Hello there, and welcome to my blog! I’m Mandy Jean, I’m 22 years old and I live in Norfolk, UK, although I originate from Essex. I’m 5 ft 3, can chat for Britain, and have two dogs/fur-babies, Maggie May and Minnie Bow.
From a young age, I’ve always been a “geek.” Now don’t get me wrong, I’m your typical pink-loving, fashion-worshipping girly girl. But I can also take down a whole group of super-mutants playing Fallout without breaking a sweat, binge-watch 10 seasons of Supernatural within a week and can happily discuss my preference for DC over Marvel comics for 3 hours straight (this has actually happened, I can assure you.) I’m also one of the biggest twenty-something Disney fans you will ever meet – if you don’t like Disney, then I’m sorry, we can’t be friends (but seriously though, who doesn’t like Disney?!).
When I left high school, I didn’t mess about. By the age of 18, I was a fully qualified, insured, professional make-up artist running my own business. I had a tonne of experience under my belt – I had worked on films, catwalks, photoshoots, theatre productions… You name it, I’d done it. But that’s not all! Other jobs I’ve worked include being a sales assistant at GAME, a conference/banqueting assistant at a high profile hotel, a scare actor for a well-known local Halloween attraction. Aside from my make-up business, I currently work as a Cast Member at Disney Store, and yes – it’s every bit as awesome as it sounds!
My main hobbies include watching movies/tv shows, playing video games, sketching, cosplaying and of course, blogging. All five of these have contributed to me becoming part of much bigger communities both online and IRL, I’ve met so many friends that I wouldn’t have otherwise. I’m just very passionate about being who you are on the inside – and for me, that’s being a magical badass kawaii princess. I hope my blog manages to reflect this well.
