Not Just a Pretty Face # 4 - Me!

{I took this low-res self-shot on my ancient digital camera ESPECIALLY} *

I'm Amy (you know, the writer of this blog) and I'm here - in the series where I introduce bloggers to you - to introduce.... myself.


1. Favourite colour
{ for now...}

2. By Day...
Architecture student. 

As a little kid I was caught drawing floor plans even though I didn't know what they were called or that they were a "real thing".

I could read books of house blueprints for hours and hours...  

My dream is to design a series of houses and offer interior design services on the side.
I will of course run this from my dream office.

3. By Night...
1) Wife! As of nearly-7-weeks ago....
As it happens, I am way too domestic for my own good. 
Having to do homework in my spare time rather than baking and tidying kills me! For serious! 

2) Interior design junkie... I dream of more time for DIYs and room makeovers

3) Woman of faith

4)  Daughter. I have the world's most beautiful Mother, who made my wedding dress... blood sweat and tears people!

5) Sister to 2 handsome men (... I just called them MEN... what is this..? You can spy them in my wedding post singing an item with the guitar)

6)....... no that's about it.

4. Summer or winter?

I feel like it rains all year in New Zealand and I dream of a climate where I never need to carry a jacket and I could have garden parties all the time...

5. Secret weakness

6. Signature style

7. Greatest Day of My Life


8. An embarrasing moment

It involved my new boss's BMW,

...some serious incompetence on my part

..and the guy in the car behind me who had to get out to come park for me. Twice.

OH and also a big scrape down the side of the car

9. Current Projects

10. The Best Thing about Blogging
I kinda love everything about it.
Pictures make me happy. 
Colours make me happy...
...And finding other people exist in the world who feel the same way? Amazing!

Now it's your turn to share - what do you love about blogging? Anyone else got mean sugar cravings right now...?

*  Any photographer-buffs out there who would like to give me some tips on getting, and using, a REAL camera? I'm crossing my fingers for a birthday present!

  1. I love this post! Isn't it interesting that we seem to know what we want to do even as young children? I was always cutting, sticking and pasting so I guess its no surprise that I recently opened my Etsy shop.

    Congratulations on getting married! Your dress is really beautiful - what a talented mum!

  14. Such a cute post!*

  15. Smashing post! :) Your embarrassing moment cracked me up! And I still love that gray suit.

    What I heart about blogging is just being able to share my thoughts and get a little bit of feedback. I also like that it doesn't 'have' to be a everyday task; just do when and what you can.

  16. I love your blog! And this little 'about me' post is so sweet :-)

    Pictures and colours make me happy too.

    I also love that you're from New Zealand cos there ain't many of us in this bloggy world from little ol' NZ.


Thanks for your comment. You are awesome!
