As a schoolgirl I made natural beauty products, fairly unsuccessfully but this did start my interest in beauty. I had considered studying this but went to art school instead to study fashion and textiles. However, beauty has crept into my life on a few occasions. In London I had chance to work with aromatherapist Ruby Cook in her business Verde and more recently The Bath House an aristan beauty company based in Cumbria which produces wonderful products using natural and natural derived products. I can dicuss this more in my blog section, but I think that rather than mere vanity that beauty is more about self-care and about feeling good as much as looking good.
