ABOUT ME




Welcome to my Beauty Blog….It’s so lovely to see, you!





Many people have asked me how this beauty blog began. This Particular Blog began just before I hit the big 40 in 2014. Have you ever had those moments when you buy something and keep if for “a special occasion”? A beauty product, skincare, make-up? It just looks so beautiful you don’t want to use it? Or you feel you don’t deserve something that nice, or you are just baffled by the science, colour, and skincare choice that you don’t know how to use it? Well one day, 5 years ago I had a wake up call, a big wake up call. One of THOSE wake up calls where you find yourself fighting for your life, thankful for every new day, every new moment, every breath.

Sounds dramatic? Well it was, and it is. I have a very rare, incurable illness, but in those moments of change, months of re-evaluation and adjustment, I realised I had so much I still wanted to do and achieve. After 6 months of being, looking and feeling really sick, I realised that (along with making some very important, deep, life changing decisions) I deserved the pretty “things” that I never used.

Being a busy wife, mother to two gorgeous children and a dog, I never really took the time to use the beautiful products, open the new face cream, and wear the new perfume. It always looked too pretty to use or was saved for “another day”. I was stuck in a make up and skincare rut, using the same products all the time.  I was so busy and so focused on getting things done and looking after other people that suddenly, the things I loved and were a part of me, kind of got forgotten.

I decided I had to live every day as if it was special, take those photos, spend every moment with my children, friends, family, those I love, wear those clothes saved for best, USE THAT MAKE UP! Take care of myself more, because I deserved it and our time is so precious.

With my love of writing, my obsession with make-up, years and years spent reading and learning from every make-up book published, a background in Finance City Trading, PR and Social media - I knew that I had the skills to share this, my true pleasure, my passion, with you. No matter what age you are, how busy you are,  enjoy your products, treat yourself, make yourself count, let’s look after ourselves, every, single, day.

I may be 42 but Beauty does not have an “age” our only limitations are our imagination! If I want to wear sparkly glitter eyeshadow, I will and I do….and I will share it with you. I promise to be honest in my reviews and my product opinions. I will review, use and photograph products sent to me and also products I buy myself. Great skincare and make up should not be a secret, let’s all embrace it, after all we are all going to age right?  Join in with me, leave me comments as I love to hear what you think, let’s all share our hints, tips and love of make-up, skincare and fragrance! 

I really hope you will enjoy reading about the skincare, beauty, make up and lifestyle products featured. You will notice many recognisable brands and some new and upcoming brands too. I will share with you lots of brand new products and launches and many of my favourites that you may not have already come across. I will trial skincare products and wear make-upon your behalf and post honest reviews and photographs on these. I may be 42 but Im in my prime and love great skincare and make-up. I admit to needing all the help I can when I have my off days, unwell days, or “one of those” days. However, when I have my “out on the town” “go get 'em” days…I sure do like to glam up!!

 I’ve got Back to Me so let’s get  Back To You… Beauty!

  4. I have followed your blog for a while now and follow on FB and instagram. Not only do I enjoy all the beauty tips etc but also the little snippets of your life, getting soaked on the school run (I've been there and will be again this week if the forecast is to be believed!) etc. I struggle from time to time to not feel guilty about having time to me but it's comforting to read your blogs and feel a part of something real! Thank you, you're fab. Lots of love, Anna xxx
