About Me

Sarah Lilly - The Lilly Mint Blog

Hi, my name is Sarah Lilly. Welcome to my little corner of the internet.

I’m 28 years old and live in a small town in The Catlins, at the bottom of New Zealand.  I’m a freelance social media manager and content creator.

I began The Lilly Mint Blog about five years ago as a beauty blog. Over that time I’ve had the most wonderful opportunities and have met some incredible people. I’ve attended iD Fashion Week, and have had the opportunity to work with some of the world’s biggest beauty brands including MAC, L’Oreal, Maybelline and more. While I am eternally grateful for these amazing opportunities, I decided that traditional beauty blogging wasn’t for me. I became more interested in natural beauty and safer beauty brands, and after doing lots of research on chemicals and ingredients in most mainstream makeup I made the decision to make my blog a mostly green beauty blog. The majority of beauty products that are featured on my blog are completely natural and safe, and if they are not they will be clearly marked.

As well as my passion for natural beauty brands, I also love fashion, lifestyle, food and travel. I try to take a holistic approach to my lifestyle, and I enjoy clean eating, fitness, and yoga.. The Lilly Mint Blog is all about the things I love and personally recommend, a little like my online diary.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for taking the time to read what I write.  If you enjoy what I have to say then please feel free to also follow me on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter. Alternatively, if you’d like to work with me, or want to know more about brands I work with, then click here
