A Little About Me

Why hello!

Welcome to Pearls & Lace! My name is Jen and I’m a shopaholic, sun worshiper, lover of photography and all things pretty! I’m a west coast girl with a passion for fashion, home decor and anything to do with weddings (you can blame my recent destination wedding in Maui for that)! I hope you grab a cup of tea and enjoy reading about all the things I love!

Obsessions: Pearls. Lace. Turquoise. Peonies. Photography. Macarons. Gluten Free.

Decor + Photography: In love with anything that’s pretty, romantic and ethereal.

Favorite Designers: J.Crew. BCBG. Tory Burch. Kate Spade. Anthropologie.

Hair: This is my natural color, I’ve never dyed or streaked my hair. I couldn’t live without my amazing curling iron; I use The Bombshell by Sultra 1-inch rod – if you’ve never heard of it you must check it out, it’s worth its weight in gold!

Pastime: I love to shop, drink tea and spend time with my wonderful husband!

Camera: Canon 6D with a 50mm 1.2L lens.

Home: Vancouver BC.

Smarts: I have a Bachelors of Science in Human Kinetics and currently work at a physiotherapy clinic doing rehabilitation.

If you still feel like you don’t know me well enough, you can check out this cute post I did about myself or drop me at line at pearlsandlaceblog@gmail.com! I’d love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by ♥
