A bit about me

I am a Brighton-based social media consultant and writer, mother of two teens and author of four books.

You can see some of my journalism here I also work as a media career coach 

This blog has been running for 10 years and has been nominated for many awards in that time. In 2013 I was shortlisted as a finalist in TalkTalk’s Digital Heroes awards for my work with KidsBlogClub. In 2014 I reached the last 16 in the Best Writer at the Brilliance in Blogging Awards (BIBS).

I’m an experienced public speaker and regularly feature in UK and international media (most recently BBC and LBC radio, Daily Telegraph and Psychologies magazines).

Reviews on this blogpaint palette mask

The main thing about this blog is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. The over all theme is Beauty & Healthy Lifestyle, so that can include anything I’m currently geeking about – mainly beauty; 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.
