I’ve finally decided to throw my lot in with the cool kids by starting my own beauty-ish blog, you know, pretty much like everyone else.
A little about me: I am a plus size 30-something makeup and beauty subscription box obsessive living in the UK, fluent in both English and sarcasm-of which there will be plenty (not to mention the odd cuss word) in my posts.
My personal style has been described as that of a preschool kid’s TV presenter-make of that what you will-with unnatural coloured hair and an unhealthy interest in clashing prints and bright, bold colours. I think that makeup and beauty should be fun first and foremost, and I am going to try to bring that to my posts, along with a hefty dose of straight talking. If I love it I’ll tell the world, but if I’m not impressed, everyone will hear exactly why that is too!
In terms of the sort of content you will find here, I get a lot of beauty boxes and will try to get to my reviews/unboxings on the same day that they arrive, but aside from that, expect my posts to be erratic, varied and kinda sweary, but beyond that, it’s anyone’s guess.
My work gig is that of freelance writer/journalist, and having said for the longest time that I ain’t writing shit for free, I have finally changed my mind-not least because otherwise, I was in danger of turning one of my ongoing gigs with a very loose brief into my own personal product review forum, and there was only so long they were going to tolerate that for!
So, welcome and enjoy the ride.
