Hi, I’m Artemis, thanks for looking at my blog! You may have guessed that’s not my real name, and you’d be right. But I believe my real name doesn’t truely reflect who I am, and on the internet you can be whoever you like, so please let me call myself that. The rest of me is all real.
I live in New Zealand, with two gorgeous blue-eyed ragamuffins (my husband ‘J’ and my baby son ‘C’), who make every day an adventure. I love anything that inspires creativity (including makeup, obviously), and my joy in life comes from living in the present and enjoying what I have (doesn’t stop me making wishlists of what I’d like, as you can see!).
Apart from makeup and my family, I love junk food and hot drinks, creating things in whatever form I can get my hands on, relaxing with movies and music, Redditing way too much and can’t get enough of the sexy voice of Michael Madsen.
I’m drawn to things that are a bit unusual, and like all things creepy, kooky, spooky and ooky. I especially like cosmetics and skincare that are skin-friendly and cruelty-free, and Asian beauty. I am also trying to extend my indie-makeup collection, not easy these days as am on a strict budget right now!
The Dream Factory is essentially a ‘beauty blog’, although I am opening this up to include other aspects too. I would love to hear your feedback and comments, and I am happy to accept products for review (full disclosure will be made, and an honest opinion given), please feel free to get in touch.
