About Charlotte



In 2012, I left my career in Telecoms and started indie business Black Heart Creatives, laser cutting my way into the world of acrylic jewellery overnight. Six years on, Black Heart Creatives’ impressive but affordable statement pieces  have been featured in fashion and style pages including Vogue and NME.

I love writing and have blogged on many platforms for the past 15 years and had several different blogs, including a music/zine, crafting and plus size fashion and lifestyle blog.  Reality Surrounding started in 2009 and was a mixture of plus size blogging, lifestyle, feminism and opinion pieces.  When Black Heart Creatives started I started a new craft blog to work along side the business, but it never really seemed to fit with what I was doing.  So the two were merged, and changed its name to Black Heart Creatives Blog, to create what you see today. 

I don't write about them much anymore on my blog but you can see me talk about plus size issues on my Twitter (which has been called hilarious and thriving and no I am not above retweeting or telling you about praise like this, enjoy the thirst) and places like StylefruitsBustle and Buzzed and have been featured in the Daily Mail and Now Magazine. 

My other passion is beauty, cosmetics and skin care and I have worked with several brands including Kiehls Sourz, Bleach London, Lush, Neals Yard Remedies and The Marriott Hotel. I am happy to receive items and experiences to review as long as they are relevant to me and my blog.  If a post includes a gifted item or an item that is being reviewed this will be fully disclosed at at the end of the post.  All reviews are entirely my own and honest opinions.  Sponsored posts are only accepted under negotiation and will be fully disclosed on the post.  Sorry but I don't accept pre written content.
