Hey! I am Ella. Welcome to my world.

Ella Talei (pronounced tah-lay) Paramore.

Contrary to popular belief, I am actually not named after the band 'Paramore' - I had my last name first!

I am a twenty-two-year-old food fanatic & travel addict who is currently living in Los Angeles, California.

I am Kiwi-born and Aussie-raised. But regardless of my upbringing, I will forever be loyal to the All Blacks!

I started this blog when I was seventeen, about to make the move back across the ditch from Sydney to Auckland to study Communications. Initially, it was a way to keep in touch with friends and family back in Australia. But as my world keeps growing, it has become a way for me to connect with all kinds of people and to keep a record of what is going on in my crazy, unpredictable existence.

They say that when you start a blog you should have a "niche", like fashion, food, lifestyle or whatever. This blog really has no niche. Its a random collection of some of the thoughts, dreams, moments and adventures that make up my life.

I guess you could say that it is a record of my journeys: from journeys around my local areas and journeys across the world to journeying through life and learning a heck of a lot along the way!
