Hello! I’m Debra-Bow. I’m a twenty-something, half Thai and half British, Yorkshire based blogger. I created my blog focusing around all things makeup, skincare and anything else beauty related but over time it’s transitioned into both a lifestyle and beauty blog; giving me the freedom to share more of my life on here which is exactly what I always envisioned.
My little online space was born in November 2015 after I had dwelled on creating my very own blog since around 2008-09, just when the beauty industry on YouTube was truly kicking off. I spent hours sat in my parent’s lounge at the computer my mum had bought me in the corner of the room watching tutorials, from ‘how to do a fishtail braid’ to ‘the perfect smokey eye’ and this is exactly how I found some of my favourite influencers today.
Of course, as a 12 year old engulfed in this whole new beauty industry within the YouTube community I found it hard to share with friend’s and family my true interests. This is exactly why it took me 7 years to finally create a blog and be where I am today. Luckily, for me and millions of others with the same interest we can now freely and proudly share to the universe all of our interests within the blogging, writing, youtube and filming industry without it being an alien subject.
Writing is a true passion of mine, anyone that know’s me personally will tell you the same. Although I studied hospitality during school and at college, a subject that is not related to any of the topics I’m interested in now (although I am partial to the odd cheesecake recipe on here!) I still enjoyed writing within it. I spent hours on assignments, doing double and even triple of the requirement because I just loved showing my true ability in a subject I adored. This has completely transferred over to my lifestyle and beauty blog as non of my blog posts are half hearted and you’ll only find honest and well thought out content.
I really hope that each and every one of you reading this “about me” page will love reading my blog as much as I love working on it. Please remember that with every photograph, every word, every post – theres much more behind it than just a girl sat behind a laptop. I love you, and I love this space so much. Enjoy! x
