Thanks for stopping by! I thought it would be a good idea to add an 'about me' page, because that's where I always go first on other peoples blogs. I didn't do it at first because I had my New To Blogging Post but I realise now that people probably aren't going to scroll all the way to the beginning of my blog to find out a bit about me. So without further ado, here I am!
I live in the lovely Lake District, and I have done for the last 10 years. It's so beautiful and peaceful, I feel very lucky to be here.
I called the blog maspooase, because it's the initals of Make A Silk Purse Out Of A Sows Ear - which is what I feel like I'm trying to do most of the time! I can be found on twitter @maspooase.
Here's why I love the lake district, this was taken at a place called Wastwater, check out the backdrop....
And no I didn't climb up the hill, am quite happy to stay at the bottom near the ice cream van...
I've tried really hard with my blog to sprinkle in a few other things so it doesn't get too 'samey' for people who aren't nail nuts like me, but I always go back to that pesky polish
For many many years I bit my nails, and only stopped doing that when I was about 19, which sadly for me means I've got quite short nail beds, but have got no one to blame but myself, I make up for it by pampering them now. I'm constantly struggling with my dry cuticles and have bought twenty five squillion products to try to hydrate them! OK I was exaggerating there - but only a bit...
My favourite polish is Nails Inc's Electric Lane, my maspooase profile pic is it painted over a purple polish called Metallic Storm from Yardley which I don't think is made anymore:
I've never been offered PR freebies, but if I was I'd turn them down. I have nothing against other people doing it, it's just I would rather review the things I want to buy, rather than things that advertising companies want us to look at.
I think that way, hopefully the people who like my blog are people with the same interests as me, therefore if I start reviewing random PR things I kind of think it's getting away from the reason I started my blog in the first place, which was to share knowledge of the things I like and let you know if I buy things that don't deliver what they promise so you don't waste your money as well!
And I think that's about it! I've rambled on long enough (am good at that!) hopefully you enjoyed my little 'tour of me'
Oh! By the way, my name's Wendy :)
I hope I see you about, don't be a stranger!
