Dream Big & Buy The Shoes: About Me

About Me

Hey you! Welcome to my blog, I'm so glad you found me and this page. I'm Emelia, the voice behind my blog Dream Big & Buy the Shoes. By day I work as a Social Media Manager & Events Coordinator at a salon and spa in Erie, Pa which is basically a dream. I'm also a wife and stepmom and that reality is far better than any dream I've ever had. 

About Me:

I am a Penn State alum, WE ARE! who studied Communications & Media Studies. While I wasn't sure what I wanted to be when I grow up, I realize that I'm always learning which keeps life interesting. 

I love laughing to the point of tears, traveling, sharing a good beauty tip, attempting new things in the kitchen and with hot glue guns & having fun with life. I drink really big cups of coffee, chase the sky at sunrise and sunset to capture it's beauty, and never met a cupcake I didn't like.

One other thing I love- making moments special...so I opened an Etsy Shop, "The Dreamy Details" and feature fun and inspirational wall art and printables to make you laugh, put a smile on your face and remind you to Dream Big! Come shop with me at The Dreamy Details

I'm so so happy you found yourself here and really appreciate you visiting my blog, always remember that anything is possible...Dream Big!

I truly believe you are never too young or too old to dream. Life doesn't wait for any of us; you must get your fill every single day...that's why it's important to dream big & always buy the shoes.
