This is the face behind the keyboard.

My name is Dani and I live in colorful Colorado. I am a 27-year-old stay-at-home mom of two beautiful girls. When I’m not trying out new beauty products or blogging, I’m knitting, playing peekaboo, reading, or cooking. I was born in Illinois, but grew up in California. I moved to Colorado when I was 21 years old. I’ve been interested in makeup since I was around 16 but didn’t get into fashion until I was around 20. I’m still not too invested in hair care, but I’m slowly getting into it even though I have no idea what I’m doing. My new obsession is nail art, which only cropped up after I stopped my lifelong habit of biting my fingernails.

I believe everyone deserves to feel beautiful. That’s why I started blogging about beauty products in 2009, which slowly grew into this website. I wanted a way to share reviews, tutorials, and other beauty-related ideas with like-minded people.

I love hearing from my readers so if you have any questions or comments, or just want to say hello, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will do my best to respond to everyone, but remember that I do get busy. Welcome to The Beautiful Book Nerd website!
