About me

Hello I'm Stacey.  Welcome to my blog!

Here's a little bit about me, the 'expat make up addict'.

I started this blog in November 2012 as a way to share my absolute love of all things beauty related.

I moved to Dubai in 2005 and have lived and worked here every since.  I am originally from Cumbria in the UK.

I live with my three 'babies'-my cats, Chesney, Fizzy and Ali.

I love my job and am a total workaholic.  I need to work to pay for my love of make up, cocktails, diamonds and shoes!

On the 14/7/14 I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and I have spoken openly about my treatment and recovery on this blog.  I am passionate about raising awareness about this illness.  

I love social media!  Please feel free to chat with me on twitter, instagram or email me on expatmuaddict@gmail.com
