About Me


Welcome to my blog!  My name is Felicity (meaning 'happiness') and I'm a thirty two year old gemini still trying to figure out this little thing called life.

I live in Brisbane, Australia with my husband, David, and our toddler, Matilda. Between us we have four miniature dachshunds: Ellie, Louis, Gertrude and Nala. In my free time (when I'm not at work) I like to take Matilda on adventures (music class, swimming lessons, playdates), spend time with friends and family, try out new vegan restaurants and recipes, travel, binge watch Netflix, and check out different Escape Rooms with David when we have a very rare child free night.

L-R: Louis, Gertrude, Ellie and Nala


The Blog

I originally started this blog back in April of 2011 as a way of documenting life in my twenties for my future offspring. Since then this blog has simply become a way of expressing myself and connecting with others. I ended up deleting most of my older posts, but I may re-share a few in the future.

I actually came up with my blog name many years ago while I was watching the movie 'The Pursuit of Happyness'.  The movie title got me thinking about how the definition of my name is happiness and how fitting it was that I was constantly in pursuit of happiness.  I started using 'Pursuit of Felicity' for my online branding from that point onward.

Some Random Tidbits:

♡  I have a bachelors degree in Primary Education and work as a Public Servant in the Disability Support Sector.
♡  I have an unhealthy obsession with miniature dachshunds that started back in 2007 and escalated in 2010 when my family brought home a miniature dachshund puppy named Phoebe. This eventually led to me bringing home Ellie in 2014 and Nala in 2015, before moving in with my now husband and his two miniature dachshunds named Louis and Gertrude.
♡  I've been vegan since the 27th September 2015 and have been a huge foodie ever since. Food has never excited me as much as it does being cruelty free.
