Welcome to my new space!
As February rolled on by I made a decision that I have been debating for a while now, time for a relaunch! I have debated the pros and cons since last year and decided that it was time to commit, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to explain to you guys why I made the change and who I am.
Those of you who have followed me on any of my platforms will know I’ve been around a bit, but I started all my platforms at different times. Firstly I began youtube, then created my instagram, a while after that I started to blog and use twitter. I love using all the social media platforms I use but they never felt coherent, yes, they all have the same name but there was not much else that felt consistent. Starting over means I get to relaunch everything at the same time and feel they are all intertwined and I am hoping that will motivate me to stay on top of regular posts on all my platforms.
I have started to see my outreach grow, which I am so grateful for but I feel with that I need to be putting in more of an effort in my content, so this is kind of a, Ok lets stop half arseing your way through and invest some time and energy into this. All my videos and blogging started out as fun, it still is fun and I love it but I often think about where this would go if I committed myself to it. So here I am committing.
My name started to irritate me, like Fat Fashion Films is all well and good but its also very rare these days that I purely talk about fashion. What I do talk about is, well, everything. So I decided to make a new name based on what I actually do a lot, which is talk.
To be honest, I am not only having a fresh start in the blogosphere, I’m having one personally as well. The past six months have been really strange ones, and not in a fun way, so I decided what better than pretending it never happened and coming back stronger? Social Media has become a massive part of my life, like it has for most people my age, so I had to include that in my cliched new beginnings commitments.
Who am I?
Well, if I knew that I’d save a lot of money on therapy!
I’m joking, but whatever the context that question is used in it always feels like a climax moment in some philosophical film.
Who I am is a creative type. I did a degree in performing arts, got a job and then became desperate for a creative outlet, which is where my youtube channel came in. Then I created all the things to go with it. I work in residential care full time. I am not paid for the online work I do. Which means I post when I want to about things that interest me. Those things can be anything and I’m hoping for more variety in my posts. I write a lot about hauls and beauty, I post music every so often and until recently I ran a mental health blog which I am now combining into this one. Things I hope to introduce throughout this year are reviews based around arts, general lifestyle posts and travel, again coming back to needing to change my user names, as fashion wasn’t cutting it anymore!
So, to kick things off and reintroduce myself, heres a little bloggers get to know me tag!
- Are you named after anyone?
My first name, Naomi is from the bible. It was specifically chosen as a biblical name because my parents are religious. My second name is Kathleen, after my great grandma, I never met her so I can’t tell you if thats a compliment or not.
- Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Yes, way to much, I often have to tell people if I’m being serious or not because no one can tell.
- What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
- Do you have any special talents?
I can sing and play guitar, I can also pop my hip in and out of its socket, but only my left one, the same with my thumb.
- Do you have any siblings?
There are loads of us! I am the oldest of 6, I have three brothers aged 25, 22 and 20 and two sisters aged 12 and 10.
- Who was your first best friend?
My first best friend was called Melanie, we were friends from play school, so I guess 2 or 3 and we are still friends now, although don’t get to see each other much.
- What was your favorite/worst subject in High School?
Mmmmm my favorite subject was Sociology but we didn’t start that until year 10, before that it was probably art, I actually really enjoyed maths because I got to sit next to one of my favorite people and piss around the whole time. Somehow I still got a B. My worst subject was probably science, in particular chemistry I just found it really dull and never understood it.
- Who are some of your favorite influencers?
I love so many, the first ones that sparked my interest years ago were Tanya Burr and Zoella so I still kind off feel a loyalty to them. The ones I never miss a video from are Just Jodes, Jenna Marbles and Grace Helbig.
- What fictional place would you most like to go?
- What job do you think you’d be really good at?
I actually thing I’d be amazing in sales, I can sell things and bullshit easily haha. I’d hate actually doing it though.
- Are you usually early or late?
I normally arrive early then wait in my car until I’m exactly on time because the whole arriving places thing gets me paranoid.
- Who’s your go to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?
Frank Turner, hes been my favorite artist since I was about 15.
- What have you only recently formed an opinion about?
Feminism, I grew up in a really traditional and religious environment and loved it and believed everything I was told. I believed traditional female roles were the way to go and its only in the past couple of years that I’ve thought about what I really thing about it. Safe to say present Naomi hates past Naomi.
- What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?
In relation to the above, the pros and cons of religious involvement.
- What’s the best thing that happened to you last week?
I got offered an audition for an agency.
- What’s the best way to start the day?
Grapefruit, coffee and an arrow word.
- What are you most likely to become famous for?
In a dream world i’d say singing, in reality doing something stupid and ending up in a metro Facebook article.
- What Music artist have you only recently discovered but love?
Will Varley. I’d heard the name so much but never actually listened, then it played on one of my youtube automated playlists and well, I’m in love.
- What do you spend the most time thinking about?
Aesthetics, my own, social medias, my room, my organisation, how can everything just look pretty?
- What are you most looking forward to in the next month?
This relaunch, obvs!
