About Me

The Beauty Type Career well being, lifestyle and beauty blog from Northamptonshire

The Beauty Type blog is a career well-being, lifestyle and beauty blog. Written by Lisa Scott, who is a Suffolk girl now living on the  Northamptonshire/Cambridgeshire border.

The concept of ‘The Beauty Type’ was created from my love of beauty products and the ‘type’ part is my dream of journalism. Ever since I was a child, I wanted to be a journalist. It’s a dream I pursued from school up until my university. I was one of those rare kids that had their five year plan sorted. I spent most of my life writing about ANYTHING and everything. I studied¬†Print Based Media¬†at college and then went onto studying a Journalism BA at City University, London. I achieved a 2:1 from my degree.

After university, my plan didn’t extend that far and so I went on to moving to Northamptonshire after a stint in London, Essex and Hertfordshire. Northamptonshire was a move for my now husband but it lead me to picking up my first job as a marketing assistant in an insurance based role.

It bored me to death by the end, I became ill, hated my job and the politics that came from it all made me physically and mentally unwell, something I didn’t notice until I left. By the end of 2018 I was at breaking point. If I hadn’t have made the brave decision to leave, I would have said or done something I regret. So as the first month of the year rolled around, I walked out of the house crying as I didn’t want to go to work. I handed in my resignation and the rest they say, is history.

Since March 2018, I have become the editor of Northampton Life magazine, the county’s biggest online magazine. I have started a freelance business and become self employed in social media marketing and account management. I have taken my blog up a notch and earned the most from it this year than ever before.

I’ve now worked with some incredible brands, not just in Northamptonshire but nationwide companies…

One of my most notable partnerships includes working with Nivea UK where I am a Nivea Family member as a brand ambassador. I visited their HQ in 2018 where I was the only blogger to meet with industry professionals and the Nivea marketing team to discuss blogging and partnerships.

I have worked with Soap and Glory on some of their campaigns like this Christmas gift guide. I am a Car Shop UK ambassador where I won ambassador of the month for my social content. I received a Leesa Mattress where we worked on a collaborative post on our renovation.

I have collaborated with Simply Be to highlight their makeup department and have joined JD Williams in homeware reviews.

I have also worked with food industry companies such as Gousto Food Boxes which was one of my favourite posts to work on.

I have provided restaurant and food based reviews for many restaurants, notably through Northampton Life but also through my blog. These include Grosvenor Casino restaurant review, Miele Taste for Design food experience and cooking Christmas dinner with AEG!

What can you expect from The Beauty Type?

The Beauty Type focuses on career well being which includes freelancing, self employment and mental health awareness. It also encompasses my passion in makeup and skincare as well as my love for food, lifestyle and interiors. You could say it’s a fair few topics but I find that it allows my personality to shine, share my hobbies but also educate people on my experiences.
