About Me

I’ve never been a fan of writing ‘about me’ sections. Is it because I’m an ISFJ? Who knows. The Belle Lumiere has primarily been a beauty blog since it’s conception in 2009, but has evolved into something more of a “mostly book sometimes beauty” blog.

Things I Love
T2 French Earl Grey Tea
Post Apocalyptic/Apocalyptic Books
A well-curated wardrobe
Writing lists
Setting personal goals
Chicken Salt
Watching conspiracy theory videos on YouTube
Classical Music
The library
A good glass of red wine on a cold night
The post-workout high
The two dumb doves that live in our backyard and scare the cat
When one of my favourite artists releases a new album
General life organization
Date night dinner and a movie
My core group of girlfriends (that I’ve had for 17 years+)
Ghost Hunters
Carlton Football Club (this seems to be a one-sided relationship)

Things I Do Not Love
Meals that combine meat + fruit (apricot chicken? why.)
Being physically unable to sleep in for the last 5 years
My feet
Other people’s feet
Filling my car with petrol
Colouring my hair

I can be contacted via email, or you could always pop over and visit me on Twitter (or Instagram).

10 Thoughts on “About Me

  1. Hi Paula, that is me 🙂 I will email you now with further information xo

  2. 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’?

    • 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

    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!
