Meet The Bloggers

This 27 year old mother-of-two, Laura, blogs mainly about her love for movies. With recommendations, personal favourites, worsts and reviews. Still a fresh blog, she is also set to include other features such as the occasional fashion post, along with beauty, fitness and family life.

My name’s Carly and I’m an Illustrator based in Sheffield, UK. I have a love for all things cute and adorable and I try to reflect this in my illustrations. I mainly work digitally these days as I love the vibrant colours that can be achieved through Photoshop, and I just find it so much more fun to experiment with my style in this medium. I’m always available for commissions, and I've even just started selling necklaces based on my artwork! My blog is filled with cute and quirky characters, so if that’s your thing then please stop by!

Forty Percent Fringe : Sixty Percent Face is a UK life and style blog featuring fashion & beauty, food, art & design, photography, travel and current inspirations as well as recipes, craft tutorials and DIY how-tos.

I only started writing my blog three weeks ago because after reading hundreds of blogs over the past several months. I was shocked to find so few written by anyone over the age of 40! So, I decided to write my own. I'm 52, but feel 29, and the world of beauty blogging isn't always relevant for me. I want to see how make up looks on women with lines sometimes, not on perfect smooth faces. Not to say I don't want to appeal to younger readers, because I do. Many of my posts will be relevant to anyone. But when I review make up I will make a point of saying how it works on older skin. 
As the name of my blog implies, I also write about bargains. If I get a good deal, or buy a sale haul, that will be in my blog, because let's face it, not everyone can buy Dior, Chanel or MAC make up. As part of the thrifty theme of my blog I will be holding lots of giveaways, to help those, like me, who don't have mountains of disposable cash to win some lovely things to make them smile. I had decided from day one of writing my blog that I would hold a givaway when I hit one hundred followers and honestly I expected it to take 6 to 12 months, but within 10 days or so I reached my target and so I am now in the middle of my first giveaway, exciting stuff!

My blog is mostly beauty related with a mixture of reviews of make-up, hair and skincare products, plus wish lists, NOTD and FOTD posts. I also like to throw in the odd baking, lifestyle or fashion post every now and again too!

Makeup By Lauren Marie is a blog run by a makeup artist that offer easy to achieve tutorials with step by step videos. There is also reviews on all the latest beauty products and of course the odd giveaway.

Hey I’m Tracy from Fantastic, Fun, Fashion. I have always had an obsession with fashion thanks to Cher Horowitz (Clueless), it started with scrap booking my favourite outfits from magazines then to a shopping addiction and finally blogging. I love the nicer things in life and I get excited by designer products but at the end of the day I am a mum first so my outfits need to be practical and reasonably priced but that doesn't mean I can’t be stylish and fabulous at the same time.

PYT is a fashion , beauty and lifestyle blog. I love to review products and post my outfits. I love photography! I take photos of everything mostly my cats! I love Cath Kidston and pretty shabby chic things so my blog is very floral and cute.
