Hi, I'm Clerissa...

So nice to meet you, and welcome to The Fancy!​

My name is Clerissa a.k.a The Fancy Miss, and this site has been a long standing dream of mine. As a business owner and new mom, I've always wanted a space of my own where I can inspire others with words and showcase beautiful products and finds. I'm a creative at heart and just love stumbling across new and unique finds and places and love to share my discoveries with like-minded individuals. Whether you are a mom, a city girl, plain Jane or aspiring corporate - I believe all us ladies have something in common, and that is our special spirits of passion.

I hope to meet new friends and inspirational women through this site and build a community of supporting women who gather and show love and cheer each other on in life.

So that is my hope and vision for The Fancy, now a bit more about me...

I'm a 30 year old wife and new mom to my precious angel boy Daniel, living in Johannesburg, but born and bred in Pretoria. I started my own business a few years ago called The Social Agency, it's a Digital Boutique Agency specialising in Social Media Management and I just love what it has taught me and the joy it has brought me in feeling empowered and meeting amazing fellow female entrepreneurs and growing with them.


I love pretty things, hence the name the fancy miss! And I love posting about my life adventures and capturing beauty in memories.I decided to start blogging again with the birth of my son and the journey we went through. I found that words really helped me get through some tough moments and perhaps through expressing my thoughts, I can help inspire and support other moms going through tough times. 

My little boy was born with CDH (congenital diaphragmatic hernia) and it changed our lives forever and inspired this site. You can read his birth story here.

But here we are now, with a happy & healthy miracle baby and I cherish each day with him on this earth. Together with my family, we are designing a life we LOVE!
