Get to know me

Hi guys so I had taken a break from blogging for a few weeks in December. I am in my fourth year of college so the exam stress was real!! I couldn’t wait to finish to enjoy some family time but seen as it’s the new year and all that jazz, I thought I might get back into the swing of things. I would like to create more content but it is just a hobby so I cannot always guarantee regular content. I thought I would share some random facts about me to kick off the new year as I feel it’s hard to get to know someone from pictures so here it goes:

My name is Alma

I am 30 years old, I remember thinking people who are 30 were ancient so I’m officially ancient no point in fighting it!

I am in a relationship

I have two wonderful children. A boy called Reece aged 10 and a little girl called Harlow aged 3. I love being their parent, they drive me crazy sometimes but I wouldn’t change it for the world. The far from perfect days make the good ones even better. I also have a teenage stepson who I’m very lucky to be part of his life. We are the definition of the rainbow family but you know what they say you can’t have rainbows without the rain.

I had my son when I was twenty. I have learned a lot from being a young parent it’s not something I would necessarily advise but I believe in fate and he was my happy chance.

I am currently a full-time student in LIT

When I finish college in May this year, I want to train to be an accountant

Why did I set up a blog? I started this blog at a time in my life when things were very bad for me personally. The rug had been lifted from underneath me. I looked around and quite honestly, I didn’t recognise my life. I didn’t really know who I was anymore it was a very difficult time. I had previously considered setting up a blog in the past but talked myself out of it but feeling like this pushed me to just do it!

I love all things fashion, hair, beauty and interiors. I also wanted to share something a bit different I wanted to bring a bit more writing to my blog. I was originally going to use the blog to gain more social media knowledge for my final year college project but I’ve now changed my topic so it’s become purely a hobby.

Since setting up he blog I’ve learned it can be a quite a time-consuming hobby and I have felt conflicted in whether it was worth the time and I have considered stopping because of this a few times.

Why the name find the wonderful? The name itself came to me because one of my best friends Hannah uses the phrase “that would be wonderful” all the time and since I needed to find what would be wonderful again I thought it was a good fit

I am a qualified beauty therapist. I gained my qualification in the evenings and I was working in an office at the time which I really enjoyed so I didn’t pursue a career in beauty therapy.

I am both fascinated and terrified of sharks, cage diving with them off the coast of South Africa is on my bucket list whether I would get in to the cage is questionable. I am an avid fan of Shark Week don’t judge me!

I am terrified of anything scary. I never watch any horror movies, I barely watch anything with a murder scene. Crime shows like criminal minds give me nightmares. I’m so bad that I turn down the volume on the radio when an ad for a horror movie comes on. Total weirdo! My friend’s slag me all the time for being such a whimp.

Speaking of my friends they are my second family

I love being a tourist visiting new places both at home and away. Adventures both big and small are my favourite past time.

My favourite city is Paris if you haven’t been book it now you won’t regret it!!

I am a total Disney addict I collect all things Disney including the limited-edition DVDs.  We went to Disneyland Paris three years ago and when I saw the castle I nearly cried, my eyes literally welled up, my son looked at me as if to say would you ever pull yourself together

My favourite colour is pink. I’m the total girly cliché.

I rarely watch television. When I do I usually a binge watch Netflix on a Saturday night cause that’s about as wild as it gets with me these days. I’m obsessed with Once Upon a Time it’s the only series I have EVER watched passed series 4. I always just lose interest at that point.

I love up-cycling and home décor

I also love arts and crafts and gardening. I know I’m a total granny.

My favourite flowers are pink roses

I am not a morning person at all

My dream job would probably be party planning for the rich and famous. So, Kris Jenner if your reading this give me a call!! I love hosting parties. I love a themed party, bit of dress up, total lunacy but it’s something I enjoy.

I rarely shop in an actual shop apart from my weekly food shop and Penney’s. I buy nearly everything online. I prefer the choice, no ques and no horrible changing room lighting.

I firmly believe I suffer from the medical condition which means I cannot tolerate the sound of other people chewing food, I’ve been known to leave the room because of it.

I’ve a weird baby gender prediction sense . I currently have an unbroken record! I’m either very fluky or I’ve a witchy sense who knows

I cannot drink alcohol if I do I suffer like a scene from Emily Rose, due to my ancient status nights out are very rare these days

I love vegetables not too keen on fruit though

I hate feet I can barely look at my own, my friends also think its hilarious to harass me with pictures of feet

I’ve never broken a bone this is largely due to my avoidance of all sports and rough play growing up. Yes, I was that child

I’m terrified of heights like literally my legs go weak, the sweats, dizziness can’t cope

I am also not very keen on inconvenience!!

I do however love reading and writing. I make lists for everything and I still use a diary instead of my phone. I love writing letters. I write my children a letter for their birthday each year. Funny enough the easter bunny and Santy also leave letters in our house when they visit.



Love A




Ps: Thanks for reading. Hopefully ye know me a little bit more now than before.
