24 Mar Hello
Hi and welcome! I’m Rebecca, a beauty and lifestyle writer and editor. I’ve been in the business far too long and have worked on and for many magazines, websites and brands, but am still as passionate about what I do as when I began my career as a beauty intern on Harpers Bazaar (then called Harpers & Queen) back in the 90’s.
I have been meaning to start my own blog for some time now – I guess I see it as a kind of dumping ground for all the knowledge I’ve gleaned from various sources over the years, and I can’t wait to get started!
So what can you expect? Well what I won’t be doing is posting every five minutes – with the trillions of products available you must be confused enough as it is, that’s why you’re here, right? What I will do is post about stuff that impresses me and that I think is worth your hard-earned cash.
If I don’t like something, I probably won’t write about it. And if I feature a product or service that then turns out to be a bit of a disappointment, I’ll give you my honest feedback. New stuff, not-so-new stuff, and a few twists and turns along the way to keep things interesting.
From makeup to skincare, salon and spa treatments and hair and beauty destinations, I’ll be covering it here. Honest, unbiased advice, insider tips, interesting or useful snippets and hopefully things that you will love as much as I do.
Oh, and one last thing – I don’t just write about beauty and am fortunate to see and experience some great places through my job, from exhibitions to restaurants and overseas destinations. If I go somewhere and I like it, I’ll share it with you too. I hope you enjoy your voyage around the beauty world!
