We’re Helen and Sheenie, who possibly know a thing or two about nail polishes and lipsticks.
We came up with Just Nice Things in March 2009 because one of us has way too many bottles of nail lacquers and an English degree, and the other is a qualified journalist who’s dabbled as a make-up artist (and has a qualification in it).
The blog has led one of us to share a roof-top pool on national television with a former British politician and disgraced cabinet minister (Helen) and taken us backstage at London Fashion Week four years on the trot.
Sheenie lives in London with her cat Sonu, is a keen photographer, baker and cook as well as a professional procrastinator.
She also has her own cookery blog (www.cookwithsheenie.co.uk) featuring her famous ‘Butter Chicken’ recipe and restaurant blog simply entitled Eat with Sheenie. You may also find Sheenie writing for Halal Gems, a digital magazine for foodies and their website.
Helen resides in Buckinghamshire and likes make-up (obviously), shoes and all nice things that make people happy and look nice and sparkly. She also has killer talons. Which might justify the nail varnish obsession. And she has three cats.
Helen rarely wears the same shade of nail varnish two days in a row, and would like to use this space to apologise for any lemmings created as a result of this site.
We would like to thank everyone who visits our blog, reads it, comments on it and continues to come back. We truly value every visitor and couldn’t continue without your support.
