About Me

Hello there!

I'm Jo and this is my blog on beauty, books, bargains and it will probably have the odd random post thrown in!

For my day job I work in Finance for an exciting start up company, which does mean that my love of numbers spills over into my homelife and blogging and as you will see from my posts I do love a good bargain :)

I live in North Wales with my husband Jonathan, our son Curtis, our bearded dragon Nexu and our mad dalmatian Henry (Horrid Henry).

My best friend is Vicki - we first bonded over a love of books, shoes and alcohol! She lives just down the road and we have nail polish nights where we try out our new polishes, we also have a Facebook page which you are very welcome to join called All Things Nails.

My friends say I am a chatterbox and they are probably glad that I have a blog as it keeps me quiet!

I love books, make-up, bargains, talking and drinking with my friends, painting my nails, unicorns, Lady Gaga, bird print and the colour pink.

Everything on my blog is my opinion, I'm by no means an expert I just like to share my thoughts and I hope you like reading them.  If I am sent a PR sample I will make this clear in the post - being sent a free sample however does not mean that I will like the product! The review will be honest and impartial.

Thank you for reading my blog, I hope you enjoy my ramblings and I love to read your comments.
