About me

My name is Sandra, I am 29 and I am based in Glasgow/Scotland/UK. I am married and I am a mother to a beautiful boy Zachary (5) and baby girl Mia (1 year old) Motherhood is the best thing I have ever experienced and I am trying to enjoy every precious moment with my children, before they grow up. We all know, it happens too quickly.

I love skincare, make- up, fashion, photography, interior design and DIY projects.  I also love cooking and I am slightly obsessed with healthy food. I decided  to start The Black Pearl Blog to share my passion for all those things and in the past 4 (almost 5) years blogging became a big part of my life.  I absolutely love what I do, from taking blog photos, testing new products and experimenting with new healthy recipes to writing new interesting content and interacting with my readers. 

I love to ramble about lipsticks, eyeshadows or an amazing face cream I discovered and that's why most of my posts are focused on beauty.  You can also expect to see healthy meal ideas, baby & parenting blog posts, fitness updates and occasional plus size outfit, lifestyle or home decor post thrown in for good measure :) 

You can always talk to me on Twitter or follow me on Instagram to see what I am up to:
