About Me

I'm a 30 year old Canadian girl, born all the way across the world in St. John's, Newfoundland. I now live in Brisbane, Australia with my amazing husband who is supportive of my makeup obsession!

Bows & Pleats was originally created for fellow everyday beauty addicts like myself or anyone keen to explore and be creative with makeup and beauty products, regardless of their level of experience.

Moving forward, this blog has turned into a little creative nook for me, that has extended beyond just beauty and motivated me to share more with you all about my lifestyle including organisation, finances, minimalism, travel, fashion, outfits of the day and everything in between.

Please feel free to browse my blog, comment and ask any questions you may have - I want it to be a fun place to visit! I'd love to connect with you through the platforms on the right sidebar.

When, I'm not blogging you can find me lazing on the beach, checking out a local cafe, watching netflix or playing with my cat!
