Hi! I’m Tanya. I’ve been making YouTube videos about beauty, fashion, baking and my life since October 2009 and writing this blog since March 2011. It has been a real journey and sometimes I have to pinch myself when anyone reminds me that I have over 3 million subscribers! I never thought that something that started out as a hobby would become the business that it is today. My viewers/readers mean the world to me, I feel so lucky to have so many wonderful people watching my videos and supporting everything I do.
Other than YouTubing and Blogging, I’m training to be an actress and I also have my own makeup line that I design, Tanya Burr Cosmetics, sold in Superdrug. In January 2015 I had my first book Love, Tanya published by Penguin, which was so surreal and exciting. I’m very proud of it as I poured my heart and soul into it. It’s part autobiographical and part lifestyle guide and very close to my heart. Due to the success of the baking chapter in Love, Tanya I am now working on a recipe book called Tanya Bakes – it won’t be out until Summer 2016, but you can pre-order it now! I recently launched my own campaign called Time For Girls, which is about everyone – irrespective of gender identity – coming together to make our world more equal and more inclusive, as part of my role as an ambassador for The Global Goals.
I love reading, baking, The Vampire Diaries, Harry Potter, spending time with my family, friends and husband, playing piano, documentaries, being outside, acting, fashion, makeup, picnics, bubble baths, old Disney films like Beauty & The Beast and The Little Mermaid, 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
