About

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 (I link to the product page with the full ingredient list in all of my posts) and read more widely about the skincare I discuss to get a range of opinions! 

If you'd like to know more about me, my thoughts on beauty topics, why I started this blog, my journey and my approach to blogging then check out the below posts:
