About Me

things i'm leaving in 2016
Hello lovelies,

Thank you for visiting my blog, The Cupid Bow. I’m Carly, 28, and am super proud to be able to call this my little corner of the internet to ramble about my biggest passions in life; inner beauty and outer beauty.

I started The Cupid Bow in November 2013 after deciding to embark on a makeup artistry career which acted as my springboard into the blogosphere. With the most awful Blogger template you’ve ever seen, The Cupid Bow was born. Updated regularly, you will find beauty reviews/tips, OOTD posts (that’s ‘outfit of the day’ posts in case you’re not quite down with the blogger acronyms) and wellness advice.

I truly believe that in order to hone your outer beauty, you must first focus on nurturing what makes you beautiful inside. Life has brought many experiences my way and taught me a wealth of lessons which I hope by sharing with you, will enable you to feel more confident within your own skin. If I can help just one person to feel better about themselves, then my mission has been a successful one.

In April 2014, I was lucky enough to be awarded Highly Commended in the Beauty Category at the UK Blog Awards, which I consider to date as my finest achievement. I’m hoping to get a few more awards under my blogging belt to give me something to work towards. There’s no better feeling than being recognised and rewarded for your hard work.

I love networking with other bloggers, brands, PR reps and the general public, so please do tweet me, send me a Facebook message, email, pigeon carrier, message in a bottle… Whatever you fancy as long as it is legal and unlikely to kill me. All details can be found on my Contact Me page, and all social media buttons on my homepage.

I hope you enjoy reading The Cupid Bow just as much as I enjoy creating it! I’ve loved my blogging journey so far and am so excited to see where it takes me. Come along for the ride, bring some Peanut Butter Oreos with you, and let’s journey together to become a more confident and beautiful you (on the inside and outside).
