About me

About Me

My name is Hayley Warren, I’m 27 years old and currently live in Birmingham in the UK.  I’m a huge Harry Potter fan, a massive bookworm and a very crazy cat lady. I can usually be found in one of the many coffee shops in Birmingham typing away on my MacBook and getting my daily caffeine fix. I love to travel and often get a train or coach to various parts of the country to see my friends. One of my favourite things to do is visit new countries and cities on my own.

About the blog

Strangeness & Charm was created when I was in my second year of an Archaeology degree and wanted somewhere I could go to talk about fashion and beauty. In the six years that my blog has been around, I’ve achieved so many things that I didn’t even know were possible, I’ve had some fantastic opportunities but most importantly, I’ve made some amazing friends.

After being made redundant from yet another boring office job, I decided to give blogging full time a go. I’m currently working on my blog and partaking in other freelance writing projects on a full time basis.

      I do it myself with the L’Oreal Feria box dye in Paprika Power. I top it up with Bleach London’s Tangerine Dream every so often too!
