Welcome to my blog

My name is Charlene and welcome to Pretty Please Charlie. Here I share news and reviews of beauty products, toys, events, fashion and whatever else I feel may add value to your life. I realise that a new lipstick or a Nirvana tee (which I am still searching for by the way) may not be life-changing, but if it can put a smile on your face, I’ve done my job. I try my best to keep this a positive space as life is hard enough, so expect to only see positive reviews. Oh, and I try to add a healthy dose of giveaways, because who doesn’t like to win?! I hope you enjoy your time here!
