A UK based Beauty & Lifestyle Blog founded in 2017.
♥ The Face Behind the Blog ♥
Hello. I’m Jamey, I am 33 years old and a blessed mommy to 4 children and a mischievous little kitten. We reside in the beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside situated somewhere not far from the beautiful historical city of Cambridge and quaint town of Newmarket. I created my blog as a platform for me to document my thoughts and passions, with the occasional sprinkling of my personal life and beliefs. Blogging is a passion and a hobby for me, therefore I do not pressure on myself to conform to anything, other than what I am. Especially as it is not easy juggling life, work, blogging and 4 children.

I am very passionate about Beauty, especially Skincare and Makeup. I’ms also very fond of wildlife and the outdoors, including animals, nature, and plants. I would consider myself a bit of a romantic with my head in the clouds at times. Nothing beats being lost in my thoughts lying in a wild meadow field, with the sun beaming down and a good book in my hand. My love for animals and nature is the reason I decided to go cruelty-free in 2016, so choosing cruelty-free brands and eco-mindful brands are very important to me.

I have always been a mixture of creative and a geek with a deep desire to always educate myself and learn. As a child, I aspired to be either an archaeologist or a wedding planner. Now I enjoy helping to support others and hope to continue to do so for a long time. I am at a point in my life where I’m on a journey to really understand who I am and why my brain works a little differently to others (being on the spectrum with ADHD and also having BPD). My life has been far from an easy journey, and even though every day can be a struggle, all of my experiences make me unique. Writing has always been something that has relaxed me since a young child and captures my attention (which is rare considering my attention span), which is why I love blogging. However depending on my episodes, sometimes I have no concentration or motivation at all. I am City & Guilds (2008) qualified in beauty and currently studying social studies (along with criminology). I have a penchant for anything French (especially in home decor). Anything woodland-inspired, feminine, sparkly and gold. I’m guessing in a previous life I might have been a magpie? lol.
“Ageing is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been”
In my spare time when I am not blogging I enjoy a tv show or two, usually a good mystery, thriller or documentary that encourages my mind to process things. It’s probably why I have never really been into soaps. My favorite colours are Pink and Green, I love the snow, long countryside walks, cups of hot cocoa on cold evenings and a good book. Yet I also enjoy applying makeup, taking long hot bubble baths and enjoying a face mask or two watching a chick flick movie with my daughters. I am also very passionate about cooking, especially Italian, Asian and South American dishes. I mostly eat vegetarian but do not label myself and love foods with strong flavours that make the mouth water.

I’m just a simple mom, who loves beauty and tries to find beauty in everyone and every thing. I hope you enjoy reading my blog and getting to know me a little along the way. I try my best to write about things I enjoy reading myself and being OCD love writing up long, thorough in-depth reviews. I’m always happy to make new friends, so feel free to come and say hi on Instagram or Twitter, and keep up to date with the world of JL Blogs by subscribing via Bloglovin or my mailing list (which you can find to your left).
