Hi! My name is Carly! I founded Lipgloss and a Backpack to share my love of travel and beauty with the world!
I’m a pretty normal thirty-something working and studying (both full-time!) in Canada. Before I settled down here I spent my early twenties living and working abroad in Europe and Latin America. Although I’m no longer living the ex-pat lifestyle I still make travel a priority and have visited about thirty-five different countries over the past ten years. I usually find myself traveling solo because I like to visit places that aren’t always that popular with mainstream tourists.
When I’m not working, studying or traveling, I’m on the hunt for the latest and greatest in skincare, cosmetics and fragrance. I love products that use powerful natural ingredients and deliver on their promises, and I’m always happy to share stories of my holy grail (and holy fail!) beauty finds. About ten years ago I also decided to try out a vegetarian lifestyle, which ended up doing wonders for my health and beauty (and it’s been surprisingly easy to find great vegetarian food all around the world!).
I am always interested in forming mutually beneficial partnerships. I am available for interviews and guest posts with the right beauty and travel websites. I am also available for unbiased reviews if you’ve got a product or experience that will wow me. Similarly, a limited amount of advertising space may be available on Lipgloss and a Backpack for the right brands.
