I’m Sophie, MIW’s resident Northerner and Guniea pig! I’m so excited to be a part of this massive girly sleep over and for you to be a part of it too!

Having finished drama school in 2012, I made the move down to London and I am loving it’s crazy life style!

As the Guinea Pig, I’ll be trying out all sorts of daft things, from make up, hair colouring and nail kits to diets, crazy old wives tales and beauty ‘treatments’ all so you can get the low down on what works and whats just a load of rubbish.

I’ll also be posting every now and then a few bits and pieces that come in and out of my normal girly brain that we hopefully we can all share, probably laugh at and relate to.

So excited! I’m always excited! sophie@missindependentwoman.com  or you can tweet me!  @sophieloucraig
