Welcome to paperbeauty!
I’m Jen, the person behind paperbeauty, which originally started as way for me to share some of my favourite things. Lately, it’s been evolving as I explore more about the world of natural food and green beauty. Now, it mostly involves the new recipes I’ve been trying, the makeup and beauty products I’m testing, along with anything else that is keeping me amused.
I’d love to say that I’m a clean living model of a natural life, but you would be SORELY disappointed. For example, I try reallllyyy hard at yoga, but still can’t for the life of me achieve an impressive down dog.
What I am really passionate about it is that I prefer to eat food which is delicious and does me some good, over the ‘tasty but nutritionally void’ options (Haribo, I’m looking at you, you weirdly addictive little things. How do they even make you!?). If I aim for 80% of my food to be natural, healthy and packed with good stuff, then I can enjoy a takeaway pizza without feeling bad (physically or emotionally).
I’m also applying the same thinking to beauty and makeup and learning more about the world of green beauty. I’m doing this gradually and testing out natural, organic alternatives when my traditional products need replacing.
I also have an unrelenting love of killer whales (thanks Blackfish) and big ambitions for my knitting.
If you enjoy my rambles or would like to know more, I’d absolutely love to hear from you. Leave a comment, send me an email or a tweet to say hello!
