Welcome you Beauty Addicts! 🙂
I’m Nicole and I’m your typical everyday beauty addict. I’m not a makeup artist but I love makeup and I’ve tried almost everything out there, from drugstore to high-end.
This blog is meant to be a resource for women on all budgets, high or low and I will always post honest reviews that you can trust. Anything I would recommend to a friend or family member, I’ll pass along to you and if something doesn’t live up to it’s claims, I’ll be sure to let you know!
A Little About Me
I grew up just outside Manchester and worked as a buyer for a major London department store for 5 years, and then in Operations at Boots for 4 years until I became a stay-at-home Mom when my son Lucas was born in June of 2014. I married my husband Chris in June of 2011. He’s a software engineer and is also a talented composer (though he doesn’t have much time for it these days).
I now live just outside of London’s M25 in a small town that I absolutely love, which and is perfect for raising a family. It’s also great to still be close enough to London to go to the occasional West End show, visit the museums, or my favorite, go shopping on the Kings Road!
I initially started a blog in 2013 under the name Nicole’s Beauty Blog, and it offered readers in-depth reviews of mostly drugstore beauty products. Over the past few years, I’ve found that most women love the thrill of both a splurge and a bargain, so while I still blog about drugstore products, I also make sure to cover the hottest, most talked-about makeup, skincare and hair products at all price-points.
