My Blog

I started Blush & Pearls after realizing I had an incurable obsession with makeup and skin care products. Blush & Pearls is a site for people¬†interested in the latest beauty and skin care tips, trends and reviews, with a sprinkling of life, style and women’s health topics. Nothing makes me happier than finding budget beauty products, but I do indulge in the occasional splurge now and again if I feel it’s worth the $$$.

Who I Am

Accountant by day, beauty blogger by night. I’m a Toronto-based 30-something wife and a mother to two beautiful girls. I am in love with all things health and beauty. I believe a woman can achieve whatever she wants with a little encouragement, dedication and the right information. I am constantly striving for the best version of “me” (almost there, but not quite)…

What I Love

Family, eating, exercising (to combat the eating), laughing, learning, sleeping (very little), YouTube makeup tutorials, The Real Housewives Bravo series (don’t laugh, I know you watch it too)!

My Health

I am lucky to be in great health. I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) at the age of 23. This condition really pushed me to maintain a healthy weight by keeping my food portions in check and exercising regularly. I also have hypothyroidism. If you’re interested, I post about healthy eating and weight loss tips in my “Health” section of the blog.
