I’ve been making YouTube videos about beauty, fashion, travel, baking and all sorts of other life subjects from anything like books I’m reading to my dog, Martha, since October 2009 and writing this blog since March 2011. I never thought when I started out on this journey that I would have as many people coming along on it with me as there are today, but it’s amazing and I love it.
As well as the blogging and youtubing (is that a word?!) I’m an actress. I started training in January 2015 and I’m excited to actually be working on a couple of acting projects this year. It’s definitely the hardest part of my job, but I love it so much and without acting there would just be something missing from my life.
I also have my own makeup line that I design, Tanya Burr Cosmetics, sold in Superdrug stores and online at Feel Unique. In January 2015 I had my first book Love, Tanya published by Penguin. It’s a lifestyle guide, but with personal stories, which makes it very close to my heart. Due to the success of the baking chapter in Love, Tanya I created a recipe book called Tanya Bakes which was published in June 2016. It’s full of all my favourite bakes – ones from my childhood and also some recipes I created whilst on the journey of making the book. Right now, I’m about to release my third book, Tanya’s Christmas, which is a pure celebration of my favourite season. It’s chapters include Getting In The Festive Spirit with ideas of what to do out and in, How To Host The Perfect Christmas Party with not only my canapé recipes, but also hair, makeup and outfit tips. Basically it’s just a guide to how I do Christmas.
I’m an ambassador for ONE Campaign and work closely with them, last year went on a really interesting and educational trip with them to South Africa, which I wrote about here on my blog (you can also see more about it on my YouTube channel).
I love reading, baking, Harry Potter, spending time with my family, friends, dog and husband, playing piano, being outside, getting dressed and putting outfits together, picnics, bubble baths, old Disney films, sunshine, snow and positive people. I can’t think of anything else to tell you about me. If you’re new here – enjoy my blog and my videos! Lots of love, Tanya x
