About Me


I’m Desiree, a LA born, Jersey girl. I’m married to an amazing man named David. Together we maneuver through adulthood and parenting. We have 4 fantastic mini men who range from mid teens to infant. These mini men along with our 3 dogs keep us on our toes. Talk about a full house!

I’m a geek with a love for cupcakes, Harry Potter, snail mail, makeup, and all the shiny things. Lover of life, documenting all the special moments along the way. You can catch me at the beach (of course cause I’m a mermaid), the gym, conventions, and anywhere I’m surrounded by books. If you ever see me around feel free to say hi.
Welcome to my world and the fabulous (and not so fabulous), parts of it.

    I know what it’s like to have one health condition after another (mostly down to food intollerances and neurological weirdness) but I’ve only just started to blog about it. Thank you for sharing your life on this page, I wish more people were this honest! I’ll enjoy reading your journey and swapping cool/geeky obsessions :0D

    • Desiree

      Thank you for taking the time to read. It’s tough to be open about your life, and especially body image/weight related things but I know I’m not alone. I was thinking of revamping my About Me, since the blog isn’t just about my health but my life in general.

  • Manchester Flik Chik

    Maybe include more about the geeky fun side of you :0) I found your blog through the geeky Friday linky.

    • Desiree

      Yes that’s what I’m thinking too. While my blog still is gonna have health related content I want people to know about other things too.

  • I completely understand! I am diagnose with PCOS (hormone disorder) which interrupts my ability to lose weight easily. Constant struggle! But I’ve kept at it with up and down journeys. You are right. We are here to motivate each other that becoming fit and healthy IS possible!

    • Desiree

      Yes it is! It may take time but it’s possible. Best of luck with your journey.
