Why hello there,

I’m Bryony, nice to meet ya.

I ended up here because of three main things.

I wanted to create a beauty blog that champions smaller brands and celebrates weird and wonderful beauty products – I kinda felt like I wanted to dig a little deeper and find the underdogs of the beauty world so that I can showcase them. Don’t get me wrong, I love mainstream brands and you will see MAC lipsticks pop up every so often.

I also wanted to create a food blog, because cooking is at the heart of life in many ways. Nothing makes me happier than being in the kitchen, cooking for people I love. I adore hosting, I adore dinner parties and I adore vintage crockery. All in all, I wanted to bring people together through food and I wanted to show people like me, who want to create something beautiful, how to do it on any budget.

Last but not least, I want to create a real community for people to use when they need a bit of a pick me up. I want people to share small brands they’ve found, great products they’ve used, wonderful recipies that have filled their tummies with happiness and what they do when they feel like everythings getting a little bit too much.

Why did I want to do this? Because adulting is hard, it’s terrifying, exhausting and no one really knows what they’re doing. But, if you look a little closer when the world seems like a big scary place, you’ll see that there are so many little things that make the day a little brighter and better – it might be a neon lavender glittery lipstick, or it might be cooking up a big lasagne for your friends, or it might be reading a post about someone else that’s having a crappy day.

All of those things you will find here, in this magical safe online space…. Welcome, my friends, to Wonderland.
