Hey there! I’m Hayley and I’m a homebody…


Who Am I?

First things first, my name is Hayley. I’m 30 years old and live in Bournemouth, England with my husband, son and four adorable little guinea pigs.

Hayley @ Happily Ever Homebody

Here are some fun(-ish) facts about me:

  • My Myers-Brigg personality type is INFP. Enneagram-wise, I’m a 6w5!
  • Disney parks are my favourite places in the world.
  • My life goals include seeing the Northern lights, writing a novel and having a reading nook…
  • I strongly believe in equality for all – no exceptions!
  • I suffer from endometriosis (a chronic pain/inflammatory disease) as well as generalised and social anxiety.

And here are some of the things that I love:

reading – sitcoms – sleeping – pyjamas – my family – meringues – Disney parks – cute animals – carbohydrates – staying at home – cosy & comfy style – autumn – winter – true-crime podcasts – chocolate – hot drinks in awesome mugs – stationery – Christmas – sweaters – pop-punk music – bookish things – ice cream

Why Happily Ever Homebody?

Happily Ever Homebody grew out of frustration where I was constantly being asked to change. To be more of a do-er than a dreamer. To be an extrovert rather than my usual introverted self.

But the thing is, I like who I am. I actually like being a homebody and/or introvert.

I just want a quiet life filled with happy memories, lots of love and a big stack of books. And I already have those things so why would I want more?

What do you Write about?

Happily Ever Homebody is mainly a book blog though I do also dabble with lifestyle posts. These tend to be about topics like travel, living with a chronic illness, self-care and just generally homebody lifestyle.

My current post frequency is every 4 days. Some weeks there may be more than this and some weeks may be less if I’m having health problems.
