versions of ourselves and elevate our everyday just a little bit more! 🙂
