MELINDA + LOVES
My name is Melinda Lewis; pen name Melinda Loves and I write shortish e-books because sharing is caring. I’m like every other favorite media personality you lurk and semi obsesses over and wish you had that idea first kind of girl but I’m also an open book of personal insecurities, aha moments and living a life of genuine happiness. I’m a Pinterest nut and coffee nut and I love exploring what’s beneath.
I under eye concealer and yes I have an opinion but my urge to leave things better unsaid is stronger. My childhood: traumatic. But it made me the person I am today: filled with personal insight and a deep gratitude for evolving. I believe in gravity, substance, and having the heart to try over and over again until you get it right.
I’ve been blogging for a while and for a minute it was all about appearances but then I got tired of sharing an idealized version of myself cause it feels super phony. Now I aim to be me at all costs.
as a media personality.
After graduating from NYU with a BS degree in Communication Studies I was a graduate feeling completely lost. Then I copped a Master’s Degree in Teaching and became even more lost. So I then decided to carve out a life online because the idea of keeping my gifts to myself seemed so wrong. I started as Get + Togetha but I’m now rebranded as Melinda Loves: a voice on personal growth, style, and embracing life’s pitfalls. And contrary to what living life online is perceived I feel uncertainty, can be an indecisive insomniac, and my mind can sometimes spin like a hamster wheel; but hey… its all good.
My favorite number is two. I’m cliched about loving my city and I can be totally camera shy. I’ve been fired for speaking what I think and I’m biased to all things Beyoncé because she works her Virgo but off—like me. I’ve written for the Huffington Post, Ebony Mag and countless defunct lifestyle brands. I’m currently working on my brand baby Handler’s PR and I’m a night owl.
The Short: See above.(ha!)
