Hi friends! Let me start off by introducing myself: my name is Melissa, but you can call me Melis. I met the lovely Brooke Taylor in the summer of 2014, when I was doing an internship in Los Angeles. A LOT has happened since then, but what’s most important is BT and I have remained best friends since. Photo proof 🏼🏼🏼
I currently live in sunny Los Angeles, California and I’m originally from New Jersey! I’m obsessed with music, my rescue pup Koda, and DISNEY. Living in LA means living super close to Disneyland in Anaheim. (Well… it may be close in miles, but with the traffic here, it can sometimes take up to two hours to get there!)
In fact, I’m a proud Disneyland Annual Passholder! I have some pretty persuasive friends here in LA who talked me into getting one, and I don’t regret it at all. When you’re going to Disneyland so often, you want to be stylish (at least I do!) I’m always trying to get the PERFECT photo for my ‘gram — come on, you know you’d do the same!
One day, I decided to make my own Minnie Mouse ears. I was inspired by other handmade ones that I saw people sporting around the park, and next thing I knew, I opened my own Etsy shop. My shop is called “Magic by Melis” and I create wire mouse ears lined with huge Minnie-inspired bows or an array of fun florals.
My ears are affordable, comfy and oh-so-stylish. Seriously, every time I wear my own designs to the park, I get stopped ALL the time! Peep my shop and treat yourself: http://etsy.com/shop/magicbymelis. Don’t forget to follow my shop on Insta @magicbymelis!
Now Brooke, get your butt to LA so I can put you in some Magic by Melis ears and we can skip around Disneyland together!
