• About Gee Whiskers

    Hey hey,

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I am Charlene, a full time Senior Consultant and beauty blogger by night. I am based in Cape Town, South Africa. I have a little dachshund, Scamp, who often features on my blog and in my social media accounts. Below is a little bit more about my blog, why I blog and probably more importantly, answering the "why is your blog called Gee Whiskers when it is a beauty blog?" question I often get asked.

    Behind the name:
    As far back as I can remember I have often used the saying “Gee Whiskers” as an exclamation when I see something that surprises me (in both a good and bad way).  I also LOVE dogs (dachshunds in particular) and therefore it seemed fitting to choose as a name for my blog. It might not be "beauty orientated" but it is personal and I strive for my blog to reflect who I truly am.

    About the blog:
    I started Gee Whiskers as a hobby to share the things I love in my makeup drawer and what I longed to own.  It has grown into a very personal space for me to share my thoughts on products, spa treatments and at times, decor finds.  I take my blogging seriously (despite it being a hobby) and because it is a very personal undertaking for me, I will always share truthful comment about the products / services I review.  I at times do receive products to test out and review, but in the media kit I send brands and PR companies I specifically state that I will not feature a product on my blog if I feel it has not lived up to its claims. This is to ensure the integrity of this blog and also to be upfront with the brands I choose to work with. 

    You can visit my About.Me site if you would like to learn a bit more about me.

    Hope you enjoy browsing through my blog posts.  If you have any comments, questions or constructive criticism, please leave a comment on the post entry or email me at Charlene@geewhiskers.com.

    Big Hugs,
    Charlene XXX
