Beauty In Bloom by Charlotte Hawkins

For my first blog post I wanted to do a little intro into how things began..

I’m Charlotte owner and founder of Beauty in Bloom, UK, I started this journey back in January 2015 following a big decision to move back to England from St Maarten to my hometown to be closer to family and to start to put down some real roots. With a passion for all things beauty and a bucket load of determination I chose to ignore advice and start my own beauty business.

From day one I said to myself that I would give this new challenge one year, if after 12 months there was no progress or growth, I’d admit defeat and move on. So here I am after 2 ½ amazing years still loving it, doing my own thing, taking on something completely new.

After much thought and a little research, I now feel ready to share what I’ve learnt over the past 13 years of experience in the Hair, Beauty & Wedding Industry. This blog will feature everything from my favourite products, a simple ‘how to’ or ‘what not to do’, I’ll give you an honest, down to earth advice on all aspects of the real world in beauty.

Despite having a professional opinion, I consider myself to also have a realistic view and although I’m a qualified Beauty Therapist and have been for 8 years (I can’t believe I’m going to admit this!!) it was only 3 years ago that I started with an appropriate skincare routine myself. Consequently realising that if it’s taken me this long to take care of my skin perhaps I should pass on this knowledge.

So if you’re looking for real, simple and straightforward beauty suggestions then you’ve come to the right place!

Or if there is something you particularly want to know about then drop me an email and I can feature on it.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next post.
