I'm veering away from my usual beauty reviews for this post to tell you all a little bit more about me... although if you follow me across my social media platforms, some of these facts will come as no surprise!
This may not interest you at all but here goes...

✮ I met my husband through one of my best friends... his sister! ... who I met when I took part in a local Strictly Come Dancing. 
✮ I have a BSc Honours Degree in Geography, however I have recently qualified as a pharmacy technician.
✮ I have been to LA and Vegas four times and will be back in Vegas for my fifth time in September! I celebrated my best friend's 21st, my own 24th and 26th birthdays there and we spent part of our honeymoon there too (click here for my post full of Vegas tips and what to do!)
✮ I am an absolute stationery geek and 'Back to School' was always one of my favourite times of the year.
✮ I love social media and I am always on it; Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook are all faves. I can also get lost pinning on Pinterest for hours!
I am a crazy cat lady. I have had many cats growing up; Honey is mum and dad's cat and Karl and I rehomed two little black and white kittens last summer, Penny and Ivy.
✮ Bad grammar, spelling and manners are my ultimate pet peeves (I have lots more!) 
✮ I am a perfectionist when it comes to writing. I am very particular about written mechanics.
I love old school and 90s music. I just love the nostalgia and the cheese that comes with it!
✮ I am a qualified 'ear piercing specialist' having worked as an Assistant Manager in Claires many years ago, but I can safely say I have no desire to pierce any more ears. Ever.
✮ Tom Cruise is my absolute childhood crush! 
✮ I write lists for EVERYthing! I rely heavily on my notebook and reminders in my phone.
✮ I lived in LA for three months six years ago in my best friend Megan's home! I absolutely adore California. Our honeymoon last year was my husband's first time there and he fell in love with it too.
✮ My all-time favourite tv shows are Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad, Revenge, Sex and the City, and Criminal Minds. I rarely watch regular Sky TV anymore, Netflix all the way!
✮ I am fascinated with anything to do with the Kardashians, their lifestyle and the whole hysteria around them engrosses me.
✮ I am an Apple girl and my iPhone is always in my hand.
✮ Crisps and cheese are my biggest weaknesses. I love a good cheeseboard!
✮ 'Stardustduck' is the name of a little pink rubber duckie that my best friend gave me, which used to be my social media handle... hence where the 'Stardust' part of my blog name came about.
✮ I am not a big fan of clothes shopping, but I take notions to go on a spree! I love a browse around Primark/Penneys, however I could shop for makeup and beauty products all day.
✮ My birthday is June 22nd, which means I was born on a 'cusp', I am a mixture of Gemini and Cancer.
✮ I worry way too much about others and opinions, but I'm slowly learning not to!
✮ I have followed Marissa Carter since her days of owning a beauty salon, long before Cocoa Brown was created.
✮ I absolutely love the sound of rain!
✮ I have always been interested in the blogging and beauty world and have had my blog set up since 2010 and only made it public last year, which took alot for me to do!

That will do for now, I really could go on and on! I enjoyed writing that and I hope you enjoyed reading it!

  2. It should be achievable and measurable, not an out of your hand. Include the goals you are working towards and link to your Instagram marketing plan. Your Instagram strategy should mention:inspiration motivation quotes

  3. Social media consulting assists you make one of the most of the social media accounts. How do you engage your audience and turn some individuals in ?brand advocates? so they inform everyone they know and see about your goods and services? SMM Panel
