A sneak peek

To start, let me tell you a bit about myself. I am currently 30 years old and I love life (srsly). I love to express absolute joy at the littlest things – no matter how silly or mundane, to me pretty much everything is wonderful & magical. When most people describe me, it usually starts with:

  • She loves Harry Potter” (its true, even though I’ve toned it down a bit over the years)
  • Or sometimes “Oh, the girl with the crazy hair?” I’ve had more hair styles than I could count and it usually includes some wild colour. Currently I’m rocking a sweet undercut with flamingo pink hi-lights (courtesy of my fav brand of hair dye – Punky colour)

I work part time as a Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer (easier: “Echo Tech”), meaning I spend my days imaging hearts with ultrasound. It is my absolute DREAM job – I get to investigate and listen to hearts all day long, what’s not to love? Sometimes we get to see some really wild and obscure heart diseases and its always such a learning experience.

My free time (time not at work) is usually spent one of a few ways:

  • Cleaning my house – “House Love” more often than not, I get all of my house tidies done on a day off and its such a good sense of calm when I’m done. Kitchen tidied, dishes away, laundry done (probably folded… probably not put away, but whatever… I’ll get there one day).
  • Workin’ on my Fitness – I am a member of Goodlife Fitness (for the past 4-5 years or so). I am usually in the gym 3-4 days of the week for about 45minutes a piece (unless I’m taking a yoga class). I always go on my day’s off (a promise I made to myself when I signed up), and when I’m working I go on my way home… cause you know the second I get home, I’m relaxing and not much else is getting done.
  • Crafting! I am a MASSIVE fan of yarn and colour. I learned to crochet a few years ago and just fell in love. You can create so many wonderful things out of yarn and a hook. I love making blankets (hello no gauge swatch!) and little fiddly things (flowers, stuffies, etc).
  • I love to create in the kitchen too – I am a big fan of all things food, with the exception of a few items that I can no longer digest (I’m lookin’ at you avocado!). I love reading food blogs and trying new recipes. I am partial to dessert and sweet items, but I’ll try my hand at random savoury recipes too.

(I’m also a really big fan of sleep. So when I’m not working, working out, or creating… I’m probably sleeping).
