About

I'm Amanda. I'm a 20-something living in the UK with a passion for writing and any form of creativity and self-expression. In need of a new outlet after experiencing trauma in 2014, I began my own blog and started to discuss my obsession with matte lipsticks and the endless ways to wear Converse.

After a lot of rebranding, Amanda Jayne was born in 2015 and has now grown into my little corner of the internet where I'll still talk about my love of beauty and style, but I'll also tell you about the best of 80's music; the books you need in your life; the uphill struggle that is my mental health; and my love of collecting tattoos.

Other things I enjoy in life: cats, horror (especially gameplay), pizza, memes, Pokémon, true crime and Dr Pepper. I'd say I'm an optimistic pessimist.

BLOGGING FAQS


WHAT CAMERA DO YOU USE FOR PHOTOS/FILMING?
I use both the Canon 1200D and the Sony A5000. I also use my phone camera (HTC U11).

WHAT DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS WITH?
I use Ribbet and Picasa. You can read all about my favourite editors here and about my 2016 photo editing process here. Although my editing process post features PicMonkey, Ribbet is almost identical to PM and has all the same features, so the process is the same.

WHAT TOPICS DO YOU COVER?
Mostly beauty and lifestyle (creative hobbies to mental health, plus loads of other stuff!), with a bit of fashion.

I also now run a True Crime YouTube channel!

WHO MADE YOUR BANNER?
The lovely Kelly Lianne worked with my idea and made it into a reality - and she did an amazing job! I can't recommend her enough. She also created my Little Jayne Doe channel art.
