Hello World!

Welcome to The beautyspotsblog. I started The BeautySpots blog in 2016, under the name: “thebeautyspots.com”; so this is an update, a refresh, a start over or whatever else you would like to call it.

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Research Methods from QUB.  My studies in Research and Marketing inspired me to launch this blog, as an outlet to share my discoveries in beauty, fashion, travel and lifestyle.

This blog, which I started for pleasure, aims to regularly highlight fascinating or not so fascinating (depending on my opinion) views on beauty, skincare, fashion, travel and lifestyle. Treasures, brought to you, from the emerald isle and further afield.

Living near Belfast, Northern Ireland, grants me access to the most beautiful treasures Ireland has to offer and I will, certainly,  strive to share my discoveries and reviews with anyone who are interested.

All my opinions are my own, I wouldn’t have it any other way.


What’s your skintone?
I have combination skin, with a light surface tone and warm peachy undertones.  I tan easily, I don’t get a lot of sun (remember I live in Ireland).
My foundation color changes frequently, but a few favorites I have include; Clinique even better SPF 15, Estée Lauder Double Wear and L’Oreal True Match.

What kind of camera do you use? Who takes your photos?
Since the start of my blog I’ve used two different cameras and I also use my iPhone for some photographs.
The vast majority of the photos on this blog have been shot, by myself and www.gerardcreighton.com. The cameras used include; Sony A7 Mk2 and a Canon 6D.


I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them!
