About

Is it me or is everyone these days a lifestyle blogger?  So, I thought -- heck, I write and teach writing and multimedia journalism for a living,  so why not jump into the water -- with both feet in.  

I'm a Manila-born, San Francisco-raised, Los Angeles and Chicago-educated, New York transplant who is now settled (at least for now) on the Jersey Shore. And my name is Ernabel.
ERNABEL -- BEL -- BELLE  -- A BELLE ...
A BELLE LIFE

And it has been a beautiful life -- a belle life.   So make sure your devices are fully charged and your seat belts are properly fastened, because I'm hoping this second half of my life will be just as fun and bumpy as the first. 

(And here's me in the 3rd person because lifestyle bloggers seem to like to write about themselves in the 3rd:  Demillo is a veteran, Emmy-nominated, television broadcaster (CUNY-TV, FOX-5,  MSNBC, COURT TV,  KOVR-CBS13)  She is also a tenured professor and started the journalism program at a New Jersey College.  And rumor has it, she is also a mom to a teenager and a lifestyle blogger.)
