I've just bought a beauty book. If you knew me growing up as a makeup-less tomboy, you'll know that's the last sort of book I'd ever buy. No, actually, it's more unlikely I'd buy a chick lit, but anyway, I've just bought The Science Bit. by London-based, long established beauty blogger, Hayley Carr.
I met Hayley at the first ever Cosmopolitan Blog Awards, when I was up for the lifestyle category and she the beauty. We spent the morning together drinking the most expensive tea in London Town, and eating Cosmo pastries and scones.
Hayley is a really down to earth blogger, no crap from her, and she takes no crap from brands either. If you any you beauty reviews stripped down to the positives, negatives, how-tos, with no BS, then London Beauty Queen is for you.
Hayley also lets me contribute on occasion, giving my spin on how the naive beauty wannabe finds certain products to use.
If you're a brand, London Beauty Queen can help you too. Hayley owns her own social media advice business.
This week her first ever book has arrived on Kindle, pre-printing. Typically no-nonsense. It's a straightforward Q& A layout means its easy to read in bite size chunks whilst commuting, and very fast to hunt down the questions on topics you need answers to.
Questions like: "Why are facial wipes the worst invention ever?" And " Why Do I need to use face cream anyway?". A handy book for pros and beginners, or to buy your teenage daughter. Available on Kindle now, and publishing 'proper' soon. I wish you great sales and loads of luck, Hayley.
