About Me/Blog

Hi Everyone,

I love all things beauty. Just in case you never noticed!

Blog History.

I started my blog in 2012 for a couple of reasons. First being that I wanted to give people balanced, fair and accurate reviews on the products i purchase.

The second reason; its a great hobby that I love doing.

My blog name came from my love of Chanel and the single cream eyeshadow they released, Mirifique, (Absolute). Beauty for obvious reasons.

The first ever picture i published on my blog was that of Iggy Pop in a Dior dress with a Dior handbag. It became the background of my blog. It was also a talking point and quite unique.

What that photo represents to me is, maintaining a sense of humour throughout and also that beauty doesn’t have to have an age limit.

I have kept the photo on my blog to serve as a logo of sorts.

Reason for Self Hosting. 

I decided to self host this year because i basically ran out of space on the free site.

I thought self hosting would be a nighmare to set up by myself. Not true! It was quite easy. I could kick myself for not doing this before.

New Changes to my Blog 2018+ 

Because i have been posting for almost 6 years now, some of my previous posts had become dated and it was time to have a cull on my site. As heartbreaking as that was to do, it needed to be done. Part of my new Blog strategy is about keeping topics fresh and relevant.

The differences that I will be making to this site in addition to my usual beauty reviews of course is; i will be concentrating more on age related beauty because i am buying with my age in mind more often. I will also be including my hobbies and general interests too.

Anyway, enough waffling on. Have fun on my site. Comment, follow and subscribe and feel free to contact me anytime.
