About Me

Hi! Welcome to Brown Eyed Ella. I’m Elisa, or as some know me, Ella.

I am a New York native turned world traveler after I followed my heart (and boyfriend) over 5,000 miles south to Santiago, Chile. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but it was the best decision I have ever made.

I have always had a passion for writing but never transferred that energy into blogging until my boyfriend encouraged me to. Once I found the confidence, finding the inspiration was easy!

I started B.E.E because I wanted to create a one-stop shop to empower others to travel (and travel BIG), embrace their style, and live life to the fullest. I am new at this whole thing, but am so pumped to take this journey with you. Thanks in advance for taking it with me!

Thank you so much for stopping by, it means the world to me. Feel free to shoot me an email with questions or just to say hi: elisa@browneyedella.com  I would love to talk to you!

Cheers! Xo
