I have been racking my brains on how to start off this blog, I'm not someone who likes to talk primarily about myself so the easiest way I could say 'Hi this is me' is to do it via an A-Z of Sweet Elyse. I have seen others do this on other blogs so hope that you enjoy the post as much as i have enjoyed writing it.
Age. Currently i am twenty eight but feel so much older than that in a good way.
Beauty. I love beauty products and can spend hours procrastinating reading beauty blogs. I'm not hugely into the theatrical make-up, i am more of a improving what nature gave me gal.
Cake!! cannot get enough of cakes and sweet stuff, my favourite cake has to be a good carrot cake with a ton of icing.
Drawing, i love drawing. It's one of those things where you can't remember when you started but know you have been doing it and enjoying for as long as i've been able to.
Eye colour is green although my eyes go black or grey when i am angry and they go really bright green when i have a migraine, strange but true.
Flowers. my favourites are lillies, gerbera's and lilacs. As i get older i find i am more interested in wild flowers such as snowdrops and lilacs and daisy's.
Glee! and watch it without fail every week and have done since it first started in the UK.
Hometown is Fife in Scotland. I love it here and cannot imagine ever wanting to stay anywhere else.
Ink. I do have tattoo's and would love more. I have a really bad tattoo where the tattooist actually split the skin therefore slitting my wrist which took months to heal. The scar is quite bad and really thin. *booo* I also have an anchor on the top of my foot with a ribbon round it. I got it to emphasise my husband and how he keeps me anchored in life.
Job. I currently work full time for a building society. The particular Building society i work for make the role enjoyable. I have worked for a bank before and hated it! vowing to never go back into financial based employment. My real job in my eyes is being a mummy. It doesn't pay the greatest but is the most rewarding thing i have EVER done and will do.
Karma and Kindness is something i really believe in and feel that society is loosing touch off the ability to be nice for no reason at all. I believe in doing something selfless every single day and have seen the benefits of it karma wise.
Learning. I am a big learner and love to continually learn new things. I am slightly geeky in that way and continually find I know the answers to the most random questions. I am the go to girl for random answers. Yay, to learning.
Married. I have been married to my childhood sweat-heart now for over eight years and I love him more every year. He gets more handsome every year so that may help *hehe*
Nostaliga. I am nostalgic and don't know if that's something that comes with being a mummy. Even my husband is becoming nostalgic too. Does anyone remember the moondreamers, Green sleeves, when penny sweets where a penny and when trolls where cool and dummy necklaces where the 'it' thing???? anyone...no...just me then? lol.
Patchwork is another of my loves. I started off learning patchwork before i ventured into quilting, there's nothing more delightful than seeing a patchwork creation.
Quilting, I absolutely love quilting and although i am a newbie i can see this as a craft i will continue well into old age.
Reading. I love to read and have read so many books in the last year and a half that i simple cannot keep count. I feel that there are so many wonderful books where as when i was younger there tended to be only a few major novels out at any one time. My favourite authors are Stephenie Meyer, LJ Smith, C.C Hunter, Carrie Jones, Sophie Kinsella, Jane Costello, Chloe Neill and Rachel Caine. (that's not even scratching the surface of my favourites)
Sons. I have three boys aged three, five and six. I know it's cliche but they really are my world.
Thrifting. I am a huge thrifter and scrimper. If i can get it for free or do it for free or cheaply then i'm in. Currently i participate in a long list of survey sites, review sites and mystery shopping sites which have allowed me to near enough cover Christmas for free. *yay* for thrifting.
Underwear, hate it!! i feel so constricted and cannot wait to get in the house so i can take it off and go 'aaaaahhh' Although i completely cannot live without my fluffy socks and feel 'ewwey' when i don't have them on.
VW Camper vans and Vampires!! Cannot get enough of these and my husband and i's dream when we retire is to travel the UK in one. Also i love all things vampire, such as Twilight, Vampire diaries, True Blood and a host of other vampishly good tv and books.
Wolves. I love wolves and they have to be my most favourite animal ever. When people ask what animal you would be if you came back i always want to be a wolf. Intelligent, primal and family orientated. I believe i have the instincts of a wolf especially when it comes to my little cubs.
Zzzzz's something that i am too good at and i can wrack up to 15 hours of interrupted sleep if i am left alone. I need sleep more than anyone else i know due to having a variety of health problems such as fibromyalgia, CFS and other things.
So that's the nearly complete A-Z of me Sweet Elyse, What would your A-Z be? Post your A-Z post links below.
