Harry Potter Lifestyle

Welcome Back To TheDeeWhoLived

Welcome back you lovely lot! I bet you weren’t expecting to see me blogging again, did you? In all honesty, neither did I, but I thought I’d come back to my roots and try to start from the very beginning! It’s been nearly 2 years since I last wrote a proper blog post for TheDeeWhoLived and I’ve missed it! I’m hoping that I’ll be able to post here while I carry on my little battle with mental health.

If you’ve never met me before then, where have you been?! My name is Daisy, I’m 30 and I have been a Harry Potter fan since I was 10 so yeah…I’m old! Haha! I started a fandom and mental blog around 4 years ago but, due to life being rather mean, that disappeared. I started vlogging on Youtube and have a channel ‘TheDeeWhoLived‘…I know, I’m original, right?

I feel more comfortable blogging than vlogging at the minute, but I really want to be able to combine both of them to make one epic Potter party! What can you expect from me? Lots of Potter talk! I can never chat about Harry Potter enough! I love it! As you also saw, I’m going to be chatting about mental health too. It’s a big part of my life (even though I wish it wasn’t) and I want to be here for those who can’t speak for themselves.

I’d love to know what you guys would love to see on here! You know I love a good nerdy discussion in the comments so don’t be afraid to leave me one for me to reply back to. Yeah…I do leave some long replies sometimes so be prepared for a novel! Haha!

I’ve got a few posts planned so expect them to pop up in the upcoming days!

Can’t wait to chat with you guys on here again!
