Happy Christmas Everyone

Happy Christmas everyone! I really hope you all have a lovely day. I will be spending mine watching Christmas movies, opening all my presents and having a lovely lunch with my family. 

An update on me and where I've been lately will be coming to the blog in the new year, and all I'll say for now is I have some very big and exciting things to tell you soon!

But for now, have a brilliant Christmas and I hope you all have a fun New Year...

Thanks Guys

For those of you who follow my Youtube channel you will know that I did a week of Vlogtober last week, and you know what?! I loved every minute of it, and am really missing not doing it this week. Which is funny because I really thought I'd end up getting sick of vlogging by the third day,

Let Me Tell You About My New Phone

A few years back I got my first iPhone, the iPhone 4, and I bloody loved everything about it. A couple years past then it was time for an upgrade, again I chose iPhone, this time the iPhone 5. Again I loved everything about it, but when it was time for another upgrade I had finally outgrown the iPhone.

So which phone to choose?

9 Instagram Photos That Make Me Happy

Taking pictures is something I've always loved to do, even before I had a phone with a camera on, I would buy those throw away Kodak cameras and take tons of pictures. Now who remembers them?

Over the years it's become one of my favourite hobbies too, especially

I'm Thinking Of Christmas Gift Ideas Already!

Every year I always say that I'm going to make lists, and sort all the presents out sooner rather than later. Unfortunately this never actually happens and I'm usually found running around like a lunatic on Christmas Eve trying to grab things for everyone.

This year is going to be different though,

A Sunday Stroll Along The River

On Sunday I decided that instead of being stuck in doors on my day off, I would take my new camera (get excited...post coming soon all about it), out and have a little explore around outside. I was just going to venture to my local park and see what caught my eye, but my boyfriend suggested that I come to work with him.

You see he works in Staines and suggested that I have a stroll along the River Thames,

A Post I Couldn't Find A Name For

Last week I was going to write a catch-up post about how I've been while I had my Youtube Blog takeover, but to be totally honest with you I didn't feel I could. If you've been a regular reader you will know that I usually post every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. My blog is my place I go to, to have a break and let my creativity run wild. But last week I had some terrible family news.

I wasn't going to mention it on here, but I feel that I offer so much of myself on here already I have nothing to fear mentioning this too.

Then I managed to get my hands on another August box from them, (I got it at a little blogging conference I attended, again post coming soon). So I thought it would be the perfect giveaway prize for one of you lovely lot to win.

An App That Every Youtuber Needs

Being a Youtuber and working full time means that sometimes it's hard to get time to sit down and write back to comments on your videos.


Well something I have found that is a really useful tool is this the Youtube Creator Studio App. Lily Pebbles recommended it in her 'What's in my iPhone' video and ever since I downloaded I use it almost daily. It is great for not only replying to comments but it's also great for checking your analytics and video views. I love looking at it the day after I upload my video to see how many people have watched it before I go mad and share my video all over Social Media.

You can also edit the info in the description box, which again is so handy as sometimes I forget to add things when I first upload.
This is something I can't recommend enough for any Youtuber out there. New or Old.

Let me know if you get the app.

Thanks Guys
Love Hayley

p.s my channel is here if you fancy a look.

So This Was A good Idea?! Right!?

Cutting my own hair? Yep that will make a great video?! You know when you have an idea and you think it's the best idea ever. You won't listen to criticism, you won't listen to that tiny voice in the back of your head telling you no. You just go full force and let the idea become reality. Well that is exactly what happened when I did hair related things on my channel.
