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! In 2016 we expanded our family and welcomed our baby girl into the world, Aurelia.

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 2017, feeling limited by nail polish, I decided to turn skorchcake.com into a lifestyle blog. Today I cover all of my favorite topics, travel, beauty, being a Mom, food, and my general musings on life. I hope you enjoy it!
