Hi I'm Jasmine, a 26 year-old commercial insurance underwriter who studied at the University of Birmingham, where I read Philosophy and Theology. I am from Manchester but live in Birmingham.

I like to blog about beauty for all budgets, with some lifestyle content and even do the occasional fashion post!

I spend far too much money on these things but for me it's a hobby; some people like Star Wars Memorabilia, some people collect stamps, my thing just happens to be beauty! I'm a Ravenclaw (though apparently have some Slytherin tendencies...), a bit of a pop culture nerd, an avid reader and an aspiring writer, which are interests I share here sometimes.

My blog isn't a tutorial site; I like to think of it as sitting down with a coffee and our makeup bags and just chatting about beauty. Hopefully you get the same feeling when you read this blog. I'm also not a dermatologist (obviously; I'm an underwriter...) just an enthusiast sharing what works for me and products I enjoy - be sure to do your own research into ingredients and read more widely about the skincare I discuss!

  7. Hi Jasmine!
    My name is Michelle and I came across your blog post on summer-to-autumn makeup, which I loved (I also just love your blog in general). Thanks for uploading your blog post, good makeup tips are so hard to find sometimes! I shared it on Pvblc (It’s pronounced “public”), a new search engine, and categorized it as “Beauty Products” and “Fall” in the Beauty category so it’s easier for other people to find too. I put the link for it on the bottom in case you wanted to see it.
    Btw, if you want to add content as well, you can easily do that. I’ll happily make you a verified curator so you can freely add your Blog posts, reviews and whatever you want. You can even make a page just of your content!
    If you need any help whatsoever, contact me here. I’ll be checking out more of your blog posts this week, so, again, thanks a lot!

    BTW, I also posted it to PVBLC’s Beauty page on Facebook-
