Behind The Blog

About Samantha abbott The Beauty Spyglass blog

I’m Samantha, an award-winning blogger, photographer, wife and mum to one.

What can you expect to read about on The Beauty Spyglass blog?  

Conscious living, lifestyle and ethical beauty are the main topics.

However, I believe beauty can be found everywhere, from fashion to interiors – both of which I love – both of which you’ll find featured on The Beauty Spyglass. Slow living and improving one’s wellbeing is another interest, along with sharing favourite sweet treats from the kitchen, so, expect to see food related articles here too.

I firmly support the use of plant-based skincare and I certainly won’t bamboozle you with anything other than what I believe you would benefit from using. I’ve also become very particular about the products I use (and write about here).

Imagery: Creating unique and captivating lifestyle imagery for my content is paramount and will always be originals taken by myself. I don’t use stock images. If you would like to learn more about my photography and video e-courses please visit

My 2015 Wedding was the inspiration behind the name. I wanted to give a reading for my husband on our wedding day, and after much deliberation, I chose “Atoms” from the novel The Amber Spyglass. I swapped “Amber” for beauty and twelve months later, I founded The Beauty Spyglass blog.

Work with me: If you think your brand or product would be a good fit, I would be happy to discuss partnering. Please visit the PR/Disclaimer page for further information.
