About me

Hi everyone! My name is Laura Macdonald and I am 22 years old. I was born in Harlow, Essex and I still live in Harlow after 1 year in Luton, Bedfordshire. I am a second year university student at the university of Bedfordshire studying criminology BA (hons).

I first started out blogging as Laura's nail art ideas. I still love my nail art but I now blog about everything in beauty! The best thing about blogging so far is the amount of people I have spoken to, just as a result of this blog and how many friends I now have.

I am a big believer in #Effyourbeautystandards I am very self conscious being a plus size female, I am basically what the media hate, I want to bring confidence to others and myself. No one regardless of gender, size, mental health etc, deserves to feel self conscious about their body and for others to make nasty remarks, surely being a nice person is more important than being the right size according to the media?

My family are artistic, both of my sister's are able to draw to a very high standard, I cannot draw very well, I haven't practised enough and I do not have the patience for it personally, blogging allows me to express myself and allows my creativity to flow!

My other hobbies include gaming, photography and listening to music. I like to play a lot of games but some of my absolute favourites are Elder Scrolls, pokemon, minecraft, League Of Legends, Command & Conquer and Grand Theft Auto.

If there is anything else you'd like to know about me, feel free to leave a comment below!
Thank you for reading!


  1. Hello! I hope you don't think this is super weird but I found your blog via the Bloggers Required Google Map page...and it turns out that you live pretty close to me! I also read in your bio that you're studying Criminology which is cool. I'm studying CSI stuff at Anglia Ruskin. Anyway, I thought I'd introduce myself as I don't actually know many people who blog so...hi :) x

    1. Hey! It is not weird at all, nice meeting you :) hope your studies are going well x
