Who Is Haley Ryan?
Hey there! As the title of this blog suggests, I am Haley Ryan. A grown ass woman in my early thirties, currently living with my husband Matt and our dog Keo in a cute little 1930s house in Staffordshire that we bought in 2011. I come from a Military background and worked as an Operating Department Practitioner in the Royal Air Force for 10 years. Then due to mobility issues with my right hip, I was medically discharged. After not having any idea what I wanted to do, I now work almost full time as a Social Media Manager/ Online Sales Marketer for a mobile phone retailer. Oh, and obviously I like to moonlight as a blogger, freelance writer and occasional singer-songwriter.
In my downtime, you will most likely find me writing or researching blog posts, singing or playing my guitar, snuggled under a blanket either reading a good book or watching a film or hiking out with my boys. Being totally honest though, you are most likely to find me scrolling through endless images on Instagram because I am totally obsessed.
About This Blog
I absolutely adore fashion and as a plus size woman, it is great to see how much things are changing. It’s so good to finally be able to find stylish clothes that fit and actually have some choice in what you wear. For this blog, I want to help others find their personal style, regardless of their size. This blog will feature lots of fashion tips, advice and just general style information, as well as beauty tips, body positivity and I’ll occasionally throw in the odd lifestyle post if I think it will be something you are interested in. After all, we are all complex creatures with lots of different hobbies and likes.
What Camera Do I Use?
I actually take quite a few photos on my Samsung S6 but I use my Canon 350D or 7D for fashion shoots. I take a lot of the shots myself using a small remote trigger but occasionally the images will be credited to my husband who is a very talented amateur photographer.
Sponsoring and Advertising Opportunities
With regards to sponsoring and advertising, I am more than happy to consider anything that will fit in with the general themes of this blog. If you are interested in working with me please feel free to get in touch directly or find out more information / check out my media kit by going to my sponsoring and advertising page.
Why Do I Advertise?
During an average week, I will spend up to 20-30 hours working on my blog alongside a 30 hour a week job and there are a lot of associated costs of running a website, etc. Advertising is a way of bringing in a little bit of income to help keep the blog running, as well as bringing different products and brands to people who may not know about them yet.
This blog does offer various forms of paid advertising but in order to maintain an honest and open relationship with my readers, I will always declare any PR Samples, sponsored posts or endorsements, etc. Please note, my reviews will always be honest and payment will not affect my judgement of the brand in any way. All thoughts and opinions will be my own and I will retain full editorial control of all blog content.
