About the Geek


Who I Am

Hello, my name is Paula and this is my blog.

I love to write. And this blog is my place to do so. I write about the things I love, my life, my opinions, anything that is on my mind. Hopefully you will enjoy reading what I have to say, and will share some of your thoughts with me in the comments.

I am also an assistant manager for a major retail store. I’ve been in retail for over 15 years, and for 14 of those years I’ve been in various supervisory positions. It’s why I’m so bossy. Only in the past five years did I finally start to think of retail as a career and not just a way to fund my travels and clothing addiction.

I view life as one big learning opportunity, so I’m always sharing what I’ve learned on the blog.

I’m a book nerd. Give me some Stephen King, Dean Koontz, JK Rowling, JRR Tolkien, Kate Morton or Neil Gaiman and I’m a happy girl. Though I usually prefer sci-fi and fantasy, Gone with the Wind is my favorite book.

I’m a fantasy geek! Narnia, Amber, Hogwarts, Middle Earth, Camelot, Neverland. I’ve been there. Done that.

I love to shop. Obviously, it is in the title after all. I love clothes, shoes, purses, and of course, books! And the occasional Nancy Drew game.

I love to travel. I’ve been everywhere, man.

I have a chihuahua named Buffy. A boyfriend called Cap. A sister named, Paige. And a grandma called Poppy. All are frequently mentioned on the blog. And of course, I have a Mom and Dad, but it’s kind of obvious who I’m talking about when I say Mom and Dad.

Buffy Summers is my all time favorite super hero.

Nancy Drew was my child hood hero. Still is actually.

Winnie the Pooh is my lifestyle guru.

I am somewhat obsessed with Supernatural, Doctor Who, and Sherlock. AKA SuperWhoLock.

I have five tattoos.

I’ve had a website of some form since 1999. I started blogging in 2010. A little late to the game, but better late than never.
