Getting to know me: The Girl Behind As Told By Nella

Hi everyone,

For the past few weeks I’ve had a great amount of support on this my little blog here and I truly appreciate it. I am so happy that you all have joined me on this journey. And I think it’s time I got a little bit more personal about who I am.

As we continue this journey together, I will do more these getting to know me chats where I share with you my hopes, dreams, thoughts, quirks, and motivations. So as we enter into the New Year allow me to share a little part of me…..

1. I’m an avid stationery enthusiast.

Yes I LOVE STATIONERY. I buy it because it’s beautiful. I buy it because it feels great. The way a new book smells once you’ve bought it, the feel and glide of a pen, pencil and highlighter under your fingers. I absolutely love it. I sometimes go to a stationery store for therapeutic release. Weird I know.

2. My favourite fantasy series is…….. The Lord of the Rings.

J. R. R. Tolkien was a literary genius. I have all the books. I never miss the movies. The story is just absolutely amazing. I absolutely love the series.

3. My favourite superhero is The Flash.

He’s funny, wears red and has a really good heart and sense of justice. What more can I say? He’s just awesome. I do, however, dislike modern adaptions of him (with the exception of The Flash on CW), they have dumbed him down and they don’t show the full reach and range of his powers. I mean the man can change time for Christ’s sake. He could literally stop something before it begins. Come on creators! Do better!

4. I’m afraid of falling from high places.

It’s not the height that gets me, it’s the idea that I could plummet to an unfortunate end that scares me. However, that doesn’t stop me from rope swinging, cliff diving and wanting to bungee jump, sky dive and zipline in the future. Weird… I know!

5. I love the colour red.

It represents so much as a colour. It’s a colour of extremes. It represents fire, danger, anger, war, wrath, excitement, and adventure. Yet, it also symbolizes energy, joy, love, passion, desire, seduction, longing, lust, sexuality, and romance.  It’s further seen as a symbol of power, strength, courage, vibrancy, radiance, good luck and determination. Red is also a magical and religious colour. It symbolized super-human heroism to the Greeks and is the colour of the Christian crucifixion. It’s just purely beautiful. I just love it.

So there you have it folks; 5 fun little facts about me. What do you think? I’d love to hear from you. Leave your comments below and if you haven’t already, I’d love it if you followed my blog.


With Love,

  1. I love your site! It’s so clean & chic, super pretty! I haven’t gotten into stationary but I feel like everyone else is and it’s therapeutic I’ve heard, along with keeping you organized. I’ll definitely look into buying some for myself. Happy New Year and I hope 2018 treats you well!
