2014. The People.

My year started off badly, then went stratospherically UP. Thank you to everyone who came to an event, queued up, snapped me in a toilet (I know), wrote in for advice, watched my first foray in to the land of YouTube, read this blog and basically supported me endlessly. Without whom etc etc...

Thank you to the brands and retailers that supported me and hired me...!

And a special mention to my blogging friends, who've become best mates, especially Ruth, for dragging me into 2014 and YouTube and who I love more than carbohydrates. Anna, Lily, Zoe, Louise, Anna Saccone and everyone at Team Gleam. Sali for being generous enough to include me on her brilliantly successful ride in 2014 and all the wonderful PR's that are all too frequently bashed and too often under-appreciated.

And to end, if you are thinking of starting a blog and are procrastinating. Just do it. It's the most fun I've had in my working life and I've met lifelong friends, had amazing experiences and am a better person for it. Just. Do. It.

Music - Zero 7. In the Waiting Line


  1. Thanks for all your help and advice Caroline. You've changed my skin! (No joke) Katie x

  2. Thank you for continuing to write your brilliant blog. It has inspired me so much and saved me when I hit 30 and my skin decided to have a complete meltdown. I had just started my blog when I started reading yours religiously and it has most definitely pushed me to continue with it. I feel like 2014 was the year I really started paying attention to the ingredients in my skincare, what I used when and with what other products and generally empowering myself with skincare knowledge. Thanks for that Caroline, truly.

  3. I'd like to thank you - for your no nonsense advice, your no bullshit delivery & the hundreds of laugh out loud moments!
    It's also so lovely to see a real community & friendship between you beauty bloggers. I can imagine it could be a very lonely & bitchy world but you seem to have a real genuine affection & support for each other

  4. Thank you Caroline. You have changed my life I am so glad I stumbled across your blog. Your cheat sheets and recommendations have changed my skin so much and I can't thank you enough. I hope one day I will get to thank you in person, you truly are a saviour. Thanks again x

  5. What is the name of the artist and song name? It is wonderful!!

    1. It's "In the Waiting Line" by Zero 7.

      So great...

    2. It's Zero 7 - In the Waiting Line. Just buy the album. It's brilliant.

  6. Very nice clip. Wish you and your family all the best for 2015.
    and maybe an event/ consultations in Paris?

  7. I totally agree on starting a blog. You meet so many gorgeous and helpful people on the way! But if I ever get to say I love someone more than Carbohydrates... Thats a big commitment.

  8. Caroline, thank you. You are a beautiful and very generous lady for sharing so much with us. A big ask bearing in mind your work load, but it would be simply marvellous if at some stage you could write down some tips for us 60+ ladies, I have bought the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha beta peel pads that you suggested for me, but haven't dared to use them yet as my face has been a red sore mess from an allergy or Perioral type break out, yuk and double yuk, but face almost clear today, hooray!!

  9. Thank you this year Caroline. Your help has been immense and really appreciated. xx

  15. Hi Caroline ,

    I am in love with your blog , and after reading your blog and watching your videos on YouTube , I started using some skincare products

    I am as of now using the organic pharmacy carrot butter , lush ultra bland , first aid beauty pads, pixi tonic, ren serum, mist and Kate Somerville nourish , renewed hope in a jar,
    And I am in love with them

    My question is can I still use these products during pregnancy ? I am 28 and have a dry skin, I tend to get pimples during prefnancy(it happened with my first one)

    Can you also suggest some more products for me ?


    You are my skincare guru 😊

  16. Love your of Caroline! I love love love skincare so you blog is just brilliant for me! I've been wanting to start mine for ages and have just given it another go after a stint 4 years ago. I'm still finding my feet but I'm so happy I'm finally doing it! X
