About Me

Hi there!

My name is Becky but I go by my gamer-tag “Gwenayfer” or Gwen. I always wanted to be named Gwen so it’s a little bit of a fantasy name for me. Is that weird? Maybe, but that’s me. I’ve been a hardcore gamer for most of my 20’s and some of my late teens. So, I’m an uber nerd and dang proud of it!

I live in the Midwest with my Golden Retriever Darwin. Yes, he is adorable. Yes, he eats things…like my duvet and…my cat. I have a cat named Miss Elizabeth Bennett “Lizzie” for short and she is one feisty mamasita. I also live with my husband Mark who is an Astronomer – no, not an Astrologer, an Astronomer. He studies…I dunno, globular whatsits and bineray whosits? But whatever, he’s a physics nerd who secretly steals my Boscia blotting linens and openly takes baths with bubble bath from Lush. Yup, that’s my hubs. Now if only I could get him to shave more often.

I was born in Central American – I know, hard to believe with my MAC NC-25 skin but it’s true. I am 100% Latina. Which means 1. I am curvylivious and 2. my hair can frizz like nobody’s business. I lived in Miami for a really long time and then moved north. I adore the cold but I hate driving in snow.

My big confession on this blog is that I bought my first make-up in 2009 for a job interview and I didn’t wear it again until 2013, when I was 28 years old. I am now a self proclaimed makeup addict and I couldn’t be happier. I always felt odd when people said “makeup gives me an extra spring to my step.” IT IS SO TRUE! I don’t need it to be beautiful but I love knowing that there is hot pink on my eyelids.

I hope that you enjoy my blog and following me on this adventure as I learn about makeup, beauty, and being a complete girly girl! Feel free to contact me on Twitter, Facebook, whatever – or at [email protected]
