oh, hello!

Hello lovely people!  Thank you for stopping by – I hope you’re having a wonderful time with me here on my lil’ slice of the internet!  You’re probably here on this About Page ’cause you want to know a wee bit more about me, why I created my blog and what you’ll find here – so here it is!  Hopefully you’ll find the answers you’re looking for, but if not please feel free to contact me!

About Stephanie

Hi! I'm Stephanie, a Scottish blogger based in Glasgow. I moved here (from a tiny Scottish island called the Isle of Bute) to study Speech and Language Therapy, fell in love with the city and didn't want to leave!

I believe in honesty, loyalty and trust (I'm a Hufflepuff), so you can be safe in the knowledge that if I'm sharing something with you, it's because I like it and I think you'll like it too.

About the Blog

I initially created this blog as a way of sharing the beauty products I was loving with my friends, as many of them would come to me for recommendations before purchasing anything. I don't want to encourage you to just buy something I've mentioned, I want to help you make an informed decision about whether you want to spend your money on that product.

Over the years, I've gained a few thousand more friends via the interwebs (hi, that's you now) to share my thoughts on all things beauty, fashion and lifestyle with. Welcome to the family!



what you'll find here


Beauty products are my number one passion and what you'll find most of here on the blog. I share product reviews and product roundups on makeup, skincare and haircare to help you make an informed decision about whether you'd like to try a product for yourself.



First things first - I ain't a fashionista, but I do like playing with clothes and accessories. I'm not quite sure how I'd describe my style, but I like to wear clothes that make me feel 'put-together' and would rather err on the side of classic rather than super trendy. I'm still in the phase of trying to figure out my own personal style, so thought I would share my journey with you here! (P.S. If you are good with fashion-y things, please do help a gal out by sharing your photos/advice with me!)



I love reading about how other people live their lives and what works for them - so thought I would share some more personal life things here too. I'm really in to living a more considered and intentional lifestyle at the moment, so I'll hopefully be able to share more of that with you soon. I've struggled with chronic illnesses for over 3 years now, so trying to live as healthily as possible is a huge part of my life.

For now, you can find posts such as 'How To Be A Morning Person' and 'Sunday Habits for a Stress Free Week' - keep an eye out for what's to come!
