I believe we are all like multifaceted diamonds just waiting for our chance to sparkle!

This blog is an opportunity for me to express myself creatively, it is a journal of my experiences, and a place to connect with people.  

My vision is to help others, through friendship, coaching, consulting, and teaching while applying my gifts and talents in an effort to make a difference in our world.

I am learning new lessons all the time and experiencing new challenges along my journey of life.  

I wish to share my insights and light the way for others. . .  in a fun and real way!  I do this by being open and accepting of all people and things that I encounter.  

I am always searching for new adventures.

I work full-time as an administrative assistant at a private middle school in sunny Southern California.  I am a mom of three amazing young men.  I am married to my best friend of over thirty years.  In my spare time, I work on art projects with my best friend, Cindy.  I am a certified professional life coach. I love music and movies and driving to the beach.

Miz Meliz is all about me, it is truly a reflection of me.  I write for myself.  Writing is my passion.  I hope to inspire and to be inspired. My blog, MizMeliz.com, started in 2007 and became a book in 2013. I continued blogging and doing reviews and videos until 2018. Now, I am going back to basics and continuing with my original journal blog – which is all of my writing, journal, poetry, prayers, prompts from projects that I am participating in, everything!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for visiting here.  This is a place of good intent.



Born and raised in idyllic suburbs of Los Angeles, Melissa “Miz Meliz” Reyes made a name for herself in the lifestyle blogging world telling stories of the people who make the City of Angels unique and stirring. As a writer, blogger, artist, and live streaming host, Miz Meliz shares what she loves about life and the things her guests from around the world love that makes their lives worth living.

She hosts or co-hosts three shows. On Inspiring Adventures, Melissa interviews people who have uplifting experiences and touching narratives. As creator and host of Last Night’s Show with Miz Meliz, she shares her Los Angeles exploits, with a touch of humor and often a bit of sass. And on Paint With Heart, she brings a beginner’s point of view – and some more of that sass to Cindy Harrison’s (sometimes challenging) on-line art class.

Her first book, This is the Sound of My Soul, compiled from her blog posts and reflections illustrates her journey of grieving her parents and sister, while maintaining her roles of a working mother and wife.

She has been voted one of the Top 50 Personal Development Blogs for 2012, one of the Top 100 Personal Development Blogs for 2013, and selected Minds 101 Most Inspiring Blogs of 2016.

And when she’s not doing all the things noted above, you can probably find her driving along Pacific Coast Highway in her Jeep, with the top down, soaking up the sunshine and breathing in the sea air.

I want to hear from you!
