Hi there and welcome to Books, Beauty and Movies. The name is Emily, I prefer she/her pronouns, and you are visiting the about page of my personal blog.

Here I write about things I have a passion for – the clue is in the name: all things literature, beauty and film.

I am a LLB Law graduate currently studying a combined LPC and Masters course. I am based in Birmingham, West Midlands of England with a interest in literature of any kind, films of any genre (but partial to a good thriller/horror) and a borderline obsession with all things beauty – in addition to being a self proclaimed skin care junkie.

For a general reference:

Face: Combination skin, oily T Zone with occasional dryness centred around the nose area. Sensitive skin that is prone to break outs and trouble with redness and blemish marks in the center portion of the face.

Hair: Brunette hair – uncoloured, no particular problems. However, if I have my full fringe cut in it can become oily but that is mostly due from being in contact with my forehead.

Body:  Normal to dry, on occasion.

Skintone:  Pale princess who sometimes self tans.

Outside of my university studies, I work full time as a Generalist Advisor with Citizens Advice. I have previously worked as a customer assistant and beauty advisor for Boots part time. Therefore all views and opinions present on this blog are mine and mine only, they do not represent the views of any company. As an extension of working in retail I may make frequent reference to Boots and its offers. I am not sponsored or coerced to do so.

I also write a casual lifestyle blog, if interested click here.

I post every:

This blog does have a set schedule but I make no promises that I will adhere to that – life gets in the way sometimes.

  1. Hi Emily,

    My name is Shaun and I’m an author, just wondering if you consider reviewing books, in exchange for a free ebook copy?

    Here is a link to my book (Ewan Pendle and the White Wraith) on amazon, so you can have a look and decide if it may or may not be something you would be interested in reading – http://amzn.eu/6FjYTA3

    Thanks for taking the time to consider my enquiry, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
