I decided that I needed to do something different.
My life felt void of creativity and I really needed to get it back in to my life. So I took a nail course. An obvious creative choice right?! No, totally random and totally not like anything I've done before!
It was a challenge. Sculpting nails was totally new to me. Sure I'd painted my nails with polish, but I'd never even had gel nails. I had no clue! At the end of day one I cried! I was exhausted. I questioned why was I doing this? I had a career. I didn't need to do it, but giving up wasn't an option. It would be a waste and despite the challenge presented, I had the bug! The beauty bug and it felt great!
A few months after my first nail course, I went on to train in manicure & pedicure and LVL Lashes. Shortly after, I trained in HD Brows. Again the tears flowed as much as my knowledge and skill grew, but there was no stopping.
A whole new life was opening up! I went back to college and qualified as a beauty therapist. Friends and family started to come for treatments and so my beauty & wellbeing business began part time around my career and mummy duties.
In 2016, I left my career of 16 years to go solo and make my part time business, full time. It was a giant leap of faith and one I'm so pleased to have taken.
I had a renewed confidence and I wanted to try new things, express my creativity and develop new skills.. So in 2018, I started making crystal healing jewellery to sit alongside my reiki healing. First came RQ Jewellery, followed by Popstar Co accessories for mindful kids.
From gel nails, to semi-precious gemstone jewellery. I offer a collection of services & products, designed to enrich your life, day to day.
My beauty and wellbeing services work together holistically, to help you to feel fabulous!
Treatments are available at The Bothy, my private treatment room in Delph, Saddleworth. The Bothy is an oasis of healing reiki energy. A place for you to relax, renew and re-energize. A space where you can invest in yourself, body, mind & spirit.

SET YOUR INTENTIONS & harness your power
Setting intentions is a way to realise your dreams & desires.
Everything we do starts with an intention of some description. So it makes sense that we reflect on what we want our intentions to be & make them positive and fulfilling.
"The sages of India observed thousands of years ago that our destiny is ultimately shaped by our deepest intentions and desires. The classic Vedic text known as the Upanishads declares,
“You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.”
(The Chopra Centre. Section: Mind-Body Health)
Crystals & gemstones are a great starting point to help you to focus on your desires as they are connected to specific energy and emotional states.
Simply pick a crystal according to your priorities. Focus on your desire, consciously & quietly set your intentions and then let go of the result, releasing your intentions and desires to the Universe for it to work its magic!
Popstar Co accessories include a selection of semi-precious, crystal healing gemstones, fluffy pom poms cuddles and polymer clay charms.
Designed for unisex appeal & to foster good self esteem, confidence and wellness for little people.
