I'm Emily, nice to meet you.
I'm a 20-something London-girl on a quest to stay healthy and enjoy life to its fullest. Sparkle and Shade reflects all sorts of things I love - cooking, exercise, healthy living, beauty, make up and any other little bits that pop my way.
I try to view life as an awesome adventure, and am a strong believer in sharing journeys and encouraging positivity. I share more than just beauty reviews and recipes here these days, and I hope that those parts are just as enjoyable for you.
In April 2012, I developed Non-Epileptic Seizure Disorder (also known as NEAD or dissociative seizures). There's a link up in the header bar if you want to learn more about them.
Pull up a pew, grab a cup of tea and maybe a brownie and enjoy browsing around.
