Hi there! My name is Catherine and welcome to Lemonade & Lipstick. I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington and absolutely love it here. The blog was born as a place where I could share my favorite recipes and has blossomed into a forum where I can share my favorite makeup & beauty tips as well.
I am not a formally trained chef, however I am a graduate of the school, “My Mom Was An Awesome Cook”. Ever since I was a little girl I can remember sitting on the counter watching my mom cook. My favorite childhood recipes were always the most simple – roast beef, her salad with red wine vinegar & olive oil salad and a Brazilian side dish, Farofa. I love reading blogs, cookbooks and watching YouTube cooking videos all in my passion to create new, innovative culinary creations.
Beauty has also been a great love of mine ever since I can remember. As a young girl I would watch my mom get ready and tell her how she was the prettiest mommy in the whole world. I remember watching her apply lipstick and artfully backcomb her hair so it laid just “so”. My passion for beauty has been something that I have always had and love sharing that part of me.
When not working on my blog, I am wife to an amazing man and mom to the two, sweetest, craziest and funniest little boys I know. I can’t forget my sweet pups Cici, the Havanese and Julio, my Chihuahua. They are often both snuggled on my lap as I write my blogs. If you have an questions, inquiries or anything at all, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to hear from you!
