I’m a sometime book-blogger in my early mid-thirties who decided that it was time to also write about her other passion – beauty. I’ve always had an interest in ‘products’, as my mother refers to them, and now my collection of cleansers, eyeshadows, and concealers is threatening to take over the Mouse House. I also love to cook and read (obviously), as well as get bossed around by our cat, Marple.

I love: new socks, Midsomer Murders, gin, coffee, chocolate cake, fresh bedding, Oxford commas, and dinosaurs.
I loathe: crocodiles, alligators, clowns, and coriander (the herb of the devil).
