a little bit about me...


I’m Hermione, a craft-obsessed YouTuber, full-time bunny mamma and self-proclaimed IKEA addict

I’ve spent the last few years crafting my way through life, and filming my creations for YouTube. What began as a passion project recently became my full-time gig and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I love filming, crafting and editing, but most of all I love working from home in my pjs drinking coffee.

I recently just completed my Master’s in Digital Marketing, which was a wild ride but well worth it. I'm passionate about branding identity and small businesses, and I hope to use this in the future to help other entrepreneurs grow their social media presence and inspire others.

When I’m not sat behind the screen of my laptop, you can find in my local charity shops picking up bargains. I love a good bargain. I strongly believe in creating a personal space with a mixture of old an new, theres not much that a can of chalk paint can't fix. 

Aside from thrift shopping, I love travel. I spent the summers of 2014 and 2015 working in a waterpark in Virginia, USA. This connected my with some of the best friends I've ever made and my boyfriend of over 3 years, Ben. Ben and I love to travel around Europe, I love seeing new things, learning about different cultures and eating all the good food. Combined between the two of us, we've collected a pretty big stash of fridge magnets from all the places we've been.
