WE NEED TO TALK...


This post has been a long time coming for me... but It's about time I sat down and gave it some thought. I'm having one of those moments when all I want to do is sit with my laptop, candle on, in my room and just write. I feel like lately on my blog I haven't been updating you all that much on how hectic things have been for me. If you've been following my social media you would have seen snippets of this stressyness... but I just to want to address it.

I'm 19 and a lot of things have been changing in my life recently. It's strange because it feels suddenly like I need to start writing my life, my journey and the pressure is unreal. All I want is to be happy and be able to deal with big changes in my life. 


I moved to London. That's a thing.
I was worried that the country bumpkin I am I would freak out... and I did. Momentarily. I got agitated, anxious, stressed out and I cried. But I am so ridiculously happy and grateful to be here. I've met a few gems who I already adore. It's so bizarre meeting people and feeling like you've known them for months; or even years. They've, widely speaking, helped me to deal with this huge move.

Every single post I write is a little different, likewise with videos. And I'm not 100% happy with my content at the minute. I feel like I need to share more of me with you all, as I've not been honest all the time. I guess that will come with time. You may be thinking, Hannah why the hell are you rambling on about crap, but I have seen who I want to be and every day I feel like I'm changing.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm changing and my website and youtube is going to as well. You may have noticed a lack of uploading lately, for that I apologise. I've not been in the best head space to write blog posts/create content and I didn't want to be false, or upload anything I wasn't happy with. Thank you for everyone who is understanding over this, and I hope you enjoy my blog posts in the holiday season. I definitely need to christmas my blog up! 

Don't feel like you have to comment on this post, but I would appreciate if you headed over to my twitter @hanjanewilliams and gave me some morale support! 

I've got this... Maybe.






Lots of love,

UNI ROOM TOUR!

Hello pretty people of the Internet.
As most of you lovely people will already know, I've moved to London for university (okay we get it Han stop going on about it). But I thought a fun thing to do was to do a room tour, pictures and a video, so that you could all pry into how I decorated my Uni Room! 







* My 'H A N N A H' lights are an obvious win for me. Who doesn't want to see their name up in lights? Something about them just makes me smile so much, and I love it when objects have that ability. 

You can get your own letters from Up In Lights :) http://www.up-in-lights.co.uk and ONLY £10.99 a letter, which is such a good price for such sturdy lights! (side note they're battery powered)






Without a doubt my favourite section of my bedroom. The plant pot is from Ikea, and the cacti is from Homebase. If you're after some cute small plants that aren't going to break your budget, home base is a great call. 

The New York car plate with 'Hannah' on it, is of course from New York. My dad bought it for me and it was a present on christmas day in NY. (Christmas is cominggggg).

The candle is from wilko and smells like beautiful orange groves literally. It's a very autumnal scent, but I'll be honest I bought it because I had ran out of candles. I'd really like some winter scent recommendations as I'd love to purchase a new candle!

On the right you can see my baby which is my pastel yellow fujifilm instax mini. The photographs in the frame to the left of it were taken on it. This was sent to me by Fujifilm and If I'm honest I haven't used it as much as I would have liked to. I feel like I need to go on an expedition around London taking photos on it then just upload a blogpost on all of them... Is that too indie... 





*COUGH* TROYE SIVAN TICKETS *COUGH*

Hidden behind the jar that usually contains sweets, you can spot my business cards. 






The fairy lights are from primark, primark homeware is an amazing store to explore for some well priced cute pieces! 








^ Here you can see my proudest achievement. I know that It's kind of sad that I receive self-validation from a piece of paper with 'Grade 8' written on it, but truth be told I know how hard I worked to get to that point of expertise... and I'm so stupidly proud of myself for striving for it! 

The plague is from one of my best friends Emma, It says 'Friends are like stars, you can't always see them, but they're always there' and It's from my favourite independent retailer Lisa Angel. Such a cute birthday present, especially seeing as she lives in Norfolk whilst i'm in London! 

The little green clock is from Tiger, in Bristol. The Stone box was a present from when I was younger.  & to the left is the Jelly Bean 'Bean Boozled' Challenge. 



If you're moving away from home something I would definitely suggest is have photographs everywhere. I love to see the people in my room smiling back at me that I know have got me to where I am today. I have such amazing people in my life from Norfolk, who I miss every single day. 


This beautiful storage contraption drove my Dad barmy. He couldn't believe that I wanted to bring a streamline chest of draws to uni, but I am SO glad I did. These draws are the 'Alex' from Ikea and cost £90. Within them I store make up/beauty products as well as clothes. (Imagine taking this up a list to a high floor of a university halls... hahaha sorry Dad! The London Stickers on it are from Paperchase. 



Here you can see my more practical/academic shelf. To the right are books from my course, where as to my left are an array of wonders. The most obvious one you see is my secret garden adult colouring in book, which I have talked about before and ADORE. Behind that I have an tonnes of sheet music and lyric sheets (I have a keyboard under my bed). 



This mug has a story behind it I'll probably never tell this website. But I like the fact that it displays a good message (excuse the pun) and It reminds myself everyday to try and be a better Han. This mug is, of course, from my favourite home ware spot Wilko. The 'Bee Happy' fabric underneath is from a present that 3 of my friends got me for my birthday from Lush. 


The softest blanket you will ever touch. Primark. BUY IT FROM PRIMARK! 


Probably my best room investment. £4 from wilko, your friends can use it to deface when they're bored/tipsy, or you can use it for revision/food list purposes. TOP TIP: I bought the sticky hook in a pack from wilko.


OH I NEED TO STOP SHOWING YOU THING FROM WILKO BUT HOW CUTE IS MY LITTLE HEDGEHOG! 


Bought up in Scotland when I was is year 8 maybe? This cute little contraption sits fondly on my window sill, it used to have hooks on it... they have magically disappeared. 









Lastly what is a room tour without an obligatory pyjama photo shoot? How awesome are these Elsa themed pyjamas. They're also so comfortable and perfect for the winter. I'm such a huge fan of South Beach official and I really recommend heading over to their website for some super comfortable new pyjamas. Everyone knows you need to treat yourself to some new PJ's before christmas! 

Elsa 'Snow Way' 





Hope you all enjoyed seeing my London room! I didn't show you the bathroom because I feel thats a bit too intrusive. 

ALSO GIVE THIS VIDEO A WATCH! :) 





Lots of love,
