The "About Me" Post

I assumed, as most other bloggers would, to make my very first post ALL about me. The short description on the side only allows so much and I'm sure as I continue to write and post on here, you'll learn even more. But for right now, here is the basis of my being. My name is Alexandra. I'm 20 years old and recently moved across country from California to Georgia with my husband for the military. We both have NO family here so it's been a very stressful adjustment, to say the very least. As hard of time as it's been, I'm trying very hard to remain hopeful that I'll finally get some "roots" here, as my husband likes to say to me. I'm aiming to get a degree in international communications at the local university.
I'm a California girl, born and raised. I have a best friend who also happens to be my husband, my rock, and my favorite person in the world. I have two dogs named Nahzee and Syrus. Both persian names. One is a papillon/dachshund mix. The other is a husky/border collie mix. Both of them were adopted from shelters!

I have a tendency to crave change in my life whether it be my hair, my music, my arrangement of furniture, or even my perfume. I always need to change these things! I love being barefoot and I love the heat. Good thing I'm in Georgia, right? It's usually 90+ degrees here. I've traveled to England and France once and I fell in love and really would love to do more traveling. My first choice would be Greece, because that's where a lot of my family's heritage comes from. I love and miss my parents, they were also my two best friends. The umbilical cord was never truly cut until I had to move to Georgia. I enjoy finding sweet deals on EVERYTHING. I'm a bargain hunter, especially for makeup! I have a Nikon D70 which I try to take with me as often as possible. Now that I have this blog, I'll be sure to get more creative with it. Lastly, I decided to start this blog as a new form of creativity. I've actually been a fan of a few well known bloggers on here for a while now; Miss. Natty's Beauty Diary and Mariannan

I've always loved reading their photo updates , tutorials, and information on products. Now that I've moved across country, I figured it'd be a good way to start getting creative again and pushing myself to explore this area that will hopefully start feeling like home.

I hope you enjoyed this introductory post. There will be many more to come.



  1. That's exactly why I started my blog too =) It's hard being away from all your friends and family! And let's face it, our guys don't really care how cute our new nailpolish is, or that we found an amazing deal on a new pair of heels. lol!
    Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging!!

  2. Bethany, thankyou so much! Did you move for the military as well? And it's true, my husband puts in great effort to ask about my "girly" things, but in the end, it's not his favorite thing to talk about. lol Very happy to have discovered blogging :}

  3. Good Luck on your new blog, I just started one last week also!! :o)
