The Real Life Thing
My name is Jess, and I live and work in glorious Yorkshire. I share a home with my wonderful husband Dan, a beautiful chihuahua named Buffy, and all our various toys and collections. My wardrobe consists almost entirely of black, and my life is full of skulls, bats, and occult fuckery. I have a literal PhD in memes and feminist rage, and am entirely fed up with what the internet has become.
glitterbat.net was purchased in August 2004 and has been used as a document, to prove that I was here… to prove I was at all…
So yeah. Pixel art, Blythe dolls, hosting friends, tinkering with code, documenting life, general Internet mucking around… I stopped hand cranking static content and initially made the switch to blogging/WordPress around 2006 and have been using it since. You’ll find me here emptying my head on all manner of things – lifestyle, beauty, travel, and of course my dolls and toys. If someone reads and enjoys, finds something useful, or connects with me that’s a massive bonus.
During my PhD I spent a lot of time distracting myself by writing about products and experiences on this blog, when I probably should have been concentrating on my thesis… This meant that, sometimes, people would get in touch to ask me to review or feature a particular product or service. I totally did this for a while, and then fucked it all off because my real work comes first and I mean… how many ‘free’ lipglosses do you really need? However, I want to say that this has always been made explicitly clear in relevant posts. I’m not about to lie to you, so all opinions presented are 100% honest and 100% my own.
I’m far too Yorkshire to “piss up your leg and try to tell you it’s raining”, as my dad would say.
