I’ve started YouTube!

Hello lovelies!Β I haven’t posted on here in a loooong time, I could come up with thousands of excuses as to why I was too busy to blog, many of which are true, but the reality is, is that I have a complete love hate relationship with blogging. I really enjoy it when I first get going but after that first post, it seems like a chore – I sit at a computer typing away all day, it’s not really something I want to do when I get home. It’s not that I don’t want to discuss things that interest me, I do! But I’ve come to the conclusion that maybe writing about the things that I love isn’t the right way for me to express myself.

So instead I’ve been doing something else, I’ve been making YouTube videos! I’ve not been doing it for very long but I absolutely love it and I already have 32 subscribers – how amazing is that?! I was only hoping for a couple after I’d made a fair few videos so to already have 32 subscribers is fantabulous! πŸ™‚ Here is my latest video if anyone’s interested!

I’m focussing mainly on my journey to lose weight with Slimming World but as I get into the swing of it I want to start making videos about other things that I love like beauty, crafting and anything else that takes my fancy. I’ll be posting my videos on here every week as another place for them to live, but if you’d rather then please do come and join my little gang of subscribers!

See you next week, lots of love, Hannah πŸ™‚ x x x

15 Facts About Me

So I’ve not exactly been active on my blog, I had big plans but holidays and procrastination and pictures of puppies got in the way and almost two months later I’m only just writing my second blog post – slap on the wrist for me! But I opened up my laptop this evening and was in a blogging mood so I figured let’s just do this thing.
Since my first blog post was short and sweet, I’m doing a 15 facts about me to inject a little personalityΒ to my corner of the internet πŸ™‚ I’ve also included a picture of my face so that you can imagine me babbling on, what a treat for the eyes! Now, are you sitting comfortably? Well then let’s begin!

One.
Starting with the basics, I’m 23 years old and I currently live and work in the North East of England, although I originally come from the midlands in England.

Two.
When I was a baby, my feet turned inwards and my hips fused before they started to point the right way. So since around the age of two I’ve been going to the chiropractor and started ballet classes to get them looking a bit more normal! I always used to trip and fall over my own feet and to be honest I still do this because I’m SO clumsy, but now the only time they turn inwards are when I’m a tired bunny.

Three.
My biggest, biggest, BIGGEST irritation is the sound of people eating or breathing. I cannot even begin to explain how much I cannot stand this sound, it’s sort of a wet, sloppy, disgusting noise. It makes me cringe just thinking about it. I’m aware it’s a teensy bit of an overection which is probably just as annoying for the poor soul just trying to eat their dinner as it is for me listening to it, but it actually has a name – Misophonia. So yeah, use your mouths responsibly guys, this is a thing!

Four.
I love to sing – I sing to myself and my loved ones on an almost constant basis, generally songs I composeΒ on the spot.

Five.
I am very bad at singing, some have likened me to a bag of cats. I think I’d be the joke act on X Factor and I would love every second of it.

Six.
I am a teensy, weensy, little bit lactose intolerant. Basically, my stomach has a tantrum whenever I have milk, ice cream or a lot of yoghurt. “Oh come on, that’s not a real thing, you’re just being an attention seeking hipster!” I hear you roar. I invite you to come and take a seat next to me next time I have large amounts of dairy – Not. A. Pleasant. Experience.

Seven.
My first and only pet was a hamster…called hamster. Yes I know, original and witty.

Eight.
I’ve been doing Slimming World for about a year and a half now and I adore it! I’m a huge fan of pasta so the fact that you can have unlimited amounts of the stuff on Slimming World is basically like living in a dreamworld for me.

Β Nine.
I’m not into people touching my face – please don’t, that’s where I smell, see, hear and speak from, it’s a sensory overload. I mean, why you would want to anyway is beyond me, but apparently pinching cheeks, booping noses and just generally having a good old feel of other peoples faces is acceptable behaviour in modern day society.

Ten.
My favourite season is Autumn, so as you might expect, I’m pretty much in a constant state of excitement as it creeps closer and closer. There are so many things to enjoy – chunky knits, autumn nail polish, fiery red trees, hot chocolate, the smell of bonfires, fireworks, just everything! I love it!

Eleven.
My favourite colour has always been green, so living in the country side is really quite great, everywhere I look it’s green – poifect!

Twelve.
My favourite number is four, I’m not entirely sure why, but one day I just really took a shine to it (weirdo).

Thirteen.
I’m quite handy with a pair of chopsticks (if I do say so myself) I actually find it easier to eat noodles and rice with chopsticks rather than a knife and fork. I recently went on holiday to Florida where we visited the World Showcase in Epcot. I bought a really pretty pair of chopsticks from the Japan section and the girl at the counter was so excited to hear that I like to use them, she was really sweet!

Fourteen.
I have really bendy fingers and thumbs, I think it’s fun and cool, other people think it’s creepy and weird.

Fifteen.
I have my own Harry Potter wand, which I made from a stick in the garden (when I was little, I might add!) and dabbed a gel pen on the end of it to make it look like it contained a mystical unicorn hair or phoenix feather. I know this makes me extremely cool, please don’t be intimidated.

So that’s it folks! I hoped you enjoyed learning a little about me, I know that I always really enjoy reading these types of blog posts (mainly because I’m nosey!). I know that people normally do 25 or even 50 facts, but I like to keep a little mystery – don’t want to go giving everything away on the first date second blog post!

Lots of Love, Hannah x x

Hello world!

I thought about changing the title of this post (it’s the one that WordPress automatically gives to your first entry) but it seems to fit pretty well with what this post is about, a big virtual handshake to whoever might be reading this.

I’m not entirely new to blogging, I had a halfhearted attempt a few years ago before entering into a gigantic writers block which, rather than tackling head on, I gave into. Oops. Maybe that’s not something I should be admitting on my shiny new blog but it’s honest and it’s a part of me, and that’s what this blog is, an extension of myself. I’m not going into this with a direction or a particular purpose, I’m going to write about whatever takes my fancy and that’s a very exciting and freeing thought!

I’ll keep this short because no-one reads these anyway, let’s get stuck in!
