Reviews on this blog

The theme of this blog is Beauty & Healthy Lifestyle, so that can include anything I’m currently geeking about – beauty (especially skincare and beauty products for the over 40s); gadgets and travel. If I can crowbar in a Doctor Who reference then so much the better.

In my spare time I like making cakes and going to the gym because I ate too much cake. I’m a little bit obsessed with Korean beauty products so you will see a lot of the weird skincare I’ve acquired from around the world.

Anything I write about is covered honestly and truthfully with an independent opinion. Reviews on my blog are a mixture of things I’ve bought or experienced, and things I’ve been sent free of charge for the purposes of review.
