All about


Patti at homeI’m Patti Covello Pietschmann a freelance writer specializing in luxury travel, spas, cruises, beauty products, and self  improvement. I’ve been published in guide books, newspapers and magazines around the world, and on the world wide web.

 I’m opionated, edgy and honest–I only write about what I know up close and personal.  I accept free trips (quite honestly who can afford to pay these days) and products for  review.  I sample everything you read on my blogs and report honestly and subjectively.

Patti’s Pledge if I don’t personally test, taste,sample or see it I won’t review it.

Unlike some claims I take mine seriously and adhere faithfully. I am linked in, I twitter and facebook as  pattipietsch at both  and check them out, become my friend and/or follow me. I’m fun, at least I think so. LOL.patti

  1. Greetings Patti!

    I absolutely adore your blog! You always have great products to share with your viewers and Because of that, I would like to introduce to you, Lauren Luke, the self-taught makeup artist turned entrepreneur by way of YouTube. Her new color cosmetics line — By Lauren Luke — launches on April 27th to the delight of her friends and followers who’ve watched her makeup tutorials over 39 million times.

    Called “The World’s Most Popular Makeup Artist” by the BBC, the line includes five full-face palates with shades hand-picked by Lauren and tutorials meant to maximize the kit’s value and glam quotient. It will be sold exclusively on her website
    Lauren’s story, though just beginning, is a thrilling one –

    -39 million views of her video tutorials
    -The UK’s #1 YouTube Channel
    -A recent 30 minute BBC documentary on her story
    -A starring role in a new Nintendo DS game about to be launched
    -Appearances to date include CBS, Vanity Fair, Elle, Look Magazine and Radio 1
    -A book deal with Hodder set to release this fall
    -And even meet and greet with the Queen of England!

    Growing up in the proud yet humble English town of South Shields, Lauren posted her first tutorial on YouTube just 18 months ago. The 27-year-old single mother started posting the videos to enhance her gig selling makeup on Ebay – an opportunity she seized so she could quit her job as a taxi dispatcher and spend more time with her then 9 –year-old son, Jordan.

    Lauren never had many girlfriends growing up but has found a wealth of new ones on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Myspace. She’s in daily contact with them, whether posting a new video or just catching up. Her goal in life? Simply, “I just want to make people feel special and happy.”

    I’ve included our press kit here ( and a few of her tutorials to give you an idea of what it is that’s got everybody buzzing. Hope you find the story as interesting and exciting as we do. Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
