About Phyrra
Hi, I’m Courtney. I write Phyrra, a beauty and lifestyle blog. I feature beauty, alternative fashion, awesome hair, diy, health and lifestyle. I’m seriously hair obsessed, I love bright makeup, and I have a daily skincare ritual! On Tuesdays and Fridays I share videos on Youtube. I work out 3 days a week lifting weights, rowing and running intervals. I worked in the video game industry for over 10 years and I’m a gamer, comic book geek and technophile. I’m an animal lover and I have two dogs – a standard poodle and a pug.

Have a Question or Business Proposal for me?
I love hearing from you! To discuss a business proposal, tutorial request, press inquiry, or anything else, please send me an email. If you’re interested in advertising, please see my advertising page. I have worked with Urban Decay, Cover FX, Samsung, Canon, Too Faced, NARS, crocs, Huawei, Conair, Jesse’s Girl, Ayushi, KBShimmer and other brands.

If you are contacting me about a beauty product it must be cruelty free. You can see my cruelty free beauty brand list here.

  1. Is your beauty product cruelty free?
  2. Do you (or a third party on your behalf) test your products on animals?
  3. Have any of your materials/ingredients been tested on animals?
  4. Do you sell in countries that require animal testing (like China)?
  5. Are you Leaping Bunny or PETA certified?

See my Style Coalition Profile. You can see my Fohrcard, which is linked directly to Google Analytics and shows my pageviews for the last 30 days.
