About me

Hello lovelies,

I’ve finally done it… after years of coercing friends and relatives into unwanted make-overs, I’ve decided to channel my passion for beauty into, hopefully, a more productive outlet in the form of this blog! So, to kick things off, here is a little about me…

My name is Sophie, I’m 27 and I live in Warwickshire with my husband Gareth. By day (and sometimes night) I’m a trainee anaesthetist at a local hospital.  Outside of life in blue scrubs, you can normally find me in my local branch of Space NK, drooling over beauty counters, weighing up my next purchase. When the lady at the till knows your postcode off by heart, you know you have a serious beauty habit. So where did it all begin…

I remember being a little girl and reading The Style magazine that my parents used to get with their Sunday papers. There was a feature each week where a glamorous woman would get asked what her favourite beauty products were. They talked about their five or six must have products with such passion, they clearly knew their own minds and that inspired me to find my own list, just in case The Style magazine came calling…

So, I set out on my journey to find ‘the one’. ‘The one’ mascara or ‘the one’ foundation only to realise how hard it was! If you too are feeling overwhelmed, don’t worry we’ve all been there. From over plucked eyebrows, fake tan disasters and foundation two shades too dark that makes finding a photo for #throwbackthursdays impossible, I’ve done my time.

With millions of products out there all promising you things only to let you down, I realised I needed to be way more selective. I research everything before I buy it now! Anything that costs more then £10, I always sample it too because let’s be honest, being a beauty addict is an expensive hobby to have. I also realised it’s very rare to find ‘the one’ and in reality it’s more like ‘the five’. One foundation can’t get you through every occasion, a girl needs to have options!

So, after a number of years and quite a few hit and miss beauty products later, I finally feel that I’ve found my squad of loyal products I repeatedly buy again and again. Through this blog I will share with you my personal favourites as well as new products that I love, you never know, they might just turn out to be some of yours too!

I would love to hear if any of you try the products and what you think. Likewise, if you have any tips for me, feel free to share! I hope you enjoy reading my blog.

Sophie x
