This year has been one full of change, full of stepping out of my comfort zone and full of saying 'wow, where did the time go?' I thought I would take a look back at 2018 and see just where that time went!! Blogging The first quarter of the year was super busy for me, … Continue reading 2018 – A year in Review

22nd November - a very early and massively surreal start to the day with a 4am alarm ready to get up and ready, drop our cases at the airport, head through security and into Duty Free. I am an anxious flyer without a doubt and that anxiety starts before security. There's no reason for it, … Continue reading New York City 2018 – Day 1

I have to say, it seems a bit surreal that I've set up as a Makeup Artist. Going back to last year and making the decision to stop what I was doing and change my career direction, it seems strange to have my own website, a new instagram, facebook page and more recently...business cards!
