Hi, I’m Liv, a twenty-something beauty and lifestyle blogger living on the Isle of Skye in the Highlands of Scotland. I like tattoos, chocolate, decorating, and photography. I live in a caravan with my boyfriend, Dan (who you’ll see mentioned a lot) and our two cats, Lola and Violet.

I’ve run The Static Gypsy since June 2015, and after a few blog posts whining about some guy I found myself writing a beauty and lifestyle blog where I focused on things like making the most of what you have and working on a tight budget. In all my makeup tutorials I use a lot of the same products, for the simple reason that I don’t have the money to buy a product to use only once, and I think most people would agree with me!

I also post a weekly lifestyle article, detailing things like my renovation of my tiny home, and some little tips and hints for how to live in a small space, as well as other lifestyle things. Occasionally I’ll do a photography post on a Wednesday or a blogging tips post or something like that, just to entertain myself as I really love writing and photographing posts like that. Basically there’s a little something for a wide range of interests, and I hope you’ll find something you enjoy here πŸ™‚

I post new features every Wednesday and Sunday at 6pm UK time. Be sure to follow me over on Instagram or Facebook for the latest info on what I’m up to! Click the little Social Media buttons at the top of any of these pages to find me and give me a follow if you fancy it.

If you’re new here, you may be thinking “why the hell is this site called The Static Gypsy?!” The short answer is that I live in a 3 bedroom static caravan and I’ve secretly always wanted to be a gypsy. Also, I adore puns and the name of my blog is not only a play on where I live, but also on the fact that generally speaking, gypsies travel a lot and I’m a total home bird – ‘static’ if you will. See, see? It’s clever right?

So, welcome to my little corner of the Blogiverse, and I hope you love it. If you want to get in touch with me or have any suggestions or comments, leave a comment on any of my posts, or find my details on the ‘Contact‘ page. Happy travelling!





Hi Liv, what a stunning pic of you!!! Had to come and say hello after you left such a lovely comment on my blog πŸ™‚ So nice to meet you – what a gorgeous part of the world you live in! I lived in Scotland (Fife) for 3 years and spent a weekend in Skye, absolutely stunning place with breathtaking scenery!!! <3 Looking forward to keeping up with your posts huni, thanks again for popping over πŸ™‚ Karen xoxo



Thank you so much Karen! I really am so lucky to live here, but it’s nice to get off the island every now and again πŸ™‚ Thanks for the follow back, I’m really enjoying reading Confetti and Curves πŸ™‚ Liv x


You’re so very welcome huni πŸ™‚ Glad you’re enjoying it <3 XXXX


I love your blog name! It makes a lot of sense after reading your about section.

Well, blog content changes, glad that you’re now into cosmetics πŸ˜‰


Thank you, so am I! Not all change is bad after all πŸ˜‰


Hi Liv, I have just come across your blog it’s amazing! I was wondering if you have any advice for starting a new blog x


Ah I’ve only just seen this comment, I’m sorry for my late reply! The only advice I’d give anyone is to write about whatever you want to share. If you don’t love your content then no one else will. Sounds cliche I know but it definitely comes across if you’re not enthusiastic about what you’re creating. Thank you so much for reading πŸ™‚ x

Let me know what you think...
