About Me

Hi there!  My name is Sarah, I live in South East London, England. I work in London in a job which has two job titles,  confusing! The long and the short of it is I organize a lot of stuff and people.  I then warrior away at my keyboard day in and day out. I’ve worked in investment banking, the HQ of Cadbury’s (best job EVER) and now in manufacturing.

While I’ve worked in an office since back in the day, I’ve also run my own beauty business.  I am qualified in all sorts of beauty treatments and I love learning new skills. These days I don’t have time to do that, but I use what I learnt to help me blog and do my own treatments.

I love my blog which I started in 2009, and I write about travel and beauty for anyone that is interested in not getting ripped off by spending money on the ridiculous things magazines and celebrities suggest that you really need, so you can save money and buy things that actually work and save more cash for awesome travels. I try and debunk some of the marketing spiel thrown at you by brands and shops so you know what products and ingredients to look for or to avoid and explain what holiday destinations are like in reality vs the airbrushed pictures you see in travel magazines.

I provide quality but light hearted reviews of hotels, spas, restaurants and attractions in relation to whatever city or country I am visiting, so you can easily see whether it’s the type of place you’ll love, a banging hotel that you must visit and to share my experiences so you can learn from them (unless of course getting mugged in Cambodia is exactly your idea of a bitchin good time). I am not a serious person and try and take fun from and be silly in whatever situation is available. I love having a laugh, puns, sarcasm and being happy.

This is definitely not a blog where I am preaching that I am always right, and I try to write as if I am talking to my best friend, as I hope you will become a friend and chat to me in the comments. I am just your average girl that you see snoozing on the train during her commute rather than putting on her winged eyeliner because frankly, who can be arsed? I love a nap.

Things I love are the gym, skincare, hip hop, zip lining, hiking, gel nails, fake tan, holidays, highlighter, silly banter, Scream Queens, watching YouTube videos, computers, wine, penguins and giraffes. In my free time, I am generally at the gym or on the internet.

If you need to contact me, you can e-mail me on iheartcosmetics1@gmail.com, or leave a comment on one of my blog posts. I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
