Beauty is my absolute passion and even having worked in the Beauty Industry for six years, I still love to spend my spare time trying out new discoveries. From red lipsticks to electrical facial devices, I'm always willing to trial the next best beauty product. When I'm not at work I try to explore the USA, so I'm always on the hunt for mini beauty samples to pop in my travel bag for my next flight to NYC.
