Hey girls! First of all I want to apologise for the lack of blog posts recently. I have been super busy with my new job and with working full time now, I don’t have as much time to dedicate to my blog.. but that is all about to change and now that I have a good work life balance I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things! I’ve had so many lovely messages from you all asking when I will be getting back to blogging and now I’m finally ready to jump back in properly.

I have always wanted to work with businesses and companies that are local to me and help to promote them through the power of my blog – so you can imagine my delight when Jenny from The Academy of Clinical Training & Urban Retreat got in touch with me. The Academy is based in the Broadwood area of Cumbernauld just outside of Glasgow and offers accredited courses in a wide range of beauty therapies and treatments using top of the range products, equipment and trainers.

The Academy’s aim is “to provide the highest standard of educational, professional and accredited training in a luxury real spa”. The Academy has some absolutely amazing courses which are suitable for everyone and anyone interested in becoming qualified in their chosen beauty field.. or all of them for that matter!

Courses are varied within the Academy, from Dermaplaning to Dermarolling, Acrylic Nails, Waxing, Lash Lifts, Facials, Make-Up Artistry and much more there is something to suit everyone and gives current practitioners within the beauty industry an amazing opportunity to learn from the best and increase their knowledge and treatment lists. As previously mentioned, The Academy also features it’s very own in house spa, Urban Retreat, which gives students a place to practice within a real life spa environment.

Urban Retreat is also a place that you lovely ladies can go to get some fab treatments for yourself.. in fact, I am going to be visiting Urban Retreat for my first time ever trying Dermaplaning this week and I am super excited to try it (blog post to follow).

To find out more about the Academy and all of their course dates, times and prices you can visit their fab website or send an e-mail to for more information.

As I say I have a blog post coming on my Dermaplaning treatment too.. I can’t wait to share my experience with you all!

Thanks so much for reading and lots of love until next time,
