Life and the Pursuit of Happiness

Anne Parnell

I am an active, sometimes outgoing person, who runs her own business.

I recently discovered a love for fashion, makeup, and hair; and have always been a lover of food. I am an active participant in roller derby, in a few ways. I am a cat owner and adore animals of all kinds.

This is my little space of the internet to allow me to voice opinions, talk about, photograph and review things as I see fit.

I will have a variety of topics happening, sometimes updating more about one topic than another but generally, this site is about things I love and am excited by.

Sit back, enjoy and feel free to comment/contact me about anything on these blogs or in general.

Who You Gonna Call?

I was never a big fan of the original Ghostbusters. I don’t even recall ever actually watching the whole film, so the whole idea of a remake of it didn’t bother me beyond the whole idea of Hollywood not having an original idea. The idea of an all-female Ghostbusting...

Just Keep Swimming!

Like most people my age, when I heard that they were making a sequel to Finding Nemo, I was both elated and concerned. Finding Nemo was one of those films which I held up as something amazing. So the odds that its sequel live up to it was something I wasn’t sure it...

Something weird is happening with me. For years I hated studying. It took me multiple attempts to find a degree at university that would keep my attention. I tried environmental management type courses, internet related courses before ending up with a degree in...
