“I’m going to make everything around me beautiful—that will be my life.” – Elsie De Wolfe
Thanks so much for stopping by this little space, where I share my musings on my forever quest to appreciate the beautiful things in life.
I have this thing with beauty. It’s in my name: Jamila comes from the Arabic word jamāl meaning “beauty” or “beautiful.”
When I think of the word, beauty, what comes to mind is symmetry and style. There is beauty in composition; balance, rhythm, harmony, proportion. Beauty is having the power to attract, to draw interest. Beauty is inspiring and stimulating. It is composed of the moments that open our eyes, and remind us of the thrilling experience of being alive.
I believe that life is often filled with gorgeous, fleeting moments; that we should seek out the magic in the everyday; that we have the freedom to enjoy the sweet side of life.
More about me:
After graduating with a B.S. in Marketing in 2006, I worked in business communications for real estate development firms in Orlando, FL.
I never thought I’d end up working in retail. But, in 2011 I was looking to make some extra holiday cash, and took a part time job at a nearby mall. Shortly after starting, I was asked to lead in merchandising, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
Currently, I’m responsible for visual campaign implementation for my brand’s store locations in Texas and several surrounding states. The store I work out of the most is in central Dallas–a new dual-concept, 10,000 sq. ft. flagship location, that features an expanded home-design studio.
