My First MAC Purchases

Hello and welcome to AlleyHope.

My name is Ali, I’m 29, originally from Edinburgh and now residing in Gloucestershire. I work full time in the creative industries (based in Bristol) and blog as a hobby.

AlleyHope is a reflection of all of my favourite things. The (constantly evolving) line-up of passions includes films; books; crafting and cross stitching; and eating but not cooking. I’ll be blogging about all this and everything in between.

My – If I can pick only one – Favourites:

Film: Jaws
Book: The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
Meal: Tacos and Tequila
Animal: Orca – the hooligans of the ocean!
Place: Edinburgh
Dinosaur: Plesiosaur (i.e. Nessie)
TV Show: Game of Thrones
Smell: Yankee Candles’ Fireside Treats
Make up brand: Urban Decay for life!
Thing to hoard: Stationery, specifically notebooks

Look and Design

I take my pictures using my Olympus E-PM1 or my Samsung Galaxy S5.

My lovely Social Media Icons were a free download provided by the very generous Carrie at CarrieLoves.com


All content on this blog is generated by myself and all opinions are my own. Any items marked with an asterix (*) have been gifted to me or are PR samples. My thoughts on a product remain the same whether I have received it for free or bought it with my own money and this is what you will read here.

I only feature sponsored content if I feel it is suitable for my blog, is written by myself and reflects my own opinion. I am always happy to hear from companies if you feel that my blog would be a good fit for your writing an interview paper.

Thank you for visiting!
