Exciting changes at beautyheaven
2015 has been a year of exciting changes for the beautyheaven team, so we’d like to take this opportunity to bring you all up to speed with the latest happenings in the office!
Firstly, it is with heavy hearts that we announce that the incredible and inspiring woman responsible for bringing beautyheaven to life eight years ago, Jackie Maxted, is bidding farewell to bh. Here is Jackie’s personal message to you – our members (tissues at the ready, ladies!)…
beautyheaven and I have had a wonderful journey together - and by beautyheaven I really mean you, the amazing members, as well as the beauty brands who support us, and of course the clever people who work here.
So it is with much sadness that I have to say goodbye and thank you. Jobs like mine are rare - I have had the privilege and opportunity to share in eight years of building something very special. I'm proud of beautyheaven for so many reasons, but one of the most important is that we are part of a community that actually and genuinely cares. And not just about our mascara, fragrance and foundation choices (although those are OBVIOUSLY worthy and necessary conversations!!) but moreover about each other. You wouldn't believe the number of sincere thank you messages we receive here at bh HQ - many to say how much they appreciate belonging to such a special community. I don't know exactly what we all did, but whatever it was, we have created something magical here and for that, I will always be proud.
I'm leaving everything here with no real plans, apart from some exciting travel adventures as well as spending precious time with my growing family. Of course I'll be staying in regular contact with the people who continue to make beautyheaven the best it can be and I'll be dropping in here from time to time to see what's new and what's happening.
So, farewell bh members, and a heartfelt thank you for everything you have contributed, especially those who have been around since the very early days. Without you, we would just have been another website, but together we are unstoppable!
Have a wonderfully happy festive season and I wish you all a calm and peaceful 2016.
On behalf of the entire beautyheaven team, we thank Jackie from the bottom of our hearts for giving each of us the opportunity to be part of beautyheaven, and we will all miss her dearly.
In exciting news, we’re thrilled to welcome back bh’s Online Manager, Michelle Blancato, who will be returning from maternity leave in January and stepping into the role of General Manager.
As some of you may know, we recently farewelled the fabulous bh Editor, Carli Alman. She has left behind some very large shoes to fill, but I’m excited to announce that I’ve stepped into the role of Editor of bh. Also, we’ve recently welcomed the lovely Anna Bradley to the bh team as Content Producer. Anna was previously Content Producer on our sister site homeheaven, which will be closing on December 18. For more information about the homeheaven site closure, click HERE.

From all of us here at beautyheaven, we thank you for your continued and unwavering support and we look forward to bringing you an even bigger and better bh in 2016!
We wish you all a beauty-filled Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
