About Me

I’m an ex-pat Brit who has been living in Los Angeles for the past few years. I met and fell in love with my husband in 2007 (gasp, so long), while we were both working in the airline industry. I was a flight attendant, he was a flight dispatcher. To cut a long story short, we lived in various places before settling on LA. We both love the creativity here and the weather helps too!


I originally started this blog to showcase my love of all things nail polish! I wanted to share my reviews, nail art designs and opinions with like minded polish lovers! Glitter makes me extremely happy, as does anything shiny or sparkly. I swear I was a magpie in my previous life.

In 2015, feeling limited by nail polish, I decided to turn skorchcake.com into a lifestyle blog. Today I cover all of my favorite topics, travel, make up, nail polish, food, and my general musings on life. I hope you enjoy it!
