About Me

Hey, I'm Alice
Welcome to my small corner of the internet. I started this space to chronicle the adventures after having turned my life upside down. In July 2014, I  married a handsome military gentleman (Tom) and moved house, county and job. (Oh, and recently acquired a puppy). Its been quite the learning curve but a lot of fun.

Here I share our adventures, my love for life's simple pleasures, general musings and reviews of books I have read, series I have watched and places I have been.

The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters

My blogging journey
When I began this space, I scrolled through a lot of blogs to try and discover how they'd got from unknown to known... I couldn't work it out so I thought I would record my own blogging journey. It may be as much a 'how not to do it' as a 'how to do it' but, if you're interested you can find it here:
                 Week 1 in the blogging world...
                1 month in the blogging world...
                2 months in the blogging world...
                4 months in the blogging world...

10 random facts about the girl behind the blog:
1. Happiness is my biggest life goal and I try not to take life too seriously.
2. Lover of all things Vintage
3. I have a fascination for living in weird places(none of which I have actually achieved yet):
                - windmill
                - thatched cottage
                - narrow boat
                - ranch
                - light house
4. Paris is my favourite city and I may be a closet francophile
5. Audrey Hepburn is my only famous role model.
6. I wish that I could be the Bree Hodge type of housewife - perfect house, perfect garden and perfect cooking. However, I'm more of the 'Alice kind' and it's really a lot more fun not being perfect. I'd miss laughing at my own failed endeavours!
7. I will never be too old to take pleasure in making somebody jump. As much as I enjoy it I'm not very good at it... I will hide waiting to pounce shaking with laughter and then dissolve when the person appears and completely ruin it... Occasionally however, I do manage it and I giggle about it for months afterwards (maybe even years).
8. I have a wild imagination... both a blessing and a curse. 
9. I don't really like to follow the crowd... Normal is boring.
10. I'm a people person, and not a career lady - I go to work 9-5 because we need to pay our bills and save so that we can pay for our next adventures... 

I am currently posting on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays. If you wish to contact me please email throughthesegrayeyes at gmail.com.

I really hope you enjoy this cosy corner of the internet...grab a brew and stay a while.




  1. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who thinks it would be cool to live in a lighthouse. Wow awesome would that be!! And Audrey Hepburn is one of my heroes as well. I love that quote!
