5 Things To Know About Me

Having gotten my undying love for writing and music off of my chest, I feel further at ease sharing some other joys of my life. So here are 5 to get to know me a little more!

Seeing as the blog post on Monday was a major event in history I thought I'd keep this one brief (...hopefully, only God knows how long I'll actually be sitting here typing away). 

Question one: who am I?
Well howdy there, I'm Delilah Hannahford and I dream of the breakfast I'm going to have the next morning while getting into bed the night before. I'm 18 years young and a Leo, hence the blog title The Resplendent Lioness. I also like to watch movies not necessarily for the story but for the location and the soundtrack. Born and raised in Tasmania, Australia and my dream travel destination right now is Ireland... 'P.S I Love You' quenches that thirst real good... but more on that later.

Question two: why did I make a blog in the first place?
I chose to make a blog so I could express myself on a higher platform and hopefully reach like minded individuals. To remind others about the daily wonders in this world and to showcase that feeling good is a birth right. While I gush over my loves maybe it'll ignite your spark in what you love, long lost or new flames.

Question three: what do I get up to when I'm not writing?
Thanks to Adriene from Yoga With Adriene, I have learnt the most valuable catchphrase ever and that is to 'find what feels good'. This I choose to actively live by with my actions and thoughts. I do tend to swing between hobbies as I'm a jump in the deep end or not at all girl, but some things never change. These includes: pumping iron like Arnold 'you have to shock tha muscle', taking pictures of sights that catch my eye, having deep and meaningfuls with my Mumma, pinning pictures of exotic places on my Pinterest boards, cooking then to only devour seconds later, impromptu living room dance parties, discovering new music and anything to do with the sky has me deeply fascinated.

Question four: how did writing find me?
At 12 I had an epiphany sitting window seat on a plane, I discovered the magic that is songwriting. Instantly I found myself gobbled up by this form of witchcraft wondering how does one write a decent song? On that very plane I started to write lyrics (which I still have but never look at because CRINGE!!! What 12 year old knows about love??) and the rest is history. Now songwriting is as big a part of my life as breathing. Only just recently have I decided to stretch my wings and see what else I can do with words and well, here we are.

Question five: where can I find you on social media?
Well well well, what a splendid question to have asked... I have left links for your hearts desires below.

Ahhh and I still sat here for hours... I can't help myself okay!

Love, Delilah

The Start Of The Rest Of My Life

Welcome to my first ever post on my new blog The Resplendent Lioness!I have been working on many aspects of this blog for over the past week but to finally sit down and write my first is a very lovely feeling.
Only just recently have I recognised that as long as I can write I am deeply satisfied. I still crave intensely many MANY wonders, writing just gives my experience a sense of purpose that other loves just don't. The best way I can describe it is as if  I am the whole universe, writing is the sun, and my many other joys are planets and stars. All are important and make up the whole universe, this is key. Stars and new planets can be discovered but there is only one sun.  The complete source of warmth, bringing light to every part of me.
My desires to venture into the blogging world have only come about recently and suddenly but I believe in divine timing and this could not have entered my life at a more excellent time. I asked for a summer romance and I got handed a blog. My oh…

18 Life Changing Lessons I Learnt In 2018

Here we are again, the end of a book and this time it so happens to be the novel that was 2018. A lot occurred in the past 12 chapters and 365 pages and for all I find peace with and am grateful.
Moments have been filled with pleasure, some with agony, some with sadness, elation, shock, glee, gloom, mild insanity, only to name a few otherwise we'll be here for the whole of 2019 if I try to list all the adjectives I've felt recently. I actually really enjoy watching the pendulum swing every which way asking you ever so politely with a kick up the butt to keep and never stop progressing. So to sum it up my year was filled with a lot of butt kicking.
I used to HATE the thought of new years eve and even birthdays so much that I'd get emotionally and physically distressed about them. It meant that the clock kept ticking and chapters kept ending, a concept my little eleven year old self didn't want to have to accept. Ever. It's only been this year that I've embraced th…

The 10 Albums That Transcended In 2018

Albums and EPs that I listened to non-stop in 2018 and you should listen to too!My favourite 10 releases in 2018 that features artists you will immediately fall in love with.

I spend a decent amount of my time admiring the artistic expression of music. It is something that I hold very close and very, very dear to my heart. Along with writing, music brings the most indescribable and monumental feelings of pure elation and raw electricity.
My favourite genre of music is the kind that leaves me feeling like I just saw through space and time in the matter of minutes and now I know every secret to the universe... so basically I'll go for anything that makes me feel like I'm high.

2018 was a year of some spectacular breakthroughs in music from new artists entering the scene or familiar faces re-inventing what they have to offer. Now, more then ever you're bound to find someone somewhere on the globe making something to cater to your very specific likes. I can't guarantee you…
