Hi beauties! My name is Ilse (ill-say) and I’m the writer behind LIVELEARNLUXEIT! I was born in Mexico, raised in Arizona and now reside in good ol’ Connecticut with my hubby of five years. We met in college (a very original sorority-girl-meets-fraternity-guy love story) and after graduating and doing the long-distance thing for about a year, we got engaged and got married in Arizona – a trade-off for moving across the country 😉
I graduated with a degree in journalism and began my blogging journey after moving to Connecticut and craving a creative outlet. This space started as a beauty blog, but a little over two years in, it’s evolved into more than that – it’s now a place where I share all aspects of my life in hopes of inspiring one another to become the best version of ourselves. You’ll find my main focus to be empowering women to not only dream, but work toward their goals! I also love to spark creativity in life, beauty and style.
