Hey there! I’m Amy and welcome to She’s So Wilsy – a hub for those with a passion for travel, beauty and healthy living.
I want this to be a space where we share our tips and tricks, check out new ideas and give out good vibes to each other. Most importantly, I want this to be sharing stuff on here which is useful and can help with the real day to day dilemmas.
What does She’s So Wilsy mean?
Here’s a secret… It took me a whole year to name and start this blog. Why? Because I’m a weirdo who has trouble committing and worried the blog wouldn’t be good enough. So I did a gazzilian brainstorms but kept putting off making a decision. It was becoming ridiculous, so in the end I thought to myself “fuck it”. I was to go with whatever name I came up within the space of five minutes.
The word wilsy is just a made-up word that popped into my head at the time.
The longer story is that after coming up with She’s So Wilsy, I asked a few people what they thought about it…. and they weren’t into it!! Normally or in the past, I would have gone back to the drawing board at this stage. This time I didn’t. Wilsy reminded me of the idea of being strong-willed or ballsy. I liked it and I wanted to break out of the pattern of agonising or over-thinking decisions or the ‘what ifs’.
She’s So Wilsy was my moment of ‘getting it’ and having the confidence to go for it and trust my own myself and my instincts. Over the last year, I started to see things in a different way. Instead of getting fixated on going up the career ladder, I started thinking about why that felt important to me. Turns out it wasn’t. What was important to me was my family, my friends, a sense of freedom, to take risks and travel more.
I didn’t want to be using my holidays away from work to escape life stresses. Instead I want to be travelling for adventure, to gain new experiences and enjoy the moment. Or that food isn’t just a necessary chore to give me the energy I need for the day. But actually by eating crap, I’m choosing not to take care of myself. Or that there’s more to being beautiful than having the perfect sized boobs or flawless skin.
It’s a feeling like “a-ha, I get it” and being able to figure out and prioritise what’s actually important. I wanted to capture and encourage these moments on this blog.
It turns out that writing about myself feels a tad awkward so here are some random facts about me instead! If nothing else, I hope this helps you get to know me a little better.
