Kia Ora, my name is Lizzie and welcome to my cyber home for my blog posts!
Here you will find my musings on whatever sparks my fingers into typing. As a starting point I have split posts between blog posts and makeup & beauty posts and these can be navigated to in the menu above. Please feel free to read what is of interest to you, and/or leave a comment, and/or ask a question, and thank you for visiting!
A little bit about me…
I grew up in Aotearoa (New Zealand) and spent my childhood predominately as a bookworm who imagined herself inhabiting Narnia and Middle Earth. Not content with the mundane existence of school, I was sure I was an elf from Rivendell (or maybe Lothlórien), ready to play a part in defeating Sauron.
This nerdish streak persisted into my teenage years where I decided to embrace and accept it. In adulthood I ventured beyond the shores of Aotearoa and now reside in the UK.
I like to walk around bare foot and I enjoy my food (alas, despite childhood fantasies, it turns out that I may very well be a hobbit – albeit with elvish aspirations). I enjoy music and I like to read and write. I like to cook (cf. TheBoganBuddha) and craft things. I grew up fascinated by aircraft and still like to attend airshows. I like to visit historical sites and find history fascinating. I adore ‘vintage’ and glamour. I enjoy Sci-Fi (though I don’t really watch TV anymore). My first crush was MacGyver.
I approach life via the Golden Rule (a consistent Work-In-Progress). I am an eclectic Kiwi Scori-orpi-orpio Girl. I like naff things, I can be embarrassingly nerdy, and the peculiar fascinates me.
