This blog started life as an antidote to the slew of perfect life blogs, relentlessly marching their way across the internet like an army of perfectly labelled matching jars containing home made play-doh.
As my offspring have grown up, and need less hands on attention, the blog has evolved to be mainly about my attempts to find beauty products that work for real people, not make up artists, and that have a fighting chance of making me look even a couple of years younger than I actually am. I am nothing if not demanding. And optimistic.
My love of beauty products and “mucking about on the internet” led to a job in digital media, on a beauty site. I get to talk beauty all day, every day, from the comfort of my armchair, plus fiddle with IT and spreadsheets. Get in.
You can find me on twitter at @debraSHB. I’d love to hear from you.
