Get to know me

About Me:

Hello there, and welcome to my website! I'm Aly, and here's a little bit about me and what you can expect from my little corner of the internet.

As a self-proclaimed proud nerd, I deeply value a multifaceted approach to life. Personal, digital, and home organization are integral parts of my fulfilling journey. Crafting and DIY projects are where my creativity flourishes, and I can't wait to share them with you. The science of longevity facilitates me, and I'm here to share the insights I've gained through my extensive research and interest, in maintaining your health, well-being, and youthful skin, all while embracing a cost-conscious and sustainable lifestyle.

My mission is simple: to be creative, hopefully create and share something valuable for someone, and have fun doing it.

Alongside my role as a devoted dog mom to Mini Aussies Bruce and Grace, a loving wife to my 💖supportive husband, and a full-time civil servant in IT project management, I embarked on the adventure of content creation at the age of 44, with absolutely zero prior social media experience or wherewithall. Everyday of this journey is a whole new world and I'm thrilled to connect with a like-minded community that values creativity, productivity, and personal growth.

There's a wealth of insight, creativity, and inspiration waiting for you here, and on my YouTube channel. Welcome to my digital corner.
