About Me

Welcome to The Happy Sloths, my name is Jasmine! I am the author of this little blog and I currently reside in British Columbia, Canada. Blogging is a hobby of mine that started all the way back in 2013 and for my "day job", I work as a Registered Nurse. My love for makeup started all way back when I was 12 or 13 (with a watermelon-flavored Lip Smackers lip gloss) and from then on, I slowly developed an addiction! I love makeup because it makes me feel more confident and the creative process is so relaxing and therapeutic! Finally, you may wonder why this blog is called "The Happy Sloths". Well, sloths are simply the cutest animals around (and believe me, they were all the rage back in 2013). Therefore, I wanted a unique, non-conventional name for a beauty blog so I settled on the Happy Sloths!
