My name is Carla E Manuel and I am Angolan. I grew up in Lisbon, Portugal were I graduated in Translation. I've had some of my best moments in Lisbon but decided to return home to Luanda, when the economic crisis started affecting me. While living in Luanda I learned a lot both professionally and personally but after three years I decided it was time to move yet again. Several reasons made me want to move but the main one was that I wanted to fall in love with my life again, I always knew that there was more to life than obligations, bad relationships and problems. So now I am living in Paris, and living here is helping me express the best version of myself, I am starting to see life with new eyes and I am loving what I am seeing. I know that it's not only the location that is promoting this shift in me but also the conscious decision I made to live a better life. This is why I decided to start a blog! I created Elize Bonnheur( my middle name plus the word happiness in French) so that I can share everything that makes my soul tingle.
