About Jetson:

“I’ve always had an acting interest in make-up and clothes. From beaming proudly waiting for my Mum to pick me up from my first day of school with newly ‘cut’ bangs of which I’d done with a blunt pair of kiddie scissors. To sitting in Graphic Design class colouring my hair with poster paints. Collecting odd, chunky buttons and stuffing them on an old piece of string to adorn my neck. Not to mention piercing my own ears with safety pins, and attempting to sew my own clothes during a textiles class; which promptly resulted in me being ‘sent out’ of lesson due to attaching a small group of classmates together.

I’m not saying I’ve been conformist in my approach, but I’ve had heart.

The hours I’ve spent surfing the internet browsing at trends and one-offs, compiling wish-lists of items I’d love to adorn. Adding clothing pages to my bookmarks, mentally trying things on in my head, creating new looks from eclectic pieces. Browsing through carefully thought out displays in malls, souks, stands, markets and stores.

I’m a woman…A woman who enjoys shopping. Visually, theoretically and physically. I also enjoy putting outfits and looks together and experimenting with cosmetics and looks.

That’s why it was just about high time I donned my thinking cap, put my newly polished nail to the keys and begin this blog by saying a big “Hello” and “Thanks for dropping by”.

Along with having worked a stint at Bliss magazine and the BBC, I’ve produced regular reviews and articles for Big City Rednecks Magazine and Beat Your HeART Out Magazine as well as digital manipulations for Twist Unique Clothing (tip of the cap to editors Rose Dennen, Tamzin Forster and Carol Dewison).

Currently an Account Director in day-to-day life; this blog allows me an outlet for discussing and expressing – not only current trends in fashion and beauty, but interesting and unique finds, that you may find fun, interesting and/or entertaining.

If so, feel free to put your feet up, pop on a sunhat (don’t forget your SPF 15) and stick around!”

  1. Your blog is phenomenal! It’s wonderful how you put yourself out there and have such insightful things to say and vivid content to post. I love absolutely all of it, and since you are so beautiful I trust your advice. I do not generally follow blogs, yours is the first blog I’ve followed and commented on. Keep up the amazing work!

    1. Hey there!

      Firstly, welcome!
      And secondly; thank you so much for your kind words. That means a lot actually.

      I’m really very glad you enjoy the blog and hope you come by again soon :D

  2. I dont know how I got here but im glad I did:) this blog is amazing and you seem like such an interesting, kind, creative person. Not to mention absolutely gorgeous! I never read blogs but I am definetl going to be hooked to yours:)

  3. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
    for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had
    issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  4. I simply want to tell you that I am just all new to blogging and seriously loved you’re website. More than likely I’m going to bookmark your blog post . You really have impressive well written articles. Cheers for sharing your web page.

  5. I am thinking about cutting my hair like Mollie King and see you cut yours like hers. I love it!! Could you tell me if it has any layers in it or all one length

    1. Hey there!

      Good for you! It’s actually really nice having shorter hair, much more manageable; especially in the warm weather.

      My hair is quite thin/fine; so too may layers thins a style out too much. Some layers are always good though; especially around the face :)

    1. Hi there Dana,

      Firstly, thank you for your message; that is definitely something I would like to be a part of, thank you for thinking of me.

      I think number 3 would be very fitting; part of driving traffic and also promoting your product: “3) Product Giveaway. You can host a contest for your blog readers and we’ll send your winner a product. Our makeup brush sets would be great for this”.

      I look forward to hearing from you.
