The Girl behind the Blog

Hi lovelies and thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm Rachael, I'm 27 and I live near Reading in the UK with my gorgeous boyfriend Andy. By day I'm an HR Manager. By night I blog (obsessively!) and dream of one day doing something far more creative than the 9 to 5.

After about a year of stealth blog-stalking I decided to get involved with one of my own. My love of beauty products started at the age of about 11 when I saved up my pocket money for what felt like forever to buy my first ever item of make-up (a Rimmel pale pink frosted lippie and matching nail polish in case you're wondering!) Looking back I know it looked hideous on but I loved it to death...the obsession was fuelled and remains to this day.

As you'll see from my posts I'm definitely a drugstore kind of girl when it comes to my beauty buys. That's not to say you won't see the odd high-end product popping up on my blog but I don't believe that expensive always equals better. I am a marketing department's dream though - if there's a new product out then I will have to try it. One of the many things I love about the blogging community is hearing other blogger's reviews on  products, which is helping me not to dive in head purse first at the sight of a 'New' label!

Allthingsbloggedandbeautiful is basically an outlet for my personal thoughts on everything beauty related (from make-up and toiletries, to clothes, jewellery and even people and places!). I hope you enjoy my ramblings & don't forget to follow if you like what you've read :)
