a little bit about me...


Iโ€™m Hermione, a craft-obsessed YouTuber, full-time bunny mamma and self-proclaimed IKEA addict

Iโ€™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 couldnโ€™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 Masterโ€™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 Iโ€™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.
