About Me

I’ve never been a fan of writing ‘about me’ sections. Is it because I’m an ISFJ? Who knows. But hey, there is a little factoid for you. I am an introvert, which could be why blogging comes so naturally to me. The Belle Lumiere has primarily been a beauty blog since it’s conception in 2009, but has evolved into something more of a lifestyle blog. I still share my beauty favourites (and my never ending attempts to whittle down my stash), but I also share things like what I’m reading, how I plan and organize my life, where I travel to, my health and fitness journey, personal finance, and the things I am thinking about from week to week.

Who am I? I’m Jessica, a 30 year old gal from Western Australia. You may also hear me talking about my partner Sebastian, Pepsi (the sassiest cat in the West), and everybody’s favourite beagle Ben.

  1. Hi there, I noticed you mentioned that you use the Hop Shop Go forwarding service and also use Bath and Body Works products! Just wondering if you have ordered their products through Hop Shop Go and if you have, have they ever tried to ban some of your items for being ‘flammable’?

    1. I have ordered Bath & Body Works products twice via Hop Shop Go, only once have I tried to purchase anything that would be deemed “dangerous” by mail (a body splash/perfume) and it was rejected and not purchased for some reason. So I guess yes that has happened to me! xo

  2. Hi,

    I just wanted to share the link below with you:


    It is a fun little list of top “scary” celebrity makeup blunders. It’s a fun little piece for Halloween. As a current beauty student, I found it hilarious and in fact very scary that any woman, especially women in the public eye would go out in public like that! Hope you enjoy the article and a Happy Halloween to you!
